Personal data is individual information about the personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. Such personal data includes, for example, the name, address, date of birth, e-mail address and IP address (Internet Protocol address).

I. What data is collected on our website?


  1. Data that you enter in forms on our website.
  2. Data that you do not enter in forms on this website, but which is automatically transferred to our web server as general information by your browser (e.g. your IP address).
  3. Tracking / Matomo
  4. The general information that your browser (Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer or other) sends with every enquiry is stored in a so-called log file. This data is used exclusively for statistical purposes and to analyse errors. Personal data is not utilised and, where possible, is not collected in the first place. The anonymisation of IP addresses by Matomo is activated.

In principle, it is possible to create a profile directly via the user behaviour of a specific user, for example, if the IP is known (especially if the IP was assigned statically). When dialling in via an Internet provider, you are usually assigned a new IP each time you dial in. This means that only the provider can draw conclusions about the specific person via the IP.

Tutech ensures that this data is only used for the purpose of measuring the success of the website. Individual user profiles are not created. Data is not analysed in relation to individuals or profiles. We collect general visitor statistics using the open source Matomo (formerly Piwik) to support our decisions on conversions and optimisations. 

Our newsletters are analysed to monitor their success. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links were clicked on particularly often. The MailPoet plugin used for this allows us to categorise (“cluster”) the newsletter recipients according to various categories. The newsletter recipients can be categorised according to certain criteria, for example. In this way, the newsletters can be better customised to the respective target groups. If you do not wish to be analysed by MailPoet, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this purpose in every newsletter message.

You are not being tracked since your browser is reporting that you do not want to. This is a setting of your browser so you won’t be able to opt-in until you disable the ‘Do Not Track’ feature.


II. Storage of Data

    1. Data from formsWhen forms are sent, the content is usually sent as an e-mail to a Tutech employee. You will receive an e-mail with the content of the stored data at the same time or at the latest after your message has been processed. If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No other data is collected, or only on a voluntary basis. We do not use external newsletter service providers to process the newsletter. 
    2. Web server log filesThis data is stored solely for technical reasons or for statistical purposes. These statistics are occasionally used to create a performance evaluation and are not used to analyse individual visitors.

III. Disclosure of Data

Tutech Innovation GmbH does NOT pass on personal data to third parties. Exceptions to this are only possible if there is a legal obligation. Such a legal obligation exists, for example, vis-à-vis investigating authorities.

IV. Cookies

A cookie is information that a website can store in a simple text file in the web browser (i.e. on your computer). The website can read this information again, even on your next visit, if it is a permanent cookie. Cookies are used by online shops, for example, to temporarily store the contents of your “shopping basket” until the actual order is placed. They are also frequently used to store your user ID on websites with restricted access. It is therefore not necessary to re-enter data each time you visit the site because it can be retrieved directly. Tutech does not use cookies wherever possible. However, if the absence of cookies makes it necessary for the visitor to repeatedly enter login data, for example, then cookies are used for user-friendly operation. The WordPress software we use can use new cookies under certain circumstances, e.g. after version updates. We check this regularly and correct it in the interests of data minimisation.

V. Data security

We ensure a high level of data security on all the web servers we use. As much as we are convinced of the security of the data once it arrives on our servers, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmission over the Internet. Our websites are also all equipped with a certificate so that encrypted data transmission via https is possible. As a rule, the websites are set up so that https is the default setting. This website uses a plugin called MailPoet to send newsletters. The provider is Aut O’Mattic A8C Ireland Ltd, Business Centre, No.1 Lower Mayor Street, International Financial Services Centre, Dublin 1, Ireland (hereinafter MailPoet). MailPoet is a service that can be used to organise and analyse the sending of newsletters, among other things. We have integrated MailPoet locally on our servers. The data you enter for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter is processed on our servers. MailPoet does not have access to this data.

VI. Consent / refusal to the collection of data

Form data: You can decide for yourself which data you enter in forms. Some forms have mandatory fields if processing is not possible without this information. The accuracy of the content is irrelevant for the check. However, please bear in mind that we cannot reply to you by e-mail without your e-mail address. In addition, anonymous enquirers generally only receive general information and in some cases these enquiries can be inadvertently classified as spam and therefore cannot be answered.

Web server log files: If you do not wish to transmit any system information to us, you are of course free to make use of appropriate anonymisation services. We do not use any filters or geoblocking.

Cookies: You can configure your web browser so that it does not accept cookies. This may prevent you from using many functions on the web.

The data processing takes place on the legal basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time for the future. The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased to apply. We reserve the right to delete or block e-mail addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion within the scope of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this. After you unsubscribe from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored in a blacklist if this is necessary to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest. We use your voluntarily provided data for the purpose for which you have given it to us. We will only use your data for these purposes if you have also given us your consent to use it for other offers or for marketing purposes. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. Stored personal data will be deleted if you withdraw your consent to storage, if knowledge of the data is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored or if storage of the data is not permitted for other legal reasons.
