Our website uses the services of MailChimp for sending newsletters. Provider is the Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave. NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
MailChimp is a service that helps u.a. the dispatch of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. If you enter data for the purposes of newsletter subscription (e-mail address, for example), it will be stored on MailChimp's servers in the United States.
MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States. https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG
With the help of MailChimp we can analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an e-mail sent by MailChimp, a file included in the e-mail (called web-beacon) connects to MailChimp's servers in the United States. This will determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links may have been clicked. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g., time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). This information can not be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. They serve exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyzes can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you do not want to be analyzed by MailChimp you have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this we provide in each newsletter message a corresponding link. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.
The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data deposited with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until the time of your submission from the newsletter and deleted after cancellation of the newsletter both from our servers and from the servers of MailChimp. Data stored for other purposes with us remain unaffected.
