There­fore, there is no means of cre­at­ing per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able user pro­files with this data. Data about indi­vid­u­als or indi­vid­ual behav­iour is not col­lect­ed in this data set.

The reten­tion peri­od of 90 days is need­ed as it can occa­sion­al­ly come to pass, that you could con­tact us again regard­ing the same top­ic, in which event we need access to our pre­vi­ous cor­re­spon­dence. Our expe­ri­ence has been that, gen­er­al­ly, repeat requests do not occur after more than 90 days.

3. Data Pro­cess­ing for Con­tact Per­sons

We use per­son­al data for mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es, par­tic­u­lar­ly for adver­tis­ing via email, tele­phone and post.

5. Cook­ies

Cook­ies are small pieces of data that are stored on a user’s com­put­er. They make it pos­si­ble for infor­ma­tion to be assessed over a defined time peri­od and allow the user’s device to be iden­ti­fied. For an improved user expe­ri­ence and opti­mized per­for­mance, we use per­ma­nent cook­ies. Fur­ther­more, we also use so called “ses­sion cook­ies” that are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed when you close your brows­er. You can set up your brows­er in such a way that you are informed when cook­ies are being placed. This will make the use of cook­ies more trans­par­ent for you.

6. Google Ana­lyt­ics
6.1. Pur­pose for the Data Pro­cess­ing / Legal Basis

For the needs-based lay­out of our web­site, we cre­ate pseu­do­nymised user pro­files with the help of Google Ana­lyt­ics. Google Ana­lyt­ics use so called “cook­ies”, or text data, that are stored on your com­put­er and that enable an analy­sis of the use of our web­site. The data that is gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie regard­ing your use of our web­site is, gen­er­al­ly, trans­ferred to a Google serv­er in the USA and is stored there. As we have acti­vat­ed IP-anonymi­sa­tion on this web­site, your IP address­es are abbre­vi­at­ed by Google with­in mem­ber states of the Euro­pean Union or in oth­er states par­ty to Euro­pean Eco­nom­ic Area agree­ment. In excep­tion­al cir­cum­stances, the full IP-address could be trans­ferred to the Google servers in the USA and to be abbre­vi­at­ed there. Google will use this infor­ma­tion to assess your use of our web­site, to assem­ble reports on web­site activ­i­ty, and to pro­vide us with oth­er ser­vices con­nect­ed to the use of our web­site and the use of con­nect­ed inter­net ser­vices. The legal basis for the data pro­cess­ing is Art 6 Para 1 f) GDPR. We have a legit­i­mate inter­est in gath­er­ing infor­ma­tion on the use of our web­site.
You can object to the cre­ation of a pseu­do­nymized user pro­file at any time. To do so, you have mul­ti­ple options:
1.) To object to web analy­sis through Google Ana­lyt­ics you can place an Opt-Out-Cook­ie, which will show Google that your data can­not be used or stored for web analy­sis. Please note, that this solu­tion only works for as long as your brows­er stores the Opt-Out-Cook­ie. If you wish to place an Opt-Out-Cook­ie, please click here.
2.) You can also hin­der the stor­age of the cook­ies required to cre­ate a pro­file through appro­pri­ate set­tings in your brows­er-soft­ware.
3.) Depend­ing on the brows­er that you use, you may have the option of installing a Brows­er-Plu­g­in, which pre­vents track­ing. For this please click here and install the Brows­er-Plu­g­in available.

6.2. Stor­age Dura­tion / Cri­te­ria for Deter­min­ing the Stor­age Dura­tion

We do not store any per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able user profiles.

7. Google Web­fonts

To opti­cal­ly improve the dis­play of infor­ma­tion on this site, Google Web­fonts (http://www.google.com/webfonts/) are used. The web­fonts are trans­ferred when the page is called up into the cache of the brows­er in order to be able to use it for the pre­sen­ta­tion. If the brows­er does not sup­port Google Web fonts or pro­hibits access, the text will be dis­played in a stan­dard font. When the page is accessed, no cook­ies are set for the web­site vis­i­tor. The data sub­mit­ted in con­nec­tion with the page view is sent to resource-spe­cif­ic domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com. You will not be asso­ci­at­ed with any infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed or used in con­nec­tion with the par­al­lel use of authen­ti­cat­ed Google ser­vices such as Gmail. The legal basis for the data trans­mis­sion to Google is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The oper­a­tor of the home­page has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the use of Google Web­fonts for visu­al­ly enhanced presentation.

You can set your brows­er so that the fonts are not loaded by the Google servers (for exam­ple, by installing add-ons such as NoScript or Ghostery for Fire­fox). For infor­ma­tion about the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy of Google Web­fonts, please vis­it: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq#Privacy For gen­er­al pri­va­cy infor­ma­tion, vis­it the Google Pri­va­cy Cen­ter at: http://www.google.com/intl/ en-us / privacy /

8.  Google Maps

On our web­site we embed map ser­vices that are not stored on our servers. Call­ing up our pages with embed­ded map ser­vices results in the con­tent of the third par­ty provider pro­vid­ing the map ser­vices being reloaded. This pro­vides the third-par­ty provider with the infor­ma­tion that you have accessed our site and the terms of use tech­ni­cal­ly required in this con­text.
We have no influ­ence on the fur­ther data agree­ment by the third par­ty provider. The embed­ding takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR and in the inter­est of enabling you to use map services.

9. Encryp­tion

In order to pro­tect your data against unau­tho­rized access, we imple­ment an encryp­tion process on most sites. The details trans­mit­ted from your device to our ser­vice, and vice ver­sa, are secured using a 256 Bit SSL-encryp­tion (Secure Sock­et Lay­er). This is demon­strat­ed by the sym­bol of the lock on the sta­tus strip of your brows­er, and as the address line begins with https://. We only do not encrypt infor­ma­tion that is pub­licly available.

10. No Oblig­a­tion to Pro­vide Per­son­al Data

Pro­vid­ed that the pre­vi­ous sec­tions have not stat­ed oth­er­wise, the pro­vi­sion of per­son­al data is nei­ther legal­ly nor con­trac­tu­al­ly required, nor is it nec­es­sary to con­clude a con­tract. You are under no oblig­a­tion to pro­vide per­son­al data, pro­vid­ed there is no require­ment to the con­trary. If you do not make your per­son­al data avail­able to us, the result will be that we can­not answer your con­tact request, or that you can­not take part in an appli­ca­tion process or anoth­er event.

11. Your Rights as a Data Sub­ject

In accor­dance with Art 15 GDPR, you have the right to request a copy of the per­son­al infor­ma­tion that we hold about you, free of charge.
Fur­ther­more, when the legal require­ments have been met, you have a right to the cor­rec­tion (Art 16 GDPR), dele­tion (Art 17 GDPR) and restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing (Art 18 GDPR) of your per­son­al data.

If the data pro­cess­ing occurs on the basis of Art 6 Para 1 e) or f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the pro­cess­ing of your data under Art 21 GDPR. If you object to the pro­cess­ing of your data, the pro­cess­ing will cease, unless the data con­troller has pro­tect­ed oblig­a­tory rea­sons to con­tin­ue the process­es, such that they out­weigh the inter­ests of the data sub­ject to object.
If you have made the processed data avail­able your­self, you have a right to data porta­bil­i­ty under Art 20 GDPR.
If the data pro­cess­ing occurs on the basis of con­sent in accor­dance with Art 6 Para 1 a) or Art 9 Para 2 a), you have the right to revoke this con­sent at any time with imme­di­ate effect, but with no effect on the legal­i­ty of the pro­cess­ing up to that point.
For any of the above-named cas­es, or in the event of ques­tions or com­plaints, please con­tact our Data Pro­tec­tion Offi­cer in writ­ing or via email.
Fur­ther­more, you have a right to com­plain to a Data Pro­tec­tion Super­vi­so­ry Author­i­ty. You may con­tact the Data Pro­tec­tion Super­vi­so­ry Author­i­ty of the state in which you live in, or the state in which the data con­troller is based.
