I agree that my personal data (IP address, e-mail address, first name and surname, if applicable) may be transmitted to The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a Mailchimp: Bird & Bird GDPR Representative Services Ireland Deloitte House - 29 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2 - DO2 AY28 and in the USA. The purpose of this data transfer is to receive the newsletter to which I have subscribed, including the collection of certain statistics by the newsletter sender (for example, opening rates, click rates). I am aware that the USA is considered a third country within the meaning of Art. 44 et seq. of the GDPR and that there are no sufficient legal protections or guarantees for the protection of my data within the meaning of Art. 46 of the GDPR there. Accordingly, there is currently also no valid EU adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 of the GDPR.
I am aware that if my data is transferred to the USA, there is an increased risk of violation of my rights and freedoms with regard to my personal data, in particular my right to data protection, informational self-determination and the protection of my privacy. The known risks in detail:
- The possibility that my data may be collected by government agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) or the National Security Agency (NSA) without a court order, under laws such as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the CLOUD (Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data) Act, the Freedom Act and the Patriot Act, among others;
- The risk of my data being used for commercial purposes without my explicit consent;
- The lack of data subject rights within the meaning of the GDPR (e.g. access, rectification, deletion of data) in the third country;
- The lack of sufficient legal protection in the event of unauthorised processing of my data by third parties;
- The risk of my data being disclosed in the event of a data leak or data breach without me being informed and/or having sanction options;
- The risk that I will not be able to enforce a correction or deletion of my personal data against the company receiving the data in the third country after revoking this consent.
I nevertheless consent to the transfer of my data to the US despite the above risks. This consent is voluntary and I can revoke it at any time (e.g. with an unsubscribe link in every email).
