Data protection officer: Nataliya Petrov

Inquiries on the subject of data protection as well as the assertion of data subject rights (cf. below in this data protection declaration) should be sent to the attention of our data protection officer at the above address.

3. on which legal basis can the data processing on our web pages take place?

If we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you as the data subject are a party, Article 6(1)(b) DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject as the controller, Article 6(1)(c) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of you or of another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Article 6(1)(d) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of us or a third party and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms as a data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

The relevant legal basis for the respective processing can be found in the corresponding section of this data protection declaration.

4) Which technical access data/server log files are collected and stored when using our offer?

We (or our web space provider) collect and store your data about each access to the offer (so-called server log files or system and usage data). The access data includes:

Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, your operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The legal basis for the storage of this data and the log files is Article 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO.

We use the log data only for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DS-GVO. An evaluation for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after one (1) month at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Therefore, there is no possibility for you to object.

5) How do we handle your personal data when you use our offer?

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.

We only collect, use and pass on personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection and use of the data.

Specific uses

We use the data you provide exclusively for the following purposes:

- Telephone contact for clarification of wishes and suggestions
- Technical administration of our offer
- Answering of your inquiries in other respects
- Statistical surveys concerning our offer


6. contacting

When contacting us (for example, by contact form or e-mail), your information will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted via the contact form or in the course of sending an e-mail is Article 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO. If the contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR.

The processing of personal data from the contact serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The data from the contact form of our offer are transmitted directly to us by e-mail. Further data will not be collected.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

Right of objection
The user has the possibility at any time to object to the processing of his personal data to the above address. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data stored in the course of the contact will be deleted in this case.

7. who gets my data?

We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract, if we or the third party have a justified interest in passing on the data or if we have your consent to do so.

In addition, data may be transferred to third parties if we are required to do so by law or by an enforceable official or court order. We would like to point out that we are entitled to provide information about data in individual cases by order of the competent authority, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, for the prevention of danger by the police authorities of the federal states, for the fulfilment of the statutory tasks of the federal and state authorities for the protection of the constitution, the Federal Intelligence Service or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service or for the enforcement of intellectual property rights. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(c) DS-GVO.

8. are data transferred to a third country?

We process your data in Germany. As a rule, we do not transfer your data to other countries or third countries (countries that are neither members of the European Union nor the European Economic Area) or to international organisations.

A data transfer to third countries (i.e. countries which are neither members of the European Union nor of the European Economic Area) may exceptionally take place, as far as this is necessary for the execution of services towards you, is required by law or you have given us your consent.

Please note that not all third countries have a level of data protection that is recognised as adequate by the European Commission. For data transfers to third countries that do not have an adequate level of data protection, we ensure before the transfer that either an adequate level of data protection exists at the recipient (e.g. through the agreement of so-called EU standard contractual clauses of the European Union with the recipient) or an express consent of our users is available. Please use the contact information above for this purpose.

You can obtain a copy of the specific applicable or agreed regulations for ensuring the appropriate level of data protection from us. Please use the details in the Contact Us section for this purpose.

9. what security measures have we taken to protect your data?

We maintain current technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data from dangers during data transmissions and from third parties gaining knowledge. These are adapted to the current state of the art.

The databases of our offer are protected by physical and technical measures as well as procedural measures that limit access to the information to specifically authorized persons in accordance with this privacy policy. The information system of our offer is located behind a software firewall to prevent access from other networks connected to the Internet. Only employees and agents who need this information to perform a specific task are granted access to personally identifiable information. Employees and agents are trained in security and privacy practices.

Standard SSL encryption technology is used for the collection and transmission of data via our website.

In the case of communication by e-mail, complete data security cannot be guaranteed.

10. use of cookies: what does this mean for my data?

So-called cookies are used when you use our website.

Cookies are small files that enable specific, device-related information to be stored on your access device (PC, smartphone or similar). On the one hand, they serve the user-friendliness of websites and thus the users (e.g. storage of login data). On the other hand, they serve to collect statistical data on website use and to be able to analyse it for the purpose of improving the offer. You can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option to restrict or completely prevent the storage of cookies. However, we would like to point out that the use and in particular the user comfort of our websites will be limited without cookies.

10.1 What types of cookies do we use?

  • Transient cookies (temporary use)

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

  • Persistent cookies (time-limited use)

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

  • Third-Party Cookies (from third party providers)

You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all the functions of this website.

  • Flash cookies (permanent use)

The Flash cookies used are not collected by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in. These store the necessary data regardless of the browser you are using and have no automatic expiration date. If you do not want Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on, e.g. "Better Privacy" for Mozilla Firefox ( or Adobe Flash Killer Cookie for Google Chrome.

  • Tracking/Web Bugs

Some of our services also use so-called tracking or web bugs or tracking pixels. These are usually only 1×1 pixel measuring code snippets, which are able to identify and recognize your browser type via the browser ID - the individual fingerprint of your browser. This allows the service provider to see when and how many users have accessed the pixel, or if and when an email was opened or a website was visited.

To prevent web bugs on our websites, you can use tools such as webwasher, bugnosys or AdBlock. To prevent web bugs in our newsletter, please set your mail program so that no HTML is displayed in messages. Web bugs are also prevented if you read your emails offline. Without your explicit consent, we will not use web bugs to collect unnoticed personal data about you or to transmit such data to third-party providers and marketing platforms.

10.2 On what legal basis and for what purposes are cookies used?

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary (essential) cookies is Section 25 (2) no. 2 TTDSG (for access to your terminal device), Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (for the cookie-based processing that follows access to your terminal device via our systems).

The purpose of using technically essential cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these, it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after a page change.

The right to object is excluded for technically absolutely necessary cookies, as these are absolutely necessary in order to be able to display our website and its contents and to provide you with the functionalities of the website.

Cookies are used for analysis and marketing purposes in order to improve the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus constantly optimise our offer.

The legal basis for this cookie-based processing is § 25 para. 1 p. 1 TTDSG (for access to your terminal device), Art 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO (for the cookie-based processing that takes place via our systems following access to your terminal device). Until you have given your consent, such cookies that are not necessary for the function of our websites will not be set. For information on how to exercise your right to withdraw cookie consent, please refer to the relevant sections describing the services that use third-party cookies.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

12. integration of third party services: what happens with my data?

We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored on and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos, the data mentioned in paragraph 3 are transmitted. We have no influence on this data transmission. Cookies are also set when the videos are integrated in extended data protection mode. We have therefore initially only integrated videos into our website as placeholders. Only when you actively click on the videos[alternatively: press the slide switch for reloading and displaying the video as third-party content], a connection to the YouTube servers is established and cookies are set on your computer.

By visiting the website, the third-party provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data mentioned in section 3 of this declaration may be transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether this third-party provider provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to the third-party provider, this data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment to your profile with the third-party provider, you must log out before activating the button.

The third-party provider stores this data as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the provision of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

Right of objection
You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective third-party provider to exercise this right. If you do not wish usage data to be transmitted to the aforementioned third-party providers, please do not activate the display of the video or other third-party content embedded on our websites.

Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the third-party provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers communicated below. There you will also receive further information about your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.

13.3 Right to information
