> Who receives mailings from STEMMER IMAGING?
STEMMER IMAGING uses Pardot to send out regular mailings with information on important news, products, services and events. This service is provided by Salesforce UK Ltd., village 9, 1 floor 26 Salesforce Tower 110 Bishopsgate, London, UK, EC2N 4AY.
Pardot is a service which organises and analyses the distribution of marketing mailings. Data provided by you to receive mailings (e.g. your e-mail address) will be stored on Pardot servers in the USA. Pardot is certified according to the "EU-US Privacy Shield". The "Privacy-Shield" is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA, which is intended to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
We use Pardot to analyse our campaigns. Technical information is also collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). Data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para.1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing. For this purpose, we provide a link in every e-mail. The legality of any data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
We use the double opt-in procedure to send mailings when subscribing via our website. This means, we will not send you mailings unless you have expressly authorised us (by clicking the link included in an e-mail) to activate the service. When subscribing for mailings, we store the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider, as well as date and time of registration and confirmation. The changes to your data stored are also logged. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves the legal protection of the data controller. In order to adapt our mailings to individual reader preferences, we use customary technologies such as cookies or specially prepared graphic files (tracking pixels).
On the basis of your given consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), we will regularly send you information by e-mail to your registered address.
Mailing subscriptions can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of each mailing or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org without any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. The data will only be processed as long as the corresponding consent is available. The data will then be deleted.
2.2 General data on usage which is personally identifiable (automatically collected usage data)
> How does STEMMER IMAGING collect usage data?

This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and the like. In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:
- Ensuring a trouble-free connection to the website,
- Ensuring the smooth use of our website,
- Evaluation of system safety and stability as well as
- for other administrative purposes.
We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person or to create a profile. Information of this kind is evaluated statistically by us if necessary, however, in order to optimise our Internet performance and the technology behind it. Data stored in log files will be deleted after 30 days at the latest. Data collection for the provision of the website and data storage in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the website user.
Processing takes place on the basis of our justified interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

4. SOCIAL PLUGINS/ SHARIFF
So-called "social plugins" are used on parts of our websites (such as Facebook, Twitter, XING, LinkedIn, Pinterest). These plugins can be used to send data, including personal data, to US service providers and may be used by them.
STEMMER IMAGING does not collect any personal data itself using the social plugins or through their use. To prevent data from being transferred to service providers in the US without the user's knowledge, we deploy the so-called Shariff solution. This solution ensures that no personal data is passed on to the providers of the individual social plugins by simply loading our websites. Data can only be transferred to the respective service provider and stored there by clicking on one of the social plugins.
