ActiveCampaign is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.
With the help of ActiveCampaign we can analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an e-mail sent with ActiveCampaign, a file included in the e-mail (known as web beacon) connects to ActiveCampaign servers in the United States. This way you can determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. They are used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the interests of the recipient.
If you do not want analysis by ActiveCampaign, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.
Data processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data deposited with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us from the newsletter until it is removed from the newsletter and, after unsubscribing from the newsletter, deleted both from our servers and from the servers of ActiveCampaign. Data stored for other purposes with us (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
