When you use this website, various personal data is collected.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect the data from access by third parties.

Note on data transfer to the USA
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA are integrated into our website. When these tools are active, your personal information may be shared with the respective companies’ U.S. servers. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. U.S. companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you, as the data subject, being able to take legal action against this.
Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) process, evaluate and permanently store your data on U.S. servers for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases as well as to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH ADVERTISING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 PARA. 2 GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of a breach of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to 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 fulfilment 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 controller, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing at any time and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time if you have any further questions about personal data.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
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 held by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the audit, 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 erasure.
- If you lodge an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck 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.
- If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may only be processed – apart from their storage – with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence 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.

YouTube with Enhanced Privacy
This website embeds videos from YouTube. The website is operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. On the other hand, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. Here’s how YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network, regardless of whether you’re watching a video.
As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. In doing so, the YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube may store various cookies on your device after starting a video or use comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts.
If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offerings.
This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
This site uses Font Awesome for the consistent display of fonts and symbols. The provider is Fonticons, Inc., 6 Porter Road Apartment 3R, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
When you open a page, your browser loads the required fonts into its browser cache in order to display text, fonts and symbols correctly. To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Font Awesome’s servers. As a result, Font Awesome becomes aware that this website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Font Awesome is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the typeface on our website. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
If your browser does not support Font Awesome, your computer will use a default font.
This site uses the map service Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
In order to use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
