This means that following your registration, we will send an email to the email address provided in which we will ask you to confirm that you have requested delivery of the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration, your data will be blocked and automatically deleted after a month. Furthermore, we also save the IP addresses used and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to substantiate your registration and, if necessary, determine whether your personal data is being misused.

(3) Your email address is the only mandatory piece of information required to send you the newsletter. Following your confirmation, we shall store your email address for the purposes of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Article 6 para. 1 S.1 lit. a of the GDPR.

(4) You may revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email, [via this form of the website,] by email to [Newsletter@example.com] or by sending a message to the contact details provided in the imprint.

(5) This website uses the services of MailChimp for sending newsletters. The service provider is Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA

MailChimp is a service that helps among other things to organise and analyse the sending of newsletters. If you enter data for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (for example, your email address), it will be stored on the MailChimp 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 United States to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.

With the help of MailChimp we can analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file contained in the email (called Web beacon) connects to the MailChimp server in the United States. This can determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g., time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). These data can not be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. They are used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to adapt newsletters better to the interests of the recipients.

If you do not wish any analysis by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter message.

The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Article 6 para. 1 S.1 lit. a of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by unsubscribing from the newsletter.

For further information, please refer to the Privacy Policy of MailChimp: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.
