To finance our prizes, participants give their consent to receive direct mail and advertising.
Upon receiving consent (DOI) your personal data will be used for advertising purposes. This includes email, post, SMS and/or telephone marketing. In such a case we store your personal data for use under GDPR compliance.
When submitting your DOI the time and date of participation and details entered are collected. This is required for entry and enables you to participate in the specific service.
Metadata is collected at the time of consent to advertising and is used for logging, and if necessary, used as proof you have given permission and the time and date of consent. We are required to log this information under GDPR regulations. Due to this, the collected metadata is not stored anonymously, but stored with the personal data.
3.1.4. Suppression lists
We hold a suppression list to prevent any further advertising being sent. Your personal data will be stored to prove your consent, however, will not be used for advertising purposes.
3.1.5. Statistics and enrichment
Once an advertising email is sent, statistical data is collected. This statistical data includes the number of opens of the advertising email and the number of links clicked within the advertising email. This data is assigned to each individual email address.
Our partners receive statistics about the advertising campaign containing information such as the number of opens and clicks. These statistics are anonymous and cannot therefore be linked to personal data to allow identification. These statistics are vital for quality control, pricing and invoicing.
3.1.6. Legal basis
In accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 a, b, c and f and article 22 paragraphs 2 and 3 of the General Data Protection Regulation the processing of your person data is permitted. We do not collect or process communication data without your agreement of this data protection declaration.
Statistics and enrichment as described under 3.1.3. in particular do not take place without your prior consent. It is of legitimate interest for the enrichment of personal data amongst other things, ensuring advertising is targeted to people that are more interested in receiving the information, and ensuring recipients are not ‘spammed’ with irrelevant information. It is also important to us and our advertisers as it affects the cost per click and success rate.
The legal basis for logging the electronically issued declaration of consent, including communication metadata, includes, among others, section 13 Paragraph 2 Sentence 2 Telemedia Act (TMG), section 7 UWG and Article 7 Paragraph 1 DSG-VO in conjunction with section 51 Paragraph 1 BDSG.
