The companies shall provide the respective requested company with the necessary information from their area of activity. The companies shall inform each other without delay of the legal positions asserted by data subjects and provide each other with all information necessary to respond to requests for information.

We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) as well as all other applicable legal provisions.

In general, we collect the following information:
The specific data collection and processing can be found in the individual processing operations (Part B) as well as in the respective provisions of our contractual documents.
We only transfer your personal data to third parties in the following cases:
In principle, we process and store your data only for the duration of our business relationship, including the initiation and execution of the contract as well as the statutory retention periods.
If the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations and rights, it is regularly deleted, unless its – temporary – further processing is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes listed above for an overriding legitimate interest.
Insofar as individual processing of personal data requires other deletion periods, these are mentioned in the description of the individual processing operations under section B.
Data is only transferred to bodies in third countries (states outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) if it is necessary for the execution of an order/contract from or with you, if it is required by law (e.g. reporting obligations under tax law), if appropriate data protection levels exist or if you have given us your consent.
The processing of your data in a third country may also be carried out in connection with the involvement of service providers as part of commissioned processing. If there is no EU Commission decision on an adequate level of data protection for the country in question, we will ensure through appropriate contracts that your rights and freedoms are adequately protected and guaranteed. For more detailed information, please refer to the individual descriptions of the processing operations under section B.
Information on the appropriate or adequate safeguards and on the possibility of obtaining a copy from you can be obtained from the Data Protection Officer upon request.
Upon request, we will provide you with written or electronic information as to whether and which of your personal data is stored with us (Art. 15 GDPR) and we will check your entries for deletion (Art. 17 GDPR), correction (Art. 16 GDPR), restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) and transfer (Art. 20 GDPR) of your personal data and execute them if the conditions are met.

A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found under the following link https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Service/Anschriften/anschriften_table.html

We will then in any case no longer process the personal data for the purposes of direct marketing or related profiling and furthermore not for other purposes, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. In this case, you must provide reasons for the objection that arise from your particular situation.
If possible, you should send your objection to the following contact address:
The same applies if you have given your consent to the collection or use of personal data and wish to revoke it. You can revoke such consent at any time with effect for the future by e-mail or letter.

The data collection and processing of the log file information is based on our legitimate interest and for the purpose of securing our online offer. The log file information is stored anonymously after the session has ended.
In the interest of communication with customers and interested parties, we offer a contact form on our website where you can request information about our products or contact us in general. In addition to the voluntary information and the content of your message, we require the following information from you:
Form of address
We need this information to process your request, to contact you correctly and to send you an answer. Requests received via the contact form are stored as emails and regularly checked to see whether data can be deleted. Should data no longer be required in the context of a relationship with a customer or interested party, or should the customer have a contrary interest, we will delete the data concerned not later than after 180 days, provided that this does not conflict with statutory retention obligations.

On our websites we use a version of Matomo which is implemented on our own servers. This is an open source analysis software for the purpose of statistical evaluation of visitor access. Based on this evaluation, we particularly wish to track which of our sites are accessed and how often, but not by whom they are accessed. The implementation of Matomo on our servers does not use any cookies. We only store anonymised user data for collecting general statistical values, without comprehensively analysing user behaviour. A comprehensive analysis of user behaviour is also not possible due to the anonymised collection of the data. The IP address transmitted in the server log-in is anonymised on our server before it is transmitted to the Matomo installation and replaced by a random IP address. It is not possible to trace the IP address using the anonymised data, as time entries are randomised by the Matomo installation.
The purpose of the processing is the statistical analysis of user behaviour to optimise the functionality of our websites. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of our website.
The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.
We only transfer your personal data to third parties if you have consented to the transfer, if the transfer is necessary for the execution of the offers or services that you wish to make use of, or if a legal authority for transfer exists and the protection of your legitimate interests is guaranteed.
With the exception of the use of Google Fonts and Google Maps, no personal data collected by us will be processed in a third country. The provider of these services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google may collect information (including personal data) and process it. It cannot be ruled out that Google also transmits the information to a server in a third country, including the USA. The prevailing opinion is that the level of data protection in the USA does not currently reach the standard applicable in the EU, which is why there is currently no adequacy decision by the European Commission or suitable guarantees to ensure data protection.
Our company has no influence on this and also no conclusive information about which data Google actually collects and processes. According to Google, the following data (including personal data) may be collected and processed:
If you possess a Google account and have logged in there while you are on our websites, Google can store and possibly assign the processed information according to your account settings. According to information from Google, activities on other websites and in apps are possibly connected with your personal data, depending on the account settings, in order to improve Google's service and advertising provided by Google. You will find more information on this at https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de
You can prevent a direct connection of these data by logging out from your Google account or also changing the pertinent account settings in your Google account.
In addition, you can change your Cookie settings (e.g. erase or block Cookies).

You will find further information in the Google privacy statement, which you can access here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de
We use the services of "Google Maps" from the Google provider to incorporate the maps of this service on our websites.
By incorporation of these services, which are located on Google servers, information on the user (including the IP address) is processed by Google so that the contents inquired can be transmitted to the browser. In addition, Google can also use so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). With these cookies and web beacons, information such as visitors to websites or information about the users' devices can be recorded and analysed. The information generated by cookies and web beacons about the use of our websites (including the users' IP addresses) are transmitted to a Google server, possibly in the USA or other third countries, and stored there. This information can be forwarded to Google's contracting partners by Google.
By incorporating Google Maps, we pursue the purpose of making our locations easier to find and of giving you a better overview of our offers.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is Art. 6 subsection 1 lit. a) GDPR, insofar as we have requested your consent for the use of the Google Maps services. Otherwise, your personal data are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in an efficient, economical and user-friendly service (Art. 6 subsection 1 lit f) GDPR.
Detailed information on Google Maps can be found on the websites https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform and under https://policies.google.com/privacy
Further information on data processing by Google in the course of the use of Google services can be found in the section on "General information on Google services".
In particular, the following data are processed by Google Maps:
For the use of Google Maps, we have concluded a contract for commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR with Google. Google processes the data by our order, in order to portray and to trigger the services on our websites. Google can possibly transmit this information to third parties to the extent provided for by law or to the extent that third parties process these data by order of Google.
As far as the legal basis for the processing by Google Maps is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 subsection 1 lit. f) GDPR, you have a right of objection according to Art. 21 GDPR. You can notify us of your objection by mail or e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, please refer to section 8 (Revocation and objection).
The processed information is only stored for a long as is necessary for the planned purpose or has been prescribed by law. Provision of the personal data is not mandatory and has not been prescribed by law or by contract, nor is it necessary for conclusion of a contract.
We run social media platforms with the following providers:
For these information services, we have recourse to the providers' technical platform and services. We point out that you use our appearances on social media platforms and their functions under your own responsibility. This in particular applies to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing and rating). When you visit our websites, the providers of the social media platforms collect, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your terminal device in the form of cookies.
This information is used in order to provide us as the operators of the account with statistical information about interaction with us.
The data recorded about you in this connection is processed by the platforms and, if applicable, also transmitted to countries outside the European Union, in particular the USA. According to their statements, all the aforementioned providers comply with a suitable level of data protection equivalent to that of the former EU-US Privacy Shield and we have concluded the standard data protection clauses with the enterprises. We do not know how the social media platforms make use of the data from your visit to our account and interactions with our contributions for their own purposes, how long these data are stored and whether data are forwarded to third parties. The data processing can also differ according to whether you are registered and logged in with the social network or visit the site as a non-registered and/or non-logged in user. If you access a contribution or the account, the IP address allocated to your terminal device is transmitted to the provider of the social media platform. If you are currently logged in as a user, the way you have moved on the net can be pursued via cookies on your terminal device. Buttons embedded in the websites make it possible for the platforms to record your visits to these websites and to assign them to your profile. Based on these data, contents or advertising matching you can be offered. If you wish to avoid this, you should log out or deactivate the "remain logged-in" function, delete the cookies in existence on your device and restart your browser.
In addition, we as the providers of an information service only process data from your use of our service which you provide to us and which require an interaction. If, for example, you ask a question which we can only answer by e-mail, we will store your information in accordance with the general principles of our data processing, which we describe in this privacy declaration. The legal basis for the processing of your data on the social media platform is Art. 6 subsection 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
To exercise your rights as a data subject, you can contact both us and also the provider of the social media platform. To the extent that a party is not responsible for replying or has to get the information from the other party, we or the provider will then forward your inquiry to the partner in question. For questions about profiling and processing of your data when you use the website, please contact the operator of the social media platform directly. For questions on the processing of your interaction with us on our site, write to the contact data which we have stated above.
The providers describe the information which the social media platform contains and how it is used in their privacy statements (link, see above). There, you will also find information about possibilities of contact and the possible settings for adverts.
