Pri­vacy Policy

An over­view of Data Pro­tec­tion

Gen­er­al

The fol­low­ing gives a simple over­view of what hap­pens to your per­son­al in­form­a­tion when you visit our web­site. Per­son­al in­form­a­tion is any data with which you could be per­son­ally iden­ti­fied. De­tailed in­form­a­tion on the sub­ject of data pro­tec­tion can be found in our pri­vacy policy found below.

Data col­lec­tion on our web­site

Who is re­spons­ible for the data col­lec­tion on this web­site?

The data col­lec­ted on this web­site are pro­cessed by the web­site op­er­at­or. The op­er­at­or's con­tact de­tails can be found in the web­site's re­quired legal no­tice.

How do we col­lect your data?

Some data are col­lec­ted when you provide it to us. This could, for ex­ample, be data you enter on a con­tact form.

Other data are col­lec­ted auto­mat­ic­ally by our IT sys­tems when you visit the web­site. These data are primar­ily tech­nic­al data such as the browser and op­er­at­ing sys­tem you are using or when you ac­cessed the page. These data are col­lec­ted auto­mat­ic­ally as soon as you enter our web­site.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is col­lec­ted to en­sure the prop­er func­tion­ing of the web­site. Other data can be used to ana­lyze how vis­it­ors use the site.

What rights do you have re­gard­ing your data?

You al­ways have the right to re­quest in­form­a­tion about your stored data, its ori­gin, its re­cip­i­ents, and the pur­pose of its col­lec­tion at no charge. You also have the right to re­quest that it be cor­rec­ted, blocked, or de­leted. You can con­tact us at any time using the ad­dress given in the legal no­tice if you have fur­ther ques­tions about the issue of pri­vacy and data pro­tec­tion. You may also, of course, file a com­plaint with the com­pet­ent reg­u­lat­ory au­thor­it­ies.

Ana­lyt­ics and third-party tools

When vis­it­ing our web­site, stat­ist­ic­al ana­lyses may be made of your surf­ing be­ha­vi­or. This hap­pens primar­ily using cook­ies and ana­lyt­ics. The ana­lys­is of your surf­ing be­ha­vi­or is usu­ally an­onym­ous, i.e. we will not be able to identi­fy you from this data. You can ob­ject to this ana­lys­is or pre­vent it by not using cer­tain tools. De­tailed in­form­a­tion can be found in the fol­low­ing pri­vacy policy.

You can ob­ject to this ana­lys­is. We will in­form you below about how to ex­er­cise your op­tions in this re­gard.

Gen­er­al In­form­a­tion and Man­dat­ory In­form­a­tion

Data pro­tec­tion

The op­er­at­ors of this web­site take the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al data very ser­i­ously. We treat your per­son­al data as con­fid­en­tial and in ac­cord­ance with the stat­utory data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions and this pri­vacy policy.

If you use this web­site, vari­ous pieces of per­son­al data will be col­lec­ted. Per­son­al in­form­a­tion is any data with which you could be per­son­ally iden­ti­fied. This pri­vacy policy ex­plains what in­form­a­tion we col­lect and what we use it for. It also ex­plains how and for what pur­pose this hap­pens.

Please note that data trans­mit­ted via the in­ter­net (e.g. via email com­mu­nic­a­tion) may be sub­ject to se­cur­ity breaches. Com­plete pro­tec­tion of your data from third-party ac­cess is not pos­sible.

Data Col­lec­tion on our Web­site

Cook­ies

Some of our web pages use cook­ies. Cook­ies do not harm your com­puter and do not con­tain any vir­uses. Cook­ies help make our web­site more user-friendly, ef­fi­cient, and se­cure. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored on your com­puter and saved by your browser.

Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called "ses­sion cook­ies." They are auto­mat­ic­ally de­leted after your visit. Other cook­ies re­main in your device's memory until you de­lete them. These cook­ies make it pos­sible to re­cog­nize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can con­fig­ure your browser to in­form you about the use of cook­ies so that you can de­cide on a case-by-case basis wheth­er to ac­cept or re­ject a cook­ie. Al­tern­at­ively, your browser can be con­figured to auto­mat­ic­ally ac­cept cook­ies under cer­tain con­di­tions or to al­ways re­ject them, or to auto­mat­ic­ally de­lete cook­ies when clos­ing your browser. Dis­abling cook­ies may limit the func­tion­al­ity of this web­site.

Cook­ies which are ne­ces­sary to allow elec­tron­ic com­mu­nic­a­tions or to provide cer­tain func­tions you wish to use (such as the shop­ping cart) are stored pur­su­ant to Art. 6 para­graph 1, let­ter f of DSGVO. The web­site op­er­at­or has a le­git­im­ate in­terest in the stor­age of cook­ies to en­sure an op­tim­ized ser­vice provided free of tech­nic­al er­rors. If other cook­ies (such as those used to ana­lyze your surf­ing be­ha­vi­or) are also stored, they will be treated sep­ar­ately in this pri­vacy policy.

Serv­er log files

The web­site pro­vider auto­mat­ic­ally col­lects and stores in­form­a­tion that your browser auto­mat­ic­ally trans­mits to us in "serv­er log files". These are:

  • Browser type and browser ver­sion
  • Oper­at­ing sys­tem used
  • Re­fer­rer URL
  • Host name of the ac­cess­ing com­puter
  • Time of the serv­er re­quest
  • IP ad­dress

These data will not be com­bined with data from other sources.

The basis for data pro­cessing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which al­lows the pro­cessing of data to ful­fill a con­tract or for meas­ures pre­lim­in­ary to a con­tract.

Contact form

Should you send us ques­tions via the con­tact form, we will col­lect the data entered on the form, in­clud­ing the con­tact de­tails you provide, to an­swer your ques­tion and any fol­low-up ques­tions. We do not share this in­form­a­tion without your per­mis­sion.

We will, there­fore, pro­cess any data you enter onto the con­tact form only with your con­sent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may re­voke your con­sent at any time. An in­form­al email mak­ing this re­quest is suf­fi­cient. The data pro­cessed be­fore we re­ceive your re­quest may still be leg­ally pro­cessed.

We will re­tain the data you provide on the con­tact form until you re­quest its de­le­tion, re­voke your con­sent for its stor­age, or the pur­pose for its stor­age no longer per­tains (e.g. after ful­filling your re­quest). Any man­dat­ory stat­utory pro­vi­sions, es­pe­cially those re­gard­ing man­dat­ory data re­ten­tion peri­ods, re­main un­af­fected by this pro­vi­sion.

Ana­lyt­ics and Ad­vert­ising

Google Ana­lyt­ics

This web­site uses Google Ana­lyt­ics, a web ana­lyt­ics ser­vice. It is op­er­ated by Google Inc., 1600 Am­phi­theatre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Ana­lyt­ics uses so-called "cook­ies". These are text files that are stored on your com­puter and that allow an ana­lys­is of the use of the web­site by you. 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.

Google Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The web­site op­er­at­or has a le­git­im­ate in­terest in ana­lyz­ing user be­ha­vi­or to op­tim­ize both its web­site and its ad­vert­ising.

Browser plu­gin:

You can pre­vent these cook­ies being stored by se­lect­ing the ap­pro­pri­ate set­tings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full func­tion­al­ity of this web­site. You can also pre­vent the data gen­er­ated by cook­ies about your use of the web­site (incl. your IP ad­dress) from being passed to Google, and the pro­cessing of these data by Google, by down­load­ing and in­stalling the browser plu­gin avail­able at the fol­low­ing link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/ga­op­tout?hl=en.

Ob­ject­ing to the col­lec­tion of data

You can pre­vent the col­lec­tion of your data by Google Ana­lyt­ics by click­ing on the fol­low­ing link. An opt-out cook­ie will be set to pre­vent your data from being col­lec­ted on fu­ture vis­its to this site: Dis­able Google Ana­lyt­ics.

For more in­form­a­tion about how Google Ana­lyt­ics handles user data, see Google's pri­vacy policy: https://sup­port.google.com/ana­lyt­ics/an­swer/6004245?hl=en.

News­let­ter data

If you would like to re­ceive our news­let­ter, we re­quire a valid email ad­dress as well as in­form­a­tion that al­lows us to veri­fy that you are the owner of the spe­cified email ad­dress and that you agree to re­ceive this news­let­ter. No ad­di­tion­al data is col­lec­ted or is only col­lec­ted on a vol­un­tary basis. We only use this data to send the re­ques­ted in­form­a­tion and do not pass it on to third parties.

We will, there­fore, pro­cess any data you enter onto the con­tact form only with your con­sent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can re­voke con­sent to the stor­age of your data and email ad­dress as well as their use for send­ing the news­let­ter at any time, e.g. through the "un­sub­scribe" link in the news­let­ter. The data pro­cessed be­fore we re­ceive your re­quest may still be leg­ally pro­cessed.

The data provided when re­gis­ter­ing for the news­let­ter will be used to dis­trib­ute the news­let­ter until you can­cel your sub­scrip­tion when said data will be de­leted. Data we have stored for other pur­poses (e.g. email ad­dresses for the mem­bers area) re­main un­af­fected.

Plu­gins and Tools

YouTube

Our web­site uses plu­gins from YouTube, which is op­er­ated by Google. The op­er­at­or of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you visit one of our pages fea­tur­ing a YouTube plu­gin, a con­nec­tion to the YouTube serv­ers is es­tab­lished. Here the YouTube serv­er is in­formed about which of our pages you have vis­ited.

If you're logged in to your YouTube ac­count, YouTube al­lows you to as­so­ci­ate your brows­ing be­ha­vi­or dir­ectly with your per­son­al pro­file. You can pre­vent this by log­ging out of your YouTube ac­count.

YouTube is used to help make our web­site ap­peal­ing. This con­sti­tutes a jus­ti­fied in­terest pur­su­ant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Fur­ther in­form­a­tion about hand­ling user data, can be found in the data pro­tec­tion de­clar­a­tion of YouTube under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/pri­vacy.

Google Web Fonts

For uni­form rep­res­ent­a­tion of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the re­quired web fonts into your browser cache to dis­play texts and fonts cor­rectly.

For this pur­pose your browser has to es­tab­lish a dir­ect con­nec­tion to Google serv­ers. Google thus be­comes aware that our web page was ac­cessed via your IP ad­dress. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the in­terest of a uni­form and at­tract­ive present­a­tion of our web­site. This con­sti­tutes a jus­ti­fied in­terest pur­su­ant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your browser does not sup­port web fonts, a stand­ard font is used by your com­puter.

Fur­ther in­form­a­tion about hand­ling user data, can be found at https://de­velopers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's pri­vacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/pri­vacy/.

Google Maps

This site uses the Google Maps map ser­vice via an API. It is op­er­ated by Google Inc., 1600 Am­phi­theatre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

To use Google Maps, it is ne­ces­sary to save your IP ad­dress. This in­form­a­tion is gen­er­ally trans­mit­ted to a Google serv­er in the USA and stored there. The pro­vider of this site has no in­flu­ence on this data trans­fer.

The use of Google Maps is in the in­terest of mak­ing our web­site ap­peal­ing and to fa­cil­it­ate the loc­a­tion of places spe­cified by us on the web­site. This con­sti­tutes a jus­ti­fied in­terest pur­su­ant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Fur­ther in­form­a­tion about hand­ling user data, can be found in the data pro­tec­tion de­clar­a­tion of Google at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/pri­vacy/.
