Website Analytics

The platform Partnership2030 website uses the web analysis service Matomo to analyse usage data. Every time a user accesses the platform Partnerships2030 website and every time a file is accessed, information about the activity is processed and stored in a temporary protocol file. The following information is stored for each page you view and each file you download:

  • Technical details of the browser used
  • Anonymous IP address
  • Date and time
  • Page opened/name of the file downloaded
  • Quantity of data transferred
  • Notification of whether viewing or download was successful

The Matomo program is an open source project. Third-party privacy information is available at


Temporary session cookies are used each time you view an individual page, to make navigation easier. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in your browser cache. Session cookies do not include any personal data and expire at the end of each session, or after the completion of a user survey, which is conducted as a rule every two years.

We do not use methods such as Java applets or ActiveX controls that make it possible to track your browsing behaviour.

Data is processed based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with the legitimate interest of analysing usage to improve the company’s website. Users have the option of objecting to use of their data to analyse their behaviour. You can prevent the collection of your user data via the link below.

Notes regarding objection

For this purpose, a cookie is stored on the device, preventing user data from being collected when the user visits this website. In order for the objection to take effect, the cookie must be stored on every device used. As the cookie is stored in specific browsers (internet programs), the cookie must be stored in every browser if several browsers are used on one device (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox). Please also note that, if you delete all cookies, the objection cookie will also be deleted and will need to be stored again.


Note: The newsletter is currently only sent in German.

Any personal details collected as part of newsletter and compliance bulletin subscription will only be used for the purpose of processing the subscription and dealing with your enquiries. The only mandatory information for sending you the newsletter is your e-mail address.

To register for our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after you have registered, we will send you an e-mail, to the e-mail address stated by you, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. After your confirmation, we will save your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

In addition, we store your used IP addresses and times of the registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to inform you about possible misuse of your personal data. You can revoke your consent you have given about receiving the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe the newsletter. The revocation can be realised by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter e-mail or by sending an e-mail to

The newsletter is sent by the mail service provider CleverReach. Data protection regulations of CleverReach can be viewed here:

CleverReach uses Google’s reCaptcha service to determine if a human or computer is filling out our contact or newsletter form. Google uses the following data to check whether you are a human or a computer: the IP address of the device used, the website you visit us with and the captcha included, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the device used browser and operating system type, Google account, when you’re logged in to Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha surfaces, and tasks that require you to identify images. The legal basis for the described data processing is Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. There is a legitimate interest on our part in this data processing to ensure the security of our website and to protect us from automated input (attacks).

We evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent include so-called web beacons or tracking pixels that represent one-pixel image files stored on our website. For the analysis, we link the above-mentioned data and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. The data is collected exclusively pseudonymously, so the IDs are not linked to your personal data, and thus a direct personal reference is excluded. The information will be stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After logging out, we save the data purely statistically and anonymously.

Other web-based services

When you use other web-based services that require the submission of more extensive personal data, such as online applications or registration for training courses, the data protection declarations adapted to those services will also apply.

Inclusion of services and contents of third parties

In the following, an overview of third-party providers, their contents as well as links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and contradictory possibilities (so-called opt-out) is given:

Integration of YouTube: We integrate the videos of the platform “YouTube” of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy Policy:, Opt-out:

External fonts from Google, Inc.: („Google Fonts“) are being used. The integration of “Google Fonts” takes place by a server call with Google (normally in the USA). Data Protection Declaration:, opt-out:

Cooperation with contract processors and third parties

If we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties) within the scope of our processing, transmit it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this shall only take place on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. if a transmission of the data to third parties, such as payment service providers, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR for contract fulfilment is necessary), if you have consented, if a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we commission third parties with the processing of data on the basis of a so-called ‘order processing contract’, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

Duration of data retention

Personal data are regularly deleted when

  • they are no longer needed for contractual purposes (e.g. for employment, top-ups, rental, sale or service contracts)
  • when the individuals concerned have not given any separate authorisation
  • when statutory data storage obligations and periods have expired.

Reference to user rights

You are entitled to:

  • to object to data processing,
  • enquire about your personal data and its processing
  • to have this corrected if necessary, or to request restriction of processing or the erasure of the data

The data will then be erased.
