For an effective registration we need a valid email address. In order to check that the registration is actually made by the owner of an email address, we use the “double opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the order for the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation email and the receipt of the response requested. Further data is not collected. The data will only be used to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

Pardot Marketing Automation
Pardot is marketing automation software. Marketing automation supports us in finding out the product interests of our users, improving the information offered on our website and providing users with more relevant information.
Ethcon GmbH uses Pardot as a marketing analysis service that enables us to maintain, measure and optimize communication with our website visitors. Based on the findings of the analysis, we can continuously optimize the website content.

Emails sent through Pardot use tracking technologies. We use the data obtained through tracking to find out which topics you are interested in.

In addition, the data subjects can reasonably foresee that their personal data will be processed accordingly by ethcon GmbH.
Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to present our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as. B. Google Webfonts ( https://www.google.com/webfonts/ ). Google web fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, the content is displayed in a standard font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of the map functions by visitors.

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this – for example via a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or setting your browser so that cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked.
Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you have to set the respective opt-out cookie again.
