The use of the website of Riege Software International GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Riege") is generally possible without providing personal data. However, if you wish to use services of Riege, the processing of personal data may be required.

1. Collection, processing and use of personal data

Personal information is all information about your identity, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number. This data will only be saved if you provide it to Riege. For example, if you subscribe to the newsletter.

We collect, process and use this data in compliance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR). We take state of the art technical and organizational measures according to Art. 32 para. 1 GDPR in order to protect your data against unauthorized access by third parties. In addition, the data is protected against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss and destruction. The security measures are regularly reviewed and improved in line with technological progress.

2. Collection and processing of log data

When visiting our web pages and downloading files, we collect log information (IP address, date and time of retrieval, URL of the web page accessed, browser type, operating system, amount of data loaded, and status of the transfer) about these actions on the web server. Your web browser automatically transmits this information to the web server. These data is partly personal. But we cannot match it against a person and we will not merge it with other sources.

The collection of these data is based on our legitimate interest (Article 6 paragraph 1f GDPR) for the operational safety of this website, geolocation (see section below), for statistical purposes and to provide necessary information to law enforcement authorities in case of cyberattacks. The data will be deleted after 30 days.

This website is stored on the servers of DigitalOcean, 101 Avenue of the Americas 10th Floor, New York, NY 10013, USA, https://www.digitalocean.com

We have concluded a so-called agreement on commissioned data processing with the provider. The website is operated in the Netherlands.

4. Use of Cookies

Cookies are data records that are sent by the web server to the user's web browser and stored there for later retrieval. You can decide for yourself whether cookies can be collected by setting your browser in such a way that you are informed before saving a cookie and that you only save it if you explicitly accept it. We use cookies only for the purpose of obtaining information about the use of our website and for statistical purposes. The cookie records do not contain any personal information. A combination with any personal data provided by you does not take place.

5. Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

This website makes use of the "Google Analytics" service to analyze website usage of users. The service uses "cookies" - text files stored on your device. These are cookies from Google itself (Google Analytics cookies) and so-called third-party cookies (DoubleClick cookies). The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to and stored on servers of Google, Inc. in the United States.

On this website IP anonymization is enabled. The IP address of users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. On our behalf, Google uses the information collected to compile an analysis of website usage and website activity, and provides services related to internet usage.

You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your device by activating the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all features of this website without restriction if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google, Inc. and to be used by Google, Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

The processing of your data is of our legitimate interest on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR. The legitimate interest results from the purposeful control of our website.

6. Use of Remarketing- oder "similar audiences" function of Google Inc.

We use the Remarketing or "similar audiences" feature on our website - feature of Google, Inc. ("Google"). By means of this function we can address the visitors of our website purposefully with advertisement. Visitors to our website will receive personalized, interest-based ads when they visit other sites on the Google Display Network.

In order to carry out the analysis of the website usage, which forms the basis for the creation of interest-related advertisements, Google uses so-called cookies. Cookies are used to record website visits and anonymised data on the use of the website. There is no personal data of visitors stored on the website. If you visit another website on the Google Display Network, you will see ads that are likely to include previously viewed product and information areas.

7. Use of Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We use the Google AdWords online advertising program and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie will be placed on your system. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, contain no personal data and are thus not used for personal identification.

If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through the websites of advertisers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. It tells customers the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page.

We do not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software (deactivation option). For instructions, see the link: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en. Alternatively, you may disable the use of third-party cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative deactivation page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the opt-out information listed there. In both cases, they will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. For more information and Google's privacy policy, please visit: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

These functions are operated by: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA, https://www.google.com.

10. Data Protection in Emails

Our email servers offer so-called opportunistic encryption. Encryption is only guaranteed on the transmission path if all involved systems allow encryption of emails. It is therefore not in the sphere of influence of Riege, whether the content of a message is encrypted.

We also use security software that can reject the message or filter it based on criteria (virus scanner and SPAM filters).

The newsletters we send contain so-called counting pixels. These are miniature graphics that are generated individually for each recipient and which are embedded in the emails. This allows us to be notified upon opening of the email and about links accessed. This allows us to perform statistical evaluations on the success of our newsletter campaign. Our goal with the obtained and stored personal data is to optimize our newsletter distribution and to be able to adapt the newsletters to the interests of the recipient.
