Our newsletters are distributed via MailChimp, a newsletters distribution platform owned by US Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave. NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (hereinafter referred to as “MailChimp”).
The e-mail addresses of our Newsletter recipients, as well as their other information described in these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients for their own purpose or to pass them on to third parties.

a) Double opt-in and logging
The registration to our newsletter is carried out by a double opt-in procedure. After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This procedure increases security and prevents logins with external e-mail addresses.The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the registration of login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Changes made later to your data stored with MailChimp will also be logged.
b) Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a web beacon, a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.
Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be allocated to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our desire nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations help us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
c) Termination / Revocation
You can unsubscribe to our newsletter at any time and revoke your consent. A separate revocation of a dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation that is part of the MailChimp service is not possible. To unsubscribe from the newsletter, you can use the link at the end of the newsletter or send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
