About the data processing

You can read about how we process your data, where we save it (or have it saved), which security techniques we use and who can view the data below.

Email and mailing lists


We use MailChimp to send our email newsletters. MailChimp will never use your name and email address for its own purposes. You can find the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email sent automatically via our website. You will then no longer receive our newsletter. Your personal data is securely stored by MailChimp. MailChimp uses cookies and other internet technologies to provide insight into whether emails are opened and read. MailChimp reserves the right to use your data to make further improvements to services and, in that context, to share information with third parties.

Microsoft Outlook

We use Microsoft Outlook services for our regular corporate email traffic. This party has taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent abuse, loss or corruption of your and our data as much as possible. Microsoft does not have access to our mailbox, and we treat all our email traffic with the strictest confidence.
