Data collection on our website
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission. We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed. We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
We measure the reach of our website with Matomo, an open source tool that we operate on our own server.
If necessary, a cookie is set on the user’s terminal device, which can be used to track activities and, for example, recognize recurring visits. The user’s IP address is automatically shortened so that it is no longer possible to identify individual persons. Among other things, the approximate geographical location, terminal device, screen resolution, browser and pages visited, including the length of stay, are evaluated.
Insofar as we obtain the user’s consent, the processing of data is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter a) DSGVO. Otherwise, it is based on Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is the optimization of our website, the improvement of our offers and online marketing.
You can decide here whether a web analysis cookie may be stored in your browser to enable iS2 to collect and analyse statistical data.
Description and purpose: We use rapidmail to send newsletters. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße, 21, 79106 Freiburg, Germany. Among other things, rapidmail is used to organise and analyse the dispatch of newsletters. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter is stored on rapidmail’s servers in Germany. If you do not wish to have your data analysed by rapidmail, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can also unsubscribe directly on the website. For the purpose of analysis, the e-mails sent with rapidmail contain a so-called tracking pixel, which connects to the servers of rapidmail when the e-mail is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened. Furthermore, with the help of rapidmail we can determine whether and which links are clicked on in the newsletter message. All links in the email are so-called tracking links, with which your clicks can be counted.
Legal basis: The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.
Recipient: The recipient of the data is rapidmail GmbH.
Transmission to third countries: There is no transfer of data to third countries.
Duration: The data stored by us within the scope of your consent for the purpose of the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of rapidmail after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.
Possibility of revocation: You have the possibility to revoke your consent to data processing with effect for the future at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
