information about your data stored by us and its processing,
rectification of inaccurate personal data,
erasure of your data stored by us,
restriction of data processing, unless we are permitted to delete your data due to legal obligations,

Purposes of data processing by the controller and third parties
We process your personal data solely for the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

you have given your express consent,
processing is necessary to execute a contract concluded with you,
the processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation,
processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data.

Erasure 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 here or as provided for in the various storage periods prescribed by law. After cessation of the respective purpose or expiration of said deadlines, the corresponding data will be blocked or erased as a matter of routine and in accordance with statutory regulations.

Cookies
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 IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start up programs or to transmit viruses onto a computer. Based on the information contained in the cookies, we can make it easier for you to navigate and enable our website to be displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are often configured to accept cookies. You can, however, deactivate the usage of cookies, at any time by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how you can change these settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

Registration on our website
When registering to use our personalised services, some personal data is collected, such as name, address, contact and communication data such as telephone number and e-mail address. If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option to have the data provided at registration changed or erased at any time, if necessary. Of course, we will also provide you with information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time. We will be happy to rectify or erase them at your request, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary. Please use the contact information at the end of this Privacy Policy to contact us in this regard.

SSL encoding
To safeguard your data during transfer, we use a state-of-the-art encoding procedure (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Newsletter
On the basis of your explicit consent, we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail to your specified e-mail address.

To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. The data you provided when registering for our newsletter will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by e-mail of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).

For the registration to take effect, we need a valid e-mail address. In order to ensure registration has been completed by the actual owner of a given e-mail address, we use the ‘double opt-in’ process. For this purpose we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the requested answer. No further data is gathered. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

You may revoke your consent to your personal data being stored and to it being used to send the newsletter at any given time. A corresponding link is included in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe at any time directly on the website or notify us of your wish to unsubscribe using the contact details provided at the end of this document.

Contact form
If you contact us regarding any questions by e-mail or contact form, please give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting you. A valid e-mail address is required for this purpose. This is used to assign the request and then reply to it. The specification of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. After your request has been processed, your personal data will be automatically erased.

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. Due to IP anonymisation being activated on these websites, however, Google will first truncate your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Other related services will then be provided based on the use of the website and the Internet. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.

You can prevent installation of cookies by changing your browser settings; however, we would like to inform you that you may not be able to use all functions of this website completely if you disable cookies. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: Browser add-on to disable 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. An opt-out cookie is installed on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and for this browser in future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to display geographical information visually. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map functions by visitors. You can find more information about Google’s data processing in the Google Privacy Policy. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the Data Protection Centre.

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. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA is the operator of the corresponding plug-ins. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to Youtube servers is established. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to reckon with such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Further information on YouTube data protection can be found in the provider’s Privacy Policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Amendment of this Privacy Policy
We reserve the right to adapt this Privacy Policy at times to ensure that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services, such as the introduction of new services. The new Privacy Policy then applies to your renewed visit.
