European DataWarehouse GmbH (“ED” or “we” or “us”) is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We gather, use and keep information in line with the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (German Federal Data Protection Act, “BDSG”) and all relevant regulations.

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect your personal information on those web sites of ED and its third party providers that post or link directly to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Site”) and through offline means, how we protect such information, and the choices you have concerning our use of such information. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal information and how we treat it.

For the purpose of the BDSG, the data controller is European DataWarehouse GmbH, a German limited liability company registered in the local court of Frankfurt am Main with registration number HRB 92912 and registered office at Walther-von-Cronberg-Platz 2, 60594 Frankfurt am Main.

Information We May Collect From You

You can visit the Site and browse without having to provide your personal details. However, ED may collect and process the following data about you:

  • Information that you provide by filling in forms on the Site
  • If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence
  • We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them
  • Details of your visits to the Site including traffic data such as the time of your visit to our Site, the browser you used and other data generated during your visit to our Site, as well as the resources that you access


To enhance the Internet experience on the Site, ED may use ‘cookies’ on the Site. Cookies are data that a web server transfers to an individual’s computer for recordkeeping and other purposes. We use cookies and other technologies to facilitate users’ ongoing access to and use of the Site. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular web site, to your computer. If cookies are disabled, however, all features of the Site may not operate as intended. Information about the procedure you are required to follow in order to disable cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider’s web site. The ED corporate website and Edwin are compliant with cookie regulations and guidelines in both the European Union and Germany.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google“. Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site. The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there. In using Google Analytics our website employs the extension, “_gat._anonymizeIp”. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Google uses this information to analyze your use of our site, to compile reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services relating to website and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website. Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on for most current browsers that provides you with more control over what data Google can collect on websites you access. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) used by Google Analytics not to transmit any information about website visits to Google Analytics. However, the browser deactivation add-on offered by Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may engage. You can find additional information on how to install the browser add-on at the following link:

Use of Personal Information Collected

We may use your personal information to provide you with the services and information offered through the Site, for ED’s internal business purposes, such as data analysis, editorial and feedback purposes, to provide customer support, to customize and improve the content and layout of the Site or our other web sites, for the development of marketing and promotion plans and materials and statistical analysis of user behavior for the development of products, marketing and promotion plans and materials.

Right to Access and Further Rights with Regard to Your Personal Data

Under the BDSG, you have the right to request access to your personal data which we may have stored or process. You are entitled to request us to correct any inaccuracies in your personal data or to suppress or delete or otherwise limit our use of such data free of charge. Furthermore, you may object to the anonymous or pseudonymized collection and storage of data for the purposes of optimizing our website at any time.
