Data protection declaration
With this data protection declaration we inform you how, to what extent and for what purposes we process personal data when using this website.
1. collection, processing and use of personal data on request
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. You are neither obliged to visit this website nor to provide any personal data. If you do not provide us with personal data, you may not be able to use individual functionalities of this website. Otherwise there will be no consequences for you. As far as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our site, this is done on a voluntary basis, except in the cases expressly described below. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. If the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time with the consequence that the processing of your personal data will become inadmissible for the future. However, this does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
2. data processing to enable the use of the website
When you visit our website, we collect the necessary data to enable you to use it. This includes your IP address and data about the beginning, end and subject of your use of the website as well as data for identification purposes, if applicable. This data is used to provide and design the service according to requirements. They are always deleted as soon as they are no longer required and there are no storage obligations. For the processing of pseudonymous user profiles for web analysis see section 5.
3. consent to cookies and web analysis
When you visit our website, a so-called “cookie banner” appears, with which we ask you for your consent to set cookies to optimise the website (see paragraph 4) and for web analysis (see paragraph 5). If you agree, we will proceed as described in more detail in the following two sections. There you will also find information on how you can revoke your consent at any time and prevent the setting of cookies or web analysis.
If you visit our website and give your consent (see section 3), it may be that information in the form of a cookie is stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are sent from a web server to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. This makes it possible to recognize you when you visit the website again. In this way we can guarantee a better functionality of the site and carry out e.g. web analyses (see paragraph 5). Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser and have the possibility to delete them from your hard disk at any time. We would like to point out to you that a use of our offers on the website without cookies may only be possible to a limited extent. However, you can also use your browser only to prevent certain cookies from being set (e.g. cookies from third parties), for example if you want to prevent web tracking. Please refer to your browser’s help function for more information.
5. transmission to third parties and in countries outside the EU
Your personal data will only be transmitted to third parties if there is a legal permit for this or you have given your prior consent. We will only disclose your data to government authorities within the framework of legal obligations or as a result of an official order or court decision. A transfer to recipients outside the EU only takes place if it is ensured that the recipient of the data guarantees an adequate level of data protection and that there are no other interests worthy of protection against the data transfer. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.
We delete your personal data as soon as they are no longer required for the purposes pursued with the collection and processing and insofar as there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary.
7. Your rights regarding personal data
The data protection law grants you a number of rights with regard to data concerning your person (so-called rights of data subjects). In general, these are the right to request information about your personal data stored by us, as well as the right to correct, delete or restrict the processing of these data and to object to the processing. Whether and to what extent these rights exist in individual cases and what conditions apply depends on the law (until 25 May 2018 from the Federal Data Protection Act, from 25 May 2018 also from the EU Basic Data Protection Ordinance). The basic EU data protection regulation also grants you the right to data transferability. If you have given your consent to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this at any time with effect for the future. They also have a right of appeal to the competent data protection supervisory authority. However, if you have any questions or complaints about data protection on this website, we recommend that you first contact us directly (see Imprint).
8. no automated single decision
As far as this is not exceptionally necessary for the conclusion of a contract or permitted by law (as in the case of age verification) we do not use your personal data for automated individual decisions.
9. How can you contact us?
You will find our contact details as the responsible body in the imprint.
