- The processing of personal data includes all operations, for example, the collection, storage, transmission, archiving or deletion of personal data (definition Art. 4 para. 2 GDPR).

The following contents provide you with a brief overview of the processing of personal data; more detailed information can be found in the respective passages presented in detail.
Security on our website (SSL Secure Socket Layer)
Our website is equipped with an SSL certificate, with the help of which data transmission processes are encrypted. This happens, for example, when you send us a message via a form. However, we would like to point out that one hundred percent security in electronic data processing is not possible and that there is always a residual risk.
Data you transmit to us
On this site, we process data that you enter yourself, for example in a form. In this case, the purpose of the processing results from the type of form and, on the other hand, from this data protection declaration. Even if you send us a message by e-mail, for example, or contact us in some other way, we will process your data in accordance with the purpose of the contact.
Automatic server log files
On the other hand, our server automatically records all accesses and thus also IP addresses (log files), this serves the defence against attacks, the analysis of access figures and the smooth operation.
In addition to the pure server log files, which also provide us with information about page views, we use analysis tools. These tools give us detailed insights into the content visited on our site, the flow of behaviour and, for example, the country from which access took place. In order for such services to function, cookies must be set on the page visitor or scripts must be executed.
Plugins und Content Delivery Networks
We sometimes use plugins and content delivery networks, well-known examples of such services being the video service Youtube or the map service Google Maps. If such services are integrated via a website, access data is transmitted to the services. This is usually your IP address and other metadata, such as the time and date of access. As a rule, this data is made available by setting cookies.
Other data recipients:
a) Use of processors
In accordance with the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO, we use order processors, for example in the area of IT services, web hosting, e-mail hosting or printing services. These process personal data for us in accordance with instructions.
b) Use of non-specialist services
If it is necessary (for example, to execute a contract), we pass on your data to banks, other payment service providers, shipping service providers, our tax advisor or lawyer, for example.
c) Legal obligations
In addition, in certain cases we are obliged to make a report to the competent authorities on the basis of the Money Laundering Act. In addition, we are subject to further legal obligations, such as trade laws or tax law, in this context we have to pass on certain data to tax authorities, for example.
d) Clarification of criminal offences
Insofar as it is necessary for the investigation of a criminal offence, we pass on data to the law enforcement authorities.
General information on deletion periods for personal data
We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose. As far as necessary, we process your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes the initiation and execution of a contract; in addition, we are obliged to comply with statutory retention obligations. Relevant periods are usually §257 HGB and §158 AO with a retention period of up to ten years. In addition, the general limitation period according to §195 BGB (German Civil Code) is relevant in cases where we want to provide evidence in our legitimate interest that we have acted in a legally correct manner. If the data processing is based on your consent, we will delete your data after your revocation.
Transfer of personal data to a non-EU country
If possible, we try to have all service providers and services provided by providers within the European Union. A transfer to a third country is possible if you have given us your consent and/or we have concluded a contract for commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO, taking into account appropriate guarantees. In individual cases, we may use plugins or tools that are hosted in third countries, but we use them on the basis of our legitimate interests. In these cases, we point out the circumstance where appropriate.
Obligation to provide personal data
The provision of personal data is regularly required for the initiation, conclusion, processing and reversal of a contract. In the event that you do not provide the required personal data, it will not be possible for us to conclude and fulfil a contract with you.
3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
The legal bases for the processing of personal data are exceptional circumstances that permit the processing of personal data. The main legal bases are illustrated in particular in Art. 6 DSGVO. The legal bases according to which we process personal data are described in the individual processing operations in this data protection declaration.
Consent given (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO)
Consent is one of these legal bases and requires that the consenting person gives it in an informed manner and on a voluntary basis. Consent based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit a DSGVO can be revoked at any time without giving reasons.
Contract-related data processing (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO)
The processing of personal data for the initiation or execution of contracts is also a legal basis and is defined in Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.
4. Your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation

Insofar as complete deletion is not possible, for example because we have to comply with legal retention obligations or we can assert legitimate interests for another reason, we will restrict your data until the
Right to restriction of processing according to Art. 18 DSGVO
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the verification, 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 request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you have lodged an objection under Article 21(1) of the 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, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for 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.
Right to data portability according to Art. 20 DSGVO
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format.

Right to object to certain processing operations and direct marketing under Article 21 GDPR.
If the data processing is based on Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds relating to 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.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 DGVO in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG.
In the event of a breach of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

9. Data collection and data transmission initiated by the data subject
Communication by e-mail
If you send us an e-mail, we process your data according to the content and purpose of the message. As a rule, processing is carried out on the basis of pre-contractual measures or in the context of the implementation of a contractual relationship on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. It is a legitimate interest to process your request quickly and efficiently.

Please note that we store all incoming e-mails for a period of ten years in accordance with the principles of proper accounting, starting on the first day of the following year in which the message was received.

Communication by telephone or fax.
Even if you contact us by telephone or fax, we process your data either for the initiation and implementation of contractual relationships (if the content is product- or service-related) and/or in our legitimate interest, analogously to contacting you by e-mail.
We do not record the content of conversations, but we may make notes for the purpose of processing your enquiry. We store these until the purpose of the data processing has been achieved and we no longer have a legitimate interest in processing them. If necessary, contents of the conversation will be stored anonymously for statistical purposes. Of course, you can request deletion at any time.
10. Analysis tools
In order to design the website in line with requirements and to improve it on an ongoing basis, this online offering uses Matomo, an open-source software for the statistical evaluation of visitor access.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is stored on our web server.
We use Matomo with the extension "AnonymizeIP". This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that they cannot be directly linked to a specific person. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Matomo is not merged with other data collected by us.

The Matomo programme is an open source project. Information from the third-party provider on data protection is available at https://matomo.org/privacy/
11. Plugins and Content Delivery Networks
This website embeds videos from the website YouTube. The operator of the website is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. When you visit one of our websites on which YouTube is embedded, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them.

12. Our social media presence
Data processing by social networks.
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can generally comprehensively analyse your user behaviour when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media presences, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered.
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, you can be shown interest-based advertising inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or have been logged in.
Our social media presences are intended to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the internet and to enable effective user information and communication with users. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal grounds, which are to be stated by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
Responsible person and assertion of rights.
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both vis-à-vis us and vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. vis-à-vis Facebook).
Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.
