B) Newsletter
If you give your explicit consent to receiving newsletters, we can send you an electronic newsletter with commercial content for marketing purposes. The data provided when a user registers for the newsletter are only used for the purpose of newsletter distribution. The data collected from you for this purpose are only saved by us and our partners for the period for which you receive a newsletter and provided you have not notified us of the withdrawal of your consent to the receipt of newsletters.
In some cases, our newsletter is sent out not by us but by our partner (= Processor), Outline Pictures e.U.

No newsletter shall be sent if consent is not given.
