etracker (

The host of this website relies on the services of etracker GmbH in Hamburg, Germany ( for the purposes of analysing usage data. This involves the use of cookies, which make it possible to perform a statistical analysis of how visitors use this website and to display user-oriented content or advertising. Cookies are small files that are stored by the Internet browser on the user’s device. etracker cookies do not contain any information that could be used to identify a user.

The data produced by etracker is processed and stored exclusively in Germany on behalf of the provider of this website by etracker and is therefore subject to the strict German and European data protection laws and standards. To this effect, etracker has been independently tested, certified and awarded the data protection privacy seal ePrivacyseal.

Data processing is performed on the legal basis of Art. 6(1)(f) (legitimate interest) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our legitimate interest consists of the optimisation of our online service and our web presence.

Social Networks / Social Media


On the basis of our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimisation and commercial operation of our online service as laid down in Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, we use social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) provided by the social network, which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Rand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Irland (“Meta Platforms Ireland”). This may include content, such as images, videos or texts and buttons that enable users to share content from this online service within Facebook. The list and appearance of Facebook plugins can be viewed here:

When a user invokes a feature of this online service that contains such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to Meta Platforms Ireland servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Meta Platforms Ireland directly to the user’s device and integrated into the online service from there. During this process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and we are therefore informing users accordingly.

By incorporating the plugin, Meta Platforms Irelandis able to receive information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online service. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Meta Platforms Ireland can link the visit to his or her Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, by clicking the Like button or writing a comment, the corresponding information is directly transmitted from your device to Meta Platforms Ireland and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still a possibility that Meta Platforms Ireland will find out his or her IP address and store it. According to Meta Platforms Ireland, only anonymised IP addresses are stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and additional processing and use of the data by Meta Platforms Ireland as well as the corresponding rights and configuration options for protecting the privacy of users can be found in Meta Platforms Ireland Data Policy:

If a user is a Meta Platforms Ireland member and does not want Meta Platforms Ireland to collect data about him or her via this online service and link it to his or her membership data stored on Meta Platforms Ireland, he or she must log out of Facebook and delete his or her cookies before using our online service. More settings and ways to withdraw your consent to the use of your data for advertising purposes are available within Facebook profile settings: or via the US page or the EU page The settings apply across all platforms, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.


This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the “YouTube” platform provided by Google Ltd., Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The extended data protection mode is used, which, according to the provider, does not initiate the storage of user information until the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider uses “YouTube” cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to “YouTube”, these serve, among other things, to collect video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent abusive practices. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly linked to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want the data to be linked to your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles and evaluates this. In particular, your data is evaluated in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR based on the legitimate interest of Google in inserting customised advertising, market surveys and/or tailoring the design of its website to your needs. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, but you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

Regardless of the playback of the embedded videos, every time this website is accessed, a connection to the Google network “DoubleClick” is established, which can trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

Subscribing to our e-mail newsletter

If you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we will send you regular information about our offers. The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The disclosure of any other data is voluntary and will be used to enable us to address you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in process for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only ever send you an e-mail newsletter if you have expressly confirmed to us that you agree to the sending of newsletters. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters by clicking on an appropriate link.

By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent to the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration so that we can trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later time. The data collected by us when you register for the newsletter will be used exclusively for the purpose of advertising by means of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided in the newsletter. You also have the option to directly edit your settings in our members’ area or to unsubscribe from the newsletter using the form that can be found there. Once you have unsubscribed, your e-mail address will immediately be deleted from our newsletter distribution list, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data in excess thereof, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this policy.

Use of the e-mail marketing service “CleverReach”

This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The supplier is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service that enables us to organise and analyse the distribution of newsletters. The data you provide (e.g. email address) for the purpose of subscribing to our newsletter will be stored on CleverReach servers in Germany or Ireland.

Sending our newsletters with CleverReach enables us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often various links contained in the newsletter have been clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, we can also analyse 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 analysed by CleverReach, please visit:

The data is processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You may withdraw your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. Withdrawing your consent does not affect the legality of the data processing that has already taken place beforehand.

If you do not want CleverReach to analyse your behaviour, please unsubscribe from the newsletter. To do this, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe as a recipient directly on our website.

The data you provided for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until your removal from the newsletter mailing list and will be deleted both from our servers and the servers of CleverReach when you have unsubscribed from the newsletter. This will not affect any data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members’ area).

In this respect, data processing takes place solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct marketing in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. If you have initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send you an e-mail. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the advertising purpose described above at any time with effect for the future by sending a message to the controller named above. In this regard, the only costs you will incur will be the basic cost of transmission. Upon receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will cease immediately.
