3. General notes and obligatory information
The operators of these pages are profoundly serious about the protection of your personal data. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection notice.
When you use this website, various personal data are collected.
Personal data is data that could be used to identify you personally. This privacy notice explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g., when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

The responsible party is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail addresses or similar).
Unless a more specific storage period has been specified within this privacy notice, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for processing the data no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law are integrated on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US 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. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g., intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in unusual cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 DSGVO).
If the data processingis carried out on the basis of art. 6 Abs. 1 Lit. e or f dsgvo, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your situation; 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 notice. if you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising, or defending legal claims (objection under article 21 (1) DSGVO).
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 personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling as far as it is related to such direct marketing. if you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to article 21 (2) DSGVO).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests 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 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, deletion, and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions about personal data, you can contact us at any time.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, 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 stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of the deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. If 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, this data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

5. Analysis tools and advertising
Matomo (formerly Piwik)
This website uses the open-source web analytics service Matomo. Matomo uses technologies that enable the cross-page recognition of the user for the analysis of user behavior (e.g., cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Matomo about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymized before storage.
With the help of Matomo, we can collect and analyze data about the use of our website-by-website visitors. This allows us to find out, among other things, when which page views were made and from which region they come. We also collect various log files (e.g., IP address, referrer, browsers, and operating systems used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g., clicks, purchases, etc.).
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising. As far as a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g., consent to store cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
When analyzing with Matomo, we use IP anonymization. In this case, your IP address is shortened before analysis so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you.
We host Matomo exclusive on our own servers, so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.
Our websites integrate tracking by the technology and service provider Outbrain (Outbrain Inc., 222 Broadway 19th Floor, New York, NY 10038) based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO.

However, we will take the possible measures which are necessary under data protection law in accordance with Art. 44 et seq. EU-DS-GVO to establish the level of data protection in the third country.
