The data is anonymized after no more than 30 days by shortening the IP address at domain level to prevent its use to identify an individual user. The anonymized data is also processed for statistical purposes where required. At no point is the data stored together with other personal data of the user, nor is it compared to other data or passed to third parties.
b) When signing up to the ESCHA Newsletter
Providing you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 P. 1 a GDPR, we will use your email address to regularly send you our newsletter.
The following information is required to sign up.
- First Name
- Last Name
Signing up to our newsletter is carried out through a double-opt-in process. This means that after you have signed up you will receive an email in which you are asked to confirm your intent. This confirmation is required so that somebody cannot sign up using somebody else's email address.
A log is kept of sign-ups to the newsletter to prove that the sign-up process conforms with legal requirements. This includes storing the time when the sign-up and confirmation took place as well as the IP address.
Unsubscribing is possible at any time by using, for example, a link at the end of every newsletter. Alternatively, you can also tell us you wish to unsubscribe by sending us an email at any time to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our email newsletter is distributed by CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, a technical service provider whose address is Mühlenstraße 43, 26180 und Rastede ("CleverReach"), and to whom we pass the data provided by a user when they sign up to the newsletter. The data is sent in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1(f) GDPR and the transmission is in our legitimate interests to use a secure and user-friendly newsletter system which is effective in terms of its marketing impact. The data you enter to receive the newsletter (e.g. email address) is saved on CleverReach servers in Germany.
CleverReach uses this information to send the newsletter and analyse it statistically on our behalf. The emails sent contain what are called web beacons or tracking pixels which are single-pixel picture files stored on our website. They allow you to determine whether a newsletter has been opened and which links have been clicked. With the help of what is known as conversion tracking, analysis can also ascertain whether a predefined action, such as buying a product on our website, has taken place after a link in the newsletter has been clicked. Technical information is also collected (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is only collected in pseudo-anonymized form. It is not linked to your personal data and it does not personally identify you. This data is only used to statistically analyse newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the interests of recipients.
You can object to your data being analysed for statistical purposes by unsubscribing from the newsletter.
We have concluded an order data processing contract with CleverReach which obliges CleverReach to protect the data of our customers and not to pass it to third parties.
