We welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest. The protection of your personal data is important to us. Therefore, we conduct our activities in compliance with applicable laws on the protection of personal data and data security. We would like to inform you in the following which data of your visit will be used for which purposes.
1. what is personal data?
The term personal data is defined in the Federal Data Protection Act and in the EU Data Protection Regulation. Accordingly, this is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your civil name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.
2 Scope of anonymous data collection and data processing
Unless otherwise stated in the following sections, no personal data is collected, processed or used when using our websites. However, we do learn certain technical information through the use of analysis and tracking tools based on the data transmitted by your browser (for example, browser type/version, operating system used, web pages visited on our site incl. length of stay, previously visited web page). We evaluate this information for statistical purposes only.
3. legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) (d) DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

You have the right to receive your personal data that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

b) the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have your personal data transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this. The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
7.7 Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) DS-GVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of your personal data for such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

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 does not apply if the decision
(a) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller
b) is permissible on the basis of legal provisions of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
© is made with your explicit consent. However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9(1) DS-GVO, unless Art. 9(2)(a) or (g) applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests. With regard to the cases mentioned in a. and c., the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, which include, at a minimum, the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
7.10 Right to complain to a supervisory authority
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 residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR.

9. integration of other services and content of third parties
It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary for the display of this content. We endeavor to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.
