2. General information and mandatory information
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state Data Protection Officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to obtain data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, or hand these over to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format.

3. Data collection on our website
The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. 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 allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases; the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data will not be merged with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us queries via the contact form, your details from the query form, including the contact details you provided therein, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent. The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The information you provide 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 is eliminated (for example, after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.
4. Plugins and tools
Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
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 requests that you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by changing the address line of the browser from "http: //” to „https: //" and the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we will need an e-mail address from you, as well as information that will allow us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data are not collected or collected only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties. The processing of the data entered into the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) (GDPR)). The granted consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation. The data deposited with us for the purpose of obtaining the newsletter is saved by us until your removal from the newsletter and deleted after the cancellation of the newsletter. This does not affect data stored with us for other purposes (such as e-mail addresses for the member area).
