purposes of data processing by the responsible body and third parties
- you have given your express consent to do so,
- processing is required for the execution of a contract with you,
- processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation,
processing is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated herein or as provided for by the various storage periods provided for by the legislator. After the expiry of the respective purpose or expiry of these deadlines, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as .B IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make it easier for you to navigate and enable the correct display of our websites.
In no case will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or a link with personal data will be established without your consent.
Provision of paid services
In order to provide paid services, we request additional data, such as.B. payment details, in order to be able to execute your order. We store this data in our systems until the legal retention periods have expired.
Based on your explicit consent, we regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail to your specified e-mail address.
To receive the newsletter, the provision of your e-mail address is sufficient. When you register to subscribe to our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by e-mail of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).
For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. To verify that an application is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the "double opt-in" procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the requested reply. No further data will be collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for sending newsletters at any time. In each newsletter you will find a corresponding link. In addition, you can also unsubscribe directly from this website at any time or inform us of your corresponding request via the contact option indicated at the end of this data protection notice.
If you contact us via e-mail or contact form for any questions, please give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting us. This requires a valid e-mail address. This is used to assign the request and then respond to it. Specifying additional data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as for possible follow-up questions. After completing the request you have made, personal data will be deleted automatically.
Using Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, comcompile 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 within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
The purposes of data processing are the evaluation of the use of the website and the compilation of reports on activities on the website. On the basis of the use of the website and the Internet, further related services will then be provided. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to the full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: Browser Add On for disabling Google Analytics.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on this link. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This prevents the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
Using Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to display our content correctly and graphically across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as .B. Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google web fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support google web fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible – but at present it is also unclear whether and possibly for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

Detailed instructions for managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.
Embedded YouTube videos
On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, you connect to Youtube servers. Youtube will be informed which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your browsing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.
Anyone who has deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to expect such cookies when watching Youtube videos. Youtube also collects non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. The function is used to present interest-based advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called "cookie" is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she accesses websites belonging to Google's advertising network. On these pages, the visitor can be presented with advertisements relating to content that the visitor has previously viewed on websites that use Google's remarketing function.
