With the following information, we would like to give you as a "data subject" an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under the data protection laws. In principle, it is possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you want to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.
The processing of personal data, for example your name, address or email address, is always in accordance with the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.
As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or by post.

The responsible person within the meaning of the DS-GVO is:

The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance Maker when enacting the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
- Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
- Person concerned
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (our company).
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
- Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed indication of the data subject's wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
V. Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c DS-GVO.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DS-GVO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
- SSL/TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact enquiries that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser contains a "https://" instead of a "http://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.
- Data collection when visiting the website
When you use our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a series of general data and information each time you or an automated system access a page. This general data and information is stored in the server log files.
The following can be recorded:
- the browser types and versions used,
- the operating system used by the accessing system,
- the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
- the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
- the date and time of access to the website,
- an Internet Protocol Address (IP address)
- the Internet service provider of the accessing system.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is required in order to:
- to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
- to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
- to ensure the permanent operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
- to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
Therefore, the data and information collected will be used by us for statistical purposes only and for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.
- Handling of visitor data
We process your data, some of which is personal, to check access authorisation. We store the following data:
- Visitor contact information (title, surname, first name, date of birth, place of birth, e-mail address)
- Data on the visit (location, building, date, time)
a) Legal basis of the processing activity
The processing is necessary for regulated access control and serves our legitimate interest in doing so pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO and no interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are overridden.
b) Categories of recipients
Internal recipients are the reception.
c) Duration of storage
Your personal data will be stored for a period of 1 year from your last visit.
- Encrypted payment transactions
If, after the conclusion of a contract with costs, there is an obligation to provide us with your payment data (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorisation), this data is required for the processing of payments.
Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognise 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.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.
VII Transmission of data to third parties
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
We will only share your personal information with third parties if:
- You have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO,
- The disclosure is permissible under Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not having your data disclosed,
- In the event that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO, as well as
- This is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
- Data processing in third countries
If we process data in a third country outside the EU or the European Economic Area (EEA) or the processing takes place in the context of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this is only done in accordance with the legal requirements, in particular Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO.
- General information about cookies
Information is stored in the cookie that arises in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity.
In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.
