Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the General Data

dissemination, or otherwise making available, alignment, or combination,
restriction, erasure, or destruction performed on personal data,
whether by automated means or not.

about the type, scope, purpose, duration, and legal basis for the
processing of such data either under our own control or in conjunction
with others. We also inform you below about the third-party components

II. The rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right

  • to confirmation of whether data concerning them is being
    processed, information about the data being processed, further
    information about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the
    data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
  • to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
  • to
    the immediate deletion of data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17
    DSGVO), or, alternatively, if further processing is necessary as
    stipulated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said processing per Art.
    18 GDPR;
  • to receive copies of the data concerning them and/or
    provided by them and to have the same transmitted to other
    providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
  • to file
    complaints with the supervisory authority if they believe that data
    concerning them is being processed by the controller in breach of data
    protection provisions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to
whom it discloses data of any such corrections, deletions, or
restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18
GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is
impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless, users
have a right to information about these recipients.

Likewise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have
the right to object to the controller’s future processing of their data
pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In particular, an objection to
data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permissible.

III. Information about the data processing

Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked
as soon as the purpose for its storage ceases to apply, provided the
deletion of the same is not in breach of any statutory storage
obligations or unless otherwise stipulated below.

Server data

For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet
browser to us or to our server provider will be collected, especially to
ensure a secure and stable website: These server log files record the
type and version of your browser, operating system, the website from
which you came (referrer URL), the webpages on our site visited, the
date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you
visited our site.

The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data.

The basis for this storage is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our
legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality,
and security of our website.

The data will be deleted within no more than seven days, unless
continued storage is required for evidentiary purposes. In which case,
all or part of the data will be excluded from deletion until the
investigation of the relevant incident is finally resolved.


a) Session cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other
storage technologies stored on your computer by your browser. These
cookies process certain specific information about you, such as your
browser, location data, or IP address.  

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, efficient, and
secure, allowing us, for example, to display our website in different
languages or to offer a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for such processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR,
insofar as these cookies are used to collect data to initiate or process
contractual relationships.

If the processing does not serve to initiate or process a contract,
our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our
website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

When you close your browser, these session cookies are deleted.

whom we cooperate for the purpose of advertising, analyzing, or
improving the features of our website.

already been stored. However, the steps and measures required vary,
depending on the browser you use. If you have any questions, please use
the help function or consult the documentation for your browser or
contact its maker for support. Browser settings cannot prevent so-called
flash cookies from being set. Instead, you will need to change the

your Flash player or contact its maker for support.
