Privacy Policy

Thank you for your interest in our website and our company. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We consider it our task to protect the confidentiality of your personal data and to protect it from unauthorized access.
We are subject to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR / DSGVO) and the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Technical and organisational measures ensure that the data protection regulations are observed both by us and by our external service providers.
With the following data protection declaration we inform you in particular about the type, scope, purpose, duration and legal basis of the processing of personal data, insofar as we decide either alone or together with others about the purposes and means of the processing. In addition, we inform you below about the third-party components we use on our website for optimization purposes and to increase the quality of use, insofar as third parties in turn process data on their own responsibility.

Our privacy policy is structured as follows:
I. Data protection at a glance
II. Information about us as controller
III. Information on data processing
IV. Rights of users and data subjects
V. Definitions
VI. Legality of processing

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

I. Data protection at a glance
General information
The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website or contact us. Personal data are all data with which you can be personally identified. You will find detailed information on the subject of data protection in our privacy policy listed under this text.
Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find his contact details in the imprint of this website.
How do we collect your information?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you communicate it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form or that you send us by e-mail.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit our website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page visit). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected in order to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior. The data you provide us with will be used to answer your enquiries or to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint if you have any further questions on the subject of data protection. You also have the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority.
Third-party analysis and tools
When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can prevent this analysis by not using certain tools. You will find detailed information on this in the following data protection declaration.
External links
Our website contains links to external websites of third parties over whose contents we have no influence. Therefore we cannot take over any guarantee for it either. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is unreasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately.

The right to obtain a copy in accordance with paragraph 3 shall not prejudice the rights and freedoms of other persons.

(4) Right to rectification
You have the right to request us to correct any inaccurate personal data concerning you without delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

(5) Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’)
You have the right to request the data controller to delete personal data relating to you immediately and we are obliged to delete personal data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
a. The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
b. The data subject withdraws his/her consent on which processing was based in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) or Article 9 para. 2 (a) GDPR/DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for processing.
c. The data subject opposes processing under Article 21 para. 1 GDPR/DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing or the data subject opposes processing under Article 21 para. 2 DSGVO.
d. The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
e. The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
f. The personal data have been collected in relation to information society services provided in accordance with Article 8 para. 1 GDPR/DSGVO.
Where the data controller has made the personal data public and is obliged to delete them in accordance with paragraph 1, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, to inform data processors who process the personal data that a data subject has requested them to delete all links to such personal data or copies or replications of such personal data.

The right to erasure does not exist if the processing is necessary:
- to exercise freedom of expression and information;
- for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller;
- for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Article 9 para. 2 (h) and (i) and Article 9 para. 3 GDPR/DSGVO;
- for archiving purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes as referred to in Article 89 para. 1 GDPR/DSGVO, where the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudicial the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

(6) Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
a. the accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject for a period which enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
b. the processing is unlawful and the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted;

d. the data subject has lodged an objection to the processing referred to in Article 21(1) GDPR/DSGVO until it has been established whether the data subject's justified grounds outweigh those of the data subject.
Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the conditions set out above, such personal data shall only be processed - apart from being stored - with the consent of the data subject or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
In order to exercise the right to restrict processing, the data subject may contact us at any time using the contact details provided above.

(7) Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, current and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transmit this data to another responsible person without interference by the responsible person to whom the personal data was provided, provided that:
a. processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 (a) or Article 9 para. 2 (a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR/DSGVO; and
b. processing is carried out using automated methods.
When exercising the right to data transferability under paragraph 1, you have the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, where this is technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data transferability does not affect the right to deletion. This right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

(8) Right to object
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you under Article 6 para. 1 (e) or (f) of the GDPR/DSGVO for reasons arising from your particular situation, including profiling based on these provisions.

If personal data are 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, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
In connection with the use of Information Society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right of opposition by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
You have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 para. 1, for reasons arising from your particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.
You can exercise your right of objection at any time by contacting the person responsible.

(9) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision:
a. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller,
b. is admissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
c. with the express consent of the data subject.
The data controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the data controller, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.
The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the controller.

(10) Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
You also have, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your place of residence, of work or of the place of suspected infringement, where the data subject considers that the processing of personal data concerning him or her is contrary to this Regulation.
