Why am I being asked to accept cookies?

Compliance of New EU cookie law (e-Privacy Directive) 28th May 2012. On May 26th 2011 a new EU originated law came into effect, on May 28th 2012 the law came into force. The law requires website owners to make significant changes to their sites and may fundamentally change the whole web browsing and shopping experience for everybody. This Cookie Law is amended privacy legislation that requires websites to obtain informed consent from visitors before they can store or retrieve any information on a computer or any other web connected device.

Cookie Compliance

Cookies are used by almost all websites, for a variety of purposes:- Analysis of visitor behaviour (known as ‘Analytics’) 

•To personalise pages and remember visitor preferences.

•To manage shopping carts in online stores

•To track people across websites and deliver targeted advertising 

Information Automatically Logged

I use your IP address to gather broad demographic information. We use Google Analytics to collect information about Browser type, Operating platform, Search engine used to locate our site, Time, Day, Month, Year etc.

How I use Cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

I use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps me analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help me provide you with a better website, by enabling me to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives me access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with me.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Contact Form

My site uses a contact form for customers to request information and services. I collect contact information (like their email address). Contact information from the contact form is used to contact the person making the form submission.

Information about the newsletter and consent

With the following information, I will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to my newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.

Content of the newsletter

I send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are authoritative for the consent of the users. Incidentally, my newsletters contain information on yoga retreats, yoga workshops, yoga classes, hypnobirthing sessions (this may in particular include references to blog posts, lectures, my services or online presence).

Double opt-in and logging

The registration for my newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with third-party e-mail addresses. The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Similarly, the changes to your data stored with MailChimp will be logged.

Use of the email marketing service provider “MailChimp”

The newsletter is distributed via “MailChimp”, a newsletter shipping platform of Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

The e-mail addresses of my Newsletter recipients, as well as their other information described herein, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of my newsletter recipients to write them down or to pass them on to third parties.

I rely on the reliability, IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU “Privacy Shield” and is committed to complying with EU data protection requirements. Furthermore, I have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp pledges to protect the data of my users, to process it in accordance with its privacy policy on our behalf and, in particular, not to disclose it to third parties. The privacy policy of MailChimp can be viewed here.

To sign up for the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address.

Optionally, I ask you to provide your first and last name. This information is only for the personalisation of the newsletter.

Statistical survey and analyses

The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.

Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither my desire nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognise the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Online call and data management

There are cases in which I direct the newsletter recipients to the MailChimp websites. For example, my newsletters contain a link that allows newsletter recipients to retrieve newsletters online (for example, in the case of display problems in the e-mail program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can store their data, such as correct the e-mail address later. Similarly, the privacy policy of MailChimp is only available on their page.

In this context, I pointed out that on the websites of MailChimp cookies are used and thus personal data processed by MailChimp, their partners and service providers used (for example, Google Analytics). I have no influence on this data collection. For more information, see the privacy policy of MailChimp.

Termination / Revocation

You can terminate the receipt of my newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to sending it via MailChimp and the statistical analyses will lapse. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.

A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.

Legal basis: General Data Protection Regulation

In accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will apply from 25 May 2018, I inform you that the consent to the sending of e-mail addresses is in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 7 GDPR and § 7 (2) no. 3 and (3) UWG (Law against Unfair Competition). The use of the mail service provider MailChimp, carrying out the statistical surveys and analyses as well as logging the registration process, are based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. I am interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our non-profit interests and the expectations of our users.

We further point out that you can object to the future processing of your personal data at any time, in accordance with the statutory requirements of Art. 21 GDPR. The objection may in particular be made against processing for direct marketing purposes.
