Who is responsible for data collection on this website?The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find their contact details in the Legal notice of this website.
How do we collect your data?On the one hand, your data are collected when you provide it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form. Other data are automatically recorded by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (for example web browser, operating system or time of access). These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we collect your data for?Some of the data are collected to ensure that the website service can be provided faultlessly. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.
What are your rights with regard to 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 these data. You can contact us about these matters and any further questions concerning data protection at any time via the contact information in the Legal notice. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. Furthermore, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted under certain circumstances. For details, see the section "Right to restriction of processing" in this data protection declaration.
Analysis tools and third-party toolsWhen you visit our website, your browsing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is mainly done with cookies and so-called analysis programmes. Your browsing behaviour is usually analysed anonymously; the browsing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis. You can find detailed information in the following data protection declaration.
Data protectionThe operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (for example when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible bodyThe responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or the like). You can find the information on the persons responsible in the Legal notice of this website.
Revocation of your consent to data processingMany data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time. An informal message to us by e-Mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and against direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)If the data processing is based on art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons that arise from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your respective personal data, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (objection according to art. 21(1) GDPR). If your personal data are processed in order to operate direct advertising, 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 related to such direct advertising (objection according to art. 21(2) GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authorityIn the event of violations of the GDPR, the data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portabilityYou 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 common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryptionFor security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as passwords or inquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this site uses an SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion and correctionWithin the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to receive information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing, free of charge, and, if necessary, a right to correct, block or delete these data. You can contact us about these matters and any further questions concerning data protection at any time via the contact information in the Legal notice.
Right to restriction of processingYou have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

CookiesSome of the websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our service more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. You can set your browser in a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be restricted. Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you require (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log filesThe website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Contact formIf you send us inquiries using a contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on these data without your consent. The processing of the data entered in the contact form therefore takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message to us by e-Mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
