The above-mentioned responsible persons exclusively decide on the purposes and means of processing private personal data (e.g. names, contact data etc.).

Revocation of your Consent to Data Processing

Some data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. A simple informal notification by eMail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out until your revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of Complaint to the Competent Supervisory Authority

In case of any breach of the data protection law, you as the party concerned have the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the Data Protection Commissioner of the Federal State of Lower Saxony. The following link provides a list of data protection commissioners and their contact details:

Right to Data Portability

You have the right to request to have your personal data - which we process automatically on the basis of your formerly implicit or explicit given consent - handed over to you or to third parties you nominate. The data will be provided in a 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.

Right to Information, Correction, Blocking, Deletion

You have at any time the right to request an information about your personal data we have stored, the origin of the data, its recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the framework of the applicable statutory provisions. In this regard and for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time via the contact options listed above or in the disclaimer.

SSL- or TLS-Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission and exchange of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL- or TLS-encryption. This means that data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" prefix in the address line of your browser and/or by the lock symbol in the browser address line. Enquiries/messages sent by means of the contact form are also encrypted and can therefore not be read by third parties.

Server-Log-Files

In server log files, the provider of our website automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browsertype and Browserversion
  • Operating System used
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of accessing computer
  • Time of Serverrequest
  • IP-Address (anonymized)

These data are not merged or synchronised with other data sources. The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (German law), which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact Form

Any data transmitted via the contact form including your contact details will be stored in order to be able to process your request or to be available for follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

The data entered in the contact form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). This consent will be considered as given as soon you submit your message. A revocation of your consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by eMail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data transmitted via the contact form remain stored on our server until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or until there is no longer any need for data storage. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Cookies

Our website is using cookies. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your computer. Cookies help us to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer.

Some cookies are so-called "session cookies". Such cookies are deleted automatically on completion of your browser session. On the other hand, other cookies remain preserved on your computer until you delete them explicitly yourself. Such cookies enable us to recognise your computer when you return to our website.

With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured to delete cookies automatically when you close the program. But keep in mind that the deactivation of cookies might result in a limited functionality of our website.

The setting of cookies, which are necessary for the purpose of electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions requested by you, are being made on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (German law). As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services.

Cookies for analysis functions (e.g. Google Analytics or Matomo ex. Piwiks or similar) are not set because our website does not use such services.
