This website uses Amazon Simple Email Service for sending newsletters. The supplier is Amazon Web Services, Inc., 410 Terry Avenue North, Seattle WA 98109, United States. Amazon Simple Email Service is a service for organizing the distribution of newsletters.

Sending our newsletters with Mailster and Amazon SES enables us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among others, we can find out how many recipients have opened the e-mail containing the newsletter and how often various links contained therein are clicked. With the help of conversion tracking, we can also analyse whether a predefined action (such as the purchase of a product on our website) takes place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. More information on how data is analysed by Mailster is available here: https://kb.mailster.co/how-does-tracking-in-mailster-work/.

YouTube with expanded data protection integration
Our website embeds videos of the website YouTube. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video.

For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited.
