The above-mentioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:
If pursuant to article 6, Para. 1 p. 1 lit. a, of the GDPR [DSGVO], you have given your express consent, we will use your e-mail address for the regular mailing of our newsletter. Simply submitting your e-mail address is sufficient information for receiving the newsletter.
If you have visited our website, purchased goods or services, and provided your e-mail address during this process, it can consequently be used by us for the mailing newsletters. In such a case, the newsletter is limited exclusively to direct marketing for our own similar goods or services. The legal basis for the transmission of the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services in such a case is § 7 Para. 3 case. 3 of the Act Against Unfair Competition [UWG] in conjunction with 6, Para. 1 p. 1 lit.f of the GDPR [DSGVO].
De-registration/un-subscribing is possible at any time, regardless of whether the transmission of the newsletter is based on consent or statutory authorization, for example, via a link at the end of every newsletter. Alternatively, you may also send your "un-subscribe request" at any time to the following e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org No additional costs are incurred for this process, over and above the transmission costs in accordance with the basic tariffs.
The data required for the transmission of the newsletter will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for this purpose, and no other statutory reasons for further processing exists. Your e-mail address is stored only as long as required for the transmission of the newsletter, i.e. until you withdraw your consent or object to receiving the newsletter.

We put Shariff buttons on our website for social media networks [LinkedIn]. These buttons are simple HTML Links. This is done in the context of the Shariff solution. The Shariff solution retrieves a script, for example, how often the share button on a page is pressed: to do this, the script uses the programming interfaces to make contact with the social network and retrieves the data. Your personal data will not be transferred in this process. Instead of your IP address, only our server address is transmitted to Facebook, Google and Twitter. You will only be directly in contact with Facebook, Google or Twitter when you become active. Prior to his, social networks will not be able to collect your personal data. As long as you do not press a link, to share content, you remain invisible to the social networks. Once you click on the link, the responsibility for the collection and processing of data no longer vests with us, but with the operator of the social network.
