Additional data is provided in order to address you personally in the newsletter and/or to identify you if you wish to exercise your rights as a data subject.
For the dispatch of the newsletter we use the so-called double opt-in.

Mailchimp uses this information for the dispatch and statistical evaluation of the newsletter on our behalf. For the evaluation the sent emails contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files stored on our website.

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 object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must cancel the newsletter subscription.
