If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address and further information from you. So we can verify that you agree with the owner of the given e-mail address and with the receipt of the newsletter. To ensure that the newsletter is sent to us, we use the double-opt-in procedure. In the course of this, the potential recipient can be included in a distribution list. Afterwards, the user receives a confirmation e-mail to confirm the application legally. Only when the confirmation is made, the address is actively included in the distributor. We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and offers. The newsletter regularly informs about IWT events and events, current projects and news.
