Revoking your consent to data processing

Only with your explicit consent are certain data processing operations possible. The revocation of consent that you have previously granted is possible at any time. An informal message via email will suffice for revocation. The legality of the data processing that occurred up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the act of revocation.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have the data which we process automatically based on your consent or for the performance of a contract issued to you or a third party.

Right to information, correction, blocking and erasure

The applicable statutory regulations entitle you to the right at any time and free of charge to information on the personal data saved about you, its origin and recipients, the purpose of data processing and, where necessary, the right to the correction, blocking or erasure of this data.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to determine whether data entered on this website (e.g., information entered into a contact form) is being provided by a human user or by an automated program. To determine this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitors based on a variety of parameters. This analysis is triggered automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the site. For this analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates a variety of data (e.g., IP address, time the website visitor spent on the site or cursor movements initiated by the user). The data tracked during such analyses are forwarded to Google.

reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not alerted that an analysis is underway.

Data are stored and analyzed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the protection of the operator’s websites against abusive automated spying and against SPAM. If appropriate consent has been obtained, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar the consent includes the storage of cookies or the access to information in the user’s end device (e.g., device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your Web browser saves on your terminal. Cookies help us to make our content more user-friendly, effective and secure.

Some cookies are “session cookies”. Such cookies are deleted automatically once your browsing session has ended. By contrast, other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you yourself delete them. Such cookies help us to recognise you when you return to our website.

With a modern Web browser, you can monitor, limit or block the placing of cookies. Many Web browsers can be configured so that cookies are deleted automatically when the program closes. The deactivation of cookies may result in the functionality of our website being limited.

The placing of cookies that are necessary for performing electronic communication operations or providing certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping baskets) is based on Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. f of the GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in saving cookies for the technically fault-free and seamless provision of our services. If other cookies are placed (e.g. for analysis functions), these are dealt with separately in this privacy statement.
