Purpose and legal basis of data processing
Cookies are stored on your computer and transferred to our website. Some of the cookies we use are erased after the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies, however, remain on your terminal device and enable us or our partner companies to recognise your browser on your next visit (so-called persistent cookies), until they are erased as part of your personal erasure routines. You can deactivate or restrict the transfer of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. At any time, cookies that have already been saved can be erased.
Possibility for objection and elimination
You can also object at any time to the setting of persistent cookies by making the relevant settings in the browser or only permitting them to be saved after explicit confirmation.
We are committed to the security of your data. We have therefore taken appropriate physical, electronic and organisational measures to protect and secure your personal data from any unauthorised or unlawful access, use, amendment, destruction, disclosure or processing by third parties. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that your information and/or data are safeguarded against any illegal actions of third parties.
If the legal requirements according to Arts. 15 - 22 GDPR are met, you have the right of access, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing as well as the right to data portability. Upon request, we will be pleased to inform you if and which personal data we have stored about you. Furthermore, if the storage is not permissible or no longer necessary within the meaning of the GDPR, we will rectify or erase incorrect data.
You may object to the processing if we use Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR as the basis for processing your personal data. If you wish make such an objection, we ask you to provide us with a reason why we should not process your personal data. We will weigh your reasons against our interest in continuing data processing and subsequently either stop, or adapt the data processing, or point out to you our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we shall continue the processing. Please note that we also process your data if this is necessary for asserting, exercising or defending any legal claims.
