newsletter

If you have expressly consented according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a DSGVO, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletters on a regular basis. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address. The indication of further, separately marked data is voluntary and is used to be able to address you personally.

You can unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you are welcome to send your unsubscription request at any time to duesseldorf@hoffmannliebs.de by e-mail.

If you have given your consent, we will evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this analysis, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which represent single-pixel image files stored on our website. We link the data collected automatically when you visit our website (see “Collection of personal data when you visit our website” above) and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. With the data obtained in this way, we create a user profile to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. We record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them and deduce your personal interests. We link this data to actions taken by you on our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GMO.

You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by informing us of another contact method. The information is stored for as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After a cancellation we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.

you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO to the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO being necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have a predominant interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data in the event that a legal obligation exists for disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, as well as this is legally permissible and is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO.
