Overview over our data processing

In con­junc­tion with our online pres­ence, we process your data as follows:

  • Web­site
    Our web serv­er col­lects and saves infor­ma­tion about page access includ­ing their sta­tus for a few days for the pur­pose of error cor­rec­tion and attack analysis.
    (further infor­ma­tion)
  • Web­site (usage statistics)
    We cre­ate anony­mous sta­tis­tics about the use or our site. As we want to use rela­tions between the pages for that pur­pose, we use cook­ies to re-iden­ti­fy you as a pre­vi­ous user (we just do that if you have giv­en your consent).
    (fur­ther infor­ma­tion)
  • Con­tact form
    When you sub­mit infor­ma­tion via our con­tact form, it will be processed by the web serv­er sole­ly for send­ing us an email. The email is han­dled equal­ly to any oth­er email you may send us. We process per­son­al data in these mes­sages based on our legit­i­mate inter­est which lies in ful­fill­ing your request. Poten­tial­ly we also process it to ful­fill con­trac­tu­al oblig­a­tions. Lat­er we keep the data in order to com­ply with legal oblig­a­tions regard­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion of com­mer­cial com­mu­ni­ca­tion until these oblig­a­tions end.
  • White paper download
    When you fill and send our white paper con­tact form to receive our white paper, the serv­er sends us an email with the data you have pro­vid­ed. We will there­after pro­vide you with the white-paper and allow you to reg­is­ter for our newslet­ter. The email is processed to ful­fill your request (con­tract). We will not fur­ther work with your email but keep it in our doc­u­men­ta­tion in con­junc­tion with our legal doc­u­men­ta­tion oblig­a­tions (up to 10 years).
  • Newslet­ter
    Our newslet­ter sys­tem is not active yet. We will there­fore ini­tial­ly man­u­al­ly process your data in a table if you wish to receive our newslet­ter. As soon as we have cho­sen a newslet­ter proces­sor, we will inform you accord­ing­ly and hand over the data after two weeks unless you recall your pro­cess­ing con­sent. We intend to use a Euro­pean provider. For the newslet­ter, we require your email address but kind­ly ask you to pro­vide us with your name and com­pa­ny as to enable us to address you per­son­al­ly. The pro­cess­ing is based on your con­sent which you can nat­u­ral­ly with­draw anytime.

Your rights

You can ask for infor­ma­tion about your data we process, includ­ing trans­mis­sion to third par­ties; you may also ask for cor­rec­tion and for dele­tion or restric­tion of pro­cess­ing of the data. We here­by inform you that for data saved in con­junc­tion with our web­site, we reg­u­lar­ly do not have the pos­si­bil­i­ty to attribute the data to you our­selves and we may hence need fur­ther infor­ma­tion from you to ful­fil the request; in such cas­es we will inform you accord­ing­ly and pro­vide you with the request­ed infor­ma­tion as soon as we have received the nec­es­sary fur­ther infor­ma­tion. Please con­tact us direct­ly in all such cas­es (you find the con­tact paths in the imprint).

For data we process based on your con­sent or to ful­fill a con­trac­tu­al rela­tion­ship, you can request a copy of such data. How­ev­er, we will exclude data whose han­dover would infringe rights and free­doms of third parties.

In case we process your data based on legit­i­mate inter­est, you have the right to object based on grounds relat­ing to your par­tic­u­lar situation.

You can revoke your cook­ie con­sent at any time by click­ing on the fol­low­ing but­ton: Revoke cookie settings

Fur­ther­more, you have the statu­to­ry right to address a respon­si­ble data pro­tec­tion authority.

Web­site and tracking


Your com­mu­ni­ca­tion will in all reg­u­lar cas­es be encrypt­ed (TLS/SSL), so data can­not be read by third par­ties with rea­son­able effort (we can­not com­plete­ly exclude it, though). You will see your browsers mark­ing for encrypt­ed sites.

Serv­er logs of IP address­es and requests

Our sys­tem saves access log. They gen­er­al­ly contain:

  • The request­ed address (URL)
  • Your brows­er type, ver­sion and oper­at­ing sys­tem used (as trans­mit­ted by your browser)
  • The page from which the URL has been access (refer­rer, as and inso­far trans­mit­ted by your browser)
  • The time­stamp of access­ing the page
  • Your IP Address
  • The result of the request (sta­tus-code) (e.g. whether the page has suc­cess­ful­ly been loaded, has been redi­rect­ed to anoth­er page or whether/which error has occurred)
  • We can­not attribute this data to any per­son; the IP address could poten­tial­ly be resolved to the own­er of the inter­net con­tract by your provider (we will not ask for that). Sole­ly for cas­es of ille­gal usage (such as hack­ing) we reserve the right to ver­i­fy the data at a lat­er stage and to take fur­ther action.

The data pro­cess­ing includ­ing sav­ing is based on legit­i­mate inter­est for the pur­pose of error and attack diagnosis.

Log­files are being saved for sev­en days.

Con­tact form

When you send us mes­sages via the con­tact form, the serv­er will process the data to send us an email on your behalf. This email will be processed accord­ing­ly to oth­er emails we receive and will be saved as nec­es­sary under applic­a­ble laws.

What are cookies?

Inter­net sites are state­less by default. That is, the serv­er basi­cal­ly does not know who you are, where you come from and whether you have already vis­it­ed the site. Cook­ies help to estab­lish a sta­tus. Thanks to them, the serv­er may, for exam­ple, iden­ti­fy whether you have logged in as a user or whether you have recent­ly vis­it­ed the page. This is done by send­ing your brows­er tiny text files, which your soft­ware saves and sends to the serv­er togeth­er with the next request. Fur­ther infor­ma­tion can be found in Wikipedia. You may change your pref­er­ence at any time (please see chap­ter “Your rights”).

As far as you have made your cook­ie choice, one sin­gle cook­ie will be set in any case. This cook­ie named cookie_notice_accepted does not store any per­son­al data, just your choice whether you want cook­ies or not (that is tech­ni­cal­ly necessary).

Usage statistics

We cre­ate sta­tis­tics about your use of our web­site. We can­not attribute this infor­ma­tion to you as a per­son, espe­cial­ly we do not cor­re­late them with any per­son­al data you may have entered such as your name or email address. Hence, no per­son­al data should be cre­at­ed. We use the sta­tis­tics tool mato­mo with pri­va­cy friend­ly set­tings, for exam­ple we anonymize your IP address before sav­ing it. The cook­ies used by the sys­tem are used to iden­ti­fy whether a per­son has ear­li­er vis­it­ed the page. The cor­re­spond­ing data is pseu­do­ny­mous and we do not have any pos­si­b­li­ty to attribute it to you con­crete­ly. The sta­tis­tics sys­tem uses cook­ies with names begin­ning with _pk_ref, _pk_cvar, _pk_id, _pk_ses.

The data pro­cess­ing is based on our legit­i­mate inter­est which lies in adapt­ing our page to your needs and inter­ests. You may object such pro­cess­ing, for fur­ther infor­ma­tion see sec­tion your rights. In that case we will set a cook­ie stat­ing that you do not want to be tracked and our sys­tem will not set any track­ing cookies.

We use the fol­low­ing data for cre­at­ing statistics:

  • Cook­ies
  • IP address (anonymized by drop­ping half of the address and only using the first two bytes of IPv4 addresses)
  • User ID
  • Cus­tom Dimensions
  • Cus­tom Variables

And also:

  • Date and time
  • Title of the page being viewed
  • URL of the page being viewed
  • URL of the page that was viewed pri­or to the cur­rent page
  • Screen res­o­lu­tion
  • Time in local timezone
  • Files that were clicked and downloaded
  • Link clicks to an out­side domain
  • Pages gen­er­a­tion time
  • Coun­try, region, city
  • Main Lan­guage of the browser
  • User Agent of the browser
