Data collection on our website

The data that is collected during your visits to our website is processed on behalf of Peschel Communications GmbH, Wallstr. 9, 79098 Freiburg.

What do we use your data for? Some of the data is collected to ensure the error-free provision of our website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.

Analytical tools and third-party tools When you visit our website, your browsing behaviour may be statistically analysed. This is mainly done using cookies and analytical programs. Your browsing behaviour will generally be analysed anonymously, which means that it cannot be traced back to you. You may object to this analysis by rejecting the use of cookies.

SSL and TLS encryption For security reasons and to safeguard the transmission of confidential information which you send to us as the website operator (for example orders or inquiries), this website uses SSL and TLS encryption. You can tell that a connection is encrypted if “http://” changes to “https://” in your browser’s address box. A padlock icon should also appear in your browser bar.

When SSL and TLS encryption is activated, third parties are not able to read data which you send to us.

Commissioned data processing

We have signed an agreement on commissioned data processing with Google and are fully compliant with the stringent requirements of the German data protection authorities regarding the use of Google Analytics.


Peschel Communications GmbH uses the services of MailChimp in order to send newsletters. These services are provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service which can be used to organise and analyse newsletter campaigns. The relevant data is stored on MailChimp’s servers in the USA.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA which was set up to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.

We use MailChimp to analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent using MailChimp, a file contained in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the USA. This allows us to tell if a newsletter message has been opened and which links are clicked on. Technical information is also collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be associated with individual newsletter recipients. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the interests of recipients.

If you do not want your user behaviour to be analysed by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this purpose in every newsletter. Alternatively, you can send an email to

Your data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The lawfulness of data processing up to this point will not be affected by your withdrawal of consent.

For more information, please see MailChimp’s Terms of Use at:

We have entered into a data processing agreement with MailChimp, which obliges MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not to disclose this data to third parties. This agreement can be viewed here:
