Data Protection Policy

I. General notes and mandatory information

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection policy.

If you use this web page, various personal details will be collected. Personal data means data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and why we do this.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by email) can create security weaknesses. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Responsible body

The responsible body for data processing on this website can be found in the printing details. The responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).

Right of objection to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR takes place, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which the processing is based can be found in this data protection policy. If you make an objection, we will no longer process your personal data concerned, unless we can provide compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing is used to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such promotion; this also applies to profiling if it is connected with such direct promotion. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing processes are only possible with your consent. We will expressly obtain it from you before starting data processing. You may revoke this consent at any time. To do so, you need only notify us by email. The lawfulness of the data processing operations carried out up to the revocation will remain unaffected by the revocation.

Right of appeal to the competent regulator

Visitors to the website are informed that they have a right of complaint to the responsible regulator in the event of data protection breaches. The responsible regulator for data protection law queries is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company has its headquarters. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found on the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to some other responsible person in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transmission of the data to another responsible person, this will only take place to the extent that it is technically viable.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Notification, blocking and deletion

You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, it's origin and recipients and the purpose of the processing and, if appropriate, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the printing details if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.

Objection to advertising mails

We object to any use of the contact data published within the scope of the printing details requirement to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising information being sent, for example by spam emails.

Changes to this data protection policy

We reserve the right to change these data protection regulations at any time in compliance with the statutory requirements.

With the deactivation of cookies the functionality this site may be restricted.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.

Cookies which are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide specific functions requested by you (e.g. a shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimal provision of his services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, they will be treated separately in this data protection policy.

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of server inquiry
  • IP address (which is anonymised immediately after receipt)

This data is not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of specific indications of an illegal use. This data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the technically error-free and optimal presentation of his website - and the server log files must be recorded for this.

Newsletter data

If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No further data will be collected. We use this data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The data entered in the newsletter registration form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

In order to obtain information about the use of our newsletter, we use personal tracking for the newsletter, through which we receive the following information:
  • whether the email has been opened
  • time of the call and
  • the corresponding email and IP addresses

Tracking of the newsletter (more precisely, the use of a tracking ID) enables:

  • the alternative display of the newsletter in the browser ("If this mail is not displayed correctly, click here .."),
  • "Deep-Links" with registration: reference to content areas and direct visiting after previous login,
  • Unsubscribing from the newsletter via the link at the end of the email.

Tracking therefore takes place in the interest of continuous improvement of the quality and content of our newsletter. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Within the scope of participation in competitions you have the possibility of uploading pictures or videos (files). If you do this, we will store the uploaded data files and the data entered by you (e.g. first and last name).

The data entered will be used exclusively for the performance of the competition. The storage of the data is required for participation in the competition. The data will only be stored with your consent (art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. In this case we will delete your data, provided that this does not breach any statutory retention periods.

If you are not a winner after the end of the competition, your data will be deleted no later than three (3) months after the end of the competition. If you win, your data (including name and contact data) will be retained and deleted after the legal retention periods have expired.
