Newsletter – shipping service provider
The newsletter is sent by the shipping service provider Newsletter2Go GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126
The shipping service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve their own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of shipping and the presentation of newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of my newsletter recipients to write them down or to pass the data on to third parties.
Newsletter – Success Measurement
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server when opening the newsletter from my server, or if I use a shipping service provider. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval.
This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither my intention, nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve me much more to recognize the reading habits of my users and to adapt my content to them or to send different content according to the interests of my users.
