Revo­ca­tion of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing trans­ac­tions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal noti­fi­ca­tion via e‑mail. This shall be without prej­u­dice to the lawful­ness of any data collec­tion that occurred prior to your revo­ca­tion.

Right to object to the collec­tion of data in special cases; right to object to direct adver­tising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING.

Right to log a complaint with the compe­tent super­vi­sory agency

In the event of viola­tions of the GDPR, data subjects are enti­tled to log a complaint with a super­vi­sory agency, in partic­ular in the member state where they usually main­tain their domi­cile, place of work or at the place where the alleged viola­tion occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regard­less of any other admin­is­tra­tive or court proceed­ings avail­able as legal recourses.

Right to data porta­bility

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­mat­i­cally process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine read­able format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cally feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryp­tion

For secu­rity reasons and to protect the trans­mis­sion of confi­den­tial content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website oper­ator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­tion programme. You can recog­nise an encrypted connec­tion by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from „http://“ to „https://“ and also by the appear­ance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­tion is acti­vated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Infor­ma­tion about, recti­fi­ca­tion and erad­i­ca­tion of data

Within the scope of the applic­able statu­tory provi­sions, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­tion about your archived personal data, their source and recip­i­ents as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data recti­fied or erad­i­cated. If you have ques­tions about this subject matter or any other ques­tions about personal data, please do not hesi­tate to contact us at any time at the address provided in section „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.“

Right to demand processing restric­tions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­tion of restric­tions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in section „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.“ The right to demand restric­tion of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correct­ness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this inves­ti­ga­tion is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the erad­i­ca­tion of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­tle­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the processing of your personal data instead of its erad­i­ca­tion.
  • If you have raised an objec­tion pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mined whose inter­ests prevail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the excep­tion of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­tle­ments or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal enti­ties or for impor­tant public interest reasons cited by the Euro­pean Union or a member state of the EU.
