This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()”. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that personal references can be ruled out. If the data collected about you can be linked to a person, this will be excluded immediately and the personal data will be deleted immediately. 

 (e)  Data transfer to USA

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google relies on the standard contractual clauses for data transfers. 

The European Commission (EC) has approved the use of standard contractual clauses as a means of ensuring adequate protection when transferring data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By using standard contractual clauses in a contract between the data transmitters, personal data will be considered protected when transferred from the EEA or the United Kingdom to countries that are not covered by an adequacy decision. Se more information about the EC standard contractual clauses here https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc

Google offers these standard contractual clauses to customers who use Google’s business services, including Google Ads and Google Analytics. For detailed information on Google’s use of the standard contractual clauses please visit https://business.safety.google/compliance/?hl=de 

(a) Registration for newsletter subscription

High-Tech SeedLab by AtomLeap GmbH informs its current and future program participants as well as business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about upcoming program offers. The newsletter can basically only be received by the person concerned if the person concerned has a valid email address and if the person concerned registers for the newsletter dispatch. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered for the first time by a person concerned for the purpose of receiving the newsletter using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorized the receipt of the newsletter as a person concerned. 

(b) Use of IP address

When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a person concerned at a later date and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the person responsible for processing. 

(c) Unsubscribing from the newsletter

The personal data collected (e-mail) in the course of registering for the newsletter is used exclusively for sending our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as might be the case if there are changes to the newsletter offer or if technical conditions change. The personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter service, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, a corresponding link is included in every newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller in another way.

(d) Newsletter tracking

The newsletter of High-Tech SeedLab by AtomLeap GmbH contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. By means of the embedded pixel-code, High-Tech SeedLab by AtomLeap GmbH can identify whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links in the e-mail were called up by the person concerned.  

(e) Revoking consent

Such personal data collected via the embedded pixel-code in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent submitted in this regard via the double opt-in procedure at any time. After revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the data controller. A cancellation of the receipt of the newsletter is automatically interpreted by High-Tech SeedLab by AtomLeap GmbH as a revocation.

The High-Tech SeedLab by AtomLeap GmbH website contains a contact form for direct communication with us. If a data subject contacts us via the contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the person concerned. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.

Each time you use the internet, your browser is transmitting certain information which is stored in so-called log files.

Your log files are stored by our website host Cloudflare, Inc. to determine service disruptions and for security reasons (e.g., to investigate attack attempts). Please read more information about Cloudflare in the next section ‘13. Content Delivery Network’.

Log files which need to be maintained for evidence purposes are excluded from deletion until the respective incident is resolved and may, on a case-by-case basis, be passed on to investigating authorities.

Log files are also used for analysis purposes (without the IP address or without the complete IP address) see section ‘4 (c) Self-promotion and promotion by others as well as market research and reach analysis done within the scope statutorily permitted or based on consent’.

(a) Information about content delivery network Cloudflare, Inc
