As the basis for data processing involving recipients based in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, particularly in the USA) or data transfers to such countries, Microsoft uses so-called Standard Contractual Clauses (Article 46(2) and (3) of the GDPR).

Through these clauses, Microsoft commits to maintaining the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed, and managed in the USA.

We only collect personal data if and to the extent that you provide it to us voluntarily and with your knowledge.

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The purposes of the processing are stated at the respective locations on our websites and are not subject to subsequent changes.

4. Newsletter

We offer you the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter free of charge. For this purpose, we use the email delivery service Brevo, provided by Sendinblue GmbH, located at Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin. Brevo is an email marketing tool that allows us to send customized newsletters. With Brevo, we benefit from a variety of useful features without requiring an installation. The following information informs you about the use of Brevo’s email marketing service and the relevant data protection aspects.

The newsletter service also provides us with helpful analysis options. This allows us to gather information about whether and when you opened the newsletter and which links you clicked in the newsletter. This information helps us tailor and optimize our service to meet your needs and provide you with the best possible value. In addition to the aforementioned data, information about your user behavior is also stored.

We appreciate your newsletter registration, as it enables us to provide you with up-to-date information firsthand about our company. However, please note that when you subscribe to the newsletter, all the data you enter (such as your email address, first name, and last name) is stored and managed on our server and at Brevo. This constitutes personal data. This data includes the time, date of your registration, and your IP address. By subscribing, you consent to us sending you the newsletter, and you are referred to this privacy policy. Furthermore, data such as your click behavior in the newsletter may also be processed.

The data for the newsletter tool is stored on servers in Germany. Personal data that identifies you will generally be deleted at Brevo no later than two years after the termination of the contractual relationship with us. However, you always have the option to request the individual deletion of your data. Requests will be processed within 30 days. The data we collect and transmit to Brevo will be deleted once you unsubscribe from our newsletter.

You have the option to cancel your newsletter subscription at any time by revoking your consent to receive the newsletter. This process usually takes only a few seconds or requires just one or two clicks. In most cases, you will find a link at the end of each email that allows you to unsubscribe from the newsletter. If the link is not visible in the newsletter, please contact us by email, and we will promptly terminate your newsletter subscription. After unsubscribing, personal data will be deleted from our server and from Brevo’s servers located in Germany. You have the right to free information about your stored data and, if applicable, the right to deletion, blocking, or correction.

The dispatch of our newsletter by Brevo is based on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). This means that we are only allowed to send you a newsletter if you have actively registered for it beforehand. If consent is not required, the newsletter will be sent based on our legitimate interest in direct marketing (Article 6(1)(f)), provided this is legally permissible. We log your registration process to be able to prove at any time that it complies with applicable laws.
