You have the right to withdraw this at any time. To do so, simply send an informal e-mail to email@example.com. You will find the link for withdrawal at the end of each press release. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of any processing, carried out on the basis of the original consent, until the withdrawal has been received.
The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. The aforementioned information is stored for up to three years, to the end of the year, upon withdrawal of the declaration of consent. During this time, you will not receive any newsletters and your email address will no longer be used to send the newsletter.
The registration process is logged and stored according to Art. 6 I lit. c EU_GDPR, for the fulfilment of our accountability obligations according to Art. 5 II EU-GDPR as well as for the defence of legal claims that depend on the proof of consent.
