Data Privacy

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains which data we collect and what we use them for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., when communicating by email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.

The responsible entity is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g., names, email addresses, etc.).

Storage Duration

Unless a more specific storage duration is mentioned within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the latter case, deletion will occur after these reasons no longer apply.

Revocation of your consent for data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke a consent already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in specific cases as well as to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing is based on Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation, including profiling based on these provisions. You can find the respective legal basis for processing in this privacy statement. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims (objection pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR).

If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising, including profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR).

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive personal data concerning you, which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from us, 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 inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

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

Information, deletion, and correction

You have the right, in accordance with the applicable legal provisions, to obtain free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as, if applicable, a right to rectification or erasure of this data. For this purpose, as well as for any further questions regarding personal data, you can always contact us.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time to exercise this right. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. During the verification period, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawfully carried out, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data but you require them for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have objected pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, aside from storage, these data may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

  • Browser type and browser version

Through these platforms and features, we may receive or share information about you, and this privacy policy also applies to this information. Additionally, some third-party social media or blogging platform providers we use have their own privacy policies explaining how they may collect, use, and protect your data (for example, when you create an account with such platform providers).
