Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient for this.The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by this revocation.

Right to object against data collection in special cases and against direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing is carried out based on 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 on which processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 (1) GDPR).

If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection according to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the persons concerned have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, workplace or place of presumed infringement. The right of appeal will be without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which 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 responsible person, this will only be done as far 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 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 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.

Information, blocking, erasure and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or erasure of this data.You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for this and other questions on the subject of personal data.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict the processing exists 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 examination, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If your personal data has been 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 exercise, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, you must weigh your interests 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.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may not be processed – apart from their storage – without your consent or for the purpose of 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 Union or of a Member State.

 

3. Data collection on our website

 

Cookies

Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies which are necessary for the execution of the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

 

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

These data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in a technically error-free presentation and optimisation of his website – the server log files must be recorded for this purpose.

Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request including all personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us.

The data sent to us by you via contact requests will remain with us until you request erasure, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – will remain unaffected.

 

4. Plugins and Tools

 

Google Web Fonts

This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place.

Google Maps (with consent)

This page uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.To ensure the privacy of our website, Google Maps is disabled the first time you visit our site. A direct connection to Google’s servers will only be established if you activate Google Maps independently (consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). This prevents your data from being transferred to Google the first time you visit the site.After activation, Google Maps will store your IP address. This is then usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this page has no influence on this data transfer after the activation of Google Maps.

Social Media Buttons

To share the content of our website via social media networks, we offer so-called social media buttons. For this we use the “c’t Shariff” solution developed by c’t Magazin für Computer Technik, which provides social media buttons that conform to data protection regulations. The buttons offered directly by the operators of social media networks impermissibly transmit personal data such as the IP address or entire cookies even when a website on which they are integrated is loaded, and thus provide unsolicited precise information about your surfing behaviour to the social media services. You do not need to be logged in or a member of the respective network. A Shariff button, on the other hand, only establishes direct contact between the social network and the visitor when the latter actively clicks on the share button. In this way Shariff prevents you from leaving a digital trace on every page you visit and improves data protection. By using Shariff we can protect your personal data and still integrate butttons for social media sharing. Further information about c’t Shariff can be found at: https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html
