If you wish to exercise the right to rectification, you may contact our data protection officer or the controller at any time.

However, the right to be forgotten does not apply if there is an overriding right to freedom of expression or freedom of information, the storage of data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation (e.g., retention obligations), archiving purposes conflict with the deletion or the storage serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your data by the controller if the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, you refuse the erasure of your personal data and instead request restriction of the processing, if the necessity for the purpose of processing ceases to apply or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1), as long as it has not yet been determined whether legitimate grounds on our part override yours.


7.5 The right to data portability (Article 20 DS-GVO).

You have the right to the portability of your personal data, which you have provided to our company in a common format, so that you can have your personal data forwarded to another responsible party without hindrance, provided, for example, that consent has been given on your part and the processing is carried out by means of an automated procedure.


7.6 The right to object (Art. 21 DS-GVO).

You have the right to object at any time to the collection, processing or use of your personal data for purposes of direct marketing or market and opinion research, as well as general business-like data processing, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms.

7.7 Right of appeal to the data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 DS-GVO in conjunction with § 19 BDSG).

8. Legal basis of processing

When processing personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Article 6 (1), sentence 1 a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 b) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. This provision also covers processing operations that are 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, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 c) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities as well as in the analysis, optimization and maintenance of the security of our online offer.


9. Transfer of data to third parties

We generally do not sell or lend user data. A transfer to third parties beyond the scope described in this privacy policy only takes place if this is necessary for the processing of the respective requested service.

We only transfer data if there is a legal obligation to do so. This is the case if government institutions (e.g. law enforcement agencies) request information in writing or if a court order exists.

A transfer of personal data to so-called third countries outside the EU / EEA area does not take place.


10. Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data and possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We hereby point out that the provision of personal data in certain cases (e.g. tax regulations) is required by law or may result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on/of the contractual partner). For example, it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that the data subject/contractual partner must provide his/her personal data so that his/her request (e.g. order) can be processed by us at all. An obligation to provide personal data arises primarily when a contract is concluded. Should no

personal data be provided in this case, the contract with the data subject cannot be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject may contact our data protection officer or the controller. The data protection officer or the controller will then inform the data subject whether the provision of the required personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract and whether an obligation arises from the concerns of the data subject to provide the personal data or what the consequences are for the data subject of not providing the requested data.


11. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling in our business relationships.
