Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. Their contact details can be found in this website’s legal notice.
How do we collect your data?
Firstly, your data are collected when you provide them to us. For example, this could be data that you enter into a contact form.
Other data are automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or the time the page was accessed). These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Some of the data are collected to ensure that the website functions flawlessly. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to obtain cost-free information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have a right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of these data. For further information on data protection, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. Furthermore, you have a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority.
2. General notes and obligatory information
We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. in communication by email) can exhibit security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.
Information on the data controller
The data controller for data processing on this website is:
49610 Quakenbrück, Germany
Telephone: +49 (0) 5431 / 900 63 00
The data controller is the natural or legal person who alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke a consent that has already been given at any time. An informal message by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in specific cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If your personal data are processed to conduct direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection under Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the case of GDPR violations, data subjects have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or for the fulfillment of a contract transferred to you or to a third party in a conventional, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only take place as far as it is technically feasible.
Disclosure, blocking, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain cost-free information on your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, where appropriate, a right to rectify, block, or delete these data. For further information on personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.
Right to restrict processing
You also have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. To this end, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal information stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data for the duration of the investigation.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is carried out unlawfully, you can request that data processing is restricted rather than deleted.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need them to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data instead of deleting them.
- If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data - except for their storage - may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest to the European Union or a Member State.
