Sign up to our Newsletter via "Double-Opt-In"
If you register on our pages for one of the newsletters, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

In order to send you the newsletters offered on our website and ordered by you, we ask for your e-mail address via an order form and ask you for subsequent confirmation (so-called double opt-in procedure). After your registration you will receive an e-mail in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses. These data are stored and used exclusively for the execution of the dispatch. The personal data which you communicate to us via our website or which you have communicated to us for the subscription of the newsletter will only be stored until the purpose for which they were entrusted to us has been fulfilled.
When you register and unsubscribe from the newsletter, we store the e-mail address, confirmation e-mails and IP address for a period of 12 months in addition to the respective time (date and time). If you no longer agree to the storage of your personal data or if it has become incorrect, we will, on your instructions, delete or block your data or make the necessary corrections, insofar as this is possible under applicable law.

Newsletter - Service Providers
If you are interested in our publications and newsletters, you are free to choose between the areas of Wealth and Asset Management, Forex Trading and Economics. Internally, we use a service provider called Inxmail which is managing the process of collecting your data, your consent and unsubscriptions on Berenbergs behalf. The legal basis for distributing the newsletters to you is always consent, collected via double-opt-in procedure (Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a) GDPR).

Newsletter - Impact Analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", which is a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server at Berenberg when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval can be collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. The evaluations serve Berenberg to recognize the reading habits of the recipients of newsletters and to adapt the content to the interests of these.
The legal basis for this analysis is also your consent, collected via double-opt-in procedure (Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a) GDPR).
