Thank you for visiting our website. In this Policy, we would like to inform you about how we handle your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The Controller for the data processing operations described below is the office named in the imprint.
When you visit our website, our web server temporarily evaluates usage data for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our website. This data consists of the following data categories:
- the name and address of the requested content,
- the date and time of the query,
- of the transferred data volume,
- the access status (content transferred, content not found),
- the description of the used web browser and operating system,
- the referral link, which indicates from which page you reached ours,
- the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened in such a way that a personal reference can no longer be established.
The above-mentioned log data will only be evaluated anonymously.
Anonymous Visitor Measurement
We carry out anonymous visitor measurement on our website. For this purpose, the protocol data of the web server and the shortened IP address are evaluated. It is not possible to draw any conclusions about your person.
With the help of Matomo, we are able to analyse visits on our website. This allows us to determine which page views were made, when they were made and from which region they came. We do not collect any other data at any time. Furthermore, we have configured Matomo in a way that it does not store any cookies in your browser.
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers, so that all analytical data remains with us and is not passed on to third parties.
We take technical and organizational measures to protect your data as comprehensively as possible from unwanted access. These measures include encryption procedures on our web pages. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using TLS encryption.
You can usually recognize this by the fact that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address line begins with https://.
You may contact us third-party via our contact form. In order to use our contact form, we will require you to provide the data marked as mandatory.
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, being our legitimate interest to respond to your request.
You can decide whether or not you would like to provide us with further information. This information is provided voluntarily and is not required to contact us.
We process your voluntary details on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
Your data will only be processed to process your request. In this context, it may also be necessary to forward your inquiry to companies of the DSN GROUP (datenschutz nord GmbH, datenschutz süd GmbH, datenschutz cert GmbH, FIRST PRIVACY GmbH, DSN Holding GmbH, FIRST PRIVACY B.V.). The legal basis for this is also Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We will delete your data if they are no longer required and there are no legal obligations to retain them.
Where the processing of your data which is transmitted via the contact form is based on legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to that processing at any time. To do so, please use the email address provided in the imprint.
In addition, you can withdraw your consent to the processing of your voluntarily provided information at any time. To do so, please use the email address provided in the imprint.
Unless otherwise specified, we will delete your personal data if they are no longer required for the relevant processing purposes and no legal retention obligations oppose deletion.
We transfer your data to service providers who support us in the operation of our websites and related processes. These service providers are usually data processors within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR. Our service providers are strictly bound by contracts and our instructions.
Your rights as a data subject
When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a data subject:
Right of access by the data subject (Art. 15 GDPR)
You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you are being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to be informed of this personal data and to receive the information specified in Art. 15 GDPR.
Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
You have the right to rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement without delay.
Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR)
You have the right to obtain the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay if one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 GDPR applies.
Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)
You have the right to request the restriction of processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 GDPR is met, e.g. if you have objected to the processing, for the duration of our examination.
Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
In certain cases, which are listed in detail in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, or to request that this data be transferred to a third party.
Right to withdraw consent (Art. 7 GDPR)
If the processing of data is based on your consent, you are entitled to withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR)
According to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection regulations.
