7. News­letter

News­letter data

If you wish to receive the news­letter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as infor­ma­tion that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the news­letter. Further data will not be collected or will only be collected on a volun­tary basis. We use these data exclu­si­vely for the dispatch of the requested infor­ma­tion and do not pass these on to third parties. The proces­sing of the data entered in the news­letter regis­tra­tion form takes place exclu­si­vely on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, e-mail address and their use to send the news­letter at any time, for example via the “Unsub­scribe” link in the news­letter. The lega­lity of the data proces­sing opera­tions that have already taken place remains unaf­fected by the revo­ca­tion. The data that you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the news­letter will be stored by us until you unsub­scribe from the news­letter and deleted after unsub­scribing from the news­letter. This does not affect data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area).

Mail­Chimp

This website uses the services of Mail­Chimp for sending news­let­ters. The provider is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
Mail­Chimp is a service with which the sending of news­let­ters can be orga­nized and analysed. If you enter data for the purpose of subscribing to the news­letter (e.g. e-mail address), these will be stored on the servers of Mail­Chimp in the USA. Mail­Chimp is certi­fied according to the “EU-US-Privacy-Shield”. The “Privacy Shield” is an agree­ment between the European Union (EU) and the USA which is intended to ensure compli­ance with European data protec­tion stan­dards in the USA.
With the help of Mail­Chimp we can analyse our news­letter campaigns. When you open an e-mail sent with Mail­Chimp, a file contained in the e-mail (so-called web beacon) connects to the servers of Mail­Chimp in the USA. In this way it can be deter­mined whether a news­letter message has been opened and which links have been clicked. Tech­nical infor­ma­tion is also recorded (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and opera­ting system). This infor­ma­tion cannot be assi­gned to the respec­tive news­letter reci­pient. They are used exclu­si­vely for statis­tical analysis of news­letter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future news­let­ters to the inte­rests of reci­pi­ents. If you don’t want Mail­Chimp to analyse you, you have to unsub­scribe from the news­letter. For this purpose we provide a corre­spon­ding link in every news­letter message. You can also unsub­scribe from the news­letter directly on the website. Data proces­sing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsub­scribing the news­letter. The lega­lity of the data proces­sing opera­tions that have already taken place remains unaf­fected by the revo­ca­tion. The data that you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the news­letter will be stored by us until you unsub­scribe from the news­letter and will be deleted both from our servers and from MailChimp’s servers after you cancel the news­letter. This does not affect data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area).
For more infor­ma­tion, please refer to MailChimp’s Privacy Policy at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.

Conclu­sion of a data proces­sing agree­ment
We have concluded a so-called “Data Proces­sing Agree­ment” with Mail­Chimp, in which we commit Mail­Chimp to protect the data of our custo­mers and not to pass it on to third parties. This contract can be viewed at the follo­wing link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/sample-agreement/.
