3. DATA COLLECTION ON OUR WEBSITE

3.1. COOKIES

Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis, whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to accept cookies under certain conditions automatically or always to reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies that are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored according to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided without technical errors.

3.2. ESSENTIAL COOKIES OVERVIEW

3.3. SERVER LOG FILES

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

4. ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING

Our website does not use any analytics, performance, targeting, and advertising cookies.

5. NEWSLETTER

5.1. NEWSLETTER DATA

If you would like to receive our newsletter and/or premium market reports, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter and/or premium market reports. No additional data is collected or is only collected voluntarily. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g., through the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data are deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g., email addresses for the members’ area) remain unaffected.

5.2. MAILCHIMP

This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newsletters. This service is provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service that organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. If you provide data (e.g., your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter, it will be stored on MailChimp servers in the USA.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.

We use MailChimp to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. This allows us to determine if a newsletter message has been opened and on which links you click. Also, technical information is collected (e.g., time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to a specific recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to tailor future newsletters to your interests better.

If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data are deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g., email addresses for the members’ area) remains unaffected.

5.3. COMPLETION OF A DATA PROCESSING AGREEMENT

We have entered into a data processing agreement with MailChimp, in which we require MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not to disclose said data to third parties.
