If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, I require an e-mail address from you. Further data is not collected unless you provide it on a voluntary basis. For the handling of the newsletter, I use the newsletter service provider, which is described below.


This website uses MailerLite to send newsletters. The provider is UAB “MailerLite”, J. Basanaviciaus 15, LT-03108 Vilnius, Lithuania (hereinafter referred to as MailerLite).

MailerLite is a service that, among other things, can be used to organize and analyze the sending of newsletters. The data you enter to subscribe to the newsletter is stored on MailerLite’s servers.

If you do not want MailerLite to analyze your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, I provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message.

Data analysis by MailerLite

MailerLite enables me to analyze my newsletter campaigns. For example, I can see whether a newsletter message was opened and which links were clicked on, if any. In this way I can determine which links were clicked on particularly often and what topics are of interest to my subscribers.

Detailed information on the functions of MailerLite can be found here.

The MailerLite privacy policy can be found here.

Legal basis

Data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time for the future.

Storage period

The data you provide me with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by me or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased to apply. I reserve the right to delete or block e-mail addresses from my newsletter distribution list at my own discretion within the scope of my legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. This does not affect data stored by me for other purposes.

After you have been removed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored by me or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if such action is necessary to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and my interest in compliance with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). There is no time limit on storage in the blacklist. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh my legitimate interest.

Data processing

I have concluded a data processing agreement (DPA) for the use of the above-mentioned service. This is a contract mandated by data privacy laws that guarantees that they process personal data of my website visitors only based on my instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.
