So-called cookies are used to recognize multiple use of an offer by the same user. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser stores on your computer. When you visit our site again, these cookies provide information to automatically recognize you. This recognition is based on your IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way is used to optimize our offers and to provide you with easier access to our site. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive by selecting "do not accept cookies" in your browser settings. However, this may result in a functional restriction of our offers.
Managing your cookie settings
If you no longer wish cookies to be stored on your terminal device, you can change the settings of your web browser so that cookies are rejected by default. For more information about enabling, disabling and deleting cookies, please use the 'Help' function or go to https://cookies.insites.com/disable-cookies/ for assistance.
If you delete certain cookies, some parts of this website may not function (optimally).
Automatic data acquisition
For technical reasons, the following data, among others, which your Internet browser transmits to us, is recorded:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
- Website you visit
- Date and time of your access
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and thus does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimize our website and our offers. After evaluation, this data is deleted.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
This website uses the Hotjar web analytics service provided by Hotjar Ltd ("Hotjar"). Hotjar is a European company based in Malta. This analytics service allows movements on the website to be tracked. For example, it is possible to see how far users scroll down the screen and which buttons users click. This provides us with useful information for optimizing our website to make it even more customer-friendly. We pay particular attention to the protection of your personal data when using Hotjar. For example, we can only track which buttons are clicked, mouse history, scrolling behavior, device screen resolution, device type and browser information, country of residence and browser language. Hotjar offers each user the possibility to prevent its use with the help of a "Do Not Track header", so that no data about the visit to the respective website is recorded. Instructions with information about your browser can be found at https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out.
You can prevent the storage of cookies. You can also prevent the transmission of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
- IP anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
- Demographic characteristics
This website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account.
Google AdWords and conversion tracking
This website uses Google AdWords, an online advertising program from Google. As part of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can easily deactivate the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Our newsletter is sent using "MailChimp", a newsletter sending platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp may use this data to optimize or improve its own ser- vices, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and display of the newsletters or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass them on to third parties.
- Statistical survey and analyses
The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked on. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavor nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The analyses serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
- Termination / Revocation
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consents. At the same time, your consent to the sending of the newsletter via MailChimp and the statistical analyses will expire. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
Social media plug-ins
For extended communication with our customers and interested parties, we use social media plug-ins of the YouTube network on our website.
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
Contact forms, course registration forms, orders in the online store
There are several forms on our website that you can use to contact us electronically, register for a course, or make a purchase from our online store.
If you send us inquiries, registrations or orders using these forms, the personal data you voluntarily provide, including your inquiry from the contact form, will automatically be stored at Vendomat AG for the purpose of processing your inquiry, for marketing purposes and in the event of further follow-up inquiries. For the processing of exactly your request, we may transfer your personal data to one or more order processors for processing.
By logging in to our website, the IP address of the person concerned, the date and the time of logging in are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify crimes that have been committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for the protection of the controller.
We use Google reCAPTCHA on our website. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether data entry on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is taking place.

The mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise, we will reject the registration.
For important changes, for example in the scope of the offer or in the case of technically necessary changes, we use the e-mail address provided during registration to inform you in this way.
