References and links
In case of direct or indirect links to other websites (“hyperlinks”) that are not the responsibility of Lindenbaum GmbH, a liability obligation would come into force if Lindenbaum GmbH knew the contents and if it was technologically possible and acceptable for Lindenbaum GmbH to prevent use in case of illegal content. Lindenbaum GmbH hereby states explicitly that there was no illegal content to be found on the linked pages when the links were set. Lindenbaum GmbH has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of linked pages. Therefore Lindenbaum GmbH distances itself explicitly from all content on all linked pages that were modified after the links were set. This statement applies to all links and references on our own website and to all external entries in visitor books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by Lindenbaum GmbH. Illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular any damage resulting from use or non-use of information provided in such a way is the sole responsibility of the provider of the page to which the links refer, and not of the persons who simply refer to the respective publication via links.
Copyright and trademark law
All contents and structures of this website are protected by copyright and performance protection. Publication on the world wide web or other internet services does not signify consent for other use by third parties. Any use not permitted by German copyright law requires prior written permission from Lindenbaum GmbH.
Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer must be viewed as part of the internet site that linked to this page. If parts or individual wording of this text are not, no longer, or not completely in line with current law, the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected in terms of their content and validity.
With the following information we inform you about the content of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.
Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the content of a newsletter is concretely described in the context of an application for the newsletter, it is decisive for the consent of the user. Incidentally, our newsletters contain information about our services and us.
Double opt-in and logging: Registration for our newsletter is done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. That After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses. The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the logon and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider will be logged.
Credentials: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to give a name in the newsletter for personal address.
The dispatch of the newsletter and the related performance measurement is based on a consent of the recipients acc. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO in connection with § 7 Abs. 2 Nr. 3 UWG or on the basis of the legal permission acc. § 7 Abs. 3 UWG.
The logging of the registration process is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We are interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests as well as meeting the expectations of users and allows us to provide consent.
Termination / Withdrawal - You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie. Revoke your consent. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter. We may save the submitted email addresses for up to three years based on our legitimate interests before we delete them to provide prior consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for cancellation is possible at any time, provided that at the same time the former existence of a consent is confirmed.
Newsletter – Mailchimp
The shipping service provider may retrieve the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve their own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of shipping and the presentation of newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to address them themselves or to pass the data on to third parties.
Newsletter – Measuring Success
The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server when opening the newsletter from our server, or if we use a shipping service provider. As part of this call, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of the call are collected.
This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize 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.
