General information on data processing
1. Scope of the processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we only process personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functioning website and our content and services. No personal data is collected for other purposes. The consent of users to the processing of their personal data is not required on this website, as obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of data is permitted by legal regulations.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Since the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3. Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
Provision of the website and creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data processing
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected:
Information about the browser type and version used
The operating system of the user
The IP address of the user
Date and time of access
Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal basis for the data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
3. Purpose of the data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place.
These purposes are our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
4. Duration of the storage
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 storage of data in log files, this is the case after one 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.
5. Possibility of objection and removal
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.
Integration of third party services
We use the open-source tool "Matomo" to analyse the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to regularly improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. We also learn about the extent of the reach of our online offer. Matomo is used within the scope of our legitimate interest as the operator of the website. The following data is collected:
Anonymised IP address of the user
Date and time of the query
Title of the accessed page (Page Title)
URL of the accessed page (Page URL)
URL of the page that was called up before the current page (referrer URL)
Screen resolution used
Time in the local user's time zone
Files that have been clicked and downloaded (Download)
Links to an external domain that have been clicked on (outlink)
Page generation time (the time it takes the web server to generate the pages and then download them from the user: Page speed)
Location of the user: country, region, city, approximate latitude and longitude (geolocation)
Main language of the browser used (Accept-Language header)
User agent of the browser used (User Agent Header)
We use Matomo with settings that maximise data protection and thus do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual persons. The settings include that no cookies are set, that we do not create so-called heatmaps or session recordings, and that we only retain the data for 90 days. In addition, this website uses Matomo with the "AnonymizeIP" extension. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, thus excluding the possibility of a direct link to a person. The IP address transmitted by your browser via "Matomo" is not merged with other data collected by us.
Newsletter – Mailchimp
We use Mailchimp from Rocket Science Group (LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA) to provide you with our newsletter.
So that we can inform you about all innovations, we offer the possibility to register for our newsletter. For this registration we need your e-mail address. With this we will then verify via a so-called double opt-in procedure that you have personally entered your email address and that you actually want to receive the newsletter. You will then have the opportunity to unsubscribe from each newsletter. Your data will then also be deleted from Mailchimp.
In addition, Mailchimp saves your IP address and the times of registration and confirmation after you have registered for the newsletter in order to document your consent.
Mailchimp also evaluates performance data, such as email delivery statistics and other communication data. This information is used to send you emails and to enable certain other Mailchimp functions (e.g. evaluation of the newsletter). This in turn enables us to tailor the newsletter to your needs and improve the service.
Mailchimp may also share this data with third parties or collect additional information about you from other sources. This serves to improve the Mailchimp services, but we have no influence on this process.
Mailchimp is an American company and the collected data may also be processed on US servers. Your data is stored there permanently and will only be deleted if you have your contact deleted by us or Mailchimp. We would like to point out that according to the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA.
For all other queries, you can also contact email@example.com directly.

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have rights vis-à-vis the controller. The following are relevant for this website:
1. Right to information
You may request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to you is being processed by us.
If there is such processing, you can request information from the controller about the following:
the purposes for which the personal data are processed;
the categories of personal data which are processed;
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;
the planned duration of the storage of the personal data relating to you or, if specific information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the storage duration;
the existence of a right to rectify or erase personal data concerning you, a right to have processing restricted by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
You have the right to request information on whether personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.
2. Right to restriction of processing
You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions:
if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
the processing is unlawful and you refuse to erase the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;
the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or
if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate grounds of the controller outweigh your grounds.
Where the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, those data may be processed, with the exception of their storage, only 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 substantial public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
3. Right to erasure
a) Obligation to delete
You may request the controller to erase the personal data concerning you without delay and the controller is obliged to erase this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:
The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR.
The personal data concerning you has been processed unlawfully.
The deletion of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
The personal data concerning you was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8(1) GDPR.
b) Information to third parties
If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary
to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Art. 9 (2) (h) and (i) and Art. 9 (3) GDPR;
for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, where the right referred to in Section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing, or
for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
4. Right to information
If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to communicate this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.
5. Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
6. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
7. Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
