Double-Opt-In and Logging
Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. The registrations to the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address.
Statistical collection and analyses
When you call up the newsletter, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the call-up are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. This information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients for technical reasons. However, it is not our intention to observe individual users. The analyses are more used to identify the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
Our newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels (web bugs), which allow us to recognize if and when an email was opened and which links in the email were followed by the personalized recipient. We store this data so that we can optimally tailor our newsletters to the wishes and interests of our subscribers. Accordingly, the data thus collected is used to send personalized newsletters to the respective recipient.
The data processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. With the revocation of the consent to receive the newsletter, the consent to tracking is also revoked.

- Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses the online advertising program „Google AdWords“ and as part of it the „Google Ads Conversion“. Google AdWords sets a cookie on your computer if you have landed on our website via a Google ad. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this website. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values. A different cookie is assigned to each Google AdWords customer. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked via the website of AdWords customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tool used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Google Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that Google will find out and store your IP address.
Users who do not wish to participate in the tracking can easily deactivate the Google conversion tracking cookie via their internet browser under the user settings. These users will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
- Google Analytics Remarketing
This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one end device (e.g. cell phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history with your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on every end device on which you log in with your Google account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad targeting.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account; follow this link: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922
The aggregation of the collected data in your Google account is based solely on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO), which you give to Google. You can revoke this consent at any time without giving reasons with effect for the future. In the case of data collection processes that are not merged in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merging), the collection of data by us is also based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) that you have given us. You can revoke this consent at any time without giving reasons with effect for the future.
