The protection of personal data is important to us. Therefore, the processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the applicable European and national legislation.
You can of course revoke your declaration(s) of consent at any time with effect for the future. Please contact the responsible person according to § 1.
The following declaration provides an overview of what kind of data is collected, how this data is used and passed on, what security measures we take to protect your data and how you can obtain information about the information given to us.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
Art. 6 para. 1 sentence b) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, the data may be stored if the European or national legislator has provided for this in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which we are subject. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless it is necessary for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

§ 2 Definitions of terms
The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Data Protection Supervisor in the adoption of the EU Basic Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as “DSGVO”). The privacy statement should be easy to read and understand. To ensure this, the most important terms are explained below:
a) Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more specific characteristics which are expressions of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
(b) Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
(c) Processing means any operation or set of operations which is carried out with or without the aid of automated processes and which is related to personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or integration, qualification, erasure or destruction.
(d) ‘profiling’ means any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or movements of that natural person.
e) Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the involvement of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(f) “controller” means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or controllers may be designated in accordance with Union law or with the law of the Member States on the basis of specific criteria.
(g) Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
(h) Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under a particular investigation mandate in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients.
(i) Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor.
j) Consent shall mean any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression by the data subject of his or her will in the particular case, in the form of a statement or other unequivocal confirmatory act, indicating that he or she consents to the processing of his or her personal data.
§ 3 Provision of the Website and Creation of Log Files
(1) If you only use the website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we automatically collect the following data and information from the computer system of the calling computer each time you access the website:
a) The IP address of the user
b) Information about the browser type and the version used
c) The user’s operating system
d) The Internet Service Provider of the User
(e) the date and time of access
(f) websites from which the User’s system accesses the Website
g) Websites accessed by the user’s system through our website
h) Content of the calls (concrete pages)
(i) the amount of data transferred in each case
(j) the language and version of the browser software
k) Search engines used
(l) names of downloaded files
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user.
(2) The legal basis for the temporary storage of log files is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. lit. f) DSGVO.
(3) The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to
a) to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
b) optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it
c) to ensure the functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website
(d) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack
The data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
(4) The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected – in this case at the end of the usage process.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage going beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses are deleted or anonymized so that it is no longer possible to assign the calling client.
(5) The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website, which is why there is no possibility of objection.
(1) This website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files which, when you visit a website, are sent by a web server to your browser and stored locally on your terminal device (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) and are stored on your computer and send certain information to the user (i.e. us). Cookies are used to make the website more customer-friendly and secure, in particular to collect use-related information, such as the frequency and number of users of the pages and how they use the pages. Cookies do not damage the computer and do not contain viruses.
This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters (so-called cookie ID) that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again.
– Language settings
– Status of Popups (e.g. Panel & Teaser)
– Entered search terms
– Frequency of page views
– Use of website functions
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
We need cookies for the following applications:
– Adoption of language settings
– Status of Popups (e.g. Panel & Teaser)
The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.
The purpose of using technically unnecessary cookies is to improve the quality of our website and its contents. The analysis cookies tell us how the website is used and enable us to continually optimise our services. This information is used to automatically recognize you when you visit the website again using the same terminal and to make navigation easier for you. Our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO also lies in these purposes.
§ 5 Passing on personal data to third parties
1. embedding YouTube videos
(1) We have included YouTube videos in our online offering which are stored on www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in the “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data referred to in paragraph 2 be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transfer. By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website.
The following data is transmitted in this case
– Device-specific information, such as the hardware used; the version of the operating system; unique device identifier; and information about the cellular network, including your phone number.
– Protocol data in the form of server protocols. This includes, but is not limited to, details of how the services were used, such as search queries; IP address; hardware settings; browser type; browser language; date and time of your query; source page; cookies that uniquely identify your browser or Google Account.
– Location-related information. Google may collect information about your actual location. This may include, for example, your IP address, WLAN access points or mobile phone masts.
– Further information on the data collected by Google, INC can be found under the following link: policies.google.com/privacy
This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged in to, or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account.
(2) The legal basis for processing users’ personal data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. f) DSGVO. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
(3) The integration of the videos serves to make the website clearer for the user and to increase the search engine ranking of the website on Google. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or the need-based design of its website. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.
(4) If you do not wish your profile to be assigned to YouTube, you must log out before activating the button.
(5) You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles and must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
(7) Links to external websites
This website contains links to external sites. We are responsible for our own content. We have no influence on the contents of external links and are therefore not responsible for them. In particular, we do not adopt their contents as our own. If you are directed to an external site, the data protection declaration provided there applies. If you notice any illegal activities or contents on this site, you are welcome to inform us. In this case we will check the content and react accordingly (notice and take down procedure).
§ 6 Contact form and e-mail contact
(1) A contact form is available on our website which can be used for electronic contact. If you make use of this possibility, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. These data are:
– First name
– Street and house number
At the time the message is sent, the following data will also be stored:
– IP address of the user
– Date and time of registration
– Spam Factor
– Time to fill in the form (in seconds)
– User agent of the user
Your consent will be obtained for the processing of the data as part of the sending process and reference will be made to this data protection declaration.
Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.
As far as information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number) is concerned, you also agree that we may also contact you via this communication channel in order to respond to your request.
The data will not be passed on to third parties in this context. The data will only be used for the processing of the conversation.
(2) The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. lit. a) DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for processing the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. f) DSGVO. If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1S. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.
(3) The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the establishment of contact. We will of course use the data from your e-mail enquiries exclusively for the purpose for which you provide them to us when contacting us. If you contact us by e-mail, your answer will also constitute the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
(4) The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been conclusively clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
(5) You have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. If you contact us by e-mail, you can object to the storage of your personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. Concerning the revocation of the consent / contradiction of the storage we ask you to contact the responsible person or the data protection officer according to § 1 via e-mail or by post. In this case, all personal data stored in the course of establishing contact will be deleted.
