In the following, we provide you with information about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data means all data that relate directly to you, for example, your name, address, email addresses and user behavior. We have taken extensive technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons. Our security procedures are reviewed regularly and updated according to the state of technology.

3 Your rights
With regard to your personal data, you have the following rights towards us:
3.1 General rights
You have the right of information, to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection to processing and to data portability. If the processing is based on your consent, then you have the right to revoke this consent with future effect at any time.
3.2 Rights relating to data processing based on legitimate interest
In accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, you have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to any processing of your personal data that is based on Art. 6 (1) point (e) GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or based on Art. 6 (1) point (f) GDPR (data processing to safeguard a legitimate interest), including profiling based on those provisions. If a right to object is asserted, then your personal data will no longer be processed by us, unless we are able to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
3.3 Rights relating to direct marketing
Should we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right, in accordance with Art. 21 (2) GDPR, to object at any time to any processing of your personal data for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
In case you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes.
3.4 Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
You also have the right to submit complaints to competent data protection supervisory authorities concerning our processing of your personal data.
4 Collection of personal data when visiting our website
In case of a merely informative use of the website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we will only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we will collect the following data, which are technically necessary for us so that we are able to display our website and ensure its stability and security. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) point (f) GDPR:
IP address, date and time of the request, contents of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, the transferred data volume, website from which the request originates, browser, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software.
5 Communication by e-mail or contact form
When you contact us by e-mail or using a contact form, we will store the data provided by you (your e-mail address, your name and your telephone number, if applicable) to answer your questions. Insofar as our contact form requests information which is not required for communication, we have always labelled such information as optional. We use this information to substantiate your request and to optimize the handling of your query. You explicitly communicate this information on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 (1) point (a) GDPR. Insofar as this information concerns communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, phone number), you also consent to us contacting you over this communication channel, if applicable, to answer your query. Of course, you may withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.
We will delete the data that arise in this context after their storage is no longer required, or will restrict the processing if statutory storage obligations apply.
6 Transfer of data
We generally do not transfer your data to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so or such disclosure is required to perform a contractual relationship, or you have expressly consented to the disclosure of your data in advance.
We attach great importance to processing your data inside the EU / the EEA. It may happen, however, that we use service providers who process data outside of the EU / the EEA. In such cases, we ensure that an appropriate level of data protection is established by the recipient prior to the transfer of your personal data. This means that, by means of EU standard agreements or a decision on adequacy, such as the EU Privacy Shield, a level of data protection is achieved which is comparable to the standards inside the EU.
7 Data security
We have taken extensive technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons. Our security procedures are reviewed regularly and updated according to the state of technology.
