Note to the responsible unitThe responsible data processing unit on this website is:
Dr. Marianne von Schmettow
Phone: +49 160 91749864
Responsible entity is the natural or legal person who, alone or in concert with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (such as names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to the processing of your dataMany data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
Right to file complaints with regulatory authoritiesIf there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German state in which our company is headquartered. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portabilityYou have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Information, blocking, deletionAs permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.
Opposition to promotional emailsWe hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.
SSL or TLS encryptionThis site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
3. Data collection on our website
Processing of dataWe collect, process, and use personal data only insofar as it is necessary to establish, or modify legal relationships with us (master data). This is done based on Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract. We collect, process and use your personal data when accessing our website (usage data) only to the extent required to enable you to access our service or to bill you for the same.
Collected customer data shall be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Necessary processing of data to provide the websiteWhen our website is accessed, your web browser automatically sends data to our web server. These are:
- IP address respectively hostname of the accessing computer
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Time of the server request
- Referrer URL
Purpose of the data collection to provide the websiteYour IP address has to be collected by our system while providing the website to accomplish your access to the website technically. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO.
Revocation and deletion possibilitiesSince the collection of the data for the delivery of the website is technically mandatory, there is no possibility for the user of the objection or for us the possibility of the deletion of the data. The IP address is automatically deleted when you leave the website.
Server-Log-FilesThe provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files. The data transmitted correspond to the data collected for the provision of the website.
Your IP address is changed during transmission to the server log files and thus anonymized. A personal assignment of the stored data is thus no longer possible.
A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Duration of storageYour IP address will be stored for the duration of your session. The deletion of the server log files takes place after one day.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
Contact formIf you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the contact form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. All you need to do is send an informal email to us. The legality of the data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.
