The registration for the newsletter takes place in the so-called “double-opt-in procedure”. After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary to prevent people from registering with external e-mail addresses.
The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements.

Corresponding, any changes to your data stored in “MailChimp” will be logged.Use of the shipping service “MailChimp”The newsletter is distributed via “MailChimp”, a newsletter shipping platform of Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. Both the e-mail addresses of the newsletter recipients and their other information described in these notes are stored on MailChimp’s servers in the United States. MailChimp uses this information for sending and evaluating the newsletters on behalf of triper. Furthermore, MailChimp may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the sending and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of the newsletter recipients to address them themselves or to pass them on to third parties. triper relies on the reliability, IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU privacy shield “Privacy Shield” and is committed to complying with EU privacy rules. Furthermore, triper has concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp commits to protect users’ data, to process them in accordance with the data protection provisions on behalf of triper and in particular not to disclose them to third parties. The privacy policy of MailChimp can be viewed here:

Notifying data
To subscribe to the newsletter, the user is required to enter his e-mail address. Optionally, he will be asked to provide his first and last name. This information is only for the personalization of the newsletter. The user can also optionally specify his date of birth, gender and profession. This information is only used to adapt the content of the newsletter to the interests of the user.

Statistical evaluation
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. This will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and the system, as well as the user´s IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. This information can theoretically be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, the evaluations are only used to identify the reading habits of the users and to adapt the contents of triper to them or to send different contents according to the interests of the users.

Online retrieval and data management
In some cases, newsletter recipients may be directed to the MailChimp websites. For example, the newsletters contain a link that allows the newsletter recipients to retrieve the newsletters online (for example, in the event of problems with the e-mail program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can change their data, such as the correct e-mail address, later. Similarly, the privacy policy of MailChimp is only available on their page ( In this context, we point out that on the websites of MailChimp cookies are used and thus personal data processed by MailChimp, their partners and service providers used (for example, Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection. For more information, see the privacy policy of MailChimp ( Please also refer to the possibility of objecting to the data collection for advertising purposes on the websites and (for the European area).

Termination / Withdrawal of the newsletter
The user may terminate the receipt of the newsletter at any time and/or revoke the consent. At the same time, the user´s consent to sending it via MailChimp and the statistical analyzes expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible for technical reasons. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.
