The data controller in terms of data protection law, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is:
Using the contact details provided for our data protection officer, you can exercise the following rights, at any time:
If you have given us your consent, you can revoke this at any time with future effect.
You can contact your supervisory authority with a complaint at any time. Your supervisory authority will depend on the federal state in which you live or work or in which the suspected infringement has occurred.
We only process your personal data for the purposes stated in this privacy statement. We do not transfer your personal data to third parties for any purposes other than those stated. We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
the processing is required for the safeguarding of legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data.
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary for the achievement of the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by the legislator. Once the data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected or these periods have expired, it is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with the legal regulations.
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of internet browser and operating system used, the domain name of your internet provider and other similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow you to be identified.
This information is required for technical reasons in order to correctly provide the content you have requested from our web pages and is necessarily required for use of the internet. It is used for the following purposes in particular:
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest arising from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to identify you. The only recipients of the data are the data controller and, possibly, order processors.
Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard disk. We thereby automatically receive certain data, such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system and your connection to the internet, for example.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Using the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our web pages to be displayed correctly.
The data collected by us will under no circumstances be passed on to third parties and no link will be made to personal data without your consent.
In order to protect the security of your data during transfer, we use the current state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
If users leave comments on our website, the time of their creation and the user name chosen beforehand by the website visitor are stored in addition to the comments themselves. This is for our security, as we can be prosecuted for unlawful content on our website, even if this is created by users.
If you contact us regarding queries of any kind by email or using the contact form, you are voluntarily giving us permission to contact you. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide a valid email address. This helps us to assign the query and subsequently reply to it. The provision of other data is optional. The details provided by you are stored for the purpose of dealing with the query and any possible subsequent queries. Once your query has been dealt with, the personal data is automatically erased.
We embed YouTube videos in some of our web pages. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is created to YouTube's servers. Youtube is thereby informed about which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can attribute your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program, such cookies will not be saved when you view YouTube videos. However, YouTube also files non-personal user information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you need to block the saving of cookies in your browser.
Further information regarding data protection with «YouTube» is available in the provider's privacy statement at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
We reserve the right to adapt this privacy statement to ensure that it always meets the current legal requirements or in order to incorporate changes to our services into our privacy statement, e.g. when launching new services. The new privacy statement will then apply to your next visit.
