4. Social media
LinkedIn Conversion Tracking: Our website uses LinkedIn’s analysis and conversion tracking technology. This ensures that the ads you view are more relevant and based on your interests. Additionally, we also receive aggregate and anonymous reports from LinkedIn on the performance of ads and how they interact with our website.
Further information on LinkedIn’s data protection is available at: www.linkedin.com. You may opt out of LinkedIn’s analysis of your usage behavior, as well as the display of interest-based ads. Just click on the button “Opt out on LinkedIn” (if you're a LinkedIn member) or “Opt out” (if you're not on LinkedIn) on the following page: Opt-Out.
Facebook Conversion Tracking: Our website uses Facebook’s analysis and
conversion tracking technology. This ensures that the ads you view are more
relevant and based on your interests. Additionally, we also receive and aggregate anonymous reports from Facebook on the performance of ads and how they interact with our website.
Further information on Facebook’s data protection is available at: www.facebook.com.
5. Analytics and advertising
Our website uses the consent free tracking option of the open-source Matomo analytics tool. It does not transfer any data to servers outside the control of DA. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files stored in your local browser cache. These cookies enable the recognition of your browser. The data collected by the tracking technologies are not used to determine the personal identity of website visitors and are not compiled together with personal data related to the person referred to by the pseudonym unless expressly agreed to by the person concerned.
The storage of Matomo cookies is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can object to the collection and storage of your data at any time with future effect.
For more information on how this service works and what data is collected, please visit www.matomo.org.
To opt out of tracking via Matomo, please click on this link: Opt Out.
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
This website uses MailChimp to send newsletters. The supplier is The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA. MailChimp is a service which organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. The data you provide (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter will be stored on MailChimp servers, maybe even outside of the EU but under protection of SCCs.
Sending our newsletters with MailChimp enables us to analyze the behavior of newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can find out how many recipients have opened the email containing the newsletter and how often various links contained therein are clicked. With the help of conversion tracking, we can also analyze whether a predefined action (such as the purchase of a product on our website) takes place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on how data is analyzed by MailChimp, please visit www.mailchimp.com.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.
Completion of an outsourced data processing contract
We have entered into an agreement with MailChimp for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using MailChimp.
