In accordance with Article 13 of the GDPR, we inform you of the legal bases for our data processing activities. For users within the scope of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), i.e. the EU and the EEA, the following applies unless the legal basis is stated in the privacy policy:

The legal basis for obtaining consent is Article 6(1)(a) and Article 7 of the GDPR; The legal basis for processing data to fulfill our services and perform contractual measures and respond to inquiries is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR; The legal basis for processing data to fulfill our legal obligations is Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR; Where processing of personal data is necessary for the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Article 6(1)(d) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. The legal basis for necessary processing for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller is Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR. The legal basis for processing data to protect our legitimate interests is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The processing of data for purposes other than those for which the data was collected is determined in accordance with Article 6(4) of the GDPR. The processing of special categories of data (as per Article 9(1) of the GDPR) is determined in accordance with Article 9(2) of the GDPR.


In accordance with legal requirements and taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs, the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the varying likelihood and severity of the risk for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk.

These measures include in particular ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data as well as access, input, disclosure, availability and separation of the data. Furthermore, we have established procedures that ensure the exercise of data subject rights, data deletion and response to data risks. We also take into account the protection of personal data during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection by design and by default.


If we disclose, transfer or otherwise grant access to data to other persons and companies (data processors, joint controllers or third parties) in the course of our processing activities, this is done only on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. if a transfer of data to third parties, such as payment service providers, is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract), if users have given their consent, if a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. in the case of the use of agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we disclose, transfer or otherwise grant access to data to other companies within our corporate group, this is done in particular for administrative purposes as a legitimate interest and furthermore on a basis that complies with legal requirements.


If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or the Swiss Confederation) or this happens as part of the use of third-party services or disclosure, or transmission of data to other persons or companies, this only happens if it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual obligations, based on your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation, or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we only process or have the data processed in a third country if the legal requirements are met. This means, for example, that processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of an EU-level of data protection (e.g. for the USA through the "Privacy Shield") or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations.


You have the right to request confirmation as to whether or not data concerning you are being processed, and on information about this data, as well as on further information and a copy of the data according to the legal requirements.

"Cookies" are small files that are stored on users' computers. Different information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie primarily serves to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after their visit within an online offer. Cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes their browser are called temporary cookies, session cookies or transient cookies. Such a cookie can, for example, store the contents of a shopping cart in an online store or a login status. Cookies that remain stored even after the browser is closed are called "permanent" or "persistent". For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it again after several days. Similarly, the interests of users can be stored in such a cookie, which can be used for measuring reach or marketing purposes. Cookies offered by other providers than the controller who operates the online offer are called "third-party cookies" (otherwise, if they are only its cookies, they are referred to as "first-party cookies").

We can use temporary and permanent cookies and inform users about this in our privacy policy.

If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.

A general objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes, especially for tracking, can be declared for a large number of services through the US American site or the EU site Furthermore, the storage of cookies can be achieved by deactivating them in the browser settings. Please note that not all functions of this online offer may be available if cookies are deactivated.


The data processed by us will be deleted or restricted in their processing in accordance with legal requirements. Unless expressly stated in this privacy policy, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and there are no legal retention obligations preventing their deletion.

If the data is not deleted because it is required for other legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for commercial or tax reasons.


We ask that you regularly inform yourself about the content of our privacy policy. We update the privacy policy as soon as changes to the data processing we carry out require it. We will inform you as soon as any changes require action on your part (e.g. consent) or any other individual notification.

Online presence in social media

We maintain an online presence within social networks and platforms to communicate with active customers, interested parties, and users and to inform them about our services.

We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This may pose risks for users, as, for example, the enforcement of users' rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they commit to complying with EU data protection standards.

Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage behavior and resulting interests of users can be used to create user profiles. These user profiles can then be used to display advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the users' interests. Cookies are usually stored on users' computers for these purposes, in which users' usage behavior and interests are saved. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in).

The processing of users' personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If users are asked by the respective platform providers for consent to the data processing described above, the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the linked information of the providers below.

Also, in the case of requests for information and the exercise of user rights, we would like to point out that these can be most effectively asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to users' data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, you can contact us.

Within our online offer, we use content or service offerings from third-party providers based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in analyzing, optimizing, and economically operating our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content").

This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We endeavor to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic to the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time, and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.
