For this purpose, we require your data protection consent and at least your e-mail address to which the newsletter is to be sent. Necessary mandatory information is marked, further details are voluntary, e.g. to address you personally or to individualize the newsletter.
We would like to continuously optimize our newsletter in order to offer our readers suitable content. For this purpose we create a performance measurement of our newsletter. We would therefore like to point out that we evaluate your opening and clicking behavior for these purposes.

For this evaluation, our newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image-files stored on our web server. As soon as you open the newsletter, the tracking pixel is loaded from our web server and at the same time information about you as an e-mail recipient is transmitted to us, such as the time of the call-up and your IP address.

Despite the technical possibilities of further analyses, we are only interested in receiving aggregated data, i.e. statistical evaluations without profiling, which refer to the opening rate of the newsletter and the opening of individual links.
You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can revoke your consent by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter e-mail or by sending us a direct message. Even if we do not send you any advertising for a period of two years, we will remove your e-mail address from our newsletter distribution list. We will delete your expired declaration of consent after expiry of the limitation periods under competition and personal rights law.
The legal basis is Art. 6(1), Subparagraph 1(a and f) GDPR.

We use third-party services to optimize our website and our offerings.
When you access a page that contains such a service, your browser establishes a direct connection to the third-party servers. The third party provider therefore receives information that you or your IP address have called up the corresponding page on our website.

If you interact with the services, for example, by clicking a button, your browser will transmit this directly to the third party provider.

Appearances on social media

We operate appearances on social media to communicate with our customers, interested parties and users and to inform them about our services. As a rule, cookies are stored on the users’ computers. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the hard disk and through which the site that sets the cookie (here through the social network) can obtain certain information.

The cookies enable the creation of statistics on the use of an appearance on the social networks. For this reason, if necessary, we have concluded an agreement on joint controllership for the processing of personal data. Furthermore, user data is also regularly used for advertising purposes by creating user profiles (especially of registered users) on usage behavior. User data ist also used to place suitable advertisements.

The legal basis is Art. 6(1), Subparagraph 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the comprehensive and optimized information of the users. We would like to point out that only the respective social network has access to the entire data and therefore an effective claim for information should be made directly to the social network. Of course you can also assert your rights with us. We will forward your request to the social medium on the basis of the agreement on joint responsibility.
