The newsletter service provider acts on our behalf in transmission and evaluation (further described in: Newsletter analysis) of our newsletter.
Furthermore the newsletter service provider (according to the company's own information) can use the collected data to optimize/improve its own service (e.g.: technical transmission optimization, presentation of the newsletter, etc.).
After you have subscribed to our newsletter, you receive at first an email which asks you to confirm your email address and after clicking the confirmation link you are validly subscribed to our newsletter mailing list. This measure is taken to ensure that an unknown person can't subscribe you to our newsletter without your personal consent. In the course of the sign-up process our newsletter service provider stores the date and time of the subscription, your email address, as well as your IP address.
Possible changes of your information will be stored and logged by the newsletter service provider electronically.
The newsletter service provider uses so called "web beacon" image files – which are invisible/imperceptible image files, that will be downloaded (as long as "show images" is activated in your mail client software) from the server of the newsletter service provider. By downloading this "web beacon" the newsletter service provider gets different data (e.g.: browser software, IP address, date and time, etc.), which he collects and stores. This information will also be used by the newsletter service provider to make technical improvements.
It is stored if and when the newsletter was opened. Furthermore which links were clicked. Because of the technical conditions, this information can be assigned to the different newsletter subscribers. However, it is certainly not our interest, or the interest of our newsletter service provider, to specifically analyse/observe individual users of our newsletter. But rather we use the whole range of gained data to identify the reading interests of our newsletter subscribers to thereupon being able to adjust our newsletter content to their interests.
The subscription without the newsletter analysis is not possible. If this is not wished for the newsletter subscriber has to cancel the newsletter subscription – read therefore the following section.
