All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The Bauhaus Cooperation reserves the right to change, enhance, delete or temporarily or permanently discontinue parts of the website or whole pages without prior notice.

The website contains links to external third-party websites. The Bauhaus Cooperation has no influence over external websites and therefore assumes no liability for their content. The responsibility for the content of linked websites lies solely with the respective providers or operators. The linked pages are checked at the time of linking for possible legal infringements, with no unlawful content being identified at the time of linking. However, the Bauhaus Cooperation cannot be expected to continuously monitor the content of linked pages without concrete proof of legal infringement. In cases where infringements are ascertained, such links will be immediately removed.

The use of contact information published by necessity in the imprint by third parties to send advertisements and information not expressly requested is hereby explicitly rejected. The Bauhaus Cooperation expressly reserves the right to take legal action should it receive unsolicited advertising materials, e.g., through spam mails.


Copyright and trademark law

The copyright law applies to all content, including the layout of the website. The Bauhaus Cooperation endeavours to observe the copyrights for all images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences, texts and other designs on this website and to identify these with a copyright mark.

All logos or trademarks utilised on this website are protected by copyright and may not be used without the permission of the copyright holder.

Data protection

The Internet portal www.bauhaus100.de currently collects data from users only by means of the newsletter and the calendar entry function. The data collected in this way is used solely for these two functions. The Bauhaus Cooperation cannot monitor whether a third party may have registered for the newsletter under another name; the sender therefore receives an automatic e-mail with a confirmation link. Directions for how to unsubscribe are also found at the end of every newsletter. The Bauhaus Cooperation does not collect or exploit personal data unless authorised to do so by the user.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

Information on the newsletter and consents

The following information explains the content of our newsletter, the subscription, mailing and statistical analysis process, and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the aforementioned processes and to receive the newsletter.

Newsletter content

We only send newsletters, emails and other electronic information notifications (hereinafter “newsletter”) with the consent of the recipient or legal permission. If, when subscribing to the newsletter, the newsletter’s content is specifically described, this shall serve as the basis for the user’s consent. For the rest, our newsletters contain news relating to the company’s 100th birthday, e.g. event information, tips from member states, or new media/services.

Double opt-In and data logging

Subscribing to our newsletter involves a “double opt-in” process, i.e. after subscribing, you are sent an email asking you to confirm your subscription. This confirmation is required in order to prevent anyone else from subscribing using external email addresses.

The newsletter subscriptions are logged to ensure the subscription process can be proven in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes storing the time of the subscription and confirmation, and the IP address.

Use of the mailing service provider MailChimp

The newsletter is sent via MailChimp, a newsletter mailing platform run by US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their additional data described in this notice, are stored on the MailChimp servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and analyse the newsletters on our behalf. MailChimp may, according to its own information, also use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimise newsletter mailing or display, or for financial purposes, in order to determine the countries the recipients are from. MailChimp does not, however, use our newsletter recipients’ data to contact said recipients directly or share the data with third parties.

We trust MailChimp’s reliability, IT security and data security. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU Privacy Shield, and thus commits to upholding the EU data protection regulations. We have also concluded a data-processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp commits to protecting our users’ data, processing it on our behalf in accordance with its privacy regulations, and, in particular, not sharing it with third parties. You can view the MailChimp privacy regulations here.

Subscription data

To subscribe to the newsletter, please enter your title, first and last names, and email address.

Statistical collection and analyses

The newsletters contain a “web beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file retrieved by the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. During this retrieval process, technical information, such as information on the browser, your system, your IP address and the time of the retrieval, are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data, the target groups and their reading behaviour, the retrieval locations (identifiable using IP addresses) or access times.

The statistical data collections also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. While this information may be linked to individual newsletter recipients for technical reasons, it is neither our nor MailChimp’s intention to monitor individual users. The analyses instead help us identify our users’ reading habits and adapt our content to them, or to send different content based on our users’ interests.

Online retrieval and data management

There are cases in which we redirect the newsletter recipients to MailChimp’s websites, e.g. our newsletters contain a link through which the newsletter recipients can retrieve the newsletters online (e.g. if the email program has problems displaying it). Newsletter recipients may also correct their data, e.g. email address, later on. The MailChimp privacy policy is similarly only available on the MailChimp site.

In this context, we wish to advise that MailChimp’s websites use cookies, meaning personal data is processed by MailChimp, its partners and its service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). We have no control over this data collection. Further information can be found in the MailChimp privacy policy. Please also refer to the options for objecting to data collection for promotional purposes at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (for Europe).

Cancellation/Revocation

You may cancel your newsletter subscription, i.e. revoke your consent, at any time. This will also void your consent to statistical analyses and MailChimp mailings. It is unfortunately impossible to cancel the MailChimp mailings and statistical analysis separately.

The bottom of each newsletter contains an unsubscribe link.

Communication by e-mail

Communication by e-mail can entail security risks. E-mails sent to the Bauhaus Cooperation can be intercepted and read by savvy Internet users. Should the Bauhaus Cooperation receive an e-mail from you, it is assumed that the staff are entitled to reply by e-mail. Alternatively, you may wish to consider another mode of communication (e.g., by post).


Legal validity of this disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the website, which includes a reference to this page. Should part or specific formulations of this text not, no longer or not fully comply with the applicable legal requirements, the content and validity of the remaining sections of the document remain unaffected.
