"Processing" means any process or series of processes carried out with or without the help of automated processes in connection with personal data, such as collecting, recording, organizing, arranging, storing, adapting or changing, reading out, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or any other form of making available, matching or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.

"Responsible" is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

3. What data is collected/processed?

a) Ease of use of our website
When you visit our website, the following data is collected and stored by our server:
- Browser and operating system used,
- If appropriate, the website from which you access our website
- Date/time of your visit to our website,
- Your IP address,
- Your internet provider

This data is required to be able to show you our website at all, to improve the content of our website and to ensure the long-term functionality of our website.

It is not possible for us to identify you personally using this data alone. For this we would also need the data stored by third parties, in particular the data stored by your internet provider, since they know, which specific person was provided with the stored IP address at the stored visit time. However, your Internet provider is generally not authorized to share this data with us. Only in the event of an attack on our systems via your IP address would we possibly forward the stored data to the law enforcement authorities, who can then determine your identity using the data from your internet provider.

Our website also uses so-called cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the internet browser itself or by the internet browser on the user's computer system. If a user calls up a website, a cookie can be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string that enables the browser to be clearly identified when the website is called up again. By using cookies, we can provide you with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time in the settings of your internet browser. You can delete cookies that have already been saved at any time via the settings in your internet browser.

b) Use of our contact form
If you contact us via the contact form on our website, the personal data you provide in the contact form will be collected and stored by our company.

This processing serves the purpose of further communication with you. The legal basis for the processing is the consent you gave when you sent the contact form (Art. 6, Para. 1, S. 1, lit. a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent to us at any time (e.g. by email or letter). This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us before the GDPR came into force. Please note that the revocation only applies to the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by your revocation.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they have been collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form, this is the case when the respective communication with you has ended. The communication ends when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified. If contact is made in connection with the conclusion of a contract, the law (tax code, commercial code, etc.) may result in further retention periods.

c) Email/Telephone

If you contact us via email, we will process the personal data you provide in your email or in our telephone call for the purpose of further communication with you.

The legal basis for the processing of the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. If the contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, lit. b) GDPR.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they had been collected. This is the case for the personal data sent by e-mail or telephone when the respective communication with you has ended. The communication ends when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified. If contact is made in connection with the conclusion of a contract, the law (tax code, commercial code, etc.) may result in further retention periods.

5. Sharing of Data

The personal data will only be passed on to third parties with your express consent - unless otherwise expressly regulated in this data protection declaration. The only exceptions to this are statutory disclosure requirements and - if necessary - disclosure to service providers commissioned by us, such as tax consultants, lawyers and/or auditors. We will always oblige service providers commissioned by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the applicable data protection regulations, insofar as such an obligation does not already exist by law.

6. Third-party providers/social media plug-ins (Facebook, YouTube, google analytics etc.)

a) Facebook

We have integrated components of the social networks Facebook and Instagram on our website. The operating company of Instagram and Facebook is Meta Platforms Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland is responsible for the processing of personal data if a person concerned lives outside the USA or Canada. Each time you visit one of the individual pages of our website on which an Instagram or Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, your Internet browser is automatically prompted by the respective Instagram or Facebook component to download and display the corresponding component from Facebook or Instagram. A complete overview of all plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical process, Meta receives information about which specific page of our website you are visiting. If you are logged into Facebook or Instagram at the same time, Meta recognizes which specific subpage of our website you are visiting each time you visit our website. This information is collected by the component and assigned to your account by Meta. If such a transmission is not desired, you can prevent this transmission by logging out of your Instagram or Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Meta, which can be accessed at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Meta. It is also explained there which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. The same applies to Instagram at https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875.

b) YouTube

We have integrated components of the video platform YouTube on our website. The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Each time you visit one of the individual pages of our website on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, your Internet browser is automatically prompted to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website you are visiting. Furthermore, YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that you have visited our website if you are logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google in this way, you can prevent this transmission by logging out of your YouTube account before accessing our website.The data protection regulations published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

c) Google Analytics

We have integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the elicitation, collection and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising. The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. You can read about what cookies are under point 4 above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to process data for the purpose to transmit the online analysis to Google. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of data such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements. The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

As described above, you can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies and delete cookies that have already been set. You also have the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, you must download and install a browser add-on from the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is evaluated by Google as a contradiction. If your information technology system (PC, etc.) is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, you must reinstall the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.

Further information and Google's applicable data protection regulations can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

d) Google Fonts

We use external fonts, Google Fonts, on our website. Google Fonts is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. These web fonts are integrated by calling a server, usually a Google server in the USA. This transmits to the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the end device of the visitor to this website is also stored by Google. For more information, see Google's privacy policy, which you can access here:
