Communication by e-mail
If you send us a message by e-mail, we store your message with the sender data transmitted with it (name, e-mail address and if necessary other information added by your e-mail program and the transmitting servers). To receive, store and send e-mails, we use an e-mail provider who acts for us as a processor in accordance with Article 28 GDPR.
The legal basis for this data processing is our legitimate interest in being able to answer your message and also to respond to any follow-up questions you may have (Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR).
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

The mailings to the OPIN community will be send out occasionally, approximately every two to four months.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
