The responsible authority according to the data protection act (GDPR) is

Collection and processing of personal data

You can generally use our website without revealing your identity. If we ask for your personal data (e.g. your name, address or e-mail address) on our website, for example on contact forms or when signing in/registering, you can choose to provide these data on a voluntary basis. We use the information provided for our own business-related purposes (for example to send you the materials/information requested).
If you have any questions, we offer you the option of contacting us via a contact form provided on our website. We require the data marked as mandatory on this form in order to allocate and answer your enquiry. Other details can be provided on a voluntary basis. The processing of data for the purpose of contacting our company occurs in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. a of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the basis of your consent given on a voluntary basis.
The personal data that we collect when you use our contact form will be deleted after we have dealt with your enquiry and after the expiry of our obligations to retain data according to fiscal and commercial law.
Once you have granted consent, for example for the purpose of being sent our newsletter or other interesting information from our company, you are entitled to withdraw this consent with effect for the future at any time and without specifying any reason. To do so, you can use the contact form mentioned above or follow the instructions on withdrawing consent provided in our newsletter.

Cookies

This website uses “cookies”. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and enable the analysis of your use of the website. They are able to automatically recognise you next time you visit the website. You can prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. Doing so may, however, prevent you from being able to use all of the functions of the website.

Logging

Every time you access our website, records are produced and processed for statistical purposes. Individual users remain anonymous in these records, which log the following information:

  • Referrer (the page containing the link via which you accessed this website)
  • Search terms (in search engines acting as referrers)
  • Your IP address is evaluated in order to determine the country of origin and the provider
  • Browser, operating system, installed plug-ins and screen resolution
  • How much time you spend on our web pages

The data specified above are processed by us on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR for the following purposes:

  • To guarantee the smooth establishment of a connection with our website
  • To guarantee comfortable and convenient use of our website
  • To evaluate the security and stability of the system
  • For other administrative purposes

We reserve the right to check these data at a later point in time if we become aware of concrete indications of unlawful use of the website. The data will be deleted immediately when they are no longer required in order to fulfil the specified purposes and after six months at the latest.

SSL Encryption

To provide safety for your data, we serve our site using SSL encryption via HTTPS.

Disclosure of data

We generally do not pass on your data to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes without your explicit consent. We only pass on your personal data to third parties when this is permitted [e.g. on the basis of Article 6 GDPR] and/or required by law. In some instances, we use service providers for the legally stipulated order processing of data; our website is therefore hosted by jweiland.net and maintained by the company Freitag! Werbeagentur und Verlag GmbH. Nevertheless, we remain fully responsible for the processing of data. We also use plug-ins from other providers on some of the pages of our website. More information on these plug-ins can be found below.

Liability for our own content
A great deal of care was taken when producing the content of this website. We cannot, however, provide any guarantee for the correctness, completeness and topicality of this content. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on this website according to general legislation.

Liability for links (content of third-party providers)

A distinction must be made between our own content and links to content published by other providers. We have no influence on content published by other providers; the respective providers or operators of these linked third-party websites are responsible for their content.

Rights of data subjects

We hereby inform you that you have the right to receive information on your personal data processed by our company, to correct or delete these data or to restrict the processing or a right to object to the processing and the right to data portability in accordance with Article 15 ff. GDPR and under the circumstances that it defines. In accordance with Article 77 GDPR, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority for data protection if you believe that the processing of your personal data infringes the Regulation. If the processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR or Article 9 paragraph 2 lit. a GDPR (Consent), you additionally have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with no impact on the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent up until you withdraw this consent.

Embedded YouTube videos

Some of the pages on our website contain embedded YouTube videos. The corresponding plug-ins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. Visiting a page with the YouTube plug-in creates a connection to the YouTube servers and YouTube is notified about which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your surfing behaviour with you personally. In order to prevent this, you must log out of your YouTube account before you proceed.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour.

If you have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, such cookies will not be set when you watch YouTube videos, either. However, YouTube also stores non-personal user information in other cookies. You must block the storage of cookies in your browser if you wish to prevent this.

For more information on data privacy on YouTube, please refer to the provider’s data privacy statement at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Google Maps

We use the mapping service Google Maps (API) from Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) on our website, in order to show our location.

If you visit the sub-page on which the Google Maps map is integrated, our website sends various information, including your IP address, to Google in the USA, where is will be stored on their servers. If you have a user account with Google and are logged in at the time of visiting our website, the data will be directly assigned to your account. However, even without a user account, Google will create a use profile about you. This occurs irrespective of whether Google makes a user account available that you have logged in to, or whether no user account exists.

Our transfer of data to Google forms part of our legitimate interest in offering you the map function from Google Maps on our website.

You can prevent the data that we transfer being assigned to your user account by logging out of Google prior to visiting our website. In order to entirely prevent the data transfer to Google, you will need to switch off the JavaScript application in your browser. The map function can then no longer be used.

Further information about Google and the operation of Google Maps can be found here:

Amendments to our data protection provisions

We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this Data Privacy Statement in order to ensure that it constantly complies with the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the Data Privacy Statement, for example in the case of the introduction of new services. The new Data Privacy Statement will then apply next time you visit our website.

Questions

If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, you can contact our Data Protection Officer directly. Our Data Protection Officer and his team are also happy to help in the case of information requests, applications or complaints.
