At the end of each newsletter, you will find a link that allows you to unsubscribe at any time. As part of the unsubscription, you can voluntarily inform us of the reason for the unsubscription.

The dispatch service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes.
