Privacy Policy

The protection of your personal data is an important concern for us. We process your data in accordance with the applicable national and European data protection laws. In order that you know which data we process for which purposes and which rights you have in this regard, we would like to inform you about the processing of your personal data.

1. The controller

3. General information on data processing
a) Scope of processing of personal data
The controller only collects and processes personal data of users, as far as this is necessary for the operation of a functional website and its contents and services. The collection and processing of personal data of the users basically takes place with the user’s consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

b) Legal basis for the processing of personal data
If the controller obtains the consent of the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the processing of personal data required for the fulfilment of a contract in which the data subject is involved, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing required to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which the company of the controller is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR shall be the legal basis. If the data processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of the controller or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
c) Data erasure and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, personal data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The personal data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the personal data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

4. Processor and data security
On the basis of separate written contracts or other legal acts under Union or Member State law, the controller also has personal data processed by service providers pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. This does not involve the transfer of your personal data to third parties within the meaning of data protection law. The controller remains responsible to you under data protection law. The employees of the processor are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of your data just as the controller´s own employees are. They are subject to the instructions of controller. All technical and organisational security measures required by law to protect your personal data from loss and misuse are guaranteed by the controller. Your personal data is stored in secure operating environments, which are only accessible to employees of the processors to the extent that this is absolutely necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations.

5. Calling up this website
The controller collects and processes personal data concerning you only as far as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as the contents and services of the controller. Each time this website is called up, the system of the controller automatically collects the following data from the computer system of the calling computer and stores them in log files: name of the file called up, date and time of the call up, amount of data transferred, message about successful call up, type of your browser and version used, IP address of the user, operating system of the user, Internet service provider of the user, websites from which the user's system succeeded in accessing this website, websites which are called up by the user's system via this website. This data is not merged with other data sources. The legal basis for the collection and storage of data in log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The temporary collection of data by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to your computer and to ensure its reproduction. The data is also stored in log files to ensure the stability and functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data serves to optimise this website and to guarantee the security of the information technology systems of the controller against possible attacks from outside. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the data collected for the provision of the website at the end of the respective session; within the framework of storing the data in log files after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case the IP address is deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling computer is no longer possible. The collection of data for the provision of the website and its storage in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the online service, so that there is no possibility of objection.

6. Contact
On this website, you can contact the controller via an online contact form or via e-mail. The personal data (e.g. name, e-mail address) transmitted to the controller via the input mask of the contact form or by e-mail serve exclusively the processing of your contact inquiries. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted by contact form is, with your prior consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, for the processing of data transmitted by e-mail Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. For the aforementioned purposes, the controller also has a legitimate interest in the processing of the data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which the data were collected. This is the case when the processing of your respective inquiry has been completed, i.e. it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified. You have the right at any time to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data as well as to object to the storage of your personal data transmitted to the controller by e-mail. In this case, the conversation cannot continue. For this purpose, you can contact the controller under section 1 of this Privacy Policy. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will then be deleted.

7. Newsletter
On this website users can subscribe to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask (e-mail address) is transmitted to the controller. In addition, the following data is collected upon registration: IP address of the calling computer, date and time of registration. In the course of the registration process, your consent is obtained for the processing of the data and reference is made to this Privacy Policy. In connection with data processing for the dispatch of newsletters, no data is passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter. The legal basis for the processing of data after registration for the newsletter by the user is, with the user's consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The collection of the user's e-mail address serves to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The user's e-mail address will therefore be stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. The other personal data collected during the registration process will generally be deleted after a period of seven days. The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A message in text form to the contact mentioned in section 1 of this Privacy Policy is sufficient (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter). For this purpose you will also find a link in each newsletter which you can use to unsubscribe from the newsletter. This also makes it possible to revoke the consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.

8. Cookies
This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on your computer system. When you visit a website, a cookie may be stored on your operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables a unique identification of the browser when the website is called up again. The controller uses cookies to make this website more user-friendly. Some elements of this website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change. The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies: Language settings, log-in information. The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of Internet pages for users. Some functions of this website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For this it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after a page change. The controller needs cookies for the following applications: adoption of language settings, remembering search terms. The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not processed to create user profiles. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Cookies are stored on your computer and transmitted to this website. Therefore, users also have full control over the use of cookies. Users can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in the Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for this website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website in full.

9. Links
This website contains links to online contents of third parties over which the controller has no influence and therefore cannot assume any responsibility for data protection or content. Please read the privacy policy of the online contents that you access via this website.

10. Plugins and other tools
a) Web fonts
The controller has integrated components of fonts.com on this website. Fonts.com enables the display of fonts via external fonts, so-called web fonts. fonts.com is operated by Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts 01801, USA. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed and operated by the controller, the Internet browser on your information technology system is automatically prompted by the fonts.com component to download data from the www.fonts.com website. Within the framework of this technical procedure, fonts.com is informed about the visit and which specific individual page of this website is used by your information technology system. Furthermore, fonts.com is informed about the IP address of the computer system used by you, the type of browser, the browser language, the website called up before this website, the date and time of the visit of this website. The data and information transmitted to fonts.com in this way enables fonts.com itself and its affiliated companies or its partner companies to target visitors to the website of the controller with personalized and interest-related advertising. fonts.com's current privacy policy is available at
http://www.monotype.com/de/rechtshinweise/datenschutzrichtlinie/

b) Google Web Fonts
In order to display the contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, the controller on this website uses script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://fonts.google.com/). Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font. Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.
The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

c) Jetpack (WordPress)
The controller has integrated Jetpack on this website. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in which offers the operator of a website based on WordPress additional functions. Jetpack allows the website operator, among other things, an overview of the visitors to the site. The display of related articles and publications or the possibility of sharing content on the site also makes it possible to increase the number of visitors. In addition, security functions are integrated into Jetpack, so that a website using Jetpack is better protected against brute force attacks. Jetpack also optimizes and accelerates the loading of images integrated on the website.
The Jetpack plug-in for WordPress is operated by Automattic Inc, 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The operating company uses the tracking technology of Quantcast Inc. 201 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
Jetpack places a cookie on your information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the controller and on which a jetpack component has been integrated, the Internet browser on your information technology is automatically caused by the respective jetpack component to transmit data to Automattic for analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Automattic is informed about the data that is subsequently used to create an overview of Internet site visits. The data collected in this way are used to analyse the behaviour of the person concerned who has accessed the website of the controller and are evaluated with the aim of optimising the website. The data collected via the Jetpack component will not be used to identify you without the your prior express consent. The data is also made available to Quantcast. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by this website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Automattic/Quantcast from placing a cookie on your information technology system. In addition, cookies already set by Automattic can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, you have the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by the Jetpack cookie and related to the use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Automattic/Quantcast and to prevent such collection. To do this, you must press the opt-out button under the link https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on your information technology system. If the cookies are deleted on your system after an objection, you must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.
With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the Internet pages of the controller can no longer be used in full by you.
Automattic's current privacy policy is available at https://automattic.com/privacy/ Quantcast's current privacy policy is available at https://www.quantcast.com/privacy/

d) Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. "("Google"). Google uses cookie text files. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online content by you is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active). Google will use this information on behalf of the controller to evaluate the use of the online content of the controller by you, to compile reports about the activities within this online content and to provide further services associated with the use of this online content and the use of the Internet to the controller. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data. The controller only uses Google Analytics if IP anonymization is activated. This means that Google will reduce the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the your browser is not merged with other Google data. The purpose of the use of Google Analytics is the analysis, optimization and economic operation of this online content. This also includes the legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
You can deactivate the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the online content and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

c) Right to erasure (´Right to be forgotten´), Art. 17 GDPR
You may request the controller to erase the personal data concerning you immediately and the controller is obliged to erase such data immediately if one of the following reasons applies: the personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which the data were collected or otherwise processed. You withdraw your consent, on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing. You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR.

The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 GDPR. If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, the controller shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controller who process the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the erasure of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller; for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with lit. h and lit. i of Art. 9 para. 2 GDPR as well as Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR; for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR in so far as the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

d) Right to restriction of processing, Art. 18 GDPR

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State. If the processing restriction has been restricted according to the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

e) ´Right to information´, Art. 19 GDPR
If you have exercised your right to have the controller rectify, erase or restrict the processing, the controller is obliged to communicate any rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing carried out in accordance with Art. 16, Art. 17 para. 1 and Art. 18 GDPR to each recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer those data to another data controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR; and the processing is carried out by automated means. In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

g) Right to withdraw the consent pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and in the same form as you have given your consent. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

h) Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, Art. 77 GDPR
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to the NDR Broadcasting Data Protection Officer in Hamburg if you believe that the processing of your personal data is contrary to the GDPR. The supervisory authority shall inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.

i) Right to object, Art. 21 GDPR
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or lit. f GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. The controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. If the personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes. You have the possibility to exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
You also have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

The controller reserves the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time to ensure that it complies with current legal requirements. This also applies in the event that this Privacy Policy has to be adapted as a result of new or revised services. The new Privacy Policy will then take effect the next time you visit this website.
