This website uses the services of MailChimp to send out newsletters. The provider is the Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. MailChimp is a service which, among other things, allows the sending of newsletters to be organised and analysed. If you enter data (e.g. email address) for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter, they will be stored on MailChimp’s servers in the USA. MailChimp is certified according to the EU-US Privacy Shield. The “Privacy Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA that aims to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA. MailChimp enables us to analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the email (known as a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the USA. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. Technical information (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system) is also recorded. This information cannot be assigned to the respective recipient of the newsletter. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of this analysis can be used to adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients more effectively.
If you do not want analysis via MailChimp, you have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website. Data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation. The data you have provided to us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. After you unsubscribe from the newsletter, it will be deleted from our servers and from MailChimp’s servers. This does not affect data that we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the member area). For more information, see MailChimp’s data protection regulations: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.
Conclusion of a data processing agreement We have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp, in which we oblige MailChimp to protect our customers’ data and not to pass them on to third parties.
