  • Automated data collection and processing on our website

    We use various technologies on our website with which we and third parties engaged by us can recognize you when you use our website and, under certain circumstances, track you over several visits. We will inform you about this in this section.

    In essence, we want to be able to distinguish between your access (via your system) and access by other users so that we can ensure the functionality of the website and carry out evaluations and personalization. We do not want to draw conclusions about your identity, even if we can, insofar, as we or third parties engaged by us can identify you by combining this with registration data. Even without registration data, however, the technologies used are designed in such a way that you are recognized as an individual visitor each time you access a page, for example by our server (or the servers of third parties) assigning you or your browser a specific identification number (so-called "cookie").

    We use such technologies on our website and allow certain third parties to do the same. However, depending on the purpose of these technologies, we may ask for your consent before using them. You can also adjust your current cookie settings on the homepage at any time. You can program your browser to block or deceive certain cookies or alternative technologies or delete existing cookies. You can also add software to your browser that blocks tracking by certain third parties. Further information on this can be found on the help pages of your browser (usually under the heading "Data protection") or on the websites of the third parties.

    A distinction is made between the following cookies (technologies with similar functions such as fingerprinting are also included here):

    We use both Session and Persistent Cookies for the purposes set out below:

    • Necessary / Essential Cookies

      Type: Session Cookies

      Administered by: Us

      Purpose: These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the website. Without these cookies, the website will not function properly. We need these cookies to remember your cookies preferences.

    • Functionality Cookies

      These cookies allow the website to remember the choices you have made in the past. We currently use offers from the following service providers (insofar as they use data from you, or cookies set by you):

      • Calendly cookies

        Type: Temporary cookies; 30 Minutes / 365 days

    • Performance cookies

      To optimize our website and corresponding offers and to better tailor them to the needs of users, we use cookies to record and analyze the use of our website, possibly even beyond the session. We do this by using third-party analysis services. We have listed these below. Before we use such cookies, we ask for your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time via the cookie settings. We currently use offers from the following service providers and advertising contract partners (insofar as they use data from you, or cookies set by you for advertising control):

      • Google Analytics: Google Ireland Limited (based in Ireland) is the provider of the "Google Analytics" service and acts as our processor. Google Ireland Limited relies on Google LLC (based in the USA) as its processor (both "Google"). Google uses performance cookies (see above) to track the behavior of visitors to our website (duration, frequency of pages accessed, geographical origin of access, etc.) and compiles reports for us on the use of our website on this basis. We have configured the service so that the IP addresses of visitors are truncated by Google in Europe before being forwarded to the USA and therefore cannot be traced back. We have switched the settings "Data transfer" off and "Signals" on. Although we can assume that the information, we share with Google is not personal data for Google, it is possible that Google can use this data for its own purposes to draw conclusions about the identity of visitors, create personal profiles and also ensure that Google links this data to the Google accounts of people who have consented to personalized advertising. If you agree to the use of Google Analytics, you explicitly consent to such processing, which also includes the transfer of personal data (usage data for the website and app, device information and individual IDs) to the USA and other countries. You can find information on Google Analytics data protection here and if you have a Google account, you can find further information on processing by Google here.

GD Next GmbH does not sell user and/or anonymous data to any third party.
