Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority

As a data subject, you have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority in the event of a data protection violation. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company's registered office is located. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details: 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 automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. The data will be provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, their recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, restriction of processing (blocking) or deletion of this data. In this regard, and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time via the contact options listed in the imprint.

Analysis tools and third-party tools

When visiting our website, your surfing behavior may be statistically analyzed. This is done primarily with cookies and with so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behavior is usually anonymous; the surfing behavior cannot be traced back to you. We process this data on the basis of your consent given in the cookie banner in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO or § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. You have the option to revoke this consent at any time. Detailed information on this can be found in the following privacy policy.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" address line of your browser and the lock symbol in the browser line.

Server log files

In server log files, the provider of the website automatically collects and stores information that 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

There is no merging of this data with other data sources. The data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

YouTube

For integration and display of video content, our website uses plugins from YouTube. The provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When a page with an integrated YouTube plugin is called up, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. YouTube thereby learns which of our pages you have accessed. YouTube can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile if you are logged into your YouTube account. By logging out beforehand, you have the option to prevent this. YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. The legal basis for the processing is consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO or § 25 Para. 1 TTDSG. You have the option to revoke this consent at any time by adjusting your preferences in our cookie settings. Details on the handling of user data can be found in YouTube's privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Objection to advertising e-mails

We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been 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 e-mails.

Contact form
If you send us inquiries via contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO).

Vimeo
Various videos from the provider Vimeo are linked on our website. Vimeo is a service of Vimeo LLC, 555 W 18th St New York City, NY 10011-2822. The Vimeo videos are integrated with the extended data protection mode. This prevents cookies from being set when the web pages with the embedded videos are loaded.

If you click on the video and let it run, personal data will be transmitted to the Vimeo service. The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO or § 25 para. 1 TTDSG.

We cannot provide any further information ourselves on the further processing of your data by Vimeo. Therefore, you can find this directly at Vimeo at: https://vimeo.com/privacy

Google Maps
This website uses the Google Maps API to display geographical information. When using Google Maps, Google (Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043) also collects, processes and uses data about the use of the Maps functions by visitors to the web pages. Google Maps provides an interactive map with which you can view addresses shown by us as well as use the map function. When you interact with Google Maps, it establishes a connection to Google and transmits information. If you are logged into your Google account when you interact, Google can link this data directly to your account. We make Google Maps available to you exclusively via a double-click process. Before you can view the interactive map, you must therefore confirm once again that you agree to the associated transmission. Only after your consent does the website establish contact with Google Maps. The legal basis for our processing is consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a DS-GVO or § 25 (1) TTDSG. You have the option to revoke this consent at any time by adjusting your preferences in our cookie settings. In the course of use, data may be transmitted to a server of the company Google LLC in the USA and stored there. In the event that personal data is transmitted to Google LLC. based in the USA, standard contractual clauses have been agreed with Google LLC. Standard Contractual Clauses according to Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c DS-GVO have been concluded or consents according to Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO have been obtained. We will provide you with a copy of the concluded standard contractual clauses upon request.

IP anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

Demographic characteristics with Google Analytics
Our website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. This is possible via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the item "Objection to data collection".

Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one end device (e.g. cell phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC). If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history with your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on every end device on which you log in with your Google account. To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad targeting. You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by disabling personalized advertising in your Google account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/anonymous
The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) a DS-GVO or § 25 (1) TTDSG. You have the option to revoke this consent at any time by adjusting your preferences in our cookie settings. In the course of use, data may be transmitted to a server of the company Google LLC in the USA and stored there. In the event that personal data is transmitted to Google LLC. based in the USA, standard contractual clauses have been agreed with Google LLC. Standard Contractual Clauses according to Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c DS-GVO have been concluded or consents according to Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO have been obtained. We will provide you with a copy of the concluded standard contractual clauses upon request.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). Within the framework of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked across AdWords customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO or § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. You have the option to revoke this consent at any time by adjusting your preferences in our cookie settings. In the course of use, data may be transmitted to a server of the company Google LLC in the USA and stored there. In the event that personal data is transmitted to Google LLC. based in the USA, standard contractual clauses have been agreed with Google LLC. Standard Contractual Clauses according to Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c DS-GVO have been concluded or consents according to Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO have been obtained. We will provide you with a copy of the concluded standard contractual clauses upon request.

More information on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in Google's privacy policy:
https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and agree to receive the newsletter.
