The provision of additional specifically designated information is voluntary and shall be used for the purpose of personalized marketing. After confirmation, we will store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter.

Please note that, if we send a newsletter, we will analyze how you use it. For the purpose of conducting this analysis, the submitted e-mails contain a so-called web beacon, i.e. a tracking pixel, which are single-pixel image files stored on our webpage. For the purpose of analysis, we link the data referred to in Article 3 and the web beacon to your e-mail address and individual identification (ID).

Such identification (ID) is also contained in the link provided in the newsletter. With the data obtained in this way, we create a user profile in order to adapt the newsletter to your individual interests. In doing so, we collect information during the time you are reading our newsletter and monitor which links you clicked on, and from this we draw conclusions about your personal interests. We link the data in question to your actions on our webpage.

Such tracking is not possible if you have deactivated image display in your e-mail client by default. In this case, the newsletter will not be displayed in its entirety and you may not be able to use all the features. If you manually enable image display, the abovementioned tracking shall take place.

  • we have taken subsequent measures to ensure that the rights and freedoms of individuals will no longer be at risk;
