Newsletter Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

Information on the newsletter and consent

We are providing you with the following information to explain the content of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation processes and your right of objection. By submitting your name and/or e-mail address at either www.georgiacarlaw.com or www.lefkofflaw.com, you agree with the described processes and to the receipt of Lefkoff Law, LLC emails.

Content of our emails (newsletter)

We only send emails and other electronic notifications with advertising material (referred to hereinafter as the “newsletter”) with the consent of the recipients or legal permission. If specific content of the newsletter is altered during the registration process, this content is essential for the consent of the users. Our emails contain information on Georgia laws relating to motor vehicles and may contain references to laws in other states. Furthermore, they might contain inspirational content intended unrelated to the legal field or motor vehicles.

Recording process

The newsletter registrations are recorded in order to be able to verify the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation and the IP address. The changes to your data that is held by GetResponse are also recorded.

Use of the email service provider “GetResponse”

The newsletter is dispatched by “GetResponse”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider GetResponse, Inc. 3 Germay Dr Ste,5 PMB 15672,Wilmington, DE 19804.

The email addresses of our newsletter recipients and their further details described in this information are stored on the GetResponse servers. GetResponse uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. GetResponse can by its own admission also use this data to enhance or improve its own services, e.g. to technically enhance the dispatch procedure and display of the newsletter or for commercial purposes to be able to determine which countries the recipients are from. However, GetResponse will not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them itself or forward it to third parties.

We trust the reliability, IT security and data security of GetResponse. GetResponse is certified under the US-EU data privacy agreement “Privacy Shield“ and agrees to comply with the EU data privacy guidelines. We have also concluded a “Data Processing Agreement“ with GetResponse. This is an agreement in which GetResponse is obligated to protect the data of our users, to process it in accordance with its privacy policy on our behalf and must not forward this information to third parties. You can view the GetResponse privacy policy here.

Login details

You only need to provide your email address to register for the newsletter. If you also provide us with your name, this enables us to personalize our email. However, it is not strictly necessary to provide your name to register for the newsletter.

Statistical survey and analyses

Our emails contain a “web beacon”, i.e. a pixel-size file that is retrieved from the GetResponse server when opening emails. This initially involves technical information being retrieved such as information on the browser and your system as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval. This information is used to make technical improvements to services based on technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (that can be determined with the IP address) or access times.

The statistical surveys also involve determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked on. This information may be assigned to individual newsletter recipients for technical reasons but it is neither our intention nor that of GetResponse to monitor individual users. The evaluations instead help us to recognise the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content based on our users’ interests.

Online access and data management

There are instances where we lead newsletter recipients to the GetResponse web pages, e.g. our newsletters contain a link which newsletter recipients can use to access the newsletters online (e.g. if there are issues with displaying the newsletter in the email program). Newsletter recipients may also correct data such as their email address retrospectively. The GetResponse privacy policy can also only be accessed on its site.

Please be aware that cookies are used on the GetResponse web pages for this purpose and personal data is therefore processed by GetResponse, its partners and the service providers it uses (e.g. Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection. You can find more information in the privacy statement of GetResponse.

Termination/Revocation

You may opt-out of receiving our newsletter at any time, i.e. withdraw your consent. This means you also no longer consent to the distribution of this newsletter via GetResponse and the statistical analyses. It is not possible to cancel the distribution via GetResponse or the statistical evaluation separately.

You can find a link to unsubscribe to the newsletter at the end of each Lefkoff Law, LLC newsletter email.

General Data Protection Regulation legal bases

According to the guidelines of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) valid from 25 May 2018, we hereby inform you that you have consented to your email addresses being sent based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, 7 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and § 7 Para. 2(3) or Para. 3 of the Unfair Competition Act (UC). The email service provider GetResponse is used, the statistical surveys and analyses are performed and the registration procedure is recorded based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our interests focus on the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests and meets user expectations.

We also wish to point out that you can object to the future processing of your personal data at all times in accordance with the legal regulations pursuant to Art. 21 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Specifically, the objection can be made against processing for direct marketing purposes.
