2.1 Server log files & Hosting

Our website is hosted by Host Europe GmbH, Hansestraße 111, 51149 Köln (hereinafter: Host Europe). Host Europe automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information is used for the analysis of attacks on our website, for technical error analysis and for providing information to government authorities where this is required by law. When you visit our website, our web server temporarily saves every access in a log file (server log files). The following data will be collected and stored until an automatic deletion date:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • date and time of access
  • name and URL of the retrieved file
  • amount of data transmitted
  • indication of whether query was successful
  • data identifying browser and operating system used
  • website from which access is made
  • name of your Internet service provider

The processing of this data is performed to allow use of the website (connection establishment) and serves the system security, the technical administration of the net infrastructure and the optimization of online content.

By default, our web server is configured to automatically delete the log files every 30 days. However, we reserve the right to temporarily extend the storage time of the log files (manually) or individual IP addresses (manually or automatically) if this is necessary for legitimate security reasons.

The recipient of the data is our webhosting provider. A contract for order processing according to Art. 28 GDPR has been concluded with Host Europe. A transmission of data to a third country does not take place. The basis for temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.

The next time you visit our website on the same device, the information saved in the cookies will subsequently be transmitted either to our website (“First Party Cookie”) or to another website to which the cookie belongs (“Third Party Cookie”).

Through the information saved and returned, the respective website recognizes that you have already accessed and visited it with the browser you use on that device. We use this information to be able to design and display the website in an optimum way in line with your preferences. In that respect, only the cookie itself is identified on your device. Beyond this extent, your personal data will only be saved upon your express consent or if it is strictly necessary to be able to use the service offered to and accessed by you accordingly.

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

  • Strictly necessary cookies (Type A)

Strictly necessary cookies (Type A) – Legal basis: Art. 6 (1) b GDPR

Strictly necessary cookies guarantee functions without which you cannot use our web pages as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by us and are therefore first party cookies. This means that all information stored in the cookies will be returned to our website.

Strictly necessary cookies serve, for example, to ensure that you as a registered user always remain logged in when accessing various subpages of our website and thus do not have to re-enter your login data every time you access a new page.

Functionality cookies enable our website to store information already provided (such as registered name or language selection) and to offer you improved and more personalized functions based on this information. These cookies collect and store only anonymous information so that they cannot track your movements on other websites.

Performance cookies collect information about how our websites are used in order to improve their attractiveness, content and functionality. These cookies help us, for example, to determine whether and which subpages of our website are visited and in which content users are particularly interested. In particular, we record the number of visits to a page, the number of subpages accessed, the time spent on our website, the order of the pages visited, which search terms led you to us, the country, region and, if applicable, the city from which access is made, and the proportion of mobile devices accessing our websites. We also capture movement, clicks and scrolling with the computer mouse to understand which areas of our website are of particular interest to users. As a result, we can tailor the content of our website more specifically to the needs of our users and optimize our offering.

2.5 Newsletter

If you would like to receive our newsletter, 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.

If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by CleverReach, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send.

2.6 Google Analytics

On our website, we use the web tracking service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (hereinafter: Google Analytics). Google Analytics uses cookies for web tracking purposes, which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of the use of our website and your surfing behaviour (so-called tracking).
We perform this analysis based on the tracking service of Google-Analytics in order to continuously optimize and improve the availability of our website. When using our website, data such as your anonymized IP address and your user activities are transmitted to servers of Google Analytics and processed and stored outside the European Union, e.g. in the USA.

This website uses a Google Analytics tracking code with the extension “gat._anonymizeIp()” which only allows an anonymised collection of IP addresses (known as IP masking).

The legal basis for processing personal data is your consent under Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR (as far as you have registered with Google) and Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR (if you have not registered with Google).

Insofar as the processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, the legitimate interest of the site operator is to obtain anonymised information about the website visitors and to use it for the optimization and improvement of the website.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to anonymously evaluate your visit to this website, compile reports on website activity and provide us with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within Google Analytics is not combined with other data. Google will store the data relevant for the provision of web tracking for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the booked web service.

Data is collected and stored anonymously. If there is any personal reference, the data will be deleted immediately, provided it is not subject to any legal retention obligations. In any case, it will be deleted after expiry of the retention obligation. You can prevent the collection and transfer of personal data to Google (especially your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by disabling the execution of script codes in your browser, installing a script blocker in your browser (you can find this e.g. under www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com) or enabling the “Do Not Track” setting on your browser.

2.7 Facebook Custom Audiences (“Facebook Pixel”)

This website also uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, (hereinafter: Facebook) in order to contact you again within 6 months. The legal basis for its usage is Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. This allows users of the website to see interest-based advertisements (“Facebook ads”) when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use this tool.

Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Facebook server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our Internet presence, or that you have clicked on an advertisement from us.

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield, Google and its subsidiary YouTube guarantee that they will follow the EU’s data protection regulations when processing data in the United States.

We use YouTube in its advanced privacy mode to show you videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the advanced privacy mode means that the data specified below will only be transmitted to the YouTube server if you actually start a video.

Without this mode, a connection to the YouTube server in the USA will be established as soon as you access any of our webpages on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is required in order to be able to display the respective video on our website within your browser. YouTube will record and process at a minimum your IP address, the date and time the video was displayed, as well as the website you visited. In addition, a connection to the DoubleClick advertising network of Google is established.

If you are logged in to YouTube when you access our site, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. To prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our site or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube account.

For the purpose of functionality and analysis of usage behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your device via your browser. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser.

2.9 Third-party content and services

The offer on our website may also include content, services and performances from other providers that supplement our offer. Examples of such offers are maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos, or third-party graphics. The calling up of these services by third parties requires regular disclosure of your IP address. Therefore, these providers can see and also save your user IP address.

We make every effort to only include those third-party providers who use IP addresses solely for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence on which third-party provider may save the IP address.

This saving of address can be used for statistical purposes, for example. Should we become aware of any saving procedures through third parties, we will inform our users of this immediately. In this context, please also note the special privacy policies of the individual third-party providers and service providers whose services we use on our website.
