Right to object to data recorded in particular cases as well as against direct advertising (Article 21 GDPR)
WHERE YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES, YOU SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR SUCH MARKETING, WHICH INCLUDES PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS RELATED TO THIS TYPE OF DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT TO PROCESSING FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES, YOUR PERSONAL DATA SHALL NO LONGER BE PROCESSED FOR SUCH PURPOSES (RIGHT TO OBJECT IN ACCORDANCE WITH ARTICLE 21 (2) GDPR).
Right to lodge an objection with the relevant supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, the data subject is entitled to a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their usual place of residence, their workplace, or the place of the alleged breach. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have the data that we process on an automated basis based on your consent, or in fulfilment of the contract, sent to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will take place only in as far as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you send to us, as the page operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can identify an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address line changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock symbol appears in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be also read by third parties.
Information, erasure and rectification
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to receive free-of-charge information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing and, where applicable, a right to rectification or erasure of these data. To exercise this right and if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at the address stated in the legal information at any time.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data. To exercise this right, you can contact us at the address stated in the legal information at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us we generally need time to check this. For the duration of this checking process, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data took place/is taking place illegally, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of its erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data but you need them for the exercise, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data instead of their erasure.
- If you have lodged a complaint in accordance with Article 21 (1) GDPR, balancing of your and our interests must be performed. For as long as it is not yet established whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may only be processed – except for their storage – with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

If corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of point a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.
Server log files
The provider of the pages records and saves information automatically in server log files, which your browser automatically transfers to us. This information is:
- Your browser type and browser version
- The operating system you use
- The referrer URL
- The hostname of the computer from which the page is accessed
- The time of the server request

These data are not brought together with other data sources.
These data are recorded on the basis of point f) of Article 6 (1) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically flawless presentation and optimisation of its website – server log files must be recorded to achieve this.
If you send us queries via the contact form, your information from the request form, including the contact details you state there, are stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and for the event of follow-up requests. We do not pass these data on without your consent.
These data are processed on the basis of point b) of Article 6 (1) GDPR, in as far as your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (point f) of Article 6 (1) GDPR), or on your consent (point a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR) in as far as this has been requested.
The data you enter in the contact form remain with us until you request their erasure, revoke your consent to their storage, or the purpose of data processing expires (e.g. after your request has been fully processed). Binding legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Binding legal provisions – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
Comment function on this website
In addition to your comment, information on the time the comment was created, your email address, and – if you do not post anonymously – the username you have selected are stored for the comment function on this website.
Storage of the IP address
Our comment function stores the IP address of the users writing the comments. As we do not review comments on this website before they are posted, we need these data to enable us to issue proceedings against the author in the event of legal breaches such as slander or propaganda.
Subscribing to comments
As a user of the page, you can subscribe to comments after signing in. You will receive a confirmation email to check whether you are the owner of the stated email address. You can unsubscribe from this function at any time using a link in the information email. The data entered in the course of subscribing to comments will be erased if you do this; if you have transferred these data to us for other purposes and in another place (e.g. by signing up to the newsletter), they will however remain with us.
Storage period for comments
The comments and associated data (e.g. IP address) are stored and remain on this website until the content that was commented on has been completely deleted or the comments need to be deleted for legal reasons (e.g. libellous comments).
The comments are stored on the basis of your consent (point a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR). Once issued, you can revoke your consent at any time. An informal email notification to us is sufficient to achieve this. The legality of data processing processes already performed remains unaffected by such revocation.
5. Plug-ins and tools
YouTube with extended data protection
This website integrates videos from YouTube. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To guarantee data protection on this website, we use YouTube only together with the DoubleClick solution. A plug-in prevents data being transferred to YouTube the first time the page is visited.
A direct connection to the provider’s server is only created when the “Consent to loading of YouTube content” button is clicked (consent). Clicking the button represents consent as defined by point a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.
We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they view the video. However, disclosure of data to YouTube partners is not bindingly ruled out by extended data protection mode. Regardless of whether you view a video, YouTube creates a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.
A connection to the YouTube servers is created as soon as you start a YouTube video on this website. In this process, which of our pages you have visited is communicated to the YouTube server. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to directly assign your browsing behaviour to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
In addition, YouTube can store various cookies on your device after a video is started. With the aid of these cookies, YouTube is able to receive information about visitors to this website. This information is used for purposes including recording video statistics, improving user-friendliness, and preventing attempted fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
After a YouTube video is started, additional data processing processes over which we do not have any influence may be triggered.
YouTube is used in the interest of corresponding representation of our online offerings. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of point f) of Article 6 (1) GDPR. If corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of point a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.
