MailChimp

This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newslet­ters. This service is provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service which orga­nizes and analyzes the distri­b­u­tion of newslet­ters. If you provide data (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter, it will be stored on MailChimp servers in the USA.

MailChimp is certi­fied under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agree­ment between the Euro­pean Union (EU) and the US to ensure compli­ance with Euro­pean privacy stan­dards in the United States.

We use MailChimp to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. This allows us to deter­mine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links you click on. In addi­tion, tech­nical infor­ma­tion is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and oper­ating system). This infor­ma­tion cannot be assigned to a specific recip­ient. It is used exclu­sively for the statis­tical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newslet­ters to your interests.

If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you will have to unsub­scribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsub­scribe from the newsletter by contacting us through the web-formula or by contacting our desig­nated Data Privacy respon­sible listed at the start of the data privacy statement.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsub­scribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when regis­tering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscrip­tion when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.
