- Collecting data
Each time our website is visited, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the computer accessing it. Based on our legitimate interest, we collect the following data (art. 6(1)(f) of GDPR): The visited website, time of access, amount of sent data, browser used, operation system used, IP address. These data are recorded in an anonymous form.
By changing the settings of your browser, you can deactivate or restrict data transfer and delete cookies that have already been saved. Deactivating cookies for our website may result in restrictions on the use of its functions.
- Google Analytics
Your IP address is shortened in the member states of the EU, the European Economic Area and other countries that are parties to the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transferred without shortening to the Google server in the USA and then shortened there. Thanks to this shortening personal reference to your IP address does not occur. The IP address transmitted by your browser will not be merged with any other data held by Google. In accordance with the terms of the agreement on the processing of data about you, which we concluded with Google Inc. as the operator of the website, Google Inc. will use the collected information for the purpose of analysing your use of the website and website activity and providing services relating to Internet usage.
In addition, you may use the browser plug-in to preventGoogle Inc. from receiving and using the information collected by the cookies (including your IP address). The below link directs you to an appropriate opt-outplug-in.

8.1 General information
With the help of the following guidelines, we inform you about the content of our newsletter as well as about the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures and about your rights to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the procedures described. Newsletter content: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter referred to as “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipient or with legal consent. If the newsletter content is described in detail in the registration process, it is decisive for the user’s consent. In addition, our newsletters contain information about our services and about us.
Double option and recording: Registration for our newsletter takes place in the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail with which you will be asked to confirm your registration.
This confirmation is necessary because nobody can register using someone else’s e-mail address. Registration for the newsletter is recorded in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes recording the time of registration and confirmation and the IP address. Changes to the data stored with the mailing service provider are also recorded. To subscribe to the newsletter, you just need to enter your e-mail address. Optionally, you will be asked to provide your name and surname in the newsletter in order to enable us to address you in person. Newsletter distribution and related performance measurement will be based on recipient consent pursuant to art. 6(1)(a), art. 7 of GDPR in connection with § 7(2)(3) of UWG (Act on protection against unfair competition), or, if the consent is not required, based on our legitimate interest regarding direct marketing pursuant to art. 6(1)(f) of GDPR in connection with § 7(3) of UWG. The registration procedure is registered based on our legitimate interest pursuant to art. 6(1)(f) of GDPR. We aim at using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of the user, and also allows us to provide evidence of consent. You can revoke your consent to receive our newsletter at any time by withdrawing it. A link to unsubscribe from the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.
We may retain e-mail addresses withdrawn from the subscription for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we remove them so that we can prove your prior consent.
The processing of such data is limited to the purpose of defence against any claims. An individual request for data removal shall be possible at any time provided that the prior existence of the consent is confirmed at the same time.
8.3. Newsletter performance level
The newsletter contains the so-called “webbeacon”, i.e. a pixel-size file that is downloaded from our server when you open the newsletter or, if we use a mailing service provider, from its server. This access first collects technical information such as information about your browser and system, as well as your IP address and the time of the access. This information is used to technically improve services on the basis of technical data or target groups and their behaviour during reading on the basis of accessed locations (which can be identified by IP address) or access times. Statistical research also includes determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked on. For technical reasons, this information may be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, neither we nor the mailing service provider (if any) aim at observing individual users. We use evaluations much more to recognize our users’ habits during reading and customize our content for them or send other content according to the interests of our users. Unfortunately, it is not possible to individually cancel performance measurement. In this case you need to unsubscribe from the newsletter.
