We hereby inform you about the content of our newsletter, as well as subscribe, dispatch and evaluation procedure as well as your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the reception and described procedures.


Double opt-in and logging

As part of the registration for our newsletter, the so-called double opt-in procedure is carried out; i.e. after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can log in with a foreign e-mail address. The registrations for the newsletter are recorded for the fulfilment of legal obligations of proof. This includes the storage of the time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP address.


Subscription Data           

To subscribe for our newsletter, simply enter your gender, first name, last name, email address and country of residence.


Statistical surveys and analyses

The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of the shipping service when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.

The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not our intention, nor that of the shipping service provider, to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.



The use of the newsletter provider, the performance of statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration process shall be based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We are interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests and meets the expectations of our users.



May cancel your subscription of your newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. You will find a link to unsubscribe from the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. If a user has cancelled his newsletter subscription, the stored personal user data will be deleted.

Use of Facebook and social plugins

One of the features of this Internet presence is that it uses what are called social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). These plugins are indicated by a Facebook logo.
When you access our Internet presence, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website.
Integration of the plugin causes Facebook to receive the information that you have accessed on the corresponding page of our Internet presence. If you are logged in with Facebook, it will be able to assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, such as by pressing the “Like” button, the corresponding information is sent directly to Facebook by your browser and saved there. You can find information on the purpose and extent of data acquisition as well as how the data is processed further and used by Facebook, together with your rights and optional settings to protect your private sphere, in the Facebook data protection notes (

Links to other websites

Our website has links to external websites. Since we do not have any influence on their content, we cannot assume any guarantee for the correctness of the contents. For the contents of these external sides, the respective provider or operator is always responsible. We reviewed the external sites for possible breach of the law at the time of linking and could not find any kind of legal violations. Since we cannot perform permanent review of all contents of the sites linked by us without any real points of concern, we can delete links that lead to an external site with illegal contents only after breach of the law has come to our knowledge. Should such a breach of the law become known to us, we will delete the link immediately.
