Newsletter dispatch via CleverReach

Our e-mail newsletter is sent via the technical service provider CleverReach GmbH & Co.

This transfer takes place 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 for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter (e.g. email address) will be stored on the CleverReach servers in Germany or Ireland.
CleverReach uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. For the evaluation, the newsletters sent by e-mail contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which represent one-pixel image files that are stored on our website. In this way it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a previously defined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) took place after clicking on such links. Technical information is also recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected exclusively in pseudonymised form and is not linked to your other personal data; direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyzes 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 unsubscribe from the newsletter.
We have concluded an order processing contract with CleverReach, with which we oblige CleverReach to protect the data of our customers and not to pass it on to third parties. You can read more about CleverReach’s data analysis here:
