We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service.

NEWSLETTER & EMAIL COLLECTION
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 registering for our newsletter, you agree with the described processes and to the receipt of Blues Traveler emails.
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.
Use of the email service provider “MailChimp”
The newsletter is sent and contacts are managed by “MailChimp”, a email marketing platform .
The email addresses of our newsletter recipients and their further details described in this information are stored on the MailChimp servers. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. MailChimp can by its own admission also use this data to enhance or improve its own services. However, MailChimp will not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them itself or forward it to third parties.
There are instances where we lead newsletter recipients to the MailChimp 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 within your email). Newsletter recipients may also correct data such as their email address retrospectively. The privacy statement of MailChimp can also only be accessed on its site.
Please be aware that cookies are used on the MailChimp web pages for this purpose and personal data is therefore processed by MailChimp, 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 MailChimp. We would also like to refer you to the possibilities of opting out of data collection for promotional purposes on the websites http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (for the European region).
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 MailChimp and the statistical analyses. It is not possible to cancel the distribution via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation separately.
You can find a link to unsubscribe to the newsletter at the end of each Blues Traveler email.
