1. General notes and mandatory information
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains which data we collect and for what purpose we use them. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
Tel.: 0211 30212300
The responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are possible only with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Section 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Section 6, Subpara. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation at any time; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you file an objection, we will no longer process the personal data in question unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or unless the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims (objection according to Section 21, Subpara. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, 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 in so far as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection according to Section 21, Subpara. 2 GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the affected persons have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, workplace or place of presumed infringement. The right of appeal shall be without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract turned 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 responsible person, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as e.g. orders or requests that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line 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, blocking, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the site notice for this and other questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to limitation of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the site notice. The right to limit the processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data has taken place unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have filed an objection in accordance with Section 21, Subpara. 1 GDPR, your interests must be weighed against ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests outweigh the other’s, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may not be processed – apart from their storage – without your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
2. Data collection on our website
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called „session cookies“. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Cookies, which are necessary for the execution of the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Section 6, Subpara. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, we will save your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on these data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Section 6, Subpara. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request to have it deleted, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
