Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke the consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.


Right to object to data collection in exceptional cases and direct marketing (Art. 21 DSGVO)

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT BASED ON ART. 6 (1)(E) OR (F) DSGVO, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY FOR THE LEGAL BASIS OF THE PROCESSING. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING THAT WHICH OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS, AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING IS TO ENFORCE, EXERCISE, OR DEFEND LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 (1) DSGVO).
SUPPOSE YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING. IN THAT CASE, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA FOR SUCH MARKETING PURPOSES. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT ADVERTISING (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 (2) DSGVO).


Right of appeal to the competent regulatory authority

In the event of violations of the DSGVO, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a regulatory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work, or the location of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.


Right to data portability

You have the right to obtain data, which we process automatically based on your consent or for the fulfillment of a contract, handed over to you or a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. Suppose you request the direct transfer of the data to another party. In that case, this will be done only if technically feasible.


SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser's address line changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, third parties cannot read the data you transmit to us.


Information, deletion, and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, and the purpose of data processing. You also have the right, if necessary, to have this data corrected or deleted. For this purpose and further questions on personal data, you can contact us at any time.


Right to restriction of processing

The right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data is available to you. 
For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of 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 review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data is happening or happened unlawfully, 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 erasure.
If you have filed an objection under Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balance must be weighed between your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. 
As long as you have restricted the processing of your personal data, your data may - apart from being stored - only be used with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims or the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of a substantial public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Cookies

Our internet pages use so-called "cookies." Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your terminal device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until your web browser automatically deletes them. In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your terminal device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party company (e.g., cookies for processing payment services).
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., the shopping cart function or videos display). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or display advertising. 
Art. 6 (1)(f) DSGVO governs the storage of cookies necessary to carry out the electronic communication process (essential cookies) or provide certain functions requested by you (functional cookies, e.g., for the shopping cart function) or optimize the website (e.g., cookies to measure the web audience) unless any other legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. A consent request for the storage of cookies solely affects the storage of those cookies (Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO); consent can be revocable at any time.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Insofar as cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the framework of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, request your consent.


Inquiry by e-mail, telephone, or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone, or fax, your inquiry, including all resulting personal data (name, question), will be stored and processed by us to process your request. We do not forward this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1)(b) DSGVO, provided that your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO) if this has been requested.
The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed).

You have the right at any time to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient, and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have the right to appeal, the right to data portability, and the right to file a complaint with a competent regulatory authority. Furthermore, they may request the correction, deletion, and, under certain circumstances, the restriction of the processing of their personal data.

Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.
