2. general notes and mandatory information
Information about the responsible party: The responsible party for data processing on this website is:
The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of 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 previously given consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of objection to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 DPA): If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DPA, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data concerned, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal
claims (objection according to Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO). Where your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority: In the event of infringements of the DSGVO, those concerned have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or the place where the alleged infringement was committed. The right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data transferability: You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, 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.
Information, blocking, deletion and correction: Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to receive information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Right to limit processing: You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be limited. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the audit, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it 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 it.
- If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet 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 - apart from their storage - may only be processed with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
Objection to advertising e-mails: We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising information being sent, for example by spam e-mails.
