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.
More information on how Google Tag Manager works can be found here: https://support.google.com/tagmanager/ and in the use policies: https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/tag-manager/use-policy/.

Data privacy statement for Google Inc. “Google AdWords Conversion Tracking”
The following information explains the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the procedures described.
We send newsletters and emails with promotional information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. The contents circumscribed in the context of a registration for the newsletter are decisive for the consent of the users.
Double-Opt-In and Logging:
Registration for our newsletter is carried out in a so-called double opt-in process, i.e. after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other 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 registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored at sendinblue are also logged.
Use of the shipping service provider "Sendinblue.com":
This website uses Sendinblue to send newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany.
Sendinblue is a service that can be used, among other things, to organize and analyze the sending of newsletters. Sendinblue is a German, certified provider, which was selected in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act. You can find more information here: de.sendinblue.com/information-newsletter-receiver. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored on Sendinblue's servers in Germany.
If you do not want Sendinblue to analyze your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in each newsletter message.
To sign up for the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your email address. In addition, we use other data such as name and surname, country and customer group. This information is only used for personalization and segmentation of the newsletter.
Statistical collection and analyses:
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from Sendinblue's server 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 the time of the retrieval 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.
The 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 nor Sendinblue's intention to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize 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.
Online Calling and Data Management:
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consents. At the same time, your consent to the sending of the newsletter via Sendinblue and the statistical analyses will expire. A separate cancellation of the sending via Sendinblue or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible.
You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Sendinblue after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remains unaffected by this.
After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements for sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of § 6 para. 1 lit. g KDG). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
For more details, please refer to the data protection provisions of Sendinblue at: https://de.sendinblue.com/datenschutz-uebersicht.

Legal basis Data Protection Regulation:
In accordance with the requirements of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) applicable as of May 25, 2018, we inform you that the consent to send newsletters to the registered email addresses is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 7 DSGVO and § 7 para. 2 No. 3, or para. 3 UWG. The use of the dispatch service provider Sendinblue, performance of statistical surveys and analyses as well as logging of the registration process, are carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
We would also like to point out that you can object to the future processing of your personal data in accordance with the legal requirements pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO at any time. The objection can be made in particular against the processing for purposes of direct advertising.
