6. Newsletter

Inxmail

We use Inxmail technologies to distribute email newsletters automatically. These can be ordered on the website or on a newsletter card made available at events. As you subscribe for our newsletter, we collect personal data, e.g. your name and email address. We use such data exclusively for mailing the requested information and will not pass them on to third parties. 

Purpose and content of the newsletter

We mail electronic newsletters (“newsletters” below) with advertising information to users who have explicitly consented by subscribing to the newsletter and confirming their email address. If the content of the newsletter is described in concrete terms in the context of subscription, this is decisive for the user’s consent to the receipt of the newsletter. Otherwise, our newsletters contain information on new products, background information on BIO PLANÈTE, recipes and DIY ideas, raffles, vouchers and a lot more!

Subscription logging

Subscription to the newsletter is not complete without successful confirmation of the email address by the recipient. For this purpose the recipient will receive a double-opt-in mail with a confirmation link after sending the newsletter subscription form or filling the newsletter card/form. Only by activating the confirmation link is the subscription to the newsletter completed.
The date and time at which the confirmation link is activated, the activating user’s IP address and the recipient’s email address are stored in a log file as proof of the valid consent to the receipt of the newsletter.

User’s subscription data

The user’s email address is sufficient for subscription to the newsletter. Voluntary information such as salutation, first name and surname is used exclusively to personalize the newsletter. When subscribing to the Inxmail newsletter, the user explicitly consents to the collection, storage and processing of the data entered for the mailing of the newsletter. Data entered into the newsletter subscription form are processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Paragraph 1(a) of the GDPR).

Information on the analysis of usage patterns

All our newsletters use anonymized tracking, meaning that the recipient’s responses (opening of a mailing, clicking on text and image links, downloading of pictures using an email program) are registered and stored in anonymized form for statistical purposes. Tracking stored data back to individual users is not possible without their explicit consent. If you have given your consent to the receipt of a newsletter that is tailored to your interests and to the use of personalized user profiles, we will use in particular your email address and your name for newsletter mailing.

Subject to your consent we record your use patterns on the websites and newsletters linked to www.bioplanete.com. Analysis of user behavior includes in particular in which sections of those websites or newsletters you browse and which links you activate there. In the process, personalized usage profiles attributed to your person and/or your email address are created to better tailor our advertising activities, in particular in the form of newsletters and print advertising, to your personal interests and to improve our web services. You may at any time revoke your consent to the receipt of the newsletter or to the creation of personalized user profiles for the future, e.g. by unsubscribing from our newsletter on our website. The Unsubscribe link is found at the end of every newsletter. Revocation results in the deletion of the user data collected.

Cancellation/revocation

Users may cancel the newsletter at any time and thereby revoke their consent to the receipt of the newsletter. With that, any consent that may have been given to personalized tracking in the newsletter expires as well. Users can also revoke their consent to the storage and processing of personal user responses without effect on their consent to receipt of the newsletter. To unsubscribe from the newsletter or to revoke one’s consent to the storage and processing of personal user responses it is sufficient to send an email to newsletter@bioplanete.com.
Moreover, users can cancel the newsletter or revoke their consent to the storage and processing of personal user responses themselves by activating the Unsubscribe link or Objection link contained in every newsletter.


7. Plugins and tools

YouTube

Our website uses plugins of YouTube, a website operated by Google. The site operator is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube server will be established and the YouTube server will be informed which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged in to your YouTube account you enable YouTube to attribute your browsing pattern directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
The use of YouTube serves the attractive presentation of our online services. This is a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 Paragraph 1(f) of the GDPR.

8. Liability

Liability for content

The content of our pages was prepared with the utmost care. However, we do not assume liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of such content. Pursuant to Section 7 Sub-section 1 of the TMG (German teleservices act) we are responsible for our own content on these pages under general law. Pursuant to Sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, however, we as service providers are under no obligation to supervise transferred or stored third-party information or to search for circumstances indicating illegal activities. This is without prejudice to obligations to remove, or block the use of, information under general law. Liability in that respect is only possible from the time a concrete violation of law became known to us. As soon as we become aware of any relevant violation of the law we will of course remove such content immediately.

Liability for links

Our pages include links to external third-party websites the content of which is beyond our influence. Therefore we do not assume any liability for such third-party content. The content of linked pages is always the responsibility of the provider or operator of such pages. The linked pages have been checked for possible violations of law at the time when the link was established. No illegal content was recognizable at the time of linking. Permanent control of the content of linked pages, however, is unreasonable unless concrete indications of a violation of law exist. If we become aware of any violations of law we will of course remove such links immediately.
