The website operator is
The website operator takes your privacy very seriously and will treat your personal information confidentially and in accordance with the law.
Keep in mind that data transmission on the internet can generally be subject to security vulnerabilities. Full protection against access by third parties is not possible.
In order to best protect your transmitted data, the website operators use SSL encryption. You can identify any encrypted connections with the prefix “https://” in the page link in the address bar of your browser. Unencrypted pages are identified by “http://”.
All data that you transmit to this website – such as inquiries or logins – can not be read by third parties thanks to SSL encryption.
Access data / server log files
The website operator (or its web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). Access data includes:
Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
The website operator uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a reasonable suspicion of illegal use due to specific indications.
Handling of personal data
Personal information is information that enables a person to be identified, ie information that can be traced back to a person. These include the name, email address or phone number.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the website operator if this is permitted by law or if users consent to the data collection.
When contacting the website operator (for example via contact form or e-mail), the details of the user are stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as in case of follow-up questions.
With our newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.
Information about the newsletter and user consent
With the following information, we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.
Content of the Newsletter
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are authoritative for the consent of the users. In addition, our newsletter contains information from the software engineering industry as well as references to blog contributions, lectures or workshops, our services or online presentations .
Double Opt-In and Logging
Registration for our newsletter is done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. That After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses.
Registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, the changes to your data stored with MailChimp will be logged.
Use of the mail service provider “MailChimp”
The newsletters will be sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletters distribution platform provided by US Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave. NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other information described in these notes, are stored on MailChimp’s servers in the United States. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or to pass them on to third parties.
To sign up for the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address.
Optionally, we ask you to provide your first and last name. This information is only for the personalization of the newsletter. We also ask you optionally to include your date of birth, gender and your industry. We only use this information to adapt the content of the newsletter to the interests of our readers.
Statistical Survey and Analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.
Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our desire nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
Online Call and Data Management
Termination / revocation
You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie. Revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to sending it via MailChimp and the statistical analyzes expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.
You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
