General information about data processing
Be aware that the transmission of data on the internet (e.g. communication by email) is subject to security gaps. Access by third parties may not be completely prevented.
To protect your personal data from the risk of manipulation, loss, destruction and unauthorised access, we have put organizational and technical security measures. However, any such risks can’t be fully eliminated.
We keep this data protection policy up to date. Occasionally, we might have to adapt this policy to changes. Please refer to the latest version of our data protection policy.
Processing of personal data
Personal data comprises information about your identity like e.g. name, address, phone number and email address. These data is only used to provide the services requested, to continuously improve our website and to preserve our company’s qualified business interests. By providing your personal data, you agree to receive advertising and service information by mail, email and phone.
The processing of your personal data normally takes place only after consent has been provided by you. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Legal Basis for the processing of personal data
Article 6, paragraph 1a EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis insofar as we obtain the consent of the affected person for the purposes of processing personal data.
Article 6, paragraph 1b DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the affected person is a party. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual actions.
Article 6, paragraph 1c DSGVO serves as the legal basis insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject.
Article 6, paragraph 1d DSGVO serves as the legal basis in the event that vital interests of the affected person or another natural person require the processing of personal data.
Article 6, paragraph 1f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legal interest of our company or of a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the affected person prevail over the first-mentioned interest.
Deletion of data and duration of storage
Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to exist. In addition, storage may also occur if this storage is intended by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other guidelines to which the responsible authority is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also occurs upon the expiration of a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
Provision of the website and creation of log files
To use our website, you are not required to disclose personal information. We also only save and use information that has been voluntarily provided to us and, where applicable, data that we collect automatically when our website is visited:
- IP address
- pages you visited
- date and time of the access
- browser, search engines and operating system you used
- downloaded files
These data are also stored in our system’s log files. The anonymization of the IP address does not lead to the storage of data which could facilitate their correlation with you. Storage of these data does not occur together with other personal data of you.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics on our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behaviour of users on websites. A web analysis service collects, for example, data on which website the user came from, which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and that make it possible to analyze your use of the website. Cookies are used to store personal data, such as access time, the location from which access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the user.
Use of Google Maps

Use of Facebook
We use the social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”) on our website. The plugins are recognisable by one of the Facebook logos. For more information on Facebook’s plug ins please go to: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you call up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, your device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your device and integrated into the online offer. The processed data can be used to create user profiles. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data Facebook collects with the help of this plugin, and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives information that you have accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. When you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store your IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany. For more information please go to:https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
In order to prevent that Facebook associate said information with your account, please log off your Facebook account and delete your cookies before visiting our website.
Use of LinkedIn
On our website we use plugins of the network LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time our website receives an access request equipped with a LinkedIn plugin, the plugin prompts your browser to download an image of this component from LinkedIn.
Through this process, LinkedIn is informed exactly which page of our website is being accessed. By clicking the LinkedIn “Recommend” button while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link content from our website to your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to associate your visit to our site with your LinkedIn account.
Use of Google+
On our webstie we use Google+ functions. Google+ is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Using the Google +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. By means of the Google+ button, you and other users can receive custom content from Google. Google stores both the fact that you have +1’d a piece of content and information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be displayed together with your profile name and photo in Google services, for example in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet. Furthermore, Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others.
Your rights as a affected person
If your personal data is processed, you are the “affected person” within the meaning of the DSGVO and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the responsible individual or authority:
Right to Information
You can demand that the responsible individual or authority confirm or deny whether we process personal data that apply to you.
If such processing exists, you can demand that the responsible individual or authority provide you with the following information:
(1) the purposes for which the personal data are processed;
(2) the categories of personal data which are being processed;
(3) the recipients or the categories of recipients to whom the personal data were disclosed or are still being disclosed;
(4) the planned duration of the storage of the personal data that apply to you or, if specific information about this is not available, the criteria for determining the duration of storage;
(5) the existence of the right to rectification or deletion of personal data that apply to you, the right to restrict their processing by the responsible individual or authority, or the right to object to this processing;
(6) the existence of a right to appeal to a supervisory authority;
(7) all available information about the source of the data if the personal data were not obtained directly from the affected person;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 paragraph 1 and 4 DSGVO and – at least in these cases – meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as about the scope of such processing and its intended consequences for the affected person.
You have the right to demand information about whether your personal data will be shared with a third country or an international organization. In this context, you can demand notification about the appropriate guarantees related to the transmission of the data in accordance with Art. 46 DSGVO.
Right to Rectification
You have the right to rectify and/or augment the data vis-à-vis the responsible individual or authority, insofar as the processed personal data that apply to you are incorrect or incomplete. The responsible individual or authority must make the correction(s) without delay.
Right to Restriction of Processing
Under the following conditions, you can demand the restriction of the processing of the personal data that apply to you:
(1) if you contest the accuracy of the personal data that apply to you for a period of time that enables the responsible individual or authority to verify the correctness of the personal data;
(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion of the personal data, demanding instead that the use of the personal data be restricted;
(3) the responsible individual or authority no longer needs the data for processing purposes, but you need the data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
(4) if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 paragraph 1 DSGVO and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate needs of the responsible individual or authority outweigh your reasons.
If the processing of personal data that apply to you has been restricted, these data – with the exception of their storage – may only be used with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or one of its member states.
If the restriction of the processing according to the abovementioned conditions is curtailed, you will be notified by the responsible individual or authority before the restriction is lifted.
Right to Deletion
a) Obligation to Delete
If one of the following reasons exists, then you can demand that the responsible individual or authority immediately delete the personal data which apply to you and the responsible individual or authority is obliged to delete these data without delay:
(1) The personal data that apply to you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent, under Art. 6 paragraph 1a or Art. 9 paragraph 2a DSGVO, upon which the processing is based, and no other legal basis exists for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing under Art. 21 paragraph 1 DSGVO and no superseding legal reasons exist for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 paragraph 2
(4) The personal data that apply to you were unlawfully processed.
(5) The deletion of the personal data that apply to you is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation according to the law of the European Union or the law of the member states to which the responsible individual or authority is subject.
(6) The personal data that apply to you were collected in relation to services offered by the information company according to Art. 8, paragraph 1 DSGVO.
b) Information to Third Parties
If the responsible individual or authority has made public personal data that apply to you, and if the responsible individual or authority is obliged to delete these data pursuant to Art. 17 Abs. 1 DSGVO, then the responsible individual or authority shall undertake appropriate activities, including activities of a technical nature, taking into consideration the available technology and the cost of implementation, to notify the individuals or authorities responsible for processing the personal data, that you, as the affected person, have demanded the deletion of all links to these personal data or to copies or replications of these personal data.
The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary for one or more of the following purposes:
(1) to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
(2) to fulfil a legal obligation required by the law of the European Union or the law of the member states to which the responsible individual or authority is subject, or to perform a task of public interest or to exercise official powers which have been conferred upon the responsible individual or authority;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 paragraph. 2h and i and Art. 9 paragraph 3 DSGVO;
(4) for archival purposes of public interest, for purposes of scientific or historical research, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 paragraph 1 DSGVO, insofar as the law referred to under Subparagraph a) is likely to render impossible, or to exert a serious deleterious influence on, the achievement of the purposes of this processing; or
(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to Notification
If you have exercised the right to rectification, deletion or restriction vis-à-vis the responsible individual or authority, this person or authority is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data that apply to you have been disclosed about this rectification or deletion of the data and about the restriction in the data’s processing, unless such notification proves to be impossible or would involve a disproportionately great effort.
You have the right to demand that the responsible individual or authority inform you about these recipients.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to receive the personal data that apply to you and that you have provided to the responsible individual or authority in a structured, commonplace and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit these data to another responsible individual or authority, without hindrance by the individual or authority to whom or to which the personal data were originally provided, insofar as:
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1a DSGVO or Art. 9 paragraph 2a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1b DSGVO and
(2) the processing is done by automated means.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to demand that the personal data which apply to you are transmitted directly from one responsible individual or authority to another responsible individual or authority, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not infringe upon the freedoms and rights of other persons.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data which are necessary for the performance of a task that lies in the public interest or that occurs in the exercise of official authority which was conferred upon the responsible individual or authority.
Right of Objection
You have the right at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object to the processing of the personal data that apply to you and which occurs on pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1e or f DSGVO; this right also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The responsible individual or authority will no longer process the personal data that apply to you unless this responsible individual or authority can prove that there exist urgent reasons, worthy of protection, for such processing and that these reasons outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data that apply to you are processed for the purpose of conducting direct advertising, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of these personal data for purposes of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.
If you object to the processing for the purposes of direct advertising, the personal data that apply to you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
Regardless of Directive 2002/58/EG, you have the option, in the context of the use of services provided by the information company, to exercise your right of objection via automated means in which technical specifications are utilized.
Right to Revoke the Data Protection Consent Declaration
You have the right at any time to revoke your Data Protection Consent Declaration. Your revocation of consent does not affect the legality of processing which occurred based on your consent prior to your revocation of same.
Automated Decision on a Case-by-Case Basis, Including Profiling
You have the right to not be subjected to a decision based exclusively upon automated processing, including profiling, which will have a legal effect or which exerts significantly deleterious effects on you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision:
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the responsible individual or authority;
(2) is permitted by European Union legislation or legal provisions of member states to which the responsible individual or authority is subject, and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or
(3) occurs with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9, paragraph 1 DSGVO, insofar as Art. 9, paragraph 2a or g DSGVO does not apply and suitable measures have been taken to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible individual or authority shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the responsible individual or authority, to express one’s own position, and to challenge the decision.
Right to Complain to a Supervisory Authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, especially to an authority in the member state in which you reside, in which you work, or which contains the location of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of the personal data that apply to you violates the DSGVO.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint was submitted shall notify the complainant about the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 DSGVO
