We will only use your personal data for the purposes stated in this Privacy Statement and not for other purposes, unless the further processing of the personal data is compatible with the purposes for which this data was originally processed.
We collect the following information from you:
- When you contact us directly via the web form or an e-mail, we may receive additional information about you such as your name, email address, phone number, the contents of the message and/or attachments you may send us, and any other information you may choose to provide.
- When you visit our website, we collect data about your visit and surfing behaviour on our website.
- For our newsletter we collect your name, e-mail address, company name (optional). We register whether you open the newsletter and your click behaviour.
We use the information we collect in various ways, including to:
- Respond to your questions or comments
- Provide, operate, and maintain our website
- Improve, personalize, and expand our website
- Understand and analyse how you use our website
- Generate user statistics
- Develop new products, services, features, and functionality

We will not use your personal data for other purposes, unless the further processing of the personal data is compatible with the purposes for which this data was originally processed.
The information we ask to be able to contact you or to process an order is based on the legal ground of ‘performance of the agreement’ with you.
Other information is processed on the basis of ‘our legitimate interests’, such as the data we need for a properly functioning website, tailored to the wishes of the website visitor.
You have the right to object to these processing operations. If you wish to object, please contact us. In that case, we will stop processing your personal data, unless there are compelling, legitimate reasons that make our interest in the processing greater than your interest to stop processing. If you ask us to stop processing, you may no longer be able to make optimal use of our services.
In some cases we will ask for your permission before we process your data. This concerns the following processing operations:
- Before you register for an event
- Before we send you a newsletter or other publication
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. In that case we will not further process your personal data.
We offer a newsletter with which we want to inform interested parties about news in the field of our services and related matters. You will only receive this newsletter if you are a subscriber. Subscribers are 1) persons who have registered for the newsletter and 2) existing customers. Each newsletter contains a link that allows you to unsubscribe with one click.
On our website, we use the “Custom Audiences” remarketing feature, the “Lookalike Audiences” target group feature, and the Conversions API from Facebook Ireland Limited (4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland “Facebook”).
The Facebook Ireland Limited (“Facebook”) “Lookalike Audiences” feature uses the same tracking pixel and is used by Facebook to calculate similarities with other Facebook/Instagram users and to identify new customers based on website visits and interactions. Facebook uses this to generate statistical twin/lookalike target groups in order to display targeted advertisements to these users as well.
With the Facebook Conversions API, the data is still collected in the client and processed on our web server. However, data collection with the API also takes place even when the Facebook pixel should be blocked in the client. A tracking code is then executed on the server which sends the collected events to the actual Facebook API on the Facebook servers. There, the data from the API and the data from the Facebook Pixel are merged, with the Conversion API complementing the tracking via the Facebook Pixel.
