We take organisational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons. If contents, tools or other means from other providers (hereinafter jointly referred to as “third party providers”) are used within the scope of this data protection declaration and their registered office is abroad, it is to be assumed that a data transfer to the registered office states of the third party providers takes place. The transfer of data to third countries is carried out either on the basis of a legal permit, user consent or special contractual clauses which guarantee the security of the data required by law.

The access data includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. We use the protocol data without allocation to the person of the user or other profile creation according to the legal regulations only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, the security and the optimization of our online offer. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete indications.

The following information will inform you about 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 declare your agreement with the receipt and the described procedures. Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described within the scope of registration, they are decisive for the consent of the user. In addition, our newsletters contain the following information: “About our products, offers, promotions and our company”. Double-Opt-In and logging: The registration to our newsletter takes place in a so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. I.e. after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external 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. Likewise the changes of your data stored with the Versanddienstleister are logged. Dispatch service provider: The dispatch of the newsletter takes place via the “ALCORNEO Trading GmbH”, Arndtstr. 21,22085 Hamburg (hereinafter referred to as “dispatch service provider”). You can view the data protection regulations of the shipping service provider here.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of the dispatch service provider. The shipping service provider uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, the shipping service provider may use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or pass them on to third parties. Registration data: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient for you to enter your e-mail address. Optionally we ask you to enter the following data: First name and surname for the purpose of personalising the newsletter. Date of birth, gender and industry in order to adapt the contents of the newsletter to the interests of our readers. Statistical survey and analyses – The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of the mailing service provider 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 time of retrieval are first collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of 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 the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor the shipping service provider’s intention to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users. Cancellation/revocation – You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to its dispatch by the dispatch service provider and the statistical analyses expire. A separate revocation of the shipment by the shipping service provider or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
Users have the right, upon request and free of charge, to obtain information about the personal data we have stored about them. In addition, users have the right to have incorrect data corrected, their consent revoked, their personal data blocked or deleted and they have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority in the event that unlawful data processing is assumed. The data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and there are no legal obligations to retain them. If you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, for information, correction, blocking or deletion of data as well as revocation of any consent given or objection to a specific use of data, please contact our customer service at the e-mail address “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
We reserve the right to change the data protection declaration in order to adapt it to changed legal situations or in the event of changes to the service or data processing. However, this only applies to declarations on data processing. If the user’s consent is required or if elements of the data protection declaration contain provisions governing the contractual relationship with the user, the changes will only be made with the user’s consent. Users are requested to inform themselves regularly about the content of the data protection declaration. Status: 20.02.2018
