Privacy Policy

We take the protection of your data seriously and treat it confidentially. All information collected is subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and this Privacy Policy.

Various data is collected through the use of this website. This includes, for example, information about access (date, time, page viewed). This data does not constitute personal data; it is anonymized. It’s evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes. It is not passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes. The provider expressly points out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by email) may have security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties.

This Privacy Policy explains what data is collected, how it is used and what purpose it serves.

External Links

This website contains links to third-party websites (external links). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When the external links were first created, the provider checked the third-party content for any legal violations. At that time, no legal violations were apparent. The provider has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The inclusion of external links does not imply that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link as its own. It is not reasonable for the provider to constantly monitor the external links without concrete evidence of legal violations. However, such external links will be deleted immediately if legal violations become known.

To ensure a coherent display of this website, we use web fonts provided by Google. When visiting a website, your browser loads the necessary web fonts into your browser’s cache in order to display text elements and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you use must establish a connection to Google’s servers. Through this process, Google receives the information that the website was visited with your IP address. The decision to use Google Web Fonts was based on the fact that we want to display appealing web content. This decision constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) GDPR. If your browser does not support the web font used, a standard font will be used on your computer. For more information about Google Web Fonts, see the
Google Fonts FAQs.

Subscription to the Newsletter via the MailChimp Service

We send email newsletters only with the consent of the recipients or legal permission. When you subscribe to the newsletter, you will receive regular information and event announcements about the Reallabor Radbahn project.

In principle, the newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter mailing. For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address entered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email serves to verify whether the owner of the email address as the data subject has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. Consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the purpose of sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. Furthermore, the data subject can communicate this to the controller via

Use and Application of MailChimp

The 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 are stored on MailChimp’s servers 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 services, 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, nor does it pass them on to third parties.

The privacy policy of MailChimp can be found here:

Statistical Collection 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. As part of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of 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.

Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations 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.

Use of the YouTube Plugin

Our website uses the YouTube plugin, a site operated by Google. YouTube videos that you can find on this page have been embedded through a no-cookie IFrame. This process is similar to a two-click solution, as the video does not start loading until you activate the play button. In this way, no cookies are stored, but a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. In this way, the YouTube server is told which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your Internet usage with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. Our use of YouTube is based on our interest in offering an attractive online presence and easily understandable content. This decision constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) GDPR. Further information on YouTube’s privacy policy is available at
