5. Newsletter

Description and purpose of the data processing

On our website you have the option of subscribing to our newsletter that we send out regularly to tell you about our events, and the tickets for and invitations to these events.

We use a double opt-in procedure for those subscribing to our newsletter. This means that, after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you specified to ask you to confirm that you would like to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your subscription within 24 hours your data will automatically be deleted within 30 days. Moreover, in each case we will save your IP addresses and the timings of when you registered and confirmed your subscription. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your registration and, where applicable, to bring any possible misuse of your personal data to your attention. The only information we require to send you the newsletter is your e-mail address.

Legal basis for processing the data

The legal basis for the use of your email address for the purpose of sending the newsletter is Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR (consent).

The legal basis for the storage of your IP address and the registration date is Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR (legitimate interest). Our legitimate interest in the data processing is to determine your registration and, where applicable, to bring any possible misuse of your personal data to your attention.

Storage period

The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected. The data transmitted by the user during registration are therefore stored for as long as the newsletter subscription is active.

We store your email address for the purpose of sending out the newsletter until you revoke your consent to receiving it.

Revocation option

You may revoke your consent to the newsletter being sent at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, or by e-mailing datenschutz@premium-group.com. The consequence of revoking your consent is that the data that were collected during the registration process will be deleted.

Service provider

We have outsourced the mailing of our newsletter and the associated processing of the aforementioned data to the Pardot tool from service provider Salesforce: Salesforce.com, inc. Salesforce Tower, 415 Mission Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105, United States. Further information regarding the service provider’s privacy policy is available at: https://www.salesforce.com/company/privacy/

Newsletter performance tracking with Pardot

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending out the newsletter. To this end we use the Pardot analysis tool from salesforce.com Inc. The emails sent contain ‘web beacons’ for evaluation purposes. These are single-pixel files that are retrieved when opening the newsletter on our service provider’s server. We link the above access data and the web beacons to your e-mail address and an individual ID for the evaluations.

This information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients for technical reasons. However, it is neither our objective nor that of the service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations rather serve to help us identify our users’ reading habits and to adapt our content to suit them, or to send different content depending on our users’ interests.

You may at any time revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter and the measurement of its performance with future effect. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, or by e-mailing the contact details specified in this Privacy Policy. It is unfortunately not possible to revoke your consent purely to the analysis of the newsletter’s performance.

The information will be stored for as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter. Once you have unsubscribed we store the data in a purely statistical and anonymous way.

Furthermore, we have concluded a ‘Data Processing Agreement’ with Salesforce. This is a contract in which Salesforce commits itself to protecting our users’ data; to processing this data in compliance with the data protection stipulations in our agreement; and, in particular, not to pass the data on to third parties.

9. Our social media pages

Data processing in combination with social media

We maintain publicly accessible profiles in social networks. The individual social networks we use can be found below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter can in principle analyse your user behaviour in depth if you visit their websites or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. ‘Like’ buttons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media pages this triggers numerous processing operations relating to data protection. Specifically:

When you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media pages, the operator of the social media portal can associate this visit with your user account. Your personal data may also potentially be collected when you are not logged in, or if you do not have an account with the social media portal in question. In this case, for example, the data are collected via cookies that are stored on your end device; or through recording your IP address.

Using the data gathered in this way the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles that log your preferences and interests. In this way operators can show you interest-based advertising both within and outside of the respective social media pages. Where you have an account with the relevant social network the interest-based advertising can be shown on all devices that you are or were logged into.

Please note also that we cannot trace all processing operations on social media portals. Depending on the provider, therefore, further processing operations may potentially be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details on this please refer to the conditions of use and privacy policies of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis for the data processing

Our social media pages are designed to ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks are based, where applicable, on different legal bases that are specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR).

Responsibilities and assertion of data subject rights

When you visit one of our social media pages (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible together with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered by your visit. You may in principle assert your rights (to disclosure, rectification, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and right to appeal) to both us and the operator of the social media portal in question (e.g. Facebook).

Please note that, despite our joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence over the data processing operations carried out by the social media portals. Our options are determined by the company policy of the respective provider.

Storage period

The data we collect directly via the social media pages are deleted by our systems as soon as the purpose for which they were collected expires; or if you request the deletion; if you revoke your consent to the data being stored; or if the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the length of time your data are stored by operators of social networks for their own purposes. For further information on this please refer to the operators of social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policies, see below).
