Data subjects can contact our data protection officer directly at any time with all questions and suggestions regarding data protection.
A data protection declaration must clearly indicate the handling of personal data on the website. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
3.1 Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier (e.g. IP address or cookies) or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means. This basically includes any handling of personal data such as collection, storage, modification, use, transmission, dissemination, deletion or destruction, etc.
A controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. The controller shall ensure the permissibility of data processing by implementing technical and organisational measures which are to be regularly reviewed.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data cannot be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
3.5 Order Processor
A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.
3.7 Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
Consent is an expression of self-determination under data protection law. It is the voluntary, informed and unequivocal expression of will in the specific case, in the form of a declaration or any other clearly affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her. Any consent given may be withdrawn at any time.
4. General information on data processing
4.1 Scope of the collection of personal data
In general, we only collect data that we need to provide our services. The collection and use of your personal data is regularly only carried out with your consent or if the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
4.2 On which legal basis we process your personal data
Paragraph 6 of the DSGVO provides for the processing of personal data only if certain conditions are met. This means that the processing of personal data is fundamentally unlawful unless consent has been given or the processing is permitted by a legally regulated reason for consent.
Should we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
In the case of processing operations which are necessary for the performance of a contract concluded between you and us or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, such as statutory retention and storage obligations, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO is the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard our interests or the legitimate interests of a third party and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, the processing of personal data is legitimised by Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO.
4.3 Transfer of your personal data to third parties and processors
In principle, your data will only be passed on to third parties with your express consent, unless it is a legal obligation which we must comply with.
In order to provide our network services, we use service providers who act within the framework of order processing on the basis of Art.28 DSGVO.
This means that our order processors are carefully selected and bound by our instructions.
4.4. Transfer of data to third countries
The DSGVO guarantees an equally high level of data protection within the European Union. Accordingly, we only permit a transfer of your personal data to a third country if the conditions of Article 44 DSGVO are met.
More precisely, this means that your data may only be processed if special guarantees are provided.
4.5 Deletion of data and storage duration
In accordance with the DSGVO, all personal data is deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was collected no longer exists. Unless there are reasons in accordance with Article 17 paragraph 3 DSGVO that prevent deletion.
4.6 Existence of automated decision making
We do without automatic decision making or profiling.
5. Rights of data subjects
If we process personal data from you, you are affected in the sense of the DSGVO. You have the following rights towards us, as the person responsible
5.1 Right to withdraw a declaration of consent under data protection law

- You object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing
- The personal data were processed unlawfully.
- The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States.
If the personal data concerning you has been made public by us, we are obliged, in the event of the requested deletion, to take appropriate measures, including technical measures, to ensure the deletion of your data, taking into account the available technologies and implementation costs.
You do not have the right of cancellation ("right to be forgotten") insofar as the processing is necessary:
- in order to comply with a legal obligation requiring processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which we are subject or in the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
- for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO;
- for archival, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 Para. 1 DPA, insofar as the right of erasure is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the attainment of the purposes of such processing, or
- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
5.5 Right to limit processing
You have the right to ask us to limit the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
- You contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- the processing is unlawful and you request instead of the deletion the restriction of the use of the personal data
- we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you do need the data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
- You have lodged an objection to the processing as long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.
If processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, such personal data - apart from being stored - will be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of major public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction on processing is restricted in accordance with the above conditions, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
5.6 Right to data portability
You have the right to obtain the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer such data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that the processing is based on consent or on a contract and is carried out using automated procedures.
5.7 Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you. We will then no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, your personal data will no longer be processed for those purposes.
5.8 Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
You have the right to complain to the supervisory authority if you believe that the processing or storage of personal data concerning you violates the DSGVO.
