Newsletter Privacy

Your personal data for our newsletter 

The protection of personal data is very important to us. Therefore, we handle your personal data in a highly responsible manner and do not share your information with third parties without your consent. The following privacy policy applies to your newsletter subscription:

(1) By giving your consent you can subscribe to our newsletter which we use to inform you about our current work and events. 

(2) We use the double opt-in procedure for subscribing to our newsletter. This means that after your registration we will send you an e-mail to the specified e-mail address in which we ask you to confirm that you if fact would like the newsletter to be sent. As long as you do not confirm your registration, your information will be blocked and if we do not receive confirmation, they will be deleted. In addition, we store your IP addresses and the date and time of registration and confirmation. This is to document your registration

(3) The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The indication of additional, separately marked data is voluntary and is used to make our offers more specific to you. We recommend that you provide your name in order to be able to address you personally and thus increase your protection against any counterfeit emails. After your confirmation we will save the provided data for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. (The legal basis for the above is Art. 6 Sect. 1 Sentence 1 lit. a DS-GMO [General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)].)

(4) You can rescind your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and cancel the newsletter. You can declare your cancellation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, by e-mail to E-Mail Address protected. Please enable Javascript.  or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint. After unsubscribing / revoking the newsletter, we block your contact details and delete them after 180 days, unless you have consented to the use of the data for other purposes of the IfW, for example for the invitation to events. 

(5) We anonymously measure the usage of our newsletter and the use of contained links. We use counting pixels and campaign links for that. Count pixels are small image files placed in the software code of the newsletter to capture traffic. Campaign links allow us to track whether a user has come to our website via a link in the newsletter. In both cases we can not identify the specific user. In order to deactivate the counting pixel function in the newsletter, you can deactivate the display of HTML code or images in your mail program or you can open and read the newsletter in offline mode. For the evaluation of the campaign links, we use the data protection compliant application Matomo, which you can disable for your device in our general privacy policy statement.
