However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter subscribers in order to contact them on MailChimp’s own behalf, neither does MailChimp pass on the data to third parties.
We trust on the reliability and the IT as well as data safety of MailChimp. MailChimp is a company certified with the “Privacy Shield” according to the US-EU data protection agreement and therefor bound to meet the European data protection guidelines.
