Scope and permission for the processing of personal data We collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide the functionality of our website and our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user.
An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.
The legal basis for processing personal data with the prior consent of the person concerned is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and these interests outweigh the interest of the data subject, taking into account the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing of the data.
Data erasure and storage duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, the data may be stored if we are required to do so by law in order to process the data. In this case, the data will be blocked or deleted when the legally prescribed storage period expires, unless it is necessary for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Our newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A pixel-code is a miniature graphic embedded in emails sent in HTML format for log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. The embedded pixel-code allows us to determine if and when an email was opened by an individual and which links in the email were accessed by that individual.
Such personal data collected via the pixel-code contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by us in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent submitted via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation these personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for the processing. A deregistration from the receipt of our newsletter will always be interpreted as a revocation.

The analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents. The analysis cookies tell us how the website is used and enable us to continually optimise our services.
Our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO also lies in these purposes.
We have integrated contents, services and achievements of other offerers on the Internet side. These include, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. In order for these data to be called up and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as „third party providers“) thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.

In this case, this process serves statistical purposes, among others. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users accordingly.
Use and usage of Facebook
The data controller has integrated Facebook components on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting point operated on the Internet, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of the person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the „Like“ button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

Instagram services are operated by Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this Web site is accessed, operated by the data controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding Instagram component.

(2) is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or
(3) with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.
