Use of your data for direct advertising
Subscription to our email newsletter
If you subscribe to our email newsletter, we will regularly send you news about Biowert. Mandatory data for sending the newsletter are your email address, your first and last name and your preferred language (German or English). We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an email newsletter once you have expressly confirmed that you consent to receiving our newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation email asking you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter in the future by clicking on a confirmation link.
By clicking on the confirmation link, you give us your consent to use your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point a GDPR. When you subscribe to the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by your Internet service provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of subscription to be able to trace any possible misuse of your email address later on. The data we collect when you subscribe to the newsletter will be used only for advertising purposes by means of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking on the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending an email to the responsible person mentioned. After unsubscribing, your email address will be deleted from our newsletter mailing list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further usage of your data or we reserve the right to use your data in a way that goes beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.
Newsletter mailings via MailChimp
Our email newsletters are sent via the technical service provider The Rocket Science Group, LLC d/b/a MailChimp, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (https://www.mailchimp.com/), to whom we pass on the data you provided when subscribing to the newsletter. This transfer takes place in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR and serves our legitimate interest in using a newsletter system that is effective in advertising, secure and user-friendly. Please note that your data is usually transferred to a MailChimp server in the USA and stored there.
MailChimp uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. For the evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files that are stored on our website. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. Using the web beacons, MailChimp automatically creates general, non-personal statistics about the response behaviour to newsletter campaigns. However, based on our legitimate interest in the statistical evaluation of the newsletter campaigns for the optimisation of the advertising communication and the better alignment with recipient interests, the web beacons also collect and utilise data of the respective newsletter recipient (email address, time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system) in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR. This data allows an individual conclusion to be drawn about the newsletter recipient and is processed by MailChimp for the automated creation of statistics that show whether a specific recipient has opened a newsletter message. If you wish to deactivate the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
MailChimp may also use this data itself in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR on the basis of its own legitimate interest in the needs-based design and optimisation of the service as well as for market research purposes, for example to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter subscribers to contact them themselves or to pass them on to third parties.
To protect your data in the USA, we have concluded a data processing agreement ("Data Processing Agreement") with MailChimp based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission to enable the transfer of your personal data to MailChimp. If you are interested, this data processing agreement can be viewed at the following internet address: https://mailchimp.com/legal/data-processing-addendum/
