Data Retention Period
General Information about the Legal Basis for Data Processing on this Website
Notice of Data Transfer to the USA and Other Third Countries
We use tools from companies based in the USA and other countries that do not offer adequate data protection standards. When these tools are active, your personal data can be transferred to these third countries and processed there. Please note that these countries may not guarantee a level of data protection comparable to EU standards. For example, US companies are obligated to disclose personal data to security authorities without you being able to take legal action against this. It is therefore possible that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) process, analyze, and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Revoking Your Consent to Data Processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of data processing carried out before the revocation is not affected by the revocation.
Right to Object to Data Collection in Special Cases and to Direct Marketing (Art. 21 DSGVO)
If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as 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 under Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO).
Right to Complain to the Competent Supervisory Authority
In the case of breaches of the DSGVO, the data subjects have a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, their place of work, or the place of the alleged breach. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Information, Correction, and Deletion
You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing at any time, within the scope of applicable legal regulations. You also have the right to have your data corrected or deleted. For this purpose and for any other questions regarding personal data, you can always contact us.
Right to Limit Processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to limit processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend, or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have filed an objection under Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data - apart from its storage - may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Objection to Promotional Emails
The use of contact data published in the context of the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby prohibited. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.
