Social Media Cookies
Social media plug-ins are integrated on smart-arena.eu pages to enable recommending and sharing articles in social networks, for instance Facebook or Twitter. For this purpose, we use a two-step process. Data is only transferred to third parties when a user clicks one of the icons in the social media bar. smart-arena.eu has no influence on and no access to cookies placed by Facebook, Twitter etc.
We use this data exclusively for sending requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
The data entered in the newsletter registration form is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e. g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.
This website uses rapidmail to send newsletters. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg i.Br., Germany.
Rapidmail is a service with which, among other things, the dispatch of newsletters can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving newsletters is stored on Rapidmail’s servers in Germany.
If you do not want Rapidmail to analyse your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe directly on the website.
- Data analysis by Rapidmail
For the purpose of analysis, the e-mails sent with Rapidmail contain a so-called “tracking pixel”, which connects to the Rapidmail servers when the e-mail is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened.
Furthermore, with the help of Rapidmail we can determine whether and which links in the newsletter message are clicked on. All links in the e-mail are so-called tracking links, with which your clicks can be counted.

- Legal basis
The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
- Storage period
The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the Rapidmail servers after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members’ area) remain unaffected by this.
