22.10. Newsletter recipients can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke their consent. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter. At the same time, their consent to the performance measurement expires. A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in which case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled. When you unsubscribe from the newsletter, your personal data will be deleted, unless their storage is legally required or justified, in which case their processing will be limited to these exceptional purposes only. In particular, we may store the unsubscribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete them for the purposes of sending the newsletter, in order to be able to prove that we have previously given our consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time.
