This procedure prevents unauthorized persons from registering with your e-mail address. Your registration for the newsletter is logged (storage of the registration and confirmation time and the IP address). With the help of the logging, the registration process can be proven in accordance with legal requirements.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the e-mail address (and optionally first name and surname for the purpose of personal contact) and its use for sending the newsletter with associated performance measurement at any time. A link for cancellation is provided at the end of each newsletter.

The legal basis for logging is Art. 6 l (f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest arises from the fact that we use a secure and user-friendly newsletter system that is useful for sending out the newsletters and protects the personal data of newsletter subscribers. Furthermore it allows us to provide proof of consent.
