Dear visitor of our Internet portal,

To ensure that you feel secure and comfortable when you visit our web pages, we would like to inform you about how your data will be handled.


Usage data

To improve the quality of our web pages, we store data on individual page views of our pages for statistical purposes. This record contains information on:

  • the page from which the data was requested;
  • the name of the data;
  • the date and time of retrieval;
  • the data volume transmitted;
  • the access status (data transmitted, data not found);
  • a description of the type of web browser used;
  • the IP address of the retrieving computer with the last three digits being truncated.

In accordance with the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG) these data are anonymized before they are saved. As a result, the generation of personal user profiles is impossible.



Cookies are small files saved to the hard disk of a visitor. They permit the storage of information for a certain period of time and the identification of the visitor's computer. To handle your visit on our site, we only use session cookies that are automatically deleted when you exit your browser. Thus, no data are stored permanently on your computer. You can define your browser settings in such a way that you are informed about cookies being placed, which makes the use of cookies transparent for you.


Contact form

If you wish to contact us by means of our contact form, we need your name and your e-mail address. You may communicate further information, but you do not have to do so. We use your data for sending the requested information.


Google Analytics

To ensure the demand-oriented design of our website, we use Google Analytics to create pseudonymized usage profiles. Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files saved to your computer, which permit the analysis of your utilization of our website. As a rule, the information generated by the cookies about your utilization of this website is transmitted to a server of Google located in the USA and stored there. However, as we have activated IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand in the member states of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases only, the full IP address is transferred to a Google server located in the USA and only truncated there. Google will use this information to analyze your usage of our website for us, to compile reports on website activities and to render other services to us in relation to website utilization and internet usage.

You can deny the generation of pseudonymized usage profiles at any time. In this context, you have several options:

1. The first option for refusing web analyses by Google Analytics is to set an opt-out cookie that instructs Google to refrain from saving or using your data for the purpose of web analyses. Please note that this solution will only work as long as the opt-out cookie is stored by the browser. If you want to set the opt-out cookie now, please click here.

2. You may also prevent the storage of the cookies used for building profiles by appropriate settings in your browser software.

3. Depending on the browser used, you can install a browser add-on that prevents tracking. If you wish to do this, please click here and install the browser add-on made available for downloading.


Campaign Monitor

Campagin Monitor stores and processes the information zeb receives from you as well as those that are generated by the newsletter subscription, such as e-mail address, the number of received e-mails and accessed links. This generates anonymous statistics, which help zeb to shape the newsletters according to needs. In addition, this data is neither used by Campaign Monitor nor by zeb.


Data transfer to third parties

We do not transfer any personal data to further third parties.


User rights

You have the right to inquire as to which data we store about you and for what purpose. Moreover, you can request the correction of faulty data or the deletion of data if their storage is not permitted or not required anymore. If you have any questions, requests or suggestions with regard to data protection, please contact us.

Please send your questions, inquiries, complaints or suggestions related to data protection to office [at] datenschutz-nord [dot] de.
