The controller for the data processing described below is named in the imprint.
When you visit our websites, our web server temporarily evaluates so-called usage data for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our website. This data consists of the following data categories:
- the name and address of the requested content,
- the date and time of the query,
- the amount of data transferred,
- the access status (content transferred, content not found),
- the description of the used web browser and operating system,
- the referral link, which indicates from which page you reached ours,
- the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened in such a way that a personal reference can no longer be established.
- The aforementioned log data will be evaluated anonymously.
The legal basis for the processing of usage data is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of providing the contents of the website and ensuring a device- and browser-optimised display.
In order to protect your data as comprehensively as possible from unwanted access, we implement technical and organisational measures. These measures include encryption procedures on our websites. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using TLS encryption. You can usually recognize this by the fact that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address line begins with https://.
You may contact us via telephone or e-mail. If we collect data from you during a telephone call, we will use this data exclusively to respond to your request or to contact you back if required. We also store and use data provided via e-mail exclusively for these purposes. The legal basis for processing data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If processing is necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract, the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. We delete the data if it is no longer required and there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary. With regard to processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, you have the right to object processing at any time. For this purpose, please contact the e-mail address stated in the imprint.
We use a consent management platform (consent or cookie banner) on our websites. The processing in connection with the use of the consent management platform and the logging of the settings you have made is based on our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR to provide you with our content according to your preferences and to be able to prove your consent(s). The settings you have made, the consents you have given and parts of your usage data are stored in a cookie. This ensures that it is kept for further website visits and that your consents continue to be traceable. You can find more information about this under the section “Necessary cookies”.
The provider of the consent management platform acts on our behalf and is strictly bound by our instructions (processor). A data processing agreement in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR has been concluded.
Unless we have already informed you in detail about the storage period, we delete personal data when they are no longer required for the aforementioned processing purposes and no legitimate interests or other (legal) reasons for storage prevent deletion.
Your rights as a data subject
When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a data subject:
Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether personal data of you is being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to obtain information about the processed personal data and to receive the information listed in detail in Art. 15 GDPR.
Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
You have the right to request the rectification of any inaccurate personal data relating to you and, where applicable, the completion of any incomplete data, without delay.
Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR)
You have the right to request the erasure of your personal data without delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 GDPR applies.
Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)
You have the right to request the restriction of processing, for the duration of the assessment by the controller, if one of the requirements listed in Art. 18 GDPR is met, e.g. if you have objected to the processing.
Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
In certain cases, which are listed in detail in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to request the transfer of this data to a third party.
Right to withdraw consent (Art. 7 GDPR)
If the processing of data is based on your consent, you are entitled to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR. Please note that the withdrawal of the consent only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the withdrawal is not affected.
Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (data processing for the protection of legitimate interests) or on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) GDPR (data processing for the protection of public interests or in the exercise of official authority), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are demonstrably compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR)
Pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection regulations. The right to lodge a complaint can be asserted in particular with a supervisory authority in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the suspected infringement.

Unless otherwise described above, please contact the controller of the data processing named in the imprint to assert your rights as a data subject.
