With the following instructions, we inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration and dispatch procedure and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the described procedures.

Newsletter content
Newsletter content: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with information about current developments in the campaign (hereinafter „newsletter“) only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission.

Double opt-in and logging
The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other email addresses. The registrations for the newsletter 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. Likewise, the changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider are logged.

Login data

To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to provide a name, for the purpose of personal address in the newsletter.

The newsletter is sent on the basis of the consent of the recipients pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
The logging of the registration process is based on the legal obligation pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO to document the proof of consent to send newsletters to the recipients.

You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consents. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. We may store the unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years based on our legitimate interests before deleting them in order to be able to prove consent formerly given. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual deletion request is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of consent is confirmed at the same time.

Newsletter – Mailchimp

The newsletter is sent by means of the dispatch service provider „MailChimp“, a newsletter dispatch platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. You can view the privacy policy of the shipping service provider here: The shipping service provider is used on the basis of an order processing agreement pursuant to Art. 28 (3) p. 1 DSGVO.

The level of data protection in the USA and the protection of the rights of data subjects who are not US citizens is not equivalent to the European level of data protection. There is a risk that U.S. intelligence agencies may become aware that you have subscribed to our newsletter with your email address without you becoming aware of it or being able to take legal action against it. We therefore transmit your email address to Mailchimp only on the basis of your express consent pursuant to Art. 49 para. 1 lit a.

Of course, you have the right to revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time with effect for the future. In each newsletter you will find a link that takes you to the unsubscribe page.


We use the YouTube plugin on our website to play embedded videos when you activate the plugin by clicking on the „Play“ button.

In doing so, the browser transmits the following data to YouTube to enable the transmission of the video: the URL of the visited page and your IP address.

Youtube (Google LLC, 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066. USA) is a subsidiary of Google LLC based in the USA. When calling up the video service, the above-mentioned data is transmitted to servers in the USA. Since YouTube, as in the case of Mailchimp, is a US company, due to the risks mentioned above, we only arrange for the transmission by the plugin used based on their express consent to the transfer to an unsecure third country pursuant to Art. 49 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a.
