In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When exercising such objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done.

With the following advices we inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter you agree to the receipt and the described procedures. Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter "newsletters") only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. If the contents of a newsletter are specifically described within the scope of a registration, they are decisive for the consent of the users. In addition, our newsletters contain information about our services and our company. Double opt-in and logging: Subscription to our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can log in with other e-mail addresses. Subscriptions to the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. The changes to your data stored with the service provider responsible for the dispatch of the newsletter are also logged. Credentials: To subscribe to the newsletter, simply enter your e-mail address. Optionally we ask you to indicate a name for the purpose of personal address in the newsletter. The dispatch of the newsletter and the performance measurement associated with it is based on the recipient's consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 GDPR. The registration procedure is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We are interested in the deployment of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of users and also allows us to provide proof of consent. Cancellation/Revocation - You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. We may store the e-mail addresses we have unsubscribed for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we erase them for the purpose of sending the newsletter in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of these data is restricted to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual application for cancellation is possible at any time, provided that at the same time the former existence of a consent is confirmed. All newsletter data is stored on protected servers in Germany. The service provider responsible for the dispatch of the newsletter uses certified data centers and double redundant data backups. There is a contract for data processing with the agency responsible for our newsletter.
14 Newsletter - service provider for dispatch
For the dispatch of the newsletter we use the service provider mailingwork, a service of mailingwork GmbH. The data protection regulations of this service provider can be viewed here: https://mailingwork.de/datenschutz
. The dispatch service provider is deployed on the basis of our legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and an processing contract according to Art. 28 para. 3 S. 1 GDPR. The dispatch service provider can use the recipient's data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimization of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, the service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them or to pass the data on to third parties.
15 Newsletter - Performance measurement
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a service provider for dispatch, from its server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour in connection to their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The 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 endeavour, nor, if used, that of the service provider for the dispatch, to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by informing us by using another contact method. The information is stored for as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After a cancellation we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.
