On our website, we offer a newsletter which informs the recipient about our activities, products and services (newsletter subscription). To obtain this newsletter, it is necessary to subscribe on our website. The data you insert for the subscription is used by us to send you the newsletter.
These data are:
- Your email-address
- The IP-address of the computer system you use
- Date and time of the application
- Optional data, if you decide to provide (name, etc.)
We do need your email-address to send you the newsletter. The other information is necessary to avoid abuse of the service.
The optional data you share with us, we will use to purposefully inform you about our products. Please be aware that this data is no requirement for sending the newsletter.
We use “Mailchimp” to send you the Newsletter, provided by Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The mentioned data will be transmitted to this company pursuant Art. 28 para. 3 s.1 GDPR within processing by a processer. The company will not use the data to get in direct contact with you or to transmit this data to a third person. The Rocket Science Group, LLC is certificated by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.
We analyze the reading behavior of our newsletter-mailing (opening rate and click rate). It is possible for us to relate this behavior to a single newsletter recipient. This is done with the purpose of making our newsletter even more interesting and adapting to the needs of our readers.
For sending the newsletter, the email-address is necessarily required and is processed on the legal base of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. To address you personally, we may add your name in case you either shared it with us or we can take it from the email-address or other public sources. This process is handled pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest: performance of our business activity). Other optional data you shared with us will be processed based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f (legitimate interest: performance of our business activity).
A termination of the subscription and therewith a right to object and erase is possible at any time. For that purpose, you can find a link attached in the Newsletter.
