1. Scope of the processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the responsible party is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

IX. Integration of third party services and content

It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated on our website. This always requires that the providers of this content are aware of your IP address, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to your browser. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. We endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content.

Within the website, YouTube videos of the third-party provider Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, are used in particular. The privacy policy of Google, Inc. can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, opt-out options for Google’s data use can be found at: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/.

This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.

To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. The information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.

The data processing is carried out regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website.

Where the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – 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 substantial public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the responsible person before the restriction is lifted.


4. right to erasure
a) Obligation to delete
You may request the responsible party to erase the personal data concerning you without undue delay, and the responsible party is obliged to erase such data without undue delay, if one of the following reasons applies:

  • (1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

  • (2) the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one responsible party to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons. The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the person responsible.

7. right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

8. right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

9. Automated decision-making in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

  • (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the responsible person,
  • (2) is permissible on the basis of legal provisions of the Union or the Member States to which the responsible person is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests; or
  • (3) is made with your express consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.


With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible person shall take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible person, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

10. right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
