General Information on the Legal Basis for 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 third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that no data protection level comparable to that of the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are required to disclose personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. It cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) will process, analyze and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in specific cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
IF DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 PARA. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION, INCLUDING PROFILING BASED ON THOSE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING SERVES THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 PARA. 1 GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH ADVERTISING, INCLUDING PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING.

In the event of infringements 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.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

YouTube with enhanced privacy mode
This website embeds videos from the YouTube website. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited
("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not
store any information about visitors to this website before they view the video. However, the enhanced privacy mode
does not necessarily exclude the sharing of data with YouTube partners. For example, YouTube - regardless of whether
you watch a video or not - establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.
Once you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube's servers is established. This informs the
YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube
to directly associate your browsing behavior with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your
Furthermore, after starting a video, YouTube may store various cookies on your device or use similar recognition technologies (such as device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website.
This information is used, among other things, to capture video statistics, improve user-friendliness, and prevent fraud.
If you start a YouTube video, additional data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no control.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offerings. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If appropriate consent has been obtained, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user's device (such as device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
