2. General information and notes on obligations
The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and strictly in accordance with the legal data protection ordinances and this data protection declaration.
When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal data is defined as any information that can be used to identify you personally. The following data protection declaration explains which data is collected and for which purposes. It also explains how and for what purpose this occurs.
We wish to explicitly indicate that data transmission on the internet (such as email communication) inherently contains security gaps. It is not possible to secure such data 100% against access by third parties.
Information on the responsible party
The responsible party for data processing on this website is:
Vor dem Klopp 4
Phone: +49 6725-300063
The responsible party is the natural or legal person who, alone or with others, bears decision-making authority about the purpose and means of processing of personal data (such as name, email addresses and similar).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent, even when already issued, at any time. Please simply send us an informal notification of this by email. The legality of any data processed prior to the revocation remains unaffected by this, however.
Objection to data collection in specific cases as well as direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If the data processing occurs on the basis of Art 6 (1.e or 1.f) of the GDPR, then you have the right to object to processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation; this also applies for any profiling based on those stipulations. The respective legal basis on which data processing is based can be found in this Data Protection Declaration. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate that necessary legitimate justification for the processing exists that outweighs your interests, rights and freedoms or where processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims (Objection as per Art. 21 (1) GDPR).
If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of your personal data for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, then your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection as per Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
Right to Complaint to the responsible oversight authority
In the event of a violation of the GDPR, the Data Subject has the right to complaint to an oversight authority, and in particular within a Member State that is their normal place of residence, their place or work or the site of the suspected violation. This right to complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or legal remedies.
Right of Data Portability
You have the right to receive the data that we have processed automatically as a result of your consent or to fulfil a contract in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit that data to another controller. Insofar as you demand direct transmission of data to another controller, these will be performed to whatever extent this is technically feasible.
Access, Blocking, Erasure and Rectification
Within the framework of the applicable legal regulations, you have the right to free access to your personal data as stored by us, including information about as its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing, as well as a right to correction, blocking or erasure of this data, as applicable. For more information on this or other questions related to your personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address provided in the Legal Notes section of this website.
Right to Restriction of Processing
You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us regarding this at any time at the address provided in the Legal Notes section of this website. The right to restriction of processing applies to the following cases:
If you dispute the correctness of your personal data that we have stored, then we generally require a certain period of time to review the complaint. For the duration of that review, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data occurred / is occurring in an improper manner, then you can demand a restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
When we no longer require your personal data, but where you require it for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, then you have the right to demand a restriction of processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
If you submit an objection based on Art. 21 (1) GDPR, then a weighing must be made between your interests and ours. Where it is not otherwise determined which interests have priority, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
You have restricted the processing of your personal data, the data may be correspondingly marked and — excepting its storage — will only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of public interest to the European Union or one of its Member States.
