1. Cookies


On our websites, we use cookies. Cookies are small text files that can be stored and read on your device. There are two types of cookies: session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. Cookies may contain data that allows recognition of the device you are using. However, some cookies only contain information about specific settings that cannot be used to identify individuals.

In terms of function, a distinction is made between technically necessary and unnecessary cookies and technologies.

We only use technically necessary cookies on our websites (session cookies and permanent cookies). These are cookies required for the operation of our website and its functions. It is possible to disable these cookies in your browser. In this case, the flawless functioning of our website cannot be guaranteed.

The processing is based on §25 Abs.2 Nr.2 TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b (Contractual Performance) and f (Legitimate Interest) GDPR, and in the interest of enabling you to use the website with its essential functions.

We do not use technically unnecessary cookies or tracking technologies, nor do we set them through third-party media providers.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies and prevent the placement of new cookies at any time through the respective browser settings. Please note that our websites may not be displayed optimally, and some functions may no longer be available technically if you choose to do so.

2. User Rights

Your Rights as a User

When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a website user:

1. Right to Information (Art. 15 GDPR):

You have the right to request confirmation of whether personal data concerning you is being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to information about this personal data and the details listed in Art. 15 GDPR.

2. Right to Correction and Deletion (Art. 16 and 17 GDPR):

You have the right to promptly request the correction of any inaccurate personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data.

You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be deleted without undue delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g., if the data is no longer needed for the purposes pursued or if there is no longer a legal obligation to retain it.

3. Right to Restrict Processing (Art. 18 GDPR):

You have the right to request the restriction of processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 GDPR is met, e.g., if you have objected to processing, for the duration of any review.

4. Right to Data Portability (Art. 20 GDPR):

In certain cases, as outlined in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, or to request the transmission of this data to a third party.

5. Right to Object (Art. 21 GDPR):

If data is processed based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f (data processing to protect legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will no longer process the personal data, unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

6. Right to Lodge a Complaint with a Supervisory Authority

Under Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection regulations. The right to lodge a complaint can be exercised in particular with a supervisory authority in the Member State of your residence, workplace, or the place of the alleged violation.

Google Maps

This page does not embed Google Maps on the website; it only provides a link.
