The newsletters of the Deutscher Fußball Botschafter e.V. contain so-called tracking pixels.

This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the German Football Ambassadors e.V. may see if 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 tracking pixel contained in the newsletters are stored and analysed by the cloud-based service provider Mailchimp in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to better tailor the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject.
