Responsible authority is the natural or legal person who, alone or in concert with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke an existing consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

In case of violations of data protection laws, the person concerned has the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of the data protection officers as well as their contact data can be obtained from the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, handed over to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another person in charge, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
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 the website’s operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. An encrypted connection can be recognized when the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and a lock icon appears in your browser’s address bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

For further information on personal data you can contact us at any time through the address given in the site notice.
Objection to advertising mails
The use of contact information published under the imprint obligation for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby objected. The operators of the websites explicitly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example through spam e-mails.
3. DATA COLLECTION ON OUR WEBSITE
Server log files
The provider of the websites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us. This includes:
- browser type and browser version
- operating system
- referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- time of the server request
- IP address
A combination of this data with other data sources is not made. Basis for the data processing is art. 6 par. 1 lit. b GDPR which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.
When sending us inquiries through the contact form, the details entered into the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass this data on without your consent. The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations that have taken place until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you request us to delete, revoke your consent to the storage, or until the purpose for the data storage has been omitted (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
Comment function on this website
For using the comment function on this website, in addition to your comment, information pertaining to the creation of the comment, your e-mail address, and, if you do not post anonymously, your chosen username will be stored.
Storage of the IP address
Our comment function stores the IP addresses of the users who write comments. Since we do not check comments on our site before activation, we need this information in order to be able to act against the author in case of infringements such as insults or propaganda.
Storage duration of the comments
The comments and related data (e.g. IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments must be deleted for legal reasons (e.g. offensive comments). The IP address will be automatically deleted after 60 days.
The comments are stored on the basis of your consent (art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.
Processing data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process, and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content, or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 lit. b GDPR which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process, and use personal data on the utilization of our websites (usage data) insofar as this is necessary in order to enable or bill the user for the use of the service. The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Data transfer at the conclusion of the contract for services and digital content
We transfer personal data to third parties only if this is necessary in terms of the processing of the contract, for example to the bank commissioned to handle the payment processing. A further transfer of the data does not take place unless you have explicitly consented to the transfer. A transfer of your data to third parties without explicit consent, such as for advertising purposes, does not take place. The basis for data processing is art. 6 par. 1 lit. b GDPR which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.
4. SOCIAL MEDIA
Share content via plugins (Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co.)
The content on our sites can be shared in social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ in compliance with data privacy. For this, the site uses the so-called Shariff solution. This procedure establishes direct contact between the networks and users only when the user actively clicks on one of these buttons. An automatic transfer of user data to the operators of these platforms is not carried out by this tool. If the user is logged in to one of the social networks, using the social buttons of Facebook, Google + 1, Twitter & co. will prompt an information window in which the user can confirm the text before submitting. Our users can share content on this page in a data privacy-compliant manner on social networks without having complete surf profiles created by the networks’ operators.

5. ANALYSIS TOOLS AND ADVERTISING
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States of America. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the U.S. and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted through your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies in a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that doing so may result in not being able to use all of the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. In addition, you may prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website: deactivate Google Analytics.
Order data processing
We have entered into a contract on order data processing with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be prepared that contain statements on age, gender, and interests of the site’s visitors. This data stems from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You may disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the section "Opposition to Data Collection".

Cookies and reports on access numbers
Our website and our mobile website use the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM, see “Cookies and reports on access numbers”) of the INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de) for the determination of statistical parameters for determining the copy probability of texts. Anonymous measurement values are collected. The measurement of access numbers alternatively uses a session cookie or a signature, created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser, to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are processed only in an anonymous form. The procedure was developed in compliance with data protection. The only objective of the procedure is to determine the copy probability of individual texts. At no time individual users are identified. Your identity remains protected at all times. You will not receive advertising through the system.
