Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection statement explains what data we collect and what we use it for.

A comprehensive protection of the data by third parties is not possible.
WITHDRAWAL OF YOUR CONSENT TO DATA PROCESSING
Many data processing procedures are only possible with your expressed consent. You can withdraw given consent at any time. A formless notification by email is sufficient for this purpose. The lawfulness of the data processing up to the point of consent withdrawal remains unaffected by this withdrawal.
RIGHT TO COMPLAIN TO THE COMPETENT SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
In the event of data protection law violations, the person concerned has the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in data protection law matters is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which your company is based.

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of an agreement sent to you or a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request direct transmission of the data to another person in charge, this will be carried out as technically feasible.
SSL OR TLS ENCRYPTION
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of data, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can identify an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in the address line. When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties while in transfer.
