Legal information and notes on data protection
Thank you for visiting our website. We take data protection very seriously and strive to protect your personal data within the scope of our website offering.
By personal data we understand all data about the personal and factual circumstances of a natural person. Personal data collected on our website is used exclusively for our own purposes.
1.2. Legal basis of data processing
Consent: Insofar as we have obtained your consent for processing operations of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) is the legal basis for data processing.
Contract: When processing personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, Article 6(1) lit. b DSGVO is the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Legal obligation: Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of you or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1) lit. d DSGVO is the legal basis.

The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities.

b) the categories of personal data processed;
c) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organizations;

If personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organization, you have the right to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.
We will provide you with a copy of the personal data that is the subject of the processing. For any additional copies you request, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs. If you make the request for information electronically, we must provide the information in a common electronic format unless you specify otherwise.
The right to receive a copy must not interfere with the rights and freedoms of other persons.
Right to rectification
You also have the right to request that inaccurate personal data concerning you be corrected without delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary declaration.

a) The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
b) you revoke your consent on which the processing is based pursuant to Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO or Article 9(2)(a) and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

This does not apply insofar as the processing is necessary a) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information; b) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which we are subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us; (c) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9(2) and Article 9(3); (d) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes as referred to in Article 89(1), where the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or e) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to restriction of processing
(1) The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:

b) the processing is unlawful and the data subject refuses the erasure of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data;

(d) the data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) as long as it is not yet established whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
(Where processing has been restricted in accordance with paragraph 1, those personal data may be processed, except for storage, only with the consent of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defense 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 of a Member State. 4.5.2016 L 119/44 Official Journal of the European Union EN

Article 19 Notification obligation in connection with rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing The controller shall notify all recipients to whom personal data have been disclosed of any rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing pursuant to Article 16, Article 17(1) and Article 18, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. The data controller shall inform the data subject about these recipients if the data subject so requests.
Article 20 Right to data portability
(1)The data subject shall have the right to obtain the personal data concerning him or her which he or she has provided to a controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and shall have the right to transmit such data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that

(4) The right referred to in paragraph 2 of this Article shall not interfere with the rights and freedoms of other persons.
You also have the right to consult our data protection officer regarding the aforementioned rights as well as on all issues related to the processing of your personal data.

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 Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f; this also applies to profiling based on this provision. The controller shall then no longer process the personal data unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
2) 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, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
3) If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
4) in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
