When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data that can be used to personally identify you. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.B. when communicating via e-mail) may have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note on the responsible body

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases as well as to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If the data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (opposition under Art. 21 sec. 1 GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling in so far as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (opposition under Art. 21 sec. 2 GDPR).

Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of the GDPR, the persons concerned shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right to appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically processed on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests you send to us as a site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by changing the address line of the browser from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock icon in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion and rectification

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to rectification, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for further questions on the subject of personal data.

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data has been/happens unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have filed an objection under Article 21(1) GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and our interests. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may be processed, except for its storage, only with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to promotional e-mails

The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby objected to. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, e.g. by spam e-mails.

3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

The websites sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They will be deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only on a case-by-case basis, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. When disabling cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (e..B shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e..B. cookies for the analysis of your browsing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Server Log Files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing machine
  • Time of server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded.

Contact

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the request form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored with us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the date of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage is omitted (e.B. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions, in particular retention periods, remain unaffected.

Request by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including any personal data (name, request) resulting from it, will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not share this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit.b GDPR, provided that your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage is omitted (e.B. after your request has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions, in particular statutory retention periods, remain unaffected.

Storage of the IP address

Our comment function stores the IP addresses of the users who write comments. Since we do not review comments on our site before activation, we need this data in order to be able to take action against the author in case of violations of the law such as insults or propaganda.

As a user of the site, you can subscribe to comments after signing in. You will receive a confirmation email to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided. You can unsubscribe from this function at any time via a link in the info mails. The data entered as part of subscribing to comments will be deleted in this case; however, if you have provided this data to us for other purposes and elsewhere (e.B. newsletter ordering), they will remain with us.

Storage time of comments

The comments and the related data (e..B IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments need to be deleted for legal reasons (e.B. offensive comments).

legal basis

The comments are stored on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
