Let us be clear: we hate hidden agendas and fine print.

It is very important to us that you understand your rights so please take some time to read this statement. We cannot emphasize enough the significance of being properly informed and we want you to know that we are taking your privacy seriously.

About our Newsletter and permission.

The following notes are about our Newsletter, its content and the procedures regarding registration, distribution and statistical evaluation. They also explain your right to appeal. By subscribing to our Newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the procedures described. Please note, that these notes are additional to our General Privacy Policy.

Content of the Newsletter

Newsletters, emails and other electronic notifications containing news items and advertising material (called Newsletter hereafter) will only be sent out on express consent of the recipient or their permission in legal terms. In addition, the Newsletter may contain information about quizzes, raffles and links to content on our website.

Registration data

In order to subscribe to the Newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your email address. You can also enter your first name and surname. These are only needed to personalize the Newsletter. We don’t need your postal address.

Registration recording

A record of subscriptions to the Newsletter is kept to fulfill the legal requirements for recording the subscription process. The record contains the time of subscription as well as the relevant IP address. If you register for the Newsletter on our website, your data will be stored on the MailChimp server. Any changes of data registered with MailChimp will also be recorded.

MailChimp Data Protection Statement

We send out Newsletters using MailChimp and we use features of the MailChimp Newsletter services, a product of The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA on our website in order to gather newsletter registrations.

The email addresses of our Newsletter recipients as well as further data that will be described in these notes will be stored on MailChimp servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information for distributing and evaluating the Newsletter on our behalf. According to information published by MailChimp, the data will be used for optimising their own services, such as technical optimisation of the distribution process or the layout of the Newsletter, as well as for commercial use by determining the recipients‘ countries of residence. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our Newsletter subscribers to contact them directly.

We trust the reliability and data security of MailChimp, which has been certified in line with the Privacy Shield agreement between the US and EU. This means that MailChimp will abide by the EU data protection requirements. MailChimp’s data regulations can be viewed here.

Newsletter evaluation

If you receive a Newsletter generated with MailChimp, information such as IP address, browser, and email program are collected and stored in order to gather information regarding the Newsletter performance. By means of images integrated in our HTML emails, MailChimp can determine whether the email has been delivered and opened and whether contained links have been opened. Those images are called web beacons. Although this information technically allows the tracking of individual Newsletter recipients, we are not interested in watching the behaviour of individual users. Data analysis is used to recognise patterns in the reading behaviour of users and adapt contents accordingly or send different content to individual users.

Online access and data management

In some cases, Newsletter recipients will be directed to MailChimp websites. For instance, our Newsletters will have a link so that users can download the Newsletter directly from the website, in case they are not properly displayed in the email program.

In this context, we would like to point out that the MailChimp webpages use cookies to process person-related data that MailChimp, their partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analytics) are interested in. We have no influence on their data collection. For further information, look at the MailChimp‘s Privacy Policy .


You can unsubscribe from our Newsletter at any time, i.e. withdraw your consent. This means that your consent to sending it via MailChimp, which involves statistical analyses, is also withdrawn. The two go together and cannot be separated. The unsubscribe link is found at the bottom of each Newsletter.

Legal basis – General Data Protection Regulation

In line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force on May 25th 2018, we notify you that your consent to passing on your email address is based on Art. 6 (1a) GDPR. The use of the MailChimp service provider for sending out our Newsletter, including data collection and analysis and subscription recording, is based on our legitimate interest, as defined in Art. 6 (1f) GDPR. It is in our interest to have a user-friendly, secure Newsletter distribution system that will promote our business interests as well as fulfill user expectations.

We would like to point out that you have the right to object to the future processing of your person-related data within the legal requirements of Art. 21 GDPR at any time.
