Categories of data subjects

  • Answering contact inquiries and communicating with users.
  • Safety measures.
  • Reach measurement / marketing

Right of providing information

You have the right to request confirmation as to whether the data in question is being processed and to request information about this data as well as further information and a copy of the data in accordance with the legal requirements.

User rights: information, correction and deletion

As a user, you can request free information about which personal data has been stored about you. If your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data blocked or deleted.

Online marketing

We process personal data for the purposes of online marketing, which can include, in particular, the marketing of advertising space or the presentation of advertising and other content (collectively referred to as “content”) based on the potential interests of users and the measurement of their effectiveness. For these purposes, so-called user profiles are created and stored in a file (so-called “cookie”) or similar processes are used, by means of which the user information relevant to the presentation of the aforementioned content is saved. For this information, e.g. content viewed, websites visited, online networks used, but also communication partners and technical information such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times. If users have consented to their location data being collected, this can also be processed. The IP addresses of the users are also saved. However, we use available IP masking procedures (i.e. pseudonymization by shortening the IP address) to protect users. In general, no clear user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) are stored in the online marketing process, but pseudonyms. This means that we, as well as the providers of online marketing processes, do not know the actual identity of the users, but only the information stored in their profiles. The information in the profiles is usually stored in the cookies or by means of similar processes. These cookies can later generally also be read out on other websites that use the same online marketing process, analyzed for the purpose of displaying content and supplemented with further data and stored on the server of the online marketing process provider. As an exception, clear data can be assigned to the profiles. This is the case when the users e.g. Are members of a social network whose online marketing process we use and the network connects the profiles of the users in the aforementioned information. We ask you to note that users may make additional agreements with the providers, e.g. through consent during registration. In principle, we only have access to summarized information about the success of our advertisements. However, we can use so-called conversion measurements to check which of our online marketing processes have led to a so-called conversion, i.e. e.g. to conclude a contract with us. The conversion measurement is used solely to analyze the success of our marketing measures. Unless otherwise stated, we ask you to assume that cookies used will be stored for a period of two years.

Otherwise, user data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in efficient, economical and recipient-friendly services). In this context, we would like to draw your attention to the information on the use of cookies in this data protection declaration.

Temporary cookies (also: session or session cookies):

Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left an online offer and closed his browser.

Permanent cookies:
