Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent, which can be withdrawn at any time. An informal notification by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing which has been carried out prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ART. 6 PARA. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS RESULTING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS UPON WHICH THE PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT. IF YOU LODGE AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, UNLESS WE CAN PROVE THAT THERE ARE OBLIGATORY PROTECTIVE REASONS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING SERVES TO ASSERT, EXERCISE OR DEFEND LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH ART. 21 PARA. 1 GDPR).

In the event of violations of the GDPR, the affected person has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, particularly in the member state of his/her usual residence, their place of work or the location of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint exists irrespective of other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

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

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the website operator. An encrypted connection is recognisable from the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, deletion and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, at any given time you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and also the right to correction or deletion of this data if necessary. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint if you have any further questions concerning personal information.

Right to restriction of processing

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

  • If you contest the accuracy of your personal information which we have stored, we usually need some time to check this. You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data whilst the check is in progress.
  • If the processing of your personal information took place / takes place illegally, you can request the restriction of data processing rather deletion of the data.
  • If we no longer need your personal information, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal information rather than deletion.
  • If you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, weighing up must take place between your interests and ours. Until it is clear whose interests take priority, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal information.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal information, with the exception of being stored, this data may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to advertising emails

We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for the sending of unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

This data is not kept together with other data sources.

We will retain the data that you enter in the contact form until you ask for it to be deleted, revoke your consent to the storage thereof, or the reason for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.

We will retain the data that you send to us via contact requests until you ask for it to be deleted, revoke your consent to the storage thereof or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed)..

Plugins and tools

YouTube with extended data protection

This website incorporates YouTube videos. The website is operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the extended data protection mode does not necessarily preclude the passing of information to YouTube partners. For example, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is notified which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you are allowing YouTube to directly assign your surfing behaviour to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube can also store various cookies on your terminal device after a video has been started. With the aid of these cookies, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. Among other things, this information may be used to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them

Other data processing processes may be triggered when a YouTube video is started over which we do not have any influence.

YouTube is used in the interest of providing an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If appropriate consent has been requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR, and the consent can be revoked at any time.

Further information about data protection on YouTube can be found in its data protection declaration at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Google Web Fonts

This page uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. No connection to Google servers is established.
