Data Processing Rules


If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the holder of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that the newsletter is sent in a consensual manner. In the course of this process, the potential recipient is added to a mailing list. After this, the user is given the opportunity to confirm registration in a legally secure manner by means of a confirmation e-mail. Only after confirmation is received is the address actively included in the mailing list.

We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and offers.

SendinBlue is used as the newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Sendinblue GmbH. Sendinblue is prohibited from selling your data and using it for purposes other than sending newsletters. Sendinblue is a certified German provider, which was selected in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz).
