Your data will then no longer be processed for the purposes covered by the objection or revocation of consent. The lawfulness of the processing carried out until the objection or revocation remains unaffected. After your objection to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes or the revocation of your consent, we are obliged, in accordance with the requirements of the German data protection supervisory authorities, to include the data required for this purpose (name, address, e-mail address) in our internal blocking list and to store it permanently - only for this purpose of blocking - and to use it for matching with our future advertising files. (Art. 21 para. 3, Art. 17 para. 3 b, Art. 6 para. 1 c DSGVO). In this way, the observance of your objection or the revocation of your consent can be permanently ensured.

Die Verarbeitung der von Ihnen in das Kontaktformular eingegebenen Daten erfolgt somit ausschließlich auf Grundlage Ihrer Einwilligung (Art. 6 Abs. 1 a DSGVO).

Your personal data, which you transmit to us using a contact form, will remain with us until you request us to delete the data, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after processing your request has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
Request by e-mail or phone
If you contact us by e-mail or phone, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, phone number or e-mail address) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) b DSGVO, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a DSGVO) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us.

Mandatory legal provisions - in particular legal retention periods - remain unaffected.
We pass on your personal data within our company to those areas that require this data to fulfill contractual and legal obligations or to implement our legitimate interests.
Furthermore, we may share your information with the following entities:
- Public bodies and institutions in the event of a legal or official obligation under which we are obliged to provide information, report or pass on data, or if the passing on of data is in the public interest.
- other bodies for which you have given us your consent to the transfer of data

Datenschutzinformation für unsere Social Media-Profile
gemäß Art. 13, 14 und 21 der Datenschutz-Grundverordnung DSGVO
Wir haben öffentlich zugängliche Profile in sozialen Netzwerken. Welche das im Einzelnen sind, finden Sie weiter unten. Soziale Netzwerke können Ihr Nutzerverhalten in der Regel umfassend analysieren, wenn Sie deren Website oder eine Website mit integrierten Social-Media-Inhalten (z. B. Like-Buttons oder Werbebannern) besuchen. Durch den Besuch unserer Social-Media-Profile werden zahlreiche datenschutzrelevante Verarbeitungsvorgänge ausgelöst:
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, this visit can be assigned to your user account by the operator of the portal. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. This data collection then takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or through the collection of your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. As a result, you can be shown interest-based advertising inside and also outside the respective social media platform. If you have an account with the respective social platform, the interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.
Through our profiles in social networks, we want to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the Internet. This is our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO. The analysis processes of the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which are to be specified by the operators of the respective social network (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 a DSGVO).
Responsible person and assertion of rights
Together with the operator of the social media platform, we are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during your visit. Therefore, you can generally assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal.
Please note that despite the joint responsibility, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.
As soon as the purpose for their storage ceases to apply, you request us to delete them, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage ceases to apply, the data directly collected by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected by this. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them yourself.
