(5) Our Newsletters are sent via "MailChimp", a newsletter mailing platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp may use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimization of sending and presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes 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 pass them on to third parties.
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of MailChimp when the newsletter is opened. In the context of this retrieval, technical information such as browser and system information as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times.
Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. These evaluations are only used to identify the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
2. Usage-based information (targeting and retargeting)
We use so-called retargeting technologies to tailor our online marketing more specifically to your interests and needs. For this purpose, your interests in our services are stored in cookies. These cookies are used in order to be able to provide you with further information that is as interest-related as possible. This is done anonymously, i.e. you cannot be identified via retargeting.
If you do not want mediaman to collect, store and analyze the information about your visit and adjust it to your interests, you can object to this at any time for the future (opt-out).
The technical implementation takes place in your browser by means of an opt-out cookie. This cookie only serves to assign your objection. Please note that an opt-out cookie can only be used for the browser from which it was set. If you delete the cookies or use a different browser or terminal device, you will have to opt out again for technical reasons.
