Statistical collection and analysis – the newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of the shipping service provider upon opening the newsletter. During its retrieval, technical information is collected, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of access. This information is used for technical improvement of services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of access location (identifiable with the help of the IP address) or the access times. A further part of the statistical surveys is the determination whether or not the newsletter is opened and which links are clicked. This information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients for technical reasons. But it is neither our intention nor that of the shipping service provider to monitor individual users. The analysis of personal tracking helps us much more to recognise the reading habits of our users and adapt our content to them or to provide different content in accordance with the interests of our users.
