If you register for our e-mail newsletter, we will regularly send you information about our offers. Personal data will be collected for this purpose.

This data will be used by us for our own advertising purposes in the form of the e-mail newsletter, provided that you have expressly consented to this.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have expressly confirmed that you consent to the sending of the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter in the future by clicking on the corresponding link.
By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by the Internet service provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later date.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending a corresponding message to us, e-mail [email protected]. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be immediately deleted from our newsletter distribution list and included in a blocking file to ensure revocation.
Newsletter distribution via Inxmail and newsletter tracking:
Our email newsletters are sent via the technical service provider Inxmail GmbH, Wentzingerstr. 17, 79106 Freiburg, Germany, to whom we pass on the data you provided when registering for the newsletter.
This transfer takes place in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR and serves our legitimate interest in using an effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. email address) is stored on Inxmail's servers in the EU.
If you have previously given your express consent, newsletter tracking (also called web beacons or tracking pixels) is used. When delivering the newsletter, the external server can then record certain data of the recipient, e.g. the time of the retrieval, the IP address or information on the e-mail program used (client). The name of the image file is individualized for each e-mail recipient by appending a unique ID. The e-mail sender notes which ID belongs to which e-mail address and can thus determine which newsletter recipient has just opened the e-mail when the image is retrieved.
The data is collected exclusively pseudonymously and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients. If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
Furthermore, Inxmail may use this data itself in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR on the basis of its own legitimate interest in designing and optimizing the service in line with demand, as well as for market research purposes, for example to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, Inxmail does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass them on to third parties.
We have concluded an order processing agreement with Inxmail, with which we oblige Inxmail to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.
