Duration of storage; retention periods


We store member data for as long as necessary for the provision of our online offer (i.e., basic and premium membership) and the associated services or because we have a legitimate interest in the further storage of member data.

For basic members: You can object to the storage of personal data contained in your profile at any time without any future effect. You can also erase your profile data yourself. For basic members who are inactive for 24 months, ASTRODITA automatically erases personal profile data.

If you ask us to do so, we will erase your data, as long as there is no statutory storage obligation for such data. For data that is subject to a retention period, this data will remain locked until the expiry of the retention period. If you do not ask us to erase your data until the end of the Premium Membership, your premium membership will be converted into a basic membership. The previously stated information on the duration of the storage of basic member data would then apply.

You can also object at any time to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes (i.e., "object to advertising ").

Web analytics


We need statistical information about how we use our online offering to make it more user- friendly, measure reach, and conduct market research. For this purpose, we use the following web analytics tools. The tools either do not utilize users' IP addresses at all, or truncate them immediately after the survey.

This website and mobile application uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (i.e., "Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website and mobile application. These are cookies from Google itself (i.e., Google Analytics cookies). ASTRODITA uses Google Analytics with the additional feature offered by Google for the anonymization of IP addresses: Google's IP address is usually already shortened within the EU; in exceptional cases, only in the U.S.; and in any case, it is only in abbreviated form. On behalf of ASTRODITA, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and Internet usage, such as Google Analytics demographics and interest reports, to provide to ASTRODITA.

You can use ASTRODITA via our mobile application free from advertising cookies and analysis cookies. In this case, only the essential cookies that are necessary for the use of the website are utilized.

Using Google Adwords Conversion Tracking


ASTRODITA uses the Google AdWords online advertising program and Google AdWords conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; i.e., "Google"). When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie will be placed on your machine. These cookies lose their validity after 390 days, contain no personal data, and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain web pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and ASTRODITA may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie.

The information gathered using the conversion cookie is utilized to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. This system notifies customers of the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

You can use ASTRODITA via our mobile application free from advertising cookies and analysis cookies. In this case, only the essential cookies that are necessary for the use of the website are utilized.

Use of Google Adwords remarketing function


ASTRODITA uses the remarketing or "similar target group" function of Google Inc. (i.e., "Google"). This feature allows ASTRODITA to target visitors to the website with advertising by delivering personalized, interest-based ads to ASTRODITA visitors when they visit other websites on the Google Display Network or use Google's or a partner's search function. Google uses cookies to analyze website usage, which forms the basis for creating interest-based advertising. To achieve this, Google saves a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of ASTRODITA users. The sequence of numbers is used to record ASTRODITA's visits. We also collect anonymous data about the use of ASTRODITA. No personal data of visitors to ASTRODITA is stored. If users subsequently visit other websites on the Google Display Network or the search function of Google or a partner, ASTRODITA will display advertisements to visitors that are highly likely to include previously accessed product and information areas.

Tractor audience measurement


Our website uses the measuring method ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.INFOnline.de) to determine statistical parameters on the use of our offers. The aim of the usage measurement is to determine the number of visits to our website, the number of website visitors, and their surfing behavior, which are statistically analyzed - based on a uniform standard procedure - and used to obtain comparable values across the market.

For all digital offers that are members of the Information Society for the Determination of the Dissemination of Advertising Media (IVW - http://www.ivw.eu) or in the studies of Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung eV (AGOF - http: // www. agof.de), the usage statistics are regularly further processed by the AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyze eV (agma - http://www.agma-mmc.de) into ranges and published with the performance value "Unique User" and by the IVW with the performance values "Page Impression" and "Visits." These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.

The INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which according to EU-DSGVO have a personal reference: IP address. On the Internet, each device requires a unique address for the transmission of data, the so-called IP address. The temporary storage of the IP address is technically necessary due to the functioning of the Internet. The IP addresses are shortened by 1 byte before any processing and processed in a fully anonymous fashion. There is no storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses.

A randomly generated client identifier: In order to recognize computer systems, reach processing alternatively uses either a cookie with the ID "ioam.de," a "Local Storage Object," or a signature that is created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser. This client identifier is unique to a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not erased. Therefore, measuring the data and then assigning it to the respective client identifier is also possible if you access other web pages that also use the measurement method ("SZMnG") of the INFOnline GmbH. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

The measurement procedure of INFOnline GmbH, which is used on the ASTRODITA website, determines usage data. This is conducted to collect the performance values of page impressions, visits, and clients, and to provide additional metrics (e.g., qualified clients). In addition, the measured data is used as follows:

A so-called geo-localization (i.e., the assignment of a website call to the place of the call) takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states/regions. From the geographic information obtained in this way, in no case can a conclusion be drawn on the specific location of a user.

The usage data of a technical client (e.g., a browser on a device) are merged across web pages and stored in a database. This information is used for the technical assessment of socio-information age and gender and passed on to the service providers of AGOF for further range processing.

The AGOF study uses a random sample to technically estimate societal characteristics that fall into categories inclusive of: age, gender, nationality, occupation, marital status, household information, household income, place of residence, Internet usage, online interests, place of use, and user type.

The complete IP address will not be saved by INFOnline GmbH. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with the unique identifier are stored for a maximum of 6 months.

The IP address as well as the shortened IP address will not be forwarded. For the preparation of the AGOF study, data with client identifiers are forwarded to the following service providers of AGOF: Kantar Deutschland GmbH (https://www.tns-infratest.com/), Ankordata GmbH & Co. KG (http: // www.ankordata.de/homepage/), Interrogare GmbH (https://www.interrogare.de/).

You can use ASTRODITA via our mobile application free from advertising cookies and analysis cookies. In this case, only the essential cookies that are necessary for the use of the website are utilized.


Social plugins


The integration of social plugins regularly leads to the providers of the plugins storing cookies. The various providers of plugins are summarized below under the term "plugin provider."

In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our online service, the plugins are integrated into the site via the so-called "Sheriff solution." This ensures that when you call up a page of this online offer, no connection is established with the servers of the respective plugin provider.

Only when plugins are activated by the user does your Internet browser establish a direct connection to the servers of the respective plugin provider. This gives the plugin provider the information that your Internet browser has accessed the corresponding page of our online service, even if you do not have a user account with the provider or are currently not logged in. Log files (including the IP address) are transmitted from your Internet browser directly to a server of the respective plugin provider and possibly stored there. This server may be located outside the EU or the EEA (e.g., in the U.S.A.).

The plugins represent independent extensions of the plugin providers. Therefore, we have no influence on the extent of the plugin providers collected and stored by the plugins data.

If you do not want the plugin providers to receive the data collected via this Internet portal nor do you want to save or re-use them, you should not use the respective plugins.

In other words, you can completely prevent the plugins from being loaded with add-ons for your browser (i.e., script blockers).
