5. INFORMATION AND NESLETTER SERVICES


Subscribing to and unsubscribing from (objection) our newsletter and information services
The website of Frankfurter Buchmesse GmbH offers its visitors the possibility to subscribe to the information and newsletter services of our company. The volume and nature of personal data transmitted during the subscription process to the particular information or newsletter service depends on the input mask you use. Frankfurter Buchmesse GmbH informs its customers and business partners about the offers of the company in regular intervals by means of information and newsletter services. The information and newsletter services of our company can generally be received by the interested parties only if (1) they have a valid e-mail account and (2) they have registered for information or newsletter services. We rely on the “double opt-in” process. For legal reasons, a confirmation is sent to the e-mail address that was entered by the person registering for the first time for the information or newsletter service. This confirmation e-mail is sent out to confirm that the owner of the e-mail address, as the data subject, has authorised the receipt of the information and/or newsletter service. If you register for the information and/or newsletter services, we will also store the IP address that the internet service provider (ISP) has assigned to the computer system that was used by you at the time of the registration, including the date and the time of the log-in. It is necessary to collect these data to be able to track any possible abuse of your e-mail address at a later point of time and thus serves the legal protection of those responsible for the processing of the data. The personal data gathered during the subscription of the information and newsletter services are used only for providing our informations and newsletter services. Furthermore, subscribers of information and newsletter services can be notified by e-mail if this should be necessary for the operation of the information and/or newsletter service or if a registration is required, e.g. in the case of changes to the information and newsletter services or changes of the technology. The personal data that is gathered within the scope of the information and newsletter services will not be disclosed to third parties. The data subject may at any time cancel the subscription to our information and newsletter services. He or she may at any time withdraw the consent to the storage of personal data that was given for the purpose of using the information and newsletter services. Each information and newsletter service offers a link specifically for the withdrawal of the consent.


Newsletter tracking
The information and newsletter services offered by Frankfurter Buchmesse GmbH contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in the HTML format and it permits log file recording and log file analysis. This enables the statistical interpretation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. By means of the embedded tracking pixel, Frankfurter Buchmesse GmbH can identify if an e-mail was opened by a user and when it was opened and which of the links contained in the e-mail were accessed by the user. The data gathered by means of these tracking pixels that are contained in the information and newsletter services are stored and analysed by us in order to optimise the mailings and to better adapt the content of future information and newsletter services to the preferences of the client. These personal data are not conveyed to third parties. The data subjects may at any time withdraw the consent that they have given separately by means of the “double opt-in” process. Following the revocation, these personal data are deleted. Unsubscribing from the information and newsletter services will be treated automatically as revocation by Frankfurter Buchmesse GmbH.
