Revocation of your consent to the processing of data
A great number of data processing transactions are possible only with your express consent. You can also revoke, at any time, any consent that you have already given us. To do so, all that you are required to do is to send us an informal notification via e-mail. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
In the event that data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your personal data based on grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this Data Protection Declaration. If you submit an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are in a position to present compelling protection-worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR). If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to, at any time, object to the processing of your affected personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is affiliated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will, subsequently, no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory agency
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to lodge a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.
Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that any data that we automatically process, whether on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfill a contract, be handed over to you or a third party in a well-established, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries that you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Disclosure, blocking, deletion and correction of data
Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right, to at any time, demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients, as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data corrected, blocked or deleted. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us, at any time, at the address provided in section “Information Required by Law.”
Right to demand restrictions on processing
You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us, at any time, at the address provided in section “Information Required by Law.” The right to demand the restriction of processing applies in the following cases: In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data. If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the deletion of this data. If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its deletion. If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data. If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request.
