Newsletter dispatch

You are invited to subscribe to our newsletter, which is sent by MailChimp. This is a newsletter distribution platform of the U.S. provider Rocket Science Group, LLC. We need your e-mail address to send the newsletter. We use this data to advertise our products and services as long as you have not revoked your consent to receive the newsletter.
After subscribing to the newsletter you will receive an e-mail from MailChimp asking you to confirm your subscription. This is necessary to prevent people with foreign e-mail addresses from registering for the newsletter.

The data provided by you when registering for the newsletter will be transmitted to MailChimp and stored on MailChimp servers in the United States of America. MailChimp uses this data both to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf and to optimize its own services. The newsletters sent by MailChimp are provided with "web-beacons". Web-beacons are single-pixel image files that transfer information to MailChimp such as time of the newsletter retrieval, your IP address, and your browser. This information is used exclusively for group-related statistical surveys and analyses, which serve the technical improvement of the newsletter distribution. Further information on data protection at MailChimp can be found here: You may unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time by contacting us via e-mail ( and initiating the deletion of your customer account, or by clicking on the link to unsubscribe which you will find at the end of each newsletter.

Communicating with us via an MS Forms form.

For event registration or content feedback, we sometimes use a form on Microsoft Forms, a universal survey tool in MS Office 365, after personal invitation.

To request the possibility to participate in an event, we collect title, name, email address, company and the possibility to participate (yes / maybe / no). For content-related feedback, we collect comments without specific personal data.

The transfer of data in this way is voluntary. We use this data exclusively for the purpose stated in each case:

  • the organization of an event and the sending of information about it
  • Processing advisory topics on the basis of your feedback.

The data you enter in the MS Forms form will be transferred to Microsoft and processed on Microsoft servers in the EU. Therefore, when transmitting your content to us, Microsoft processes the technical data of your network connection, operating system and browser software used.

We have concluded an order processing agreement with Microsoft Ireland. The processor is then Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd, One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland. For the portion of data transferred to third country servers at Microsoft for processing, we have entered into a processor agreement with Microsoft Corporation ,One Microsoft Way, Redmond, Washington, 98052-6399, USA based on the EU standard contractual clauses.

The legal basis for this processing is always your consent according to Art. 6 para. (1) sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO.
