Right of access: In accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, you can request confirmation as to whether and what personal data we process from you. In addition, you may request from us, free of charge, information on the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage duration, the existence of a right of rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of appeal, as well as the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us. Furthermore, you have the right of access information pertaining to whether your personal data has been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, you have the right to be informed about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transmission.
Right of rectification: In accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, you can request the rectification of incorrect or incomplete personal data stored by us and concerning you.

for reasons of public interest as referred to in Art. 17 para. 3 lit. c) and d) GDPR.

the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, for a duration of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
the processing of your data is unlawful, but you refuse to have it erased and instead demand that the use of the data be restricted,
we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need the data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims
You have lodged an objection to the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, but it has not yet been established whether the legitimate reasons which entitle us to further processing outweigh your rights despite your objection.
Right to be informed: If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against us, we are obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of the correction, deletion or restriction of processing requested by you, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed by us about these recipients.
Right to data portability: In accordance with Art. 20 GDPR, you can request that we receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format or request that it be transferred to another controller.

Right of withdrawal

In accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR you have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your data at any time. The withdrawal declared by you does not change the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data up to the withdrawal.

Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you on the basis of a balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR). This is particularly the case if the data processing is not necessary for the fulfilment of a contract. If you exercise your right to object, we ask you to explain the reasons. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can prove to you that compelling reasons for data processing worthy of protection outweigh your interests and rights.

Irrespective of the above, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of advertising and data analysis.

Please send your objection to the contact address of the controller as stated above.

Privacy Policy

Our online presence on social networks

We operate an online presence within the social networks listed below. If you visit one of these sites, your usage data will be collected and processed by the respective provider. This is usually done by means of cookies, which are stored on the end device you use. For the concept of cookies, see above under the appropriate heading. Cookies are used to store your usage behaviour and interests and to create corresponding user profiles. In the user profiles, data can also be stored independently of the device you use. This is especially the case if you are a member of the respective platform and logged in to it.

Plugins in the form of “social media buttons” of the providers we use are embedded on our website. You can recognise which plugin belongs to which provider by the respective logo with which the plugin is marked. We have deactivated the social media plugins on our website by default so that data is not automatically transferred to the provider of the plugin when our pages are accessed. For this we use the so-called 2-click solution. If you want to use a plugin, you have the possibility to activate it by clicking on the corresponding button. Only then is the plugin reloaded and the collection of information and its transfer to the provider triggered. In this case, even if you do not have an account with the respective social network or if you have an account but are not logged in, data can be sent to the associated provider through the active social media plugin.

The collected data is generally used by the provider for advertising and market research purposes by creating user profiles from your usage behaviour. These in turn can be used by the providers to present you with interest-based advertising. You have a right of withdrawal against the creation of user profiles. To exercise this right, you must contact the respective provider. If you have an account with the provider, your usage data can be linked to it. In order to prevent your data from being linked in this way, you can log out of the provider’s service before visiting our site.

The purpose and the extent to which data is collected by the provider can be found out from the respective privacy policies of the providers, which are provided below. We ourselves have no influence on what data is collected and how this data is used by the provider. If you wish to request information in detail here or exercise your rights as a data subject, you can do this most effectively with the respective provider, since only the respective providers have access to your data.

We would like to point out that your user data may be transferred and processed outside the area of the European Union. In this case, there is a risk that the enforcement of your data subject rights may become more difficult. Those US providers that are certified under the Privacy Shield have committed themselves to comply with EU data protection standards. The information as to whether the respective provider has such a certificate can be found in the information on the providers listed below.

Legal basis: If you have been asked by one of the providers listed below to consent to data processing, the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit.a) GDPR. Furthermore, the processing of your data is based on our legitimate interests in contacting and communicating with you, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. 
Prevention: For the respective possibilities of objection (opt-out) we refer to the following linked information of the providers.

We maintain an online presence on the following social networks:
