Our website uses so-called cookies, small text files that are stored on your device’s browser, which are harmless. We use cookies to make your experience user-friendly.

Google Analytics

We use the functions of the Google Analytics service provided by Google Inc., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by these cookies about the online use of the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google uses this information, within our agreement according to Art.28 of the GDPR, to evaluate users’ use of our online offerings, to compile reports on the activities within these online offerings, and to provide us with other services related to online offerings and internet usage. In these cases, pseudonymous usage profiles of users can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address submitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google.

This data processing is based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit f GDPR), which is the improvement of our online offer using the collected anonymous data.

Content of the Newsletters

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “Newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or with legal permission. If the contents of a Newsletter are accurately described, they are relevant for the consent of the users. Our newsletters mainly contain information on current projects and contributions on the topic of digital media.


Double-Opt-In and Logging

The registration for our newsletter requires a so-called double opt-in procedure. 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 Data

Entering your e-mail address is all that is needed to subscribe to the Newsletter.

Statistical Surveys and Analyses

The Newsletters contain so-called counting pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation on the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. The embedded pixel lets us know if and when an email was opened. Furthermore, via the Newsletter tracking, which links in the e-mail were accessed by the recipient can be ascertained.

For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual Newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavour nor that of eyepin to observe individual users. These evaluations serve us in recognizing the reading habits of our users, and allow us to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to their interests. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.

eyepin Website

The Newsletters contain a link to eyepin‘s website. In this context, we must point out that cookies are used on eyepin’s website and thus personal data processed by eyepin, its partners and service providers, can be used by Google Analytics, for example. We have no influence on this data collection. Further information can be found in eyepin‘s privacy policy.
