There are cases where I direct the newsletter recipients to the web pages of MailChimp.

Furthermore newsletter recipients can correct their data, e.g. the e-mail address, afterwards. Also the data protection declaration of MailChimp is only available on their site. In this context, I would like to point out that cookies are used on the websites of MailChimp and therefore personal data is processed by MailChimp, its partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). I have no influence on this data collection. Further information can be found in the data protection declaration of MailChimp. I would like to point out the possibility to object to the collection of data for advertising purposes on the websites http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (for the European area).

In accordance with the requirements of the basic data protection regulation (DSGVO) valid from 25 May 2018, I hereby inform you that consent to the sending of e-mail addresses is given on the basis of Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a, 7 DSGVO as well as § 7 para. 2 no. 3, respectively para. 3 UWG. The use of the mail service provider MailChimp, the execution of the statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure are based on my legitimate interests according to Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO. I am interested in the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves my business interests and also meets the expectations of users.
