These data can not be assigned to specific persons. A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively, if we become aware of specific indications for illegal use.
On the basis of your expressly given consent, we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail to your specified e-mail address.
For the receipt of the newsletter the indication of your E-Mail address, your sex as well as first name and surname is sufficient. When you sign up to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by email about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (such as changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).
For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that an application is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the "Double opt-in" procedure. For this purpose we record the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation mail and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data is not collected. The data will be used exclusively for the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
The consent to the storage of your personal data and their use for the newsletter can be revoked at any time. Each newsletter has a link to it. In addition, you can unsubscribe from this website at any time or inform us of your request via the contact option indicated at the end of this Privacy Notice.
This website uses CleverReach for sending newsletters.
The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service with which newsletter delivery can be organized and analyzed. The data entered by you for newsletter reception (eg e-mail address) will be stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany or Ireland.
Our newsletters sent with CleverReach enable us to analyze the newsletter recipient. This can u. a. analyze how many recipients have opened the newsletter email and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a predefined action (for example, purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis through CleverReach newsletters, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/functions/reporting-and-tracking/.
Data processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.
If you do not want to be analyzed by CleverReach, unsubscribe from the newsletter.
The data deposited with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter is stored by us from the newsletter until it is taken out and deleted after deletion of the newsletter both from our servers and from the servers of CleverReach. Data stored for other purposes with us remain unaffected.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

In order to render our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as: Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes - that operators of such libraries collect data.
