Which data is collected in the case of a contact form is evident from the respective contact form. This data is stored and used solely for purposes of answering your enquiry or establishing contact, as well as the associated technical administration.

5) Use of Your Data for Direct Advertising

Advertising by Post

On the basis of our justified interest in personalized direct advertising, we reserve the right, in accordance with article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO [GDPR], to store your forename and surname, your postal address and - to the extent that we have obtained these additional details from you in the context of the contractual relationship - your title, academic degree, your year of birth and the designations of your profession, branch and business, and to use these for sending interesting offers and information on our products by post.

You can reject the storage and use of your data for such purposes at any time by sending a corresponding message to the person/body responsible.

6) Use of Social Media: Videos

Use of YouTube Videos

This website uses the YouTube embedding function for display and reproduction of videos of the provider "YouTube", which belongs to Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

Use is hereby made of the extended data-protection modus, which in keeping with provider details first triggers storage of user information on reproduction of the video(s). If the reproduction of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider "YouTube" deploys cookies to gather information on user behaviour. According to information provided by "YouTube", this serves, amongst other things, to record video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent procedures constituting misuse. If you have logged on with Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account when you click a video. If you do not want the allocation to your profile with YouTube, you must log off before activating the button. Google stores your data (even in cases of users who have not logged on) as user profiles and evaluates these. Such evaluation occurs particularly in accordance with article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO [GDPR] on the basis of the justified interests of Google in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or requirement-oriented design of its website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, although you must contact YouTube in order to exercise this right.

Independent of a reproduction of the embedded videos, with each call-up of this website a connection to the Google network "DoubleClick" is made, which can trigger further data-processing procedures beyond our influence.

Google LLC, which has its registered address in den USA, is certified for the US-European data-protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which guarantees compliance with the data-protection level of standards applicable in the EU.

You can find further information on data protection with "YouTube" in the provider's data-protection statement under: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

7) Rights of Those Affected

7.1 Regarding the processing of your person-specific data, the valid data-protection law grants you, vis-à-vis the person/body responsible, comprehensive rights (to information and intervention), as the person affected, about which we inform you as follows:

  • Right to Information; in accordance with article 15 of DSGVO [GDPR]. In particular you have a right to information about your person-specific data processed by us, the purposes of the processing, the categories of the person-specific data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients with respect to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned period of storage or the criteria determining the period of storage, the existence of a right to correction, deletion, limitation of the processing, objection to the processing, the possibility of lodging complaints with a supervisory authority, the origins of your data, if this was not collected by us from you, the existence of an automated decision-making process including profiling and, if necessary, significant information about the logic involved and the implications of this, as relevant to you, and the sought-after effects of such processing, as well as your right to notification as to which guarantees exist, in accordance with article 46 of DSGVO [GDPR], in cases of passing-on your data in third countries.

  • Right to Correction; in accordance with article 16 of DSGVO [GDPR]. You have a right to immediate correction of incorrect data affecting you and/or to completion of incomplete data of yours stored by us.

  • Right to Deletion; in accordance with article 17 of DSGVO [GDPR]. You have the right to demand deletion of your person-specific data in the event of the existence of the preconditions of article 17, paragraph 1 of DSGVO [GDPR]. This right does not exist, however, particularly if the processing is required for exercising the right to free expression of opinion and information, for fulfilment of a legal obligation, for reasons that are in the public interest, or for enforcement, exercising or defence against legal entitlements.

  • Right to Limitation of Processing; in accordance with article 18 of DSGVO [GDPR]. You have the right to demand limitation of the processing of your person-specific data for as long as the correctness of your data, as contested by you, is being checked, or if you reject deletion of your data on the basis of impermissible data processing and instead demand limitation of the processing of your data, if you need your data for enforcement, exercising or defence of legal entitlements, after we no longer require this data for the initially intended purposes, or if you have raised objection for reasons relating to your special situation, provided it has still not been established whether our justified reasons predominate.

  • Right to Notification; in accordance with article 19 of DSGVO [GDPR]. If you have enforced the right to correction, deletion or limitation of processing vis-à-vis the person/body responsible, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the person-specific data relevant to you has been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or of the limitation on processing, unless this proves to be impossible or would involve a disproportionate level of cost or effort. You have the right to be informed about these recipients.

  • Right to Data Transferability; in accordance with article 20 of DSGVO [GDPR]. You have the right to demand to be sent the person-specific data relating to you that you have provided us with, in a structured, standard and machine-readable format, or to demand its transfer to another responsible person or body, to the extent that this is technically feasible.

  • Right to Revocation of Consent Given, in accordance with article 7, paragraph 3 of DSGVO [GDPR]. You have the right to revoke, at any time and with effect as to the future, your previous consent to the processing of data. In the event of revocation, we will immediately delete the data in question, unless its further processing can be undertaken on a legal basis that permits processing without consent. The legitimacy of the processing undertaken until the time of revocation remains unaffected by the reasons for the revocation of the consent.

  • Right to Complaint; in accordance with article 77 of DSGVO [GDPR]. If you believe that the processing of the person-specific data relevant to you violates DSGVO [GDPR], you have the right - without prejudice to other administrative law or judicial procedure - to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, especially in the member country of your place of residence, your workplace or the location of the presumed violation.

7.2 RIGHT OF OBJECTION

IF, IN THE CONTEXT OF A CONFLICT OF INTERESTS, WE PROCESS YOUR PERSON-SPECIFIC DATA ON THE BASIS OF OUR PREDOMINATING JUSTIFIED INTERESTS, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AT ANY TIME, FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR SPECIAL SITUATION, TO RAISE OBJECTION TO THIS PROCESSING WITH EFFECT AS TO THE FUTURE.

IF YOU MAKE USE OF YOUR RIGHT OF OBJECTION, WE WILL END THE PROCESSING OF THE DATA IN QUESTION. FURTHER PROCESSING REMAINS AN OPTION, HOWEVER, IF WE CAN PROVIDE COMPELLING, PROTECTION-WORTHY REASONS FOR THE PROCESSING THAT TAKE PRIORITY OVER YOUR INTERESTS, BASIC RIGHTS AND FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOM, OR IF THE PROCESSING SERVES THE ENFORCEMENT, EXERCISING OF DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS.

IF YOUR PERSON-SPECIFIC DATA IS PROCESSED BY US FOR PURPOSES OF DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO RAISE OBJECTION, AT ANY TIME, TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSON-SPECIFIC DATA RELATING TO YOU FOR PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING. YOU CAN EXERCISE THE OBJECTION AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.

IF YOU MAKE USE OF YOUR RIGHT OF OBJECTION, WE WILL END THE PROCESSING OF THE DATA IN QUESTION FOR PURPOSES OF DIRECT ADVERTISING.
