Subscription to our newsletter

On the website of PANHANS by HOKUBEMA Maschinenbau GmbH the users are given the opportunity to subscribe to the newsletter of our company. Which personal data are transmitted to the data controller when ordering the newsletter results from the input mask used for this purpose.

PANHANS by HOKUBEMA Maschinenbau GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers of the company. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by an affected person for the first time for newsletter mailing using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email serves to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the person concerned has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the data subject's e-mail address at a later date and therefore provides the legal safeguards for the data controller.

The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be notified by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as may be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or technical changes. There is no transfer of the personal data collected in the context of the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the controller's website, or to inform the controller in a different way.


The newsletters of PANHANS by HOKUBEMA Maschinenbau GmbH contain so-called counting pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in those emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Using the embedded pixel, PANHANS by HOKUBEMA Maschinenbau GmbH can detect whether and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail were called up by the data subject.

Such personal data collected via the counting pixels contained in the newsletters will be stored and evaluated by the controller in order to optimize the delivery of the newsletter and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Affected persons are at any time entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent issued via the double-opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. A deregistration from the receipt of the newsletter automatically indicates PANHANS by HOKUBEMA Maschinenbau GmbH as a revocation.
