Unless otherwise stated in the further information in this privacy policy, the processing of your data and its disclosure to third parties is limited to the data that is necessary and expedient to answer your enquiries and/or to fulfil the contract concluded between you and us, to protect our rights and to fulfil legal obligations. We will inform you which data is required for this before or during data collection. Insofar as we use third-party providers to provide our services, the data protection notices of the respective third-party providers apply.

Your rights under the GDPR
Under the GDPR, you are entitled to the rights listed below, which you can assert at any time with the controller named in Section 1 of this privacy policy:
‍Right to information: You have the right to request information from us as to whether and which of your data we process.

Right of cancellation
You have the right to withdraw your consent to data processing at any time.

Right to object
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data, which we base on our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If you exercise your right to object, we ask you to explain the reasons. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can prove to you that there are compelling legitimate grounds for data processing that outweigh your interests and rights.

Notwithstanding the above, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of advertising and data analysis.

Please send your objection to the contact address of the controller given above.


When do we delete your data?
We delete your data when we no longer need it or when you instruct us to do so. This means that - unless otherwise stated in the individual data protection notices in this privacy policy - we delete your data

when the purpose of the data processing has ceased to exist and the respective legal basis stated in the individual data protection notices no longer exists, e.g:
after termination of the contractual or membership relationship existing between us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or
after our legitimate interest in the further processing or storage of your data ceases to apply (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR),
if you exercise your right of cancellation and there is no other legal basis for processing within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b-f GDPR,
if you exercise your right to object and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for erasure.

However, if we still have to retain (certain parts of) your data for other purposes, for example because tax retention periods (usually 6 years for business correspondence or 10 years for accounting documents) or the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims arising from contractual relationships (up to four years) make this necessary or the data is needed to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, we will only delete (the part of) your data after these periods have expired. Until the expiry of these periods, however, we restrict the processing of this data to these purposes (fulfilment of retention obligations).

Content Delivery Network
We use a content delivery network (CDN) to deliver our website. A CDN is a network of regionally distributed servers connected via the Internet. Scaling storage and delivery capacities are made available via the CDN. This optimises the loading times of our Internet pages and ensures optimum data throughput even at high load peaks. User requests on our websites are routed via CDN servers. Statistics are compiled from these data streams. On the one hand, this serves to recognise potential threats to our website from malware at an early stage and, on the other, to continuously improve our offering and make our website more user-friendly for you as a user.

We would like to point out that, depending on the country of domicile of the service provider named below, the data collected via the service may be transferred and processed outside the European Union. In this case, there is a risk that the level of data protection prescribed by the GDPR will not be complied with and that the enforcement of your rights will be difficult or impossible.

Online advertising
We use services to display online advertising. The services we use collect certain user data via a cookie or pixel. This includes, in particular, the information from which website you came to our website (so-called referrer), which pages of our website you accessed, how long you visited our pages and what interactions you made there. In addition, data on the browser, computer system and device type you are using is collected. In addition, demographic information, such as age or gender, can also be collected as pseudonymised values via such a service. If you have consented to the collection of your location data, this may also be processed, depending on the provider. In order to collect and store this data, the respective service places a cookie or a so-called counting pixel on the end device you are using, which also collects the IP address assigned to you. However, this is shortened using a so-called IP masking procedure so that the IP address can no longer be assigned to your visit to our website. In principle, no clear data such as names or e-mail addresses are stored when the respective service is used. This is only the case if you are a member of a social network that offers one of the services listed below and merges your profile with the aforementioned data.

The data is analysed by the service we use in order to produce a report with statistical statements about the number of visitors generated by the advertising and the success of the advertising measure. The reports include the total number of users who were redirected to our website via our adverts. The reports also contain information on the users' end devices and browsers, where the users were located and the times at which the adverts were clicked. However, the reports do not contain any information that could be used to personally identify you as a user of our website and we would like to point out that, depending on the location of the service provider, the data collected via the service may be transferred and processed outside the European Union. In this case, there is a risk that the level of data protection prescribed by the GDPR will not be complied with and that the enforcement of your rights will be difficult or impossible.

Data concerned: Usage data (e.g. access times, websites clicked on), communication data (e.g. information about the device used, IP address)

Persons affected: Users of our online services

Processing purpose: Reach measurement, campaign performance monitoring, remarketing and interest-based and behaviour-based marketing

Otherwise, we use the respective service on the basis of our legitimate interest in directing visitor flows to our website, analysing these visitor flows in order to be able to continuously improve the functions, offers and user experience, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
