In accordance with our legal obligations, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data.

General Terms

When you use our website, personal data is collected about you. This can be done by you entering the data yourself, for example your e-mail address. However, our system also collects data from you automatically, such as your visit to our website. This occurs regardless of the device or software with which you use our website.

Any entry of data by you on our website is voluntary, there are no disadvantages for you by not disclosing your data. Without certain data, however, it is not possible for us to provide services, arrange applications or conclude contracts.

On this website, personal data of the user is only collected within the framework of the applicable data protection law, in particular the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). The technical terms used in the text are explained in more detail in Art. 4 of the DSGVO.

Data processing is permitted under the DSGVO in three cases in particular:

according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and 7 DSGVO, if you have consented to data processing by us; in each case, we will inform you in advance in this data protection declaration and on the occasion of the consent in accordance with Art. 4 No. 11 DSGVO exactly for what purpose and under what circumstances your data will be processed by us;

according to Art. 6 para 1 lit. b DSGVO, if the processing of your personal data is necessary for the initiation, conclusion or execution of a contractual relationship;

according to Art. 6 para 1 lit. f DSGVO, if, after a balancing of interests, the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests; this includes, in particular, our interests in analyzing, optimizing and securing the offer on our website – this includes, in particular, an analysis of user behavior, the creation of profiles for advertising purposes and the storage of access data, as well as the use of third-party providers.

Inventory Data, Usage Data and Advertising

Inventory Data
We collect inventory data (e.g. name, address and e-mail address, services used, if applicable) to the extent that it is required for the establishment, content or amendment of a contractual relationship between us and the user. Before sending advertising, we will ask you for your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 4 No. 11 DSGVO, unless it concerns advertising for similar products that you have already purchased. This is done in particular when you give us your consent to send you our newsletter or when you fill out a contact form.

Usage Data
Furthermore, we collect usage data (for example, visits to the website, interest in products) to enable and bill the user’s use of the services on our website. We will only combine usage data if and to the extent that this is necessary for billing purposes. Otherwise, we will only create usage data pseudonymously and only if you have not objected to this. You can send this objection at any time to the address given in the imprint or to the responsible person named in this privacy policy. The legal basis for this data processing is, on the one hand, our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO in the analysis of the website and your use, and, if applicable, also the legal permission to store data as part of the initiation of a contractual relationship pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Furthermore, each time you use this website, our provider stores information, the so-called server log files, which are automatically transmitted by your browser. These are:

  • Your IP address
  • Type and version of your browser
  • Host name
  • Time of visit
  • The page from which you visited our site
  • Name of the page you visited
  • Date and exact time of the call
  • The amount of data transferred

This data is only used for statistical purposes and does not allow us to identify you as a user.

If you have expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. For the receipt of the newsletter, the specification of an e-mail address is sufficient. Unsubscribing is possible at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can also send your unsubscribe request at any time by e-mail to ed.su1716388995tseal1716388995es@of1716388995ni1716388995.

For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website. In doing so, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that we know from whom the inquiry originates and so that we can answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily. Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntarily given consent. The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after completion of your request.

Storage Period
As a matter of principle, your data will only be stored for as long as the purpose of the respective data processing requires. Further storage is primarily considered if this is still necessary for legal prosecution by us or for our other legitimate interests, or if we are required by law to retain your data (e.g. within the framework of tax retention periods, which are generally 6 or 10 years). For the storage of application data, we will ask you separately for your consent to also store this data for further application procedures.

Disclosure to Third Parties
We don’t like spam any more than you do. We will therefore not pass on your data to third parties unless this is permitted by law.

A passing on of your data can either be

  • necessary for the fulfillment of a contract and then permitted under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO or
  • be permitted on the basis of our legitimate interest in effective service provision pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO,
  • be covered by a consent granted by you, or
  • become necessary if we are lawfully required by a state or authority to hand over your data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.
  • Transfer abroad, in particular to the USA

Our website uses external providers based outside the EU for various functions. This may result in the processing and storage of your data outside the EU, in particular through cookies, active Java scripts and other techniques. However, we will not transfer your data to a third country unless the EU Commission has determined that data protection is comparable to that in the EU or you have given us informed consent or we have agreed with the provider on the standard contractual clauses for the protection of your data.

For the USA, adequate data protection has again been established under certain conditions with the Privacy Shield Agreement (see https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome).

For more information on your rights in the event of any transfer of data to the USA mentioned below, please visit http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/document/citizens-guide_en.pdf.

Integration of Third Party Services and Content

It may happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the user. This is because without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary for the display of this content. We endeavor to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.

YouTube
The controller has integrated components of YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and TV shows, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting by calling up a sub-page that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website.

The privacy policy published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

Vimeo
On our site, we use videos from Vimeo, a third-party provider. For technical reasons, the integration of Vimeo videos results in calls to the Vimeo servers. Data from your browser or terminal device is transmitted to the Vimeo server. It is also transmitted which of our Internet pages you have visited. For the use of data from your browser or terminal device associated with the playing of a video, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy. Further information on data processing and notes on data protection by Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.
