Automatic storage of access data
Every time you visit our website, usage data are transmitted by your Internet browser and stored in log files known as server log files. The data sets stored in the process contain the following data: the domain from which the user accesses the website, date and time of access, IP address of the accessing computer, website(s) visited by the user in the context of the offer, amount of data transferred, browser type and version, operating system used, name of the Internet service provider, notification of whether the retrieval was successful. These log file datasets are analysed in an anonymised form, in order to improve the offer and to make it more user-friendly, to find and remove errors and to manage the capacity utilisation of servers.
Using the contact form on our website is the quickest and easiest way to get in contact with us. To make getting in contact with us possible, a few mandatory fields are marked as such. When you fill in the fields and select “Submit”, you consent to your data being sent to us along with the message by email. The data are not stored on the web server.
If you sign up for our newsletter, we use the data that is necessary, or separately provided by you, to send you our email newsletter on a regular basis. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. You can do so either by sending a message to the indicated contact point or via a link provided in the newsletter.
This website also uses so-called cookies. A cookie is a text file with an identification number that, together with the requested data, is transmitted to the user’s computer and stored there when the website is accessed. The file is stored there for later access and used to authenticate the user.
As cookies are only simple files and not executable programs, they pose no threat to your computer. Cookies do not contain personal data, which means your private information remains protected. Browsers accept these cookies automatically depending on the settings configured by the user. However, this setting can be changed and the storage of cookies disabled or configured so that the user is notified when a cookie is stored. In the case that cookies are disabled, however, some functions of the website may not be available or only to a limited extent.
The li-x website uses temporary (so-called “session”) cookies, i.e., cookies that are only valid for the period of a so-called “session” and that are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. li-x may have links to other websites where cookies may also be used.

The newsletter is sent by means of the mailing service provider SendinBlue, a simplified limited company registered with the Commercial Registry of Paris under the number 498 019 298, headquartered in 55 Rue d’Amsterdam, 75008 Paris. The mailing service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i.e., without assignment to a user, to optimise or improve their own services, e.g., for the technical optimisation of the sending and presentation of newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the mailing service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to approach them directly nor does the provider pass on the information to third parties.
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e., a pixel-sized file that, upon opening the newsletter, is retrieved from our server, or, if we have used a mailing service provider, from their server. In the framework of the retrieval, technical information such as your browser type and operating system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval, is collected. This information is used for technical improvement of the service, as technical data or target group data can be analysed according to their reading behaviour, their download locations (identifiable through IP addresses), or download times. Statistical data collection also includes an analysis of whether the newsletters are accessed, when they are opened, and the links that are clicked on. Although this information technically allows the tracking of individual newsletter recipients, neither we nor the shipping provider, if involved, are interested in watching the behaviour of individual users. Data analysis is more importantly used to recognise patterns in the reading behaviour of our users, and to adapt contents accordingly or send different content according to the interests of our users. SendinBlue’s data protection regulations can be found here: https://de.sendinblue.com/legal/privacypolicyeinsehen.
For dispatch of the newsletter, we also use the services of Getresponse Sp. z o.o., headquartered in Gdansk, Poland, ul. Arkonska 6, A3, 80-387 Gdansk.
Getresponse will only use your data to dispatch the newsletter and to evaluate this dispatch on our behalf. Furthermore, Getresponse will only use your data to improve our own service. Getresponse will neither use the data to contact you personally nor disclose your data to third parties. The data used by Getresponse contain a “web-beacon” that sends a notification to Getresponse when you open the newsletter and/or click on a link contained in said newsletter. In this case, information about your browser, your location and your IP address is transmitted to Getresponse. This information is used to help us optimise how we approach you.
For information on how Getresponse handles your data, please refer to the data protection policy of Getresponse: https://www.getresponse.co.uk/email-marketing/gb-legal/privacy.html.
