Scope of Application

This Privacy Policy informs users about the nature, extent, and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by artGate GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Provider" or "we") on this website (hereinafter referred to as “Offer”).

Access Data/Server Log Files

The provider collects data on every access to the service (so-called server log files). The access data includes:

  • Name of the accessed website, file(s)

  • Date and time of access

  • Amount of data transferred

  • Message about the successful access

  • Browser type and version

  • User's operating system

  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page)

  • IP address and the requesting provider

The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security, and optimization of the service. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications.

Handling of Personal Data

Personal data are information that can be used to identify a person, meaning details that can be traced back to an individual. This includes the name, email address, or telephone number. Also, data about preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which websites someone has visited are considered personal data. The provider only collects, uses, and discloses personal data when it is legally permitted or when users consent to the data collection.

Get in contact

When contacting the provider (for example, via a contact form or email), the user's details are stored for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions.


With the newsletter, we inform you about us and our offers. If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected. This data is only used for sending the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties. When you subscribe to the newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves solely as proof in case a third party misuses an email address and subscribes to the newsletter without the knowledge of the rightful owner. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address, and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area, or by notifying us using the contact information provided above.

Integration of Third-Party Services and Content

It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds, or graphics from other websites, is embedded within this online offering. This always assumes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as 'third-party providers') perceive the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the user's browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the presentation of these contents. We strive to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, for example, for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we inform users about it.


Cookies are small files that enable specific, device-related information to be stored on the user's access device (PC, smartphone, etc.). They serve, on the one hand, to improve the user-friendliness of websites for users (e.g., storing login data). On the other hand, they are used to capture statistical data on website usage and to analyze it for the purpose of improving the offering. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option to restrict or completely prevent the storage of cookies. However, it is pointed out that the use, and in particular the user comfort, may be limited without cookies.

Google Analytics

This offering uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses so-called 'cookies,' which are text files that are stored on users' computers and enable an analysis of their use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about users' use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event of IP anonymization being activated on this website, the IP address of users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by users, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide other services associated with website usage 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 data from Google.

Users can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting their browser software accordingly; however, this offer informs users that in this case, they may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. Further information on data usage for advertising purposes by Google, setting options, and objection possibilities can be found on Google's websites.

Revocation, Changes, Corrections, and Updates

The user has the right to obtain information free of charge upon request about the personal data stored about them. Additionally, the user has the right to correct inaccurate data, and to block and delete their personal data, as long as this does not conflict with any legal obligation to retain data.
