Right to Data Portability
You have the right to pass on data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another controller, this will only be done to the extent that this is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS Encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by that fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" as well as by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, Blocking, Deletion
Under applicable laws, you have the right to free information on your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions about personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Objection to Promotional Emails
We hereby expressly contradict the use of the contact data published as part of our duty to publish an imprint for the purpose of sending us any advertising or informational materials that we have not expressly requested. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam emails.
3. Data Collection on Our Website
The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are filed on your computer and stored by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, to prevent the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, as well as to enable the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Server Log Files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
A merging of this data with other data sources will not be undertaken.
The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Article 6 para. 1 [a] GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or until the purpose of the data storage ceases to exist (e.g. after processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
When contacting the provider (e.g. by email), the information of the user is stored in order to process the request as well as in case any follow-up questions arise.
Registration on this Website
You can register on our website to use additional features on the site. We will only use the data entered for the purpose of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information requested when registering must be given in full. Otherwise, we will reject the registration.
For important changes, such as the scope of the offer or for technical changes, we use the email address specified during registration in order to inform you in this way.
The processing of the data entered during the registration is therefore done based on your consent (Article 6 para. 1 [a] GDPR). You can revoke a previously given consent at any time. An informal message by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the already completed data processing remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data collected during registration will be stored by us as long as you are registered on our website and will subsequently be deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
