Cookies 

Web tracking 

After your consent, web analyses are used on this site to determine the reach pursuant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, to implement legitimate interests for the effective layout of promotional activities and public relations work. In conjunction with this, the collection of personal data is reduced to a minimum, given that in all cases the IP is anonymized as soon as your IP address is received by the respective web server. The controller does not merge this information with any other data, which would in particular make it possible to identify the user. 

Use of Google Analytics 

This website uses Google Analytics with your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. (“Google”) Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyze the use of our website. As a rule, the information on your use of this website is transferred to a Google server in the United States, where it is stored. However, within the member states of the European Union or other countries that have ratified the convention on the European Economic Area, Google will abbreviate your IP address before doing so. The full IP address is transmitted to a U.S. server of Google only in exceptional cases and it is abbreviated there in those cases. On the servers, your IP address is anonymized and then transferred to a Google server in the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to render additional services related to the use of the website and the Internet to the operator of the website. The IP address transmitted by your browser in conjunction with Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can prevent the storage of cookies by making a pertinent adjustment to your browser software. Moreover, you can prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie that is related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google, by deactivating it using the following link

In addition, you can deactivate the use of Google Analytics at any time via the Consent Manager

E-mail newsletter 

You can register to receive a free newsletter. We use a double opt-in process for sending the newsletter. That means we will only send you the newsletter by e-mail when you have provided your express consent stating that we, or an affiliate of the diconium Group, should activate the newsletter service. Once you have registered, we will send a notification e-mail to the address you provided and request that you confirm your newsletter registration by clicking on one of the links contained in the e-mail. 

At all times, and with effect for the future, you can object to the use of your personal data for e-mail advertising purposes. It is sufficient to send an e-mail to newsletter@diconium.com or to one of the addresses provided below. You will also find an “unsubscribe” link in every newsletter. Your revocation will not result in any additional costs other than those incurred through standard transmission costs. 

The processing of your data occurs in accordance with your consent as per Art. 6, Sec. 1 letter a) GDPR for purposes of mailing the newsletter. As long as there are no conflicting interests on your part, your personal data will be deleted if you do not confirm receipt of the newsletter or if you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Conflicting interests on your part are, in particular, the exercising of a right to object to advertising. Your personalized data is collected for the implementation of your objection to receive advertising in order to adhere to this request in future (Art. 6 Sec. 1 letter c GDPR). A usage for any other purposes is not processed. 
 
The mailing of the e-mail newsletter is processed by the technical service provider HubSpot Inc., 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141, USA (“HubSpot”). We forward the data you’ve provide to us upon newsletter registration to HubSpot. The data you have entered for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g., the e-mail address) is stored on the servers of HubSpot in Germany. We are obligated to inform you that – within the scope of support and maintenance services – your data may be processed by HubSpot Inc. in the United States of America. The USA does not represent a secure third-party country. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that your data will be used for other purposes without your knowledge, and that it will not be possible for you to exercise your rights as an affected party. In particular, the use of your data by law enforcement and intelligence agencies cannot be ruled out. By providing your consent for these services, you confirm that you are aware of these risks and that you accept these (Art. 49, Sec. 1 letter a GDPR). 
 
On our behalf, HubSpot uses the provided data for mailing the newsletter as well as for conducting statistical analyses. For the analyses, the e-mails sent contain web beacons or tracking pixels that represent one-pixel image files that are stored on our website. This enables us to determine whether or not a newsletter mail has been opened and which links, if any, were accessed. With the help of conversion tracking, it can furthermore be analyzed whether or not a predefined action (e.g., product purchase on our website) occurred after the newsletter link was clicked. Moreover, technical information is recorded (e.g., time of access, IP address, type of browser, and operating system). 

Using this information, we create a user profile of your activities on our website so that we can better understand your interests and better customize our information.

HubSpot uses cookies, which are small text files that are stored locally in your browser’s cache on your device. Cookies allow us to analyze your usage of the website. The recorded information (e.g., IP address, the geographical location, type of browser, duration of visit, and pages visited) is analyzed by HubSpot per our order so that we can generate reports about the visit and the visited pages.

HubSpot manages the conversion tracking function.

We use this information to provide you with relevant content (in accordance with your interests) or to further tailor our offers towards these interests. 

Furthermore, HubSpot compiles a “score value” about you in order to qualify you as a potential lead and to determine possible sales opportunities and probabilities for success. 

Your data is only forwarded to HubSpot if you have provided your consent within the scope of newsletter registration or through consent management (Art. 6, Sec. 1 letter a) GDPR).
