Further, the Mailchimp server also collects data as to whether the recipients opened the email, when they opened it and which links they clicked. We exclusively collect this data for statistical purposes and to adapt the content of our marketing communications to our customers’ preferences and provide a better service. We do not create user profiles based on this data.

Additionally, we may continue to process such data if permitted based on another pertinent legal basis, including a legal obligation (e.g., statutory law, court order or order of an authority, etc.) pursuant to Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. c) GDPR.

However, this data is neither collected on our behalf nor otherwise controlled or used by us; therefore, we are neither legally obliged nor able to give you any information on what data will be collected if you click on such a link.

Providing we select and use data processors in compliance with the provisions of the GDPR and other applicable data protection law, we deem that we have a legitimate interest for the use of third parties as data processors. 

6. Transfer of Personal Data to Third Countries 

In some cases, we transfer, or will transfer, your personal data to countries outside the EU or the European Economic Area.  

We may transfer personal data to our U.S. affiliates pursuant to the EU – U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (as explained in Section 1 (Who We Are) above), as well as to the third-party service providers who collect and process personal data on our behalf (see also Section 4.1 and Section 5), located in the U.S., pursuant to our data processing agreements with them also incorporating standard contractual clauses for transfer of personal data outside the EU.
