We consider it our overriding duty to ensure the confidentiality of personal data provided by you and to protect such data from unauthorised access. To this end, we apply the utmost diligence and state-of-the-art security standards to guarantee the maximum protection of your personal data.
As a company governed by private law we are subject to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have implemented technical and organisational measures to ensure that data protection regulations are observed on our part and also by our external service providers.
The legislator requires that personal data are processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject (‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency’). To fulfil this requirement the following provides you with details of the individual statutory definitions, which are also used in this privacy statement:
Processing of personal data is only lawful if a commensurate legal basis applies. Specifically, pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) – (f) GDPR legal basis for processing can be where:
(1) The following provides you with information on the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data include, for example, name, address, email addresses, user behaviour.
(2) When you contact us by email or using a contact form, we store the data provided by you (your email address, possibly your name and telephone number) for the purposes of answering your questions. Data collected in this manner is erased once storage is no longer necessary or where processing is restricted by statutory retention requirements.
Where your use of the website is purely for information, without registration or submitting any other information, we collect solely the personal data transmitted by your browser to our server. If you wish to view our website, we will collect the following data technically required by us to display the website and ensure commensurate stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR:
(1) In addition to the aforestated data, cookies will also be stored on your computer as a result of using our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive by the browser you use and send certain information to the service provider that placed the cookie. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve to make Internet services more user-friendly and effective as a whole.
(2) This website uses the following types of cookies, the extent and functionality of which are explained below:
(1) In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we also offer a range of services for use where desired. Use of these services generally requires the provision of additional personal data that we use to render the respective service and which is subject to the aforestated data processing principles.
(2) In some cases we use external service providers to process your data. These providers are carefully selected and nominated by us, bound by our directives and also regularly controlled.
(3) We may also pass your personal data to third parties if sales promotions, competitions, contract conclusions or similar services are offered by us in cooperation with partners. Further information on this can be obtained when providing your personal data or is available below in the service offer description.
(4) Where our service providers or partners are domiciled in a state outside the European Economic Area (EEA), you will be notified of the commensurate consequences in the service offer description.
(1) With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter in order to receive details of our latest interesting offers. The goods and services advertised are stated in the consent declaration.
(2) Registration to our newsletter uses the so-called double opt-in process. Accordingly, following your registration we will send an email to the email address you have provided in which you are asked to confirm you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after a period of one month. In addition, we also store the IP addresses used by you and the time of registration and confirmation. The aim of this process is to validate your registration and, if necessary, enable clarification of any potential misuse of your personal data.
(3) The only required information to enable receipt of the newsletter is your email address. Input of additional, separately marked data is voluntary and used to personally tailor content to you. Following your confirmation, we store your email address for the purposes of sending you the newsletter. The commensurate legal basis is provided under Art 6. (1) (a) GDPR.
(4) You can withdraw your consent to sending of the newsletter and unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Consent can be withdrawn by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a message using the contact details provided in the legal notice.
(5) Please note that we evaluate your user behaviour upon dispatch of the newsletter. To facilitate such evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which create pixel image files that are stored on our website. To aid evaluation we link the data specified in S. 3 and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. Data are collected solely in pseudonymised form; IDs are not linked to your additional personal data and any direct personal reference is precluded. You can reject this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each email or by notifying us via an alternative contact channel. The information in question will be stored for as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter. Following de-registration we store the applicable data anonymously and only for statistical purposes.
(6) For the dispatch of newsletters we use an external service provider. A separate contract data processing agreement has been concluded with the service provider to ensure protection of your personal data. Currently we work with the following service provider:

You may contact us at any time to exercise the right of withdrawal.
You have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed. You can request such confirmation at any time using the aforestated contact details.

The right to erasure ('right to be forgotten') shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
You have the right to require that we restrict the processing of your personal data where one of the following applies:
Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the aforestated provisions, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the data subject's 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.

That right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your own particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6 (1), including profiling based on those provisions.

Where personal data are processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1), on grounds relating to your particular situation, you have the right to object to processing of personal data concerning you, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
You can exercise the right to object at any time by contacting the respective controller.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision:
The data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
The data subject can exercise this right at any time by contacting the respective controller.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, 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 if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes this Regulation.
Without prejudice to any available administrative or non-judicial remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77, you have the right to an effective judicial remedy where you consider that your rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of the processing of your personal data in non-compliance with this Regulation.
