6.1 Registration for our newsletter
In order to verify that a registration for the sending of a newsletter is made by the actual owner of an e-mail address, we use the so-called “double opt-in” procedure. In this process, after registration of an e-mail address, a confirmation e-mail is sent to the registered e-mail address. Registration for the newsletter is only completed when a confirmation link contained in the confirmation e-mail is activated. The IP address of the calling computer and the date and time of activation of the confirmation link are also transmitted to us.
The registration for the newsletter can be terminated at any time by using the unsubscribe link contained in each newsletter or by contacting us at the above contact details.

The legal basis for this analysis is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR.
6.3 Newsletter service provider
We use an external service provider as a data processor for sending and analyzing our newsletter on the basis of a data processing agreement pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.

We provide appropriate safeguards for this data transfer in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR.

When you visit our website, cookies are set that are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. These essential cookies may be, for example, cookies that are necessary for the display of the website with a content management system (e.g., TYPO3), which are used to recognize language settings, or which are used to document whether you have consented to the setting of further (non-essential) cookies or whether you have rejected them.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using essential cookies is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the operation of our website.

8. GOOGLE TAG MANAGER
We use Google Tag Manager on our website. Through this service, website tags can be managed via an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used, and no personal data is collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
9. WEB ANALYTICS
We use web analytics services on our website or on parts of the website to record how our website is used by its visitors and to optimize the website and its presentation.
We use the web analytics service Google Analytics with IP anonymization. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”). Cookies are set as part of Google Analytics. In addition, data is transmitted to Google servers in the USA. Within the scope of IP anonymization, the collected IP address of the user is shortened by Google within the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases, in the event of technical faults in Europe, will the unabbreviated IP address be transmitted to Google in the USA and shortened there. The transmitted IP addresses will not be merged with other data from Google.
When using Google Analytics, personal data may be transferred to a third country outside the EU without an adequate level of data protection. We provide appropriate safeguards for this data transfer in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR. We will be happy to provide you with proof of the appropriate safeguards (Standard Contractual Clauses/Standard Data Protection Clauses) upon request.
The legal basis for this data processing is your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR.

YouTube videos are embedded on our website. These are provided, via a plugin, by Google Ireland Ltd. in Ireland (“YouTube”).
We use the “extended data protection settings” for embedded YouTube videos, this means that YouTube does not set any cookies.

When using YouTube, personal data may be transferred to a third country outside the EU without an adequate level of data protection. We provide appropriate safeguards for this data transfer in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR.
