General Information on the Legal Bases of Data Processing on this Website
Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
We use tools from companies based in the USA or other countries outside the EU that may not have a comparable level of data protection. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. Please note that these countries may not guarantee a data protection level equivalent to that of the EU. For example, US companies may be required to disclose personal data to security authorities without the possibility of legal recourse for affected individuals. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (such as intelligence agencies) may process, analyze, and permanently store data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke already given consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation data processing remains unaffected by the revocation.

The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection statement. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising, or defending legal claims (objection according to Article 21(1) GDPR).
If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection according to Article 21(2) GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, but you oppose the deletion of the data and instead request the restriction of their use.

This website includes features of the Instagram service, which are provided by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
When the social media element is active, a direct connection is established between your device and the Instagram server. As a result, Instagram receives information about your visit to this website.
If you are logged into your Instagram account, you can link the content of this website to your Instagram profile by clicking on the Instagram button. This allows Instagram to associate your visit to this website with your user account. We would like to point out that as the provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram.

If no consent has been obtained, the use of the service is based on our legitimate interest in the most comprehensive visibility in social media.

If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require your email address and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the provided email address and that you consent to receiving the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or will only be collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not disclose it to third parties.
The processing of data entered into the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke the consent you have given for the storage of data, email address, and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example by clicking on the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The lawfulness of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
The data you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter or the purpose for which the data was collected no longer applies. We reserve the right to delete or block email addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion in accordance with our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Data stored with us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
After unsubscribing from the newsletter distribution list, your email address may be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary, to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your and our interest in complying with legal requirements for sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not time-limited. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
We use the services of MailChimp for sending newsletters. MailChimp is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. When you enter data for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. email address), this data is stored on MailChimp's servers in the USA. With the help of MailChimp, we can analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the email (so-called web-beacon) connects to the servers of MailChimp in the USA. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients. If you do not want any analysis by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly in our services. The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of MailChimp after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the member area) remains unaffected by this. The provider of Mailchimp and thus the recipient of the data is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The transfer of your personal data to a third country such as the USA only occurs on a case-by-case basis, on the basis of an order processing agreement concluded with MailChimp, in accordance with standard contractual clauses agreed with Mailchimp and other security measures permitted by the GDPR, which ensure the security of the processing of your personal data with a level of protection identical to that in the EU. The processing of data processed in the context of sending newsletters is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You have the right to object your consent at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
