Web Analytics and Website Optimization

etracker services for analysing usage data are utilised on this website. They use cookies that enable a statistical analysis of the utilisation of this website by its users, as well as a display of usage-related content or advertisement.

The data generated as a result are processed and saved solely in Germany by etracker on our behalf and are thus subject to strict German and European data privacy laws and standards. etracker was independently audited and certified in this regard and was awarded the data privacy quality seal ePrivacyseal.

Data are processed as per the legal provisions of Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) (legitimate interest) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). Our concern in the sense of the EU GDPR (legitimate interest) is the optimisation of our online offering and our website. Since the private sphere of our visitors is important to us, data that may allow conclusions to be made about any specific person, such as IP addresses and login or device IDs, are anonymised or pseudonymised as soon as possible. The data are not used for other purposes, etracker does not merge them with its own or other data, and they are not passed on to third parties.

You can object to the data processing described above at any time, insofar as it is done in a person-related manner.

I object to the processing of my personal data with etracker on this website.


With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, which will send you updates on new features, invitations to events, or valuable tips about your etracker solution via email.

To register for our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after you have registered, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address specified in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store your IP addresses and times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to inform you about possible misuse of your personal data.

The only requirement for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The details of salutation, surname and first name are used exclusively to address you personally. Your chosen language setting will be used to select the appropriate language version of the newsletter, if available. After your confirmation, we will store your data for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter e-mail or by sending a message to the contact details stated in the imprint.

We point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent include so-called web beacons or tracking pixels that represent one-pixel image files. For the evaluations, we link the data mentioned above and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Also in the newsletter received links contain this ID. Thus, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click in these and conclude from how attractive and multi-valued the contents of the newsletter are perceived.

You can object to this tracking at any time by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint. Also, such tracking is not possible if you’ve turned off image viewing by default in your email client. In this case the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all the features. If you display the images manually, the above tracking is done. The information will be stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After logging out, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.

Push Notifications

If you enable push notifications from the Signalize service for this website, a function of your Internet browser or mobile device operating system is used to provide the notifications. For the purpose of sending messages, only anonymous or pseudonymous data are transmitted. Depending on the configuration of the website, these can be:

  • Pseudonymous User ID: a randomly generated value (example: 108bf9a85547edb1108bf9a85547edb1) stored in a tracking cookie ID
  • Pseudonymous digital fingerprints, pseudonymous mobile device codes and where required pseudonymous Cross-Device Identifiers

This data is only processed to deliver the notifications you subscribe to and to make notification-related settings. For the storage of this data, we ask for your consent. The legal basis for data processing in this case is Article 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR. You can object to receiving notifications at any time via the settings of your browser or mobile device operating system. Information about objecting push notifications for each browser can be found here. You object on your mobile device directly on the device in your device settings for the app or wallet card.

In order to make the push notifications relevant for you in terms of content, we use the preferences collected on the basis of a pseudonymous user profile by means of tracking pixels and combine your notification ID with the user profile of the website, solely for the purpose of personalised message delivery. Tracking technology is also used for statistical evaluation of the notifications on our behalf. It allows you to determine whether a notification has been delivered and whether it has been clicked. The resulting data is processed and stored exclusively in Germany by etracker GmbH on our behalf and is therefore subject to the strict German and European data protection laws and standards. etracker has been independently audited and certified in this respect and is entitled to bear the ePrivacyseal.

The data processing for the statistical analysis of the notifications as well as in order to better adapt future notifications to the interests of the recipients is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct marketing in accordance with Article 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR. Since the privacy of our visitors is very important to us, the data that may allow a reference to a single person, such as the IP address, login or device IDs, will be anonymised or pseudonymised as soon as possible. This excludes direct personal redress. No other use or transmission to third parties will take place.

You can object to the data processing described above at any time.

I object to the processing of my personal data with Signalize on this website.

Job Applications

We process personally identifiable information about you for the purpose of your application for employment, to the extent necessary for the decision to establish employment with us. The legal basis is § 26 para. 1 in conjunction with para. 8 sent. 2 BDSG.

Furthermore, we may process personal data about you, as far as this is required to defend against asserted legal claims from the application process against us. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, for example, the legitimate interest is a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Insofar as employment arises between you and us, pursuant to § 26 (1) BDSG we may further process the personal data you have already received for employment purposes if this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for performance or fulfillment of required by a law or collective agreement, an operating or service agreement (collective agreement) and duties of employee representation.

We process data related to your application. This may include general personal information (such as name, address and contact details), details of your qualifications and education, or CVET information, or other information that you provide to us in connection with your application. Incidentally, we can process your publicly available job-related information, such as a profile in professional social media networks.

We may transfer your personal information to companies affiliated with us, to the extent permitted by the purposes and legal basis set forth. Incidentally, personal data are processed on our behalf on the basis of contracts pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, in particular by host providers or providers of applicant management systems.

A transfer to a third country is not intended.

We store your personal information as long as this is necessary to decide on your application. Insofar as an employment relationship between you and us does not come about, we may also continue to store data as far as necessary to defend against possible legal claims. The application documents will be deleted three months after notification of the rejection decision, unless a longer storage due to litigation is required. With your separate consent, we will store your data for up to 12 months from your consent in order to be able to take your application into consideration again, if necessary, for any later eligible positions.

The provision of personal information is not required by law or contract, nor are you required to provide the personal information. However, the provision of personal information is required to enter into a contract of employment with us. This means that unless you provide us with personal data when applying, we will not enter into any employment relationship with you.

There is no automated decision in individual cases within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR, that is, the decision on your application is not based solely on automated processing.
