You will receive an e-mail after registration asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can log in with foreign e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes storing the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. The changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider will also be logged.

Registration details: To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to include a name in the newsletter for personal address.

Newsletter – Mailchimp

The newsletters are sent by mail service provider “MailChimp”, a newsletter shipping platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The data protection regulations of the shipping service provider can be viewed here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby provides a guarantee to comply with the European level of data protection (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAGstatus=Active). The shipping service provider is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with the Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. gdpR and an order processing contract in accordance with Article 28(2) 3 p. 1 GDPR.

The shipping service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i.e. without being assigned to a user, for the optimization or improvement of its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and presentation of the newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down themselves or to pass on the data to third parties.

Newsletter – Measuring Success

The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file, which is retrieved from our server when opening the newsletter from our server, or if we use a shipping service provider, from its server. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are collected first.

This information is used to improve the technical requirements of the Services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of the polling locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention, nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider, to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

A separate revocation of the success measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled.

Hosting and e-mailing

The hosting services we use are intended to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, e-mail, security and technical maintenance services that we use for the purpose of operating this online offer.

Logfile information is stored for security reasons (e.g. to investigate abuse or fraud) for a maximum period of 7 days and then deleted. Data, the further retention of which is necessary for the purpose of proof, is excluded from deletion until the relevant incident is finally clarified.

Online social media presences

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services there.

We would like to point out that users’ data can be processed outside the European Union. This can create risks for users, as this could, for example, make it more difficult to enforce users’ rights. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they are committed to complying with EU data protection standards.

Furthermore, users’ data are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from the usage behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used to display advertisements inside and outside the platforms, for example, which presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the user’s usage behaviour and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

The processing of the personal data of the users takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective information of the users and communication with the users in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for consent to the aforementioned data processing, the legal basis of the processing is Art. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

GDPR) content or service offerings from third parties in order to integrate their contents and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).

This always presupposes that the third parties to this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We make every effort to use only those content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website.

Youtube

We include the videos of the platform “YouTube” of the provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

Google Fonts

GDPR) we use social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

When a user calls up a feature of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user’s device and integrated by the user into the online offer. User profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the users according to our state of knowledge.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and store his IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the rights and setting options for the protection of the privacy of users, can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
