General Information on Data Processing
2.1 Scope of Personal Data Processing
We process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users regularly takes place only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases where prior consent is not possible for factual reasons and the processing of data is permitted by legal regulations.

2.2 Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data
If we obtain consent from the data subject for processing personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

2.3 Data Deletion and Storage Duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

Our websites use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small data packets and do not cause any damage to your device. These are either stored temporarily (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit ends. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or they are automatically deleted by your web browser. Cookies can originate from us (first-party cookies) or from third-party companies (so-called third-party cookies). Third-party cookies allow the integration of certain services from third-party companies within websites. Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (for example, the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies may be used for the evaluation of user behavior or for advertising purposes. Cookies that are necessary for the execution of the electronic communication process, for the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g., the shopping cart function), or for the optimization of the website (e.g., cookies for measuring web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. We have a legitimate interest in storing necessary cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services. If consent for the storage of cookies and similar recognition technologies has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) TTDSG); the consent can be revoked at any time. You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.

4.2 Consent Management Service Cookiebot
We use the consent management service Cookiebot, provided by Usercentrics A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (Usercentrics). This allows us to obtain and manage the consent of website users for data processing. Processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation (Art. 7(1) GDPR) to which we are subject (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. c GDPR). For this purpose, the following data is processed using cookies: your IP address (the last three digits are set to '0'), date and time of consent, browser information, URL from which the consent was sent. An anonymous, random, and encrypted key about the consent status of the end user is stored as proof of consent. The key and consent status are stored in the browser for 12 months using the "CookieConsent" cookie. This ensures that your cookie preference is retained for subsequent page requests. The key can be used to prove and trace your consent. If you activate the "Bulk Consent" service function to enable consent for multiple websites through a single end-user consent, the service additionally stores a separate, random, unique ID with your consent. If all the following criteria are met, this key will be stored in encrypted form in the third-party cookie "CookieConsentBulkTicket" in your browser: you activate the bulk consent function in the service configuration, you allow third-party cookies via browser settings, you have disabled "Do Not Track" via browser settings, you accept all or at least certain types of cookies when you give consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, provided your inquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

The data you send us via contact inquiries will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed), unless mandatory legal provisions – in particular, legal retention periods – require longer retention.

6. Social Media - Instagram
6.1 Presences on social media platforms

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The specific social networks we use can be found below. No social media elements are integrated into this website. We merely provide links to our social media profiles.If our website includes icons from social media providers such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or LinkedIn, we use them solely for passive linking to the pages of the respective providers. Clicking on these links will direct you away from our website. Data processing on the websites of the social media providers is subject to the privacy policies available there.

6.2 Data processing by social networks
Social networks like Facebook, Instagram, etc., can extensively analyze your user behavior. Visiting our social media profiles triggers the following data protection-relevant processing operations:If you are logged into your social media account and visit our profile, the operator of the social network can track this visit.Additionally, the operator may process your data (e.g., IP address) under certain circumstances even if you are not logged into your account or do not have an account at all. This data is aggregated by the operator into user profiles containing your preferences and interests. These profiles are used for personalized advertising within and outside the respective social media platforms. If you have an account with the social network, personalized advertising may appear on all devices where you are or were logged in. Further processing operations may be conducted by the operators of the social media platforms; we have no control over this. Please refer to the terms of use and privacy policies of the respective social media platforms for details.

6.3 Legal basis
Our presence on social media aims to ensure the broadest possible visibility on the Internet within the meaning of Art. 6 para.1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes conducted by the operators of the social networks may be based on different legal bases, specified by the respective providers.

6.4 Responsible party and rights assertion
When you visit one of our social media profiles (e.g., Facebook), we share responsibility with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during your visit. You can exercise your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability, and complaint) against both us and the operator of the respective social media platform (e.g., Facebook). Despite our joint responsibility with the social media platform operators, we do not have full control over the data processing operations of the platforms. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policies of the respective providers.

6.5 Storage period
The data collected directly by us via our social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request its deletion, revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal provisions - particularly retention periods - remain unaffected. We do not influence the storage period of data collected by social networks. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g., in their privacy policies, see below).We use the following social networks: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn. For corresponding data protection information, please refer to the pages operated by us on those platforms, as well as further information on data protection provided by the respective providers.

7. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files, as well as the processing of your personal data, includes Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR, among others. In the case of explicit consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, data processing also occurs based on Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. Additionally, the data is used for optimizing the website and ensuring the security of our information technology systems. No evaluation of the data for marketing purposes takes place in this context. Our legitimate interest in data processing under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR is based on these purposes.The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. In the case of data collection for the provision of the website, this occurs when the respective session ends. In the case of data storage in log files, this occurs no later than seven days afterward. Extended storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of users are either deleted or anonymized so that attribution to the accessing client is no longer possible. Unless a specific storage period is mentioned in this privacy policy, your personal data remains with us until the purpose of data processing ceases. If you assert a legitimate deletion request or revoke consent for data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible grounds for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial retention periods); in the latter case, deletion occurs after these reasons cease to exist.We use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not considered to have adequate data protection regulations. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that these countries may not guarantee a level of data protection comparable to that of the EU. For example, US companies may be obligated to provide personal data to law enforcement agencies without the ability for you as the data subject to challenge this legally. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, analyze, and permanently store your data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.

8. Your Rights
8.1 Withdrawal of consent for data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent that has already been given at any time. The legality of data processing carried out before the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.8.2 Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authorityIn the event of breaches of the GDPR, you, as the data subject, have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, particularly in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint exists alongside other administrative or judicial remedies.

8.3 Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data that we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, in a common, machine-readable format, and to have it transmitted to yourself or another controller where technically feasible.

8.4 Information, deletion, and correction
Within the framework of applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as, if applicable, the right to correct or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for any further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time.

8.5 Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases: If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. During the verification period, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If the processing of your personal data is unlawful, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion. If we no longer need your personal data but you require it for the exercise, defense, or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion. If you have objected pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, except for storage, these data may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, 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 European Union or a Member State.
