5. Google Analytics

For the purpose of analysing and optimising our websites, we use Google Analytics, which is described below.

For example, we can analyse how many users visit our site, which information is most demanded or how users find the offer. Among other things, we collect data on which website a data subject came from (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. This helps us to make our offers user-friendly and improve them. The data collected in the process is not used to identify individual users personally. The legal basis for this is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR.

If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The responsible party for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). The web analytics service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The server location is usually the USA.

5.1. Scope of processing

Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our websites. The information collected by means of the cookies about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Currently we are using Version 3 of Google Analytics and have activated the anonymization of IP addresses. If we switch to Google Analytics 4 the IP anonymization will also be activated by default. Due to IP anonymization, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

During your website visit, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of “events”. Events can be:

  • Page views
  • First visit to the website
  • Start of session
  • Your “click path”, interaction with the website
  • Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the bottom of the page (90%))
  • Clicks on external links
  • Internal search queries
  • Interaction with videos
  • Seen / clicked ads

Also recorded:

  • Your approximate location (region)
  • Your IP address (in shortened form)
  • Technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g., language setting, screen resolution)
  • Your internet service provider
  • The referrer URL (via which website/ via which advertising medium you came to this website)

5.2. IP anonymization

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization feature. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. There may be exceptions where Google transmits and truncates the full IP address to a server in the United States. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to report on website activity, and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. There is no merger of the Google Analytics transmitted IP address with other Google data.

5.3. Browser plugin

The setting of cookies through your web browser can be prevented. However, some features of our website may be restricted. Likewise, you can prevent the collection of data relating to your website use, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plug-in accessible via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

5.4. Purposes of the processing

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyse the performance of our website.

5.5. Recipients

Recipients of the data are/may be

  • Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (as processor according to Art. 28 DSGVO).
  • Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
  • Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

It cannot be ruled out that US authorities may access the data stored by Google.

5.6. Third country transfer

Insofar as data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not be entitled to any legal remedies against access by authorities.

5.7. Storage period

The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose storage period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

5.8. Legal basis

The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art.6 para.1 p.1 lit. a GDPR.

5.9. Withdrawal

You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by accessing the cookie settings and changing your selection there. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the withdrawal remains unaffected.

Alternatively, you can prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by setting your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to refuse all cookies, you may experience limitations in functionality on this and other websites. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google, by

  • Not giving your consent to the setting of the cookie or
  • downloading and installing the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

For more information on Google Analytics’ terms of use and Google’s privacy policy, please visit https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/de/ and https://policies.google.com/?hl=de.

5.10. Data Processing Agreement

To fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have entered into a Data Processing Agreement with Google.

5.11.

Our website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. It can be used to generate reports that contain statements on the age, gender, and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. An assignment of the data to a specific person is not possible. You can disable this feature at any time.

Google reCaptcha

We use reCaptcha v3 on our websites. reCaptcha is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The responsible entity for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

ReCaptcha serves to prevent abusive automated entries in web forms and thus to protect the technical systems of the hoster.

When you call up one of our web pages in which reCaptcha is integrated, a connection is established to Google’s servers. A reCaptcha cookie is set. Your IP address is transmitted to Google.

In addition, reCaptcha collects the following data by means of “fingerprinting”:

  • browser plugins used
  • cookies set by Google in the last 6 months
  • number of mouse clicks and touches you have made on this screen
  • CSS information for the page you are viewing
  • Javascript objects
  • the date
  • the browser language

You may refuse the use of cookies and fingerprinting by selecting the appropriate technical settings on your browser software, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Insofar as data is processed outside the European Economic Area / the EU, where there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, Google uses standard contractual clauses according to its own information.

Google’s privacy policy and terms of use can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy and here: https://policies.google.com/terms.

The collection and storage of data only takes place after explicit consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. This can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future.

7. Newsletter

7.1. General information

You can subscribe to the newsletter on our website, which we use to inform you monthly about our products, new features and blog posts. The content of the individual newsletter will be briefly described during the registration process. The legal basis for sending the respective newsletter is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO in conjunction with Section 7 (2) No. 3 UWG or the legal permission according to Section 7 (3) UWG.

For the registration to our newsletter, we use the so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter.

Mandatory information for sending the newsletter is only your e-mail address. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter and until withdrawn. We also store your IP address current at the time of registration, the time of registration and confirmation for up to three years after registration (statute of limitations). The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration in case of doubt and, if necessary, to clarify any misuse of your personal data. The legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f GDPR in proving a formerly given consent, see also Art. 7 para. 1 GDPR.

You can withdraw your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the withdrawal by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email or by sending an email to data.protection@nextron-systems.com.

7.2. Newsletter Tracking

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter in order to determine whether and when the newsletter was opened. For this evaluation, the sent e-mails contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels.

For example, we can see whether a newsletter message was opened and which links, if any, were clicked. In addition, we can see whether certain pre-defined actions were performed after opening/clicking (conversion rate).
With the data thus obtained, we create a user profile in order to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. In doing so, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them and infer your personal interests from this. The legal basis for this data processing is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit.a DSGVO.

We can thus recognize, for example, whether you have made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter. Sendinblue also allows us to subdivide (“cluster”) newsletter recipients based on various categories. In doing so, the newsletter recipients can be subdivided by age, gender or place of residence, for example.

In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups. For detailed information on the Sendinblue functions, please refer to the following link: https://de.sendinblue.com/newsletter-software/?rtype=n2go. Information on data protection at Sendinblue can also be found here: https://de.sendinblue.com/datenschutz-uebersicht/.
You may withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. In this case, the withdrawal includes the entire newsletter, as a separate withdrawal of the tracking is unfortunately not technically possible. To do this, simply click the unsubscribe link provided in each e-mail. Your data will then no longer be used for the above purposes.

The information from the tracking is stored as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter.

Moreover, such tracking is not possible if you have deactivated the display of images by default in your e-mail program. In this case, the newsletter will not be fully displayed to you and you may not be able to use all of its features. If you display the images manually, the tracking mentioned above will take place.

8. Contact

If you contact us by e-mail or via our contact forms, the data you provide (e.g., your name and telephone number) will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your request. Legal basis is our legitimate interest to answer you, Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR.

If our contact form requests information that is not required in order to contact you, we have always marked it as optional. This information is provided expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 para 1 lit. a GDPR. Provided that this information relates to communication channels (e.g., e-mail address, telephone number), you also agree that we may contact you via these communication channels in order to respond to your request. We delete the data obtained in this context after the storage is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose. Insofar as statutory storage periods prevent deletion, we restrict the processing.

Data submitted via the contact form, including your contact details, will be stored to process your request or to be available for follow-up questions. A disclosure of this data will not take place without your consent.

Of course, you may withdraw your consent to us at any time with effect for the future. To do so, simply contact us at data.protection@nextron-systems.com by sending an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
