We are pleased that you are visiting our website. Your privacy and the associated protection of your personal data are important to us. For this reason, our business activities take place in compliance with the applicable legal provisions pertaining to data protection and data security (especially the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the new version of the Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA-new)). We are very keen that you should feel secure with us. For this reason, we and our data protection officer ensure that the legal data protection requirements are observed.

We are aware of the importance of the data that you have entrusted to us and would like to inform you below about the following:

  • For what purposes your (personal) data are collected, processed and used,
  • How we deal with and protect your data,
  • To whom we make the data available and
  • How you can exercise your rights.

Please read the explanations given below carefully. If you have questions, you can contact our data protection officer. His contact information is found further below in this Data Privacy Statement.

1. Definitions

Data protection is a complex subject. In order to make it easier for you to understand a few basic meanings of this Data Privacy Statement, we have put them together for you.

Within the meaning of Art. 28 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), “contract processing” (in short: CP) is understood to be, in a simplified way, a service in which a service provider (contract processor acc. to the GDPR) is commissioned to collect, process and/or use personal data according to instructions. The service provider processes the personal data exclusively according to our instructions and acquires no ownership or own interest of your data. Before a carefully selected service provider is commissioned to do this, we enter into a special contract with him and take further measures to ensure that your personal data are protected.

Cookies” are small text files stored in your terminal device (e.g. computer or smartphone) which store the specific settings and data in exchange with our system through your browser. Typically, a cookie contains the name of the visited website from which the cookie data were sent, information about the age of the cookies and an alphanumeric tag. Cookies allow the systems to recognize the user’s device and make possible defaults immediately available.

Third party is any natural person or legal entity or authority, other than the affected person, the responsible party, the contract processor and the persons who are authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the responsible party or contract processor, see Art. 4 No. 10 of the GDPR. Therefore, this is not, for example, about a third party when personal data are given to a service provider as part of contract processing in acc. with Art. 28 of the GDPR or formerly Section 11 of the FDPA.

IP addresses are numerical sequences which can be allocated to the individual IT devices or to a group. Similar to mailing addresses, the IP serves to allocate data to the right recipient.

Personal data” are understood to be all information that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person, especially name and surname, date of birth, e-mail address, residential address as well as bank and payment information, as well as health information, see Art. 4 No. 1 of theGDPR (individual information about a certain or identifiable natural person formerly in acc. with Section 3 Para. 1 of the FDPA).

Responsible party” in acc. with Art. 4 No. 7of the GDPR (formerly “responsible authority” acc. to Section 3 Para. 7 of theFDPA) is any person or authority (here the website operator) that decides the purpose and means of the processing of personal data, either alone or together with others.

10. Involvement of third-party services and contents

General information

It can happen that within these online offers, third-party contents such as YouTube videos and map material from Google Maps or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter called "third-party providers") use the IP address of the users – because without it, they could generally not send the contents to the browser of the respective user. Thus, the IP address is necessary for displaying these contents. We strive to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address merely to deliver the contents, but have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. If this is known to us, we inform users about this.

Google Maps

This webpage uses the map service Google Maps through an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

To use the functions of Google Maps it is necessary to store your IP address. As a rule, this information is transmitted to a Google server in the USA to be stored there. The provider of this webpage has no influence on this data transmission.

Google Maps are used in the interest of an attractive display of our online offers and an easy finding of the places indicated on the website. This represents a justified interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f of the GDPR.

For more information on the handling of user data, consult Google’s Data Privacy Statement in: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

YouTube

This webpage integrates videos through provider YouTube, YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. As part of the integration and provision of the service, it may be technically necessary to transmit technical and personally identifiable data (such as your IP address and other information) to the service provider.  

YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive display of our online offers. This represents a justified interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f of the GDPR.

Google Web Fonts

On our webpage, we use so-called Web Fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When our pages are called up, the needed Web Fonts are loaded into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers so Google knows that your website was called up through your IP address. The usage of Google Web Fonts takes place in the interest of a uniform and attractive display of our online offers. This represents a justified interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f of the GDPR.

If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font from your computer is used.
