For the revocation, an informal message by email is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to complain to the competent authorities

The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which the headquarters of our company is located.

Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, automatically sent to you or to third parties. The provision is made in a machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another person in charge, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Right to inquiry, correction, blocking, deletion
You have the right to inquire at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions to provide free information about your stored personal data, source of the data, their recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correct, block or delete this data. In this regard and also to further questions on the subject of personal data, you can always contact us via the contact options listed in the imprint.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as a site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. Thus, data that you submit via this website, is not readable by others. You will recognize an encrypted connection in the "https: //" address bar of your browser and at the lock icon in the browser bar.

In server log files, the website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically sends to us. This data includes:
- Browser type and version
- Operating System used

There is no merging of this data with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6(1)(b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Data submitted via the contact form, including your contact details, will be stored to process your request or to be available for follow-up questions. A disclosure of this data will not take place without your consent.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. For the revocation, an informal message by email is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Data submitted via the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or there is no longer need to retain your data. Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
To send our newsletter, we need an e-mail address from you. Verification of the specified e-mail address is necessary and the receipt of the newsletter must be agreed to.

For integration and presentation of video content, our website uses plugins from YouTube. Provider of the video portal is the YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit a page with an integrated YouTube plug-in, it will connect to YouTube's servers. YouTube will find out which of our sites you've visited.
YouTube may associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile should you be logged into your YouTube account. By logging out beforehand, you have the option to prevent this.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
Some cookies are "session cookies." Such cookies will be deleted automatically after the end of your browser session. On the other hand, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognize you when you return to our website.
With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured to automatically delete cookies when the program is closed. The deactivation of cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.
Our website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Web analytics service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses "Cookies". These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and allow analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the US.
Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimize our website and possibly also advertising.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymisation feature. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. There may be exceptions where Google transmits and truncates the full IP address to a server in the United States. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to report on website activity, and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. There is no merger of the Google Analytics transmitted IP address with other Google data.
The setting of cookies through your web browser can be prevented. However, some features of our website may be restricted. Likewise, you can prevent the collection of data relating to your website use, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that can be accessed via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

To fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have entered into a contract processing agreement with Google.
Demographics in Google Analytics
Our website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. It can be used to generate reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. An assignment of the data to a specific person is not possible. You can disable this feature at any time. This is possible through the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section "Objection to data collection".
