Web analytics
This website uses:

1. Website statistics
Automatically provided by our web host. The access statistics do not contain any personal data, since the IP-addresses of our website’s users are anonymised.

2. Web host IP-address
Our web host is processing the following personal data in a server log file for the purpose of monitoring the technical function and raising the operational safety of the web server, on the basis of the legitimate interest of the controller (technical security measures):
Accessed website, date and time of server inquiry, type of browser/browser version, used operating system, transferred data volume, notice of successful access, referrer URL, IP-address, host name. We ourselves do not have access to the log files.

Integration of the services and contents of third parties
Within our online offer, we integrate content or services provided by third parties, like videos or text fonts (hereinafter referred to as “contents”), on the basis of our legitimate interest (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and efficient operation of our online offer based on Art. 6 para 1 lit f GDPR). This always requires the third parties providing these contents to have access to the users’ IP-addresses, because without IP-address they cannot send contents to the users’ browsers. Thus, the IP-address is necessary for the display of these contents. We make an effort to exclusively use contents of providers who use these IP-addresses only for the provision of their contents.
The following list gives you an overview of third party providers and their contents as well as links to their privacy policies containing more information on the processing of data and possibilities of withdrawal or refusal (so-called opt-out), as partly mentioned before:

You can subscribe to our newsletter via our website. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the procedures described.

In order to subscribe to the newsletter, we need your e-mail address.

Our newsletter is distributed by e-mail and on our homepage. The usual content is reporting on current projects relating to our services.
The subscription is free of charge. Registration/deregistration: directly in each newsletter.

The newsletters are sent by the mailing service “MailChimp”, a newsletter mailing platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. You can view the privacy policy of the shipping service provider here: The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with the European data protection level (

The shipping service provider is used on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and an order processing contract pursuant to Art. 28 para. 3 sentence 1 DSGVO. The dispatch service provider can use the recipient’s data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without allocation to a user, to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimisation of dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass the data on to third parties.

Likewise the changes of your data stored with the Versanddienstleister are logged.

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 dispatch 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.

The statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure are carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our interest is directed towards the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of users.

Cancellation/revocation – You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. This means that your consent to its dispatch [by the dispatch service provider] and the statistical analyses will expire at the same time. A separate revocation of the dispatch by the dispatch service provider or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
