The controller as defined in data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is:
Your rights as a data subject
You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details of our data protection officer:
Right to access information regarding the personal data we have stored about you
Right to rectification of personal data
Right to erasure of the data we have stored about you
Right to restriction of processing if we are not yet permitted to erase your data due to legal obligations
Right to object to the processing of your data by us
Right to data portability, as long as you have consented to the processing of your data or have concluded a contract with us
If you have given us your consent, you may withdraw it at any time with future effect.
You can address any complaints to the relevant supervisory authority at any time. The supervisory authority responsible for you is dependent on the federal state where you reside, your work or the suspected violation. A list of the supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with addresses can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Purposes of data processing by the controller and third parties
You have given us your express consent
The processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you
The processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation
The processing is necessary on the grounds of legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in your data not being transferred
Erasure or blocking of your data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. For that reason, we only store your personal data for the length of time needed in order to achieve the purposes stated above or in line with the various retention periods stipulated by law. Once this purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the data will be blocked or erased routinely in line with the statutory regulations.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically gives us certain data, such as IP address, browser used, operating system of your computer and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.
The data collected by us will not be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent under any circumstances.
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to render our content correctly and in a graphically appealing way across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent loading multiple times. If your browser does not support Google Webfonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
Retrieving script or font libraries automatically initiates a connection to the operator of the library. It is therefore possible that operators of such libraries may gather data, although it is currently unclear whether this occurs and for what purposes data may be gathered.
Use of Google Maps
