In general, our website can be used without providing personal data. When it is necessary to gather personal data through our website, this occurs as far as possible on a purely consensual basis. This data will not be forwarded to third parties without the express consent of the user. We would like to draw the user’s attention to the fact that transmission of data via the internet can expose security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to guarantee that data will never become accessible to third parties. The use of the contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligations by third parties for the purpose of sending advertisements and information materials not expressly demanded by the user is hereby explicitly forbidden. We reserve the right to take legal action in case of unsolicited sending of advertising materials, e.g. in the form of spam mail.

Data protection statement for the use of Facebook plugins (“like” button)
Collection and disclosure of information: The Google +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button gives you and other users personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have given +1 to access this content and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can appear in Google services such as in search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and advertisements, along with your profile name and picture. Google records information about your +1 activity to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button, you need a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
Our website pages include functions for Instagram services. These functions are provided by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If you are logged into your Instagram account you can link the contents of our website pages to your Instagram profile by clicking the Instagram button. This allows Instagram to associate your visit to our website with your user account. We would like to point out that we as the website provider have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or of how it is used by Instagram.
We are providing you with the opportunity to subscribe to our free newsletter. We will only send this newsletter with your authorization or when permitted by law. When you sign up for the newsletter, the data from the form is sent to us. Your email address is the only compulsory field, but you may also voluntarily share your address, first name, and last name with us.
We obtain your consent before processing your data for the purpose of sending out the newsletter, and refer to the following data protection policy. We use a double opt-in process for signing up. After successfully subscribing, you will receive an email, in which you need to click on a link in order to confirm your subscription. This mechanism prevents unauthorized third parties from being able to subscribe using your email address. We log the registration process in order to be able to prove that it is in accordance with legal requirements. To this end, the IP address of the device being used and the login date and time are saved. Your data will be stored for as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter. You can terminate your subscription at any time, and there is an “unsubscribe” link in every newsletter for this purpose. This also enables you to revoke your consent.
The legal basis in German law for processing your data when you have given your consent to receive newsletters is Art. 6 Abs. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
Our newsletters are not sent to you directly by us, but by the service provider postina.net and the service pn.mail/mailingwork, whom we commission to deal with order processing, and which have secure server locations in the EU. However, postina.net does not use your data to contact you directly. Your data will not be shared with third parties as part of the data processing conducted in order to send out the newsletter.
A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place. We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities. The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.
