This website is hosted externally. The personal data that is collected on this website is stored on the servers of the host or hosting provider. This may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contract data, contact details, names, website access, and other data generated via a website.

Unless a more specific storage period has been mentioned within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for data processing ceases.

General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website

If you have given your consent to data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR if special categories of personal data are processed in accordance with Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR. In the case of explicit consent to the transmission of personal data to third countries, data processing is also carried out on the basis of Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. If you have given your consent to the storage of cookies or access to information on your terminal device (e.g., via device fingerprinting), data processing will additionally be carried out on the basis of ยง 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Consent may be revoked at any time. If your data is required to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, we will process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. Furthermore, we will process your data if it is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. Data processing may also take place on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The relevant legal bases for each specific case are provided in the following paragraphs of this privacy policy.

Note on data transfer to the US and other third countries

We use tools from companies based in the US or other third countries that do not provide a level of data protection equivalent to that of the EU. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that a data protection level comparable to that of the EU cannot be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to disclose personal data to security authorities without the data subject being able to take legal action against this. It is therefore not possible to rule out the possibility that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke consent that has already been given at any time. The legality of data processing that has occurred prior to revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in the following paragraphs of this privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that
