Personal data
Personal data is information about an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes all information about your identity, such as your name, email address or postal address. However, information that cannot be associated with your identity (for example, statistical information, such as the number of online users) is not considered personal information.

You can use our website without disclosing your identity and without providing personal data. We will then only collect general information about your visit to our website. For some of the services offered, however, personal data is collected from you. This data will then only be processed by us for the purposes intended, in particular for providing the desired information.

Processing of personal information
Access to your data is only permitted for a limited number of authorised persons. They are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial support of the servers. Despite regular checks, however, complete protection against all risks is not possible.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties
We will not pass on your data to third parties without your consent. Your personal data will only be disclosed if you have actively consented to the transfer of your data or if we are entitled or obliged to do so by law and/or official court orders. In particular, this may involve providing information for law enforcement, security purposes or the enforcement of intellectual property rights.

Data deletion and storage time
We always delete your personal data when the reason for storing the data is no longer applicable. However, data may also be stored if this is provided for by legal requirements to which we are subject, for example with regard to statutory storage and documentation obligations. In such cases, we will delete your personal data at the end of the corresponding provisions.

Your rights and contact

For questions related to our handling of personal data or further information on data privacy issues, please contact our internal data protection officer (DPO):


Rights of persons concerned
You have rights regarding the processing of your personal data. First of all, you have a right to the stored information and can, if necessary, request the correction and/or deletion or blocking of your personal data. You may also request a limitation of processing and have a right of objection. You also have a right to data transferability with regard to the personal data you have provided us with.

If you wish to assert any of your rights and/or request further information, please contact our data protection officer.

Revocation of consent and objection
Once consent has been given, it can be freely revoked at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until such time as it is revoked.

If the processing of your personal data is not based on consent, but on another legal basis, you can object to this data processing. Your objection will lead to a review, and, if necessary, termination of data processing. You will be informed of the results of the review and – if data processing is nevertheless to be continued – we will provide you with more detailed information as to why the data processing is permissible.

If you believe that we are not processing your personal data in accordance with this data privacy statement or the applicable data protection regulations, you have a right of appeal to a regulatory authority. You can also lodge a complaint with our data protection officer. The data protection officer will then examine the matter and inform you of the result of the examination.
