Our e-mail newsletters are sent via the "HubSpot" service, a service provided by HubSpot Ireland Ltd., 2nd Floor 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland (hereinafter "HubSpot"), to which we provided your information when registering for the newsletter share data. This transfer takes place in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR and serves our legitimate interest in using an effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The data you enter for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter (e.g. e-mail address) will be stored on HubSpot's servers in the EU.
HubSpot uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. For the evaluation, the newsletters sent by e-mail contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which represent one-pixel image files that are stored on our website. In this way it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a previously defined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on such links. Technical information is also recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected exclusively in pseudonymised form and is not linked to your other personal data; direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyzes can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
We have concluded an order processing contract with HubSpot, with which we oblige HubSpot to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.

Google Analytics 4
This website uses Google Analytics 4, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"), with which the use of websites can be analysed.
When using Google Analytics 4, so-called "cookies" are used by default. Cookies are text files that are stored on your end device and enable an analysis of your use of a website. The information collected by cookies about your use of the website (including the IP address transmitted by your device and shortened by the last few digits, see below) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored and processed there. This may also result in information being transmitted to the servers of Google LLC based in the USA, where the information may be processed further.
When using Google Analytics 4, the IP address transmitted by your end device when you use the website is automatically and automatically collected and processed in an anonymous manner, so that a direct personal reference to the information collected is excluded. This automatic anonymization takes place by shortening the last digits of the IP address transmitted by your end device by Google within member states of the European Union (EU) or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA).
On our behalf, Google uses this and other information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on your website activities or your usage behavior and to provide us with other services related to your website and internet usage. The shortened IP address transmitted by your end device as part of Google Analytics 4 will not be merged with other Google data. The data collected as part of the use of Google Analytics 4 is kept for 2 months and then deleted.
Google Analytics 4 enables a special function, the so-called "demographic characteristics", to also generate statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of website users based on an evaluation of interest-based advertising and using third-party information. This makes it possible to determine and differentiate between groups of users of the website for the purpose of target group-optimized alignment of marketing measures. However, data collected via the "demographic characteristics" cannot be assigned to a specific person and therefore not to you personally. This data collected via the "demographic characteristics" function is kept for two months and then deleted.
All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for storing and reading information on the end device you use to use the website, only takes place if you have given us permission to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO have given your express consent. Without your consent, Google Analytics 4 will not be used while you are using the website. You can revoke the consent you have given at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service using the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.
We have concluded a so-called order processing contract with Google for our use of Google Analytics 4, which obliges Google to protect the data of our website users and not to pass it on to third parties.
To ensure compliance with the European level of data protection, even when data is transferred from the EU or the EEA to the USA and possible further processing there, Google relies on the so-called standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, which we have contractually agreed with Google.
Additional legal notices relating to Google Analytics 4, including a copy of the referenced Standard Contractual Clauses, can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=the and under https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites
