General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website
Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
We use tools from companies based in the USA or other data protectionally unsafe third countries, among others. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that there may be no data protection level comparable to that of the EU in these countries. For example, US companies are required to disclose personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) may process, analyze and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If the data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. You can find the respective legal basis on which a processing is based in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR). If your personal data is processed to operate direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection according to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).
Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, particularly in the member state of their habitual residence, their place of work, or the place of the alleged breach. The right to complain exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, in a commonly used, machine-readable format for yourself or a third party. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.
Information, deletion, and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing, and possibly a right to correct or delete this data. You can contact us at any time for this as well as for further questions on the topic of personal data.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us about this at any time. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
If you contest the accuracy of the personal data we hold about you, we generally need time to verify this. During the period of verification, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you require them for the exercise, defense, or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its deletion.
If you have lodged an objection according to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may only be processed – apart from their storage – with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this was solicited; this consent can be revoked at any time.
Request via email, phone, or fax
If you contact us by email, phone, or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of handling your concern. We will not share this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of the requests sent to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if it was solicited; this consent can be revoked at any time.
The data you sent to us via contact requests will remain with us until you instruct us to delete them, revoke your consent for storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been fully processed). Mandatory legal provisions – especially mandatory retention periods – remain unaffected.
