Your rights

You are authorized to exercise the following rights at any time by notifying our data protection officer (contact details above):

  • Get information about your saved personal data and its processing (Art. 15 GDPR),
  • Rectify incorrect personal data (Art. 16 GDPR),
  • Erase your saved personal data (Art. 17 GDPR),
  • Restrict data processing provided we are not yet authorized to erase your data due to legal obligations (Art. 18 GDPR),
  • Object to the processing of your personal data (Art. 21 GDPR) and
  • Data portability, provided you have consented to data processing or have signed a contract with us (Art. 20 GDPR).

Once you have provided your consent, you can revoke it at any time. This will only impact future data processing and will not negate the legality of any processing that occurred previously.

You have the right to complain to your responsible supervisory agency at any time (Art. 77 GDPR in connection with § 19 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act)). Your responsible supervisory authority is determined by the state in which you live or work, or the suspected infringement. A list of supervisory authorities (for the private sector) with addresses is available at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

General information collected during website use, type and purpose of data processing:

When you access our website, i.e. if you do not register or provide any other type of information, general information is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, and other similar details. Only information is collected that does not specifically identify you personally.

This information is processed for the following purposes:

  • Ensure a trouble-free connection to the website,
  • Ensure trouble-free use of the website,
  • Evaluate system security and stability, and
  • for other administrative purposes.

We do not use your data to make any conclusions about your identity.

We may evaluate such anonymous information statistically to improve our website and technical functionalities.

Legal basis:

Data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

Recipients:

The data is only sent to the responsible data controller and potentially technical service providers involved in the operation and maintenance of our website as processors.

Storage duration:

The data is erased once it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was originally collected. Data used only to deploy the website is always erased once the corresponding session has been completed.

Provision required or mandatory:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is not legally or contractually required. If we do not have the IP address and the consent to the use of cookies, however, it is not possible to guarantee the full functionality of our website. Individual services may also be unavailable or limited in scope. For this reason, the user has no right to object to this data collection.

SSL encryption

We use up-to-date encryption technologies (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS to ensure the security of your data during transmission.
