Personal data & purpose of processing data

L-Pub GmbH processes and saves your personal data when they are communicated to us by e-mail, post, telephone or similar. Of course, these data are kept confidential and are only used for the originally intended purpose. Data are not passed on to third parties, unless: it is required or permitted according to law; you have given us your permission to do so; a government body has ordered us to submit the information.

If you contact us via e-mail, your e-mails and attached files will be saved in our e-mail system. The legal basis for this is either Article 6, 1. (a), (b) or (c) GDPR.

Data protection for applications

We use the data received in an application (for a job or internship, etc.) to process the application in accordance with Article 6, 1. (a) GDPR. These data will only be seen by persons involved in the application process. If an application is not successful, the information is saved for 6 months following the conclusion of the application process. Data are saved for this amount of time so that we can comply with requests in accordance with the Allgemeine Gleichbehandlungsgesetz (a German anti-discrimination regulation) if necessary. With your approval, we can set an alternative holding period in accordance with Article 6, 1. (a) GDPR.


We use cookies to simplify and optimize your experience on our website. We have a legitimate interest in using cookies in accordance with Article 6, 1. (f) GDPR.

At any time, you can set your browser to allow or block cookies, or set it so that you must first accept their use, and to have them automatically deleted after you leave the site. If you block cookies, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the website.

Use of third-party services

We have third-party services embedded on our website, such as YouTube videos or Google reCAPTCHA. The providers of these services (hereinafter “third party providers”) can always access users’ IP addresses. Without the IP address, the services would not be optimized for the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore required to render the services correctly. We strive to rely exclusively on third party providers who only use the IP address for the purpose of delivering their services. However, we cannot guarantee that third party providers do not use IP addresses for statistical purposes.

Wherever possible, we rely on third-party providers based within the EU which fully comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), such as for our online ordering system.

Links to other websites

Our website contains links to other websites. We cannot guarantee that the operators of those websites adhere to the General Data Protection Regulation.

Social media icons

In order to raise awareness of our website in social media (LinkedIn, YouTube), we use social icons on our homepage. These are saved as picture files in our database and include a link to the respective network. Data is only processed by the respective social network if a website visitor clicks on one of these icons while also logged in to that social network.

Rights of affected individuals

In accordance with Article 15 GDPR, you are always entitled to ask whether we process any of your personal data. If we do, we are required to provide further information.

Provided there are no other conflicting laws, you also have the following rights: to have the information corrected in accordance with Article 16 GDPR; to have the information deleted in accordance with Article 17 GDPR; to place limits on the processing of information in accordance with Article 18 GDPR. Of course, you can also withdraw your consent that allows us to process your personal data in accordance with Article 6, 1. (a) or Article 9, 2. (a). This does not affect the lawfulness of processing data prior to your withdrawal of consent.

You also have the right of data portability in accordance with Article 20 GDPR. Particularly for processing based on Article 6, 1. (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right in accordance with Article 20 GDPR to object to any processing of your data.

You also have the right to submit a complaint to the relevant supervisory authority.

We put technical and organizational security measures in place to protect your data from intentional or unintentional manipulation, theft, loss, deletion or access by unauthorized persons.

Privacy Policy / Data Protection Statement for our newsletters

Details about our newsletters and approvals

The following explains the contents of our newsletters, as well as details pertaining to registration, sending and statistical evaluations and your right to object. By subscribing to one of our newsletters, you agree to receiving the newsletter and the process described below.

Content of the newsletters

We only send out newsletters, e-mails and other electronic messages with marketing information (hereinafter “newsletters”) if the recipients give permission or if there is legal basis to do so. During the process of subscribing to a newsletter, its contents are specifically described, allowing you to ascertain its relevance to you. Our newsletters contain news about and from our company, L-Pub. This can include references to our offers, blog entries, press releases, new developments, tips for language learners and job offerings.

Double opt-in and logged data (newsletters)

The registration for one of our newsletters follows the “double opt-in” process. That means that you will receive an e-mail after registering where you can confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary to prevent individuals from entering the e-mail addresses of others. Newsletter registrations are logged to prove that the registration process follows applicable laws. This log contains the registration and confirmation date and time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data are also logged.

Use of MailChimp service provider (newsletters)

Our newsletters are sent using “MailChimp”, a newsletter sending platform of the US company Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter subscribers, along with the data described here, are stored on the MailChimp servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this information to optimize its own services, e.g. to technologically optimize its sending process, newsletter display, or for economic purposes, in order to determine which countries the recipients come from. MailChimp, however, does not use the data of our newsletter subscribers to send anything itself, nor does it pass on the information to third parties.

We trust MailChimp’s reliability, IT and data security. MailChimp is certified to the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and thereby conforms to the EU data security laws. We have also concluded a “Data Processing Agreement” with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp agrees to protect our users’ data, process them in accordance to the data protection agreement on our behalf and, in particular, not to pass any information on to third parties. You can read MailChimp’s privacy policy here.

Registration details (newsletters)

In order to register for one of our newsletters, we require your e-mail as well as your first and last name.

Statistical records and analyses (newsletters)

Our newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, which is a file the size of a pixel that connects to the MailChimp server when a newsletter is opened. This connection provides technical information on your browser, system and IP address at the time of viewing the newsletter. This information is used to technically improve services or to determine the target groups’ reading behavior according to their access location (based on the IP address) or access duration.

The statistical evaluations also determine whether the newsletter is opened, when it is opened and what links are clicked. This information can, for technical reasons, be attributed to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not our goal, nor is it the goal of MailChimp, to observe individual users. The evaluations are used to recognize our subscribers’ reading habits so that we can adapt our contents to better fit their needs, or to send out differentiated content according to our users’ interests.

Online activities and data management (newsletters)

As needed, we may connect our newsletter recipients to MailChimp websites. For example, our newsletter contains a link to allow users to view the newsletter online, in case, for example, an e-mail system has trouble displaying the newsletter. Another reason may be if a newsletter recipient would like to change their data, e.g. e-mail address. Furthermore, MailChimp’s Privacy Policy can only be viewed on their website.

We therefore inform you that MailChimp’s website contains cookies which allow for the processing of personal data by MailChimp, their partners and third-party providers, such as Google Analytics. We cannot influence how they handle data. For more information, see MailChimp’s Privacy Policy. We also advise you of your right to object to the storage of personal data as may be done via and (for Europe).

Cancellation/objection (newsletters)

You can cancel your subscription to a newsletter at any time, i.e. cancel your approval. This cancels your approval to receive the newsletter via MailChimp as well as the statistical analyses. It is not possible to object separately to receiving the newsletter via MailChimp and the statistical analyses.

You’ll find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of every newsletter.

Legal basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (newsletters)

According to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which went into effect on 25 May 2018, we inform you that the approval for sending the newsletter to e-mail addresses conforms to Article 6 para. 1. (a) and Article 7 GDPR as well as Article 7 para. 2 . no. 3, and para. 3. of the “German Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb” (law on unfair competition). The use of our newsletter service provider MailChimp, the statistical records and analyses, and the logging of registration information are carried out in accordance with our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. It is in our interest to utilize a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our commercial interests and the expectations of our users.


We reserve the right to adapt our Privacy Policy / Statement of Data Protection at any time, in compliance with the applicable data protection laws.
