Scope of application
In case of doubt of interpretation, the text of the German version shall apply.
The legal framework for the Data protection is governed by Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Ordinance/GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG)) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz (TMG)). In addition, we are subject to the recording and recording obligations of the Tax Code (Abgabenordnung (AO)) and other mandatory regulations; legal basis under data protection law for the processing of the data is Article 6 paragraph 1, letter b (necessary for performance of the contract) of the GDPR, as far as in individual cases no other legal basis is mentioned.
In the following we would like to inform you in detail about which data we collect, process and use for which purpose and how you can object to this data processing.

In addition, we or the web space provider use the information for statistical purposes. They help him and us with the optimization of the offer and the technology.
The web space provider gives us the IP address partially anonymized to the order; partial anonymization means he replaces the last three digits of the last block of four of an IPv4 address by a hash value of equal length. The same shall apply accordingly after any Changeover or use of IPv6 addresses. These us from the side the webspace provider automatically transmitted anonymous data can not be assigned to a specific person.

Personal data are stored and processed exclusively on servers in the European Union. We collect data sparingly and minimizing, where possible we store and process personal data with our own protected in-house servers.
Data processing is based on the statutory provisions of Article 6 paragraph 1, letter a (your consent) and / or f (our legitimate interest) of the GDPR. If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, then Article 6 paragraph 1, letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing (our legitimate interest).
In particular is the legal basis for the processing personal data:
- Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subjects for the processing of personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1, letter a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
- In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6, paragraph 1, letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to the processing procedures required to carry out pre-contractual measures.
- As far as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal Obligation to which our company is subject to, Article 6 paragraph 1, letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
- If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our Company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6 paragraph 1, letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
Any further use will only take place with the express consent of the customer. Specifically, data is collected and processed as follows.
Provision of chargeable services
We request additional data to enable us to provide services that are subject to a charge. This applies, for example, to payment details. In particular, the name, address, contact data including e-mail address and, in the case of payment, the payment data.
To ensure the security of your data during transmission, we work with encryption methods (such as SSL via HTTPS, data carrier encryption, access protection) that reflect the current state of the art.
Contact form and e-mail
If you contact us via an online form or by e-mail, we will store the information you provide in order to answer your request and clarify possible follow-up questions. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR if the user has given his or her consent, which is transmitted in the course of a transmission through a contact form or an e-mail. If the contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b GDPR. This data is used for pre-contractual and, if necessary, subsequent contractual fulfilment of obligations and the performance of the contract.
Integration of third-party services and content
Our offer sometimes includes, if necessary only in the future, contents, services and achievements of other offerers. These include for example maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. In order for this data to be accessed and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the ip address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) thus perceive the ip address of the respective user.
Although we endeavour to use only third party providers who only need the IP address to be able to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process is used for statistical purposes, among other things. If we are aware that the IP address is stored permanently, we will point this out to our users.
This website may use so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer from the server. They contain information about the browser, the IP address, the operating system and the Internet connection. This data will not be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

a. The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed in any other way.

e. for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- Right to information:
If you have exercised your right of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the data controller, the data controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. You have a right to be informed from the data controller about these recipients.
- Right to data portability:
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. Furthermore, you have the right to transmit this data to another person responsible without obstruction by the responsible person to whom the personal data was provided, if

b. the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the data controller.
- Right of objection:
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
Automated decision in individual cases including profiling: You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – which has legal effect against it or significantly impairs it in a similar manner. This shall not apply where the decision
a. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the responsible person,
b. is admissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which the responsible person is subject and where such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or
c. is taken with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9 paragraph 1 GDPR, unless Article 9 paragraph 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests. With regard to the cases mentioned in a. and c., the responsible person takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the responsible person, to state his own position and to contest the decision.
- Right of appeal to a supervisory authority:
Without prejudice to any otheradministrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you are staying, working or suspected of infringing, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
- Information, objection, rectification and erasure options:
You have the possibility at any time to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data with effect for the future and to have your personal data deleted or altered. If the data is required to fulfil the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, premature erasure of the data is only possible insofar as there are no contractual or statutory obligations in contradiction to erasure. Requests for information, rectification and erasure as well as the revocation or objection regarding the further use of the data of any consents given to us can be explained informally to our data protection officer (contact data: at the beginning of the data protection declaration).
