Data processing on this website is carried out by the operator of the website. The latter’s contact data can be found in the Legal Notice of this website.
How do we record your data?
One way of collecting data is that you submit it to us. This may for example be data you have entered in a contact form.
Other information is collected automatically by our IT systems when our website is accessed. This is above all technical data, such as an Internet browser, operating system or the time the website was accessed. The collection of this data takes place automatically, whenever you enter our website.
What do we do with your data?
Some data is collected to ensure that the website operates trouble-free. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.
What rights do you have concerning your data?
You have the right at any time to obtain, free of charge, access to information about the origin, recipient and purpose of the stored personal data concerning you. You also have the right to have this data rectified, blocked or erased. Hereto and in case of further queries concerning personal data, you may contact us at any time at the address in the Legal Notice. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.
We remind you that data transfer on the Internet (e.g. email communication) may involve security risks. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

The data controller is the natural or legal person who on his or her own or together with others determines the purpose and means of processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar.)
WITHDRAWAL OF YOUR CONSENT TO DATA PROCESSING
Many data processing procedures are permissible only with your explicit consent. You may at any time withdraw consent you have already given. To do this, simply email us an informal message. The legality of data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
RIGHT TO LODGE A COMPLAINT WITH THE RESPONSIBLE SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
In case of data protection infringements, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority in matters of data protection is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our institution is based.

RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY
You have the right to obtain the data we have processed by automated means based on your consent or in order to conclude a contract, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. If you demand that the data be transferred directly to another responsible authority, this shall only take place if it is technically possible.
SSL & TLS ENCRYPTION
For safety reasons, and to protect the transfer of confidential content you have sent to us as the website operator, such as order details or contact requests, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can tell if a connection is encrypted when instead of "http://", you have an "https://" address line in your browser, and also by the padlock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
ACCESS, BLOCKING, ERASURE
Within the framework of valid statutory regulations, you have the right, at any time, to information, free of charge, regarding stored personal data concerning you, its origin or recipients, and the purpose of data processing, and, where applicable, a right to rectification, blockage or erasure of this data. Hereto and in case of further queries concerning personal data, you may contact us at any time at the address in the Legal Notice.
The Internet pages partly utilise so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. The purpose of cookies is to make our service more user-friendly, effective and safe. Cookies are small text files which are transferred to your computer and stored by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically erased after your session. Other cookies remain on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit us.
You can adjust your browser so that it informs you whenever cookies are set, allow these only in individual cases, accept them in certain cases or rule them out altogether as well as activate the automatic deletion of cookies upon closing your browser. By deactivating cookies, you may limit the functionality of this website.
The website provider collects and stores data automatically in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:
the type of browser and version in use
operating system used
hostname of the accessing computer
time of server inquiry
This data is not amalgamated with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is point f of Art. 6(1) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you submit queries to us via the contact form, your details in the contact form including the contact data you have entered there shall be stored by us in order to process the query or answer any further questions. We do not transfer this data without your consent.
The processing of data entered into the contact form thus occurs solely on the basis of your consent (point a of Art. 6(1) GDPR). You may withdraw this consent at any time. To do this, simply email us an informal message. The legality of data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
We retain the data you submit in the contact form until you ask for it to be erased, withdraw your consent to storage, or until the purpose of storage of data has been fulfilled (for example upon conclusion of processing of your query.) Mandatory legal provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.
