The Controller’s Data Protection Officer is:
Pursuant to Art. 13 GDPR, we inform you about the legal basis for our data processing activities. If the legal basis is not specifically mentioned in the privacy notice, the following shall apply:
The legal basis for obtaining consent is Art. 6 para. 1 (a) in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR. The legal basis for processing to fulfill our services and perform contractual measures as well as for responding to inquiries is Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR. The legal basis for processing to fulfill our legal obligations is Art. 6 para. 1 (c) GDPR. If the processing of your data is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
We adhere to the principles of data minimization according to Art. 5(1) (c) GDPR and storage limitation according to Art. 5(1) (e) GDPR. We only store your personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for by the storage periods prescribed by the legislator. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or after the expiry of these storage periods, the corresponding data will be deleted as soon as possible.
Tools from companies based in third countries (including the USA) are also integrated on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transmitted to the servers of the respective companies. The level of data protection in third countries usually does not correspond to EU data protection law. Therefore, there is a risk that your data may be disclosed to authorities of these countries. We have no influence on these processing activities.
This website may contain links to third-party websites or to other websites under our responsibility. If you follow a link to one of the websites outside of our responsibility, please note that these websites have their own privacy information. We do not assume any responsibility or liability for these foreign websites and their privacy notices. Therefore, before using these websites, please check whether you agree with their privacy policies.
Please also note that individual links may lead to a transfer of data outside the European Economic Area. This may give foreign authorities access to your data. You may not have any legal remedies against these data accesses. If you do not want your personal data to be transmitted to the link destination or even exposed to access by foreign authorities, please do not click on any links.
As a data subject under the GDPR, you have the possibility to exercise various rights. The data subject rights arising from the GDPR are the right to information (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 to withdraw consent:
Some data processing can only be carried out with your explicit consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, the lawfulness of the data processing carried out before the withdrawal of consent is not affected by this.
The right to object:
If the processing of your personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right as the data subject, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. This right also applies to profiling based on these provisions within the meaning of Art. 4 no. 4 GDPR. If we cannot demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, we will cease the processing of your data after you have objected to it.
If the processing of personal data serves the purpose of direct advertising, you also have the right to object at any time. The same applies to profiling that is associated with direct advertising. In these cases, we will stop processing personal data as soon as you object.
Right to complain to a supervisory authority:
If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. This includes the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in the member state of your residence, place of work, or the place of the alleged violation.
Right of data portability:
If your data is processed automatically based on consent or the fulfillment of a contract, you have the right to receive this data in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. Additionally, you have the right to demand the transfer and provision of the data to another controller, as far as this is technically feasible.
Right of access, rectification and deletion:
You have the right to obtain information about your processed personal data regarding the purpose of data processing, the categories, the recipients, and the duration of storage. If you have any questions on this topic or other topics related to personal data, you can of course contact us via the contact information provided in the imprint.
Right to restriction of processing:
You can always request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do so, you must meet one of the following requirements:
A restriction on processing means that, apart from storage, the processing of personal data may only take place with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense 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.

When you access our website, we automatically collect and store information in server log files. Your browser automatically transmits this information to our server or to the server of our hosting company.
These data will not be merged with other data sources.
The legal basis for processing this data is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the technically error-free presentation and optimization of this website.
Instead of operating this website on our own server, we can also have it hosted on the server of an external service provider (hosting company).

Our website uses Local Storage Items, Session Storage Items and/or cookies. Local storage is a mechanism that allows data to be stored within the browser on your device. This data usually includes user preferences, such as the "day" or "night" mode of a website and remains stored until you manually delete the data. Session Storage is very similar to Local Storage, but the storage duration only lasts during the current session, until you close the current tab. After that, the Session Storage Items are deleted from your device. Cookies are pieces of information that a web server (server that provides web content) stores on your device to be able to identify it. They are either temporary for the duration of a session (session cookies) and are deleted after you leave a website, or permanent (persistent cookies) and stored on your device until you delete them yourself or an automatic deletion occurs by your web browser.
These objects can also be stored on your device by third-party companies when you visit our site (third-party requests). This allows us as the operator and you as the visitor of this website to use certain services from third parties that are installed on this website. Examples of this are the processing of payment services or the display of videos.
These mechanisms have various applications. They can improve the functionality of a website, control shopping cart functions, increase the security and comfort of website use, and perform analyses of visitor flows and behavior. Depending on the individual functions, they must be classified in terms of data protection. If they are necessary for the operation of the website and intended to provide certain functions (shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e.g. cookies to measure visitor behavior), their use is based on Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. As a website operator, we have a legitimate interest in storing local storage items, session storage items, and cookies for the technically flawless and optimized provision of our services. In all other cases, the storage of local storage items, session storage items, and cookies only takes place with your express consent (Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR).
As far as local storage items, session storage or cookies are used by third-party companies or for analytical purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the scope of this data protection notice. Your required consent will be requested and can be revoked at any time.
External services are used on our website. External services are services provided by third-party providers that are used on our website. This can be done for various reasons, such as embedding videos or ensuring the security of the website. When using these services, personal data is also transmitted to the respective providers of these external services. If we do not have a legitimate interest in using these services, we will obtain your revocable consent as a visitor to our website before use (Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR).
To comply with data protection requirements, we use a consent management tool on our website. With this tool, we obtain the necessary consent for setting cookies or using external services.
