Personal data is information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (Art. 4 No. 1 DSGVO). This includes in particular names, address data, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses. But also information about preferences, memberships or, for example, previously visited websites can constitute personal data.

The legal basis for the processing is the necessity for the implementation of pre-contractual measures in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. We delete the data accruing in this context after the storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal retention obligations.

We transmit your personal data to third parties, as far as this is necessary for the execution of contracts or the processing of payments. The legal basis for the transfer is the necessity for the fulfillment of a contract in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. A transfer of personal data to third parties for marketing or advertising purposes will not take place without your express consent.

Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyze the behavior of newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can analyze how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter.
