These are companies in the categories IT Services, Logistics, Printing Services, Telecommunications, Consulting and Consulting as well as Sales and Marketing.

8. TO WHAT EXTENT IS THERE AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING IN INDIVIDUAL CASES, INCLUDING PROFILING?

We do not process your data automatically with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling).
9. AM I OBLIGED TO PROVIDE DATA?
As part of our website, you must provide the personal data that is technically or for IT security reasons necessary for the use of our website. If you do not provide the aforementioned data, you cannot use our website.
When contacting us by form or e-mail, you only have to provide the personal data necessary to process your request. Otherwise, we will not be able to process your request.
With the following information, we inform you about our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and evaluation procedure and inform you about your rights of objection. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you agree to receive the newsletter and the described procedures.
We send our newsletter with advertising information (hereinafter referred to as „newsletter“) only on the basis of the consent of the recipient or on the basis of legal permission.
Double-Opt-In: The registration to our newsletter takes place in the so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. I.e. after registering for the newsletter, we will send you an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation serves to ensure that only persons who actually have access to the e-mail address provided register for our newsletter. We log the registrations for the newsletter in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes storing the login and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Likewise, the changes of your data stored with the dispatch service provider are logged.
We use the services of ZOHO CORPORATION B.V. based in Churchilllaan 11 (17e Verdieping) 3527 GV UTRECHT, Netherlands (hereinafter: „ZOHO“) to send out newsletters. The data is stored on servers in the EU. ZOHO Group companies in India have limited access to data to identify and correct application errors. The transfer of data to Indian companies is based on an intra-group agreement based on the EU standard contractual clauses. ZOHO uses the data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without traceable assignment to a user, to optimize its own services. However, ZOHO does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them or pass them on to third parties.
To subscribe to the newsletter only, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Optionally we ask you to enter a name in the newsletter in order to address you personally.
The newsletters contain a so-called web beacon, i.e. a file the size of a pixel, which is called up by the server of the dispatch service provider when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are first collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of technical data or target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval points (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor ZOHO’s aim to observe individual users. Rather, the evaluations serve to recognise the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content accordingly.
The dispatch of the newsletter and the performance measurement are carried out on the basis of the recipient’s consent under data protection law pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1a, Art. 7 DSGVO and on the basis of the consent under competition law pursuant to § 7 para. 2 no. 3 UWG or on the basis of the legal permission pursuant to § 7 para. 3 UWG.
The registration is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1f DS-GVO and serves as proof of consent to receive the newsletter.
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. If users have only subscribed to the newsletter and cancelled their subscription, their personal data will be deleted.
Cookies are pieces of information that are transferred from our web server or third-party web servers to the user’s web browser and stored there for later retrieval. Cookies are small files or other types of information storage. Cookies serve the security or are necessary for the operation of our website (e.g. for the optimal display of the website on different terminals) or to save your decision when confirming our cookie banner.
We use „session cookies“, which are only stored for the duration of the current visit to our website and partly enable the use of our website in the first place. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the storage period. Session cookies are deleted at the latest when you have finished using our website and close your browser.
If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you can deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of your browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. Please be aware that disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
12. Google Analytics
Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees compliance with European privacy laws (https://www.privacyshield.gov).
Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating the use of our website by our users, compiling reports on activity on the website and providing other services to us relating to the use of this website. Pseudonymous usage profiles can be created from the processed data.
We use Google Analytics with IP anonymization enabled. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
We use Google Analytics Remarketing to display ads placed by us on Google or its partners only to users who have shown an interest in our website or who have specific products or services (e.g. B. Interests in specific topics on our website) that we transmit to Google (so-called „remarketing“). With the help of remarketing, we want to ensure that our advertisements correspond to the interests of the users and do not appear annoying.
Further information on data processing by Google, setting and objection options can be found on the Google website at https://www.google.de
13. ADWORDS REMARKETING-SERVICES VON GOOGLE
On the basis of our legitimate interests, i.e. our interest in the analysis and optimisation of our website within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1f DSGVO, we use the remarketing services („Google Remarketing Services“) of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“).
Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees compliance with European privacy laws (https://www.privacyshield.gov).
Remarketing is when a user is shown ads for products or other services that he or she is interested in on other websites. Users are then ideally only presented with ads that match their potential interests. The Google Remarketing Services allow us to technically implement this and to more specifically display advertisements for our website and/or products and services on other websites.
For this purpose, Google program code is executed when calling up our or other websites on which Google Remarketing services are active and so-called „web beacons“ (invisible graphics) are integrated into the website. In addition, individual cookies are set on the user’s device. These cookies record which web pages the user has opened, what content he is interested in and what ads he has clicked on. In addition, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visit times and other information on the use of the website are stored. The IP address of the user is also recorded. Within the framework of Google Analytics, however, the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only in exceptional cases is it transmitted completely to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google may also combine the above data with data from other sources. If the user subsequently visits other websites, advertisements tailored to his or her interests will be displayed.
User data is processed pseudonymously within the framework of Google Remarketing Services. This means that Google does not process personal data such as user names or e-mail addresses, but only cookie-related data within pseudonymous user profiles. In this respect, from Google’s point of view, the data is not administered and displayed for a specifically identified person, but only for the device on which the respective cookies are stored. If a user has expressly permitted Google to process the data without using a pseudonym, the above shall not apply. The collected data will then be transmitted to Google and stored on Google servers in the USA.
We use the online advertising program „Google AdWords“ for remarketing. For every AdWords customer of Google, including us, a dedicated „conversion cookie“ is set for the user. The information collected with the help of this cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for us as AdWords customers. This tells us the total number of users who clicked on our ads and were redirected to our page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.
If you wish to object to the interest-related advertising by Google, you can use the opt-out options provided by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.
14. FURTHER SERVICES
We use the services of third parties on our website within the framework of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1f DSGVO, i.e. our interest in an optimal website. The IP address of the user is transmitted to these third parties. The IP address is technically necessary so that the contents can be displayed. Third-party providers may use so-called web pixels (invisible graphics, also known as „web beacons“) for evaluation or marketing purposes. The web pixels can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic to the website using them. Third parties may store information in cookies on the user’s device.
We use the following third parties on our website:
