9 Newsletter

With your consent to the collection, processing and use of your data, you can subscribe to our newsletters on various topics, with which we inform you regularly about products, training offers, learning materials, events and news. To subscribe to our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration, we will send you an email to the email address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm your newsletter subscription. In order to prove your registration and, if necessary, to be able to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data, we log the subscription to the newsletter. We save the sending of the confirmation mail and the receipt of your hereby requested response as well as the data of the registration and confirmation. The data will be used solely by Heidelberg Engineering and will not be passed on to third parties. If you do not confirm your registration within two weeks, your information will be deleted.

The only mandatory data for sending the newsletter is your email address. The provision of further, separately marked data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. The legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.

You can withdraw your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. To do so, click on the link provided in each newsletter, send an email to Newsletter@HeidelbergEngineering.com or send a message to the contact details of the controller as stated in this privacy policy.

Please note that we analyse your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this analysis, the emails sent contain tracking pixels, so-called one-pixel image files, and personalised tracking links. We use this data to find out which topics are of interest to you and to improve the content provided. We record whether and when the newsletters we send to you are opened and which links are clicked on. The legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Tracking based on the one-pixel image files is prevented if you have deactivated the display of images in your email program by default. In this case the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all functions. If you display the images manually, the above-mentioned tracking will take place. Clicks on personalised tracking links are always logged.

To provide our newsletter service, we use the marketing automation solution Pardot, which we explain in the "Pardot" section of this Privacy Policy.

13 Pardot

We use Pardot, the marketing automation solution of Salesforce.com, Inc., Salesforce Tower, 415 Mission Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA, which is linked to our Salesforce CRM system. In addition to the Salesforce infrastructure, Pardot uses Amazon Web Services, Inc. as a hosting provider (third-party hosting provider). The data processing is carried out on our behalf on the basis of a contract data processing agreement that we have concluded with Salesforce.
We use the Pardot software in online marketing for:


  • systematically recording, analysing and optimising our website
  • provision of personalised content and product recommendations
  • implementation of (automated) marketing campaigns and advertising activities
  • measuring the success of marketing campaigns
  • implementation of our email newsletter service
  • provision of landing pages and forms
The legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can register for our email newsletter service as part of your Business Lounge account registration, or you can do so separately via our website. For this purpose, we provide you with a Pardot form embedded in our website or – if your browser does not display the form – directly with a link to the form created in Pardot. When you click on the subscribe button in this Pardot form, a session cookie called "Pardot" is set in your browser by Pardot. We have no influence on the setting of the cookie and its content.

On this website Pardot creates a user profile from the information about your interaction with our website and the content provided through it (including your IP address, the click path, the data listed in the section "Collection of personal data when visiting our website" of this Privacy Policy, and cookies). We can merge the user profiles created through Pardot with your customer data stored by us and with other activities.


Pardot places cookies for website tracking. These tracking technologies help us to find out which topics are of interest to you. We can recognize which pages were visited and which links were clicked on. We use this information to improve the content we provide on the website. The legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Pardot respects the "Do Not Track" initiative. You can configure this option in your browser. If this option is activated, Pardot does not use cookie-based tracking. If you want to prevent tracking by Pardot, you can ensure this as follows:
  • via  Privacy settings
  • through your browser settings
  • through an extension of your browser

However, this may lead to certain limitations in the functions and user-friendliness of our offer.

Pardot sets first-party cookies for tracking purposes, and sets third-party cookies for redundancy. Using first-party and third-party cookies together is standard in the marketing automation industry. Pardot cookies don’t store personally identifying information, only a unique identifier. Below is an overview of the cookies set by Pardot with a maximum validity of 365 days:

  • visitor_id<accountid>: The visitor cookie includes a unique visitor ID and the unique identifier for your account. For example, the cookie name visitor_id12345 stores the visitor ID 1010101010. The account identifier, 12345, makes sure that the visitor is tracked on the correct Pardot account. The visitor value is the visitor_id in your Pardot account. This cookie is set for visitors by the Pardot tracking code.
  • pi_opt_in<accountid>: If Tracking Opt-in preferences is enabled, the pi_opt_in cookie is set with a true or false value when the visitor opts in or out of tracking. If a visitor opts in, the value is set to true, and the visitor is cookied and tracked. If the visitor opts out or ignores the opt-in banner, the opt-in cookie value is set to false. The visitor cookie is disabled, and the visitor is not tracked.
  • visitor_id<accountid>-hash: The visitor hash cookie contains the account ID and stores a unique hash. For example, the cookie name visitor_id12345-hash stores the hash “855c3697d9979e78ac404c4ba2c66533”, and the account ID is 12345. This cookie is a security measure to make sure that a malicious user can’t fake a visitor from Pardot and access corresponding prospect information.
  • lpv<accountid>: This LPV cookie is set to keep Pardot from tracking multiple page views on a single asset over a 30-minute session. For example, if a visitor reloads a landing page several times over a 30-minute period, this cookie keeps each reload from being tracked as a page view.

The Google Tag Manager only manages these tags, does not set cookies and does not collect any personal data. If tracking is deactivated, this also applies to all tracking tags managed by the Google Tag Manager. The legal basis for the use of Google Tag Manager is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

21 Integration of Google reCaptcha

During registration for the "File Upload" offered on this website, we use the service “reCAPTCHA”, Version 3, provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). In the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland, the service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. We use reCAPTCHA to detect abusive, automated machine processing (“bots”) when entering information into the registration form. User behaviour – such as mouse movements, IP addresses, or queries performed – is evaluated by reCAPTCHA to distinguish individuals from bots. So in most cases it is sufficient to simply check the box to confirm that you are not a bot. Only in exceptional cases you have to solve a text or picture puzzle.

We are legally obligated to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in order to protect user data. reCAPTCHA is such a technical measure. Furthermore, the use of an alternative captcha variant for the registration to "File Upload" is technically not supported. The legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. c GDPR in accordance with Article 32 paragraph 1 GDPR.

Google does not provide comprehensive information about which personal data of the user is processed when using reCAPTCHA, but here are some examples:

  • IP address of the user
  • Resources loaded on the page
  • whether a Google account is registered
  • Cookies placed by Google
  • Interactions of the user on the page
  • CSS information of the page
  • Date
  • Language the browser is set to
  • all plugins installed for the browser
  • all JavaScript objects (JavaScript is a programming language with which, among other things, user interactions can be evaluated. The objects can contain any user data.)

Google will use and analyse this data even before you click on the "I'm not a robot" check box.

The information collected by reCAPTCHA is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, your IP address is almost always shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting countries to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Your IP address is not linked to other data held by Google unless you are logged in with your Google account while using reCAPTCHA.

For more information on reCAPTCHA, please visit: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/

For information on the purpose and scope of your data collection and processing through Google, please please refer to the provider's privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

22 Use of Usercentrics

On this website we use the Consent Management Tool Usercentrics of Usercentrics GmbH, Sendlinger Str. 7, 80331 Munich, Germany ("Usercentrics"). The tool enables you to give consent to data processing via the website, in particular to set cookies, as well as to exercise your right to withdraw consent already given.. The data processing serves the purpose of obtaining and documenting required consents to data processing and thus to comply with legal obligations. Cookies may be used for this purpose.

We store your personal data for as long as this is necessary for the duration of our business relationship or for the fulfillment of contractual purposes, including the initiation and execution of contracts.

Any further transfer of your data to a third country or an international organization does not take place.

7 Duration of storage

We store your personal data for as long as this is necessary for the duration of our business relationship or for the fulfillment of contractual purposes, including the initiation and execution of contracts.

If you have given us your consent for the processing of your personal data, we will store this data for as long as specified in the relevant consent or until you withdraw your consent.

Furthermore, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations, which result, among other things, from the German Commercial Code and the German Fiscal Code. The periods prescribed there for storage and documentation are up to ten years.

In addition, personal data may have to be stored for the period during which claims can be asserted against us. Here, the storage period is based on the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code are generally three years, but in certain cases can be up to thirty years.
