Range analysis with Matomo

In pursuit of our legitimate interests (i.e. the interest in analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online product range in the meaning of Art. 6 [1f] GDPR), we employ Matomo, an open source software for the statistical evaluation of user access. The IP address of users is abbreviated before it is saved. However, Matomo uses cookies, which are stored on the computer of the user and permit analysis of the use of the online product range by the user. Pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be produced with the data processed.

The information generated by the cookie on your use of this online product range is stored on our server and not passed on to third parties.

Many browsers have a Do Not Track option with which the evaluation of your access is suppressed. This option is often activated by default; Matomo analyses this information and does not save your access if this option is activated.

You have the option here to activate a cookie on your computer, which permits Matomo to recognise that you do not your access to be stored. You can see here whether Do Not Track is activated in your browser:

Newsletter

The following information tells you more about the contents of our newsletter, the registration, mailing and statistical evaluation process and your right of cancellation. By subscribing to our newsletter, you hereby declare your agreement to its receipt and the procedure described. We forward newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereafter “newsletter√¢‚Ǩ¬ù) only with the consent of the recipient or legal permission. If its contents are described in detail as part of the registration for the newsletter, they are decisive for the consent of the user. Otherwise, our newsletter includes information on our products, offers, campaigns and our company.

Registration for our newsletter occurs via a so-called double opt-in procedure. In other words, following registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary to prevent someone else registering with third-party e-mail addresses. Registrations for the newsletter are recorded in order to be able prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes in your data stored at the mailing service provider are likewise recorded.

Mailing of the newsletter is performed by CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, hereinafter termed “mailing service provider.√¢‚Ǩ¬ù You can view the data protection provisions of the mailing service provider here: www.cleverreach.com/en/privacy-policy/. Furthermore, according to the mailing service provider, it can use this information in pseudonymous form, i.e. without allocation to a user, to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the mailing and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes, to determine from what countries the recipients come from. However, the mailing service provider does not use the data of our newsletter to write to the recipients itself or to pass it on to third parties.

To register for the newsletter, all you have to do is state your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask for a name for the purpose of personal address in the newsletters.

The newsletter includes a so-called “web beacon√¢‚Ǩ¬ù i.e. a pixel-sized file, which upon opening of the newsletter can be retrieved from the server of the mailing service provider. As part of this retrieval, technical information is initially collected, such as information about the browser and your system as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval. This information is used for the technical improvement of the service on the basis of the technical data or target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the assistance of the IP address) or the access times. The statistics collected also include determining whether the newsletter was opened, at what time and which links were clicked. For technical reasons, this information can admittedly be attributed to individual newsletter recipients. But it is not our intention or that of our mailing service provider to observe individual users. The evaluation helps us rather to become familiar with the reading habits of our users and adjust our contents to them or send different contents according to the interests of our users.

The use of the mailing service provider, collection and analysis of statistics and recording of the registration procedure occur on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1f) GDPR. We are interested in deploying a user-friendly and secure newsletter system, which serves both our business interests as well as the expectations of the users.

Consequently, you can cancel our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. Your consent to its mailing by the mailing service provider and the statistical analyses are deleted simultaneously. Unfortunately, separate revocation of mailing by the mailing service provider or of statistical analysis is not possible. You can find a link for the cancellation of the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. If users have only registered for the newsletter and have cancelled this registration, their personal data is deleted.
