Statistical evaluation and analyses
In order to send you better and even more interesting newsletters containing offers and topics which are tuned to your specific requirements, the newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file retrieved from the MailChimp server once the newsletter is opened. The information collected includes identifying whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked (so-called opening and click rates). This procedure allows us to measure the success of our newsletter and to ascertain whether the contents are still interesting for you. This information can be matched to individual newsletter recipients for technical reasons. By evaluating this information, we are able to identify the reading habits of our subscribers and to adapt the contents to our readers’ interests. This allows us to send you offers and campaigns which meet your specific requirements.
If you disagree with this level of customization, you can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time via the link included at at the end of every email.

7. Web analytics, social media, plugins

a. Google
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. small text files which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyze your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will firstly be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on web activity and to provide further services for the website operator related to use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You can prevent cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at [].
As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, you can click this link in order to opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics within this website in the future (the opt-out applies only for the browser in which you set it and within this domain). An opt-out cookie will be stored on your device, which means that you’ll have to click this link again if you delete your cookies.
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you clicked on an ad delivered by Google on our website, a cookie is placed on your computer by Google Ads. The cookie for conversion tracking is placed when a user clicks on an ad delivered by Google. These cookies expire within 30 days and are not personally identifiable. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will be able to recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page. Every Google Ads customer gets a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked across sites by Ads customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted in for conversion tracking. Customers are given the total number of users who clicked on their ad and proceeded to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that can personally identify users.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can take the necessary steps to block cookies – e.g. by adjusting your browser in such a way that the storage of cookies is generally disabled or that cookies from the domain "" are blocked.
Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies if you do not wish for measurement data to be recorded. If you delete all your cookies, you must reset the opt-out cookie.
By using our websites, you consent to the processing of the data collected about you by Google, as well as to the procedure and purpose of the data processing described above. You can prevent cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functions of our websites. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at
b. Facebook
i. Conversion Tracking
Our website uses the "tracking pixel" of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). It allows us to track the behavior of users after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. The purpose of this technology is to analyze the efficacy of Facebook ads for statistical and marketing research purposes. It can also contribute to optimizing advertising campaigns.
ii. Custom Audience
Our website uses the service “Custom Audiences from your website” provided by Facebook. When visiting our website, the Facebook pixel establishes a link between your browser and the Facebook server and sets a cookie. This information is stored by Facebook and processed in such a way that Facebook can link it with your Facebook account and use it for advertising purposes in accordance with its data use policy (unless you have objected to this in the privacy settings of your Facebook profile).
The collected data is anonymous for us, meaning that it does not allow us to draw conclusions about the identity of individual users. A transfer of personal data within the meaning of the Facebook service "Custom Audiences from your Customer List" or the matching of data by means of "advanced matching" with the Facebook pixel will not be performed. You can object to the collection and analysis of your data by clicking on the following link and disabling the corresponding tracking: Opt-Out-Link.
You can object to the use of cookies on your computer in general by configuring your browser in such a way that no more cookies will be stored on your computer and any existing cookies will be deleted. For more detailed information about the collection and use of your information by Facebook as well as your rights and settings options in this regard, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy at
c. Social plugins for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Xing
The "social plugins" of the providers listed below are installed on our website. They are recognizable by the respective logo.
Information including personal data will possibly be transmitted and used by the service providers with these plugins. We prevent the unknown and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service providers with a 2-click solution. If you wish to activate a particular social plugin, you must first click on the button in question. Information is only collected and transmitted to a service provider once their plugin is activated. We do not collect any personal data through the social plugins or their use.
We have no influence over the data that an activated plugin collects, and how it is used by the respective service providers. At present it must be assumed that a direct connection to the services of such service providers will be developed, and at least the IP address and device-related information is collected and used. There is also the possibility that service providers will attempt to store cookies on the computer in use. For information on the specific data which is collected and how it is used, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective service provider.
We have embedded the social media plugins of the following companies on our website:

d. Google Web Fonts
This website uses a service called Web Fonts provided by Google to ensure the uniform use of fonts on this site. When opening a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection with the Google servers located in the U.S. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
