2.1 Entry of the website


When entering the website, the internet browser used by the visitor automatically sends data to the server of this website and such data is temporarily saved in a logfile. The following data is saved until its automated deletion without further entry by the visitor:


  • IP-address of the terminal device of the visitor,

  • simplifying and improving the administration of the website.


The processing is not used for the purpose of obtaining information on the visitor’s persona.

All further disclosure of information can be given by the enquiring person voluntarily. With the submission of the message via the contact form, the visitor agrees to the processing of their personal data for this purpose. The data processing is solely made for the purpose of answering the submitted messages via the contact form. This takes place on the basis of the voluntarily given consent.

In all other cases personal data is not transferred to third parties.


4. Cookies

So called cookies are used on this website. Cookies are data packages exchanged between the server of the website of the operator and the browser of the visitor. When visiting the website, the cookies are saved by the used devices (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) Cookies cannot cause damage to the devices used. They especially do not include viruses or other malware. Information which becomes apparent in relation with the specific terminal device used is stored in the cookies. The operator cannot thereby acquire immediate knowledge of the visitor’s identity. Cookies are widely accepted under the basic setting of the browsers. The browser settings can be set up so that cookies are either not accepted on the used devices or that a special notice occurs before a new cookie is established. It is indicated, however, that the deactivation of cookies can lead to not being able to use all functions of the website in the best manner. The use of cookies serves the purpose of making the use of the operator’s web-offer more comfortable. It is thereby possible to use session cookies to track whether the visitor had visited single pages of the website before. These session- cookies are deleted automatically after leaving the website. Temporary cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness. They are saved temporarily on the device of the visitor. Upon visiting the website again, it is automatically detected that the visitor had already visited the website prior and which entries and settings were made by them so that such entries do not have to be repeated.  Cookies are also used for analysing the visits of the website for statistical purposes as well as the purpose of improving the offer. The cookies enable an automatic detection of all prior visits by the visitor. The cookies are deleted after a set period of time. The data processed by cookies is justified for the purposes as set out above in order to preserve the entitled interests of the operator.


5. Your rights as a person concerned

So far as your personal data is processed following the visit of our website, your rights as the “person concerned” are as follows:

5.1 Disclosure

You are entitled to request disclosure of whether your personal data is used by us. There is no such right of disclosure if the grant of such information would violate a professional duty of confidentiality or if the information is to be kept confidential for other reasons, especially due to a predominant justified interest of a third party. The duty of disclosure can, however, divergently persist if your interests, especially taking into account impending injury, prevail over the interest in non-disclosure. The right of disclosure is furthermore excluded if the data is saved solely by reason of not being able to be deleted due to legal or statutory storage terms or if it solely serves the purpose of backup or privacy monitoring as far as the disclosure of information would require disproportionate expenses and the processing by suitable technical and organisational measures for other purposes is excluded. Should the right of disclosure not be excluded in your case and your personal data be processed by us, you are entitled to a disclosure regarding the following information:

  • Purpose of processing,

  • Categories of the personal data processed,

  • Recipient or categories of recipients having received notice of your personal data, especially regarding recipients in third countries,

  • If possible, the prospective duration of your personal data being saved or, if not possible, the criteria for the determination of the duration for saving the data,

  • The existence of a right regarding the rectification, deletion or restraint of a processing of your personal data or of a right of objection to the processing of your data,

  • The existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority responsible for data protection,

  • As far as the personal data is not received from you as the person concerned, the accessible information on the origin of such data,

  • When appropriate the existence of an automated decision making including profiling and sound information on the rationale involved as well as the scope and prospective impact of such automated decision making,

  • When appropriate and in the case of a transfer to recipients in third countries so long as no resolution by the EU-Commission concerning the adequacy of the level of protection is apparent: information on which guarantees are intended for the protection of personal information.


5.2 Rectification and completion

In case you notice that we are in possession of incorrect personal data of yours, you are entitled to a rectification of such incorrect data without undue delay. You are furthermore entitled to the completion of any incomplete personal data.


5.3 Deletion


You are entitled to deletion (“right to be forgotten”) so far as the processing is not necessary for the use of the freedom of expression, the freedom of information or for the compliance with a legal obligation or the performance of a task that is in the public interest and one of the following grounds applies:

  • The personal data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was processed.

  • The ground of justification for the processing was solely your consent which you have now revoked.

  • You have appealed against the processing of the personal data which we have made public.

  • You have appealed against the processing of personal data which we have not made public and there are no prevailing justified grounds for the processing.

  • Your personal data was processed in an undue manner.

  • The deletion of personal data is necessary for the compliance with a statutory obligation we are subjected to.


You are not entitled to deletion in the case of legal non-automated processing of data if such deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionate expenditure with respect to the special mode of storage and your interest in the deletion is minor. In this case the deletion is replaced with a limitation of the processing.


5.4 Limitation of processing

You are entitled to a limitation of the processing if one of the following grounds applies:

  • You dispute the accuracy of the personal data. In this case the limitation can be claimed for a duration which enables us to review the accuracy of the data.

  • The processing is illegitimate, and you claim the limitation of the use of your personal data instead of a deletion.

  • Your personal data is no longer needed for the purposes of processing by us while you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

  • You have filed an objection. The limitation of processing can be claimed as long as it is not clear whether our legitimate grounds prevail over your grounds. Limitation of processing means that the personal data is only processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights or a third natural or legal person or by reasons of public interest. We are legally obliged to inform you prior to lifting the limitation.


5.5 Transferability of data

You are entitled to transferability of data as far as the processing is based on your consent or on an agreement, which you are a party to and as far as the processing is made with the help of an automated procedure. In this case, the right of transferability comprises the following rights as long as no rights or freedoms of other persons are impacted thereby: You can request us to preserve the personal data you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer this data to another responsible person with no obstructions on our part. So far as feasible technically, you can oblige us to directly transfer our personal data to another responsible person.

5.6 Right to object


As far as the processing is for the purpose of performing a duty in the public interest or follows the exercise of public authority or it is based on the justified interest of the person affected or a third person, you have the right to file an objection to the processing of the personal data affecting your person based on reasons arising from your particular circumstances at all times. This also applies to a profiling. Following the exercise of your right of objection, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing which are worthy of protection that prevail over your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal titles. You can file an objection against the processing of the personal data affecting your person for the purpose of direct advertising at all times. The same applies to a profiling in the context of direct advertising. After exercising the right of complaint, we will no longer use the respective personal data for the purposes of direct advertising. You can communicate the complaint via phone, e-mail or informally communicate it to the postal address referenced at the beginning of this declaration of data protection.


5.7 Revocation of consent

You are entitled to revoke given consent with effect for the future at all times. The revocation can be declared via phone, e-mail or informally by sending it to our mailing address. The legality of the data processing which has occurred on the basis of given consent leading up to the receipt of the revocation is not affected by the revocation. The processing of data which was solely based on you consent is ceased after receipt of the revocation.

5.8 Complaint

Should you be of the opinion that the processing of personal data affecting your person is illegal, you can file a complaint with the locally responsible supervisory authority for data protection at your residence or workplace or at the place of the alleged violation.

6. Effect and update of this data protection statement

This data protection statement is the effective version as of 01 March 2020 We reserve updating the data protection statement at the appropriate time in order to further data protection and/or to adapt it to a change in institutional practice or jurisdiction.
