Zoho Newsletter & Download form
On our website, functions of the Zoho Campaigns service are integrated. These functions are provided by Zoho Corporation, 4141 Hacienda Drive, Pleasanton, California 94588, USA. Our direct contractual partner is Zoho Corporation B.V., Hoogoorddreef 15, 1101 BA Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and is therefore fully subject to European data protection law.
By registering for our newsletter, your data will be automatically transferred to our account at Zoho Campaigns, from where we send our newsletter. In addition, we store your data automatically in our CRM system (also from Zoho) to manage the business relationship with you. If you download one of our white papers, your data (name, e-mail) is also transferred to our Zoho Campaigns and CRM account. The newsletter that is then sent via Zoho Campaigns contains a so-called tracking pixel, also called a web beacon. With the help of this pixel, we can evaluate whether and when you have read our newsletter and whether you have followed any links to further information contained in the newsletter. In addition to other technical data, such as the data of your computer system and your IP address, the data processed in the process is stored so that we can optimize our newsletter offer and respond to the interests of our subscribers. The data is thus used to increase the quality and attractiveness of our newsletter offer.
In addition, we use Zoho's CRM system to organize our business contacts as well as our commercial activities such as contract management with customers and suppliers. For this purpose, we store personal data on Zoho's systems.
