The newsletters contain a pixel-sized file, which is accessed by the Newsletter2Go server when the newsletter is opened. When that file is accessed, it first collects technical information such as the details of your browser, system, and IP address, as well as the time of access. This information helps us to improve our services based on the technical data, target groups, your reading habits, place of access (which can be determined using the IP address) and the time of access.
As a result, the following information may be collected: whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked on. For technical reasons, this information can be used to identify individual newsletter recipients. These analyses help us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to customize our content for them. The habits of individual users, however, is not monitored or analyzed.
