Data protection declaration

Thank you for visiting our web page. The secure handling of your data is particularly important to us. We would therefore like to inform you in detail about the use of your data when visiting our website.

Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 paragraph S 1 lit. a DSGVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 paragraph S. 1 lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to processing operations necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 paragraph S. 1 lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 paragraph S. 1 lit. d DSGVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 paragraph S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail.

Information disclosure

Disclosure of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than listed below does not occur. We will only pass your data to third parties if:

  • you have given your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO,
  • disclosure is necessary according to Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding and legitimate interest in the non-communication of your data,
  • for the case that a statutory obligation for disclosure exists in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. c DSGVO,
  • this is permitted by law and is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the settlement of contractual relationships with you.

Rights of persons affected

You have the right:

  • To request, in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO, information about your personal data processed by us. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of the personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data are or have been disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to correct, delete, object to or limit processing of your data, the existence of a right of appeal, the origin of your data (unless collected by us), and the existence of automated decision-making (including profiling) and any significant information regarding these;
  • To request, in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO, that any incorrect or incomplete personal data of yours that are stored with me be corrected without delay;
  • To request, in accordance with Art.17 DSGVO, that personal data of yours that are stored with us be deleted insofar as the processing of said data is not required for exercising the right to free expression of opinion and information, for fulfilling a legal requirement, on the grounds of public interest or for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims;
  • To request, in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO, a restriction of the processing of your personal data as insofar as you are disputing the correctness of the data or the processing is unlawful but refuse the deletion of data no longer required by us but needed by you to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or needed by you in connection with an objection against processing lodged by you in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO;
  • To request, in accordance with Art. 20 DSGVO, that your personal data provided to us be made available to you or another authorised party in a structured, standard and machine-readable format;
  • To revoke, in accordance with Art. 7, paragraph 3 DSGVO, the consent that you previously provided to us, at any time. This means that we will not be permitted to continue processing the data based on this consent in future;
  • To lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77, DSGVO, you have the right, regardless of any other administrative or judicial legal remedy, to complain to a supervisory authority. For this purpose, you can generally contact the supervisory authority in your usual place of residence or work or the place of alleged infringement, if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data concerning him or her breaches the basic data protection regulation of the EU (DS-GVO).

Right of revocation

Safety information

We secure our website and other IT systems using technical and organisational measures against the loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorised parties.
