Of course, we want to stay in contact with you and always present you with the most important news about our company. To do this, we use email marketing, an essential part of our online marketing, among other things. If you agree to this or if it is permitted by law, we will send you newsletters, e-mails or other notifications. When we use the term “newsletter” in the following text, we mainly mean e-mails that are sent regularly.
How long can we save your email address?
If you unsubscribe from our e-mail / newsletter distribution list, we may store your address for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests so that we can still prove your consent at the time. We are only allowed to process this data if we have to defend ourselves against any claims. However, if you confirm that you have given us your consent to subscribe to the newsletter, you can submit an individual request for deletion at any time. If you object to your consent permanently, we reserve the right to save your email address in a blacklist. As long as you have voluntarily subscribed to our newsletter, we will of course keep your email address.
In addition to our website, we are also active in social media. User data can be processed so that we can target users who are interested in us via the social networks. In addition, elements of a social media platform can also be embedded directly in our website. This is the case, for example, if you click a so-called social button on our website and are forwarded directly to our social media presence
We have built in functions from Instagram on our website. Instagram is a social media platform operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is a Facebook product. Embedding Instagram content on our website is called embedding. This enables us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit our website that has an Instagram function integrated, data is transmitted to Instagram, stored and processed. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data will thus be processed across all Facebook companies.
We use social plug-ins from the social media network LinkedIn, the company LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA on our website. The social plug-ins can be feeds, the sharing of content or the link to our LinkedIn page. The social plug-ins are clearly marked with the well-known LinkedIn logo and allow, for example, interesting content to be shared directly via our website. LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place in Dublin is responsible for data processing for the European Economic Area and Switzerland. By embedding such plug-ins, data can be sent to LinkedIn, saved and processed there. In this data protection declaration, we want to inform you which data is involved, how the network uses this data and how you can manage or prevent data storage.
We have installed YouTube videos on our website. So we can present you interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video portal that has been a subsidiary of Google since 2006. The video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you call up a page on our website that has embedded a YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to the YouTube or Google servers. Different data are transmitted (depending on the settings). Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing in Europe.
