Any personal details collected as part of the press mailing list subscription will only be used for the purpose of processing the subscription and dealing with your enquiries. Any personal information that we collect apart from your address, especially the job function and medium that you work for, help us pinpoint and deliver topics relevant for your target audience. Your details will not be passed on to third parties. No use will be made of your details for consulting purposes, for advertising or for market research. If you cancel your subscription, all your personal details will be deleted from our database.

Postal addresses and email addresses that you provide when you make an enquiry or order information materials are used exclusively for correspondence or delivery purposes. When you use other web-based services that require the submission of more extensive personal data, such as online job applications, the data protection declarations adapted to those services will also apply.

Some internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do no harm to your computer and do not contain viruses. They are used to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain on your device memory until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser in a way that you are informed about the use of cookies or that you allow cookies only in individual cases, or that you exclude cookies in certain cases, or to delete cookies upon closing a browser session. Please be aware that you might restrict the functionality of this website by deactivating cookies.

In order to optimise our online contents, we evaluate how users navigate our websites.

For this we analyse the following data derived from HTTP requests:

Part of your IP address (that is, the numerical label identifying your computer access point). However, your IP address is being anonymised by deleting the final two parts (blocks of numbers) of the address,
the web page you have requested,
information regarding the type of internet browser and operating system used, and
possibly the page visited before accessing our website (referrer information).
In addition, we use cookies to identify returning users. We also collect web data about user behaviour on our websites. For such web analytics we employ the software Matomo (former known as Piwik), which is installed on our servers and certified according to German privacy law. You have the right, at any time, to opt out of this gathering of anonymous, non-personalised data. In order for this opting out to be effective, a cookie will be stored in your internet browser.

Both Piwik and Heatmap honour the “do not track” settings of your internet browser. If you would like to activate these setting, please read the instructions provided here.
