Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities
If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German state in which our company is headquartered.

Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.
Opposition to promotional emails
We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. A transfer or other use of the data does not take place. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files subsequently if there are any concrete indications of illegal use.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

The input data will only be used for the purpose of using the respective site or service for which you have registered.

We will process the data provided during registration only based on your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will continue to store the data collected during registration for as long as you remain registered on our website. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
4. Plugins and tools
Google Fonts (local embedding)
This website uses so-called Google Fonts provided by Google to ensure the uniform use of fonts on this site. These Google fonts are locally installed so that a connection to Google’s servers will not be established in conjunction with this application.
For more information on Google Fonts, please follow this link: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and consult Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of Google at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
5. Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses the Google Analytics web analysis service, provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Republic of Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are saved to your computer and which permit an analysis of site use. The information generated by the cookies on your use of this website, including your IP address, are generally transmitted to a server belonging to Google in the USA, where the information is then stored.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on GDPR Article 6 (1) point f. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. If the relevant consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of GDPR Article 6 (1) point a, and consent may be revoked at any time.
We have enabled the IP anonymisation function for this website. This means that, within Member States of the European Union and European Economic Area, your IP address is truncated by Google before being sent to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information to assess your use of the website on the webmaster’s behalf to compile reports regarding website activities and provide other services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the webmaster. Google will not associate your browser’s IP address, transmitted for Google Analytics purposes, with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent cookies from being stored by using a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, be advised that you may not be able to make full use of all the website’s functions in such a case. Furthermore, if you wish to prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and concerning your site use (incl. your IP address) and if you wish to opt out of such data being sent to and processed by Google, you can download and install a browser plug-in from the following link: https://tools.1d5920f4b44b27a802bd77c4f0536f5a-gdprlock/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Objection to the collection of data
To prevent data collection by Google Analytics, click on the link below. This sets an opt-out cookie, which prevents the collection of your data when you visit our website in the future: Disable Google Analytics.
We have concluded a contract processing agreement with Google, and we fully apply the strict specifications of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.
Demographics under Google Analytics
This website uses the demographics function of Google Analytics, which makes it possible to generate reports showing details of site visitors’ ages, genders and interests. These data relate to interest-related Google advertising as well as visitor data of third-party suppliers. They do not permit the tracking of individual persons. However, you can disable this function via the display settings in your Google account at any time, or you can stop the recording of your data by Google Analytics, as detailed under “Objection to the collection of data”.
Duration of storage
Any user data and event-specific data saved by Google and associated with cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies or Android advertising IDs) are anonymised or erased after 14 months. Details are available via the following link: https://support.1d5920f4b44b27a802bd77c4f0536f5a-gdprlock/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en
