Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 para. 1 lit. a of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the legal basis. For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR is the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions. Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation which our company is subject to, Article 6 para. 1 lit. c of the GDPR is the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, insofar as the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail, Article 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR is the legal basis for processing.

It is impossible to protect data completely against unauthorised access by third parties. As part of our duty to publish a legal notice, we hereby expressly prohibit the use of the contact data published by third parties for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertisements and information material. The operators of these pages reserve the express right to take legal steps in the event of unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails being sent.

When you subscribe to our newsletter, you acknowledge that you have agreed to receive the newsletter and that you agree with the processes that have been described.
Content of the newsletter
We send the newsletter, emails and other electronic messages with advertising information (hereinafter referred to as “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or if we have been granted legal permission to do so. User consent is based on the contents of the newsletter being described in specific terms when the user registers to subscribe. For all other matters, our newsletters contain information on new product appearances of MH COVER and/or tips on the subject of E-bikes.
Double opt-in and data logging
We use a double opt-in process when users subscribe to our newsletter. this means that you will receive an email after registering which asks you to confirm that you have registered. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external email addresses.
New subscriptions to the newsletter are logged in order to verify that the subscription process complies with the legal requirements. This involves storing the IP address and the time at which the new user registers and confirms the subscription.
The newsletter is sent via the server of our hosting partner ALL-INKL.COM - Neue Medien Münnich, with whom we have concluded a GCU contract.
You only need to provide your email address when you subscribe to receive the newsletter.
Statistical surveys and analyses
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", which means a pixel-sized file that is retrieved when the newsletter opens. Technical information, such as information on your browser, your operating system and IP address, are collected at the time the file is accessed. This information is used to facilitate technical improvements in our services by means of gathering technical data, information on target groups and their reading behaviour by analysing access times and the locations from which readers call up the files (determined by means of IP addresses).
Further statistical analysis includes determining whether the newsletter has been opened, when it was opened and which links have been clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be matched to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not our goal to monitor individual users. The main purpose of this analysis is to identify the reading habits of our users and to tailor our content to their requirements, or to publish various types of content that matches the interests of our readers.
Notice of cancellation/revocation
You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter i.e. revoke your consent, at any time. In doing so, both your consent to receive the newsletter via MailChimp and statistical analysis terminate. A separate revocation of the sending or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.
You will find an unsubscribe link at the end of each newsletter.
