We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors and service users.
This policy applies where we are acting as a data controller with respect to the personal data of our website visitors and service users; in other words, where we determine the purposes and means of the processing of that personal data.

Cookies:
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

Cookies from third party applications

Our service providers use cookies and those cookies may be stored on your computer when you visit our website.
We use third-party cookies supplied by the following companies:

Google Analytics:

Our website uses Google Analytics which employs cookies that are stored on your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of our website. The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google's location in the US and stored there.

Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from EU member states. Google uses this information to analyse your use of our site, to compile reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services related to our website.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly as noted elsewhere in this Privacy Policy. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Google Analytics also uses electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used.

Google Tag Manager:

Google Tag Manager (GTM”) is a tag management system to manage JavaScript and HTML tags used for tracking and analytics on websites. Tags are small code elements that, among other things, are used to measure traffic and visitor behaviour: to understand the effect of online advertising and social channels; to set up remarketing and orientation towards target groups; and to test and optimize websites. GTM makes it easier for us to integrate and manage our tags.

Facebook Conversion pixels:

We use the "custom audience pixel" from Facebook on our website. With its help, we can keep track of what users do after they see or click on a Facebook advertisement. This enables us to monitor the effectiveness of Facebook ads for purposes of statistics and market research. Data collected in this way is anonymous to us, which means we cannot see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is saved and processed by Facebook. Facebook can connect this data with your Facebook account and use it for its advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook's Data Policy which you can read here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/

Active Campaign:

You can sign up for our newsletter on our website and receive information about our products, services and events. We use the data you provide to send you our newsletter based on the consent you have given us.

In order to protect your identity, registration involves an opt-in procedure. After entering your data on our website, you will receive a confirmation email. Registration will not be complete until you click the link in the confirmation email.

Our newsletter is distributed by Active Campaign.

The email addresses of our newsletter recipients and their other data as described in this Policy are stored on ActiveCampaign’s servers in the United States. ActiveCampaign uses this information to send and analyze the newsletter on our behalf. In addition, according to information from ActiveCampaign, the company can use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g., for technical improvement of shipping processes and newsletter display, or for business purposes to determine the countries of origin of the recipients. However, ActiveCampaign does not use our newsletter recipients’ data to contact them itself and does not share the data with third parties. ActiveCampaign is certified under the US-EU Privacy Shield Framework and therefore agrees to comply with EU data protection regulations. ActiveCampaign's privacy policy is available here:  https://www.activecampaign.com/privacy-policy/

For purposes of the analysis described above, the newsletter contains a “web beacon,” i.e., a pixel-sized file that is retrieved by ActiveCampaign’s server when the newsletter is opened. When this file is retrieved, technical information is collected such as information on your browser and your system as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval. This information is used for technical improvement of the service based on technical data or target groups and their reading habits using their access location (which can be determined with the help of IP addresses) or access time.

The statistics collected include a determination as to whether the newsletter is opened, when it was opened, and which links were clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be matched up with individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention, nor that of ActiveCampaign, to monitor individual users. The analyses instead enable us to identify the reading habits of our users and adapt our content to their tastes, or to send different content depending on the interests of our users.

You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link provided in every newsletter. To exercise your right to object, you can also use the contact information above.
