The processing of your data in a third country may also be carried out in connection with the involvement of service providers as part of commissioned processing. If there is no EU Commission decision on an adequate level of data protection for the country in question, we will ensure through appropriate contracts that your rights and freedoms are adequately protected and guaranteed.

3. Newsletter subscription
You are given the opportunity to sign up to our newsletters when you visit our websites. We only send newsletters and electronic communications containing advertising material if the recipient has given us their consent or we are legally permitted to do so. Our newsletters contain information about our services, our company and the latest happenings in our industry.
Signing up for our newsletters involves the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. an email is sent to you after you sign up asking you to confirm your subscription. All you need to do to sign up to a newsletter is to enter your email address. (add to this if further information is required). A record is kept of your subscription to our newsletter so that we are able to prove that the sign-up process fulfilled all legal requirements. This includes recording and storing what time you signed up, what time you confirmed your subscription and your IP address. A record is also kept of the changes made to your data that is stored at the service provider responsible for sending out our newsletters. In addition, the following data is recorded and stored throughout the time you are signed up to receive our newsletters:
- Which newsletters were sent by email and which newsletters were unable to be successfully delivered (so-called “email bounces”)
Our newsletters are sent based on the consent given by the recipient in acc. with Art. 6, Para 1(a) and Art. 7 GDPR in conjunction with Art. 7, Para. 2 No. 3 ‘UWG‘ [Act against Unfair Competition] as well as statutory authorisation in acc. with Art. 7 Para. 3 UWG. The sign-up process is recorded and stored based on our legitimate interest as set out in Art. 6, Para. 1(f) GDPR. Our interest here is to have a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests and meets the expectations of the users and also enables us to provide proof that consent has been given.
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter and withdraw your consent whenever you wish. An unsubscribe link can be found at the bottom of all our newsletters. Based on our legitimate interests, we can store the email addresses of unsubscribed recipients for up to three years before deleting them in order to be able to prove that they had previously given their consent. The only time this data is processed is in defence of any possible legal claims.
On our websites we use a version of Matomo which is implemented on our own servers. This is an open source analysis software for the purpose of statistical evaluation of visitor access. Based on this evaluation, we particularly wish to track which of our sites are accessed and how often, but not by whom they are accessed. The implementation of Matomo on our servers does not use any cookies. We only store anonymised user data for collecting general statistical values, without comprehensively analysing user behaviour. A comprehensive analysis of user behaviour is also not possible due to the anonymised collection of the data. The IP address transmitted in the server log-in is anonymised on our server before it is transmitted to the Matomo installation and replaced by a random IP address. It is not possible to trace the IP address using the anonymised data, as time entries are randomised by the Matomo installation.
The purpose of the processing is the statistical analysis of user behaviour to optimise the functionality of our websites. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of our website.
The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.
