Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance Maker when adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). We would like to explain essential terms in the following:

a) Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). 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.

b) Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

c) Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

(e) profiling means any 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 analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.

f) Pseudonymization means 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 organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

(g) Controller or controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

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.

j) 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 who are authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

k) Consent shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject's wishes for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a statement or any other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.


II. data subject rights according to Art. 15 ff and Art. 77 DSGVO


1. right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If the data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) e) or f) DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this privacy policy.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

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 associated with such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising.


2. revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. We obtain this from you before the start of the data processing that requires your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time. Insofar as a revocation option does not already arise via the clicking of links or the adjustment of browser settings, an informal communication to us by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.


3. right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of data protection law, data subjects have a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company has its headquarters. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found in the following link:

The data protection authority responsible for us is:

Saxon Data Protection Commissioner

01330 Dresden


4. right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to another person responsible, in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.


5. information, correction, blocking, deletion

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given above in Section I.2.


III. data processing during informational use of the website, technical background, cookies etc.

We collect and process the personal data listed below in sections 3 to 7 for the purposes stated therein, on the basis of the legal grounds stated therein and for the duration stated therein.


1. legal basis and storage period

If you have consented to the processing of your personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 1 DSGVO by us, Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. The processing of personal data, which we need to fulfill contractual or pre-contractual obligations, is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. If the processing is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests or those of a third party and the interests, fundamental freedoms and fundamental rights of the data subject do not override these, then Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO serves us as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. For the processing operations carried out by us, we indicate below the applicable legal basis in each case. Processing may also be based on several legal bases.

For the processing operations carried out by us, we indicate below in each case how long the data will be stored by us and when it will be deleted or blocked. If no explicit storage period is specified below, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose or legal basis for the storage no longer applies.

However, storage may take place beyond the specified time in the event of a (threatened) legal dispute with you or other legal proceedings or if storage is provided for by statutory provisions to which we are subject as the responsible party (e.g. § 257 HGB, § 147 AO). If the storage period prescribed by the legal regulations expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted unless further storage by us is necessary and there is a legal basis for this.


2. data security

We use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing, as well as the existing risks of a data breach (including its probability and impact) for the data subject. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

We will be happy to provide you with more detailed information on request. Please contact our data protection officer (see above).
