Data protection "newsletter"

1. Information about the processing of your personal data when using the "Sendinblue" newsletter service

The following data protection information provides an overview of the collection and processing of your data and how you can exercise your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force on May 25, 2018, obliges us to provide you with comprehensive information about the processing of your personal data. Among other things, we inform you in detail about your rights as a "data subject" whose personal data we process.


1.2 Name and contact details of the person responsible

Responsible for data collection is: ACEP eTraining GmbH, Espellohweg 44, 22607 Hamburg, E-Mail: office.etraining@acepgroup.de, Tel.: +49 (0) 40 2263 3548 0.


3. What personal data is used?

We process your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the transmission of messages. This includes the following data categories:

  • Personal details (title, surname, first name)

  • email address


4. Where does the data come from?

We process personal data that we receive voluntarily from our customers as part of their newsletter registration.


5. Why and on what basis do we process your data?

We process your personal data in particular in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) as well as all other relevant laws.

As a service provider, Sendinblue enables us to provide our customers with important news and information quickly and with little administrative effort.

Data protection based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR)

We collect, process and transmit your data for user feedback only with your voluntarily given consent. This consent is the legal basis for the processing of this data..

We obtain consent in a so-called "double opt-in" procedure. This means that you register for our newsletter as a first step. You will then receive a confirmation e-mail in which you must also click on a link to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter. This process is uncomplicated, but still offers our customers the opportunity to think about whether they actually want to subscribe. We can therefore safely assume that you have effectively given us your consent after the two-stage process.


6. Where is your data transmitted to?

For the use of the service it is necessary that our external service provider

Sendinblue GmbH

Köpenicker Straße 126

10179 Berlin

Germany

Phone: +49 (0)30 / 311 995 10

email: support@sendinblue.com

is involved in the processing of your data. Sendinblue receives the data listed above from us in order to send our newsletter content. Use of your data for other purposes is not permitted.


7. Where is your data transmitted to?

Countries outside the European Union (and the European Economic Area (“EEA”) handle the protection of personal data differently than countries within the European Union. We therefore do not use any service providers located in third countries outside the European Union to process your data. The servers on which your data are located are hosted exclusively at locations within the Federal Republic of Germany.


8. How long is your data stored?

We store your personal data until you revoke your consent. You can do this at any time via the unsubscribe link in our newsletter emails.


9. What rights do you have in connection with the processing of your data?

Every data subject has the right to information under Article 15 GDPR, the right to rectification under Article 16 GDPR, the right to deletion under Article 17 GDPR, the right to restriction of processing under Article 18 GDPR, the right to object from Art. 21 GDPR and the right to data portability from Art. 20 GDPR.

This also applies to profiling based on this provision.

In the event of your objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
