We would like to point out that data transmission in the Internet (e.g. when communicating per email) may be subject to security gaps. Seamless security to protect data from access by third parties is not possible.
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing activities are only possible subject to your explicit consent. You can of course revoke a consent you have already given at any time. It suffices if you send us an informal message to this effect via email. The legality of the data processing up to the date of revocation shall remain unaffected by it.

Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the data about you, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or fulfilment of a contract in a structured, commonly used machine-readable format, or have them transmitted to a third party. However, insofar as you request direct transmission of the data to another controller, this shall only be carried out if it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption in the interest of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or contact requests, which you send to us as website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection of this nature by the address line of the browser, which changes from “http://” to “https://” and also by the padlock icon in your browser bar.
Third parties are unable to access data transmitted to us if SSL or TLS encryption is activated.
Information, blocking, erasure
Within the context of the relevant statutory provisions, you have a right to free access to information about your personal data stored by us, its source, recipients, the purpose of data processing and if necessary, a right to rectification, restriction or erasure of these data.

Objection to advertising mails
Use of the contact details published in the site notice to send unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby expressly contradicted. The website operator expressly reserves the right to take legal steps in case of unsolicited advertising sent in the form of spam mail, for instance.
Data collection on our website
Internet websites use so-called cookies to some extent. Cookies do not damage your computer, nor do they contain viruses, but are used to enhance the user friendliness, efficacy and security of our service. Cookies are small text files set on your computer and stored by your browser.
The majority of cookies we use are called session cookies. They are automatically deleted when you leave the website. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies let us recognise your browser the next time you access our website.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases; or cookies are only accepted in specific cases or generally excluded, or they are automatically erased when you close the browser.

The website provider automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically sends to us. They are:
These data will not be consolidated with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter b of the GDPR, which allows data processing to conclude a contract or pre-contract measures.
When you send requests to us via the contact form, we store your details from the contact form and your contact details in order to process the request and in the case of follow-up questions. We do not forward these data to third parties without your consent.
Processing of the data you enter in the contact form is therefore performed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by simply sending us an informal message to this effect via email. The legality of the data processing up to the date of revocation shall remain unaffected by it.
We will store the data you entered in the contact form until you request erasure, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for which data were stored is no longer necessary (e.g. once we have finished dealing with your request). Compulsory statutory provisions – and retention periods in particular – remain unaffected by this.
