Privacy Policy

Personal data (usually referred to just as „data“ below) will only be processed by us to the extent neces­sary and for the purpose of providing a func­tional and user-friendly website, including its contents, and the services offered there.

Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Regu­la­tion (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the General Data Protec­tion Regu­la­tion (here­inafter referred to as the „GDPR“), „processing“ refers to any oper­a­tion or set of oper­a­tions such as collec­tion, recording, orga­ni­za­tion, struc­turing, storage, adap­ta­tion, alter­ation, retrieval, consul­ta­tion, use, disclo­sure by trans­mis­sion, dissem­i­na­tion, or other­wise making avail­able, align­ment, or combi­na­tion, restric­tion, erasure, or destruc­tion performed on personal data, whether by auto­mated means or not.

The following privacy policy is intended to inform you in partic­ular about the type, scope, purpose, duration, and legal basis for the processing of such data either under our own control or in conjunc­tion with others. We also inform you below about the third-party compo­nents we use to optimize our website and improve the user expe­ri­ence which may result in said third parties also processing data they collect and control.

Our privacy policy is struc­tured as follows:

I. Infor­ma­tion about us as controllers of your data
II. The rights of users and data subjects
III. Infor­ma­tion about the data processing

I. Infor­ma­tion about us as controllers of your data

II. The rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right

  • to confir­ma­tion of whether data concerning them is being processed, infor­ma­tion about the data being processed, further infor­ma­tion about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
  • to correct or complete incor­rect or incom­plete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
  • to the imme­diate deletion of data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alter­na­tively, if further processing is neces­sary as stip­u­lated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said processing per Art. 18 GDPR;
  • to receive copies of the data concerning them and/or provided by them and to have the same trans­mitted to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
  • to file complaints with the super­vi­sory authority if they believe that data concerning them is being processed by the controller in breach of data protec­tion provi­sions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recip­i­ents to whom it discloses data of any such correc­tions, dele­tions, or restric­tions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this oblig­a­tion does not apply if such noti­fi­ca­tion is impos­sible or involves a dispro­por­tionate effort. Never­the­less, users have a right to infor­ma­tion about these recipients.

Likewise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to the controller’s future processing of their data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In partic­ular, an objec­tion to data processing for the purpose of direct adver­tising is permissible.

III. Infor­ma­tion about the data processing

Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for its storage ceases to apply, provided the deletion of the same is not in breach of any statu­tory storage oblig­a­tions or unless other­wise stip­u­lated below.

Cookie Manager

To obtain consent for the use of tech­ni­cally unnec­es­sary cookies on the website, the provider uses a cookie manager.

When the website is called up, a cookie with the settings infor­ma­tion is stored on the end device of the user so that the request for consent does not have to be made on a subse­quent visit.

The cookie is required to obtain legally compliant user consent.

You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your internet browser.

WhatsApp

To estab­lish contact, the provider enables the customer, among other things, to make contact via the messenger service WhatsApp. WhatsApp is a service of WhatsApp Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, here­inafter referred to as WhatsApp, a subsidiary of Facebook.

When the user commu­ni­cates with the provider via WhatsApp, both the provider and WhatsApp receive the mobile phone number of the user and the infor­ma­tion that the user has contacted the provider.

The above­men­tioned data are also forwarded by WhatsApp to Facebook servers in the USA and are processed by WhatsApp and Facebook in accor­dance with the WhatsApp privacy policy, which also includes processing for their own purposes, such as improving the WhatsApp service.

_____________________

In the opinion of the data protec­tion super­vi­sory author­i­ties, however, the USA does not currently have an adequate level of data protec­tion. However, there are so-called standard contrac­tual clauses:

 

https://faq.whatsapp.com/general/about-standard-contractual-clauses

These are private law agree­ments, however, and there­fore have no direct impact on the access options of the author­i­ties in the USA.

_____________________

More infor­ma­tion about the purpose and scope of the data collec­tion and the further processing of these data by WhatsApp and Facebook as well as related rights and setting options for protecting privacy are contained in privacy guide­lines from WhatsApp:

https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/#privacy-policy.

The legal basis for this processing and the trans­mis­sion to WhatsApp is Article 6 para. 1 clause 1 b. GDPR, insofar as the estab­lish­ment of contact relates to an existing contrac­tual rela­tion­ship or serves to initiate such a contrac­tual rela­tion­ship. If contact is not made for the above purposes, the legal basis is Article  6 para.1 lit. f GDPR. The legit­i­mate interest of the provider is to improve the quality of service.

General intro­duc­tion

The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in asso­ci­a­tion with any other of your data.

The basis for this storage is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legit­i­mate interest lies in the improve­ment, stability, func­tion­ality, and security of our website.

However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymiza­tion function, whereby Google trun­cates the IP address within the EU or the EEA before it is trans­mitted to the US.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an eval­u­a­tion of visits to our website and what visitors do once there. This data can also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and of the internet in general.

Google states that it will not connect your IP address to other data. In addition, Google provides further infor­ma­tion with regard to its data protec­tion prac­tices at

The add-on informs Google Analytics‘ JavaScript (ga.js) that no infor­ma­tion about the website visit should be trans­mitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent infor­ma­tion from being trans­mitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use as detailed herein.

Our website uses Google Maps to display our location and to provide direc­tions. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (here­inafter: Google).

To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connec­tion to the Google server in the USA is estab­lished whenever our website is accessed.

If you access the Google Maps compo­nents inte­grated into our website, Google will store a cookie on your device via your browser. Your user settings and data are processed to display our location and create a route descrip­tion. We cannot prevent Google from using servers in the USA.

In case you have granted your consent to this processing the legal basis is Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The legal basis can also be Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legit­i­mate interest lies in opti­mizing the func­tion­ality of our website.

By connecting to Google in this way, Google can deter­mine from which website your request has been sent and to which IP address the direc­tions are transmitted.

If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the instal­la­tion of cookies by making the appro­priate settings in your browser. Further details can be found in the section about cookies above.

In addition, the use of Google Maps and the infor­ma­tion obtained via Google Maps is governed by the Google Terms of Use https://policies.google.com/terms?gl=DE&hl=en and the Terms and Condi­tions for Google Maps https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.
