Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations require your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time by sending us an informal e-mail. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the time of revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct marketing (art. 21 GDPR)
Where your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing; this also includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, especially in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you send us as the operator of the website. An encrypted connection can be recognised by the address line of the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Right to access, blocking, correction and deletion
In accordance with the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right, at any time and free of charge, to obtain access to your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, including a right to rectification, blocking and erasure of these data. If you have any questions on this subject or on personal data, please contact us at the address stated in the “Legal notice” section.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data. If you have any questions on this subject, please contact us at the address stated in the “Legal notice” section. The right to restriction of processing applies in the following cases:
- If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/has been unlawful, you may request restriction of the processing instead of erasure.
- If we do not require your personal data any longer but you require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you have lodged an objection in accordance with art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, your interests and our interests have to be weighed up. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests override, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a member state.
Objection to advertising e-mails
We hereby expressly object to the use of contact details published within the scope of the obligation under German law to provide publication details in a “Legal notice” (Impressum) on the internet for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information material.

Consequently, the processing of the data entered in the contact form will be based on your consent (art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time by sending us an informal e-mail. The legitimacy of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation will remain unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain in our possession until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose of data storage no longer applies (i.e. after your request has been completed). This does not affect mandatory statutory regulations – especially retention periods.
Request via e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, we will store and process your enquiry including all associated personal data for the purpose of processing your request. We will not forward these data without your approval.
These data will be processed on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR provided that your enquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary to meet pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/or our legitimate interests (art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests sent to us.
The data you send us via contact requests will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose of data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). This does not affect mandatory statutory regulations – especially retention periods.
