The newsletter of the In a nutshell – kurzgesagt GmbH contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the In a nutshell – kurzgesagt GmbH may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by us in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by us. The In a nutshell – kurzgesagt GmbH automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
Integration of social media
On the basis of Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR we use the social networks YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Patreon, Reddit and Bēhance in order to make our website better known and to interact with our target groups. Responsibility for the data protection-compliant operation of these services is guaranteed by the respective provider. We integrate these services exclusively via a link so that visitors to our website have the best possible control over their personal data.
These social networks are operated exclusively by third parties, some of whom have their register office outside the E.U. or the EEA – there may therefore be no adequate level of data protection in accordance with the GDPR. The browser plug-ins and links on our website are identified by logos or other references. When you visit our website, which contains such a browser plug-in, a connection is automatically established between your device (browser) and the servers of the respective social network. This forwards the information that you have visited our website to the social network. If you are logged in to the social network via your personal user account or during your visit to our website, your visit to our website will be assigned to your account. By interacting with browser plug-ins or links, e.g. by pressing a “like” button or leaving a comment, this information is transmitted to the respective social network and stored there. The allocation of the data to your account can therefore be prevented on the one hand by logging out of your account (of the respective social network) before visiting our website. On the other hand, you can also completely prevent the loading of the respective plug-ins with an add-on for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).
The purpose and scope of data collection through social networks as well as the further processing and use of your data and your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the respective data protection information of the operators:
