Data Privacy is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting you and respecting your privacy. We want you to know about how we collect, store, process, transfer and use your personal data (hereinafter “Personal Data”). We are subject to the General Data Privacy Regulation (“GDPR”), the German Federal Data Protection Law (“BDSG”) and the German Telemedia Act (“TMG”). We maintain technical and organizational measures to ensure that these data protection provisions will be followed by us and our external service providers. In the following, we would like to inform you about how we process your data.
Collection, Storage, Processing and Use of Personal Data
Personal Data is any personal or factual information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes any information, such as your name, address, telephone number or information about which offers on our website you might find particularly interesting, that can be traced back to you. Information that cannot be related to you (such as number of website users or particularly popular websites) will not qualify as personal data.
You can visit our website without disclosing your identity. When accessing or making use of our online services, data will be stored on our servers and the servers of our external service providers, which potentially makes it possible to identify you (e.g., date, time and accessed website).
Without your consent, we will process your personal data only for the display of our services on our website and in case you choose to contact us via the contact form.
Transfer of Personal Data to Third Parties
If you have given us a separate consent for the processing and transfer of your Personal Data, we may transfer your Personal Data to the recipients specified in your consent.
If your Personal Data is transferred to an external service provider processing data on our behalf, these data processors are also subject to the GDPR and other applicable data protection laws. We will ensure that these service providers will only process your Personal Data according to our instructions by entering into a data processing agreement compliant with Art. 28 GDPR.
If legally obligated, for example, in the case of a court or administrative order, we will disclose your Personal Data to law enforcement, regulators and other parties. We may also disclose personal information to third parties to help detect and investigate illegal activities and breaches of any agreement we have with you or to protect our rights, property or safety or to protect the rights, property or safety of others.
Other Collection, Storage, Processing, Transfer or Usage of Personal Data
Any further collection, storage, processing, transfer or usage of your Personal Data will only be conducted based on a consent you may have separately granted us. You can withdraw such consent at any time.
Incorporation of Services and Contents from Third Parties into our Website
Content of third parties, such as maps from Google Maps or from other websites, is or will be integrated into our site. This may require that the providers of the content (“third-party provider”) will process your IP address or other Personal Data. Without this information, the third-party provider may not be able to provide content for you to view or use. Where an IP address or other Personal Data is necessary for showing the third-party provider’s content, we try to use content only from those providers that use the IP address or other Personal Data only for the delivery of such content. However, we have no influence on whether or not the third-party provider will save the IP address or other Personal Data for their own use, e.g., for statistical purposes.
Your Rights, Point of Contact for Data Protection
You have the right to access the Personal Data we hold about you and the right to request the correction of inaccurate Personal Data and to request the blocking or deletion of your Personal Data where the processing does not comply with local data protection laws. In addition, you have the right to object to the processing of your Personal Data and, where applicable, the right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR.
If you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or usage of your Personal Data or if you want to exercise your rights described above or want to withdraw a previously granted consent, please contact:
Please also note that you have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authorities.
We have implemented and maintain technical and organizational measures for our websites and other systems to protect your Personal Data against loss, access, damage and disclosure to unauthorized third parties.
Usage of Cookies; automatic information collection and processing
To help us design and enhance your individual website experience, to make our services safer and more attractive and to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests, we create pseudonymized user profiles, and for this purpose, we use the services of third parties such as Google Analytics.

Google will use this information to analyze your usage of the website, to create reports of your website activities for the website providers and to provide further services related to the usage of the internet and this website. Google will transfer your data to third parties only if it is legally obligated to do so or if these third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google will not combine the information with other data Google may have. You can prevent the collection and processing of information by the Goggle Analytics cookie regarding your usage of this website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the following browser plug in: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
