Information on the data controller
The data controller responsible for data processing on this website is:

Tel. +49.228.35 14 96
Data controller means the natural or legal person which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. name, email address, etc.).
Many data processing procedures can only be performed with your express consent. If you have previously given your consent, you can withdraw it at any time. To do so, simply send us an email stating that you wish to withdraw your consent. This does not affect the legality of data processing performed before you withdraw your consent.
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, transmitted to yourself or to a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request direct transmission of data to another data controller, this will only take place where it is technically feasible.
Information, restriction of availability, erasure and rectification
Under applicable legislation, you have the right to receive at any time information about the origin, recipients and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge and may have the right to rectification, restriction of availability or erasure of these data. You can contact us about this or any other questions about personal data at any time using the address provided in the legal notice.
You have the right to obtain restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us about this at any time using the address provided in the legal notice. You have the right to restrict processing in the following cases:
If you contest the accuracy of personal data stored by us, we will usually require time to verify this. During the period of verification, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing of your personal data.
If processing of your personal data has taken/is taking place unlawfully, you can request restriction of data processing instead of erasure of your data.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you require them for the exercise, defence or establishment of legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
If you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, an assessment will be made as to whether our interests override yours. Pending verification of whose interests have primacy, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted processing of your personal data, these data may – with the exception of storage – only be processed with your consent, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
We hereby object to the use of contact data published pursuant to our obligation under German law to publish a legal notice (Impressumspflicht) for the sending of promotional or information materials, other than materials that have been expressly requested by us. The website operators reserve the right to take legal action in the event that we are sent unsolicited promotional materials, for example spam emails.
