3. Legal bases

We process personal data based on at least one of the following legal bases:

  • The data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR);
  • Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract (Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR);
  • Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject (Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR);
  • Processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person (Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR);
  • Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR)

In this privacy policy we refer to the respective legal basis of the individual data processing operations.

4. Onward transfer of personal data

We forward personal data to recipients (data processors or other third parties) only to the extent required and only if one of the subsequent conditions are met:

  • the data subject has consented to the data transfer;
  • the onward transfer is required to fulfil a contractual obligation or pre-contractual measure on the request of the data subject;
  • we are obliged by law to make such a transfer;
  • The onward transfer is made on the basis of our legitimate interest or on those of a third party.

5. Third countries

The transfer of personal data to a third country or an international organisation outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) is subject to legal or contractual permission only in accordance with the provisions under Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. It means that pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR an adequacy decision of the EU commission must be present for the respective country, appropriate safeguards for data privacy under Art. 46 GDPR, or Binding Corporate Rules under Art. 47 GDPR do exist. In individual cases, a data transfer may be permitted on the basis of an exception under Art. 49 GDPR.

We may use on our website external services provided by organisations based in the USA. If these services are active, personal data is collected in connection with the provision of the relevant service and may be transferred to and stored on servers in the USA. The European Court of Justice considers the USA to have an inadequate level of data protection. When data is transferred to the US, there is a fundamental risk that the US authorities may access and use the data for surveillance and monitoring purposes without notification and without the possibility of a legal remedy.

6. Rights of data subjects

  • Pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR to request information about your personal data processed by us.

  • Pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data if the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you; the processing is unlawful but you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; you have objected to processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR pending the verification whether our legitimate grounds override your interests;

7. Erasure and restriction of personal data

Unless otherwise provided for in this privacy notice, personal data will be deleted, if these data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed and the deletion does not conflict with statutory retention requirements. In addition, we will erase the personal data processed by us in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR on your request, if the conditions provided therein are met. If personal data are required for other lawful purposes, they will not be erased, but their processing will be restricted in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR.

In case of restriction, the data will not be processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to personal data that must be retained by us for commercial or tax law reasons. For example, data must be kept for 6 years pursuant to Section 257 (1) Nos. 2 and 3 German Commercial Code (HGB) and Section 147 (1) Nos. 2, 3, 5 German Tax Code (AO); data must be kept for 10 years pursuant to Section 257 (1) Nos. 1 and 4 HGB and Section 147 (1) No. 1, 4, 4a AO.

2. Other Google services

The legal basis for the use of the following services are our legitimate interests according to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests are listed below for each service individually.

2.1 Google Web Fonts

This website uses external typesets provided by Google, so-called web fonts. To do this, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache when you visit the website. If your browser does not support this feature, your computer will use a standard font to display the website. This service collects your IP address, which of our websites you have visited and, if necessary, other data required by Google for the provision of the web fonts. The generated information about your use of this website is stored on servers in the USA. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of us or Google.

2.2 Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager in order to manage the website through a single tag management interface. Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means: no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which may collect data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivated at the domain or cookie level, it will remain effective for all tracking tags as far as they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager. Our legitimate interests in the use of Google Tag Manager are the efficient maintenance of our website and the central administration of HTML elements.


VII. Links to social media profiles

On our website we refer with hyperlinks to social media profiles in social networks. When you actively click on a link to such a profile, your browser establishes a direct connection with servers of the respective social media network, whereby the provider obtains knowledge of your visit. If you are simultaneously logged in to the respective social network, the provider can assign the visit to the profile to your user account. In this context, personal data may be processed in the USA. For more information on the processing of personal data, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective social media network. The purpose of linking our website to social media profiles is to increase the visibility of our website. Clicking on a social media link takes place on the basis of your voluntary decision in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. The legal basis for any data transfer to the USA is also your voluntarily given consent according to Art. 49. (1)(a) GDPR.
