Pri­vacy Policy 

Thank you for vis­it­ing our web­site. In this Policy, we would like to inform you about how we handle your data in accord­ance with Art. 13 of the Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR).

The Con­trol­ler for the data pro­cessing oper­a­tions described below is the office named in the imprint.

Usage Data
When you vis­it our web­site, our web serv­er tem­por­ar­ily eval­u­ates usage data for stat­ist­ic­al pur­poses in order to improve the qual­ity of our web­site. This data con­sists of the fol­low­ing data cat­egor­ies:
• — the name and address of the reques­ted con­tent,
• — the date and time of the query,
• — of the trans­ferred data volume,
• — the access status (con­tent trans­ferred, con­tent not found),
• — the descrip­tion of the used web browser and oper­at­ing sys­tem,
• — the refer­ral link, which indic­ates from which page you reached ours,
• — the IP address of the request­ing com­puter, which is shortened in such a way that a per­son­al ref­er­ence can no longer be estab­lished.
The above-men­tioned log data will only be eval­u­ated anonymously.

Data Secur­ity
We take tech­nic­al and organ­iz­a­tion­al meas­ures to pro­tect your data as com­pre­hens­ively as pos­sible from unwanted access. These meas­ures include encryp­tion pro­ced­ures on our web pages. Your data is trans­ferred from your com­puter to our serv­er and vice versa via the inter­net using TLS encryp­tion.
You can usu­ally recog­nize this by the fact that the lock sym­bol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address line begins with https://.

Neces­sary Cook­ies
On our web­site, we use cook­ies which are neces­sary in order for the site to func­tion.
Cook­ies are small text files that can be placed on your com­puter or mobile device by web­sites that you vis­it.
A dis­tinc­tion is made between ses­sion cook­ies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and per­man­ent cook­ies, which are stored bey­ond the indi­vidu­al ses­sion.
We do not use these neces­sary cook­ies for ana­lys­is, track­ing or advert­ising pur­poses.
In some cases, these cook­ies only con­tain inform­a­tion on cer­tain set­tings and can­not be linked to a per­son. They may also be neces­sary to enable user guid­ance, secur­ity and imple­ment­a­tion of the site.
The leg­al basis for using these cook­ies is our legit­im­ate interest accord­ing to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
You can set your browser to inform you about the place­ment of cook­ies. This is in order to make the use of cook­ies trans­par­ent for you.
You can also delete cook­ies or pre­vent the set­ting of new cook­ies at any time by using the appro­pri­ate browser set­tings.
Please note that if you delete cer­tain cook­ies, our web pages may not be dis­played cor­rectly and some func­tions may no longer be available.

Con­tent Deliv­ery Net­work
We use the con­tent deliv­ery net­work (CDN) “Ins­tagram CDN” to prop­erly deliv­er the con­tent of our web­site. Ins­tagram CDN is a ser­vice of Ins­tagram, Inc., 1 Hack­er Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. A CDN helps to provide con­tent of our online ser­vice, in par­tic­u­lar files such as graph­ics or scripts, more quickly with the help of region­ally or inter­na­tion­ally dis­trib­uted serv­ers. When you access this con­tent, you estab­lish a con­nec­tion to serv­ers of Ins­tagram, Inc., whereby your IP address and pos­sibly browser data such as your user agent are trans­mit­ted. This data is pro­cessed solely for the above pur­poses and to main­tain the secur­ity and func­tion­al­ity of Ins­tagram CDN.
We would like to point out that your data col­lec­ted via the ser­vice may be trans­mit­ted and pro­cessed out­side the area of the European Uni­on. In this case, there is a risk that the level of data pro­tec­tion pre­scribed by the GDPR may not be com­plied with and that the enforce­ment of your rights may not be pos­sible or may be dif­fi­cult.
The use of the Con­tent Deliv­ery Net­work is based on our legit­im­ate interests, i.e. interest in a secure and effi­cient pro­vi­sion as well as the optim­isa­tion of our online offer accord­ing to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The spe­cif­ic stor­age peri­od of the pro­cessed data can­not be influ­enced by us, but is determ­ined by Ins­tagram, Inc.
Fur­ther inform­a­tion can be found in the Ins­tagram pri­vacy policy:

For a con­sist­ent appear­ance of our site, we use so-called web fonts, which are provide by MyFonts (MyFonts Inc., 500 Uni­corn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA). When you access a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to dis­play texts and fonts cor­rectly.
Call­ing up our web­sites will lead to down­load­ing con­tents of the third-party pro­viders who provide these func­tions and con­tents. As a res­ult, the third-party pro­vider receives the inform­a­tion that you have vis­ited our site as well as the usage data tech­nic­ally required for this pur­pose.
We have no con­trol on fur­ther data pro­cessing by the third-party pro­vider.
The imple­ment­a­tion is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR to serve our legit­im­ate interest of mak­ing our site as attract­ive and inform­at­ive as pos­sible.
If your browser does not sup­port web fonts, a stand­ard font from your com­puter will be used.
Fur­ther inform­a­tion on MyFonts can be found at

Data Pro­cessors
We trans­fer your data to ser­vice pro­viders who sup­port us in the oper­a­tion of our web­sites and related pro­cesses. These ser­vice pro­viders are usu­ally data pro­cessors with­in the mean­ing of Art. 28 GDPR. Our ser­vice pro­viders are strictly bound by con­tracts and our instructions.

Your rights as a data sub­ject
When pro­cessing your per­son­al data, the GDPR grants you cer­tain rights as a data sub­ject:
Right of access by the data sub­ject (Art. 15 GDPR)
You have the right to obtain con­firm­a­tion as to wheth­er per­son­al data con­cern­ing you are being pro­cessed; if this is the case, you have the right to be informed of this per­son­al data and to receive the inform­a­tion spe­cified in Art. 15 GDPR.
Right to rec­ti­fic­a­tion (Art. 16 GDPR)
You have the right to rec­ti­fic­a­tion of inac­cur­ate per­son­al data con­cern­ing you and, tak­ing into account the pur­poses of the pro­cessing, the right to have incom­plete per­son­al data com­pleted, includ­ing by means of provid­ing a sup­ple­ment­ary state­ment without delay.
Right to eras­ure (Art. 17 GDPR)
You have the right to obtain the eras­ure of per­son­al data con­cern­ing you without undue delay if one of the reas­ons lis­ted in Art. 17 GDPR applies.
Right to restric­tion of pro­cessing (Art. 18 GDPR)
You have the right to request the restric­tion of pro­cessing if one of the con­di­tions lis­ted in Art. 18 GDPR is met, e.g., if you have objec­ted to the pro­cessing, for the dur­a­tion of our exam­in­a­tion.
Right to data port­ab­il­ity (Art. 20 GDPR)
In cer­tain cases, which are lis­ted in detail in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the per­son­al data con­cern­ing you in a struc­tured, com­monly used and machine-read­able format, or to request that this data be trans­ferred to a third party.
Right to with­draw con­sent (Art. 7 GDPR)
If the pro­cessing of data is based on your con­sent, you are entitled to with­draw your con­sent to the use of your per­son­al data at any time in accord­ance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR. Please note that the with­draw­al is only effect­ive for the future. Pro­cessing that took place before the with­draw­al is not affected.
Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data is col­lec­ted on the basis of Art. 6 (1) 1 f GDPR (data pro­cessing for the pur­pose of our legit­im­ate interests) or on the basis of Art. 6 (1) 1 e GDPR (data pro­cessing for the pur­pose of pro­tect­ing pub­lic interests or in the exer­cise of offi­cial author­ity), you have the right to object to the pro­cessing at any time for reas­ons arising from your par­tic­u­lar situ­ation. We will then no longer pro­cess the per­son­al data unless there are com­pel­ling legit­im­ate grounds for the pro­cessing which over­ride your interests, rights and freedoms or if data is still needed for the estab­lish­ment, exer­cise or defence of leg­al claims.
Right to lodge a com­plaint with a super­vis­ory author­ity (Art. 77 GDPR)
Accord­ing to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a com­plaint with a super­vis­ory author­ity if you believe that the pro­cessing of your data viol­ates data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions. This right may be asser­ted in par­tic­u­lar with a super­vis­ory author­ity in the Mem­ber State of your habitu­al res­id­ence, your place of work or the place of the sus­pec­ted infringe­ment.
