Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of data after your active registration for the newsletter is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (consent).

Since the European Court of Justice (judgement of 16.07.2020, Ref.: C-311/18 ("Schrems II")), the legal basis for processing data in a third country (USA) is Article 49(1)(a) GDPR.

The legal basis for the storage of additional data is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR in conjunction with Article 5(2) GDPR on the accountability of the consent given.

The legal basis for the processing of tracking-related data is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Purpose of the data processing
If you provide salutation and name, we use these to personalise our communication. The other data stored as part of the registration process serve to verify the consent given and to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.

The personal data collected via tracking pixels is evaluated to optimise newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to your interests.

Transfer of data to a third country
Our newsletter is sent via a service provider in the USA, with whom we have concluded a controller processor agreement. The company offers excellent technical features and has very well secured IT systems. The transfer of e-mail addresses to the company is based on the EU standard contract clauses which the company has undertaken to comply with.

Note on data processing in the USA:
According to the case law of the European Court of Justice (judgement of 16.07.2020, ref.: C-311/18 ("Schrems II")) there is no adequate level of data protection in the USA. There is a risk that your data may be processed by U.S. authorities, for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without the possibility of legal recourse.

Duration of storage
After withdrawal of the consent, the data will be deleted, unless they must be kept for verification purposes.

Possibility of objection and removal
The consent to subscribe to the newsletter can be cancelled at any time. For this purpose, there is a corresponding link in every newsletter.
