Applicable legal bases

In accordance with art. 13 GDPR, we are hereby informing you of the legal basis for our data processing. If the legal basis is not mentioned in the Privacy Policy, the following applies: The legal basis for obtaining consent is art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and art. 7 GDPR. The legal basis for processing for the fulfilment of our services and the execution of contractual measures as well as for replying to enquiries is art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for processing to fulfil our legal obligations is art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for processing to protect our legitimate interests is art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, art. 6 para. 1 (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Changes and updates to this Privacy Policy

We ask you to regularly check the contents of our privacy policy. We will adapt the data protection policy as soon as changes to the data processing carried out by us make this necessary. If we process personal data on the basis of an act of cooperation on your part (e.g. consent) and we make changes that require a new cooperation, we shall inform you by e-mail. If you do not agree to any further processing of your personal data within a specified period, we shall delete the corresponding data.

Security measures

In accordance with art. 32 GDPR, we take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection that is appropriate to the risk, thereby taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of processing and the different likelihood and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons; the measures include in particular safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as data access, input, transmission, safeguarding availability and its separation. Furthermore, we have established procedures that guarantee the exercise of data subjects' rights, deletion of data and response to data risks. In addition, we already take the protection of personal data into account during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and data protection-friendly defaults (art. 25 GDPR).

The security measures include, in particular, the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server. You can detect encryption by the fact that https:// is shown in your browser. You can also find out about the validity of the certificate used and its validation.

Cooperation with data processors and third parties

If we disclose data to other persons and companies (data processors or third parties) within the scope of our processing, transmit the data to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this shall only take place on the basis of a legal authorization (e.g. when transmission of the data to third parties, such as payment service providers, is required for contract fulfilment in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR ), you have consented, a legal obligation provides for this or it takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

Insofar as we outsource data processing to third parties on the basis of an “order processing contract”, this takes place on the basis of art. 28 GDPR.

Transfers to third countries

Insofar as we process data in a third-party country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this occurs in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this only takes place if it occurs for the fulfilment of our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual authorizations, we process data or have data processed in a third country only if the particular requirements of art. 44 ff. GDPR are met. This means, for example, that processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU (e.g. as for the USA by means of the "Privacy Shield") or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (called "standard contractual clauses").

Data subject rights

You have the right to request confirmation as to whether the data concerned are being processed and to request information about these data as well as further information and a copy of the data, in accordance with art. 15 GDPR. In accordance with art. 16 GDPR, you have the right to request the completion of data concerning you or the correction of inaccurate data concerning you. In accordance with art. 17 GDPR, you have the right to demand that the data in question be deleted immediately, or alternatively in accordance with art. 18 GDPR, to demand that the processing of the data be restricted. You have the right to request receipt of the personal data with which you have provided us in accordance with art. 20 GDPR and to request their transmission to other responsible bodies.

Right of revocation

In accordance with art. 7 para. 3 GDPR, you have the right to revoke your consent with future effect.

Right to object

You can always object to any future processing of your data in accordance with art. 21 GDPR. Objection may be lodged in particular against processing for direct advertising purposes.

Cookies can be small files or other types of information storage. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies", which are only stored for the duration of the current visit to our online presence. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. A cookie also contains information about its origin and the storage period.

Analytics Tools

Google Analytics

We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with Personal Information. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to and use of our App is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service, available at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html, and the Google Privacy Policy, available at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/. You may learn more about how Google collects and processes data specifically in connection with Google Analytics at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You may prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics by downloading and installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economical operation of our website in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the user's use of the website is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to analyze the use of our website by users, to compile reports on activities on this website and to provide us with other services relating to the use of this website and the Internet. Pseudonymous usage profiles of users may be created from the processed data.

We use Google Analytics only with activated IP anonymization. This means that the user’s IP address is truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, compile reports regarding website activity and provide other services to the website operator relating to website usage and internet usage.

The IP address sent by your browser will not be associated with other data held by Google. You can prevent the use of cookies by selecting the corresponding settings on your browser; however, we would like to point out that if you do so, you may not be able to fully utilize all functions provided on this website. Users may also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to use of the online offer and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link.

This website uses the Google Analytics "Demographics" function. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. These data come from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. These collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account, or you can generally forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section "Objecting to data collection."

For all else, the personal data will be anonymized or deleted after a lapse of 26 months. For details, see Google Analytics.

We have entered into a contract with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Plugins and Tools

Web Fonts

This website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google to support the uniform display of fonts. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. Google is therefore aware that our web page has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be applied by your computer instead. You will fins more information on Google Web Fonts and the Google Privacy Policy here.

Integration of third-party services and content

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website within the meaning of art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we include content or service offerings from third parties so that we can incorporate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content"). This always requires that the third-party providers of this content can see the IP address of users, since without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the users' browsers. Your IP address is therefore necessary to display this content. We strive to only use content from providers who use the IP address solely for the delivery of content.

Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as web beacons) for statistical or marketing purposes. "Pixel tags" can be used to analyze information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may include technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of our online offering. It may also be linked to such information from other sources.

The following presentation offers an overview of third-party providers and their content in addition to links to their privacy policies, which contain further references to the processing of data and the opportunities to object ('opt-out'), which have already been mentioned here to some extent:
