Description of the processing

The processing of your data serves exclusively the dispatch of the newsletter. In addition to interesting information on the topics of digital real estate management, this newsletter naturally also contains information on our services and offers.

If you register to receive our newsletter, we store only your email address. You can voluntarily provide further information that will enable us to address a specific target group. This gives you the option of using the service pseudonymously.

After your registration, your data will be forwarded, at first briefly, to our service provider Mailchimp to send you a confirmation mail. This mail is part of our double opt-in process which serves to prevent misuse of your e-mail address as well as to fulfill our accountability obligations. For this purpose, the date of registration and the IP address from which the registration was created are stored. After we receive your confirmation, your data will be stored by the service provider until revoked.

Why two consents and why Mailchimp?

According to the case law of the ECJ (judgment of 16.07.2020, Ref.: C-311/18 ("Schrems II")), there is no adequate level of data protection in the USA. Furthermore, government surveillance measures may occur in the USA, where no adequate legal protection can be claimed against these measures. The data processing in the USA in connection with our newsletter is in this respect based on your consent within the meaning of Art. 49 (1) a) GDPR. In order to grant a maximum degree of transparency, a separate consent to these risks by you is necessary.

In the context of the above-mentioned case law, we have of course also examined the move to a European alternative. However, in the course of the selection process, we unfortunately discovered some significant security and functional deficiencies as well as the use of numerous US service providers as subcontractors. For these reasons, we have decided to refrain from switching for the time being.

Through Mailchimp itself, the following personal data is stored:

- Date of the last profile update
- Language (The data comes from Mailchimp, usually this is not detected. Unfortunately, this function cannot be deactivated for us).
- Location of the client used (The data comes from Mailchimp based on the IP address used. For us, unfortunately, this function can not be disabled).
- Preferred email client (The data comes from Mailchimp (determined from the opt-in email) Unfortunately, this function cannot be deactivated for us).
- Preferred email format (HTML / Plaintext Unfortunately, this function cannot be deactivated for us).
