This website may offer users the ability to subscribe to a newsletter. The form used for this purpose determines what personal data is transmitted.
RIS AG informs its customers and business partners regularly through a newsletter about company news and offers. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address registered by a data subject when signing up for a newsletter following the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to prove whether the data subject who signed up for the newsletter is the owner of the email address specified during registration.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject as well as the then-current date and time. The collection of this data is necessary to understand the (possible) misuse of the email address of a data subject at a later date, and it, therefore, serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of newsletter registration will only be used to send our newsletter. Also, newsletter subscribers may be informed by email, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties.
The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. A corresponding link is found in each newsletter. Alternatively, the un-subscription may be communicated to the controller in a different way.
The newsletter of RIS AG may contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature image embedded in such emails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, RIS AG may see if and when an email was opened by a data subject, and which links in the email were clicked by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the newsletter tracking pixels are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. RIS AG automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
