2. Collection and storage of personal data and the nature, purpose and use thereof
a. When visiting the website
When using the website https://www.rna.de for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser used on your terminal device. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automatic deletion:
IP address of the requesting computer,
date and time of access,
time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT),
name and URL of the file accessed,
access status/HTTP status code,
amount of data transferred in each case,
website from which access is made (referrer URL),
the browser used,
the operating system of your computer and its interface,
the name of your access provider as well as,
language and version of the browser software.
The aforementioned data is processed by us for the following purposes:
Ensuring a trouble-free connection set-up of the website,
ensuring a comfortable use of our website,
evaluating system security and stability, and
for other administrative purposes.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
b. When registering for our newsletter
On our website, you have the option of subscribing to a free newsletter with which we inform you about new products and special offers. When you register for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address and a language selection. The provision of further data is voluntary and is used to address you personally and to send you more targeted information.
In addition, the following data is collected during registration:
IP address of the calling computer
Date and time of registration
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have expressly confirmed that you consent to the sending of newsletters. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters by clicking on a corresponding link.
By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.
Our e-mail newsletters are sent via the technical service provider CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany ("CleverReach"). CleverReach uses the personal data provided by you to send and statistically evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. For the evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message was opened and which links, if any, were clicked on. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it is also possible to analyse whether a predefined action has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected exclusively in pseudonymised form and is not linked to your other personal data. A direct reference to a person is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
We have concluded an order processing contract with CleverReach, in which we oblige CleverReach to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.
You can read more information about CleverReach's data analysis here:
You can read CleverReach's data protection declaration here:
The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.
The collection of the e-mail address serves to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used and to personalise the newsletter.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data in a manner that goes beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.
Unsubscribing is possible at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can also send your unsubscribe request at any time by e-mail to DV@RNA.de.
This also enables you to revoke your consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.

a. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics for web analytics. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), a company incorporated and operated under the laws of Ireland (registration number: 368047) with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies" (see 4.), which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google during transmission and storage on a Google server in the USA within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. Insofar as the data collected about you has a personal reference, this is therefore immediately excluded and the personal data is thus immediately deleted.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR.

b) DoubleClick by Google
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways:
a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly; in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving ads from third-party providers;
b) by deactivating conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com", https://www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies;
c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign "About Ads" via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
d) by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.
