We are committed to providing you with a clear and comprehensive overview of the technologies we use to optimize your experience with our services while ensuring the protection of your personal data. Please take the time to read the following sections carefully to gain a better understanding of our privacy practices in the context of our various services.

a.       Visiting our websites

When you visit our website, your browser will contact our web server to find the page you want to visit. In this context, personal data such as your IP address is transmitted to us by your browser (i.e. HTTP/S requests). The connection data is processed by our web server to enable access to and display of our website.

Our web server automatically saves a log of the pages you visit (so-called "log files" or "session logs"). We use these log files to ensure the security of our website, in particular to prevent unauthorized access to our website and to enable us to exercise our legal rights and obligations in relation to such unauthorized interventions.

We also analyze the session logs in order to optimize our website. The analysis as such takes place in an anonymous form ensuring that the results do not allow any inference to your identity. When you access one of our websites, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar data. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the website content requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet.

We forward the log files to our internal and external recipients, including the competent authorities, if this is necessary for the exercise of our legal rights regarding unauthorized access to our website.

Our websites and with all subpages are operated via servers of the company HubSpot, Inc. or HubSpot, Ltd., depending on your geographical region, which acts on our behalf (Art. 28 GDPR) as a service provider for hosting services.

Without the processing of the aforementioned personal data, you will not be able to view or visit our website. In addition, individual services may not be available or may be restricted.

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

  • Multilingualism

We use an essential cookie called "Weglot" to enable the multilingual feature on our website. This cookie is required to ensure that users can view the content of our website in their preferred language. Weglot allows us to remember users' language preferences and ensure that they can view the website in their preferred language.

The processing of your data by Weglot is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR, as it is necessary to provide the language settings requested by the users. The use of Weglot as an essential cookie does not impact the collection of personal data or user behavior relevant to analysis or marketing purposes. It solely serves to enhance the user-friendliness of our website by offering the option to display the website in different languages.

Please note that blocking or deleting this cookie can significantly impair the functionality of our website, as the multilingual function will no longer work properly.

b.      Google Analytics 4 and Google Tag Manager

We use the web analytics service Google Analytics 4 from Google Ireland Limited ("Google") on our websites and in the provision of our services to better understand and continuously improve the use of our website. Google Analytics 4 uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Our websites and services use Google Analytics 4 with activated IP anonymization. This means that your IP address 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 transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics 4 will not be merged with other Google data.

We also use Google Tag Manager, which is also provided by Google. Google Tag Manager enables us to centrally manage website tags and embed them in our website. The tags can contain various tracking tools, including Google Analytics 4. By using Google Tag Manager, we can manage our websites and services more efficiently and control data processing centrally.

The use of Google Analytics 4 and Google Tag Manager is based on our legitimate interest in analyzing and optimizing our website and providing our users with relevant content. You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. 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 also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

To prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics on the websites and, you can alternatively use our opt-out procedure. This procedure acts as a declaration of objection and blocks further data processing by Google Analytics at a technical level.

Please note that the service not only deletes cookies that have already been set, but also completely removes the JavaScript that is responsible for the integration of tracking systems such as Google Analytics. As a result, Google Analytics is no longer integrated into our website and no additional do-not-track cookie is required. After the opt-out, the service will no longer be activated.

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options can be found in Google's privacy policy:

Please note that Google services are used on our websites to improve the website experience and to optimize our service based on analyzed usage data.
