We send our customers regular information on Jimdo’s products, services, promotions, surveys, prize draws, blog articles, and other similar content in the form of a newsletter sent by email. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the unsubscribe link contained in every newsletter. We process certain data in connection with this when we send and analyze the success of our newsletter.

We may reconstruct individual functionalities (such as using behavioral data) of our newsletter to understand which content in our newsletter is particularly interesting to Jimdo Users. We will only use the results of these analyses for the purposes of improving our services and designing our services to better meet your requirements as well as for targeting purposes. The newsletter therefore contains a “web beacon”, which is a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server, or, if applicable, the server of an analysis service provider when the newsletter is opened. Technical information, such as browser and system information, as well as IP address and the time of the retrieval is collected as part of this process. This information is used to improve the technical performance of our services using the technical data, or the target groups and reading behavior based on the access location (which can be determined using the IP address), or the time of access. Statistical data that is also collected includes determining whether the newsletter has been opened, when it was opened, how long it was opened for, and which links were clicked on. From a technical perspective, it may be possible to assign this information to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not our goal to analyze individual users. Rather, these analyses help us to adapt and aggregate our content as needed.

You may object to or withdraw your consent to the storage and usage of your data for sending the newsletter at any time with future effect without needing to give reasons, without being penalized in any way, and without paying any cost for this other than the transmission costs for sending the objection/withdrawal. This can be done by clicking the unsubscribe link in the newsletter, which can be found at the end of every newsletter. Alternatively, you can deselect the “Newsletter” box in your customer account.

Your consent to statistical analysis will also be withdrawn at the same time. It is not possible to only object to the statistical analysis in our newsletter, this can only take place when completely unsubscribing from the newsletter. The lawfulness of the data processing operations remains unaffected by the withdrawal of your consent. In the event that you withdraw your consent, the personal data used for this data processing will be anonymized or erased. Data that we store for other purposes (such as email addresses for the member area) is not affected by this.

To do this we process contact data, newsletter form HTTP data, newsletter subscription data, newsletter tracking pixel data, and newsletter profile data.

The legal basis for sending the newsletter in connection with a purchase of Jimdo’s goods or services is section 7 (3) German Competition Act (UWG). It is also possible to send the Jimdo newsletter on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). We transfer your data to the following categories of recipients as part of this processing: Newsletter dispatch service providers, newsletter analysis service providers.

Negative payment experiences from the time the main claim was handed over, together with dunning charges or any bad debts, are also shared with cooperating credit agencies (debt collection registration) if the other legal requirements are met.
