We will only send newsletters as e-mails with advertising information (hereinafter referred to as “newsletter”) with the explicit consent of the recipient or if we are legally authorized to do so. Insofar as the content of the newsletter has specifically been described during the subscription to said newsletter, it is decisive for the consent provided by the user. Our newsletters also contain information about our products, offers, promotions and our company.
(b) To subscribe to our newsletter, all you have to do is provide your e-mail address. The subscription is carried out in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that once you subscribe, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your subscription. This confirmation is required so that nobody can subscribe to our newsletters with third-party e-mail addresses.
(c) The subscriptions to our newsletter are protocolled in order to be able to prove the subscription process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes recording the time of subscription and confirmation, as well as the IP address used for the subscription. Changes to your data stored at MailChimp are also logged.
Furthermore, according to its own information, the shipping service provider may use this data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without allocation to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and display of the newsletter or for statistical purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or pass them on to third parties.
(e) To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address.
(f) The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are first collected. This information is used to technically improve the services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior on the basis of their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor Mail Chimp’s aim to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
(g) Consent to the dispatch of the newsletter is given on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) and Art. 7 GDPR as well as § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 and Para. 3 UWG. The use of the MailChimp dispatch service provider, the performance of statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure are carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our interest is directed towards the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of the users.

The revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the newsletter sent on the basis of your consent until you revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. When you unsubscribe from the newsletter, your personal data will be deleted, unless their storage is legally required or justified, in which case their processing will only be limited to these exceptional purposes.

We will store your deleted e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR before we delete them for the purpose of sending you newsletters in order to be able to prove that you have previously given your consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of consent is confirmed at the same time.

When accessing the respective social media networks or platforms, the terms and conditions and the data handling policies of the respective provider apply, upon which we have no influence whatsoever. This means that the data may be handled outside of the European Union.
(b) When you use a social network, your data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. The user behavior and the interests of the users resulting thereof can be used to create usage profiles. The usage profiles in turn can be used, for example, to place advertisements within or outside of the platforms, which presumably correspond to the interests of the user. Cookies that save the usage behavior and the interests of the user are generally stored on the computers of the users for these purposes. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the usage profiles independent of the devices used by the user (especially if the user is a member of the respective platform and is logged in).
