If your personal data is processed to operate direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.

If you request the data to be transferred directly to another data controller, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.

3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are known as “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in the memory of your device until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognise your browser when you next visit the site.
Cookie consent with CCM19
Our website uses the cookie consent technology of CCM19 to obtain your consent to the storage of certain cookies in your browser and to document this in a data protection compliant manner. The provider of this technology is Papoo Software & Media GmbH, Auguststr. 4, 53229 Bonn (hereinafter CCM19).
When you enter our website, a CCM19 cookie (ccm_consent) is stored in your browser, in which the consents you have given or the revocation of these consents are stored. This data will not be shared with the CCM19 provider.
The collected data will be stored until you request us to delete it or delete the CCM19 cookie yourself, or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. This data includes:
- Browser type and version
- your operating system
- referrer URL
- host name of the accessing computer
- time of the server request
- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The legal basis for collecting this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of the website - to ensure this, server log files must be recorded.
If you contact us via the contact form, the requested information on the form, including contact data specified by you, shall be stored by us solely for the purpose of processing the request and for follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is thus carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. To do so all you need to do is send us an email. This does not affect the legality of any data processing done before we receive your request.
We shall keep the data you enter in the contact form until you request its deletion, you revoke your consent to it being stored or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.
Enquiries by email, telephone or fax
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, we will store and process your inquiry including all resultant personal data (name, inquiry) in order to handle your issue. We will not share this information without your consent.
The legal basis for collecting these data is Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, where your enquiry is in connection with fulfilment of a contract, or is required for execution of pre-contractual activities. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/or our entitled interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) as we have an entitled interest in the effective processing of the enquiries received by us.
We shall keep the data you enter in the contact form until you ask us to delete them, you revoke your consent for them to be stored or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your issue has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions, especially statutory retention periods, remain unaffected.
4. Plugins and tools
YouTube with enhanced privacy protection
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. Operators of the pages is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this means that YouTube does not store information about visitors to this site before they watch the video. However, the enhanced privacy mode does not necessarily exclude the sharing of data with YouTube’s partners. So, regardless of whether you watch a video, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network.
If you click on a YouTube video on our website, you will be connected to YouTube’s servers. The YouTube server is then informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you are allowing YouTube to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
In addition, after starting a video, YouTube may store various cookies on your device. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can receive information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to capture video statistics, improve user-friendliness, and prevent fraud. These cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
Where applicable, after a YouTube video is launched, additional data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no control.
YouTube is used in the interests of making our online presence more attractive. This constitutes a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Google Web Fonts
To ensure that fonts are presented as uniformly as possible, this website uses “web fonts” which are made available by Google. The Google fonts are installed locally. There is no connection to Google servers.
On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). The plugins enable the display of interactive elements or content (e.g. videos, graphics or text contributions) and are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue tile, the term “Like” or a “thumbs up” symbol)m or are marked with the phrase “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement, thereby offering a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active
When you visit a page on this website which contains a plugin of this type, your browser is connected directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user's device, which integrates it into the online offer. User profiles can thereby be generated from processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and thus inform users according to our level of knowledge.
By incorporating plugins, Facebook receives information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can associate your visit with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example using the “like” button or by posting a comment, the corresponding information will also be sent immediately to the supplier’s server and saved there. If you are not a Facebook member, there is still a possibility that Facebook may retrieve and store your IP address.
If you are a Facebook user and do not want Facebook to collect information about you via our website and link it to your Facebook user data, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
You can also block Facebook social plugins by using browser add-ons, for example with a “Facebook blocker”.
