General information on data processing
1. Extent of processing of personal data
We only process the personal data of our users insofar as it is necessary to ensure the functions of the
website or our content and services. We only process the personal data of our users after they have given
their consent. Data may be collected in exceptional cases in which prior consent is not possible for
practical reasons or the data processing is permitted by legal regulations.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we receive a data subject’s consent for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR
serves as the legal basis.
For the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract concluded with
the data subject, this is done as pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR. This also applies to data processing
operations that are necessary prior to entering into a contract.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is
subject, this is done in accordance with Article 6 (1) lit. c) GDPR.
In the event that the processing of personal data is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data
subject or of another natural person, Article 6 (1) lit. d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is required for the purposes of legitimate interests on the part of our company or a third
party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former’s
interests, this is carried out according to Article 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.
3. Erasure of data and retention duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the intended purpose of the
processing is no longer valid. In addition, data may be stored if the processing of said data is provided for
by European or German legislation or by regulations, laws or other directives that are compatible with the
rules of the European Union. A blocking or erasure of data is also carried out when a retention deadline
prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless the further storage of the data is required for
the conclusion or the performance of a contract.
Provision of the Website and creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data process
Each time our Website is accessed, our system automatically records data and information from the
system of the computer that accesses the site.
The following data are collected:
(1) Information on the type and version of the browser being used
(2) The user’s operating system
(3) The user’s IP address
(4) Time and date of retrieval
(5) The user’s internet service provider
2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address on the system is necessary to ensure the delivery of the site to
the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the
session.
The data are stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data also serve
to ensure the security of our IT systems. The data are not analyzed for marketing purposes.
The purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing as pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit. f)
GDPR.
4. Duration of storage
The data will be deleted when they are no longer necessary for the intended purpose for which they have
been collected. In the event that data are collected for the provision of the Website, they are deleted as
soon as the session is completed.
In the event that data are stored in log files, they are deleted no later than seven days afterwards. The
data may be stored for a longer time. In this case, the user’s IP addresses are deleted or modified so that
the client retrieving the Website can not be identified.
5. Options for objection and removal
Data must be collected to ensure the functioning of the site and they must be stored in log files for the
operation of the website. Consequently, the user is not granted a right to object in this case.
Usage of cookies
1. Description and scope of data processing
Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are placed in or by the internet browser on the user’s
computer system. If a user accesses a site, a cookie may be placed on the user’s operating system. This
cookie contains a characteristic string that allows for the clear identification of the browser for any
subsequent visits to the Website.
We place cookies to ensure our site is user-friendly. Some elements of our website call for the browser to
be identified even after switching pages.
2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of personal data with the use of cookies is Article 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processing
The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for the user. Some
features of our Website cannot be used without the placement of cookies. For this, it is necessary for the
browser to be recognized even after switching pages.
We require cookies for the following applications:
(1) Website analysis
The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.
Analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our Website and its contents. These
cookies enable us to learn how the site is used and to constantly optimize our service.
The analysis cookies can recognize an internet browser. However, user profiles are not associated with
data of the bearer of the pseudonym without their express consent. In particular, IP addresses are
anonymized immediately after they are collected, which makes it impossible to associate user profiles
with IP addresses.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data as pursuant to
Article 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.
4. Duration of storage, options for objection and removal
Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted from the computer to our Website. Therefore,
you as a user have full control of the placement of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet
browser, you can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies. Previously placed cookies can be deleted
at any time. This can be also done automatically. If cookies are disabled for our Website, potentially not
all features of the Website may be used fully.

Rights of the data subject
As soon are your personal data are processed, you assume the role of the data subject as pursuant to
GDPR and are therefore granted the following rights vis-à-vis the data controller:

concerning you are being processed by us.
If this is the case, you may request access to the following information from the controller:

(2) The categories of personal data concerned;
(3) The recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in
particular recipients in third countries or international organizations;
(4) The envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if this is not possible, the criteria
used to determine that period;
(5) The existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data or
restriction of processing of personal data concerning you or to object to such processing;
(6) The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
(7) Where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their
source;
(8) The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22 (1) and (4)
GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the
significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.
You are also entitled to the right to request information on whether your personal data are transferred to
a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you have the right to be informed of
the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR relating to the transfer.
2. Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller insofar as the processed
personal data concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The controller must make the correction without
undue delay.
3. Right to restriction of processing
U You may request the restriction of processing of personal data concerning you under the following
conditions:
(1) You have contested the accuracy of the personal data for a period enabling the controller to verify the
accuracy of the personal data;
(2) The processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction
of their use instead;

the legitimate grounds of the controller override yours.
Where processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data shall, with the
exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of
legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of
important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
Where the restriction of processing is carried out pursuant to the aforementioned conditions, you will be
informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.
4. Right to erasure
a) Duty to delete
You may request the controller to have personal data concerning you deleted without undue delay, and
the controller is required to delete these data without undue delay, unless one of the following reasons
applies:
(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer required for the purposes for which they were
collected or processed.
(2) You revoke your consent to data processing based on Article 6 (1) lit. a) or Article 9 (2) lit. a) GDPR and
there is no other legal basis for the data processing.
(3) You object to the processing as pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate
grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing as pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR.
(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
(5) The erasure of personal data concerning you is required to fulfil a legal obligation based on laws of the
European Union or of a Member State to which the controller is subject.
(6) The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to services offered by the
information society as pursuant to Article 8 (1) GDPR.
b) Information transferred to third parties
If the controller makes the personal data concerning you available to the public and he is obliged to erase
the data as pursuant to Article 17 (1) GDPR, he must take appropriate measures, taking into account the
available technology and the cost of their implementation and technical nature, to inform the data
processing controller who processes the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the
erasure of all links to these personal data or copies or replication of such personal data.
c) Exceptions
The right to erasure does not apply insofar as the processing is required
(1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) to fulfil a legal obligation that requires processing according to the laws of the European Union or its
Member States to which the controller is subject, or the processing is necessary for the performance of a
task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
(3) based on considerations of the public interest in the field of public health as pursuant to Article 9 (2)
lit. h) and i) as well as Article 9 (3) GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical
purposes as pursuant to Article 89 (1) GDPR insofar as the right listed under a) is expected to render
impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of this processing, or
(5) for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
5. Right to be informed
If you have asserted your right to rectification, erasure or restriction pertaining to the data processing visà-vis the controller, he is thus obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data have been
disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or the limitation of the processing, unless this proves
to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You are entitled to the right to be informed by the controller about these recipients.
6. Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to a controller,
in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Moreover, you also have the right to
transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal
data have been provided insofar as
(1) the processing is based on a granted consent as pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR or Article 9 (2) lit.
a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted
directly from one controller to another, wherever technically feasible. This may not adversely affect the
rights and freedoms of others.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data if it is required for the
performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the
controller.
7. Right to object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of
personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6 (1) lit. e) or f), including profiling based on those
provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless he demonstrates compelling legitimate
grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the assertion,
exercise or defense of legal claims.
Wherever personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right
to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes
profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you may no longer
be processed for such purposes.
Within the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you
may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
8. Right to revoke consent to data processing
You have the right to revoke your consent to data processing at any time. Upon revoking consent, the
legality of the data processing carried out on the basis of the consent will not be affected by the
revocation of consent.
9. Automated decision-making, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision that is based solely on an automated processing of data,
including profiling, and that may have a legal effect on you or any similarly significant restrictive effect.
This does not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or the performance of a contract between you and the controller,
(2) is permissible on the basis of legislation of the European Union or its Member States to which the
controller is subject and these laws contain adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as
well as your legitimate interests, or
(3) is made with your explicit consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data as pursuant to Article 9
(1) GDPR, insofar as Article 9 (2) lit. a) or g) GDPR do not apply and appropriate measures for the
protection of your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests have been taken.
Regarding the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller must take appropriate measures to safeguard
your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, which must include at least the right to
obtaining the intervention of a person on the behalf of the controller, the right to present one’s own
position and the right to contest the decision.
10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Notwithstanding any other administrative or judicial remedies, you also have the right to lodge a
complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside or work or
where the alleged violation takes place if you believe that the processing of your personal data is in
violation of GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint is submitted informs the complainant on the status and
the results of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy as pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.
