We send newsletters, emails and other electronic notifications with advertising information ("newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or with legal permission. The content of the newsletter is relevant for the consent of the recipient, insofar as it is described in detail in the context of the subscription.

Use of the mailing service MailChimp

For the mailing of our newsletters we use "MailChimp", a newetter-mailing platform by US company Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 20208, USA.

The email addresses of our newsletter-recipients (and the additional data as described in this policy) are being stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and analize newsletter at our request. Furthermore, MailChimp as stated can use this data for the optimization and improvement of their own services, e. g. for technical optimisation of the mailing or presentation of newsletters, or for economic purposes, to know which countries the recipients inhabit. Mailchimp does not use the data, however, to contact the newsletter recipients, and it does not hand them to third parties.

We trust in the reliability, the IT and data safety of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified by the US-EU-data-protection-agreement "Privacy Shield" and thereby required to obey the data security requirements of the EU. In addition, we signed a "data processing agreement" with MailChimp, that is a contract through which MailChimp is obliged to protect the data of our subscribers in accordance with the data policy as requested by us, and especially not to share data with third parties. You can check MailChimp's data policy here.

Should you request your personal data to be deleted, the information will be deleted from our database and the physical subscription form will be destroyed.

Statistical survey and analysis

The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", that is a pixel-sized file, which is retrieved by the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. The retrieval at first surveys technical information (e. g. information about your browser, your system, your IP address) and the time when opening the newsletter. This information is used to technically improve services by analising technical data or the target audience and its reading habit through the retrieval locations (identifyable through the IP addresses) and retrieval times.

The statistic survey inclued the determination, whether or not the newsletters have been opened, when they have been opened, and which links were clicked. For technical reasons, it is technically possible to assign this information to individual newsletter recipients, it is however neither our intention nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The analysis serves the purpose to understand general reading habits of our audience and to adapt our content or to send our contend accordingly to different sections of the audience.

Online-viewing and data management

At times, newsletter recipients will be guided to the MailChimp website. The newsletters, for example, contain a link with which newsletter recipients can open the newsletter online, that is, in their browser (which may be convenient, if, for example, the newsletter can not be properly viewed in a specific mailing programm). Forthermore, newsletter recipients may want (and can) correct or alter their data (e. g. their email address) at some time. MailChimp's data polici is only availabl on MailChimp's website, too.

In this context, we would like to point out, that MaiChimp uses cookies on its websites, and that these cookies collect personal data that can be processed by MailChimp, its partners and third parties (such as Google Analytics). We can not influence this collection and use of data. More information about this is given in MailChimp's data policy. We would also like to point out, that you can object to the survey of data for advertising purposes on the websites and (for Europe).


You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time and revoke your consent to the storage and processing of your subscription information. This deletes both your consent in to the mailing via MailChimp and the statistical analysis. A seperate revokation of the mailing via MailChimp or of the statistical analysis is not possible.

You can find a link to cancel your newsletter subscription at the end of every newsletter.
