If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data only for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
We therefore only process the data you enter in the contact form for the newsletter with your consent.

The data processed until receipt of your request may continue to be processed lawfully.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used for sending the newsletter until you unsubscribe from the newsletter, after which this data will be deleted. Data that we have stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members’ area) remain unaffected by this.
This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newsletters. This service is provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
MailChimp is a service that organizes and evaluates the sending of newsletters. When you provide data (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter, this data is stored on MailChimp servers in the USA.
We use MailChimp to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file contained in the email (a so-called web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the USA. This allows us to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links you click on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to a specific recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to your interests.
If you do not want your use of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.
The data processing is based on your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The data processed until your revocation may continue to be processed lawfully.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used for sending the newsletter until you unsubscribe, after which this data will be deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data that we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the member area) remain unaffected.
