    • The web page from which the visitor accesses the web page (the so-called referrer URL)
    • Browser type, version, language and operating system of the visitor's terminal device 
    • Operating system and its interface settings

    3.2.1 Newsletter
    You can register to receive our newsletter via the contact form. We send newsletters with advertising information only with the consent of the recipient according to Art.6 para1 (a) GDPR. The registration to our newsletter takes place over a Double-Opt-In-Procedure: After registration you will receive an e-mail in which you should confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary to verify you as the owner of the e-mail-address. The registration for the newsletter is logged in order to be able to prove the registration according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the times of registration and confirmation as well as your IP address. Likewise, further data that you have provided when registering for the newsletter will be saved. We only use your information other than your e-mail address to personalize the newsletter, including your name, for example. You can cancel your subscription to the newsletter at any time. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter in every newsletter e-mail.

    We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons, also known as tracking pixels. These are one-pixel image files that link to our website and thus enable us to evaluate your user behavior. This is done by collecting the data mentioned in 3.1 as well as web beacons that are assigned to your e-mail address and linked to your own ID. 

    The data is collected exclusively under a pseudonym, i. e. the IDs are not linked to your other personal data, thus excluding any possibility of direct personal reference. Such tracking is not possible even if you have deactivated the display of images by default in your e-mail program. In this case, however, the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all functions. If you display the images manually, the above tracking is performed.
