A. General

For better comprehensibility, we refrain from differentiating between the genders. In the interests of equal treatment, the relevant terms apply to all genders. The meaning of the terms used, such as “personal data” or their “processing”, can be found in Article 4 of the GDPR.

Personal data processed within the framework of this website includes

  • Usage data (e.g. pages visited on our website) and
  • content data (e.g. entries in online forms).


B. Specific

Data protection notice
We guarantee that we will only process your data in connection with the processing of your enquiries and for internal purposes as well as in order to provide the services you have requested or to make content available.

Principles of data processing
We process your personal data only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations. Legal bases are:

  • Provision of our contractual services
  • Processing is a legal requirement
  • Existence of your electronic consent (e.g. registration for the newsletter)
  • Enforcement of our legitimate interests

We would be happy to show you where the above legal bases are regulated:

Processing for the fulfilment of our services and implementation of contractual measures.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO

Processing for the fulfilment of our legal obligations
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) and Art. 7 DSGVO

Processing to protect our legitimate interests

Data transfer to third parties
We would like to point out that data is transferred to third parties.

Your data will only be passed on to third parties within the framework of legal requirements. We only pass on your data if this is necessary, for example, for contractual purposes or on the basis of legitimate interests in the economic and effective operation of our business.

Where we use subcontractors to provide our services, we take appropriate legal precautions and technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the relevant legal requirements.

Data transfer to a third country or an international organisation
Third countries are countries in which the GDPR is not directly applicable law. This basically includes all countries outside the EU or the European Economic Area.

There is no data transfer to a third country or an international organisation without a legal basis.

Storage period of your personal data
We adhere to the principles of data economy and data avoidance. This means that we only store your data for as long as necessary to fulfil the aforementioned purposes or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. If the respective purpose ceases to apply or after the relevant periods have expired, your data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

If you contact us via the website, you agree to electronic communication. Personal data is processed when you contact us electronically. The information you provide will be stored exclusively for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

We would like to inform you about the legal basis for this:
Processing for the fulfilment of our services and implementation of contractual measures.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO

We would like to point out that e-mails can be read or changed unauthorised and unnoticed during transmission. Furthermore, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that we use software to filter unwanted e-mails (spam filter). The spam filter can reject e-mails if they have been falsely identified as spam by certain characteristics.

What rights do you have?

a) Right to information
You have the right to obtain information about your stored data free of charge. Upon request, we will inform you in writing which of your personal data we have stored. This also includes the origin and recipients of your data as well as the purpose of the data processing.

b) Right to rectification
You have the right to have your data stored by us corrected if it is incorrect. In doing so, you can demand a restriction of processing, e.g. if you dispute the accuracy of your personal data.

c) Right to block
Furthermore, you can have your data blocked. To ensure that a blocking of your data can be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for control purposes.

d) Right to deletion
You may request the deletion of your personal data, provided that there is no legal obligation to retain it. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request. If the relevant legal requirements exist, we will also delete your personal data without your request.

e) Right to data portability
You have the right to request that we provide you with the personal data you have provided to us in a format that allows it to be transferred to another entity.

You have the right to object to the processing of your data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (e) and (f) at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

If personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

h) Right of revocation
You have the possibility at any time to revoke your consent to the processing of your data with effect for the future without giving reasons. You will not suffer any disadvantages as a result of the revocation. To do so, it is sufficient to send us an appropriate e-mail.

However, such a revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out up to the time of the revocation on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO.

To exercise your data subject rights, send us an email to the following address:

Protection of your personal data
We take contractual, technical and organisational security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that data protection laws are complied with and thus to protect the processed data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons.

The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server. For this purpose, 128-bit SSL (AES 128) encryption technology is used.

In doing so, your personal data is protected within the scope of the following points (excerpt):

a) Maintaining the confidentiality of your personal data.
In order to maintain the confidentiality of your data stored with us, we have taken various measures to control access, entry and access control.

b) Maintaining the integrity of your personal data
In order to maintain the integrity of your data stored with us, we have taken various measures to control disclosure and input.

c) Maintaining the availability of your personal data
In order to maintain the availability of your data stored with us, we have taken various measures to control orders and availability.

The security measures in place are continuously improved in line with technological developments. Despite these precautions, due to the insecure nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmission to our website. Therefore, any data transmission by you is at your own risk.
