Additional data is required in order to address you personally in the newsletter and/or to identify you if you wish to exercise your rights as a data subject.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter.

Technical information is also collected (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is only collected pseudonymously and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for 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 cancel your newsletter subscription.
We have concluded a contract with service providers for marketing automation solutions and integrated marketing platform for Microsoft Dynamics CRM in which we commit the service providers for marketing automation solutions and integrated marketing platform for Microsoft Dynamics CRM to protect the data of our customers and not to pass them on to third parties.
