The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence,
we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data
protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.
Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises
data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we
collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the

We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail communications)

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)
The data processing controller on this website is:
Fax: +49-30 -92109215
The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes
decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail
with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for

Information on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries
Among other things, we use tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other from a data
protection perspective non-secure non-EU countries. If these tools are active, your personal data may
potentially be transferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We must point out that in
these countries, a data protection level that is comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed.
For instance, U.S. enterprises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security agencies and you as
the data subject do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out
that U.S. agencies (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analyze, and permanently archive your personal
data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to the processing of data
A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also
revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness
of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct
advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE
THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON
GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED
ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS
BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE
WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO
PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA,
THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE
PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION
PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING,
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR
THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE
EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL
DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES
(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory
agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the
place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other
administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.
Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your
consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine
readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done
only if it is technically feasible.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or
inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption
program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser
switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Encrypted payment transactions on this website
If you are under an obligation to share your payment information (e.g. account number if you give us the
authority to debit your bank account) with us after you have entered into a fee-based contract with us, this
information is required to process payments.
Payment transactions using common modes of paying (Visa/MasterCard, debit to your bank account) are
processed exclusively via encrypted SSL or TLS connections. You can recognize an encrypted connection by
checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the
appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.
If the communication with us is encrypted, third parties will not be able to read the payment information you
share with us.
Information about, rectification and eradication of data
Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand
information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the
processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have
questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to
contact us at any time.
Right to demand processing restrictions
You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is
concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in
the following cases:
In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need
some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to
demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to
demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal
entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead
of its eradication.
If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be
weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the
right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving
– may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to
protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by
the European Union or a member state of the EU.
Rejection of unsolicited e-mails
We herewith object to the use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory
information to be provided in our Site Notice to send us promotional and information material that we have
not expressly requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal
action in the event of the unsolicited sending of promotional information, for instance via SPAM messages.

purpose of other cookies may be the analysis of user patterns or the display of promotional messages.
Cookies, which are required for the performance of electronic communication transactions, or for the

cookies in certain cases or in general or activate the delete function for the automatic eradication of cookies
when the browser closes. If cookies are deactivated, the functions of this website may be limited.

contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based
on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or
on your agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested.
The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the
data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being
archived no longer exists (e.g., after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without
prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods.
Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name,
request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these

We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that
YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video.
Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled
out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a
video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be
established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are

browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your
Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your

able to obtain information about this website’s visitors. Among other things, this information will be used to
generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts
to commit fraud.
Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have
started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.
The use of YouTube is based on our interest in presenting our online content in an appealing manner.
Pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, this is a legitimate interest. If appropriate consent has been obtained, the
processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar the
consent includes the storage of cookies or the access to information in the user’s end device (e.g., device
fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.
