6. Newsletter

Newsletter Data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address, and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example, via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data stored with us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after unsubscribing from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased. We reserve the right to delete or block email addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our discretion within the scope of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Data stored for other purposes with us remains unaffected.

After unsubscribing from the newsletter distribution list, your email address may be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The storage in the blacklist is indefinite. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

Newsletter Distribution to Existing Customers

If you purchase goods or services from us and provide your email address in the process, this may subsequently be used by us to send a newsletter. In such a case, the newsletter will only send direct advertising for similar goods or services of our own.

The legal basis for sending the newsletter in this case is Section 7 (3) UWG. You can object to this use of your email address at any time. The notification of objection should be directed to the contacts listed above.
