3. Personal data (collection, processing and use)

3.1 Visiting our website

When you call up our website, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser used on your end device. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • date and time of access
  • name and URL of the accessed files
  • website from which the access takes place (referrer URL)
  • browser used and, if applicable the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider

The above-mentioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Guarantee a smooth connection establishment and a comfortable use of our website
  • Evaluation of the system security and stability
  • further administrative purposes

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. The purposes listed above conclude our legitimate interest. We will not use the data to draw conclusions about your person.

3.2 Newsletter dispatch with Mailchimp

You have the possibility to register for our newsletter

The registration for our newsletter is done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with foreign e-mail addresses. The registrations for 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 time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP address. Also the changes of your data stored with MailChimp are logged.

The sending of the newsletter is done by MailChimp, a newsletter sending platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore MailChimp may use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimization of sending and presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them or pass them on to third parties.

The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of MailChimp when the newsletter is opened. In the context 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 collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our ambition nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
