If you contact us via e-mail or using the contact form, the information you have provided is saved for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for any follow-up questions. The information you have provided may be saved in a customer relationship management system (“CRM system”) or comparable inquiry organization.
The legal basis for processing your data, which is transmitted if you contact us using the contact form or by e-mail, is our legitimate interest (facilitating contact) (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) and, if you are or would like to become our customer, initiating or fulfilling a contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR).
Your personal data will be deleted once it is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

The conversation has ended once circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been clarified between us and you. We review the necessity every two years; furthermore, statutory retention obligations apply.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in the context of your contact via the contact form or by e-mail within the framework of the statutory provisions at any time with future effect. In such cases, we will no longer be able to continue our conversation with you. All personal data saved in the process of making contact with you will be deleted in this case, unless statutory retention periods apply.

Your personal data must be processed in cases a) and b) for the purpose of performing the contract and for invoicing purposes.
3.4 Consent under data protection law
In addition to offering the services you request, we would like to customize our website to your specific interests – only, of course, if you explicitly agree for us to do so at a separate place. For this purpose, it is necessary from a technical standpoint that we combine the data collected on you and the data you enter into a usage profile, which we then evaluate for the aforementioned purposes. This evaluation is only carried out internally and only for the aforementioned purposes. You can provide your consent separately. You can then revoke this consent at any time with future effect.
3.5 TEST API-KEY
We offer the option of creating a test API key on our website. The data entered into the form for this purpose (in particular, your name and e-mail address) is used only for the purpose of registering for the API to use it with our test bank and for developer support.
Legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Your personal data will be deleted once it is no longer required to provide the test API key. You can object to the processing of your personal data within the framework of the statutory provisions at any time with future effect. In this case, however, the API key will no longer be available to you.
3.6 Newsletter / Whitepaper
If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter / white paper we offer, we will require a valid e-mail address from you, as well as your name. In addition to the first white paper, we will send you further newsletters / white papers with topics appropriate for your industry / your company (approx. once per month).
To ensure you are the owner of the provided e-mail address or that the owner of that address agrees to receive the newsletter / white paper, after the first step of registration we will send an automated e-mail to the provided e-mail address (double opt in process). Only after the newsletter / white paper registration is confirmed via a link in the confirmation e-mail will we include the given e-mail address in our distribution list. We will not collect any further data beyond the e-mail address, name and confirmation of registration.
Your data is processed only for the purpose of sending you the newsletter / white paper to which you have subscribed. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent). You granted us your consent when you ordered the newsletter / white paper. Conditional upon your request to delete it, data used to send the newsletter / white paper will be saved for as long as we need it to send the newsletter / white paper. Therefore, data will be deleted when you unsubscribe from the newsletter / white paper, or when we receive more than two (2) notifications that a newsletter / white paper cannot be delivered, or when we cease delivery of the newsletter / white paper to which you have subscribed generally. You can revoke your consent to save your data and to use it to send you the newsletter / white paper at any time with future effect, e.g. via e-mail to [email@example.com] or by clicking the unsubscribe link provided in every newsletter / white paper.
We use the MailChimp service of The Rocket Science Group (LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA) (“Rocket”) to deliver our newsletter / white paper on our website. Data saved when you register for the newsletter / white paper is transmitted to Rocket and saved on Rocket servers there. This data is not transmitted to other third parties. After you register for the newsletter / white paper, MailChimp will send you an e-mail to confirm your registration. In addition, MailChimp uses analytic functions to determine how the newsletter is opened and used; for instance to how many users an e-mail is sent, whether e-mails are rejected, and whether users have unsubscribed from the list after receiving an e-mail. These analyses are only group-based, and we do not use them for the purpose of individual evaluations. MailChimp also uses the “Google Analytics” tool (cf. clause “5.2.1. Use of Google Analytics”) from Google, Inc. This analytic tool is integrated into the newsletter in some cases. Rocket signed the “Privacy Shield” on 11/29/2016, which is a data privacy agreement between the EU and USA. By doing so, Rocket undertakes to comply with data privacy regulations. (Further information on data privacy at MailChimp is provided at: http://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/).

We use so-called cookies or other technologies such as web beacons (collectively referred to as “cookies”) to optimize our website. There are two types of cookies:
- Session cookies, i.e. small text files sent by a specific server when you visit a website and saved in the buffer memory on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, which allows us to classify various inquiries made by your browser to the overall session. This allows us to recognize your computer when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They are used, for instance, to allow you to use the shopping cart function across multiple pages.
- Persistent cookies (these are also small text files saved on your device) which remain on your device and allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. These cookies are saved on your hard drive and automatically deleted after the specified time. They have terms ranging from 1 month to 10 years. These cookies help us make our services more user-friendly, effective, and secure, and allow us to show information on the page that is specially tailored to your interests.
5.1 Essential Cookies
Essential cookies (also called technical necessary cookies) are cookies which are necessary for the functioning of our website, e.g. login cookies, shopping cart cookies, cookies of the Usercentrics Consent Management Platform which are used for the administration of your cookie settings as well as the Google Tag Manager Cookies which we use to integrate and administer the cookies used on our website.
5.2 Statistic Cookies
Statistic Cookies help us to optimize our website and to provide you with the best possible information.
When a cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number. Your personal data is not associated with this identification number. Your name, IP address, or similar data that would make it possible to associate the cookie with your person are not stored in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology we only receive pseudonymized information, such as information on which pages of our website you have visited, which products you have viewed, etc.
Legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent).
5.2.1 Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies,” text files saved on your computer which allow us to analyze your use of the website. Information generated by the cookie on page visitors’ use of this website is typically transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there.
This transmission is the basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
Google has accepted and been certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA. Under this agreement, Google undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. Further information is available at the following link: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.
We have activated IP anonymization on this website (anonymizeIp). However, Google abbreviates your IP address within a member state of the European Union or in another contracting state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area in advance. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, assemble reports on website activities, and provide us with further services related to website usage and internet usage.
The IP address transmitted by your browser in the course of Google Analytics is not combined with other information from Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved by changing your browser software settings; however, if you do so we would like to inform you that you may not be able to use all the functions of our website in full.
You can also prevent transmission of the data generated by the cookie regarding your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an alternative to the browser plug-in or on browsers on mobile devices, you can click the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent Google Analytics from recording data within this website in the future (this opt-out cookie will only function in this browser and for this domain. If you delete the cookies in your browser, you will have to click this link once again): [Deactivate Google Analytics]

5.3 Marketing Cookies
Marketing Cookies help us to carry out online marketing activities. They also serve the purpose to measure marketing campaigns on external websites as well as to optimize our marketing measures.
Legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent).
5.3.1 Google Adwords
Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you accessed our website via an ad displayed by Google, Google Adwords will save a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie will be saved when a user clicks an ad displayed by Google. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user clicked the ad and was transferred to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a unique cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained through the conversion cookies is used to prepare conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. Customers receive the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were transferred to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that can be used to personally identify users.
If you do not want to take part in tracking, you can refuse to allow the cookie required for this purpose to be saved – for instance by deactivating browser settings that generally allow cookies to be saved, or setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com.”
Please note that you may not delete opt-out cookies if you do not want measured data to be recorded. If you have deleted all the cookies in your browser, you must re-set the specific opt-out cookie.
