MailChimp – Newsletter
By means of the information provided in this section, we inform you about how the registration, the dispatch as well as the evaluation and the contents of our e-mail newsletter are designed.
If you would like to subscribe to our e-mail newsletter and read it regularly, then your registration with a valid e-mail address and thus your consent to the processing of your personal data by us is required. Please note the declaration of consent on the form for registering for the newsletter.
To protect against unwanted bots, mailchimp uses the service reCAPTCHA of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
In this context, please note https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ as well as https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/terms/.
Before the newsletter is sent, you must expressly confirm to us in the so-called double opt-in procedure that you want us to activate the e-mail newsletter service for you. We do this to avoid that foreign e-mail addresses are used for registrations. For this purpose, you will receive a confirmation and authorization e-mail from us asking you to click on the link contained in this e-mail and thereby confirm to us that you would like to receive our newsletter.
In connection with the registration, in addition to the e-mail address, the registration time, the confirmation time, the IP address and the consent text are stored and we use the e-mail address exclusively for the delivery of the newsletter unless you have expressly consented to other use.
The newsletter is sent using MailChimp, a mailing platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (hereinafter referred to as the “mailing service provider”).
Small, “invisible” files (beacons) that are sent with the newsletter can be used for various evaluations to improve our offers. In the process, the IP address, browser and time of retrieval and opening of the newsletter and the click behaviour on links contained in the newsletter are recorded and statistically evaluated.
We would like to point out that there is a possibility that data may be transferred to the USA and processed by US authorities. According to the current legal situation, the USA is considered an unsafe third country with an inadequate level of data protection.
At present, there is no adequacy decision in accordance with Article 45 of the GDPR.
However, Mailchimp has committed to comply with the Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries under Directive 2016/679 (Standard Contractual Clauses – SCC).
More information on the standard contractual clauses is available at
https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_de and at https://mailchimp.com/help/mailchimp-european-data-transfers/ and https://mailchimp.com/eu-us-data-transfer-statement/.
We have concluded a Data Processing Agreement with mailchimp in accordance with a contract for commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO.
They can terminate the receipt by revoking their consents. Unsubscribing from the newsletter is thus possible at any time. To do so, please use the link provided in the newsletter or send us a corresponding e-mail message to the e-mail address stated with the person responsible. A separate revocation of the dispatch or evaluation of the user behavior is unfortunately not possible.
The dispatch of the newsletter is based on the consent of the recipients in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 para. 2 No. 3 UWG.
