Responsible body in terms of data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):
Your rights as a data subject
You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details provided by our data protection officer:
- Information about your data stored by us and their processing,
- Correction of incorrect personal data,
- Deletion of your data stored by us,
- Restriction of data processing, insofar as we are not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations,
- Objection to the processing of your data by us and
- Data portability if you have consented to data processing or have concluded a contract with us.
If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with future effect.
You can contact the supervisory authority responsible for you at any time with a complaint. The competent supervisory authority depends on the state of your place of residence, your work or the alleged violation. A list of the supervisory authorities (for the non-public area) with address can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Purpose of data processing by the responsible body and third parties
We only process your personal data for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We only share your personal information with third parties if:
- You have given your explicit permission,
- the processing is necessary to process a contract with you,
- the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation,
the processing is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or for the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose ceases to exist or these deadlines have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Collection of general information when visiting our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content of websites you have requested and is mandatory when using the Internet. They are processed in particular for the following purposes:
- Ensuring a problem-free connection to the website,
- Ensuring smooth use of our website,
- Evaluation of system security and stability as well
- for further administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest for the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. The recipient of the data is only the responsible body and, if applicable, the processor.
We may statistically evaluate anonymous information of this type in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically gives us certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our websites to be displayed correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Use of script libraries (Google web fonts)
In order to present our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, e.g. Google web fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently unclear whether and if so for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your next visit.
