§ 4 Collection of personal data for our newsletter

(1) In our newsletter we provide you with news about our products at regular intervals (legal basis is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR and § 7 (3) UWG (German Act Against Unfair Competition)). To do this, we save and process your participant data (including title, first/last name, company, country and email address). If we have received your email address in connection with the sale of a product or service and you have not objected, we reserve the right to send you offers for similar products.

(2) When signing up for the newsletter on our website, you must consent to the use of your data in accordance with this data protection declaration. In addition to the participant data you have entered, we also save data to prove that you have given your consent (including registration date and IP address). In both cases, you can object to the processing of your data for the newsletter at any time, either by email (contact see § 1) or via an "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

In addition, we explicitly refrain from tracking recipients' behaviour and evaluating them statistically. In particular, we do not use so-called tracking pixels or tracking links.

(4) For the newsletter, data is transmitted to a service provider in the EEA in accordance with § 1 (4). No data is processed outside the EU or the EEA.
