You can request rectifications or withdraw consent with future effect by sending us a corresponding message.

Amendments to our data protection provisions
We reserve the right to amend this Data Protection Notice from time to time to ensure that it is always in compliance with the current legal requirements or to reflect changes to our services in the Data Protection Notice, for example when introducing new services.

Using our website
When you use our website, we are obliged to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data and your rights and obligations in accordance with both the German Telemedia Act (TMG, Section 13 (1) 1) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has newly regulated data protection law in Europe since May 2018. This Data Protection Notice contains all the important information for you relating to this.

Collection of general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is collected automatically. This information (server logfiles) includes details such as the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information that cannot be used to identify you. This information is technically necessary in order to deliver website content you have requested correctly and is compulsory when using the internet. We statistically evaluate anonymous information of this type in order to optimise our internet presence and the technology behind it. We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. communication by email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Like many other websites, we too use cookies. Cookies are small text files that are saved on your hard drive by a website server. This automatically provides us with certain data about your computer and your connection to the internet, such as IP address, browser used, operating system. Cookies cannot be used to run programmes or transmit viruses to a computer. Using the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our web pages to be displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances is the data we collect disclosed to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent. Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time in your browser settings. Please use the help functions of your internet browser to find out how you can change these settings. Please be aware that some functions of our websites may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

SSL encryption
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use encryption procedures in line with the latest technology (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Erasure or restriction of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. That’s why we only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely restricted or erased in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Use of Matomo/Piwik
This website uses the open source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user across pages for the analysis of user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Matomo on the use of this website is saved on our server. The IP address is anonymised before it is saved. The use of this analysis tool is governed by Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. Processing takes place based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a GDPR; consent can be withdrawn at any time. The information collected by Matomo on the use of this website is not disclosed to third parties.


Data processing by social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. Details about the social networks we use are given below. Generally, social networks like Facebook, Twitter, etc. can extensively analyse your user behaviour if you visit their websites or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like-buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media sites triggers numerous pro-cessing operations relevant to data protection.

In detail:
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media site, the operator of this social media portal can link this visit to your user account. It may also be possible to collect your personal data when you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place using cookies, for example, which are saved on your device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of data collected in this way, social media portal operators can create user profiles that save your preferences and interests. In this way, targeted advertising can be displayed to you both inside and outside of the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, targeted advertising can be displayed to you on all devices you are or were logged into. Please also note that we are not able to track all processing operations on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details on this, please see the terms of use and data protection provisions of the relevant social media portals.

Legal basis
Our social media presences are designed to ensure the broadest possible presence on the internet. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. The analysis process-es initiated by the social networks may have different legal bases which must be stated by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) a GDPR).

Controller and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media presences (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered by this visit. You can generally assert your rights (information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Facebook). Please be aware that despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have complete influence over the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage period
The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request that we erase it or revoke your consent to storing it. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular storage periods – remain unaffected. We have no influence over the storage period of your data that is saved by the operators of the social networks for their own purpos-es. For more details on this, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their Data Protection Notice, see below).
