4. Data collection on our website
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Cookies which are necessary for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions requested by you are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- browser type and browser version
- used operating system
- referrer URL
- hostname of the accessing computer
- time of the server request
- IP address
This data will not be merged with other data sources.
Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data to provide the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended.
Possibility of opposition and removal
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.
Contact form and e-mail contact
Description and scope of data processing
A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for electronic contact. If a user makes use of this possibility, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. These data are your name and your e-mail address. At the time the message is sent, the date and time are also registered.
Your consent will be obtained for the processing of the data during the sending process and reference will be made to this data protection declaration.
Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.
In this context, the data may be passed on to other Group companies. The data will be used exclusively for the processing of the conversation.
Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
Purpose of data processing
The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us exclusively for the processing of the establishment of contact. If you contact us by e-mail, this is also the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.
The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been conclusively clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
Possibility of opposition and removal
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail at , he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you entered there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
5. Plugins and tools
Use of social plugins
Our website uses social plug-ins ("plug-ins") from various social networks such as Facebook.com and linkedIn.com. The purpose of these plug-ins is to provide you with an opportunity to interact with your contacts and to easily disseminate interesting information. These plug-ins can be recognized by the respective logo in the network. We use a 2-click solution, so that no data transfer takes place when simply visiting the website. Only when you click on such a plug-in does your browser establish a direct connection with the servers of the respective network. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly through the network to your browser and integrated into the website by it. If these networks are located outside the EU/EEA, we cannot therefore exclude the possibility that your data may be transferred to a server outside the EU/EEA and processed there. We have no influence on the scope or the period of use of the data that the respective network collects with the help of this plug-in and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: By integrating the plug-in, the respective network receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to one of the networks, this network can assign this information to your profile. If you do not want the network to collect information about your visit to our website, you must therefore log out beforehand. However, there is always the possibility that the network may find out your IP address and save it even though you have not registered or logged in there. We also do not have any information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider. The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for users who are not logged in) in order to display demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles by the service providers. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The purpose, duration and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of your data as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information of the respective social networks:
Google Web Fonts
This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that your IP address has been used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
This page uses the Google Maps map service via an API. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This serves the purpose of showing you interactive maps directly on the website, making it easy for you to find the places we have indicated on the website and enabling you to conveniently use the map function. This application is accessed directly from Google's servers, so that the company receives the IP address currently assigned to you. When you visit the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. Whether and to what extent or over what period the IP address is stored by Google and used internally is beyond our knowledge. The legal basis for the integration of this service is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, Google may still use your IP address and store it for profile purposes. Google stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of your website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) to display demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles on Google. We draw your attention to the fact that data processing by Google may take place outside the EU/EEA. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. Further information on data protection at Google can be found at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This 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 transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy retrievability of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

In the event of such processing, you may request the following information from the data controller:
- the purposes for which the personal data will be processed;
- the categories of personal data processed;

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with the transfer.
2. Right to rectification
You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed by the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The data controller must carry out the rectification immediately.
3. The right to limit the processing
Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted:
- if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time which allows the data controller to verify
the accuracy of the personal data;

whether the justified reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.
Where the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may not be processed, with the exception of their storage, without your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If the processing restriction has been limited in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
4. Right to cancellation
(a) Duty to delete
You may request the data controller to delete the personal data concerning you immediately and the data controller is obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
- The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise
- You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO and

The right to deletion does not exist insofar as processing is necessary:
- on the exercise of freedom of expression and information;
- to fulfil a legal obligation which processing is subject to under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the
controller is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the
- for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO;
- for archival purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art.

attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
5. Right to information
If you have exercised your right to rectify, cancel or limit the processing of your personal data against the controller, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of such rectification, cancellation or limitation, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed of such recipients by the data controller.
6. Right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the responsible person in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another data controller without being hindered by the data controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data relating to you transferred directly by one responsible party to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data transfer does not apply to the 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 controller.
7. Right of objection
You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The person responsible will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.
You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection through automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of Information Society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
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 your consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until you revoke it.
9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision
- is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
- is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and contains
adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
- with your explicit consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data under Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO 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 person responsible shall take appropriate measures to protect 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 person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.
10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the DSGVO.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint was lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 DSGVO.
