IV. Cookies

Our website uses cookies within the scope of our legitimate interest in providing a technically flawless online offer and its optimization pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU GDPR, so that our offer can be used better, more effectively, and more safely.

Cookies are small text files that a website stores on your computer. These can be, for instance, so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted at the end of your visit to our website. There are also cookies that are permanently stored on your computer unless you delete them yourself. This enables us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website and to make you appropriate offers. In your browser settings you can prevent any cookies from being stored whatsoever or when visiting certain websites. It is possible, however, that not all the functions of our website can be used then. We use cookies to simplify the use of our website for users. The cookies are thus used to adopt language settings, to store search terms, as well as for the session ID and the cookie content tool. The cookies are also used to manage your settings and recognize cookie support.

We likewise use persistent cookies, that is, cookies that persist even after the browser is closed. Furthermore, we use analysis cookies to analyze users’ surfing behavior. For this purpose, we obtain consent from the user for the processing of personal data used in this context. For the analysis, the entered search terms, the frequency of the page views, and the use of website functions are transmitted.

V. Email Contact

If you send us an inquiry by e-mail, your data will only be used for processing your inquiry. This data will not be passed on to a third party. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. The processing of the data is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU GDPR), which you have granted by sending the e-mail. You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, sending us an informal communication by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data you send us in the e-mail remains stored by us until you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after we have completed processing your inquiry). Mandatory legal provisions—particularly the retention periods—remain unaffected.

4. Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 EU GDPR)
You can request the restriction of the processing of your data. Where the processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may be processed—with the exception of its storage—only 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 or the Union or a Member State.
