Within our online offer, we use our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer) in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, use customary tracking measures to the extent that these are necessary for the operation of the affiliate system. In the following we explain the technical background to the users.
The services offered by our contractual partners can also be advertised and linked on other websites (so-called affiliate links or after-buy systems, e.g. if links or third-party services are offered after a contract has been concluded). The operators of the respective websites receive a commission if users follow the affiliate links and then take advantage of the offers.
In summary, it is necessary for our online offer that we can track whether users who are interested in affiliate links and / or the offers available from us then take advantage of the offers at the instigation of the affiliate links or our online platform. For this purpose, the affiliate links and our offers are supplemented by certain values that are part of the link or otherwise, e.g. in a cookie. The values include, in particular, the starting website (referrer), time, an online identifier for the operator of the website on which the affiliate link was located, an online identifier for the respective offer, an online identifier for the user, and tracking specific values such as Advertising material ID, partner ID and categorizations.
The online user IDs we use are pseudonymous values. I.e. the online IDs themselves do not contain any personal data such as names or e-mail addresses. They only help us to determine whether the same user who clicked on an affiliate link or was interested in an offer via our online offer took up the offer, i.e. e.g. has concluded a contract with the provider. However, the online ID is personal to the extent that the partner company and we have the online ID together with other user data. This is the only way for the partner company to inform us whether the user has taken advantage of the offer and whether we are e.g. can withdraw the bonus.
If, according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR, we use your email address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis.
Content: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or with legal permission.
Double opt-in and logging: Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registration you will receive an email in which you will be asked to confirm your registration for the newsletter. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with us with third-party email addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the IP address and the time of registration and confirmation. Changes to your data stored by our shipping service provider are also logged.
Registration data: To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your email address. Optionally, we ask you to provide a name for the purpose of addressing you personally in the newsletter.
The dispatch of the newsletter and the associated performance measurement are based on the consent of the recipient in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 GDPR or, if consent is not required, based on our legitimate interests in direct marketing acc. Art. 6 para. 1 according to f. GDPR.
The logging of the registration process is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The newsletter is sent via the mailing service provider “MailChimp”, a newsletter dispatch platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, Georgia 30308, USA. You can view the data protection provisions of the shipping service provider here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC d / b / a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European level of data protection (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&status=Active).
The shipping service provider is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and an order processing contract acc. Art. 28 para. 3 sentence 1 GDPR used.
The shipping service provider can use the recipient’s data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve their own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass the data on to third parties.
The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, i.e. A pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a shipping service provider, from their server. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval, are initially collected.
This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
A separate revocation of the success measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire newsletter subscription must be canceled.
We use content or service offers from third-party providers within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. Services such as Embed videos or fonts (hereinafter referred to as “content”).
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to information from other sources.
We endeavor to take all necessary technical and organizational security measures to store your personal data in such a way that they are neither accessible to third parties nor to the public. If you want to contact us by e-mail, we would like to point out that with this communication channel, the confidentiality of the information transmitted cannot be fully guaranteed. We therefore recommend that you only send us confidential information by post.
