Right to Object to Processing of Personal Data on Grounds Relating to a Particular Situation and Direct Marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
The data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. The relevant legal basis for processing can be found in this privacy statement. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims (right to object pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing (Art. 21 (2) GDPR). Where the data subject objects to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes (Art. 21 (3) GDPR).
The Right to Lodge a Complaint with a Supervisory Authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, every data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of his or her habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and you have the right to transmit those data to a third party. In case you wish to transmit your data to another controller, transmission shall be carried out where 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 enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your 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, Erasure, and Rectification
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectify or erase this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.
Right to Restriction of Processing
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
- If you contest the accuracy of your personal data, we need a period of time to verify your data. During this period, you have the right to demand restriction of processing your personal data.
- If processing your personal data was or is unlawful and you oppose erasure, you may request the restriction of its use.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need them for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims., you may request the restriction of their use instead of their erasure.
- If you have objected to processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, pending the verification it needs to be verified whether the legitimate grounds override yours. During this period of time, you may request the restriction of processing your personal data.
For this purpose, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.
Where processing has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the data subject's consent or for 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 European Union or of an EU member state.

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. They are:
Type and version of browser
- Your operating system
- Referrer URL

- Time of the server request
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The legal grounds for this data collection is provided by Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. The controller has legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of his website —for this purpose the server log files must be recorded.
Enquiries by E-Mail, Phone or Fax
If you contact us by E-mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The legal grounds for this data processing are provided by Art. 6 (1) b GDPR in case your enquiry relates to the performance of a contract or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing your data lies within our legitimate interest in processing your enquiry (Art. 6 (1) f GDPR) or is founded on your consent (Art. 6 (1) a GDPR) as long as you have given it.
The data sent to us by you via contact enquiries will remain with us until you request us to erase it, withdraw your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed).
