operates this website as a service and information offering.

Your personal data will only be processed by us in accordance with the provisions of the applicable data protection law. You will find the individual data protection terms in a small glossary under “Definitions” at the end of this data protection declaration. The following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data. This data protection declaration only refers to our web pages. If you are redirected to other sites via links on our pages, please inform yourself there about the respective handling of your data.

As far as possible, your personal data is encrypted by digital security systems and protected against damage, destruction or unauthorised access by technical and organisational measures.

Browser data

For technical reasons and in order to maintain and improve functionality, information that your internet browser transmits to us is automatically collected, stored and, where necessary, passed on to third parties. Our legitimate interest for processing is the operational security of the website in accordance with Article 6(1) f) DSGVO.

These data are:

Browser type and version
Operating system used
Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
Website you are visiting
Date and time of your access
Your internet protocol data (IP address)
Amount of data transferred
Access status (files transferred, file not found, etc.)
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and thus does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They can be evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimise our internet presence and our offers. After evaluation, this data is deleted by us and our service providers.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


Anonymised usage profiles

Unless otherwise stated here, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data in order to use our website. Each time a user accesses the above-mentioned web pages and each time a file is retrieved, data about this process is stored in a log file. We use this data to make your visit to our website technically possible. Furthermore, we use this data for statistical purposes in order to improve the design and layout of our website. No personal use is made of this data. Our legitimate interest for processing is the operational security and functionality of the website in accordance with Article 6 (1) f) DSGVO.

In detail, the following data record is stored for each retrieval

Name of the retrieved file
Date and time of the retrieval
Amount of data transferred
Message as to whether the retrieval was successful
Description of the type of web browser used
Requesting domain
Country of origin of the domain
In addition, we use anonymised user profiles to measure the usage of free content; we explain this under:

Analysis of usage behaviour for subscribed free email services

We aim to make the email information we send as valuable as possible to you, the user. In order to be able to offer you tailored content and offers that you find really useful, we regularly evaluate the usage behaviour of our email recipients for this purpose. This means, for example, whether an email was read at all (opening behaviour) and which messages and offers were read and which were not (click behaviour). This data is expressly not passed on to third parties, but is used exclusively to improve the quality of our e-mails to you. If you do not agree with this data collection and evaluation, you can object at any time by sending an email to

Use of personal data

If you contact us by e-mail, fax or telephone, we may request some personal information from you. In each case, we ask for the data that we need to be able to process your contact request in a meaningful way, but at least your surname and first name, e-mail address and telephone number. The legal basis for this is Article 6 paragraph 1a), b) and f) DSGVO. In addition, you can voluntarily provide us with further data as part of the contact request. The data will be stored by us and used for the purpose of answering your contact request. Some services of our portal are offered in cooperation with partner companies. In order to be able to offer these partner services, it may be necessary for us to provide your personal data to these partner companies as well. In this case too, however, the data will be used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your contact enquiry, and this will also be done by our partner. The voluntary provision of this data constitutes consent to the use of the data in the above sense. Your consent to the collection and use of data will be recorded by us. The legal basis for data processing is the consent of the data subject in accordance with Article 6 (1) a) DSGVO.

Inventory data

Your personal data, insofar as it is required for the establishment, content or amendment of the contractual relationship (inventory data), is used exclusively for the purpose of processing the contract. The legal basis for the processing of this data is found in Article 6 paragraph 1 . b) DSGVO.

For example, your name and address must be passed on to the billing service provider in order to bill you for chargeable services. Without your express consent or without a legal basis, your personal data will not be passed on to third parties outside of the processing of the contract.

By order of the competent authorities, we may provide information on inventory data in individual cases, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger by the police authorities of the federal states, to fulfil the statutory tasks of the federal and state authorities for the protection of the constitution, the Federal Intelligence Service or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service or to enforce intellectual property rights.

We carefully examine such requests – should it come to that – within the framework of the means available to us and only pass on your data if the legal obligation appears to be compelling for us. In these cases, the legal basis for data processing is the fulfilment of legal obligations of the responsible party in accordance with Article 6 (1) c) DSGVO, as well as relevant special laws.

User-dependent services

Some of our services require the use of personal data. These include:

Registration with user profile.
The legal basis for data processing is a contract or an initiation of a contract with the data subject Article 6(1)(b) EU-DSGVO. In addition, consent is given after registration. The legal basis of the data processing is then the consent of the data subject in accordance with Article 6 (1) a) DSGVO.

Creating a user profile (registration)

You have the option of registering on our website and thus creating a user profile. On the occasion of your registration on our website, we collect and use the following data in addition to the data automatically transmitted to us by your internet browser, which are marked as mandatory or voluntary information depending on the purpose of processing:

Date and time of registration
Your first name and surname
your address
Details of your company name or your company
Your e-mail address
Your telephone number/fax number
Your user profile gives you the opportunity to use other parts of our website and to log in for the offers you have purchased.


We use so-called “cookies” on our website. These are small text files that are sent from our web server to your computer in order to store certain information (e.g. identification features).
If you use our website anonymously, cookies are used to carry out statistical evaluations of usage, including the recording of new and returning visitors. Furthermore, we use cookies to measure the extent of use of free content. In order to be able to determine this usage volume, our website sends a so-called unit ID to your browser. This is an anonymous code that serves the sole purpose of recording the content that has already been used free of charge. If you use our website using your user profile, cookies are used to identify your browser for the duration of your visit, including when you call up various pages.
The presentation of our website is also possible without the storage of cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in the settings of your browser or set it in such a way that it informs you of the intended storage by an Internet site. In this case, you decide whether to accept the cookie. However, for the full functionality of our website, it is necessary for technical reasons to allow temporary cookies in their entirety. Even if cookies are deactivated, our website sends the described unit ID to your browser in order to measure the extent of use of free content.

The legal basis of the processing is Article 6(1) f) DSGVO.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.


With your consent, this website uses Matomo, an open-source web analysis tool (, to collect and store data for optimisation purposes. This data can be used to create user profiles under a pseudonym. Matomo cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO.

The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is not passed on to third parties. The Matomo cookies are set exclusively by your active consent. You can set the selection of cookies to be stored by making the appropriate settings in your browser software or by using the cookie notice banner. If you have consented to the setting of Matomo cookies, these will remain on your end device until you delete them or revoke your consent. You can revoke your consent to the setting of certain or all cookies at any time and unconditionally here.


Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members’ area) remain unaffected by this.

This website uses Newsletter2Go to send newsletters. The provider is Newsletter2Go GmbH, Nürnberger Straße 8, 10787 Berlin, Germany.

Newsletter2Go is a service with which, among other things, the dispatch of newsletters can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving newsletters is stored on Newsletter2Go’s servers in Germany.

If you do not want Newsletter2Go to analyse your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe directly on the website.

Data analysis by Newsletter2Go

With the help of Newsletter2Go, we are able to analyse our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links were clicked on particularly often.

In addition, we can see whether certain previously defined actions were carried out after opening/clicking (conversion rate).

Newsletter2Go also allows us to subdivide (“cluster”) the newsletter recipients according to various categories. In doing so, the newsletter recipients can be subdivided according to age, gender or place of residence, for example. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.

Detailed information on the functions of Newsletter2Go can be found at the following link:

Legal basis

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

Storage period

The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Newsletter2Go after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.

Plugins and tools


Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
