Data is processed on this website by the website operator. The operator’s contact details can be found in the website’s required legal notice.
How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data will be collected when you communicate it to us. This could, for example, be data you enter on a contact form.

You also have the right to request that it be corrected, blocked, or deleted.

You may also, of course, file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities.

Revoking your consent to the processing of your data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal message sent to us by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing performed prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection statement. If you lodge your objection, we will no longer process the personal data that concerns you, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (objection on the basis of Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR).
Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such advertising, including profiling to the extent it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for purposes of direct marketing (objection on the basis of Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).
Right to file complaints with the regulatory authorities
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the persons concerned shall have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, particularly in the member state of their habitual residence, workplace or place of presumed infringement. The right of complaint exists 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 fulfilment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent 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 recognise an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Disclosure, blocking, deletion and correction
As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided with information free of charge at any time about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.
Right to request restriction of 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 stated on our site notice page. The right to restrict the processing is given in the following cases:
Where processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data, apart from being stored, may be processed only with your consent, or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person, or on the grounds of an important public interest of the European Union or a member state.
Objection to promotional e-mails
We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational material not expressly requested. The website operator expressly reserves the right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited marketing material is received, for example, spam e-mails.

This data will not be combined with data from other sources.
This data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically fault-free display and optimisation of its website; for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded.
Enquiry by e-mail, phone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, phone or fax, your request, including all ensuing personal data (name, nature of enquiry), is stored and processed by us for the purposes of processing your request. We do not share this data without your permission.
This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request relates to the execution of a contract or is required to carry out pre-contractual activities. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/or our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) as we have a legitimate interest in the effective handling of the requests addressed to us.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until its deletion is requested, your consent for storage is revoked, or the purpose for its storage is no longer applicable (e.g. after the handling of your enquiry has been completed). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected.
