4.2 For the registration to our newsletter we use the so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 48 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month.

This makes it possible to perform a statistical evaluation, because we can see whether and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail were called up by the data subject.
This data is stored and evaluated by us in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given in this regard via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. We automatically interpret a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
