§ 4 Newsletters
We evaluate how the newsletters we send out are used. For evaluation purposes, sent e-mails contain so-called ‘web beacons’, or ‘tracking pixels’, which are one-pixel image files that are stored on our website. For evaluation purposes, we link the data and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Links contained in the newsletter also have an ID. We use the data obtained to create a user profile to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. In so doing, we record when you read our newsletter, and what links you click on in the newsletter, and use this to determine what your interests are. We link this data with your actions on our website.
§ 5 Further functions and services of our website
(1) In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if interested. Typically you would need to give additional personal information that we use to provide the service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.
(2) We partly use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions, and are regularly inspected.
(3) Moreover, we may disclose your personal data to third parties, if participation in promotional events, competitions, contracts or similar services is offered by us together with partners. You will receive further information when you provide your personal data or below in the description of the offer.
(4) Insofar as our service providers or partners have their headquarters in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you about the consequences of this circumstance in the description of the offer.
(5) We use the IP address collected during your use of our website (see § 3 (1) of this Data Privacy Statement) to notify our advertising customers in the context of performance analysis (”Top Latest Visitors”) of companies which have searched for the categories in which those advertising customers are listed or have clicked directly on their company profile. If we are not able to allocate the IP address in question unequivocally to a company and it is therefore conceivable that the IP address can be assigned to a natural person, in which case the data would be personal, the IP address will be deleted immediately in order to guarantee that personal data are not being communicated to advertising customers. The IP address is checked on the basis of automatic searches, complemented by manual checks and follow-up work.
§ 6 Objection to or withdrawal of consent for processing of your data
(1) If you have given your consent to processing of your data, you can revoke it at any time. Such revocation will affect the admissibility of the processing of your personal data after you have declared it to us. The legality of the data processing carried out based on consent until its revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on weighing of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case in particular if processing is not required to fulfill a contract with you, which we will describe individually for each of the functions in the following. In you do object, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data according to our existing procedure. If your objection proves justified, we will examine the situation and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or inform you of our compelling legitimate reasons that justify our continuing with the processing.
