E‑mail address. The regis­tra­tion for the news­let­ter takes place in the double opt-in proce­dure. This means that after regis­tra­tion you will receive an e‑mail with which you must confirm your regis­tra­tion. This proce­dure prevents someone unaut­ho­ri­zed from regis­tering with your e‑mail address. Your regis­tra­tion for the news­let­ter will be logged (storage of the regis­tra­tion and confir­ma­tion time and the IP address). With the help of logging, the regis­tra­tion process can be proven in accordance with legal requi­re­ments.

Legal basis for sending news­let­ters and the asso­cia­ted measu­re­ment of success: This is based on the consent of the reci­pi­ent in accordance with Art. 6 I (a) GDPR, Art. 7 GDPR toge­ther with Section 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG or on the basis of the legal permis­sion accor­ding to § 7 Para. 3 UWG.
And Art. 6 1 (f): Our legi­ti­mate inte­rest in measu­ring success results from reco­gni­zing the reading habits of our users based on the opening of the news­let­ter, opening hours and the links clicked on, in order to be able to create and send them inte­rest-based and useful content.

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