7. Comment function
If users leave comments on our site, not only the comments, but also the point in time of generating the comment, as well as the user’s name selected by the website visitor are saved. These data are processed for the purpose of protecting our legitimate interest in reducing warranty risks, as we might be made liable for unlawful contents on our website, even if such have been generated by the user.
If you are interested in receiving emails containing business recommendations, product innovations and offers, you may subscribe to our newsletter. Signing up for our newsletter is performed by the so-called Double-Opt-In-procedure. You agree to receiving our newsletter within the scope of the respective sign-up. We will then send you an email in which you are required to confirm your registration once again. By doing that you confirm that you agree to receiving our newsletter. If you no longer desire to receive our newsletter, you can withdraw your approval at any time. To do that click the link at the end of the respective email or send an email to email@example.com to unsubscribe.
For the purpose of delivering the newsletter the following data are collected: Salutation, name, email address. We use this information to inform you by email of interesting product and service innovations, or of similar products or products and services from our range on offer. Instructions on data processing in the USA:
According to jurisdiction by the European Court of Justice [ECJ] (judgement of 16.07.2020, case No.: C-311/18 („Schrems II“)) no appropriate data protection level exists in the USA. Moreover national surveillance measures might be implemented in the USA in which sufficient legal protection against any such measures cannot be utilised. Data processing in the USA in connection with our newsletter is in so far based on your approval within the sense of Art. 49 (1) 1 lit. a) GDPR.
The newsletters are circulated by means of our data processor „MailChimp“, a newsletter circulation platform offered by the US service provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The email addresses of our newsletter subscribers as well as their additional data described within the scope of these instructions are saved on the MailChimp servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. We have signed an agreement with MailChip on processing personal data pursuant to Art. 28 (3) GDPR. This encompasses the standard EU contract clauses for transferring data to the USA. See the following link for information on the data privacy terms of MailChimp: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy
In order to send you an even better newsletter containing information on offers and topics tuned to your specific requirements, the newsletters contain a so-called „web-beacon“, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved by the MailChimp server when you open the newsletter. Statistical evaluations include the information whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked (so-called opening and click rates). This helps us to measure the success of our newsletter and to identify whether contents are still interesting in your case. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter subscribers. The evaluations help us to identify the reading habits of our subscribers and to adapt our contents to your interests. That enables us to send you offers and campaigns which are tuned to your specific needs. Processing of data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR in compliance with our interest in reducing costs, by offering a targeted approach and improving our performance and at the same time by reducing irrelevant emails.
If you do not desire newsletter tracking, please unsubscribe to our newsletter. Use the link at the end of the respective email to unsubscribe.
