Information on data transfer to the USA
Among the tools integrated into our website are some from companies based
in the USA. When these tools are activated, your personal data may be forwarded
to the US servers of these companies. We point out that the USA is not a safe
third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are
required to release personal data to security authorities without you, as the
data subject, being able to take legal action against such. For this reason, it
cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) could process,
evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes.
Such processing activities are beyond our control.

Many data-processing operations are only possible with your express
consent. You can at any time withdraw any consent you have already given. This

DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT. IF YOU FILE AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS
YOUR PERSONAL DATA AFFECTED UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE
GROUNDS FOR SUCH PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS
OR PROCESSING SERVES THE PURPOSE OF ESTABLISHING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL
CLAIMS (OBJECTION UNDER ART. 21(1) OF THE GDPR).
WHERE YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES, YOU
SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
CONCERNING YOU FOR SUCH MARKETING, WHICH INCLUDES PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT
IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL

authorisation), such data will be required for handling payment.
Payment transactions via the commonly used means of payment
(Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) will be made exclusively via an encrypted SSL
or TLS connection. You can recognise an encrypted connection in the browser's
address lines when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and also by the lock
symbol in your browser bar.

right at any time to demand information about your stored personal data, their
origin and recipients as well as the purpose for which your data are processed

verification takes, you have the right to obtain restriction of the processing
of your personal data.
· If your personal data have been or are being
processed unlawfully, you have the right to obtain restriction of the
processing of your personal data rather than having them erased.
· If we no longer need your personal data, but you
require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you
shall have the right, instead of erasure, to obtain restriction of the
processing of your personal data.
· If you have filed an objection under Art. 21(1) of the GDPR, your interests must be weighed up against ours. Until such time as it is established whose interests override, you have the right to obtain restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data
shall, 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 of a Member State.
Rejection of advertising emails
The use of contact data published within the scope of the obligation to
provide Publication Details for sending advertising and information material
that has not been expressly requested is hereby rejected. The operators of the
pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the
unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as by spam mails.
