Usage of personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to determine a person, i.e. information that can be used to trace back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites someone has visited are considered personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is legally permitted or if the users agree to the collection of data.
When contacting the provider, the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.
Note to the newsletter according to the sample of lawyer Dr. Thomas Schwenke.
With the following notes we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and your right to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the described procedures.
Content of the newsletter
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipients or with a legal permission. If, in the course of registering for the newsletter, its contents are specifically described, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Furthermore, our newsletters contain information on legal topics, in particular in the field of marketing law, data protection and our law firm (this may include in particular references to blog posts, lectures or workshops, our services or online presence).
Double-Opt-In and logging
The registration to our newsletter is done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with foreign e-mail addresses.
The newsletter registrations are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored with MailChimp are also logged.
Use of the dispatch service provider “MailChimp
The newsletters are sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter dispatch platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore MailChimp may use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimization of sending and presentation of newsletters or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them itself or pass them on to third parties.
To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address.
Optionally we ask you to enter your first and last name. This information is only used to personalize the newsletter. Furthermore, we also optionally ask you to enter your date of birth, gender and your industry. We only use this information to adapt the contents of the newsletter to the interests of our readers.
Statistical survey and analyses
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of MailChimp when the newsletter is opened. In the context of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times.
Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor MailChimp’s intention to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
Online access and data management
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. Your consent to receive the newsletter via MailChimp and the statistical analyses will expire at the same time. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible.
You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
Legal basis Basic data protection regulation
In accordance with the provisions of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) applicable from 25 May 2018, we hereby inform you that consent to the sending of e-mail addresses is given on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a, 7 DSGVO and § 7 (2) no. 3, or (3) UWG. The use of the MailChimp service provider, the execution of the statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure are based on our legitimate interests according to article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO. We are interested in the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system, which serves our business interests and meets the expectations of the users.
We would also like to point out that you can object to the future processing of your personal data in accordance with the legal requirements under Art. 21 DSGVO at any time. The objection can be made in particular against processing for the purposes of direct advertising.
Integration of services and contents of third parties
It can happen that within this online offer contents of third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as we are aware of this, we inform the users about it.
The data entered during registration is used for the purpose of using the offer. Users can be informed by e-mail about information relevant to the offer or registration, such as changes in the scope of the offer or technical circumstances. The data collected can be seen in the input mask during registration.
