Newsletter mailout via CleverReach
The email newsletter is sent via the technical service provider CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede (“CleverReach“), to whom we transmit the data provided when subscribing to the newsletter. This transmission is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR and serves our legitimate interest in using a promotionally effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The data you entered for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. email address) is stored on the servers of CleverReach in Germany and/or Ireland.
CleverReach uses this information to send and statistically analyse the newsletters on our behalf. For the analysis, the sent emails contain so-called web beacons and/or tracking pixels which represent one-pixel image files stored on our website. This enables us to determine whether a newsletter email was opened and which links were clicked, if applicable. With the so-called conversion tracking we can also analyse whether a pre-defined action was carried out after the link in the newsletter was clicked. Technical information is also collected (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data are solely collected in pseudonymised form and are not linked with your other personal data; a direct link to an individual person cannot be established. This data is solely used for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of such analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you would like to object to the data analysis for statistical analysis purposes, you have to unsubscribe the newsletter.
We concluded a commissioned-processing contract with CleverReach, in which we oblige CleverReach to protect our clients’ data and not to disclose the data to third parties.
