The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” symbol) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”.

Newsletter and newsletter tracking
Auf unserer Website besteht die Möglichkeit kostenfreie Newsletter zu abonnieren Welche personenbezogenen Daten bei der Bestellung des Newsletters an den für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen übermittelt werden, ergibt sich aus der hierzu verwendeten Eingabemaske.
Für die Verarbeitung der Daten wird im Rahmen des Anmeldevorgang Ihre Einwilligung eingeholt und auf diese Datenschutzerklärung verwiesen. An die von einer betroffenen Person erstmalig für den Newsletterversand eingetragene E-Mail-Adresse wird eine Bestätigungsmail im Double-Opt-In-Verfahren versendet. Diese Bestätigungsmail dient der Überprüfung, ob der Inhaber der E-Mail-Adresse als betroffene Person den Empfang des Newsletters autorisiert hat.
When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time.
In connection with the data processing for the dispatch of newsletters, your specified data is passed on to our newsletter provider CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. Germany. In this regard, we have concluded a processing contract within the meaning of Art 28 GDPR. Your data will only be used to send newsletters.
Our newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Using the embedded tracking pixel, we can see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail were called up by the data subject. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the person responsible for processing in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the person concerned. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted.
Integration of services and content from third parties
On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR), we use content or service offers from third-party providers to improve their content and services , for example to integrate videos, maps or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”). This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, as they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of our online offer, and can also be linked to such information from other sources.
The following illustration provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, along with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, possibilities of objection (so-called “opt-out”):
If our customers use the payment services of third parties (e.g. Sofort, PayPal etc.), the terms and conditions and the data protection notices of the respective third party providers, which can be called up within the respective websites or transaction applications, apply.
