General information on data processing
Scope of processing personal data
We generally only process personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the data subject’s consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as the legal basis.
When processing personal data, which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR as the legal basis for processing.
Deletion of data and duration of storage
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
Provision of the website and creation of log files

Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. To do this, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.

Our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after sixty days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that it is no longer possible to assign the calling client.
Opposition and removal options
The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility for the user to object.

Notes on the newsletter and consent
With the following information, we will clarify the content of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedure as well as your right to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.
Content of the newsletter
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or with a legal permission. Insofar as the content of a newsletter is specifically described, it is decisive for the consent of the user. In addition, our newsletters contain information about personnel issues, especially from the field of junior staff and about our agency (this may include references to blog posts, lectures or workshops, our services or online presence).
Double opt-in and logging
The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with someone else’s email address.
The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to demonstrate the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation, as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored at MailChimp are also logged.
Use of the shipping service provider “MailChimp”
The newsletter is sent using “MailChimp”, a newsletter delivery platform from the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of this information, are stored on MailChimp’s servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp can use this data to optimize or improve its own services, for example to technically optimize the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves or to pass them on to third parties.
To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your email address.
Optionally, we ask you to provide your first and last name. This information only serves to personalize the newsletter. We also ask you to optionally provide your date of birth, gender and your industry. We only use this information to adapt the content of the newsletter to the interests of our readers.
Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, ie a pixel-sized file that is called up by the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. As part 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 to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their access locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
Online access and data management
In this context, we would like to point out that cookies are used on the MailChimp website and thus personal data are processed by MailChimp, its partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection. You can find further information in MailChimp’s data protection declaration . We would also like to point out the options for objection to data collection for advertising purposes on the websites http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (for the European region).
Termination / revocation
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie revoke your consent. This will simultaneously expire your consent to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analyzes. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.
You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
Legal basis of the General Data Protection Regulation
In accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that will apply from May 25, 2018, we inform you that the consent to the sending of email addresses is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, 7 GDPR and Section 7 Paragraph 2 No. 3 and Paragraph 3 UWG. The us
