The scope of how we collect and process personal and non-personal data on you or other information depends on the way you get in touch with us or our technologies and services:

· as a publisher or an advertiser of the Admitad affiliate network;

We use personal data only for administering and providing our technologies and services. We store personal and any other kind of data strictly in compliance with applicable data protection and privacy legislation and our contractual duties, and will prevent unauthorized access to data to the best of our abilities.
With the following information, we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch, statistical evaluation procedure and your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt of the newsletter and the procedures described.
We send out newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter “Newsletter”) subject to the consent of the recipient or a legal permission.
The registration for our newsletter is handled through a so-called double opt-in procedure, which means you will receive an e-mail after your registration, in which you will be asked to confirm your registration once again. The registrations for the newsletter are recorded in order to prove the accurate registration process according to legal requirements. This includes storing the time of logon and confirmation. Furthermore, changes to the data stored by Mindbox are being recorded.
The newsletters can be sent by Admitad itself or by means of third-party service named “Mindbox”.
Mindbox is a newsletter platform of the Dutch company Mindbox.Cloud B.V. (a Dutch private limited company) // Strawinskylaan 613, 1077XX Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as further data described in the context of this information, are being stored on the servers of Admitad and Mindbox. Mindbox use this information to send out and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. In addition, Mindbox can use this data to optimize or improve their own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come from. However, Mindbox does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them independently or transfer data to third parties except in cases prescribed by Mindbox personal data policy (https://mindbox.cloud/documents/policy/).
In order to register for the newsletter, we only need your e-mail address. Further voluntarily provided information about you is only used to personalize the newsletter. You can change your data at any time.
There are cases when we direct the newsletter recipients to the Mindbox websites. For instance, our newsletters contain a link with which the newsletter recipients can access the newsletters online (for example, in the case of display problems in the e-mail program).
You may terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, which means you revoke your consent. Therewith your consent to the dispatch of the newsletter via Mindbox as well as the statistical analyses expires at the same time. A separate cancellation of the dispatch via Mindbox or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. You may withdraw your consent to receive our newsletter at any time by changing the notification settings in your account. Besides, you will find a link to unsubscribe from our newsletter at the bottom of each newsletter.
