Google complies with the data privacy provisions of the Privacy Shield Framework and is registered with the Privacy Shield programme of the US Department of Commerce and uses information that is collected to evaluate how our website is used, prepare reports on this use for us and provide us with other related services.

We use our newsletter to inform you about products and services we offer. If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address and information that allows us to confirm that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided or that the owner of the e-mail address agrees to receive the newsletter. This data is used only so that we can send the newsletter and is not shared with third parties. When you subscribe to the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date you subscribed. This information is saved only as evidence in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and subscribes to the newsletter without the knowledge of the owner of the e-mail address. You can withdraw your consent to have your data and e-mail address saved and used to send you the newsletter at any time. To withdraw your consent, you can use the link provided in the newsletter itself or send your withdrawal of consent to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then delete the data used to send the newsletter without undue delay.
Information about the newsletter and consent
The following provides information about the content of our newsletter, subscribing, how we send our newsletter, statistical analysis, and your rights to object. When you subscribe to our newsletter, you are giving your consent to receive the newsletter and to the processes described in the following.
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (referred to in the following as “Newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or with legal permission. So long as the content of the newsletter is described when a person subscribes, this content is binding with regard to the users’ consent. Furthermore, our newsletters contain information about our products and company (in particular, this includes information about our services, presentations, seminars and webinars).
Double opt-in and logging subscriptions
We use a double opt-in process for subscriptions to our newsletter. Once you subscribe to the newsletter, we will send you a confirmation e-mail with a link for you to confirm your subscription. We need this confirmation to ensure that no one can subscribe using e-mail addresses that do not belong to them.
We log subscriptions to the newsletter so that we can document the subscription process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes saving the time you subscribed, the time you confirmed your subscription and your IP address.
Data collected for statistical purposes and analysis
Newsletters contain a web beacon, which is a file the size of one pixel that the server retrieves when you open the newsletter. When you open the newsletter, information about your browser and your system, your IP address and the time you open the newsletter are collected. This information is used to make technical improvements to services, for example using technical data or target groups and reading behaviour and using the location where users opened the newsletter (which can be determined by the IP address) or the time users accessed the newsletter.
Data that is collected for statistical purposes also includes whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and what links are clicked. Although this information can be assigned to newsletter recipients for technical reasons, our intent is not to monitor individual users. Instead, we evaluate this information to ascertain the reading habits of our users and to adjust our content to them, or to send different content based on users’ interest.
