You can register to receive a free newsletter. We use a double opt-in process for sending the newsletter. That means we will only send you the newsletter by e-mail when you have provided your express consent stating that we, or an affiliate of the diconium Group, should activate the newsletter service. Once you have registered, we will send a notification e-mail to the address you provided and request that you confirm your newsletter registration by clicking on one of the links contained in the e-mail.
At all times, and with effect for the future, you can object to the use of your personal data for e-mail advertising purposes. It is sufficient to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or to one of the addresses provided below. You will also find an “unsubscribe” link in every newsletter. Your revocation will not result in any additional costs other than those incurred through standard transmission costs.
The processing of your data occurs in accordance with your consent as per Art. 6, Sec. 1 letter a) GDPR for purposes of mailing the newsletter. As long as there are no conflicting interests on your part, your personal data will be deleted if you do not confirm receipt of the newsletter or if you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Conflicting interests on your part are, in particular, the exercising of a right to object to advertising. Your personalized data is collected for the implementation of your objection to receive advertising in order to adhere to this request in future (Art. 6 Sec. 1 letter c GDPR). A usage for any other purposes is not processed.
The mailing of the e-mail newsletter is processed by the technical service provider HubSpot Inc., 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141, USA (“HubSpot”). We forward the data you’ve provide to us upon newsletter registration to HubSpot. The data you have entered for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g., the e-mail address) is stored on the servers of HubSpot in Germany. We are obligated to inform you that – within the scope of support and maintenance services – your data may be processed by HubSpot Inc. in the United States of America. The USA does not represent a secure third-party country. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that your data will be used for other purposes without your knowledge, and that it will not be possible for you to exercise your rights as an affected party. In particular, the use of your data by law enforcement and intelligence agencies cannot be ruled out. By providing your consent for these services, you confirm that you are aware of these risks and that you accept these (Art. 49, Sec. 1 letter a GDPR).
On our behalf, HubSpot uses the provided data for mailing the newsletter as well as for conducting statistical analyses. For the analyses, the e-mails sent contain web beacons or tracking pixels that represent one-pixel image files that are stored on our website. This enables us to determine whether or not a newsletter mail has been opened and which links, if any, were accessed. With the help of conversion tracking, it can furthermore be analyzed whether or not a predefined action (e.g., product purchase on our website) occurred after the newsletter link was clicked. Moreover, technical information is recorded (e.g., time of access, IP address, type of browser, and operating system).
Using this information, we create a user profile of your activities on our website so that we can better understand your interests and better customize our information.
