Withdrawing your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of data processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right to object to data collection in specific cases including
direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR).

If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR,
you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis FOR processing YOUR DATA can be found in this Privacy Policy. If you submit an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR).

Where your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of such advertising; this includes profiling in so far as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (Objection pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR).

Your right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, workplace or place of presumed infringement. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process by automated means on the basis of your consent, or related to the performance of a contract, transferred to you or to third parties. If you request the direct transfer of your data to another controller, we will do so to the extent such a transfer is technically feasible.

SSL/TLS encryption

This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential information, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and by the padlock symbol in the address bar on your browser.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Access, rectification and erasure

Under applicable law, you have the right to obtain
information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, the origin of this data, the recipients of this data and the purpose for which this data is processed and, if applicable, the right to rectify, block or erase this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice if you have any further questions on the subject of data protection or how we handle personal data.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. To make such a request, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restrict processing applies in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of your personal data; you have the right to demand the restriction of processing for your personal data whilst we verify its accuracy.
  • If your personal data was processed/is being processed unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have asserted an objection in accordance with Art. 21(1) GDPR, your interests must be weighed against ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests predominate, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

Where processing has been restricted, such personal 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 promotional emails

Third-party use of contact details published within the scope of legal notice regulations for sending unsolicited advertising and informational materials is hereby expressly forbidden. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising information, such as spam emails.
