Newsletter and use of the mail service provider “MailChimp”

With our newsletter we inform you about current offers, products and service providers. If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you. The data are collected that are entered into the input mask during registration. In order to be able to address you personally, we ask you to state the title and the name. Of course you can also use a pseudonym here. This data will only be used for sending the newsletter. In addition to these data, we also store the date of registration. This logging serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address and orders the newsletter without your knowledge under your e-mail address.

Our newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

For this purpose, your e-mail address, as well as other voluntarily given data, will be processed on the servers of MailChimp in the USA on our behalf.

MailChimp also uses this data, according to its own statements, to optimize its own services. Any further use is excluded.

Besides the fact that MailChimp has declared itself to comply with the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, we have also concluded a “Data-Processing-Agreement” with MailChimp.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Our website uses buttons for the social networks:

Facebook, Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA

Twitter, Twitter Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA

Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA

The buttons are marked with the logo of the respective social network. However, these are not the usual social plugins, but buttons with stored links. You can activate (click) the buttons separately. If these buttons are not clicked, no data will be transmitted to the social networks. Only when you click on the buttons and thereby declare your consent to communication with the servers of the social network, the buttons become active and the connection is established.

After clicking the button corresponds to a so-called share plugin. The social network is provided with information about the page you visit, which you can share with your contacts on your social network. If you want to share the information, you must be logged in. If you are not logged in, you will be taken to the login page of the social network you clicked on and you will no longer be on our pages. Once you are logged in, the information will be sent that you would like to recommend the respective article.

By activating the button, the social network then also receives information that and when you have called up the corresponding page of our website, as well as e.g. your IP address, information about the browser used and the language settings. When you click the button, your click is sent to the social network and used according to its data usage guidelines.

When activating the button, we have no influence on the collected data and data processing processes and are not responsible for this data processing and are also not responsible in terms of the GDPR. We are also not aware of the full scope of data collection, its legal basis, the purposes and the storage periods. Therefore, the information provided here is not necessarily complete.

The data is transferred regardless of whether you actually have an account with the provider or are logged in there. If you are logged in with the provider, your data will be directly assigned to your account. Providers may also use cookies on your computer to track you.

To our knowledge, the provider stores this data in user profiles which it uses for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) to the representation of demand-fair advertisement and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise this right of objection, please contact the respective provider.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the respective social network as well as your relevant rights and employment options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the information provided.
