Insofar as the contents of the Newsletter are specifically described in the context of a registration, they shall be decisive for the consent of the users. Apart from that, our newsletters contain information about our projects, offers, campaigns and our association.

8.3 Double-Opt-In and logging: The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other e-mail addresses.

9. Integration of services and contents of third parties

9.1 We use content or service offers of third party providers within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use content or services offered by third-party providers in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content"). This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, since without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. We strive to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as be linked to such information from other sources.

9.2 The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, along with links to their data protection statements, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in part already mentioned here, options for objection (so-called opt-out):

9.3 External fonts from Google, Inc, www.google.com/fonts ("Google Fonts"). The integration of Google Fonts is done by a server call at Google (usually in the USA). Privacy policy: www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: www.google.com/settings/ads/.

9.4 External code of the JavaScript framework "jQuery", provided by the third-party provider jQuery Foundation, jquery.org.

9.5 Use of ajax.googleapis.com/ jQuery: On this site, we use Ajax and jQuery technologies, which results in optimization of loading speeds. In this regard, program libraries are called from Google servers. Google's CDN (content delivery network) is used. If you have previously used jQuery on another page from the Google CDN, your browser will fall back to the cached copy. If this is not the case, this will require a download, whereby data from your browser will be sent to Google!Inc. ("Google"). Your data will be transferred to the USA.

10.1 Users have the right to receive, upon request and free of charge, information about the personal data that we have stored about them.
