Security and protection of your personal data
We see it as our primary task to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data you have provided and to protect it against unauthorised access. We therefore exercise extreme caution and use state-of-the-art safety standards to guarantee maximum protection of your personal data.
As a company under private law, we are subject to the terms of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have taken technical and organisational measures, which ensure that the regulations on data protection are observed by ourselves and our external service providers.
Definition of terms
Legislation determines that personal data must be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject (“lawfulness, fairness and transparency”). In order to guarantee this, we inform you about the individual legal definitions, which are also used in this data privacy statement:
“Personal data” is any piece of information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter the “data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier, such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, psychological, genetic, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
“Processing” is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Restriction of processing
“Restriction of processing” is the marking of saved personal data with the aim of restricting its future processing.
“Profiling” is any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
“Pseudonymisation” is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific person without additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to corresponding technical and organisational measures, which guarantee that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable individual.
A “file system” is every structured collection of personal data, which is accessible according to certain criteria irrespective of whether this collection is kept centralised, decentralised or according to functional or geographic points of view.
“Controller” means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law;
A “contract processor” is an individual or legal entity, authority, institution or other body, which processes data on behalf of the responsible party.
A “recipient” is an individual or legal entity, authority, institution or other body to whom personal data is disclosed, irrespective of whether it is a third party or not. Authorities who possibly receive personal data within the scope of a specific investigation according to the Union law or the law of the member states do not count as recipients; processing of this data by the stated authorities takes place in accordance with the valid data protection regulations according to the purposes of processing.
A “third party” is an individual or legal entity, authority, institution or other body, except the data subject, the responsible party, the contract processor and the persons authorised to process personal data under the direct responsibility of the responsible party or the contract processor.
“Consent” by the data subject is every voluntary declaration of intention for the certain case given in a clear and informed manner in the form of a declaration or another clear confirmatory action, with which the data subject makes it clear that they agree to processing of the respective personal data.
Legality of processing
Processing of personal data is only legitimate if there is a legal basis for processing. The legal basis for processing according to Article 6 sec. 1 lit. a – f GDPR could be especially:

(4) Right to correction
You have the right to obtain from us the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you without undue delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
(5) Right to deletion ("right to be forgotten")
You have the right to ask the responsible party to delete the personal data concerned immediately and we are obliged to delete this personal data immediately, provided one of the following reasons apply:
The personal data is no longer required for the purposes it was collected for or processed otherwise.
The data subject revokes their consent, upon which processing as per Article 6 sec. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 sec. 2 lit. a GDPR was based, and there is no other legal basis for processing. The data subject lodges an appeal as per Art. 21 sec. 1 GDPR against processing and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or the data subject lodges an appeal as per Art. 21 sec. 2 GDPR against processing. The personal data was processed unlawfully. The deletion of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation according to Union law or the law of member states the responsible party is subject to. The personal data was collected with regards to services offered by the information company as per Art. 8 sec. 1 GDPR.
If the responsible party has published the personal data and is obligated as per sec. 1 GDPR to delete it, then it shall take appropriate measures, including technical support – whilst taking into consideration the available technology and costs of implementation – to inform parties responsible for processing this data that you, as the person concerned, have asked that all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data are deleted.
The right to deletion does not apply when processing is required:
if processing is necessary to exercise the right to free expression of opinion and information or to fulfil a legal obligation, which takes place for processing according to Union law or the law of the member states the responsible party is subject to, or to perform a task that is in the interest of the public or to exercise a public authority, which has been transferred to the responsible party due to public interest reasons in the area of public health according to Article 9 sec. 2 lit. h and i as well as Article 9 sec. 3 GDPR; for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes according to Article 89 section 1 GDPR if the right stated in section 1 is expected to make the achievement of the goals of processing impossible or seriously impair them, or to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims.
(6) Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions exists:
The accuracy of personal data is disputed by the data subject and for a period that allows the responsible party to check the accuracy of personal data, processing is illegal and the data subject rejects the deletion of personal data and, instead, requests restriction of the use of personal data; the responsible party no longer requests the personal data for the purposes of processing but the data subject requires it to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims or if the data subject has lodged an appeal against processing according to Article 21 sec. 1 GDPR, as long as it is not yet certain whether the justified reasons of the responsible party outweigh those of the data subject.
If the processing of the personal data has been restricted, then this data may be processed – apart from storing it – only with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another individual or legal person or for reasons of important public interest to the Union or a member state.
In order to enforce the right to restriction of processing, the data subject can contact us at any time under the above-mentioned contact data.
(7) Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and the right to transmit that data to another controller without hindrance by the responsible party to whom the personal data was provided, if:
Processing is based on consent as per Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 sec. 2 lit. a GDPR or a contract as per Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. d GDPR and processing is carried out using automated procedures.
When exercising the right to data portability according to sec. 1, you have a further right to insist that the personal data concerned is transmitted directly from one responsible party to another responsible party, provided this is technically possible. Exercising the right to data portability does not affect the right to deletion ("right to be forgotten"). The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data, which is needed to perform a task, which is in the public interest or which was transferred to the responsible party in order to exercise an official authority.
(8) Right to object
You also have the right, at any time with future effect and for reasons relating to your particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art. 6, sec. 1 e) or f), GDPR, including profiling based on these provisions.

If we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing with future effect, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for the purposes of direct advertising the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You can exercise your right to appeal by contacting the respective responsible party.
(9) Automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling
You have the right to not be subjected to exclusively automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal impact on you or impairs you considerably in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision is required for the conclusion of fulfilment of a contract between you and the responsible party, is permitted based on legal regulations of the Union or member states, which the responsible party is subject to and if these legal regulations contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or with the explicit consent of the data subject.
