In addition, targeted advertisements can be played based on the user data available at Google (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). As a website operator, we can quantitatively evaluate this data, for example by analyzing which search terms have led to the display of our advertisements and how many advertisements have resulted in corresponding clicks.

Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyse the behaviour of the newsletter recipients. Among other things, you can analyze how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link has been clicked on in the newsletter. With the help of the so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a pre-defined action (e.g. purchase of a product on this website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information about data analysis by CleverReach newsletters, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

If you don't want CleverReach analysis, you need to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly from the website.

The data stored by you for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you are sent out of the newsletter and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after the newsletter has been unsubscribed. Data stored for other purposes remain unaffected by this.

After you have left the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored in a blacklist with us or the newsletter service provider in order to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist is used only for this purpose and is not merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You may object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
