Demographic Characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the „demographic characteristics“ function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that the newsletter is sent in a consensual manner. In the course of this, the potential recipient can be included in a mailing list. The user then receives a confirmation e-mail with the opportunity to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner. The address will only be actively included in the mailing list if the confirmation is received.
We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and offers. The newsletter is created and sent in a personalized way. In order to be able to offer regional offers and new products, we need your zip code and your location.

Data Analysis by SendInBlue
With the help of SendInBlue it is possible for us to analyze our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links were clicked particularly often.
We can also see whether certain previously defined actions were carried out after opening/clicking (conversion rate). For example, we can see whether you made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter.
SendInBlue also enables us to subdivide („cluster“) the newsletter recipients according to different categories. The newsletter recipients can be divided according to age, gender or place of residence, for example. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.
Detailed information on the functions of SendInBlue can be found in the following link: https://de.sendinblue.com/.
The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Newsletter2Go after you have canceled the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members‘ area) remain unaffected.
