Privacy for PDF-AKTUELL

On May 26th the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the EU became effective. Since many visitors of PDF-AKTUELL and also a lot of the readers of the newsletter live in the EU, PDF-AKTUELL is also concerned by this new regulation.

That’s why I have created a Privacy Statement (german original) and also enhanced the Impressum (german original). All forms now contain a mandatory checkbox to accept storage of the data.

Since the start of this website we are using a double optin for the newsletter subscription. That means that after registration the subscribers gets an e-mail with a conformation link. This prevents that e-mail addresses are subscribed without explicit consent.

Since each subscriber has alread sent his consent I renounce to sending a conformation mail again to all subscribers. Most of you are probably receiving (too) many (mostly unnecessary) mails in this regard these days…

Subscribers of the newsletter can unsubscribe anytime. At the bottom of each newsletter there is also a link to the unsubscription form.

Unwanted mails to newsletter subscibers

My Internet provider has recently migrated my server. Unfortunately the settings of the mailinglists which are used for sending the PDF-AKTUELL newsletters have been lost during this operation.

Some subscribers have reveiced unwanted mails from the mailing list. The provider is sorry for that.

The settings are now restored and this should put an end to these unwanted mails…!
