XIII. Push notifications
If you use "Signalize” to activate push notifications for this website, a function of your Internet browser or mobile operating system will be used to provide the notifications. Only anonymous data is stored for sending messages, which cannot be traced back to a specific person. This data is only processed in order to deliver the notifications to which you have subscribed and to configure notification-related settings. We would ask that you consent to us storing this data. The legal basis for processing data in this case is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can opt out of receiving notifications at any time via the settings on your browser or mobile device. Information on how to unsubscribe from push notifications can be found here.
In order to make the content of the push notifications meaningful to you, we use the preferences from an anonymous user profile collected by means of cookies and merge your notification ID with the user profile of the website for the sole purpose of sending personalised messages. Tracking technology is also used for statistical analysis of the notifications on our behalf. This allows us to determine whether a notification has been delivered and whether anyone has clicked on it. The data generated in this way is processed and stored exclusively in Germany on our behalf by etracker GmbH from Hamburg, which provides the Signalize service. It is therefore subject to the strict German and European data protection laws and standards. etracker has been independently audited and certified in this regard and is entitled to bear the ePrivacyseal.
The data processing used to trigger the invitation to the notification service and the statistical analysis of registration or rejection are based on our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, with the purpose of making the notification service user-friendly and effective. The privacy of our visitors is very important to us, so any data that might allow a reference to an individual person, such as the IP address, login or device identifiers, are anonymised as early as possible. A direct reference to a specific person is therefore excluded. The data will not be used in any other way, nor will it be merged with other data or passed to a third party.
You can withdraw consent to the above data processing at any time.
