The indication of further possible data is voluntary and is used to be able to address you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter.

We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters by clicking on a corresponding link.

Our e-mail newsletters are sent by the technical service provider CleverReach GmbH & Co.

CleverReach uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. For evaluation purposes, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files stored on our website. In this way it can be determined whether a newsletter message was opened and which links were clicked on, if applicable. Conversion tracking can also be used to analyse whether a previously defined action was performed after clicking on the link in the newsletter. Technical information is also collected (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is only collected pseudonymously and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.

We have concluded a contract with CleverReach in which we commit CleverReach to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.
