We use CleverReach to send newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. This service allows us to organize and analyze the newsletter dispatch. The data you enter to receive the newsletter, such as your email address, is stored on CleverReach's servers. Server locations are Germany and Ireland, respectively.

The newsletter dispatch with CleverReach allows us to analyze the behavior of the newsletter recipient. The analysis reveals, among other things, how many recipients have opened their newsletter and with what frequency links in the newsletter were clicked. CleverReach supports conversion tracking to analyze whether a previously defined action, such as a product purchase, occurs after clicking a link. Details on the data analysis by CleverReach can be found here.

Data entered to set up the subscription will be deleted from our servers and the servers of CleverReach in the event of unsubscription. If this data has been transmitted to us for other purposes and elsewhere, it will still remain with us. For details on CleverReach's privacy policy, please see here.

Commissioned processing: To fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have concluded a contract with CleverReach for commissioned processing.

Embedded Videos


We use the provider Vimeo, operated by Vimeo, Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011 (“vimeo”), among others, to integrate videos into our website.

When you access videos on our website via vimeo, a connection is established to the vimeo servers in the USA. This transmits certain information to vimeo, regardless of whether you have a vimeo account or not. This can be, for example:

  • Your IP address
  • Your browser information, e.g., language settings
  • Cookie information about vimeo cookies that have already been set
  • Information about the website from which you are accessing vimeo’s site

vimeo stores cookies on your terminal device. In particular, the tracker Google Analytics. This is vimeo's own tracking, to which we have no access. You can prevent tracking by Google Analytics by using Google's deactivation tools for some Internet browsers. Users can also prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to their use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here.

Insofar as vimeo offers certain additional functions, such as rating or sharing videos, these functions are provided exclusively by vimeo and the respective third-party providers. You should carefully review their privacy policies before using the individual functions. We do not obtain any knowledge of the content of the data collected by vimeo or third-party providers and have no influence on its use. Through this, it is transmitted to the vimeo server, which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of vimeo, vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from vimeo.

vimeo processes personal data in the US and relies, among other things, on the so-called standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. For more information, see here in section “14.2 GDPR (EEA Users)”.

vimeo may share your data with third parties. These are, for example, group-affiliated companies, business partners, and advertising partners, who, in turn, use tracking technologies on the vimeo website. For more information on data processing and privacy notices by vimeo, please visit and the Cookie Policy at

We use vimeo to be able to show you corresponding videos directly via our website. Justification is provided by Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, insofar as you have given us your consent in advance. You can revoke this at any time with effect for the future. In this case, you can no longer use the vimeo offer.


We use the provider YouTube, among others, to integrate videos. YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, headquartered at 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google LLC. with headquarters at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

When you access the website on which the YouTube plugin is embedded, a connection to the YouTube servers is established for video display. This transmits to the YouTube server which of our Internet pages you have visited.

YouTube is loaded only with your consent, which means that no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube if you have not given consent. Only with your consent can the videos be played, and data is sent to the YouTube server, which of our Internet pages you have visited.

If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as by clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account and other user accounts of YouTube LLC and Google LLC, before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies of the companies.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by YouTube, please refer to the privacy policy. You will also find more information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy: Google also processes your personal data in the USA.
