Newsletter and mass communication
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications (hereinafter “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission.

Furthermore, our newsletters contain information about our services and about us.
In order to register for our newsletters, it is generally sufficient to provide your e-mail address. However, we may ask you to provide a name (for the purpose of personal contact in the newsletter) or to provide further information if this is necessary for the purposes of the newsletter.
Double opt-in procedure: The registration to our newsletter is always done in a so-called “double-opt-in-process”. This means that after subscribing, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your subscription. This confirmation is necessary so nobody can register with somebody else’s e-mail address. The registrations for the newsletter are recorded in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes of your data will also recorded by the mailing service provider.
Deletion and restriction of processing: Before we delete e-mail addresses, we may store them for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to be able to prove that you have previously given your consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against legal claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided you confirm at the same time the former existence of a consent. In case of obligations to permanently honor objections to the reception of our newsletters, we reserve the right to store the e-mail address for this purpose alone in a blacklist.
The recording of the registration procedure is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of proving that it has been carried out properly. 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 sending system.
Notes on legal bases: The dispatch of newsletters is based on the consent of the recipients or, if consent is not required, on our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and to the extent permitted by law, e.g. in the case of advertising to existing customers.

Used services and service providers:
Transaction e-mails service provider
The email service provider can use the recipient’s data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, the email service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down itself or to pass the data on to third parties.
Newsletter – Performance Measurement
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is downloaded from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a email service provider, from their server. Within the scope of this download, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of download, are initially collected.
This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavor, nor, if used, that of the email service provider, to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by its visitors, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services relating to the use of this online offer and the internet. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.
We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that Google will reduce the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offer and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents.

Video conferences, online meetings, webinars and screen sharing
We use third-party platforms and applications (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) for the purpose of conducting video and audio conferences, webinars and other types of video and audio meetings. The selection of third-party providers and their services is made in compliance with the legal requirements.
In this context, data of the communication participants will be processed and stored on the servers of the third-party providers, as far as they are part of communication processes with us.
