The name and contact details of the responsible person are stated in the Legal Information.
Please contact the persons listed in the Legal Information if you have questions regarding data protection.
We always delete your personal data when it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
If we have requested your consent and you have given it, we delete your personal data when you withdraw your consent and there is no other legal basis for processing the data.
We delete your personal data when you object to its processing and there are no superordinated legitimate reasons for its processing or you object to its processing for the purpose of direct advertising or related profiling.
If the data cannot be deleted because it still has to be processed for fulfilling a legal obligation (statutory retention period, etc.) that applies to us or for asserting, enforcing or defending legal claims, we restrict the processing of your personal data.
Further information on storage periods is provided in the following sections.
You have the following rights against us with regard to your personal data:
- Right to information
- Right to rectification
- Right to erasure
- Right to restrict the processing
- Right to object to processing
- Right to data portability
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. e or f GDPR at any time for reasons resulting from your specific situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. In this case, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we have proof of compelling protectable reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing takes place to assert, enforce or defend legal claims.
If we process your personal data for direct advertising purposes, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for such advertising purposes at any time. This also applies to any profiling linked to such direct advertising. In this case, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes.
You have the right to withdraw any consent you have given us for the processing of your personal data at any time. The withdrawal of your consent does not affect the legitimacy of the processing activities that were carried out on the basis of your consent until the date of withdrawal.
You have the right to complain about our processing of your personal data with a supervisory authority.
Provision of your personal data
You generally do not have to provide your personal data, neither by law nor contract, and it is not required for the conclusion of a contract. You are generally not obliged to provide your personal data. Should this be the case after all in an exceptional situation, we will point this out separately to you (e.g. by marking the mandatory fields in a form).
Failure to provide your personal data regularly results in us not processing your personal data for one of the following purposes and you being unable to enjoy the offer related to our processing activities (e.g. you cannot receive our newsletter if you do not provide your email address).
Information (such as requested elements, URL accessed, operating system, date and time of query, browser type and version, IP address, protocol used, transferred data volume, user agent, referrer URL, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and/or HTTP status code) is stored in logfiles (access log, error log, etc.).
We use encryption for our domain for security reasons and to protect the transfer of your personal data and other confidential contents. You can recognise this by the characters “https://” and the lock symbol in the address bar of your browser.
If you contact us, we process your personal data to process your enquiry.
If we have requested your consent and you have given it, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. If we have not requested your consent, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the processing of your enquiry. If the processing is required for the fulfilment of a contract with you or for implementing contractual measures due to your enquiry, the legal basis for the processing is also Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR.
Social media presence
We maintain social media channels with external service providers to communicate through them with users and therefore optimise our online presence and marketing.
If we have requested your consent and you have given it, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. If we have not requested your consent, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the optimisation of our online presence and marketing.
When using the external service providers, profiling (for purposes of advertising, personalised information, etc.) can also occur. Profiling can also occur across several services and devices. You can find further information on the services used, the scope of the data processing activities and technologies and methods when using the respective services and on the question if profiling occurs when using the respective services, as well as potential information on the logic involved and also the reach and desired effects of such processing for you in the additional information on the services used by us at the end of this section and by clicking on the links provided there.
