When you visit this website and use the various offers on it, we process your personal data as described in detail below.
We are operating this website together with an external service provider whom we have carefully selected and obliged in accordance with European data protection law.


1. contact: form and e-mail function
You have the possibility to contact us directly via a contact form on our website. If they do, you must provide your name, e-mail address and a subject for your request. We also offer you the opportunity to contact us directly via e-mail. If you click on our e-mail address on our website, your e-mail program will open and you can send us a message to our pre-registered e-mail address. If you contact us via email or web form, we also collect your IP address (the last 3 digits of your IP address are encrypted or not transmitted so that the IP address is anonymized) and the time when you send us your message.

You are under no legal or contractual obligation to provide your aforementioned data, nor is this necessary for the conclusion of a contract. Without this data, however, it will not be possible to process your request. We use the information you send us via contact form or e-mail exclusively to process your request. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b) EU-DSGVO. We process your IP address and the time of your inquiry in order to identify and ward off automated accesses and hacker attacks. In principle, we delete this data one week after your request has been answered or otherwise dealt with; in individual cases, however, we keep this data for longer if we are legally entitled or obliged to do so (e.g. by virtue of commercial or tax retention periods). System and mail log files are automatically deleted after 60 days.


2. Cookies
We do not use cookies to collect user data.


3. Server log files
Your browser transmits access data, so-called server log files, which we process each time you visit our website in order to guarantee system security and to compile usage statistics. In case of anonymization, the IP addresses are modified in such a way that the individual information about personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person, or only with a disproportionately large expenditure of time, cost and manpower. The following data is transmitted to us by server log files:

  • IP address
  • date and time of your website visit
  • difference of time zone related to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • website content
  • access status/HTTP-status code
  • data volume transmitted
  • referral website
  • Browser
  • system software and user surface
  • Language and version of browser software.

This data is required to ensure system security, e.g. to identify and block the attacker in the event of a hacker attack. This is in our overriding, legitimate interest according to Art. 6 I 1 f GDPR.


4. Data security
In order to protect your personal data as best as possible, we use SSL encryption (https standard) for technical and organizational security measures, which are also adapted in accordance with the current state of the art in each case.


5. Rights of the persons concerned
If personal data relating to you as a natural person is used, you are entitled to various data protection claims against us. In accordance with § 34 BDSG, Art. 15 EU-GDPR, you have the right of access to information about your personal data stored and its origin, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom data are passed on, and the purpose of storage.


In addition, you are entitled to have your personal data corrected, deleted or restricted (processed) in accordance with § 35 BDSG, Art. 16 – 18 GDPR. In addition, pursuant to Art. 20 of the GDPR, you may request the transfer of the data to another responsible body. In addition, you can object to the further processing of your data if we process your data on the basis of a legitimate interest (Art. 6 I 1 f GDPR). As far as we do not process your data for advertising purposes, this requires a reason, which results from your special situation. In the event of an objection, we will no longer process your personal data as soon as we receive it during the subsequent check and – in the event of a justified objection – delete it after completion of the check (§ 36 BDSG, Art. 21 EU-GDPR).


You can revoke your consent to data processing (Art. 6 I 1 a EU-GDPR) at any time; we will then not process your personal data further unless we have legal permission to do so.
An objection or revocation does not affect the permissibility of data processing in the past.
We fulfil the rights to which you are entitled immediately and free of charge. Please contact us or our data protection officer; you will find our contact details at the beginning of this privacy policy.
Finally, under Article 77 of the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority.
