Mandatory fields are marked as such because in these cases we necessarily need the data to process your contact and you cannot send the contact without providing it.

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this purpose, we also analyse your interaction with our newsletter by measuring, storing and evaluating opening rates and click-through rates for the purpose of designing future newsletter campaigns ("newsletter tracking").
For this evaluation, the emails sent contain single-pixel technologies (e.g. so-called web beacons, tracking pixels) that are stored on our website. For the evaluations, we link the following "newsletter data" in particular
the page from which the page was requested (so-called referrer URL),
the date and time of the request,
the description of the type of web browser used,
the IP address of the requesting computer,
the e-mail address,
the date and time of registration and confirmation
and the single-pixel technologies with your e-mail address or your IP address and, if applicable, an individual ID. Links contained in the newsletter may also contain this ID.
