Security and Protection of Your Personal Data
We consider it our primary responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data you provide and to protect it from unauthorized access. As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the regulations on data protection are observed both by us and by our external service providers.
The legislator requires that personal data are processed lawfully, fairly and in a way that is comprehensible to the data subject (‘lawfulness, fairness, transparency’). To ensure this, we will inform you about the individual legal definitions which are also used in this data protection declaration:
Personal data’ shall mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Processing’ means any operation or set of operations, whether or not by automatic means, performed upon personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or making otherwise available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Restriction of Processing
Restriction of processing’ means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling’ means any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular with a view to analysing or predicting aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or movement of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation’ means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data cannot be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Filing system’ means any structured collection of personal data accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or organised on a functional or geographical basis.
The ‘responsible person’ shall mean a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by European Union or national law, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with European Union or national law.
Order processor’ means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the responsible person.
Recipient’ means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union or national law, shall not be considered as recipients; the processing of such data by those authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection rules and in accordance with the purposes of the processing.
Third party’ means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body, other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process personal data.
The data subject’s ‘consent’ shall mean any freely given specific, informed and unequivocal expression of his or her wishes in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
The processing of personal data is lawful only if there is a legal basis for the processing. The legal basis for the processing may, according to Article 6(1) lit. a – f GDPR in particular:
The data subject has given his/her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him/her for one or more specified purposes;
the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;
the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject
processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person
the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk in accordance with the browser you are using and through which certain information is transmitted to the site that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer as a whole more user-friendly and effective.
This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:
– Transient cookies (see a.)
– Persistent cookies (see b.).
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called Session-ID, with which different requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and e.g. refusal to accept third party cookies or all cookies. So-called “Third Party Cookies” are cookies that are set by a third party and therefore not by the actual website on which you are currently located. Please note that by disabling cookies you may not be able to use all the features of this website.
The Flash cookies used are not recorded by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in . Furthermore we use HTML5 storage objects, which are stored on your device. These objects store the required data regardless of the browser you use and have no automatic expiration date. If you do not want Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on, e.g. B. “Better Privacy” for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash Killer cookie for Google Chrome. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storage objects by setting your browser to private mode. We also recommend that you regularly delete your cookies and browser history manually.
In addition to the purely informative use of our website, we offer various services which you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you will generally have to provide other personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.
In some cases we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked.
Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if we offer participation in promotions, competitions, contract conclusions or similar services together with partners. You will receive more detailed information on this when you enter your personal data or in the description of the offer below.
Insofar as our service providers or partners have their registered office in a state outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you of the consequences of this circumstance in the description of the offer.
With your consent you can subscribe to our newsletter, with which we inform you about our current interesting offers. The advertised goods and services are specified in the declaration of consent.
For the registration to our newsletter we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store your IP address and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.
Your e-mail address is the only mandatory information for the sending of the newsletter. The provision of further, separately marked data is voluntary and is used to address you personally.

For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which represent one-pixel image files stored on our website. For evaluation purposes, we link the data mentioned in § 3 and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. The data is collected pseudonymously, the IDs are not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by informing us via another contact channel. The information is stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After a logout we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.
Our offer is fundamentally directed at adults. Persons under 18 years of age should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians.
Revocation of Consent

the processing purposes;
the categories of personal data processed;
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular to recipients in third countries or international organisations;

We provide a copy of the personal data that is the subject of the processing. We may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs for any additional copies you request. If the application is submitted electronically, the information shall be provided in a standard electronic format unless otherwise specified by the applicant. The right to receive a copy under paragraph 3 shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
Right of Rectification
You have the right to ask us to correct any incorrect personal data concerning you without delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.
Right of Cancellation (“right to be forgotten”)
You have the right to request the controller to delete personal data relating to you immediately and we are obliged to delete personal data immediately if any of the following reasons apply:
The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the GPDR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GPDR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) GPDR.
The personal data was processed unlawfully.
The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8(1) of the GDPR.
Where the responsible person has made the personal data public and is obliged to delete them in accordance with paragraph 1, the responsible person shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that a data subject has requested them to delete all links to those personal data or copies or replications thereof.
The right of cancellation (“right to be forgotten”) does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary:
– on the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
– to comply with a legal obligation imposed on the controller under Union or national law to which the controller is subject or to carry out a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
– for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR
– for archiving, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 paragraph 1 of the GDPR, in so far as the law referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
– to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to Restrict Processing
You have the right to ask us to limit the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time which allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
the processing is unlawful and the data subject refuses the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data;
the responsible person no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims, or
the data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 paragraph 1 GDPR, as long as it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, such personal data, apart from being stored, shall be processed only with the consent of the data subject or for the purpose of pursuing, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
In order to exercise the right to limit processing, the data subject may at any time contact us at the contact details given above.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and you have the right to transfer such data to another responsible party without interference from the responsible party to whom the personal data has been provided, provided that:
the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a or Article 9 paragraph 2 letter a or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b GDPR and
the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
When exercising the right to transfer data in accordance with paragraph 1, you have the right to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one responsible person to another responsible person to the extent it is technically feasible. The exercise of the right of data transferability is without prejudice to the right of erasure (“right to be forgotten”). This right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the responsible person.
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 that is carried out on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letters e or f of the GDPR, including profiling based on these provisions. The responsible person shall no longer process the personal data unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing is carried out in order to pursue, exercise or defend legal claims.
Where personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is linked to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services, you may exercise your right of objection by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, without prejudice to Directive 2002/58/EC.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes, as referred to in Article 89(1), except where such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
You can exercise the right of objection at any time by contacting the person responsible for the matter.
Automated Decisions in Individual Cases Including Profiling You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect on you or which significantly affects you in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision:
is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the responsible person
is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and that legislation provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or
with the express consent of the data subject.
The responsible person shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of the responsible person, to put forward his point of view and to appeal against the decision.
The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the person in charge.
Right of Appeal to a Supervisory Authority
They shall also have, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their residence, place of employment or place of the alleged infringement, if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her is in breach of this Regulation.
Right to an Effective Judicial Remedy
Without prejudice to any available administrative or extrajudicial remedy, including the right to appeal to a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR, they shall have the right to an effective judicial remedy if they consider that their rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of the processing of their personal data contrary to this Regulation.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ( Google ). Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened 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 the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.
The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are further processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is therefore deleted immediately.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. With the statistics obtained, we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. Legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, data protection overview: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, and the data protection declaration: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out using a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under “My data”, “personal data”.
We currently use the following social media plug-ins: [Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram]. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the mark on the box by its initial letter or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned in § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook, the IP address is anonymised immediately after it has been collected, according to information provided by the respective providers in Germany. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.
We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also do not have any information about the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses this data for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider in order to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click on the activated button and link e.g. to the page, the plug-in provider will also save this information in your user account and publicly share it with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will help you avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.
Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers, as notified below. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
