Privacy policy

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is of great importance to Goll Consulting GmbH. In general, it is possible to use the Goll Consulting GmbH website without enclosing any personal data. Should an individual, however, make use of some of our company's particular services on our website, it is possible that it is necessary to process certain personal data. In cases where it is necessary to process personal data, and there is no legal basis for the processing of such data, we generally seek consent from the person involved.

The processing of personal data always occurs in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the applicable country-specific Goll Consulting GmbH private policies.

As the controller, Goll Consulting GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the protection of the personal data, which is processed via this website, is as complete as possible. However, the internet-based transmission of data may generally have security gaps, which means that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. On account of this, each individual is free to make personal data available to us using alternative methods, such as via telephone.

Subscription to our newsletter

Users of the Goll Consulting GmbH website have the possibility to subscribe to our company's free newsletter (Goll Consulting Management News).

Goll Consulting GmbH uses this newsletter to inform its customers and business partners regularly about the company's products and services. It is only possible to receive our company's newsletter if (1) the person requesting in has a valid email address and (2) the person requesting it registers for the newsletter to be sent to them. When a person registers for the newsletter for the first time, a confirmation mail using the double-opt-in process is sent to the registered email address for legal purposes. This confirmation mail serves to ensure that the owner of the email address has authorised the receipt of the newsletter as the person in question.

The personal data that is collected for the registration of the newsletter is used solely for the purpose of sending out the newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by email should this be necessary for the newsletter service or a registration to this effect, such as in the case of changes to the newsletter service or changes in the technical conditions related to the newsletter. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the recipient at any time. The consent to the recording of personal data, which the recipient has given in order to receive the newsletter, can be revoked at any time. There is a link in every newsletter for the purpose of revoking consent. Furthermore, it is possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter anytime in a mail to office@remove-this.goll.de. Your data will be deleted within 4 weeks after your subscription has ended provided there are no legal obligations to retain such data.

We use the CleverReach services of the company CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany for sending the newsletter. We transmit the email address and the details given voluntarily to CleverReach for the purpose of sending the newsletter. You can find further information about CleverReach's private policy here: https://www.cleverreach.de/datenschutz/.

Newsletter tracking

The Goll Consulting GmbH newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. Tracking pixels are miniature graphics that are embedded in emails and are sent in HTML format to facilitate log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. With the embedded tracking pixel, Goll Consulting GmbH is able to see whether, and when, an email has been opened by a person in question and which of the links that are included in the email have been opened.

The personal data that is gathered from such tracking pixels that are embedded in the newsletter, is saved and evaluated by the controller, in order to optimise the newsletter and to customise the content of the newsletter more to the requirements of the recipient. This personal data is not forwarded to any third party. Newsletter recipients have the right to revoke the separate consent that they gave via the double-opt-in process at any time. Once revoked, the personal data will be deleted by the controller. Goll Consulting GmbH interprets unsubscribing the newsletter as an automatic revocation.
