ITONICS protects your privacy. This privacy policy applies to the use of our website and our online registration service. They govern data collection, processing and use. If you use our website or online registration service, you agree to this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or how we treat personal data, please contact us. Write an e-mail to privacy@itonics.de or send a letter to us:

General information

As a rule, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. If personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis. We also collect navigation information. This is data about your computer and your visit to our website, in particular your IP address, your location, the browser you are using, referral source, length of your visit and pages you have opened.

In addition to other uses set forth in this Privacy Policy, we may use personal information to improve your browser experience by personalizing the Web pages and improving the registration service. By completing a registration form on our website, you consent to receiving e-mails from ITONICS. The e-mails contain information about useful content and offers.

We will not make your personal data, which we process for sending the e-mails, available to third parties.

You can unsubscribe from these e-mails at any time with effect for the future:

  • by clicking on the unsubscribe link contained in every e-mail
  • by e-mail to privacy@itonics.de
  • by letter to ITONICS GmbH, Emilienstraße 9, 90409 Nürnberg, Germany

We use navigation information to operate and improve the Websites and our registration service. We use navigational information alone or in combination with personal information to send you personalized information about our company. Navigation information is not shared with third parties.

§ 1 Information on the collection of personal data

(1) In the following, we inform you about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data is all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour.

(2) The person responsible pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is

ITONICS GmbH
Emilienstraße 9
90489 Nuremberg

E-mail: contact@itonics.de

(see also our imprint). You can reach our data protection officer at itonics@bsdatenschutz.de or our postal address with the addition "To the data protection officer".

(3) We do not use any procedures for automated decision-making including profiling pursuant to Art. 22 para. 1 and 4 GDPR.

(4) If we use commissioned service providers for individual functions of our offer or would like to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below.

§ 2 Your rights

(1) You have the following rights against a data controller in respect of personal data relating to you:

  • Right to information,
  • Right to rectification or erasure,
  • Right to restriction of processing,
  • Right to object to processing,
  • Right to data portability.

(2) You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data.

§ 3 Objection or revocation against the processing of your data

(1) If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you may revoke this consent at any time. Such a revocation affects the permissibility of the processing of your personal data after you have expressed it to us. The permissibility of the processing of your data up to the time of your revocation remains unaffected.

(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests, you can object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the performance of a contract with you, which is shown by us in each case in the following description of the functions. When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data in the way we have done. In the event of your objection, we will review the situation and either cease or adjust the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds for continuing the processing.

(3) When your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

§ 4 Collection of personal data when visiting our website

When using the website for informational purposes, i.e. simply viewing it without registering and without you providing us with any other information, we process the personal data that your browser transmits to our server.

§ 5 Processing of data on your end devices ("Cookie Policy")

(1) Cookies are stored on your terminal device when you use our website. Cookies are text files or information in a database that are stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you are using so that certain information can flow to the body that sets the cookie.

This website uses the following types of cookies, whose function and legal basis we will explain below:

  • Transient cookies: Such cookies, especially session cookies, are automatically deleted when the browser is closed or by logging out. They contain a so-called session ID. In this way, various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session and your computer can be recognised when you return to our website.
  • Persistent cookies: These are automatically deleted after a predefined duration, which is set differently depending on the cookie. You can view the cookies set and the duration at any time in the settings of your browser and delete the cookies manually.

Necessary cookies are absolutely essential so that the telemedia service you expressly requested can be provided. Without these techniques, our website cannot be displayed (completely correctly) or the support functions could not be enabled. They cannot be deselected. The legal basis is § 25 para. 2 no. 2 TTDSG, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest is the technical requirements for the presentation of the website.

We only set further cookies after your consent, which you can select on your first visit to our website via the so-called cookie consent tool (cookie banner). The functions are only activated in the event of your consent. The legal basis for this processing is § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation.

The functions we use, which you can select and revoke individually via the Consent Manager, are described below:

  • Preference cookies: These allow a website to remember information that affects the way a website behaves or looks, such as your preferred language or the region you are in.
  • Statistics cookies: they help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously
  • Marketing cookies: These are used to follow visitors on websites. The intention is to show ads that are relevant and engaging to the individual user and therefore more valuable to publishers and advertising third parties
  • External media cookies: Content from video platforms and social media platforms are blocked by default. If cookies from external media are accepted, access to this content no longer requires manual consent.

§ 6 Contacting

(1) You can contact us by e-mail or via the contact form on our website. In this case, the data you provide (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing the data is that we are unable to process your request or answer your query in the desired manner. We delete the data accruing in this context, if the enquiry is contract-related, after the deadlines for the term of the contract. Otherwise, we delete your data after storage is no longer necessary (e.g. if the enquiry has been completely dealt with) or restrict processing if there are statutory retention obligations.

(2) The legal basis of data processing for enquiries by e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the opening of contact options and participation in usual communication channels. When using the contact form, we ask for your consent. The legal basis of data processing for enquiries via the contact form is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation.

(3) We use Typeform, a service provided by TYPEFORM S.L., c/ Pallars 108 (Aticco - Typeform), 08018 - Barcelona, Spain ("Typeform") for our contact forms. Typeform processes the data you provide via the contact form on our behalf. In addition, information about your terminal device (IP address, device information, operating system, browser settings) as well as usage data such as date and time when you used the contact form are collected with the help of cookies. Typeform needs this data to ensure the presentation of the contact form and its functionality. You can find more information on data processing by Typeform at: https://www.typeform.com/help/a/what-is-gdpr-360029580771/

§ 7 Online application procedure

(1) You can submit your application documents by using our online application form, by post or by handing them in personally. We ask you to refrain from applying by e-mail.

In the course of submitting the application documents, personal data will be processed by us. Which personal data is processed when using our online application form can be seen from the respective input masks, whereby the necessary mandatory data is specially marked in each case. All other information is voluntary. In the course of sending your documents by post or in the case of personal handover, the personal data that you voluntarily provide to us will be collected.

(2) Your personal data will be used for the purpose of carrying out the application procedure and for the possible conclusion of an employment contract. Insofar as no employment relationship is established, your application documents will be deleted no later than 6 months after rejection. If you have decided to join our talent pool, your data will be deleted after one year.

In the event that we conclude an employment contract with you after the application process has been completed, the personal data collected during the application process will become part of your personnel file and will be used to implement the employment relationship.

(3) The legal basis for data processing in the context of the application procedure is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR. The legal basis for data processing in the context of the talent pool is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). You may revoke your consent at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until revocation.

The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required, but may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract. The possible consequence of not providing this data is that your application may not be considered or not considered sufficiently or that the application process may be delayed due to necessary enquiries.

(4) For the processing of your applicant data within the framework of the online application form, we use the software Personio, a service of Personio GmbH, Rundfunkplatz 4, 80335 Munich, Germany ("Personio"). The data transmitted as part of your application is transferred via TLS encryption and stored in a database operated by Personio. Personio is our processor in this context in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. The basis for the processing here is a contract for commissioned processing between us as the controller and Personio.

For more information about Personio's privacy practices, please visit: https://www.personio.de/datenschutz/.

§ 8 HubSpot

(1) Our website uses HubSpot, an online marketing service provided by HubSpot Inc, 25 First Street, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA ("Hubspot"). We use this integrated software solution for our own marketing purposes, for lead generation and for customer service purposes. This includes, but is not limited to, email marketing which governs the sending of newsletters as well as automated mailings, social media publishing and reporting, contact management such as benefit segmentation and CRM, landing pages and contact forms.

We primarily record the interactions between you as a user of the website and our website with the help of cookies, data on the device/browser, IP addresses and website or app activities. The duration of the storage of the cookies is stated in the Cookie Policy (§ 5) under Functional duration. Any data beyond this is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.

(2) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation.

There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing the data is that you will not be able to use our website to its full extent and we will not be able to use your data to improve our services.

(3) The information generated by the cookie and the IP addresses about your use of this website are usually transferred to a HubSpot server in the USA and processed there. There is currently no adequacy decision of the Commission for a data transfer to the USA, but HubSpot offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses. More information on the standard contractual clauses is available at https://legal.hubspot.com/dpa.

(5) Further information on data processing when using HubSpot is available at: https://legal.hubspot.com/privacy-policy.

§ 9 Google Analytics

(1) Our website uses Google Analytics, a web tracking service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). The purpose of our use of the tool is to enable the analysis of your user interactions on websites and in apps and to improve our offer through the statistics and reports obtained and to make it more interesting for you as a user.

We primarily record the interactions between you as a user of the website and our website with the help of cookies, data on the device/browser, IP addresses and website or app activities. The duration of the storage of the cookies is stated in the Cookie Policy (§ 5) under Functional duration. Google Analytics also collects your IP addresses in order to ensure the security of the service and to provide us, as the website operator, with information about the country, region or location from which the respective user originates (so-called "IP location determination"). For your protection, however, we naturally use the anonymisation function ("IP masking"), i.e. Google truncates the IP addresses by the last octet within the EU/EEA.

(2) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation. The easiest way to revoke your consent is to use our cookie banner or delete the cookies in your browser.

There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing it is that we cannot include your use of our website to improve our offer.

(3) The information generated by the cookie and the (usually shortened) IP addresses about your use of this website are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. There is currently no Commission adequacy decision for data transfer to the USA, but Google offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses. More information on the standard contractual clauses is available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?hl=de.

In addition, Google says it has imposed a standard on itself equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has pledged to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring data internationally.

(5) Further information on data processing when using Google Analytics can be found in Google's privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

§ 10 DoubleClick

(1) Our website uses DoubleClick, a marketing service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). The purpose of our use of the tool is to serve relevant ads to the user, to improve campaign performance reports or to avoid showing the same ads to the user more than once.

Google uses a cookie ID to record which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, Google can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user is shown a DoubleClick ad and later calls up the advertiser's website with the same browser and makes a purchase there. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information. The duration of the storage of the cookies is stated in the Cookie Policy (§ 5) under Functional duration.

(2) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation. The easiest way to revoke your consent is to use our cookie banner or delete the cookies in your browser.

There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing it is that you will be shown advertisements that are not tailored to your interests and that they will be shown more than once. In addition, your use of our website cannot be used to improve our advertising campaigns.

(3) By using the service, your browser automatically establishes a connection with Google's servers in the USA. There is currently no adequacy decision by the Commission for data transfer to the USA, but Google offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses. More information on the standard contractual clauses is available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?hl=de.

In addition, Google says it has imposed a standard on itself equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has pledged to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring data internationally.

(4) We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this service.

For more information on data processing when using DoubleClick, please refer to Google's privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

§ 12 Google Optimize

(1) Our website uses Google Optimize, a website optimisation service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). The purpose of our use of the tool is to use analytics to improve our website and optimise our Google Ads investment.

(2) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR).

There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing it is that we cannot consider your use of our website for improvement.

(3) The information generated by the cookie and the (usually shortened) IP addresses about your use of this website are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. There is currently no Commission adequacy decision for data transfer to the USA, but Google offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses. More information on the standard contractual clauses is available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?hl=de.

In addition, Google says it has imposed a standard on itself equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has pledged to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring data internationally.

(5) For more information on data processing when using Google Optimize, please refer to Google's privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

§ 13 Google reCAPTCHA

(1) Our website uses Google reCAPTCHA, a website analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). The purpose of our use of the tool is to determine, with the help of analyses of usage behaviour on our website, whether data input on our website (e.g. via contact form) is made by a human being or by an automated programme. This is to avoid automated requests (e.g. by spammers) and to increase the security of our website.

We primarily record the interactions between you as a user of the website and our website with the help of cookies, data on the device/browser, IP addresses and website or app activities. The duration of the storage of the cookies is stated in the Cookie Policy (§ 5) under Functional duration.

(2) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR).

(3) The information generated by the cookie and the (usually shortened) IP addresses about your use of this website are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. There is currently no Commission adequacy decision for data transfer to the USA, but Google offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses. More information on the standard contractual clauses is available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?hl=de.

In addition, Google says it has imposed a standard on itself equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has pledged to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring data internationally.

(5) For more information on data processing when using Google reCAPTCHA, please refer to Google's privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

§ 14 Google Maps

(1) Our website uses Google Maps, an online mapping service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). The purpose of our use of the tool is to be able to show you our company locations on a map and to enable you to plan a route there.

To enable you to use the functions of the online map service, Google sets a so-called cookie to transmit the information required for route planning (e.g. your location) to Google. The duration of the storage of the cookies is stated in the Cookie Policy (§ 5) under Functional duration.

(2) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation. The easiest way to revoke your consent is to use our cookie banner or delete the cookies in your browser.

There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing the data is that you will not be able to use the online map function.

(3) The information generated by the cookie and the (usually shortened) IP addresses about your use of this website are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. There is currently no Commission adequacy decision for data transfer to the USA, but Google offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses.

(5) Further information on data processing when using Google Maps can be found in Google's privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

§ 15 Vimeo

(1) Vimeo videos have been embedded on this website, a video portal of Vimeo.com, Inc., 330 West 34th Street, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10001, USA ("Vimeo"). The purpose of the integration is that videos stored on vimeo.com can be played directly from our website. The duration of the storage of the cookies is stated in the Cookie Policy (§ 5) under Functional duration.

(2) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation. The easiest way to revoke your consent is to use our cookie banner or delete the cookies in your browser.

There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing this data is that you will not be able to play the embedded Vimeo videos.

(3) The information collected is stored on Vimeo servers, also in the USA. There is currently no Commission adequacy decision for data transfer to the USA, but Vimeo offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses. For more information on the standard contractual clauses, please visit https://vimeo.com/privacy#international_data_transfers_and_certain_user_rights.

(4) When you play the videos, data is transmitted to Vimeo. This data includes your IP address, technical information about your device (e.g. browser type, operating system, basic device information), the website you visit and your activities. We have no influence on this data transmission.

For more information on data processing by Vimeo and the storage period of the data collected by Vimeo, please refer to the Vimeo privacy policy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

§ 16 Spotify

(1) Plugins from Spotify, an audio streaming platform of Spotify AB, Birger Jarlsgatan 61, 113 56 Stockholm, Sweden ("Spotify") have been integrated on this website. The purpose of the integration is that audio files, albums or playlists stored on Spotify's servers can be played directly from our website.

We use Spotify by embedding individual audio files, albums or playlists from the platform on our website as a so-called iFrame, so that they can be played directly on our website as a stream. When you visit a sub-page of our website on which a Spotify plug-in is embedded, a connection is established to the Spotify servers and the plug-in is displayed within our website. This transmits to Spotify your IP address and the information about which website you have visited and which audio file you have listened to. If you are logged in as a Spotify user, Spotify assigns this data to your user account. If you do not want Spotify to associate your visit to our website with your Spotify user account, please log out of your Spotify user account.

(2) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation.

There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing this data is that you will not be able to play the embedded audio plug-ins.

(3) We do not collect any personal data about your use of the audio plugins. Through the connection with the Spotify servers, personal data (e.g. your IP address) is transmitted there. For more information on data processing by Spotify and the storage period of the data collected by Spotify, please refer to Spotify's privacy policy at: https://www.spotify.com/de/legal/privacy-policy/.

Spotify's servers are located in the USA. There is currently no Commission adequacy decision for data transfers to the USA, but Spotify offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses. More information on the standard contractual clauses is available at: https://www.spotify.com/de/legal/privacy-policy/#7-%C3%BCbermittlung-in-andere-l%C3%A4nder.

§ 17 LinkedIn

1) In addition to our website, we also use the social media platform LinkedIn to present our company. The social media platform LinkedIn is operated by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland ("LinkedIn").

You can find the imprint of LinkedIn at: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/impressum

You can reach LinkedIn via the contact form provided: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/ask/PPQ

You can reach LinkedIn's data protection officer at LinkedIn's postal address with the addition "Legal Dept. (Privacy Policy and User Agreement)" or via the contact form provided for this purpose at the following address: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/ask/ppq.

When visiting our company page on LinkedIn, data processing is carried out under joint responsibility. The relevant agreement pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR can be found at the following address: https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum

(2) We would like to point out that you use our presence on LinkedIn and the functions of the social media platform on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). When you visit our LinkedIn page, LinkedIn collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your terminal device in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the LinkedIn page, with statistical information about your interaction with us.

Further information on data processing by LinkedIn can be found in LinkedIn's privacy policy at: https://de.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

(3) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information is your consent, which you have given to us or LinkedIn (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation.

There is no obligation to provide the personal data. The possible consequence of not providing it is that you cannot visit our company's LinkedIn page or view and interact with our posts on the social media platform.

(4) The social media platform LinkedIn is operated on servers in the USA. There is currently no adequacy decision by the Commission for data transfer to the USA, but LinkedIn offers suitable guarantees by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses. More information on the standard contractual clauses is available at the following addresses:

(5) To exercise your data protection rights, you can contact us or LinkedIn. To the extent that one party is not responsible for responding or needs to obtain the information from the other party, we or LinkedIn will then forward your request to the relevant partner. Please contact LinkedIn directly for questions about profiling and processing of your data when using the LinkedIn site. If you have any questions about the processing of your interaction with us on our LinkedIn site, you can contact us at the contact details provided in § 1.

§18 Newsletter

We send newsletters and other electronic messages containing advertising information (hereinafter referred to as "newsletters") only with the consent of the recipient. Newsletters generally contain information about our products, offers, promotions and the activities of our company.

The registration to our newsletter takes place via our website. To log the registration, the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address are stored.

Dispatch service provider: The newsletter is dispatched by HubSpot, 2nd Floor 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland, phone: +353 1 5187500, https://www.hubspot.de

HubSpot is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with the European level of data protection.

The dispatch service provider generally uses the processed data in pseudonymous form (i.e. without allocation to a user) for the optimisation or improvement of its own services (e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes). However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data to contact the recipients of the newsletter itself. He also does not pass on the data.

The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a file the size of a pixel, which is called up by the server of the dispatch service provider when the newsletter is opened.

Technical information (type of browser, system data, e.g. IP address) is collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked.

This information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not our aim to observe individual users. Rather, the evaluations serve us 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.

Cancellation/revocation - You can revoke your consent to receive our newsletter at any time. Thus your consents to its dispatch by the dispatch service provider and the statistical analyses expire at the same time. A separate revocation of the shipment by the shipping service provider or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. If users have only subscribed to the newsletter and canceled their subscription, their personal data will be deleted.

§19 Disclaimer

We constantly check and update the content that we have published on our website. We assume no liability or guarantee for the topicality, correctness and completeness of the published contents.
