The following Data protection declaration strictly implements the requirements of the DSGVO and other laws on data protection and gives you an overview of the processing of your personal data and your rights under the data protection provisions (data protection law), namely those of the aforementioned DSGVO.

II. Rights of users of data subjects
With regard to the processing of data described in more detail below, users and interested parties have the following rights, namely
confirmation as to whether data relating to them will be processed, access to the data processed, further information on the data processing and copies of the data (see also Article 15 DSGVO);
the rectification or completion of inaccurate or incomplete data (see also Article 16 DSGVO);
to the immediate deletion of the data concerning them (cf. also Article 17 DSGVO) or, alternatively, if further processing is required pursuant to Article 17 (3) DSGVO, to the restriction of processing pursuant to Article 18 DSGVO;
to receive the data relating to them and provided by them and to transfer these data to other providers/responsibles (cf. also Article 20 DSBER);
upon complaint to the supervisory authority if they are of the opinion that the data relating to them are being processed by the provider in breach of data protection provisions (see also Article 77 DSGVO).
In addition, the provider is obliged to inform all recipients to whom data has been disclosed by the provider of any rectification or deletion of data or of any restriction on processing that is imposed pursuant to Articles 16, 17 (1) and 18 DSGVO. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the User shall have the right to obtain information about such recipients.
Users and data subjects also have the right under Article 21 DSGVO to object to the future processing of data concerning them, provided that the data are processed by the provider in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. In particular, opposition to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing is admissible.
III. Information on data processing
Your data processed when using our website will be deleted and blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data is not opposed by any statutory storage obligations and no other information on individual processing methods is subsequently provided.
a) Session cookies
We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored on your terminal device by the Internet browser you use. These cookies are used to process certain information from you to an individual extent, such as your browser or location data or your IP address.
This processing makes our Internet presence more user-friendly, more effective and safer, since the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our Internet presence in different languages.
The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 lit. b) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies are used to process data for contract initiation or contract execution. If the processing does not serve the contract initiation or contract execution, our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Article 6 lit. f) DSGVO. This data is deleted when you close your Internet browser.
b) Third party cookies
If necessary, cookies from partner companies with whom we cooperate for the purpose of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our Internet presence may also be used with our Internet presence.
Please refer to the following information for details, in particular on the purposes and legal basis for processing such third-party cookies.
c) Possibility of disposal
You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by setting your Internet browser. You can also delete cookies that have already been saved at any time. The steps and measures required for this depend on the specific Internet browser you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support.
In the case of so-called flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash Player you are actually using. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash Player or contact the manufacturer or its user support.
Should you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may, however, mean that not all functions of our website are fully usable.
The data transmitted by you to make use of our services are processed by us for the purpose of contract processing and are necessary in this respect. Contract conclusion and contract processing are not possible without the provision of your data. Legal basis for the processing is article 6 Abs. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. Taking into account legal retention periods, for example from commercial and tax law, we delete this data after complete contract processing.
Contact requests / Contact possibility
If you contact us via contact form or email, the data provided by you will be used. This data is required for processing and answering your enquiry. Without their provision we cannot answer your inquiry or can answer it only to a limited extent. The legal basis for this agreement is Article 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.
Your data will be deleted if your inquiry or request has been conclusively answered and there are no legal obligations to retain data to prevent deletion, such as in the case of any subsequent contract processing.
