Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of radianstar.com and we guarantee the best practices in the use of personal data. Radianstar.com has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed.
Collection Of General Data And Information
Radianstar.com collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, we analyze anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Subscription to our periodic newsletters and freebie delivery
We regularly inform our subscribers, customers and business partners about tips, tools, resources, paid offers, updates, news about upcoming events, etc by means of a newsletter. The periodic newsletters and emails may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter and promotional emails. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address registered by a data subject, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure.
During the registration for the periodic newsletters and freebie delivery, Mailchimp also stores the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the email address of a data subject at a later date, and it, therefore, serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter and promotional emails. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by email, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances.
We will not sell, transfer or disclose the personal data collected by the newsletter service to any other companies or third parties.

You can terminate the subscription to our newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link present in the footer of every email newsletter or promotional email we send you.
We keep your information until you unsubscribe or ask for deletion or until we decide the cost of keeping it outweighs the benefits.
Our newsletter and promotional emails contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such emails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, we may see if and when an email was opened by a data subject, and which links in the email were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters and promotional emails are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the delivery of the newsletter and promotional emails, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters and promotional emails even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. We automatically regard a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

We may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses until we decide the cost of keeping it outweighs the benefits or you ask for its deletion.
