Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those specifically mentioned. We pass your personal data on to third parties only when one of the following cases applies:
• You have given us your express consent to do so
• The processing of this data is necessary to conclude a contract with you
• The processing of this data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation

3. Rights affected
You can exercise at any time the following rights set forth in the GDPR, using the contact details we have provided for our Data Protection Officer:
a) Right of access by the data subject – Art. 15 GDPR
The right of access entitles the data subject to full access to information on the processing of her/his personal data and on other important criteria such as the purposes of such processing and how long the data will be stored. The exceptions to this right apply as set forth in § 34 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG).
b) Right to rectification – Art. 16 GDPR
The right to rectification entitles the data subject to have incorrect personal data that concerns her/him corrected without undue delay.
a) Right to erasure – Art. 17 GDPR
The right to erasure entitles the data subject to have personal data that concerns her/him erased by the data controller without undue delay. However, this is only possible if the personal data concerning her/him are no longer necessary or have been processed illegally, or if consent to such processing has been revoked. The exceptions to this right apply as set forth in § 35 of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
d) Right to restriction of processing – Art. 18 GDPR
The right to restriction of processing entitles the data subject to restrict the further processing of her/his personal data for the time being. Such processing can be restricted above all while other rights that can be exercised by the data subject are being verified.
e) Right to data portability – Art. 20 GDPR
The right to data portability entitles the data subject to receive from the data controller the personal data s/he has provided in a commonly used, machine-readable format in order, for example, to transmit those data to another controller. According to Art. 20 para. 3 sentence 2 GDPR, however, this right does not apply to data processing necessary to perform a task that serves the public interest.
a) Right to object – Art. 21 GDPR
The right to object entitles the data subject to object to the further processing of her/his personal data on grounds relating to her/his particular situation, insofar as the performance of public duties or the existence of public or private interests do not require such processing. According to § 36 of the German Federal Data Protection Act, this right does not apply if a public authority is legally obliged to process the relevant data.
If you have given us your consent to process your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time, effective immediately and for the future.
You may lodge a complaint at any time with the regulatory authority responsible for you. Which regulatory authority is responsible for you depends on which federal state you reside in, what work you do, and the alleged infringement.

8. Use of Google Analytics
If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter: "Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.
Withdrawal of consent
You can stop tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking this link. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This will prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
9. Embedded YouTube/Vimeo videos
We embed videos on some of our web pages. The operators of the corresponding plug-ins are:
• YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA
• Vimeo, LLC, with headquarters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, NY 10011, USA
When you visit a page with the YouTube/Vimeo plug-in, a connection is made to servers operated by the respective provider. The provider is then informed of which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your account with the provider, your surfing behaviour can be associated with you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube/Vimeo account beforehand.
If you have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you need not expect such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. But YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must change your browser settings to block cookies.
For further information on data protection on YouTube, see the provider’s own data protection notice at: https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/
For further information on data protection at Vimeo, see the provider’s own data protection notice at: https://vimeo.com/privacy
10. Social plug-ins
We use social plug-ins on our web pages from the providers listed below. These plug-ins are labelled with the corresponding logo for ease of recognition.
These plug-ins may be used to send information to the service provider, which may include personal data, and the service provider may make use of this information. We prevent the inadvertent and unwanted collection of data and its transmission to the service provider through a 2-click solution. The desired social plug-in must therefore first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only once the plug-in has been deliberately activated can data be collected and transmitted to the respective service provider. We ourselves do not collect any personal data via the social plug-ins or any information on their use.
We have no control over what data an activated plug-in collects and how this data is used by the respective provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be established and that at least the user’s IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that the service provider will try to save cookies on the user’s computer. To find out which specific data is collected and how it is used, please refer to the data protection notice of the respective service provider. Note: If you are logged into Facebook while using our website, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:
11. Changes to our Data Protection Notice

5. Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are saved on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
