What personal data do we process and from which sources does such data originate?

When we make our platform available to you for use, we process personal data from various sources. On the one hand, this is data that we automatically collect when you use the platform. However, this may also include data which you have voluntarily provided to us.


Data that we collect automatically when you use our platform

As soon as you visit the Platform, you send technical information to our web servers. In this case, we collect the following access data and web access data (which we refer to collectively as "access data"):

  • the IP address of your device
  • the reference URL (the website from which you may have been redirected)
  • the visited subpages of the website; and
  • further information about your device (device type, browser type and version, settings, installed plug-ins, operating system)

We process access data so that we can ensure the functionality of the platform. We also process access data to carry out performance analyses on the platform, continuously improve the platform and correct errors to ensure IT security and the operation of our systems, and to prevent or detect misuse, particularly fraud. The legal basis for the collection of this data is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR).

In addition, we process access data to adapt the platform to your needs (personalisation). To this end, we also assign you what is known as a "Unique User ID".

We also use cookies to process such data. Cookies are small text files that you download to your device when you visit our websites and that store the above information about you.

For example, we record if the newsletter was delivered, if you opened the newsletter or if you clicked on a link in the newsletter. We link your email address to this data in order to personalise and statistically analyse the newsletter.

You can withdraw your consent to receive newsletters and the connected data collection at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs in accordance with the basic tariffs.
