General information on data processing

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, we inform you of the legal basis of our data processing. If the legal basis is not specified in the data protection notice, the following applies:

The legal basis for obtaining consent is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR. Art. 7 GDPR. The legal basis for the processing for the fulfillment of our services and the implementation of contractual measures as well as for answering inquiries is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The legal basis for processing for the fulfillment of our legal obligations is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. If the processing of your data is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Data erasure and storage duration

Wir halten uns an die Grundsätze der Datenminimierung gem. Art. 5 Abs. 1 lit. c DSGVO und Speicherbegrenzung gem. Art. 5 Abs. 1 lit. e DSGVO. Wir speichern Ihre personenbezogenen Daten nur so lange, wie dies zur Erreichung der hier genannten Zwecke erforderlich ist oder wie es die vom Gesetzgeber vorgesehenen Aufbewahrungsfristen vorsehen. Nach Wegfall des jeweiligen Zwecks bzw. nach Ablauf dieser Aufbewahrungsfristen, werden die entsprechenden Daten schnellstmöglich gelöscht.

External links

This website may contain links to third-party websites or to other websites under our responsibility. If you follow a link to a website outside our responsibility, please note that these websites have their own data protection information. We accept no responsibility or liability for these third-party websites and their data protection notices. Therefore, before using these websites, please check whether you agree with their data protection declarations.

You can recognize external links either by the fact that they are displayed in a different colour from the rest of the text or underlined. Your cursor will show you external links when you move it over such a link. Only when you click on an external link will your personal data be transferred to the destination of the link. In particular, the operator of the other website will receive your IP address, the time at which you clicked on the link, the page on which you clicked on the link and other information that you can find in the data protection information of the respective provider.

Please also note that individual links may lead to data being transferred outside the European Economic Area. This could give foreign authorities access to your data. You may not have any legal remedies against this data access. If you do not want your personal data to be transferred to the link destination or even exposed to unwanted access by foreign authorities, please do not click on any links.

Rechte der betroffenen Person

As a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR, you have the opportunity to assert various rights. The data subject rights arising from the GDPR are the right of access (Article 15), the right to rectification (Article 16), the right to erasure (Article 17), the right to restriction of processing (Article 18), the right to object (Article 21), the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority and the right to data portability (Article 20).

Right of withdrawal:

Some data processing can only take place with your express consent. You have the option to withdraw your consent at any time. However, this does not affect the lawfulness of data processing up to the point of withdrawal.

Right of objection:

If the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you as the data subject can object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. You also have this right in the case of profiling based on these provisions within the meaning of Art. 4(4) GDPR. If we cannot demonstrate a legitimate interest in the processing that outweighs your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, we will refrain from processing your data after the objection has been made.

If the processing of personal data serves the purpose of direct advertising, you also have the right to object at any time. The same applies to profiling in connection with direct advertising. Here too, we will no longer process personal data as soon as you object.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority:

If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability:

If your data is processed automatically on the basis of consent or fulfillment of a contract, you have the right to receive this data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to request the transfer and provision of the data to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible.

Right of access, rectification and erasure:

You have the right to obtain information about your processed personal data with regard to the purpose of the data processing, the categories, the recipients and the duration of storage. If you have any questions on this topic or other topics relating to personal data, you can of course contact us using the contact details provided in the legal notice.

Right to restriction of processing:

You can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data at any time. To do so, you must fulfill one of the following conditions:

  • You contest the accuracy of the personal data. For the duration of the verification of the accuracy, you have the right to request the restriction of processing.
  • If the processing is unlawful, you can request the restriction of the use of the data as an alternative to erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need the data for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims, you can request the restriction of processing as an alternative to erasure.
  • If you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, your interests and ours will be weighed up. Until this balancing has taken place, you have the right to request the restriction of processing.

Restriction of processing means that, with the exception of storage, personal data may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

Provision of the website (web host)

Our website is hosted by:

Host Europe GmbH
Hansestrasse 111, 51149 Cologne

When you visit our website, we automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files. Your browser automatically transmits this information to our server or to the server of our hosting company.

These are:

  • IP address of the website visitor’s end device
  • Device used
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Operating system of the visitor
  • Browser type and version
  • Name of the retrieved file
  • Time of the server request
  • Amount of data
  • Information on whether the retrieval of the data was successful

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The legal basis for processing this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the technically flawless presentation and optimization of this website.

Instead of hosting this website on our own server, we can also have it hosted on the server of an external service provider (hosting company). In this case, the personal data collected on this website will be stored on the servers of the hosting company. In addition to the data mentioned above, this may include, for example, contact inquiries, contact details, names, website access data, meta and communication data, contract data, and other data generated through a website.

Another legal basis is the purpose of pre-contractual or contractual fulfillment vis-à-vis the data subject (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). In the event that we have engaged a hosting company, there is a contract for data processing with this service provider.

Usage of Local Storage Items, Session Storage Items, and Cookies

Our website uses Local Storage Items, Session Storage Items, and/or Cookies. Local Storage is a mechanism that allows data to be stored within the browser on your device. This data usually includes user preferences, such as the “day” or “night” mode of a website, and remains stored until you manually delete the data. Session Storage is very similar to Local Storage, but the storage duration is only during the current session, meaning until you close the current tab. After that, the Session Storage Items are deleted from your device. Cookies are pieces of information that a web server (server providing web content) stores on your device to identify it. They are either temporary for the duration of a session (session cookies) and deleted after you visit a website or stored permanently (permanent cookies) on your device until you delete them manually or automatic deletion by your web browser occurs.

These objects can also be stored on your device by third-party companies when you visit our site (third-party requests). This allows us as the operator and you as the visitor of this website to use certain services from third parties installed on this website. Examples include processing payment services or displaying videos.

These mechanisms have various applications. They can improve the functionality of a website, control shopping cart functions, increase the security and comfort of website usage, and conduct analyses regarding visitor flows and behavior. Depending on the individual functions, these are to be classified in terms of data protection. If they are necessary for the operation of the website and for providing certain functions (shopping cart function) or are used to optimize the website (e.g., cookies for measuring visitor behavior), their use is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As website operators, we have a legitimate interest in storing Local Storage Items, Session Storage Items, and Cookies for the technically flawless and optimized provision of our services. In all other cases, the storage of Local Storage Items, Session Storage Items, and Cookies only occurs with your explicit consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Soweit Local Storage Item, Session Storage oder Cookies von Drittunternehmen oder zu Analysezwecken eingesetzt werden, informieren wir Sie hierüber im Rahmen dieses Datenschutzhinweises gesondert. Ihre erforderliche Einwilligung wird abgefragt und kann jederzeit widerrufen werden.

Content Management System

A Content Management System enables the creation, editing, organization, and presentation of digital content. We use a Content Management System to create content for our website, allowing us to design a more appealing website.

We base this processing on a legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Our legitimate interest lies in the technically flawless presentation and optimization of the website.


We use the WordPress service on our website. The provider of this service is Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, 94110 San Francisco (CA), USA.

As this service is hosted locally on the web server, no data transfer to third parties occurs.

The service stores the following data in the local or session storage of the browser:

Name: wpEmojiSettingsSupports
Storage Duration: Session
Type: 1st-Party Session Storage
Purpose: Stored by WordPress on the local device

Optimization of presentation

We use tools to optimize the presentation of our website. These tools help, among other things, to display the website in other languages or in a more accessible way for people with disabilities.

Processing only occurs if you explicitly consent to this data processing (via our consent banner on the website). The legal basis for obtaining your consent is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Without your consent, data processing does not occur in the manner described above. If you revoke your consent (e.g., via the consent banner or other options provided on this website), we will cease this data processing. The lawfulness of processing carried out prior to the revocation remains unaffected.
