Data protection according to Art. 13 DS-GVO

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our services. We attach the utmost importance to the protection of your privacy as a user of our website and strictly adhere to the provisions of data protection law when collecting, processing and using data. This applies in particular to the processing of your personal data.

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as on our pages
personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

No personal data is stored, only an individual pseudonym. This information is used, for example, to recognise you during navigation on our pages and to make navigation easier for you.

You can set your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. Alternatively, you can also view this website without cookies.

YouTube

Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

For further information on the handling of user data, please refer to YouTube’s privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Links to other websites

Our website contains links to other websites. We have no influence on whether their operators comply with data protection regulations. Despite careful control of the contents, we do not assume any liability for the contents of the external links. The operators of the linked pages are solely responsible for their content.

SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Duration of storage

The personal data that you have provided to us will be automatically deleted if the purposes of the processing no longer apply. In detail, the following storage periods apply:

Category of the stored data Deletion period

Technical data and protocols to ensure the operation of the website

6 months

Web tracking data

Already at the time of web tracking, your IP address is anonymised by deleting the last octet. Therefore, no personal data is processed in the further course of the analysis.

Content that you send to us via the contact form

The storage periods for this content depend on the type of information transmitted and the statutory retention periods applicable to it in each case.

Data subjects' rights

You have the right to information about the personal data stored about you at any time. In accordance with Articles 16 to 20 DS-GVO, you also have the right to correct incorrect data, the right to delete your personal data, the right to restrict the processing of your personal data and the right to data portability.

Right to withdraw consent

You have the right to revoke any consent given at any time. The revocation shall apply with immediate effect for the future. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation shall not be affected by the revocation.

Right to complain

If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

Provision of your personal data

Personal data is information about your identity. This includes, for example, information such as name, address, telephone number or also the e-mail address. It is not necessary for you to disclose personal data in order to use this website. In certain cases, however, we need your name and address and other details so that we can provide the requested services.

This applies, for example, to the use of our contact form, the sending of information, the answering of individual questions or the use of our form for online applications. Where this is required, we will point this out to you accordingly. In addition, we only store and process data that you provide voluntarily or automatically. If you make use of advisory services, as a rule only such data is collected as is required for the provision of the services. Insofar as we ask you for further data, this is voluntary information. The personal data you provide will be processed exclusively for the purposes communicated and explained to you.

Amendment of the data protection provisions

We reserve the right to change the security and data protection measures at any time, in particular insofar as this becomes necessary due to technical developments. In these cases, we will also adapt this information on data protection accordingly. Please therefore note the current version of this data protection declaration.
