  • Guarantee the permanent functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our web page, and

The WALLSEC newsletters contain tracking pixels and tracking links. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in emails sent in HTML format. Tracking pixels record a log file, and in this way enable the log data to be analysed.

We can use the embedded tracking pixels and tracking links to identify whether and when you have opened an email and which of the links contained in the email you have accessed. By means of this information we can statistically evaluate our online marketing campaigns and measure their success or failure.

The basis for the statistical evaluation and analysis of the behaviour of recipients of our newsletter is our legitimate interest in continuously improving the sending of our newsletter and adjusting the newsletter content in line with the interests of our newsletter recipients. This includes the creation and evaluation of anonymised recipient profiles. The corresponding legal basis for this is Article 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.

The information collected is processed and stored by our service provider MOOSEND, a British company, whose servers are exclusively located within the EU/EEA (The Netherlands).

You can object to the newsletter tracking at any time with future effect by unsubscribing from the newsletter. There are several options available to you for this.
