Analysis tools and tools from third-party providers

Web analysis - Plausible

We use the analytics service Plausible on our website. The provider is Plausible Insights OÜ Västriku tn 2, 50403, Tartu, Estonia. Plausible is used to analyze the usage behavior of our website. 
The privacy of our website visitors is important to us, which is why we do not track individuals. We run the Plausible Analytics script to collect some anonymous usage data for statistical purposes. Only general data such as pages viewed, browsers and devices used and origin are analyzed. The data is not used in any other way, merged with other data or passed on to third parties. In many cases there is no personal reference. However, if a personal reference should arise, this processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO and § 25 para. 2 TTDSG on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes.


This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newsletters. The provider is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
MailChimp is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. If you enter data for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter (e.g. e-mail address), this data is stored on MailChimp's servers in the USA. MailChimp is certified in accordance with the "EU-Swiss Privacy Shield". Data is transferred in accordance with the EU standard contractual clauses. In addition, we have concluded an additional agreement ("Data Processing Addendum") with Mailchimp to ensure the most comprehensive data protection possible. With the help of MailChimp, we can analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the email (known as a web beacon) connects to MailChimp's servers in the USA. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. Technical information is also collected (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients. If you do not wish to be analyzed by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this purpose in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website. The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGV). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation. The data you have provided to us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of MailChimp 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. For more information, please refer to MailChimp's privacy policy at: [external site]. Conclusion of a data processing agreement. We have concluded a so-called "Data Processing Agreement" with MailChimp, in which we oblige MailChimp to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties. This agreement can be viewed at the following link: [external page].
