1. Data protection at a glance
Data collection on our website
Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find their contact information in the legal notice of this website.
How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data will be collected when you communicate it to us. For example, this may involve data that you enter into a contact form.
Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. These data are primarily technical data such as the browser and operating system you are using or when you accessed the page. This data is collected automatically as soon as you visit our website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure the proper functioning of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You always have the right to request information about your stored data, its origin, its recipients, and the purpose of its collection at no charge. You also have the right to request that it be corrected, blocked, or deleted. You can contact us at any time at the address indicated in the legal notice if you have any additional questions about data protection. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.
2. General and mandatory information
We would like to point out that transmitting data over the Internet (such as communications by email) may result in security gaps. Complete protection of your data against third-party access is impossible.
The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g., names, email addresses, or similar).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. To do so, an informal message by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out before revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and direct marketing (Art. 21 of the GDPR)
If your personal data are processed to operate direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this is also applicable to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 2 of the GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work, or the place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another data controller, this shall only take place to the extent that is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the enquiries you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://,” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion, and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, the right to correct, block, or delete these data. For this purpose, as well as for any other questions relating to the use of personal data, you may contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the check, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If the processing of your personal data happened/happens unlawfully, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of the deletion.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend, or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of being deleted.
If you have an objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR, your interests and ours must be assessed. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data, apart from their storage, may only be obtained with your consent or to assert, exercise, or defend 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 that of a Member State.
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are what are 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.
You can set your browser so that you are informed each time that a cookie is about to be set, decide to allow cookies on a case-by-case basis, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and set up cookies to be automatically deleted when you close the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in "server log files", which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
– Browser type and browser version
– Your operating system
– Referrer URL
– Host name of the accessing computer
– Time of the server request
– IP address
We do not make any attempt to match this data with data received from other sources.
These data are recorded on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of their website and the server log files must be collected for this purpose.
Inquiry via email, telephone, or fax
If you contact us via email, phone, or fax, your inquiry, including all personal data resulting from it (name, inquiry), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your inquiry. This data will not be disclosed to others without your consent.
These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us.
The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular statutory retention periods, remain unaffected.
