The contents of our pages were created with the utmost care. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages under the general laws according to § 7 para.1 TMG. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, we are not obligated as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under the general laws remain unaffected. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the point in time at which a concrete infringement of the law becomes known. If we become aware of such infringements, we will remove this content immediately.

 

Liability for links

 

Our offer contains links to external websites of third parties, on whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately.

 

Copyright

 

The content and works created by the site operators on these pages are subject to German copyright law. Duplication, processing, distribution, or any form of commercialization of such material beyond the scope of the copyright law shall require the prior written consent of its respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the content on this site was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are respected. In particular, third-party content is identified as such.

Insofar as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

 

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

 

The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Data protection

In accordance with the legal requirements of data protection law (in particular in accordance with BDSG n.F. and the European Data Protection Regulation 'DS-GVO'), we inform you below about the nature, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data by our company. This privacy policy also applies to our websites and social media profiles. Regarding the definition of terms such as "personal data" or "processing", we refer to Art. 4 DS-GVO.

Types of data, purposes of processing and categories of data subjects

 

In the following, we inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data.

 

1. types of data we process

 

2. purposes of the processing according to Art. 13 (1) c) DS-GVO

Optimize website technically and economically, Provide easy access to the website, Fulfill contractual obligations, Contact third parties in case of legal complaint, Make website user-friendly, Marketing / sales / advertising, Handle contact requests, Provide websites with functions and content, 

 

3. categories of data subjects according to Art. 13(1)(e) GDPR

Visitors/users of the website, interested parties,

The data subjects are collectively referred to as "Users".

 

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

 

Below we inform you about the legal basis for the processing of personal data:

 

If we have obtained your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO is the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are carried out upon your request, then Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO is the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. legal retention obligations), the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO.

If the processing is necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. d) DS-GVO.

If the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not override this, then Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.

 

Disclosure of personal data to third parties and processors

 

As a matter of principle, we do not pass on any data to third parties without your consent. Should this nevertheless be the case, then the disclosure will be made on the basis of the previously mentioned legal grounds, e.g. in the case of the disclosure of data to online payment providers for the fulfillment of the contract or due to a court order or because of a legal obligation to hand over the data for the purpose of criminal prosecution, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.

We also use processors (external service providers, e.g. for web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data is passed on to the processors as part of a contract processing agreement, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. In doing so, we carefully select our processors, regularly monitor them and have been granted a right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures and comply with the data protection regulations according to BDSG n.F. and DS-GVO.

 

 

Data transfer to third countries

 

The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data is therefore predominantly processed by companies to which DS-GVO applies. If, however, processing is carried out by services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, these must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DS-GVO. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination by the EU Commission of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard contractual clauses". In the case of U.S. companies, submission to the so-called "Privacy Shield", the data protection agreement between the EU and the U.S., fulfills these requirements.

 

 

Deletion of data and storage period

 

Unless expressly stated in this privacy policy, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, unless its further storage is required for evidence purposes or is contrary to statutory retention obligations. This includes, for example, retention obligations under commercial law for business letters in accordance with Section 257 (1) of the German Commercial Code (HGB) (6 years) and retention obligations under tax law for documents in accordance with Section 147 (1) of the German Fiscal Code (AO) (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless the storage is still necessary for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

 

 

Existence of automated decision making

 

We do not use automated decision making or profiling.

- Cookies from third-party providers (third-party cookies): According to your preferences, you can configure your browser settings and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out at this point that you may then not be able to use all the functions of this website.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. lit. b) DS-GVO if the cookies are set to initiate a contract, e.g. for orders, and otherwise we have a legitimate interest in the effective functionality of the website, so that in that case Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
