Data Collection on our Website

How do we collect your data?

The collection of your data is based in part on the fact that you notify us of the data. Such data may, for example, be data that you enter in the contact form.

Our IT systems automatically collect other data when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of access). Such data are recorded automatically as soon as you visit our website.

What do we you use your data for?

Some of the data are collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your behavior as user.

What rights do you have with regard to your data?

You have the right, at any time and free of charge, to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have the right to demand rectification, blocking and erasure of such data. You may contact us at any time at the address provided in the Legal Notice about this and other issues regarding data protection. Moreover, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

Analysis tools and tools of third-party providers

When you visit our website, your surfing behavior will be evaluated statistically. Cookies and so-called analysis programs in particular are used to carry out the evaluation. As a rule, the analysis of your surfing behavior is anonymous; the surfing behavior cannot be traced back to you. You may object to the analysis or hinder it by not using certain tools. You will find detailed information in the following Data Protection Notice. You may object to this analysis. We inform you about how you can object in this Data Protection Notice.

2. Mandatory information

Information, rectification, blocking, erasure

In accordance with applicable statutory rules, you have the right at any time to receive information, free of charge, about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purposes of data processing and, if applicable, the right to rectification, blocking and erasure of such data. If you have any questions on these or further matters regarding personal data, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in the Legal Notice.

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many data processing steps may not be carried out without your explicit consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time. An informal notification to that effect sent to us by email suffices. The lawfulness of the data processing performed up to the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of data protection law, the data subject has a right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information https://datenschutz-hamburg.de 

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the data which we process in an automated manner on the basis of your consent or to perform a contract, or to send such data to a third party, in a commonly used machine-readable format. If you demand the direct transmission of data to another controller, this will be carried out only if it is technically feasible.

3. Data Collection on our Website

Server log files The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of accessing computer
  • Time of server inquiry
  • IP address

These data are not merged with other data sources.

The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), under which data may be processed for the performance of a contract or to take steps prior to the conclusion of a contract.

Contact form

If you use the contact form to send us inquiries, your information from the form, including the contact data provided by you on the form, will be stored by us to process the inquiry and deal with follow-up questions. We will not disclose such data without your consent.

The data in the contact form is therefore processed solely on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You may withdraw your consent at any time. An informal notification to that effect sent by email suffices. The lawfulness of the data processing steps carried out up to the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

We will store the data that you enter into the contact form until you request us to erase the data, withdraw your consent to storage or if the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after you inquiry has been fully processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Google Fonts

For the uniform presentation of fonts, this page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google. When you access a page, your browser stores the required fonts in your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

For that purpose, the browser that you use has to establish a link to the servers of Google. As a result, Google learns that our website was accessed through your IP address. Google Fonts are used to present our online offerings in a uniform and attractive manner. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

If your browser does not support Google Fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
