Content of the newsletter: I send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Incidentally, my newsletter contains information about our services and us.
Double opt-in and logging: The registration for my newsletter is done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. That You will receive an email after logging in, asking for confirmation of your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses. Registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements.

newsletter – service provider
The shipping service provider may store the data of the recipient (s) in pseudonymous form, i. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve their own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of shipping and the presentation of newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of my newsletter recipients to write them down or to pass the data on to third parties.
newsletter – performance measurement
The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server when opening the newsletter from my server, or if I use a shipping service provider. This call will collect technical information, such as browser and system information, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval.
This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither my intention nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of my users and to adapt my content to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case, the entire newsletter subscription must be terminated.
