Data is processed for initiating contact on the basis of your consent, which has been given voluntarily according to Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR.
We have provided you with an e-mail address so that you can contact us with any questions you may have. Please specify a valid e-mail address and a name with which we can address you. You can provide other information on a voluntary basis.
To process your requests by e-mail, the data you have provided (your e-mail address and possibly also your name and telephone number) will be stored by us. We delete any data gathered for this purpose after storage is no longer required or we limit the processing of this data if there are statutory requirements to retain it.
You are of course free to share your personal data by other means (e. g., by phone or letter).
According to Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right to ask us for a confirmation as to whether we are processing your personal data. If this is the case, you have a right to obtain information about this personal data and to obtain the following information:
• The purposes of the processing
• The categories of personal data being processed
• The recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data has been or will be disclosed, in particular in case of recipients in third countries or in case of international organisations as recipients
• Where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if this is not possible, the criteria used for determining this period
• Information about the existence of a right to rectify or erase your personal data, to restrict our processing or to object to such processing
• Information about the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
• In cases where the personal data was not collected from you, all available information as to the source of your data
• Information about whether automated decision-making exists, including profiling pursuant to Art. 22 (1) and (4) GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the affected person
According to Art. 16 GDPR, you can request that we promptly rectify inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you also have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
Art. 17 GDPR grants you the right to demand that we promptly erase your personal data.
According to Art. 18 GDPR, you have the right to request restriction of processing by us under certain conditions.
According to Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data that you have provided us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to transmit this data to another responsible party without hindrance from us.
According to Art. 7 (3) GDPR, you have the right to withdraw at any time your consent previously given to us. This means that we cannot continue the data processing based on this consent in the future.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your usual place of residence or employment or the location of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you violates this regulation.
Right to object
If your personal data is processed based on legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, provided that there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which will be implemented by us without the specification of any particular situation.
If you would like to exercise your right of revocation or objection, please send an e-mail to our e-mail adress given above.

Use of Vimeo Plugins
We use service provider Vimeo for functions such as the integration of videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC, headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.
We use plugins from service provider Vimeo on some of our internet pages. If you call up one of the Internet pages on our website that is outfitted with such a plugin – “Videoportrait”, for example – a connection to the Vimeo servers is established and the plugin is displayed. This causes the Vimeo server to be informed regarding which of our Internet pages you visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo will assign this information to your personal user account. When you use the plugin by clicking the start button of a video, for example, the information that you did this is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and by deleting the corresponding Vimeo cookies.
To make our website more attractive to visitors and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called 'cookies' on our website. These are small text files that are stored on your device and through which the body that places the cookie (in this case us) receives certain information.
So-called transient cookies are automatically deleted after you close your browser or log out. These include session cookies in particular, which store a so-called session ID, with the help of which different requests from your browser can be assigned to a common session. This allows your browser to be recognised again when you return to our website.
Persistent cookies remain on your device and allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit. These persistent cookies have the advantage of automatically detecting which inputs and settings you made so that you do not have to make them again. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time. The duration may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies at any time by using the security settings on your browser.
The data processed by the cookies is necessary for the exercise of our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of third parties (Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR).
Cookies are automatically accepted in the settings of most browsers. However, you can activate the feature that informs you when a cookie has been placed and allows you to approve them individually. If you completely block cookies, the functionality of our website may be restricted.
During your website visit, we use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether individual pages of our website are transmitted in encrypted form by the “closed” depiction of the key or lock symbol in the bottom status bar of your browser.
We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional tampering, partial or complete loss, destruction and unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
