SSL or TLS encryption

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, erasure and rectification
Within the scope of applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time and at no charge to obtain information about the personal data we have stored on you, their origin and by whom they have been received and the purpose of processing; you also have the right to have these data rectified, blocked or erased at any time.

If the processing of your personal data has been unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you require them to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.

Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax.

Such data are processed on the basis of Art. 6(1) lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

4. Social media
Facebook plugins (like & share buttons)
Our pages contain plugins of the social network Facebook, provider Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA.

You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_en
When you visit our pages, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server.

If you click the Facebook “like” button while logged on to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate your visit of our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we do not have any knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or its use by Facebook.

5. Analysis tools and marketing
This website uses functions provided by the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of the way you use the website. The information created by the cookie about your use of the website is usually sent to and stored on a Google server in the USA.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on Art. 6(1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its web services and its marketing.
We have enabled the IP anonymisation function on this website. This will cause Google to truncate your IP address in Member States of the European Union or in other state parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google Server in the US and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the way you use the website, to collate reports on website activities and in order to provide other services relating to website activity and internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data held by Google.
You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies from being stored, however please note that may mean that you are then unable to make full use the functions on this website. You can also prevent the data (including your IP address), which are captured by the cookie and related to your use of the website, sent to or processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Processing of data on our behalf
We have concluded a contract with Google for the processing of data on our behalf; we fully implement the stringent requirements of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.
Data stored by Google at the user and event level that is linked to cookies, user IDs or marketing IDs (e.g. doubleclick cookies, android advertising ID) is anonymised or deleted after 14 months. Details can be found under the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en
Google Maps (with consent)
This page uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To ensure the privacy of our website, Google Maps is disabled the first time you visit our website. A direct connection to Google’s servers will only be established if you enable Google Maps yourself (consent according to Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR). This prevents your data from being sent to Google the first time you access the site.
Upon enabling Google Maps, your IP address will be stored. This IP address is then usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. After enabling Google Maps, the provider of this page has no influence on this data transmission.
