Subscription to Our Newsletters
On the website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletters. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletters are ordered from the controller.
The website informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of newsletters about events, news, services, and offers. The company’s newsletters may only be received by the client if (1) the client has a valid e-mail address and (2) the client registers for the newsletter shipping. We store the data of the registration to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the client is authorized to receive the newsletter.
During the registration for the newsletters, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the client at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a client at a later date, and it, therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletters will only be used to send our newsletters. In addition, subscribers to the newsletters may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletters offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletters may be terminated by the client at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the client has given for shipping the newsletters, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletters at any time communicating this to the controller.
The newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the company may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a client, and which links in the e-mail were called up by the client.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletters, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the client. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Clients are at any time entitled to revoke this specific consent. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller.
