(USA)). This may be necessary, for example due to optimal care by the respective local EXASOL market organization.

If the registration form contains information about forwarding data to a partner company of EXASOL, I agree to the data transfer to the specified partner company .

3.1  Registration for downloads and webinar participation

I agree to the usage of the mandatory and voluntary field data collected via a registration form by EXASOL for downloads and webinar participation, in order to allow me to use the online services offered, such as the downloads material or webinars. The data collected in this way can be stored for an unlimited time. I can revoke this consent at any time with an effect for the future. A promotional use of these data takes place in accordance with subparagraph 3.2 of this declaration of consent.

3.2  Promotional usage of data

I agree that the data collected in the mandatory and voluntary registration fields as well as the web analytics data of my visits of the EXASOL website can be saved as a profile and evaluated for personal advertising targeting purposes and uses by the EXASOL group (consisting of EXASOL AG, EXASOL Vertriebsholding GmbH, EXASOL Europa Vertriebs GmbH, EXASOL Cloud Computing GmbH, EXASOL Big Data Technologies GmbH, EXASOL UK Limited, EXASOL, INC (USA)). To collect the above-mentioned web analytics we use “cookies”. Cookies are (very) small text files stored by your browser. They serve to make the usability of a website easier, more effective and safer. Cookies saved on your computer generate no harm, take minimal memory space and are free from viruses.

In addition, I also authorize the use of mathematical and statistical methods to analyze my data for marketing purposes (promotional scoring).

3.3 Promotional usage of e-mail-address, e-mail tracking

I agree that the e-mail-address I provided to EXASOL can be used by the EXASOL group (consisting of EXASOL AG, EXASOL Vertriebsholding GmbH, EXASOL Europa Vertriebs GmbH, EXASOL Cloud Computing GmbH, EXASOL Big Data Technologies GmbH, EXASOL UK Limited, EXASOL, INC (USA)) for personal advertising targeting purposes. I have the right to object to the use of my personal data for marketing purposes (in particular with regard to e-mails received by EXASOL) and can exercise this option at any time by removing myself from the mailing list by means of the unsubscribe link in the received e-mail itself.

I agree that by receiving e-mails from the EXASOL group for marketing purposes, EXASOL group may use e-mail tracking (also called web beacons or tracking pixels). E-mail tracking means that the e-mail sender can record the time and date the e-mail is opened as well as the time and date a recipient opens a hyperlink in the e-mail. Such tracking is possible because the name of the tracking pixel or hyperlink is personalized for every e-mail recipient by appending a unique ID to it.

If I do not agree to the storage and use of my data for e-mail tracking any more, I can object to its  storage and use by using the unsubscribe link contained in any   e-mail from EXASOL at any time, with effect for the future.
