The statutory basis for data protection is, in particular, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The legal basis for the processing of the IP address is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The purposes of data processing listed above constitute our legitimate interest. If data is used for purposes of preparing a contract, the legal basis for the data processing is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.

For the purposes of demand-driven design and ongoing optimization of our websites, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes set out above. In this context, pseudonymized user profiles are created and cookies are used. The cookies create the following information about your use of this website:
This information will be used to evaluate the use of our website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide services associated with the use of the website and the use of the Internet for purposes of market research and demand-driven design of these websites. IP addresses are anonymized to ensure that identification is not possible (known as IP masking).
You can prevent cookies being installed by adjusting the settings of your browser software accordingly; however, please note that you may then not be able to make use of the full scope of functions available on this website. You can also prevent collection and processing of the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google by downloading and installing this browser add-on. As an alternative to the browser add-on, in particular when using browsers on mobile devices, you may prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by clicking on this Link. This creates an opt-out cookie to prevent any future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie only applies in this browser and only for our website, and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to reset the opt-out cookie. Further information about data protection with regard to Google Analytics is available on the Google Analytics website.
The information created in the cookie is transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. To the best of our knowledge, your IP address will never be combined with other data held by Google. Where appropriate, this information may be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of the data controller.
After your IP address has been anonymized, this can no longer be used to identify you. The data prepared for statistical purposes will be deleted in Google Analytics after 24 months. The reports compiled based on Google Analytics do no longer contain any reference to individuals.
We treat all personal data that we receive from you by e-mail confidentially. We use your data solely for processing your request. The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Both our and your (legitimate) interest in processing is served by responding to your request.
Recipients/ categories of recipients:
As a rule, we do not transfer the data to third parties. In exceptional cases, we will have a processor process the data on our behalf. Such processors are carefully selected, audited by us and bound by contract pursuant to Article 28 GDPR.
We delete or anonymize all personal data we receive from you when you make inquiries by e-mail no later than 90 days after the final response is sent.
Except for the processing activities set out in clause 3.2, we will not pass your personal data on to recipients located outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. The processing activities listed in clause 3.2 involve a data transfer to servers of Google LLC. Some of these servers are located in the U.S. The European Commission has held in its Decision of July 12, 2016 that under provisions of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield there is an adequate level of data protection in the U.S. (known as an "adequacy decision" in accordance with Article 45 GDPR). The service provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, and the recipients specified in clause 5 are certified in accordance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.
We have embedded YouTube videos on our website, which are stored at http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. All videos are embedded with "privacy-enhanced mode" enabled, which means that no data about you as the user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Data is only transferred if you play the videos. We do not have any control over this transfer of data.
If personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organization, you have the right to be notified about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR related to the transfer.
You have the right to request from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
Where we have made the personal data public and are obliged to erase it, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, we will take reasonable steps to inform any third parties processing your personal data of the fact that you have requested the erasure by such third parties of any links to, or copies or replications of, such personal data.
You 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 you have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from us, where:
In exercising your right to data portability, you have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from us to another controller, where technically feasible.
Provided the requirements set out in Art. 21(1) GDPR are met, you may object to data processing on grounds relating to your particular situation.
The aforementioned general right to object applies to all the processing grounds set out in these data protection provisions, which are processed based on Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. In contrast to the specific right to object regarding data processing for promotional purposes (cf. above, in particular clause 3.6), we are only obliged to implement such a general objection pursuant to the GDPR if you cite grounds of overriding importance, e.g. a possible risk to life or health.
