  10. Notes on the Newsletter and Consents

    With the following information I explain to you the contents of my newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and your rights of objection. By subscribing to my newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the described procedures.

    Content of the newsletter

    I send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described within the scope of registration, they are decisive for the consent of the user. In addition, my newsletters contain information about products and information about promotions, such as sweepstakes or discount promotions. This may also include evaluation requests.

    Double opt-in and logging

    The registration to my newsletter takes place in a so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. I.e. after your registration you will receive an e-mail in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary, so that nobody can register with foreign e-mail addresses.

    The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise the changes of your data stored with MailChimp are logged.

    Use of the dispatch service provider "MailChimp

    The newsletter is sent via "MailChimp", a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

    The e-mail addresses of my newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp can use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of my newsletter recipients to write to them or pass them on to third parties.

    I trust in the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" and is therefore committed to complying with EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, I have concluded a "Data Processing Agreement" with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of my users, to process it on my behalf in accordance with its data protection regulations and, in particular, not to pass it on to third parties. You can view the privacy policy of MailChimp here.
