In Aridane.Marketing we meet the European standards of data protection and comply with the law in this regard, the GDPR.

Everyone has the right to the protection of personal data concerning him or her. We process such data fairly for specified purposes and on the basis of the consent of our web visitors, or some other legitimate basis laid down by law. Every visitor is entitled to have their personal information protected, used in a fair and legal way, and made available to them when they ask for a copy.

In order to process personal data, we must have a lawful reason. The lawful reasons for processing personal data are set out in Article 6 of the GDPR. We will not use your data in any case other than as allowed by law.


When visitors post comments on the site, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user agent string (this identifies the browser) to help detect spam.

An anonymized string may be created from your email address (also called a hash) and passed to the Gravatar service to verify that you are using it. After your comment is shared, your profile picture is publicly visible in the context of your comment.

Visitor comments could be examined by an automated service for spam detection.

Contact forms

Should you contact us via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

Newsletter subscription

If you would like to receive our newsletter, we need a valid email address as well as some information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. Any further data is only collected on a voluntary basis. We do not pass it on to third parties.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the newsletter form only with your consent, as per Art. 6 of the GDPR. The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.

Registrations and/or user accounts

In some of our web pages we may offer the possibility to register or create a user account, e.g. in order to access additional functions or sections. The input data will only be used for the purpose of using the respective site or service for which you have registered. 

We will continue to store the data collected during registration for as long as you remain registered on our website. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

How long we store your data

When you post a comment, it is saved indefinitely, including metadata. This way, we can automatically detect and approve follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our site, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can view, change, or delete their personal information at any time (the username cannot be changed). Administrators of the website can also view and modify this information.


If you are a registered user and upload photos to this website, you should avoid uploading photos with an EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this website could download photos stored on this website and extract their location information.

What rights you have to your data

If you have an account on our website or have posted comments, you may request an export of your personal data from us, including any data you have provided to us. In addition, you can request the deletion of all personal data that we have stored about you. This does not include data that we need to keep due to administrative, legal or security needs.

If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German state in which our company is headquartered.

Most of these cookies are so-called “session cookies”; they are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

When you write a comment on our website, this can be a consent to store your name, email address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so that when you write another comment, you do not have to enter all this data again. These cookies are stored for one year.

If you have an account and log in to this website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information and is discarded when you close your browser.

Google Analytics and IP anonymization​
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service operated by Google. Google Analytics allow us to better understand how you navigate and use our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have a legitimate interest in analyzing visitors/users behavior in order to optimize both this website and/or its advertising.

We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

This website uses Google Analytics’ demographic features. This allows us to generate reports containing statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or you can forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics.
Embedded content from other websites

Posts on this website may contain embedded content (i.e. videos, images, posts, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.

These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking services, and record your interaction with this embedded content, including your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into this website.

SSL or TSL encryption

Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Encrypted payments on our website

If you enter into a contract which requires you to send us your payment information (e.g. account number for direct debits), we will require this data to process your payment. Payment transactions using common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are only made via encrypted SSL or TLS connections.

In the case of encrypted communication, any payment details you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
