General information on data processing

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

In accordance with Article 13 of the GDPR, we hereby inform you of the legal basis of our data processing. If the legal basis is not specified in the data protection notice, the following shall apply:  
The legal basis for obtaining consent is point (a) of Article 6 (1) in connection with Article 7 of the GDPR. The legal basis for processing for the fulfilment of our services and implementation of contractual measures as well as for answering enquiries shall be point (b) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR. The legal basis for processing to comply with our legal obligations is Article 6 (1) point (c) of the GDPR. If the processing of your data is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Article 6 (1) point (f) of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) point (d) of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis in this respect.

Data erasure and storage duration

We adhere to the principles of data minimisation in accordance with Article 5 (1) point (c) of the GDPR and storage limitation in accordance with Article 5 (1) point (e) of the GDPR. We will only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes stated herein or as provided for by the retention periods stipulated by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to apply or after these storage periods have expired, the corresponding data will be deleted as quickly as possible.

External links

This website may contain links to third-party websites or to other websites under our responsibility. If you follow a link to a website outside our responsibility, please note that in relation to these websites apply specific and individual data protection information. We shall not assume any responsibility or liability for these third-party websites and their data protection notices. Therefore, before using these websites, please check whether you agree with their data protection declarations.

You can recognise external links either by the fact that they are displayed in a different colour from the rest of the text or underlined. Your cursor will show you external links when you move it over such a link. Only when you click on an external link will your personal data be transmitted to the destination of the link. In particular, the operator of the other website receives your IP address, the time at which you clicked on the link, the page on which you clicked on the link and other information that you can find in the data protection information of the respective provider.

Please also note that individual links may lead to a data transfer outside the European Economic Area. This could give foreign authorities access to your data. You may not have any legal remedies against this data access. If you do not want your personal data to be transferred to the link destination or even exposed to unwanted access by foreign authorities, please do not click on any links.

Rights of the data subject

As a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR, you have the opportunity to assert various rights. The data subject rights arising from the GDPR are the right of access (Article 15), the right to rectification (Article 16), the right to erasure (Article 17), the right to restriction of processing (Article 18), the right to object (Article 21), the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority and the right to data portability (Article 20).

Right of withdrawal:

Some data processing can only take place with your express consent. You have the option to withdraw your consent at any time. However, the lawfulness of the data processing up to the point of revocation shall not be affected thereby.

Right to object:

If the processing is based on Article 6 (1) point (e) or (f) of the GDPR, you as the data subject can object to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation. You also have this right in the case of profiling based on these provisions within the meaning of Art. 4(4) GDPR. If we cannot demonstrate a legitimate interest in the processing that overrides your interests, rights and freedoms or if processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, we will refrain from processing your data after the objection has been made.

If the processing of personal data serves the purpose of direct marketing, you also have the right to object to this at any time. The same applies to profiling in connection with direct advertising. Here too, we will no longer process personal data as soon as you object.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority:

If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability:

If your data is processed automatically on the basis of consent or fulfilment of a contract, you have the right to receive this data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to request the transfer and provision of the data to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible.

Right of access, rectification and erasure:

You have the right to obtain information about your processed personal data with regard to the purpose of the data processing, the categories, the recipients and the duration of storage. If you have any questions on this topic or other topics relating to personal data, you can of course contact us using the contact details provided in the legal notice.

Right to restriction of processing:

You can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data at any time. To do so, you must fulfil one of the following requirements:

  • You contest the accuracy of the personal data. You have the right to request a restriction of processing for the duration of the verification of accuracy.
  • If the processing is unlawful, you can request the restriction of the use of the data as an alternative to erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need the data for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, you can request the restriction of processing as an alternative to erasure.
  • If you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR, your interests and ours will be weighed up. Until this balancing has taken place, you have the right to request the restriction of processing.

Restriction of processing means that, with the exception of storage, personal data may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

Provision of the website (web host)

When you visit our website, we automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files. Your browser automatically transmits this information to our server or to the server of our hosting company.

These are:

  • IP address of the website visitor’s end device
  • Device used
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Operating system of the visitor
  • Browser type and version
  • Name of the retrieved file
  • Time of the server request
  • Amount of data
  • Information on whether the retrieval of the data was successful

This data is not merged with other data sources.

Instead of operating this website on our own server, we can also have it operated on the server of an external service provider (hosting company), which we have named above in this case. The personal data collected by this website will then be stored on the hosting company's servers. In addition to the data mentioned above, the web host also stores, for example, contact requests, contact data, names, website access data, meta and communication data, contract data and other data generated via a website for us.

The legal basis for the processing of this data is Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of this website. If the website is accessed in order to enter into contractual negotiations with us or to conclude a contract, a further legal basis is set out in Article 6(1) point (b) of the GDPR. In the event that we have commissioned a hosting company, there will exist an order processing contract with this service provider.

Use of local storage items, session storage items and cookies

Our website uses local storage items, session storage items and/or cookies. Local storage is a mechanism that enables the storage of data within the browser on your end device. This data usually contains user preferences, such as the "day" or "night" mode of a website, and is retained until you delete the data manually. Session storage is very similar to local storage, whereas the storage period only lasts during the current session, i.e. until the current tab is closed. The session storage items are then deleted from your end device. Cookies are information that a web server (server that provides web content) stores on your end device in order to be able to identify this end device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) and deleted at the end of your visit to a website or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device until you delete them yourself or they are automatically deleted by your web browser.

These objects may also be stored on your device by third-party companies when you visit our website (third-party requests). This enables us as the operator and you as a visitor to this website to utilise certain third-party services that are installed on this website. Examples of this include the processing of payment services or the display of videos.

These mechanisms can be used in a variety of ways. They can improve the functionality of a website, control shopping cart functions, increase the security and convenience of website use and carry out analyses of visitor flows and behaviour. Depending on the individual functions, these must be categorised under data protection law. If they are necessary for the operation of the website and intended to provide certain functions (shopping cart function) or serve to optimise the website (e.g. cookies to measure visitor behaviour), they are used on the basis of point (f) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR. As the website operator, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of local storage items, session storage items and cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of our services. In all other cases, local storage items, session storage items and cookies will be only stored with your express consent (as set out in Article 6 (1) point (a) of the GDPR).

Insofar as local storage items, session storage items or cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this separately within the scope of this data protection notice. Your required consent will be requested and can be revoked at any time.

Consent Management

To comply with legal data protection requirements, we use a consent management tool on our website. We use this tool to obtain the necessary consent for the setting of cookies or the use of external services. The consents will be stored accordingly.

The processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller (website operator) is subject. The legal basis for processing will therefore refer to point (c) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR.

TYPO3 Extension Cookie Consent

We use the Typo3 Extension Cookie Consent service on our website. The provider of the service is Dirk Persky, Bergstrasse 16, 99734 Nordhausen, Germany.

As this service is hosted locally on the web server, there will therefore be no data transfer to third parties.

The service uses the following cookies on our website:
