Data protection declaration
Our enterprise takes the protection of personalised data very serious. We want you to know when we save what data and how we use it. When using and processing personalised data, we act in line with the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and the new German Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA).

- Browser type and version
- Operating system and version
- Referrer URL (name of the forwarding website, e.g., google.de)

These protocol files and edited user statistics are made available to us by our web host. This data is not personalised; thus, we cannot retrace what user has retrieved what data. No forwarding to third parties or compiling with other data is undertaken. We would like you to note that any data transfer on the Internet (e.g., when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. No gapless protection of data is possible to protect data from being accessed by third parties.
In individual cases, we require personalised data for certain offers and services. The data provided by you in such case, e.g., by e-mail, is disclosed to us on a voluntary basis and is used by us only for the purpose desired by you, e.g., for making contact. It is not disclosed to third parties.
The rights of parties concerned
Pursuant to Art. 15 et seq. GDPR, affected parties of the right of information, correction, deletion, restriction or objection regarding the use and processing of their data. Moreover, parties concerned pursuant to Art. 13 para. 2 item c GDPR have the right to revoke their consent to the use or processing of personalised data for the future, if such processing rests on Art. 6 para. 1 a or Art. 9 para. 2 a GDPR. The legitimacy of the processing due to the approval up to the revocation shall not be affected thereby. As a rule, however, any such revocation results in the consequence that the purpose for which the data had been raised, cannot be fulfilled. The legal effectiveness of such right requires the written form. For that purpose, please contact us by e-mail to:

Deletion of personalised data
Personalised data is deleted if the purpose for saving it is dismissed and no legal requirement (e.g., legal retention periods) prescribes to maintain such data. The provisions of Art. 17 GDPR in conjunction with Section 35 FDPA apply. Should any deletion due to legal, contractual or trade or tax-law-relevant reasons render impossible, the use of such data can be restricted on request by the party concerned. The legal effectiveness of such right requires the written form.
