Social plug-ins from Twitter

With Twitter and its Retweet functions, we use social plug-ins from, operated by Twitter Inc. 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107. If you use Retweet, the websites visited by you are announced to third parties and associated with your Twitter account.

All information and data that you provide to this site for making use of its newsletter will solely be used for the purpose of sending newsletter emails to you. For managing and sending out the newsletter, this site uses the service provider MailChimp. MailChimp is a service provided by:

The Rocket Science Group, LLC
675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE
Suite 5000
Atlanta, GA 30308 USA

Once a user subscribes to the newsletter, the user-provided data is being sent over to MailChimp and stored there. MailChimp is then subsequently responsible for sending a confirmation email to the user, containing a confirmation link. This process implements the so-called “double opt-in” procedure.

Unsubscribing from the newsletter is always and permanently possible by clicking on the designated link that is provided in each and every newsletter email the user receives.

MailChimp makes use of the analytics software “Google Analytics” and may integrate it into the newsletter. This website does not have any influence on, nor access to these methods.

MailChimp offers analysis metrics about how newsletter emails are being opened and read by the recipients. This website has access to these metrics, but will avoid analysis of individual or personal data as far as possible. Laws of the European Union and Germany however require portions of that data to be stored, in order to being able to legally prove a user’s subscription to the newsletter, and thus being able to defend the operators of this website against potential allegations regarding sending out unsolicited emails.

The privacy statement of MailChimp can be found here:

MailChimp is member of the so-called “Safe Harbor agreement”.
