Purpose of the processing
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address. The registration for the newsletter is done in a 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 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. In order to be able to prove a previously given consent for a deleted e-mail address, it is possible that we will store it for up to 2 years before we delete it.
Legal basis for sending newsletters and the associated measurement of success: This takes place on the basis of the consent of the recipients in accordance with Art. 6 I (a) DSGVO, Art. 7 DSGVO together with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG or on the basis of the legal permission in accordance with § 7 Para. 3 UWG. As well as Art. 6 1 (f): Our legitimate interest in measuring success results from the fact that we are able to recognise the reading habits of our users based on the opening of the newsletters, 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) 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.
You are entitled to request information about the data we have stored about you and, if the data is incorrect, to demand that it be corrected or, in the case of inadmissible data storage, that it be deleted. Furthermore, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority (see point Right of appeal).
