6) Use of your data for direct advertising

6.1 Registration for my e-mail newsletter

If you subscribe to my e-mail newsletter, I will send you regular information about my offers. Your e-mail address is the only required information for the newsletter. The indication of further possible data is voluntary and is used to address you personally. I use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that I will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have expressly confirmed that you agree to receive the newsletter. I will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to click on a link to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters.

By activating the confirmation link, you give me your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. When registering for the newsletter, I save your IP address entered by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to trace possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later date. The data collected by me when registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively for the purpose of advertising in the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending a message to the person responsible mentioned at the beginning. After you have unsubscribed, your e-mail address will be deleted from my newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or I reserve the right to use your data for other purposes that are permitted by law and about which I inform you in this declaration.

6.2 Sending the e-mail newsletter to existing customers

If you have provided me with your e-mail address when purchasing goods or services, I reserve the right to send you regular offers on similar goods or services from my range of products by e-mail. According to § 7 paragraph 3 UWG I do not have to obtain your separate consent for this. The data processing in this respect is based solely on our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If you have initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, I will not send you an e-mail. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the person responsible named at the beginning of this document. For this you only have to pay transmission costs according to the basic rates. After receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will be discontinued immediately.

6.3 Newsletter dispatch via Mailjet

Our e-mail newsletters are sent via the technical service provider 2018 Mailjet ( ) | 13 rue de l'Aubrac, 75012, Paris, France ("Mailjet"), to whom we pass on the data you provide when you register for the newsletter. This disclosure is made in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and serves our legitimate interest in using an effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The data you enter to subscribe to the newsletter (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on the Mailjet servers.

Mailjet uses this information for the dispatch and statistical evaluation of the newsletter on our behalf. For evaluation purposes, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files stored on my website. Thus it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on, if applicable. Conversion tracking can also be used to analyse whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) was carried out after clicking on the link in the newsletter. Technical information is also recorded (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected pseudonymously and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. These data are 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 contradict the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.

I have concluded a contract with Mailjet in which I commit Mailjet to protect my customers' data and not to pass them on to third parties.
