When using the website https://inu.de for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,

We process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:

  • Evaluation of system security and stability and
  • for other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

We also use cookies and analysis services when you visit our website. Here we differentiate between technically necessary cookies and those used for statistical recording and optimization. The latter are only used if you have given your consent. You will find more detailed explanations in sections 4 and 5 of this privacy policy.

Our website is not hosted by us, but by a service provider who processes the aforementioned data on our behalf in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

  1. When registering for our newsletter

On our website, you have the option of subscribing to a free newsletter, which we use to inform you about new products and special promotions. When you register for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address and a language selection. The provision of further data is voluntary and is used to address you personally and to send you more targeted information.

The following data is also collected during registration:

  • IP address of the calling computer
  • Date and time of registration

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have expressly confirmed to us that you consent to the sending of newsletters. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters by clicking on a corresponding link.

By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent to the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Our e-mail newsletters are sent via the technical service provider rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße 21, 79106 Freiburg (“rapidmail”). rapidmail uses the personal data provided by you to send and statistically analyze the newsletter on our behalf. The emails sent contain so-called tracking pixels for evaluation purposes. This allows us to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. Optionally, links in the email can be set as tracking links with which your clicks can be counted. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

If you wish to object to data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.

We have concluded an order processing agreement with rapidmail in which we oblige rapidmail to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.

For more information, please refer to rapidmail’s data security information at: https://www.rapidmail.de/datensicherheit. For more information on the analysis functions of rapidmail, please refer to the following link: https://www.rapidmail.de/wissen-und-hilfe.

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

The purpose of collecting the e-mail address is to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the email address used and to personalize the newsletter.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. After you have unsubscribed, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

You can unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can also send your unsubscribe request at any time to [email protected] by e-mail.

This also makes it possible to withdraw consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.

  1. Google Analytics
  • This website uses Google Analytics for web analysis. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), a company incorporated and operated under Irish law (registration number: 368047) with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” (see 4.) which are stored on your computer and which enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server, possibly in the USA, and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google during transmission and storage on a Google server in the USA within member states of the European Union or in other states party to 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. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide 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 will not be merged with other Google data.
  • You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. 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: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
  • This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you is personally identifiable, it is immediately excluded and the personal data is deleted immediately.
  • We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.

  1. Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
  • We use Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising material (so-called Google Adwords). We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the advertising campaign data. We are interested in showing you advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
  • These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies generally lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
  • These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Adwords customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can recognize which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
  • Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: Through the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out your IP address and store it.
  • You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular suppressing third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving ads from third-party providers; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby these settings will be deleted if you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/ choices, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
  • The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. Further information on data protection at Google can be found here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/ sitestats/en.html. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
  1. Remarketing

In addition to Adwords Conversion, we use the Google Remarketing application. This is a procedure with which we would like to address you again. This application enables our advertisements to be displayed to you when you continue to use the Internet after visiting our website. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used by Google to record and evaluate your usage behavior when you visit various websites. This enables Google to determine your previous visit to our website. According to its own statements, Google does not merge the data collected in the context of remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymization is used in remarketing.

  1. Google Tag Manager
  • We use the Google Tag Manager of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Tag Manager is used to manage website tags via an interface and enables us to control the precise integration of services on our website.
  • This allows us to flexibly integrate additional services in order to evaluate user access to our website.
  • The use of Google Tag Manager is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. DS-GVO.
  • We intend to transfer personal data to third countries outside the European Economic Area, in particular the USA. The data transfer to the USA is carried out in accordance with Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR on the basis of the adequacy decision of the European Commission. The US companies involved and/or their US subcontractors are certified in accordance with the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (EU-U.S. DPF).
  • In cases where there is no adequacy decision by the European Commission (including US companies that are not certified under the EU-U.S. DPF), we have agreed other appropriate safeguards with the recipients of the data within the meaning of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR have been agreed. Unless otherwise stated, these are standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission in accordance with Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of June 4, 2021. You can view a copy of these standard contractual clauses at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/HTML/?uri=CELEX:32021D 0914&from=DE.
  • In addition, prior to such a third country transfer, we will obtain your consent in accordance with Art. 49 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a. GDPR, which you give via the consent in the Consent Manager (or other forms, registrations, etc.). We would like to point out that in the case of third country transfers, there may be risks that are unknown in detail (e.g. data processing by security authorities in the third country, the exact scope and consequences of which for you we do not know, over which we have no influence and of which you may not become aware).
  • The specific storage period of the processed data cannot be influenced by us, but is determined by Google Ireland Limited. Further information can be found in the privacy policy for Google Tag Manager: https://marketingplatform. google.com/about/ analytics/tag-manager/use-policy/.
