This Privacy Policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how this is done and for what purpose. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. via email communication) may have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this Privacy Policy.

Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such advertising, including profiling to the extent it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (Objection on the basis of Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).

Right to file complaints with the supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects have a right to file complaints with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right to file complaints is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract automatically handed over to you or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another controller, this will only occur if it is technically feasible.

SSL and TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses an SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your URL bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Disclosure, blocking, erasure and rectification

As permitted by law, you have the right to access information free of charge at any time about your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data rectified, blocked or erased. For this, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. For this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to review this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data has taken/is taking place unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of data erasure.
  • If we no longer require your personal data but you do to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of the data being erased.
  • If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, your and our interests must be weighed. As long as it has not been ascertained whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.

Where processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data, apart from being stored, may be processed only with your consent, or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person, or on the grounds of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
