You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. The data from the input screen is transmitted to us when you apply for the newsletter. In addition to the e-mail address and the other data entered by the user (name, company and position, address, phone number and message), the IP address of the computer to be called up, as well as the date and time of registration are collected.
The data required for dispatch (last name, first name, e-mail) is entered via the US service MailChimp from The Rocket Science Group, LLC. This service is privacy shield-certified. In addition, we have concluded a contract for order data processing with the provider. Using MailChimp, we also collect data, specific to the user, on whether and when our newsletter has been opened and whether the links it contains have been clicked (performance measurement by means of opening and click rates).
The user’s e-mail address is collected in order to deliver the newsletter. The data entered in conjunction with the performance measurement is used to further optimize our content in the future.
With the exception of processing via MailChimp, no data is transferred to third parties in connection with data processing for the dispatch of newsletters. The data is only used for dispatching the newsletter.
For the presented processing of data, your consent is obtained during the dispatch process, and you are referred to this data privacy statement.
The legal basis is thus Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point a of the GDPR.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user’s e-mail address is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. The user concerned can cancel the subscription to the newsletter at any time. Each newsletter contains a corresponding link for this purpose.
Contact Form and E-Mail Contact
Our website provides forms enabling you to contact us by electronic means. If you take advantage of this option, the data entered in the input screen is transmitted to us and stored. This data is:
• First name and last name
• Company and position
• Address (Street, ZIP code, City, Country)
• E-mail address
• Phone number
• Individual message
To process the data, your consent is obtained during the transmission process, and you are referred to this data privacy statement.
Alternatively, you can make contact using the e-mail address provided. In this case, your personal data transmitted to us in the e-mail is stored.
We only process personal data from the input screen in order to process establishing contact. If you contact us via e-mail, this also constitutes the required legitimate interest pursued in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the transmission procedure is used to prevent the contact form from being misused and to ensure that our IT systems are secure. Depending on the circumstances, data processing is based on the consent of the user, the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the performance of a contract and/or to safeguard our legitimate interests. The legal basis for data processing is accordingly Article 6 Paragraph 1 Points a, b and/or f of the GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. With regard to the personal data from the input screen of the contact form and the data that has been sent by e-mail, this is the case once the respective conversation has ended with the user. The conversation is considered ended once it has been established from the circumstances that the matter in question has been fully clarified.
Users can revoke their consent to the processing of their personal data at any time. If a user contacts us via e-mail, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time. The conversation may not be continued in such cases. All personal data that has been stored during contact is then deleted, unless it needs to be stored in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations.
