Right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct advertising (Article 21 of the GDPR)

If the data processing is carried out on the basis of points (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, you have the right, at any time, to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons related to your particular situation. This also applies to profiling on the basis of these regulations. Please refer to this privacy statement for information about the legal basis for the processing of your data.

SSL or TLS encryption

This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security purposes or to protect the transmission of  confidential content, such as orders or enquiries which you have sent to us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by a change in the address line of your browser from 'http://' to 'https://' and the presence of the lock icon in it.

When SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data which you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, erasure and rectification

In accordance with the legal regulations in force at the time, you have, at any time, the right to free information about your stored personal data, the source and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, under certain circumstances, a right to the rectification, blocking or erasure of these data. You may contact us for this purpose or if you have any other questions about personal data at any time using the address given in the impressum.

Right to restriction of the processing of data

You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data. You may contact us for this purpose at any time using the address given in the impressum. You have the right to restriction of the processing of your data under the following circumstances:

If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data while we are carrying out this check.

If your personal data has been or is being processed illegally, you may request that the processing of your data be restricted instead of the data being erased.

If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your data be restricted instead of the data being erased.

If you have lodged an objection according to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, your interests and our interests must be weighed against each other. Until it has been established whose interests are overriding, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may only be processed - beyond being stored - with your 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 substantial public interest within the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to advertising e-mails

This statement constitutes an objection to the use of our contact details, which are published in accordance with the legal duty to provide an impressum, for the purpose of sending advertising material or information which has not been explicitly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take legal action in case of the sending of unsolicited advertising material, such as spam e-mails.

3. Collection of data on our website

Cookies

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

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the use of cookies and can enable cookies on a case-by-case basis, disable them in certain cases or altogether, and activate the automatic erasure of cookies when you close the browser. When cookies are disabled, this may impair the functioning of this website.

Cookies which are required for the implementation of electronic communication or for the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The operator of this website has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure optimum presentation of their services free of technical errors. In so far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this privacy statement.

You need only to send us an e-mail. The legality of data processing before the withdrawal of consent is not affected by the withdrawal.

The data entered by you in the contact form will be stored by us until you ask us to erase it, withdraw your consent for the storage, or the data no longer needs to be stored for the original purpose (e.g. when your enquiry has been dealt with). Mandatory legal provisions - time limits on storage, in particular - remain unaffected.
