The security and protection of your personal data

We regard it as our primary duty to keep the personal data that you have provided confidential and to protect them against unauthorised access. For this reason, we apply the utmost care and latest security standards to ensure the maximum protection of your personal data.


Information on the collection of personal data

In the following, we provide information about how personal data are collected when using our website. Examples of personal data include names, addresses, e-mail addresses and user behaviour. 

If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, we save the data you provide to us (your e-mail address, if applicable your name, and your phone number) so that we can answer your questions. We erase the data collected in this context when it is no longer necessary to store them or if restrictions are imposed on processing as a result of statutory data storage obligations.


Collection of personal data when you visit our website

If you visit our website simply to find out information, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data your browser sends to our server. If you wish to view our website, we will collect the following data, which are necessary from a technical perspective to display our website to you and to ensure its stability and security (the legal basis for this is Art. 6, Para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR): IP address, date and time of request, time zone difference compared with Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, volume of data transmitted in each case, website from which the request originates, browser, operating system and user interface, language and version of browser software. 


Use of cookies
 

In addition to collecting the above data, cookies are also saved on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and associated with the browser you use. They provide certain information to the body which places the cookie on your hard drive (in this case our company). Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make websites more user-friendly and effective overall. 

This website uses the following types of cookies. Their scope and how they function is explained below: 

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Included in this type in particular are session cookies. They store something known as a session ID, which enables different requests from your browser to all be allocated to the same session. This means your computer is recognised again when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a defined time. This time can vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in your browser’s security settings at any time.

You can configure your browser settings in accordance with your preferences and e.g. reject the storage of third-party cookies or all cookies. Third-party cookies are cookies set by a third party, which means that they are not set by the actual website you are currently visiting. Please note that if you disable cookies you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.

Further functions and offerings on our website

As well as allowing you to use our website purely as a source of information, we also offer various services that you can take advantage of if they are of interest to you. For this, you usually need to provide further personal data that we use to provide the service concerned. The data processing principles stated above also apply here.

In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. We select and commission these service providers carefully. They are bound by our instructions and are regularly audited.

Furthermore, we may pass your personal data on to third parties if we team up with partners to offer you the chance to participate in campaigns, prize draws, conclusion of contracts, or similar services. You will receive further information about this when you enter your personal data or will find it at the bottom of the description of the offer.

If our service provider or partner is based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you about the consequences of this in the description of the offer.


Children

As a basic principle, our offering is aimed at adults. Persons below the age of 18 should not send us any personal data without the consent of their parents or legal guardians.


Rights of the data subject

Withdrawal of consent
Where personal data are processed on the basis of consent having been granted previously, you shall have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing consent does not affect the legality of the processing that was carried out with consent prior to its withdrawal.

Right to receive confirmation
You shall have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not we are processing personal data concerning you. You may request this confirmation at any time using the contact details provided here.

If personal data are being processed, you shall have the right to access this personal data and request the following information at any time:

  • the purposes of the processing;
  • the categories of personal data concerned;
  • the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations;
  • where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;

  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22 Paragraphs 1 and 4 GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

Where personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation, you shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR relating to the transfer. We shall provide a copy of the personal data undergoing processing. For any further copies that you request, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs. Where you make the request by electronic means, and unless requested otherwise, the information shall be provided in a commonly used electronic form. The right to obtain a copy shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

Right to rectification  
You shall have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)
You shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and we shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

  • The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1), or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
  • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR.
  • The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
  • The personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) GDPR.

Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged pursuant to paragraph 1 to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data. 

The right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:

  • for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
  • for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9(2) as well as Article 9(3) GDPR;
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) GDPR in so far as the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
  • for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.    


Right to restriction of processing
You shall have the right to have the processing of your personal data restricted by us where one of the following applies:

  • the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  • the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
  • the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • the data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the aforementioned preconditions, such personal data will, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the data subject’s consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

The data subject can contact us at any time using the contact details provided above to assert his/her right to have processing restricted.

Right to data portability
You shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:

  • the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) or point (a) of Article 9(2) or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR; and
  • the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising your right to data portability pursuant to paragraph 1, you shall have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from the controller to another controller, where technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability shall be without prejudice to the right of erasure (“right to be forgotten”). That right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Right to object
You shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. 

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

Where personal data are processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1), you shall, on grounds relating to your particular situation, have the right to object to processing of personal data concerning you, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

You may exercise your right to object at any time by contacting the relevant controller.

Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
You shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision:

  • is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller;
  • is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
  • is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

The data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision. 

The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the relevant controller.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes this Regulation.

Right to an effective judicial remedy
Without prejudice to any available administrative or non-judicial remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 GDPR, you shall have the right to an effective judicial remedy where you consider that your rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of the processing of your personal data in non-compliance with this Regulation.
