3. General Data protection declaration

 

By using the website you declare that you are in agreement with the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following description. Our website can in principle be visited without registering. On your visit data such as the pages called up or the names of the file downloaded, date and time are saved on the server for statistical purposes, without this data referring to you in person. Personal data, in particular names, addresses or e-mail addresses are collected on a voluntary basis. The data will not be transmitted to a third party without your consent.

Handling of personal data

 

Personal data is information, with whose assistance a person can be identified, in other words details, which can be traced back to a person. They include the name, e-mail address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites have been viewed by someone are considered to be personal data.

Personal data will be collected, used and passed on only if this is permitted by law or the user has consented to data collection.

 

Area of validity

This data protection declaration provides clarification for the user about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider.

You can find the legal basis for data protection in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

 

Ways of making contact

A contact form is available on the website, which can be used to make contact electronically. Alternatively it is possible to make contact via the e-mail address provided. If you contact us via one of these channels, then the personal data provided will be saved automatically. It will be saved solely for purpose of processing or making contact with the data subject. The data will not be passed on to a third party.

The data entered by you on the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, withdraw your consent to its storage or the purpose for storing the data lapses (e.g. after your enquiry has finished being processed). Compulsory statutory provisions – in particular periods of retention – remain unaffected.

Data protection declaration for Google Analytics

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files, which are stored on your computer and permit an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a server of Google in the USA and saved there.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is abbreviated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and abbreviated there. On the instructions of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to assess your use of the website, compile reports on website activities and provide additional services associated with the use of the website and the Internet with regard to the website operator. The IP address transmitted as part of Google Analytics from your browser will not be merged with other data of Google.

Browser plug-in

You can prevent the cookies being saved by the corresponding settings on your browser software; however we would like to point out to you that in this case it is possible that not all the functions of this website will be able to be used in full. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Withdrawal of consent to data collection

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.

You can find more information about the handling of user data at Google Analytics in the Data protection declaration of Google: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Commissioned data processing

We have concluded a contract for commissioned data processing with Google and fully implement the stringent requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

We process and save the personal data of the data subject only for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purpose of storage. Storage can occur beyond this insofar as this was envisaged by the European or national legislator in decrees, laws or other regulations under Union law, to which the body responsible for processing is subject.

As soon as the purpose of storage lapses or the period of storage prescribed by one of the above-mentioned provisions expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted.

Duration of storage of personal data

Personal data will be stored for the duration of the relevant statutory period of retention. After the expiry of the period, there will be a routine deletion of the data, insofar as there is no requirement for a contract initiation or performance of a contract.

Legal basis of processing

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data, which are required to perform a contract, whose contracting party is the data subject, Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to the processing procedures, which are necessary to implement pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to satisfy a legal obligation, to which our company is subject, Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is required to maintain a justified interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interest mentioned first, then Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. The justified interest of our company is to carry out our business activity.

Rights of the data subject

If personal data about you is processed, you are the data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights regarding the controller:

Right to obtain information

You can request confirmation from the controller whether personal data, which concerns you, is being processed by us.

If such processing is taking place, you can request the following information from the controller:

  1. the purposes for which the personal data are being processed;
  2. the categories of personal data, which are being processed;
  3. the recipients or the categories of recipients, to whom the personal data about you was disclosed or will still be disclosed;
  4. the planned duration of storage of the personal data concerning you or, if specific details about this are not possible, criteria for the stipulation of the duration of storage;
  5. the existence of a right to correction or deletion of the personal data concerning you, a right of limitation of processing by the controller or a right of objection against this processing;
  6. the existence of right of objection to a supervisory authority;
  7. all the available information about the origin of the data, if the personal data are not collected at the data subject;

You have the right to request information about whether the personal data concerning you is being transmitted to a third country or to an international organisation. In this connection you can request notification about the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transmission.

Right to correction

You have the right to correction and/or completion with regard to the controller, insofar as the processed personal data, which concerns you, are incorrect or incomplete. The controller must make the correction immediately.

Right to limitation of processing

You can request the limitation of the processing of the personal data concerning you under the following conditions:

  1. If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period, which makes it possible for the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  2. The processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion of the personal data and instead request the limitation of the use of the personal data;
  3. The controller no longer requires the personal data for the purpose of processing, but you require the latter for the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims, or
  4. If you have submitted an objection to processing in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet certain whether the justified reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data about you was limited, this data – apart from your storage – can be processed only with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural person or legal entity or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the limitation of processing was restricted in accordance with the above-mentioned conditions, you will be notified by the controller before the limitation is cancelled.

Right to deletion

You can ask the controller to immediately delete the personal data about you and the controller is obliged to delete this data immediately, insofar as one of the following reasons applies:

  1. The personal data about you is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  2. You withdraw your consent on which processing was based in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a or Art. 9 Para. 2 letter a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing.
  3. You object in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR to processing and there are no higher ranking justified reasons for processing, or you submit an objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR to processing.
  4. The personal data about you were processed unlawfully.
  5. The deletion of the personal data about you is required to satisfy a legal obligation in accordance with Union law or the law of Member States, to which the controller is subject.

The right to deletion does not exist, insofar as processing is required

  1. to exercise the right to free expression and information;
  2. to satisfy a legal obligation, which requires processing in accordance with the law of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject, or to assume a task in the public interest or takes place in the exercising of public authority, which was assigned to the controller;
  3. For reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 letter h and i as well as Art. 9 Para. 3 GDPR;
  4. for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 Para. 1 GDPR, insofar as the right mentioned in Para. 1 is likely to make the realisation of the objectives of this processing impossible or seriously adversely affect the latter, or
  5. to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to information

If you have asserted the right to correction, deletion or limitation of processing with regard to the controller, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the relevant personal data was disclosed of this correction or deletion of data or limitation of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or is associated with a disproportionate amount of time or expense.

You have the right with regard to the controller to be informed of these recipients.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data about you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, well-established and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without any obstacles by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, insofar as

  1. processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9 Para. 2 letter a GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b GDPR and
  2. processing will take place by means of automated procedures.

By exercising this right you also have the right to effect that personal data about you are transmitted directly by a controller to another controller, insofar as this is feasible from a technical perspective. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be adversely affected by this.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data, which is required to assume a task that is in the public interest or takes place in exercising public authority, which was transferred to the controller.

Right to object

You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data about you for reasons arising from your particular situation, which are based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter e or f GDPR.

The controller will no longer process the personal data about you unless he can provide evidence of compulsory grounds worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

 

Right to withdraw the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. By withdrawing your consent, the lawfulness of the processing undertaken up to the withdrawal on the basis of the consent will not be affected.

Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Regardless of any other legal remedy under administrative law or through the courts, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you are domiciled, of your place of work or the location of the suspected breach, if you are of the opinion that the processing of the personal data about you breaches the GDPR.

The responsible supervisory authority for matters under data protection law is the Federal State data protection officer of the Federal State, in which our company has its registered office:
