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

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations require your explicit consent. You can withdraw your consent given in the past at any time. To do this, it is sufficient to send us an informal email. Any withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of data processing prior to the said withdrawal of consent.

Right to object to the collection of personal data in specific cases, as well as in the case of direct marketing (GDPR Section 21)

Whenever data are processed on the basis of GDPR Section 6, para. 1 sub. e or sub. f, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal data; this also includes profiling based on those provisions. For the applicable legal basis for data processing please consult this Data Protection Declaration. In the event that you withdraw your consent, we will no longer process the respective personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or data processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (right to object in accordance with GDPR Section 21, para. 1).

Where your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes (right to object in accordance with GDPR Section 21, paras. 2 and 3).

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of any violation of the GDPR, each data subject shall 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 place of the alleged infringement. The right to complaint shall exist without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the data concerning you that we are processing by automated means on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract, in a commonly used machine-readable format. Should you require a direct transmission of the said data to another controller, this shall be subject to technical feasibility.

SSL or TLS encryption

For safety reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential information, e.g. in orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site owners, this site uses SSL/TLS encryption. A connection is encrypted if the address showing in your browser changes from http:// to https:// and a padlock icon appears in the address bar.

Whenever SSL or TLS is activated, the data you send us cannot be accessed by third parties.

Access, blocking, erasure and rectification

Under the applicable legal provisions, you have the right of access, at any time and free of cost, to the personal data that have been stored, including their source and recipient, as well as the purpose of data processing or, as the case may be, the right to rectification, blocking or erasure of the said data. If you have any further questions concerning personal data, please feel free to contact us at any time under the address given in the Imprint.

Right to restriction of data processing

You have the right to request a restriction of processing of your personal data. Please feel free to contact us in this regard at any time, under the address given in the Imprint. This right to restriction of data processing shall exist in the following cases:

  • In the event that you dispute the correctness of the personal data we have collected, we will, as a rule, need a certain period of time to verify this. During this period, you have the right to request a restriction of processing of your personal data.
  • Provided that your personal data have been, or are being, processed in an unlawful way, you can request a restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • Provided that we no longer need your personal data, but you need them for the exercise, defence or establishment of legal claims, you have the right to obtain a restriction of data processing instead of erasure of your personal data.
  • In the event that you have filed an objection to processing in accordance with GDPR Section 21, para. 1, it is necessary to balance your interests and our interests. As long as it has not been established whose interests are overriding, you have the right to request a restriction of processing of your personal data.

Where processing of your personal data has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State..

Right to object to advertising emails

We hereby object to the use of contact data published in the context of the imprint obligations for the purpose of sending us advertising and other information materials that have not been explicitly requested.

Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies that analyse your browsing behaviour) are stored, they are described in a separate section of this Data Protection Declaration.

Google will use this information, on behalf of the website owner, to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on website activities, and provide further services to the website owner that are connected with website use and internet use. The IP address communicated by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other Google data.

Browser plug-in
