Your rights as a data subject

Using the contact details provided for our data protection officer, you can exercise the following rights, at any time:

  • the right to be informed about the personal data we store concerning you and how it is processed,
  • the right to rectification of incorrect personal data,
  • the right to erasure of the data we hold concerning you,
  • the right to restrict data processing, unless we are not allowed to erase your data yet due to legal obligations,
  • the right to object to the processing of the data we hold concerning you, and
  • the right to data portability, if you have consented to the data processing or you have concluded a contract with us.

If you have given us your consent, you can revoke this at any time with future effect.

You can contact your supervisory authority with a complaint at any time. Your supervisory authority will depend on the federal state in which you live or work or in which the suspected infringement has occurred.

Purposes of the data processing carried out by the data controller and third parties

We only process your personal data for the purposes stated in this privacy statement. We do not transfer your personal data to third parties for any purposes other than those stated. We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this,
  • the processing is required for the execution of a contract with you,
  • the processing is required for the fulfilment of a legal obligation,

the processing is required for the safeguarding of legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data.

Erasure or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary for the achievement of the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by the legislator. Once the data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected or these periods have expired, it is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with the legal regulations.

Collection of general information from visitors to our website

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of internet browser and operating system used, the domain name of your internet provider and other similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow you to be identified.

This information is required for technical reasons in order to correctly provide the content you have requested from our web pages and is necessarily required for use of the internet. It is used for the following purposes in particular:

  • to ensure that an easy connection with the website is established,
  • to ensure that our website can be used without problems,
  • to evaluate system security and stability and
  • for other administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest arising from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to identify you. The only recipients of the data are the data controller and, possibly, order processors.

Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard disk. We thereby automatically receive certain data, such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system and your connection to the internet, for example.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Using the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our web pages to be displayed correctly.

The data collected by us will under no circumstances be passed on to third parties and no link will be made to personal data without your consent.

You can, in principle, also view our website without cookies of course. Internet browsers are routinely set to accept cookies. You can generally deactivate the use of cookies via your browser's settings at any time. Please use your internet browser's Help functions to find out how to alter these settings. Please note that individual features of our website may not function if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

Registration on our website

When you register to use our personalised services, some personal data are collected, such as your name, your address and your contact and communication details, for example, your telephone number and email address. If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option to amend or delete the data provided when registering, if necessary, at any time. In addition, we will, of course, provide you with information about the personal data we hold concerning you, at any time. We will be happy to correct or delete these data upon your request, insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain such data. If you would like to contact us in this regard, please use the contact details provided at the end of this privacy statement.

SSL encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during transfer, we use the current state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Comment feature

If users leave comments on our website, the time of their creation and the user name chosen beforehand by the website visitor are stored in addition to the comments themselves. This is for our security, as we can be prosecuted for unlawful content on our website, even if this is created by users.

Contact form

If you contact us regarding queries of any kind by email or using the contact form, you are voluntarily giving us permission to contact you. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide a valid email address. This helps us to assign the query and subsequently reply to it. The provision of other data is optional. The details provided by you are stored for the purpose of dealing with the query and any possible subsequent queries. Once your query has been dealt with, the personal data is automatically erased.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos in some of our web pages. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is created to YouTube's servers. Youtube is thereby informed about which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can attribute your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.

When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour.

If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program, such cookies will not be saved when you view YouTube videos. However, YouTube also files non-personal user information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you need to block the saving of cookies in your browser.

Further information regarding data protection with "YouTube" is available in the provider's privacy statement at: https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/

Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adapt this privacy statement to ensure that it always meets the current legal requirements or in order to incorporate changes to our services into our privacy statement, e.g. when launching new services. The new privacy statement will then apply to your next visit.
