(2) When using the website, so-called cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk in relation to the browser you are using and which provide the party setting the cookie (in this case, us) with certain information. Cookies cannot execute programmes or transmit viruses to your computer. They are only used here to make the website in general more user-friendly and effective.

8. social media and integration of services 

We use websites in social networks to communicate with customers, interested parties and users and to be able to inform them about us.

It is possible that user data may also be processed outside the European Union. This could result in risks for users because, for example, the enforceability of their own rights could be more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they thereby undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.

Furthermore, user data may be processed for analysis purposes. In this way, profiles can be created from the usage behaviour and the interests of the users derived from this. These profiles can be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that are likely to correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies may be stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour, the users' interests and/or also the length of stay are stored.

The processing of the users' personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing the users and communicating with the users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f.) DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the networks for consent to the prescribed data processing, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a.).

Furthermore, we also use content or service offers of third-party providers within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f.) DSGVO) in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos.

In the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the respective providers. Only the providers have access to the relevant user data and can directly take appropriate measures and provide concrete information.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the opt-out options, please refer to the information of the providers linked below.

- Facebook (Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland).

10. Liability for contents

The contents of our pages were created with greatest care. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness and up-to-dateness of the content. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with the general laws pursuant to § 7 para. 1 TMG. However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the point in time at which a concrete infringement of the law becomes known. If we become aware of any such infringements, we will remove the relevant content immediately.

11. Liability for links

Our pages may contain links to external third-party websites over whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognisable at the time of linking. However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete indications of a legal violation. If we become aware of any infringements of the law, we will remove such links immediately.

12. Data security

We secure our website and other systems through appropriate technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. However, despite regular checks, complete protection against all dangers is not possible.

Our website uses the industry standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for encryption. This ensures the confidentiality of your personal information over the Internet. You can see whether encrypted transmission is taking place by the closed key/lock symbol in your browser display.

13. Passing on of data

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties,

- if you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) DSGVO;

- if the disclosure is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) DSGVO;

- if we are legally obliged to pass on the data within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 c) DSGVO;

- if the disclosure of the data is in the public interest as defined in Art. 6 Para. 1 e) DSGVO or;

- if the disclosure of the data is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO, unless your interests in the protection of your data override these interests.

16 Duration of storage of personal data

Your data will be stored by us for as long as it is needed for the respective purposes on which the processing is based. Beyond that, we only store data insofar as we are legally obliged to do so, e.g. due to statutory retention obligations.

17. Information on the right to object

An objection to the processing of personal data concerning you, based on Article 6 (1) (e) (data processing for public interest) or (f) (data processing for the protection of legitimate interests based on a balance of interests) is possible at any time in accordance with Article 21 DSGVO. In the event of an objection, the personal data will no longer be processed unless compelling legitimate grounds for the processing are demonstrated which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

Please address your objection to the e-mail address datenschutz[at]

18. Information on the right of withdrawal
