The responsible entity shall decide alone or jointly with others upon the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, contact data and suchlike).
Revocation of your consent to data processing

The legality of any data processing that has taken place prior to the revocation shall remain unaffected by said revocation.
Right to register a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority

The responsible supervisory authority for questions pertaining to data protection laws is the State Data Protection Office of the Federal State in which your company has its principal place of business. The following link provides you with a list of the data protection officers and their contact data:
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data that we process on the basis of your consent or automatically in the course of fulfilling a contract handed over either to yourself or to a third party. This shall take place in a machine-readable format. Inasmuch as you should demand a direct transfer of the data to a different responsible entity, this shall only be done inasmuch as it should be technically feasible.
Right to information, correction, blocking or deletion
Within the framework of the currently valid legal regulations, you have at all times the right to receive, free of charge, information pertaining to your archived personal data, the source of said data, the recipient thereof and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to the correction, blocking or deletion of said data. Further questions pertaining to this, and to any aspects of the processing of personal data, may be addressed to us at any time via the contact possibilities listed in the site information.
SSL- or TLS-encryption
For security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS-encryption. Data that you transmit via this website are thus rendered unreadable for third parties. You can identify an encrypted link by way of the “https://”address line of your browser and the padlock -symbol in the browser line.

Server Log Files
In server log files, the provider of the website automatically collects and archives the information that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
• The site visited within our domain
• Date and time of the server inquiry
• Browser type and browser version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• IP address
No merging of these data with data from any other sources shall take place. The basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR (General Data Protection Act), which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or of pre-contractual measures.
Data transmitted by way of the contact form, including your contact data, shall be archived in order to be able to process your inquiry or to be available for any follow-up questions. No forwarding of these data shall take place without your consent.
Processing of the data entered on the contact form shall take place solely upon the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Once given, you may revoke said consent at any time. A formless message sent by e-mail shall suffice for this. The legality of any data processing that has taken place prior to the revocation shall remain unaffected by said revocation.
Data transmitted by way of the contact form shall remain with us until you require us to delete them, revoke your consent to the archiving thereof or there should no longer be any need to archive the data. Mandatory legal stipulations – in particular retention periods – shall remain unaffected by this.
Our website uses plug-ins from YouTube for the integration and presentation of video content. The provider of this video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
Should you access a site with an integrated YouTube plug-in, a link to the servers of YouTube is established. In this way, YouTube learns which of our sites you have accessed.
YouTube is able to assign your surfing habits directly to your personal profile should you be logged in to your YouTube account. You may prevent this by logging out beforehand.
Usage of YouTube is in the interest of an appropriate presentation of our online-services. This represents a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Details on the handling of user data may be found in YouTube’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
Some cookies are “session cookies.” Such cookies are deleted automatically upon the termination of your browser session. Conversely, other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until such time as you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognise you when you revisit our website.
With a modern web browser you may monitor, restrict or prohibit the placing of cookies. Many web browsers may be configured in such a way that cookies are automatically deleted when the programme is closed. The deactivation of cookies may result in the functionality of our website being restricted.
The placing of cookies that are necessary for the practising of electronic communication procedures or for the provision of certain functions desired by yourself (e.g. shopping basket) is undertaken on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website we have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically smooth and impeccable provision of our services. Inasmuch as the placing of other cookies is practised (e.g. for analysing functions), these shall be dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.
Our website uses functions provided by the web analysing service Google Analytics. The provider of this web analysing service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
The placing of Google Analytics cookies is undertaken on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website we have a legitimate interest in analysing the behaviour of our users in order to optimise our offer and, where necessary, advertising also.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the function IP anonymisation. This guarantees that, within member states of the European Union or other states that are contractual parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google shortens your IP address prior to transmitting the same to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transfers the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. Google will use this information on the basis of our commission in order to evaluate your usage of the website, generate reports about website activities and to render to us other services connected to usage of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics shall not be merged with any other Google data.
The placing of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. This may, however, result in some of the functions of our website being restricted. In the same way, you may prevent the collection of data pertaining to your usage of the website including your IP address and the subsequent processing of the same by Google. This may be done by downloading and installing the browser plug-in obtainable via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objection to the Collection of Data
You may prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be placed that will prevent the collection of your data upon future visits to our website: deactivate Google Analytics.
Details pertaining to the handling of user data at Google Analytics may be found in the Google data protection declaration: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.
In order to fully comply with the statutory requirements on data protection, we have concluded a contract with Google on the processing of orders.
Demographic characteristics at Google Analytics
Our website uses the function “demographic characteristics” provided by Google Analytics. With the aid of this, reports may be compiled that contain statements pertaining to the age, gender and interests of the visitors to the site. These data come from interest-related advertising placed by Google as well as from the visitors’ data from other providers. The assignment of the data to a specific person is not possible. You may deactivate this function at any time. This is possible either by way of the display settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as described under “Objection to the Collection of Data.”
Google Web Fonts
Our website uses web fonts provided by Google. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
The use of these web fonts enables us to present our website to you in the manner we wish, notwithstanding the types of lettering that are available to you locally. This is done by retrieving the Google Web Fonts from a Google server in the USA and the forwarding of your data to Google connected therewith. These are your IP address and which of our sites you visited. The use of Google Web Fonts is performed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website we have a legitimate interest in the ideal presentation and transmission of our web presence.
Google has been certified for the US-European Data Protection Agreement “Privacy Shield”. This data protection agreement is intended to guarantee adherence to the level of data protection applicable in the EU.
