Using platforms to send newsletters

We only send newsletters, e-mails or other electronic notifications (hereinafter referred to as "newsletters") with the consent of the recipient or with legal authorization. If the content of the newsletter is specifically described at the time of registration, this is decisive for the user's consent. Our newsletters also contain information about our services and about us.

To subscribe to our newsletters, the user must generally enter his/her e-mail address. However, we may also ask for the user's name in order to address them personally in the newsletter, or for other information required for the newsletter.

Double opt-in procedure Registration for our newsletter is subject to a double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration, the user receives an e-mail in which he/she must confirm his/her registration. This confirmation is necessary to prevent anyone registering with a third party's e-mail address. Newsletter registrations are recorded in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation, as well as the IP address. Changes to data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.

Deletion and limitation of processing We may retain unsubscribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests, before deleting them in order to prove prior consent. The processing of such data is limited to the purpose of any defence against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the prior existence of consent is confirmed at the same time. In the event of a permanent obligation to observe contradictions, we reserve the right to store the e-mail address in a blocking list (so-called "block list") solely for this purpose.

Registration process recording The registration process is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to prove that it has been carried out correctly. If we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure dispatch system.

Notes on the legal basis The sending of newsletters is carried out on the basis of the recipient's consent or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and insofar as this is permitted by law, for example in the case of advertising for existing customers. If we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. The registration process is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests to demonstrate that it has been carried out in accordance with the law.

Contents Our newsletters contain information about our services, promotions and offers.

Types of data processed The data processed includes inventory data (such as names and addresses), contact data (such as e-mail and telephone numbers), metadata and communication data (such as device information and IP addresses), as well as usage data (such as websites visited, interest in content and access time).

Persons concerned Communication partners are the people involved.

Purposes of processing Processing is carried out for direct marketing purposes (e.g. by e-mail or post).

Legal basis : Processing is carried out on the basis of consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR) or on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).

Opt-out option The user may cancel receipt of our newsletter at any time by revoking consent or objecting to further receipt. The link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter, or the user can use one of the contact options indicated above, preferably by e-mail.

Additional information on treatment processes, procedures and services :

Measuring open and click-through rates Web beacon: Newsletters contain a "web beacon", i.e. a single-pixel file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a mailing service provider, from its server. During this retrieval, technical information such as browser information, the user's system, IP address and the time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve our newsletter on the basis of technical data or target groups and their reading behavior according to their retrieval location (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. This analysis also makes it possible to determine whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. This information is allocated to individual newsletter recipients and stored in their profiles until deleted.

These evaluations help us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content accordingly, or to send different content according to the interests of our users. The measurement of opening rates and click-through rates as well as the storage of measurement results in user profiles and their further processing are based on the user's consent. Unfortunately, separate revocation of performance measurement is not possible. In this case, the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled or contested. In this case, the stored profile information will be deleted.

We use Amazon SES to send newsletters to our users. Amazon SES is an e-mail service that enables us to send large-scale e-mails reliably and cost-effectively.
