Google Tag Manager
Google Tag Manager is a Google Inc. (“Google”) service which is used to add, update and manage tags.
Tags are small code elements on our website which help measure traffic and visitor behaviour and monitor the impact of online advertising and social media.
When you visit our website, the current tag configuration is sent to the user’s browser. This contains instructions on which tags should be enabled. The tool itself does not record personal data. The tool does however ensure that other tags which may record data are enabled.

Notes regarding the newsletter and consent
The following information covers the content of our newsletter and the method of registration, send method and statistical analysis, as well as your right to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receipt thereof and to the described methods.
We send newsletters and advertising information by email (hereinafter “Newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or with legal permission. The content created when subscribing to the newsletter shall establish the user’s consent.
Double opt-in and tracking:
You subscribe to our newsletter using a double opt-in model, i.e. after subscribing you will receive an email in which you are asked to confirm your subscription. This confirmation is required so that no one can subscribe using third-party email addresses. Subscriptions to the newsletter are tracked in order to verify that the subscription process meets the legal requirements. This includes logging the subscription and confirmation times, as well as the IP address. Changes to your data retained in MailChimp are also tracked.
Using the “MailChimp” email marketing service provider:
Newsletters are sent via MailChimp, a newsletter automation platform provided by the US company Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The email addresses of our newsletter recipients are stored on the MailChimp servers in the USA, along with other details described within these notes. MailChimp uses this information to send and analyse newsletters on our behalf. According to its own marketing information, MailChimp can also use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimisation of the sending and layout of newsletters, or for commercial purposes, to determine which countries recipients come from. MailChimp does not use the data on our newsletter recipients to address these recipients themselves or to disclose it to third parties.
In order to subscribe to the newsletter, simply enter your email address. In addition, we use other data such as name and first name, country and customer group. This information is used solely for personalisation and segmentation of the newsletter.
Statistical collection and analyses:
The newsletters contain a “web beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved when the newsletter is opened from the MailChimp server. By retrieving this file, we collect technical information such as information regarding the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time at which the file was retrieved. This information is used for technical enhancement of services based on the technical data or audience, and the audience’s reading habits based on the retrieval sites (which can be determined by the IP address) or access times.
Statistical surveys also include determination of whether the newsletter is opened, when it is opened, and which links are clicked. It is technically possible to attribute this information to individual newsletter recipients; however it is not our objective, nor that of MailChimp, to monitor individual users. The analyses actually allow us to learn about the reading habits of our users, and to adapt our content accordingly, or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
Online access and data management:
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. This also deletes your consent to delivery via MailChimp and to statistical analyses. Unfortunately, consent to delivery via MailChimp or statistical analysis cannot be revoked separately.
A link to unsubscribe from the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.
Legal basis for the General Data Protection Regulation:
In accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of 25 May 2018, we hereby inform you that consent to sending newsletters to the registered email addresses is based on point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR and Section 7 GDPR, as well as Section 7, Subsection (2), Number 3 and Subsection (3) Act Against Unfair Competition (Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb, “UWG”).
Use of the MailChimp email marketing service provider, performing statistical surveys and analyses, and tracking of the login process is all done on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to point (f) Article 6(1) GDPR
Please also note that you can object to any future processing of your personal data in compliance with the legal provisions pursuant to Article 21 GDPR. An objection can be lodged in particular against processing for direct marketing purposes.
Our social media presence
Data processing by social networks
Our social media webpages are intended to give us as extensive an internet presence as possible. This constitutes a legitimate interest as described in Article 6(1) point f GDPR. Analytical processes initiated by the social networks may be founded on different legal bases which the social network operators must disclose (e.g. consent as described in Article 6(1) point a GDPR).
Controller and exercising of rights
When you visit one of our social media webpages (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered by this visit. However, our responsibility and related ability to provide information are limited exclusively to the content we have created. In principle, you can exercise your rights (information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability and complaints) both against us (with regard to content) and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook). Please note that, despite our shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have complete control over the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our capabilities are limited by the company policy of the respective provider.
We cannot influence the period for which personal data pertaining to you is stored by the social network operators for their own purposes. Information can be obtained directly from the social network operators (e.g. in their data protection information, see below).
