Notice on Data Transfer to the USA and Other Third Countries
We use tools from companies based in the USA or other countries outside the EU that may not have data protection laws equivalent to those in the EU. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to inform you that these countries may not provide a level of data protection comparable to that of the EU. For example, US companies are required to disclose personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against it. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (such as intelligence agencies) may process, analyze, and store your data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
Revocation of Your Consent to Data Processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. The legality of data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to Object to Data Collection in Special Cases and Direct Marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH ADVERTISING, INCLUDING PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to Lodge a Complaint With the Supervisory Authority:
If you believe that there has been a violation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, especially in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. This right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and have the right to transmit those data to another controller, where technically feasible.
Information, Erasure, and Rectification
You have the right to obtain free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients, the purpose of data processing, and, if applicable, the right to rectification or erasure of such data. For this purpose, as well as for any other questions relating to personal data, you can always contact us.
Right to Restriction of Processing
You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time to exercise this right. The right to restriction of processing applies in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data that is stored with us, we usually require time to verify this. During the verification period, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was or is unlawful, and instead of erasure, you request the restriction of processing.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you require them for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of processing instead of erasure.
- If you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, a balance needs to be made between your interests and ours. Until it is determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. If you have obtained the restriction of processing of your personal data, except for storage, such data may only be processed 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 of the European Union or a member state.

You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change in the address line of your browser from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon displayed in your browser.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties

5. Analysis Tools and Advertising
This website uses the analytics services of IONOS WebAnalytics (hereinafter referred to as "IONOS"). The provider is 1&1 IONOS SE, Elgendorfer Straße 57, D-56410 Montabaur. IONOS analyzes visitor numbers and behavior (e.g., number of page views, duration of website visits, bounce rates), visitor sources (i.e., the page from which visitors come), visitor locations, as well as technical data (browser and operating system versions). For this purpose, IONOS particularly stores the following data:
- Referrer (previously visited website)
- Requested website or file Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Device type used
- Access time
- IP address in anonymized form (used only to determine the location of access)
According to IONOS, data collection is fully anonymized and cannot be traced back to individual persons. IONOS WebAnalytics does not store cookies.
The storage and analysis of data are based on Art. 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior statistically in order to optimize both the website offering and advertising. If consent has been requested, processing is based exclusively on Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR and § 25(1) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), provided that the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user's device (e.g., device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TMG. Consent can be revoked at any time.
If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require your email address and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the provided email address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or will only be collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not disclose it to third parties.
The processing of the data entered into the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)). You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the email address, and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example, by clicking the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter, and it will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe or if the purpose no longer exists. We reserve the right to delete or block email addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion within the scope of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.
Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected.
After you have been removed from the newsletter distribution list, your email address may be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist if this is necessary to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

YouTube with Enhanced Privacy Mode
This website embeds videos from the YouTube website. The operator of the YouTube pages is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the extended privacy mode does not necessarily exclude data transfer to YouTube partners. Regardless of whether you view a video, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.
When you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube's servers is established. This informs the YouTube server about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube may store various cookies on your device or use similar recognition technologies (e.g., device fingerprinting) after starting a video. This allows YouTube to obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to capture video statistics, improve user-friendliness, and prevent fraud.
Additional data processing operations may be triggered after starting a YouTube video, over which we have no control.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If the appropriate consent has been obtained, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR and § 25(1) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), provided that the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user's device (e.g., device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TMG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
This site uses the mapping service Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To use the features of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. When Google Maps is activated, Google may use Google Fonts for the purpose of a uniform presentation of fonts. When you access Google Maps, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the locations indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If the appropriate consent has been obtained, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR and § 25(1) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), provided that the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user's device (e.g., device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TMG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/ and https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/sccs/.
