When registering for my newsletter

For the receipt of the newsletter the indication of an e-mail address is sufficient. The deregistration is possible at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively you can also send your unsubscribe request to me by e-mail.
Transfers to third countries
If data is processed in a third country (ie outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)), or in the context of the use of third party services or disclosure, or transmission of data to third parties, this will only be done if it is to fulfill my (pre) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, I process or let the data in a third country only in the presence of the special conditions of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. That the processing is e.g. on the basis of specific guarantees, such as the officially recognized level of data protection (eg for the US through the Privacy Shield) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).
Collaboration with processors and third parties
If, as part of the processing, I disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties), transmit them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (eg if the data are transmitted to third parties, as to payment service providers, pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR to fulfill the contract), you have consented to a legal obligation or on the basis of my legitimate interests (eg the use of agents, webhosters, etc.). If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “contract processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.
Hosting and e-mailing
The hosting services I use are designed to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage and database services, e-mailing, security, and technical maintenance services I use to operate this online service. Here we, or our hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer acc. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR i.V.m. Art. 28 GDPR (conclusion of contract processing contract).
On the other hand, cookies are used to statistically record the use of the website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing my offer for you. These cookies make it possible to automatically recognize when you visit my site again that you were already with me. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined time. The data processed by cookies are required for the purposes mentioned to safeguard my legitimate interests as well as those of third parties according to Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a hint appears before a new cookie is created. However, disabling cookies completely may mean that you can not use all features of my website.
You have the right to:
- confirm of whether data concerning them is being processed, information about the data being processed, further information about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
- correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
- to the immediate deletion of data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17 GDPR), or, alternatively, if further processing is necessary as stipulated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said processing per Art. 18 GDPR;
- receive copies of the data concerning them and/or provided by them, and to have the same transmitted to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
- file complaints with the supervisory authority if they believe that data concerning them is being processed by the controller in breach of data protection provisions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).
In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections, deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless, users have a right to information about these recipients.
Right to object
Likewise, under art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to the controller’s future processing of their data pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. in particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permissible.
Data deletion and storage
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted. It may also be stored if European or national laws or regulations apply to which the controller is subject. A blocking or deletion of the data takes place even if a storage period prescribed by the mentioned regulations expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for a conclusion of contract or a fulfillment of the contract.
Integration of services and contents of third parties
On the basis of my legitimate interests (i.e., interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of my online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f. GDPR) I use content or services from third-party providers on my website, such as videos or fonts (collectively referred to as “content”).
This presupposes that the third-party providers of the content perceive the IP address of the users, as it is required for the presentation of the content. I strive to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content.
Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include, but is not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time, and other information regarding the use of our online offer.
I use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. My security measures are constantly being improved in line with technological developments.
