What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Information entered into the contact forms in retained for the purpose of responding to the enquiry only.
If you are opted in to receive marketing e-mails from us and wish to unsubscribe, you can do so by clicking on the Unsubscribe hyperlink at the bottom of the marketing e-mail you receive. We will note in our database that you have elected to opt out of future e-mails from our company. Your record will still remain in our database but you will not receive any future mailings unless we receive explicit consent from you.
If you choose to receive our newsletters by using the newsletter sign up box on our website (or you have given us explicit written consent at a promotional event), you may receive marketing emails including information such as new products, links to blog posts and third-party websites or special offers.
Our newsletters contain cookies that are retrieved by the server of the service provider that sends the newsletter, as soon as the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for technical improvement or to analyse the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical data collection also includes determining if and when the newsletters are opened and which links are clicked and when they are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. These analyses are primarily intended to help us to identify the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content based on user interests.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
On this website we use HubSpot for our online marketing activities.
This is an integrated software solution that we use to cover different aspects of our online marketing. This may includes, among others:
Email marketing (newsletter, together with automated mailings, e.g., for provision of downloads), social media publishing & reporting, reporting (e.g., traffic sources, accesses, etc. …), contact management (e.g., user segmentation & CRM), landing pages and contact forms.
Moreover, we may use the live chat service “messages” from HubSpot on some sub-pages to improve users’ experience on our website for the sending and receipt of notifications. If you consent to and use this feature, then the following data are transferred to the HubSpot servers:
– Content of all chat messages sent and received
– Context information (e.g., page on which the chat was used)
– Optional: Email address of the user (if it is provided by the user via the chat feature)
The legal basis for the use of HubSpot’s services is article 6 (1) f) GDPR – justified interest. Our justified interest in the use of this service is the optimization of our marketing measures and the improvement of our service quality on the website.
