If you want to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you have to unsubscribe from the newsletter.

Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR itself due to its own legitimate interest in the needs-based design and optimization of the service as well as for market research purposes, for example to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass them on to third parties.

To protect your data in the USA, we have concluded a data processing order ("Data Processing Agreement") with MailChimp on the basis of the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission to enable the transmission of your personal data to MailChimp. If you are interested, this data processing contract can be viewed at the following Internet address: http://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/.
