Data subject rights:
You can obtain information about your data stored by us at any time without giving reasons.
You have the right to:
in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO to request information about your personal data processed by us. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details;

pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer require the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO;

As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our company for this purpose.
Right of withdrawal:
Please note that data protection regulations and data protection practices, e.g. at Google, can change continuously. It is therefore advisable and necessary to keep yourself informed about changes in legal regulations and the practices of companies, e.g. Google, on an ongoing basis.
We use the widespread SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure in conjunction with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. You can recognize this by the key or lock symbol in your browser.
Furthermore, we 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. We continuously improve our security measures in line with technological developments.
Subject of data protection:
The subject of data protection is personal data. According to Art. 4 (1) DSGVO, these are individual details about the personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number, but also usage data such as your IP address, if applicable.
Further definitions for improved understanding:
This is you as the owner of your own data. You are allowed to have a say in how your data is processed as part of your data subject rights and you are also allowed to revoke the processing.
This is us, as we are responsible for the proper processing of your data.
This is the process or also a series of processes in connection with personal data from the collection of the data through the use to the deletion or destruction. We can perform this ourselves or service providers directly commissioned by us are involved.
In pseudonymization, data is processed in such a way that it can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the addition of additional information. In principle, however, pseudonymization can always be cancelled if the relevant data is brought together.
The personal data is deleted or alienated in such a way that, under normal circumstances, it is no longer possible to identify the individual person with it. When we make evaluations or statistics, we try to work with anonymized data wherever possible.
Scope of data collection and storage:
Calling up our website:
Data subjects can generally use our website without having to provide any information about their personal data. However, the processing of personal data may become necessary if the data subject wishes to receive certain services, such as our newsletter or further product information.

The processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO if the processing becomes necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to pre-contractual measures that take place at the request of the data subject.
The processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO if the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
The processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO if the processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This may be a rare case when a data subject is seriously injured and therefore his or her personal data is disclosed to a doctor, for example.
The processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO if the processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, override these interests.
