Phone: +49 40 33463437
The responsible party is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g., names, email addresses, etc.).
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right at any time to receive free information about the origin, recipient, and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have a right to request the correction or deletion of this data. If you have given consent to data processing, you can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. In addition, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. For this and for further questions on the subject of data protection, you can contact us at any time.
Right to complain with the competent supervisory authority
In the case of violations of the GDPR, the persons affected have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, their place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. The right of appeal exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the data to be transferred directly to another controller, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Information, Deletion and Correction
Following applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient, and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this and other questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time.
Right to Restriction of Processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. During the period of this examination, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you may demand the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it 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 deletion.
- If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your and our interests. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may - apart from their storage - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
Revocation of your Consent to Data Processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given 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 Advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right at any time 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. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found 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 that outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO).
Inquiry by E-mail or Telephone
If you contact us by e-mail or telephone, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, e-mail address or telephone number, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us to handle your request. We do not pass on 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 processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested; consent can be revoked at any time. The data you send us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for the data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

Our website uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small data packets and are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or an automatic deletion is carried out by your web browser. In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services provided by the third-party company. Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them. Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or display advertising. Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process, to provide certain functions you desire, or to ensure the security of the website (necessary cookies) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is given. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing necessary cookies for the secure, technically error-free, and optimized provision of his services. If consent to the storage of cookies and similar recognition technologies was requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 Para. 1 TTDSG); consent can be revoked at any time. You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited. If cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this in the context of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, ask for your consent.
Server Log Files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser Type and Browser Version
- Operating System used
- Referrer URL
- Time of the Server Request
- IP Address
A merger of this data with other data sources is not carried out. The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the secure and technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website - for this, the server log files must be recorded.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, provided that 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 processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) which you give by sending it; consent can be revoked at any time. The data you enter in the contact form remains with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose for the data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
SSL or TLS Encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
