§ 2 Definitions

The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European regulatory body when the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: "GDPR") was issued. The data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand. To ensure this, the most important terms are explained below:

a) Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an on-line identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

(b) 'data subject' means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the data controller.

(c) processing shall mean any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or other forms of provision, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

(d) 'profiling' means any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular with a view to analysing or predicting aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, residence or change of location of that natural person.

e) Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need to obtain additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

(f) The controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, body or agency which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his or her designation may be provided for by Union law or by the law of the Member States.

(g) 'processor' means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

(h) recipient means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation carried out pursuant to Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be regarded as recipients.

(i) third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.


§ 3 Provision of the website and creation of log files

(1) If you use the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we automatically collect the following data and information from the computer system of the calling computer each time you access the website:

  • The IP address of the user
  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • The user's operating system
  • The Internet service provider of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user's system accesses the website
  • Websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website
  • Content of the calls (specific pages)
  • Amount of data transmitted in each case
  • Search engines used
  • Names of downloaded files

The data is stored in the log files of our server. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

When using this general data, we do not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. The data is only evaluated statistically.

(2) The legal basis for the temporary storage of log files is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence f) GDPR.

(3) The temporary storage of data by the system is necessary in order

  • to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
  • to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it
  • to ensure the functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website
  • provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack

These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

(4) The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected - in this case at the end of the use process.

In the case of data storage in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses are deleted or made anonymous, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

(5) The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website, therefore there is no possibility of objection.


§ 4 Use of cookies

(1) This website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files which, as soon as you visit a website, are sent from a web server to your browser and stored locally on your end device (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) and stored on your computer, providing the user (i.e. us) with certain information. Cookies do not cause any damage to the computer and do not contain viruses. Each cookie contains a characteristic string of characters (so-called cookie ID), which enables the browser to be clearly identified when the website is called up again.

(2) We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly, e.g. to make it easier for you to fill in forms or to make multimedia content accessible to you if necessary. Some elements of our website require the calling browser to be able to be identified even after a page change. We also use cookies on our website which enable us to analyse your surfing behaviour.

(3) When you access our website, you will be informed about the use of cookies and your consent to the processing of personal data used in this context will be obtained. In this context, reference is also made to this data protection declaration.

(4) The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR if the user has given his consent.

(5) The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for you. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these it is necessary that the browser is recognised even after a change of page. Cookies are used in particular to make the website more customer-friendly and safer, in particular to collect usage-related information, such as frequency of use and number of users of the pages and as well as behaviour patterns of page usage. The user data collected by technically necessary cookies is not used to create user profiles. The purpose of using technically not necessary cookies is to improve the quality of our website and its contents. The analysis cookies enable us to find out how the website is used and thus to constantly optimise our offer. This information is also used to recognize you automatically when you visit the website again with the same terminal device and to make navigation easier for you.

(6) Permanent cookies remain stored even when the browser session is closed and can be called up again when the site is visited again. The cookies are stored on your computer and transmitted from there to our site. You therefore have full control over the use of cookies. If you do not want data collection via cookies, you can set your browser via the menu under "Settings" so that you are informed about the setting of cookies or you can generally exclude the setting of cookies or delete cookies individually. However, please note that if you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited. Insofar as session cookies are concerned, they will be automatically deleted after leaving the website.


§ 5 E-mail contact

(1) You can also send us an e-mail. In this case the personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also agree that we may contact you via this communication channel in order to answer your request. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for processing the conversation.

(2) The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f) GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1S. 1 b) GDPR.

(3) We will, of course, use the data from your e-mail enquiries exclusively for the purpose for which you provide us with the information when contacting us. The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. This is also in our legitimate interest.

4. Data shall be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. For personal data sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the execution of a contract, the data will be deleted after the expiry of the statutory (commercial or tax) storage periods required for this purpose.

(5) You may revoke your consent to the processing of the e-mail and its content at any time. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued. Please contact the person responsible in accordance with § 1 for this purpose. However, this possibility of revocation only exists insofar as the e-mail contact does not serve the preparation or execution of a contract.


§ 6 Newsletter

(1) With your consent, you can subscribe to our free newsletter, with which we inform you about our current interesting offers. The advertised goods and services are named in the declaration of consent. We use the so-called double-opt-in procedure to subscribe to our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within [24 hours], your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store your IP address and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to provide evidence of your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data. The newsletter is also sent out due to the sale of goods or services: If you purchase goods or services from us and leave your e-mail address, we may subsequently use it to send you a newsletter. In such a case, the newsletter serves exclusively for direct advertising for our own similar goods or services.

(2) Your e-mail address is the only mandatory information for sending the newsletter. The provision of further data [name] is voluntary and is used to address you personally.

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when the newsletter is sent. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which represent one-pixel image files stored on our website. For the evaluation we link the data [log files] and the web beacons mentioned in § 3 with your e-mail address and an individual ID. We use the data thus obtained to create a user profile in order to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. In doing so, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them and conclude from this your personal interests. We link this data to actions you take on our website. This is also where our legitimate interest lies in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The legal basis for tracking is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. This data is evaluated by our marketing service provider. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by informing us via another contact channel. The information is stored for as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously. Such tracking is also not possible if you have deactivated the display of images in your e-mail program by default. In this case, the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all functions. If you have the images displayed manually, the above-mentioned tracking will take place.

(3) For sending the newsletter we use the Newsletter2Go of the provider Newsletter2Go GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin, For this purpose, the previously described logged data (IP address, registration/confirmation time) and the email address are saved for the purpose of sending and evaluating the newsletter as well as for optimising our own services or for economic purposes. However, Newsletter2Go does not use the data to write to the recipient itself or pass it on to other third parties. You can find further information about Newsletter2Go at information is stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter.

(4) The legal basis for the processing of data after registration for the newsletter by the user is, if consent has been given, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR. The legal basis for sending the newsletter to existing customers is Art. 7 para. 3 UWG (Act against Unfair Competition). The use of the dispatch service provider Newsletter2Go, the performance of statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure are based on our legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.

(5) The collection of the user's e-mail address serves the purpose of sending the newsletter. The collection of other personal data (IP address, time of registration/confirmation) as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used. The possible provision of further data serves only to be able to address you personally in the newsletter.

(6) The data shall be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. Your e-mail address, as well as other personal data, will therefore be stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. The other personal data collected during the registration process (IP address, time of registration/confirmation) are usually deleted after a period of seven days.

(7) You can cancel the receipt of our newsletters at any time and thus revoke your consent by clicking on the "Unsubscribe newsletter" field in our newsletter subscriber or by sending us a message to the contact details given in the imprint. This also enables you to revoke your consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process (IP address, time of registration/confirmation). With the revocation of the newsletter we delete your data at Newsletter2Go and the statistical analyses at the same time. A separate revocation of the dispatch by Newsletter2Go or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible.


§ 7 SSL encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption when transmitting confidential or personal data. This encryption is used, for example, for payment transactions and for enquiries to us via this website. In order to ensure that this encryption is actually active, this must be monitored by you. The status of the encryption can be seen from the browser line, which changes from "http://" to [https://] in the case of encryption. In the case of encryption, your data cannot be read by third parties. If the encryption is not active, please contact us in confidence via another contact option.


§ 8 Passing on personal data to third parties

1. links to external websites

This website contains links to external sites. We are responsible for our own content. We have no influence on the contents of external links and are therefore not responsible for them, in particular we do not adopt their contents as our own. If you are directed to an external site, the data protection declaration provided there applies. If you notice any illegal activities or content on this site, please feel free to inform us of this. In this case we will check the content and react accordingly (notice and take down procedure).


2. rented server space

We would like to point out that we use a rented server space of the provider Macciato Media solutions, Kirchmann & Ströbel GbR, Heissen 50, 88267 Vogt, By visiting the website, the provider of the server space therefore receives the following information:

  • Browser type
  • Operating system used,
  • the origin address,
  • the time of the server request and
  • the host name of the accessing computer

These are automatically saved by it in so-called server log files (see § 3), which your browser automatically transmits.


3. embedding Vimeo videos

(1) We have integrated Vimeo videos into our online offer, which are stored on and can be played directly from our website. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC with headquarters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011. Clicking on a video establishes a connection to the Vimeo servers in the USA. The following data is transmitted

  • Internet pages visited
  • IP address, browser information
  • Date and time of your request;
  • Original page;
  • Cookies that can be used to uniquely identify your browser

For more information on the data collected by Vimeo, please click on the following link:

If you are logged in to Vimeo as a member, your data will be directly associated with your account. Vimeo also allows you to rate or share videos, for example, if you log in to Vimeo or other social networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.) with your user account.

(2) The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter a) GDPR.

(3) The integration of the videos serves to make the website more vivid for the user. Vimeo stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its website to meet your needs. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular to provide advertising that is tailored to your needs and to inform other users about your activities on our website.

(4) You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.

(5) The duration of the storage depends on the storage periods in Vimeo.

(6) You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Vimeo to exercise this right. The same applies to the right of withdrawal. If you do not wish the data to be collected, simply log out of your user account or do not click on the Vimeo button.

(7) Further information on data processing and references to data protection by Vimeo can be found at


4. Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts on our website. These are the "Google fonts" of the company Google Inc. For the European area the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services.

You do not need to log in or set a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested via the Google domains and According to Google the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google Account, you don't need to worry about your Google Account information being submitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google records the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this information securely. We will be looking into the details of how this data is stored.

What are Google Fonts?

Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a directory of over 800 fonts that Google makes available to its users free of charge.

Many of these fonts are published under the SIL Open Font License, while others are published under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses.

Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?

With Google Fonts we can use fonts on our own website, but we don't have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important component to keep the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimised for the web and this saves data volume and is a great advantage especially for use with mobile devices. When you visit our site, the low file size ensures a fast loading time. Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can visually distort some texts or entire web pages. Thanks to the fast Content Delivery Network (CDN) there are no cross-platform problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all common browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So we use Google Fonts to make our entire online service as beautiful and consistent as possible.

Which data is stored by Google?

When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. This external call transfers data to the Google servers. In this way Google also recognises that you or your IP address are visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was developed to reduce the use, storage and collection of end user data to what is necessary for the proper provision of fonts. By the way, API stands for "Application Programming Interface" and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software sector.

Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests at Google and is therefore protected. Through the collected usage figures, Google can determine how well each font is received. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in the BigQuery database of Google Fonts. Entrepreneurs and developers use the Google web service BigQuery to examine and move large amounts of data.

However, it should also be noted that every Google Font request automatically sends information such as language settings, IP address, browser version, browser screen resolution and browser name to the Google servers. Whether this data is also stored cannot be clearly determined or is not clearly communicated by Google.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to use the fonts using a Google style sheet. A style sheet is a style template that allows you to easily and quickly change, for example, the design or font of a web page.

The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google thus pursues the goal of fundamentally improving the loading time of websites. When millions of web pages link to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and reappear immediately on all other web pages visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage and improve design.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is called up. To delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at In this case you only prevent data storage if you do not visit our site.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unlimited access to all fonts. This means we have unlimited access to a sea of fonts and can thus get the best out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other questions at Although Google addresses privacy issues there, it does not provide really detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really detailed information from Google about stored data.

You can also find out which data is generally collected by Google and what this data is used for at


§ 9 Web analysis by Google Analytics

(1) On our website we use the service of Google Inc. (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. The software sets a cookie on your computer (for cookies see § 4). If individual pages of our website are called up, the following data is stored:

  • Two bytes of the IP address of the user's calling system
  • The accessed website
  • Entrance pages, exit pages,
  • The time spent on the website and the drop-out rate
  • The frequency of accessing the website
  • Country and regional origin, language, browser, operating system, screen resolution, use of Flash or Java
  • search engines used and keywords used

The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the user is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". The software is set up in such a way that the IP addresses are not stored completely, but only in abbreviated form. In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. However, the IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

(2) The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f) GDPR. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield,

(3) Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information on the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, we also have a legitimate interest in processing the data. By making the IP address anonymous, the interest of the users in their protection of personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

(4) The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our recording purposes. In our case this is after 180 days.

(5) The cookies used are stored on your computer and transmitted by it to our site. If you do not agree with the collection and evaluation of the usage data, you can prevent this by adjusting your browser software accordingly, by deactivating or restricting the use of cookies. Cookies already stored can be deleted at any time. However, in this case it is possible that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link. The current link is: ""

(6) If you visit our website with your mobile device, you can also object to its use here by deactivating Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics. In this case, a cookie will be set in your browser, which tells Google to stop tracking.

(7) The Third Party Provider is Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. For further information, please refer to the User Terms at, the Privacy Policy at and the Privacy Policy at

6. right to data transferability

(1) You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you which you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have this data communicated to another controller, without interference from the controller to whom the personal data has been communicated, provided that

  • the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR and
  • the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures.

(2) In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

(3) The right to data transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

(4) In order to exercise the right to data transfer, the data subject may at any time contact the controller.


7. right of objection

(1) You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

(2) The controller shall cease processing personal data relating to you unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing is carried out in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

(3) Where personal data relating to you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it relates to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, your personal data will no longer be processed for those purposes.

(4) In the context of the use of Information Society services, and without prejudice to Directive 2002/58/EC, you have the possibility of exercising your right of objection by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

(5) In order to exercise the right of opposition, the data subject may contact the controller directly.


8. right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place on the basis of your consent until revocation. You can contact the person responsible for this.


9. automated decision in individual cases including profiling

(1) You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects in relation to you or significantly affects you in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision

  • is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the person responsible,
  • is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the person responsible is subject and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
  • is made with your explict consent.

(2) However, such decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 paragraph 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 paragraph 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

(3) In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible person shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of any person from the responsible person, to express his or her point of view and to challenge the decision.

(4) If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact the controller.


10. right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place of the suspected infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the DSGVO. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
