We take data protection seriously
Protecting your privacy when processing personal data is an important cause. When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP of your internet service prover, the website you are visiting from, the web pages you visit on our site, as well as the date and duration of your visit, as standard. This data is necessary for the technical provision of the website and to ensure secure operation of the server. A personalised evaluation of this data will not be carried out.
If you transmit data via the contact form, this data will be stored on our servers as part of data protection measures. Your data will only be used to process your query. Your data will be handled in strictest confidence. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.

Personal data is data relating to your person. This includes your name, address and email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. In some cases, we require your name, address, and other information in order to be able to offer you the desired services.
The same applies if we provide informational materials at your request or respond to your query. In such cases, we will always notify you. We only store data that you have transmitted to us automatically or voluntarily.
If you use one of our services, as a rule, we only collect the data necessary for us to be able to offer you our services. We may ask for further information, but this will be on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal data, we do this solely to provide you with our services or in pursuit of our commercial objectives.
Automatically stored data
Server log files
The site provider automatically retrieves and stores information in server log files that are transferred to us automatically via your browser. This information includes:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the file requested
- Website from which the file was requested
- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- Web browser and operating system used
- Full IP address of the requesting computer
- Volume of data transferred
This data is not merged with data from other sources. The data is processed in line with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
For technical security reasons, especially for preventing attempted attacks on our web server, this data will be stored by us for a short time. This data cannot be used to identify an individual person. After no more than seven days, the data will be anonymised on a domain level by truncating the IP address, so that it is no longer possible to trace it back to an individual user. The data will also be used in an anonymised form for statistical purposes; this data is neither compared with other datasets nor passed on to third parties, even in a truncated form. The number of site visits is only disclosed as part of our server statistics, which are published every two years in our activity report.

Google-Analytics with anonymisation function
The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, location and frequency of your website visits, including your IP address, are transferred to Google servers in the USA and stored there.
On our website, we use Google Analytics with the “_gat.anonymizeIp” extension. In this case, your IP address will be truncated and therefore anonymised within a European Union Member State or another treaty state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to generate reports on website activity for us and to perform other services related to the website activity and internet usage.
Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or if the third parties will process this data on behalf of Google.
WIf you visit our website from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) and clear your cookies, this will also clear the opt-out cookie, meaning that you will have to click the link again.
If you have provided consent for Google to link your web and app browsing history with your Google account in order to display personalised ads, Google will use your data in conjunction with Google Analytics data to generate target demographic lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google Analytics will initially record your Google-authenticated ID on our website, which is linked to your Google account (and therefore personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID with your Google Analytics data in order to optimise our target demographics.
If you do not consent to this, you can disable this function by changing the appropriate settings in the “My Account” section of your Google account.
By using our website, you provide consent for the personal data about yourself to be processed by Google as part of the data processing measures outlined above and for the specified purpose. You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. However, please note that in such cases, you may be unable to make full use of our website. Moreover, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data about your website activity generated by the cookies by clicking the following link and downloading and installing the DoubleClick deactivation add-on available there as a browser plugin. Alternatively, you can also deactivate the DoubleClick cookies with this opt-out feature.
For the integration of videos, we use the provider Vimeo, amongst others. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC, headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York, 10011.
Our website features plugins from the provider Vimeo. If you visit one of our websites that features this plugin, for example our media library, a connection is established to the Vimeo servers to display the plugin. As a result, the Vimeo server is informed of which of our web pages you have visited. If you are also logged into Vimeo as a member, Vimeo will associate this information with your personal user account. Any usage of the plugin, e.g. by clicking the start button on a video, will also result in this information being associated with your user account. You can prevent the data from being associated by logging out of your Vimeo account and deleting the relevant Vimeo cookies before visiting our website.

Free whitepapers, e.g. Trend Report
In order to receive our free whitepapers, such as the Trend Report, you must provide us with your email address to register for the download. Disclosing your title, name, company and telephone number is not mandatory.

You can revoke this consent at any time (email@example.com).
We use the lead generation service of Leadinfo B.V., Rotterdam, Netherlands. This recognises visits by companies to our website on the basis of IP addresses and shows us publicly available information for this purpose, such as company names or addresses. In addition, Leadinfo sets two first-party cookies to evaluate user behaviour on our website and processes domains from form entries (e.g. “leadinfo.com”) in order to correlate IP addresses with companies and improve the services. For more information, please visit www.leadinfo.com. On this page: www.leadinfo.com/en/opt-out you have an opt-out option. In the event of an opt-out, your data will no longer be collected by Leadinfo.
This website uses Borlabs Cookie, which sets a technically necessary cookie (borlabs-cookie) to store your cookie consents. Borlabs cookie does not process any personal data. The borlabs-cookie cookie stores your consents that you gave when you entered the website. If you wish to revoke these consents, simply delete the cookie in your browser. When you re-enter/reload the website, you will be asked again for your cookie consent.
We use a double opt-in process for newsletter distribution, which means that we will only send you a newsletter via email if you have previously provided your explicit consent for the newsletter service to be activated. We will send you a notification email asking you to click a link in the email to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we will store your IP address and the date of registration. This information is stored solely as evidence in case a third party abuses your email address in order to subscribe to the newsletter without your knowledge or consent. If, in future, you no longer wish to receive our newsletter, you can unsubscribe at any time without incurring any additional transmission costs beyond the basic tariffs.
Evaluation of newsletter usage behavior
We use so-called newsletter tracking in our newsletters. In this process, recipient reactions (opening a mailing, clicking on text and image links, downloading images with an e-mail program) are recorded and stored anonymously for statistical purposes. It is not possible to draw conclusions about individual users from the stored data.
By registering via double opt-in procedure, the user has agreed to the logging. As a result, the aforementioned recipient responses are recorded and stored. This allows us to better tailor the content of the newsletter to the personal interests of the user. Logging takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) DSGVO. Our interest is directed towards the use of a user-friendly newsletter offer and the proof of consent.
Cancellation/revocation of the newsletter
The user can cancel the newsletter at any time and thus revoke his consent to receive the newsletter. Any existing consent to the collection of data will also expire with this. The user has the option of cancelling the newsletter himself at any time via the unsubscribe link contained in each newsletter.
We store the unsubscribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before deleting them in order to be able to prove any consent formerly given. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual deletion request is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of consent is confirmed at the same time.
We have implemented technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and service providers working for us are bound by the applicable data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security measures are subject to a continuous improvement process and our data protection statements are constantly being revised. Please ensure that you have the latest version.
