General Information on the Legal Bases for Data Processing on this Website

If you have given your consent to data processing, we will process your personal data based on Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR if special categories of data are processed according to Art. 9(1) GDPR. In the case of explicit consent for the transfer of personal data to third countries, data processing is also based on Art. 49(1)(a) GDPR.

The relevant legal bases for each specific case are provided in the following paragraphs of this privacy policy.

Recipient of Personal Data

In the course of our business activities, we collaborate with various external entities. In some cases, the transmission of personal data to these external entities is necessary. We only disclose personal data to external entities when it is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract, when we are legally obligated to do so (e.g., sharing data with tax authorities), when we have a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR in the disclosure, or when another legal basis permits the data transfer. When using data processors, we only disclose personal data of our customers based on a valid contract for data processing. In the case of joint processing, a contract for joint processing is concluded.

Revocation of Your Consent for Data Processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent already given at any time. The legality of data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to Object to Data Collection in Special Cases and to Direct Marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing is based on Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis for each processing is indicated in this privacy statement. If you object, we will no longer process your affected personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims (objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR).

Right to Lodge a Complaint with the Supervisory Authority

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, especially in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to Data Portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed 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 controller, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

Information, Correction, and Deletion

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as, if applicable, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding 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. You can exercise this right by contacting 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 with us, we usually need time to verify this. During the verification period, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If the processing of your personal data has been or is being carried out unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.

If we no longer need your personal data but you require it for the exercise, defense, or establishment of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.

If you have objected pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

Once you have restricted the processing of your personal data, except for storage, these data may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

SSL/TLS Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL/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. When SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Social Media

Social Media Elements with Shariff

This website uses elements from social media platforms (e.g., Facebook, X, Instagram, Pinterest, XING, LinkedIn, Tumblr). Social media elements are usually identifiable by the respective social media logos. To ensure data protection on this website, we only use these elements in conjunction with the so-called “Shariff” solution. This application prevents the social media elements integrated on this website from transmitting your personal data to the respective provider as soon as you enter the site. Only when you activate the respective social media element by clicking the associated button is a direct connection to the provider’s server established (consent). Once you activate the social media element, the respective provider is informed that you have visited this website with your IP address. If you are simultaneously logged into your respective social media account (e.g., Facebook), the provider can assign the visit to this website to your user account. Activating the plugin constitutes consent within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. The use of the service is to obtain the legally required consents for the use of certain technologies. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR.


This website incorporates functions of the Instagram service provided by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. When the social media element is active, a direct connection is established between your device and the Instagram server. Instagram thereby receives information about your visit to this website. If you are logged into your Instagram account, you can link the content of this website to your Instagram profile by clicking the Instagram button. Instagram can thus associate the visit to this website with your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram. If consent (consent) has been obtained, the service is used on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time. If no consent has been obtained, the use of the service is based on our legitimate interest in the most comprehensive visibility in social media. Insofar as personal data is collected and transmitted to Facebook or Instagram using the tool described here, we and Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland are jointly responsible for this data processing (Art. 26 GDPR). The joint responsibility is limited exclusively to the collection of data and its transmission to Facebook or Instagram. The processing carried out by Facebook or Instagram after transmission is not part of joint responsibility. The obligations jointly incumbent on us have been recorded in an agreement on joint processing. The wording of the agreement can be found at: Link to the Agreement. According to this agreement, we are responsible for providing data protection information when using the Facebook or Instagram tool and for the data protection-compliant implementation of the tool on our website. Facebook is responsible for the data security of the Facebook or Instagram products. Data subjects’ rights (e.g., requests for information) regarding the data processed by Facebook or Instagram can be asserted directly against Facebook. If data subjects’ rights are asserted against us, we are obliged to forward them to Facebook. The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: Facebook Data Transfer, Instagram Privacy Policy, and Facebook Information. Further information can be found in Instagram’s privacy policy: Instagram Privacy Policy. The company is certified under the “EU-US Data Privacy Framework” (DPF). The DPF is an agreement between the European Union and the USA aimed at ensuring compliance with European data protection standards for data processing in the USA. Each company certified under the DPF undertakes to comply with these data protection standards.
