How we collect information

For our newsletter, we only collect information through a form completed by a subscriber, containing his/her name and email address.


We use the software MailChimp for creating and sending the newsletter. MailChimp is operated by The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA. If you subscribe to our newsletter via our website, confirm your membership in an email list from MailChimp by email. MailChimp saves the date of registration, your IP address, your email address and your name. When you sign up for our newsletter, you provide the personal data mentioned and give us the right to contact you by email. We use the data stored as part of the registration for the newsletter exclusively for our newsletter and to ensure the MailChimp functions (such as evaluation of the newsletter) and do not pass them on. MailChimp also shares information with third parties to provide better services. MailChimp also shares some data with third-party advertising partners in order to better understand the interests and concerns of your customers so that more relevant content and targeted advertising can be provided. So-called “web beacons” (small graphics in HTML emails) enable MailChimp to determine whether the email has arrived, whether it has been opened and whether links have been clicked. All this information is stored on the MailChimp servers. MailChimp may also use this data to improve its own service.
