Data collection and processing

Every access to our homepage and every retrieval of a file stored on the homepage is logged. The storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. To be logged:

  • Date and time of retrieval
  • Name of the retrieved file path
  • Amount of data transferred, browser type and version
  • Pages visited and requesting domain
  • Message on successful retrieval
  • Name of the Internet service provider

In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged. However, since this website uses IP anonymization, your IP address is stored in a shortened form so that it is no longer possible to identify a person afterwards. Insofar as personal data (such as name, address, e-mail address, etc.) is collected on this website, this is done in voluntary agreement with you and in your knowledge. The personal data you may provide when contacting us will be collected, used and stored by us in accordance with the provisions of the Telemedia Act and the Federal Data Protection Act. You can revoke this at any time.

Use and disclosure of personal data

If you have provided us with personal data, we will use it in accordance with German data protection regulations only to respond to your inquiries, to establish, process and terminate contracts concluded with you and for technical administration. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or otherwise transferred if this is necessary for the purpose of fulfilling the contract – in particular the transfer of order data to service providers and/or suppliers etc., if this is necessary for billing purposes or if you have given your prior consent. You have the right to revoke a given consent with effect for the future at any time. You have the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about you. In addition, you have a right to correction, blocking and deletion of this personal data in accordance with the statutory provisions.


When contacting the provider (for example, via contact form or e-mail), the user’s information is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.


With the edicos newsletter we inform you about us and our offers. If you would like to receive the edicos newsletter, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the edicos newsletter.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that the newsletter is sent out in a consensual manner. In the course of this, the potential recipient can be added to a distribution list. Subsequently, the user receives a confirmation e-mail to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner. Only if the confirmation is received, the address will be actively added to the distribution list. When you subscribe to the edicos newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of subscription. This storage serves solely as evidence in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized person.

Apart from the collected data for abuse proof, we use your data exclusively for sending the edicos newsletters.

Newsletter2Go is used as the newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling your data and using it for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a German certified provider, which was selected according to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the edicos newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The revocation can also be made via your profile area or by sending a message to the contact options above.

Data protection measures are always subject to technical innovations. Therefore, we ask you to inform yourself about our data protection measures at regular intervals by consulting our data protection declaration.

Storage duration

We save your data.

  • if you have consented to the processing, until you withdraw your consent at most, in which case the data will be deleted
  • if we need the data to perform a contract, at most for as long as the contractual relationship with you exists or statutory retention periods run,
  • if we use the data on the basis of a legitimate interest, at most for as long as your interest in deletion or anonymization does not prevail.

Storage of anonymized data/cookies

On this website, usage data is collected and stored in anonymized form. Therefore so-called “cookies” can be used. These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. However, these collect and store the data exclusively in pseudonymous form. They are not used to identify you personally and are not merged with data about the bearer of the pseudonym. We use this information to determine the attractiveness of our website and to continuously improve its content. Most browsers are preset to accept cookies automatically. However, you can disable the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you before cookies are stored.

Integration of third-party services and content

It may happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they can not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. We strive to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.

Google Analytics

This offer uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. („Google“). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on users’ computers, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there.

In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, Google will shorten the user’s IP address beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website by users, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly. However, this offer informs users that in this case they may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. Users can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

Regarding the discussion about the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” and therefore IP addresses are only processed in a shortened form to exclude a direct personal reference.By clicking on this link, you can disable tracking by Google Analytics on this website

Use of social media plug-ins

We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and XING. We use the 2-click solution for this. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of these plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in via the corresponding logo under the heading “Follow us”. Only if you click on one of the plug-ins, personal data will be transmitted. By activating the plug-in, data is automatically transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). We have neither influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes as well as the storage periods. Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the logo.

When you activate a plug-in, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our online offer. In addition, the aforementioned personal data that is collected during an informational use of this website is transmitted, whereby in the case of Facebook, according to the provider in Germany, only an anonymized IP is collected. This occurs regardless of whether you have an account with this plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, this data is directly assigned to your account. If you click the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and shares this publicly with your contacts. If you do not want the assignment to your profile with the plug-in provider, you must log out before activating the button.

The plug-in provider stores this data as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of tailored advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers, which are communicated below. There you will also receive further information about your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.
