2. General Information and Mandatory Information
We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g., communication by email) may have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The responsible party for data processing on this website is:
Lichtenbergstraße 8 D-85748 Garching Germany
Phone: +49 89 548 425 20 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The responsible party is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g., names, email addresses, etc.).
Revocation of Your Consent to Data Processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. An informal notification by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to Object to Data Collection in Special Cases and Direct Marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to Lodge a Complaint with the Supervisory Authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state where they usually reside, work, or where the alleged infringement occurred. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Information, Blocking, Deletion, and Correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correct, block, or delete this data. For further information on personal data, you can contact us at any time using the address provided in the site notice.
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 using the address provided in the site notice. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we have stored about you, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification process, 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 need it to exercise, defend, or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21(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, such data – apart from being stored – may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, 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.
3. Data Collection on Our Website
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
Server Log Files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files.” These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.
Contact via Email, Telephone, or Fax
If you contact us by email, telephone, or fax, your inquiry, including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent.
The processing of these data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to us.
The data sent by you to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
