possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links,
if any, have been clicked on. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also
be analysed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has
taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. In addition, technical information
is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The
data is collected exclusively in pseudonymised form and is not linked to your other
personal data; direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for
the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be
used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
