Hinweis zur Datenweitergabe in die USA und sonstige Drittstaaten

(1) Wir verwenden unter anderem Tools von Unternehmen mit Sitz in den USA oder sonstigen datenschutzrechtlich nicht sicheren Drittstaaten.

Wir haben auf diese Verarbeitungstätigkeiten keinen Einfluss.

This transmits to the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of your end device is also stored by the provider. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected and processed by the provider through the use of the service.

XVIII. Sendinblue (früher Newsletter2Go)

We use the service on our website.

We use the service for sending our newsletter. For this purpose, the data you provided when registering for the newsletter is passed on to the provider.

These are one-pixel-sized image files that are stored on our websites. This allows your user behavior to be tracked, in particular whether you have opened the newsletter email or which hyperlinks in the email you have clicked on. The provider can also perform conversion tracking, i.e. determine whether a previously desired action has taken place after clicking on the hyperlink in the newsletter e-mail. In addition, technical information such as the time of the retrieval, your IP address, data about your web browser as well as the operating system are collected. This data is collected exclusively pseudonymously. The data is not linked to other personal data. A direct reference to a person is therefore excluded.

We use the service for sending our newsletter.
