5. Your rights as the data subject

If your person-related data is processed based on the visit to our Website, you have the following rights as the data subject within the meaning of DSGVO:

5.1 Information

You can demand information from us according to Article 15 DSGVO as to whether your person-related data is processed by us. This right to information is excluded if the data is only saved because it may not be deleted due to statutory archiving periods or those based on articles of association or serves exclusively purposes of data security or privacy monitoring, if issuing information would require a disproportionately great effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organisational measures. If, in your case, the right to information is not excluded and your person-related data is processed by us, then you may demand the following information from us:

- Purposes of processing,
- Categories of your person-related data processed,
- Recipients or categories of recipients to whom your person-related data is disclosed, in particular of recipients in third countries,
- If possible the planned duration for which your person-related data is to be saved or if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the duration of storage,
- The existence of a right to correction or deletion or restriction of processing of your person-related data or an objection to this processing,
- The existence of a right to complain to a supervisory authority for data privacy,
- If the person-related data was not collected from you as the data subject, any available information on the origin of the data,
- If applicable, the existence of automatic decision-making including profiling and comprehensive information on the logic involved as well as the consequence and effects of the automatic decision-making intended,
- If applicable, in the case of transfer to recipients in third countries, unless there is a resolution by the EU Commission on the suitability of the level of protection according to Article 45 Subpara. 3 DSGVO, information on which suitable guarantees are provided for according to Article 46 Subpara. 2 DSGVO to protect the person-related data.


5.2 Correction and completion

If you find that we have incorrect person-related data concerning you, then according to Article 16 DSGVO you may demand immediate correction of the incorrect data from us. If the person-related data referring to you is incomplete, you may demand completion thereof.

5.3 Deletion

According to Article 17 DSGVO you have a right to deletion (Right to be Forgotten), unless processing is required to exercise the right to freedom of expression, the right to information, to fulfil a legal obligation or perform a task of public interest and one of the following reasons applies:- The person-related data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was processed.
- The basis for the legitimate interest in processing was exclusively your consent which you have now revoked.
- You have lodged objection to the processing of your person-related data which we have released.
- You have lodged objection to the processing of person-related data which we have not released and there is no overriding justified reason for the processing.
- Your person-related data was processed unlawfully.
- The deletion of the person-related data is required to fulfil a statutory obligation to which we are subject.

There is no claim to deletion if such deletion, in the case of lawful non-automatic data processing is not possible due to the particular kind of storage or is only possible with a disproportionately great effort and your interest in the deletion is slight. In this case, a restriction of processing supersedes the deletion.

5.4 Restriction of processing

According to Article 18 DSGVO you may demand restriction of processing from us if one of the reasons below applies:
- You dispute the correctness of the person-related data. In this case, the restriction can be demanded for the duration that allows us to check the correctness of the data.
- The processing is unlawful and you demand restriction of the use of your person-related data instead of deletion.
- Your person-related data is no longer required by us for the purposes of processing; however you require it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
- You have lodged an objection according to Article 21 Subpara. 1 DSGVO. The restriction of processing may be demanded until it is established whether our legitimate interests outweigh your reasons.
Restriction of processing means that the person-related data is only processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural person or corporate entity or for reasons of important public interest. We are obliged to notify you before we cancel the restriction.

5.5 Data portability

According to Article 20 DSGVO you have the right to data portability if processing is based on your consent (Article 6 Subpara. 1 Sentence 1, a) or Article 9 Subpara. 2, a) DSGVO) or is based on a contract to which you are a contracting party and the processing is effected using automatic processes. The right to data portability in this case includes the following rights unless the rights and freedoms of other persons are impaired thereby: you may demand to receive the person-related data you made available to us in a structured customary and machine-readable format from us. You have the right to transfer this data to another responsible entity without hindrance on our part. If technically feasible, you may demand that we transfer your person-related data directly to another responsible entity.

5.6 Right of objection

If the processing is based on Article 6 Subpara. 1 Sentence 1, e) DSGVO (performance of a task in the public interest or in exercising official authority) or on Article 6 Subpara. 1 Sentence 1, f) DSGVO (legitimate interests of the responsible entity or a third party), you have the right according to Article 21 DSGVO, to lodge an objection to the processing of your person-related data if there are reasons for this resulting from you particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on Article 6 Subpara. 1 Sentence 1, e) or f) DSGVO. We no longer process your person-related data after this right to objection has been exercised, unless we can demonstrate compelling, legitimate reasons for the processing that supersede your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
You may lodge objection to the processing of your person-related data for direct marketing purposes at any time. This also applies to profiling in connection with such direct marketing. We will no longer use the person-related data concerned for direct marketing purposes once this right of objection has been exercised.
You can notify you objection informally by phone, e-mail, by fax or at our postal address at the top of this Privacy Statement.

After receipt of the revocation, the data processing solely based on your consent is discontinued.

5.8 Complaint

If you are of the opinion that the processing of the person-related data referring to you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint according to Article 77 DSGVO with a data protection supervisory authority relevant to the location of your residence or place of work or for the location of the alleged breach.

Google Tag Manager

Diese Website benutzt den Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager ist eine Lösung, mit der Vermarkter Website-Tags über eine Oberfläche verwalten können. Das Tool Tag Manager selbst (das die Tags implementiert) ist eine cookielose Domain und erfasst keine personenbezogenen Daten. Das Tool sorgt für die Auslösung anderer Tags, die ihrerseits unter Umständen Daten erfassen. Google Tag Manager greift nicht auf diese Daten zu. Wenn auf Domain- oder Cookie-Ebene eine Deaktivierung vorgenommen wurde, bleibt diese für alle Tracking-Tags bestehen, die mit Google Tag Manager implementiert werden.


8.  Data security

We use the widespread SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure during visits to our Website in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. This is generally a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we revert to 128-bit v3 technology instead. The closed image of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser shows whether individual pages of our Website are transferred encrypted.
Apart from that, we make use of suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data from random or deliberate manipulation, partial or complete loss,
destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved aligned to technological development.
