The protection and security of personal data has a high priority. The person responsible for data processing is identical with the person responsible for the content of this website. The name and contact details can be found in Imprint. Below you will be informed about the type of data collected and the purpose for which it is collected.
Scope of processing of personal data
We only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only after consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Legal basis for processing personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
Data erasure and storage time
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
Data transfer and data logging
When you visit this page, the web server automatically registers log files that cannot be assigned to a specific person. These data include the requested target page URL, browser type and version, operating system used, referrer URL, IP address of the requesting computer, date and time of the request. This data is only stored for the purpose of statistical evaluation and to ensure system security. A passing on to third parties is not sufficient, unless a passing on is necessary due to legal regulations.
It is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted by e-mail will be stored. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation. In the event of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected.
Right of information, modification and deletion
In accordance with applicable law, you can ask us in writing at any time whether and what personal data about you is stored by us. You will be notified immediately. You can change or delete the data stored about you at any time.
Right of data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the person responsible in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another data controller without interference by the data controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on a consent or a contract and that the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
Your personal data provided to us will be secured by taking all technical and organisational security measures in such a way that they are inaccessible for access by unauthorised third parties.
On some of our pages we use so-called “cookies” to facilitate your use of our web pages. These are small text files which are stored on your hard disk and are deleted when you close your browser, depending on the settings of your browser program. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser or set your browser so that it informs you of the storage of new cookies. You can also restrict the storage of cookies for individual websites.
Right of disagreement and opt-out procedure
You have the right to disagree at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The data controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless he can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
You have the option of exercising your right of objection by means of automated procedures using technical specifications. You can use opt-out cookies to exercise your right to object to individual websites and services. However, since these opt-out cookies must be set manually on all devices you use and for each individual website, this solution is impractical and therefore a simpler objection procedure is recommended: the private browsing mode in your browser. This mode ensures that cookies are not permanently stored and tracking technologies are blocked. The private browsing mode is a comprehensive opt-out solution for all web services that we have included on our websites. To learn how to activate the private browsing mode in your specific browser, click here: Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge and Safari.
