For easier readability and understanding, we explain the terminology of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In the data protection declaration, we use the following terms, among others:

a) Personal Data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data Subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

c) Processing
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of Processing
Restriction of processing is the labelling of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

e) Profiling
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to data subjects job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.

f) Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or Person Responsible for the Processing
The controller or person responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

h) Processor
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.

i) Recipient
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive Personal Data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

j) Third Party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

k) Consent
Consent shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject's wishes for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a statement or any other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

1. Scope of the Processing of Personal Data
As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly carried out only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Legal Base for the Processing of Personal Data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 para.1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal base. 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 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal base. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our authority is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal base. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 para.1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal base. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our authority or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 para.1 lit. e GDPR serves as the legal base for the processing.

3 Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may take place beyond this if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
If you wish to inspect and update your personal data or have questions about data protection on our website, please contact us at any time via our specified e-mail address or by letter.

1. Description and Scope of Data Processing
Each time our website is called, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data is collected in this context:

  1. Information about the browser type and version used
  2. The operating system of the user
  3. The user's Internet service provider
  4. The IP address of the user
  5. Date and time of access
  6. Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
  7. Websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website.

This data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal Base of Data Processing
If storage of IP addresses in log files takes place:
Legal base for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e GDPR.

3. Purpose of Data Processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e GDPR.

4. Duration of Storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
In the case of storage of data in log files data is no longer than seven days stored at latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of Objection and Elimination
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organizational measures. We use an encryption procedure on our pages. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can 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://.

1. Description and Scope of Data Processing
On our website, we offer an access-protected area which is accessible to a closed user group and is mainly used for internal, official purposes. Registration is required to access this area. Registration takes place through the administration.

We treat your personal data confidentially and do not transmit them to unauthorized third parties.

We embed videos on our websites that are not stored on our server. To ensure that calling up our web pages with embedded videos does not automatically lead to the content of the third-party provider being reloaded, we only display locally stored preview images of the videos in a first step. This does not provide the third-party provider with any information.
Only after a click on the preview image is the content of the third-party provider reloaded. This provides the third-party provider with the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data technically required in this context. In addition, the third-party provider is then able to implement tracking technologies. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider. By clicking on the preview image, you give us permission to upload content from the third-party provider.
The embedding is based on your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR, provided that you have given your consent by clicking on the preview image. Please note that the embedding of many videos leads to your data being processed outside the EU or EEA. In some countries, there is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and monitoring purposes without you being informed or being able to appeal. If we use providers in unsafe third countries and you consent, the transfer to an unsafe third country will be based on Article 49(1)(a) of the GDPR.
