The data passed on shall not exceed the minimum absolutely required in each such instance. In the case where Meiko GmbH shall find ourselves obliged by law or by specific judicial decree to pass on your data, we shall do so only to state institutions and authorities legitimately legally empowered to demand such information.

Gathering of Data within the Framework of Client-Contact and Holiday Job Application Forms
The web pages of Meiko GmbH feature various sorts of client-contact forms which involve, in part, requests for personal data, such as age and sex. Meiko GmbH shall not pass on your personal data to any third party, except in the case where such data are needed for the completion of the commercial transaction in question. The data passed on shall not exceed the minimum absolutely required in each such instance.
Persons under the age of 18 years should not communicate to us any personal data without the consent thereto of their parents or guardians. We demand no personal data from children or from juveniles, we do not gather such data; nor do we pass such data on to third parties, should they happen to come into our possession.
If you wish to receive the newsletter offered by Meiko GmbH, we will require from you, as part of the registration process, a valid e-mail address and your surname. No further data will be gathered. You will need to give your consent, when first registering, to the storing of your e-mail address, and to the use of this address for your receipt of the newsletter. But you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
In order to evaluate the use of the newsletter and to optimize its quality for you, various tracking procedures are also applied:
- When receiving the newsletter, should you wish, images and artwork can be downloaded along with it. Among the objects downloaded is a so-called “tracking pixel” or “web beacon” which enables us to establish the breadth of the audience that our newsletter is reaching.
- The number of clicks is registered and saved, but in such a way that this information cannot be assigned to any individual receiving party. In the case of a request via HTTP, however, the “receiving party” is also among the information sent, in the form of a hash value, for the purpose of verification.
- Whenever a link is clicked on, this click is registered as part of the accumulated statistics, though in a form which renders the clicker anonymous. This enables us to recognize the respective degrees of use of various individual sub-sections of the website.
- Likewise active is a tracking mechanism connected with the newsletter itself, with the same purpose of allowing us to establish the degree of use of this latter.
No cookies are used for the registration of these data.
