Further data will not be collected. We use those data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not transmit them to third parties.

Permission given for the storage of the data and the email address, as well as their use for the purpose of sending the newsletter, can be withdrawn at any time via the "Unsubscribe"-link within the newsletter.

Information about the newsletter and consent

With the following information, we will inform you about the content of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.

Use of the mail service provider "MailChimp"

The newsletters will be sent via "MailChimp", a newsletters distribution platform provided by US 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 information described in these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or to pass them on to third parties.

We trust the reliability, IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU Data Protection Agreement "Privacy Shield", and commits to comply with EU data protection requirements. We've also completed a "Data-Processing-Agreement" with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp pledges to protect the data of our users, to process it in accordance with its privacy policy on our behalf and, in particular, not to disclose it to third parties. You can view the privacy policy of MailChimp here.

Content of the Newsletter

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (following "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are authoritative for the consent of the users. Incidentally, our newsletters contain information about the digital economy and all its branches (this may include, but is not limited to, references to articles, advertisements, white papers, or online appearances).

Double opt-in and logging

Registration for our newsletter is done in a so-called double-opt-in procedure. 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 external e-mail addresses.

Registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, the changes to your data stored with MailChimp will be logged.


To sign up for the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address.

Optionally, we ask you to provide your first and last name. This information is only for the personalization of the newsletter. We also ask you optionally to include your date of birth, gender and your industry. We only use this information to adapt the content of the newsletter to the interests of our readers.

Statistical Survey and Analysis

The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.

Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our goal nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Online Call and Data Management

There are cases where we direct newsletter recipients to the MailChimp websites. For example, our newsletters contain a link that allows the newsletter recipients to retrieve the newsletters online (for example, in the event of problems with the e-mail program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients may change their data, such as the e-mail address later. Likewise, the Privacy Policy of MailChimp is only available on their page.

In this context we pointed out that on the websites of MailChimp cookies are used and thus personal data by MailChimp, their partners and used service providers (for example Google Analytics) are processed. We have no influence on this data collection. For more information, see the privacy policy of MailChimp. We also inform you about the possibility of objecting to the data collection for advertising purposes on the websites http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (for the European area).

Termination / revocation

You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to sending it via MailChimp and the statistical analyzes expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.

You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.

Legal basis Data Protection Regulation

In accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which will apply from 25 May 2018, we inform you that the consents to the sending of e-mail addresses based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 7 DSGVO and § 7 (2) no. 3 and (3) UWG. The use of the mail service provider MailChimp, carrying out the statistical surveys and analyzes as well as logging the registration process, are based on our legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We are interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of our users.

We further point out that you can contradict the future processing of your personal data in accordance with the statutory requirements under Art. 21 DSGVO at any time. The opposition may in particular be made against processing for direct marketing purposes.
