What do we use your information for?

Some of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

You have the right at any time to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data.

Detailed information on these analysis programs can be found in the following data protection declaration.

2. hosting

3. General notes and mandatory information

Privacy

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection declaration.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data that can be used to identify you personally. This Privacy Policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how this is done and for what purpose.

We point out that data transmission on the Internet (eg  when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note regarding the responsible party

The responsible party for data processing on this website is:

Patrick Schneider
Dicke Bült 5
26624 Südbrookmerland

Telefon: +49 (0) 15152551490
E-Mail:

Controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e. e.g. names, e-mail addresses, or the like)

memory duration

Unless a more specific retention period has been mentioned within this Privacy Policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for processing the data no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e. e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, deletion will take place after these reasons cease to apply.

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries

We use, among other things, tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e. e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities..

Revoking your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

WHEN DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ART. 6 Para. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME ON GROUNDS RELATING TO YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA CONCERNED UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION UNDER ART. 21 (1) GDPR).

If YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH ADVERTISING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU DISAGREE, YOUR PERSONAL DATA SHALL FOLLOWLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT ADVERTISING (objection under Art. 21(2) of the GDPR).

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of a breach of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

Information, deletion and rectification

You have, within the framework of the applicable legal provisions at any time the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correct or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time.

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have lodged an objection under Article 21 (1) of the GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

4. Data collection on this website

Cookies

Our Internet pages use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files and do no harm to your terminal device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your terminal device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them yourself or an automatic deletion by your web browser occurs.

In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your terminal device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party company (e. e.g. cookies for processing payment services).

Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e. e. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or display advertising.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions that you have requested (functional cookies, e. e.g. for the shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e. e.g. cookies to measure the web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the storage of the cookies in question is based exclusively on this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR); consent can be revoked at any time.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, as well as activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When disabling cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

To the extent that cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the scope of this privacy policy and, if necessary, request your consent.

For the topic of cookies, this website offers its own detailed overview, which brings you closer to the topic, documents all cookies from the server and provides the revocation of consent to view embedded third-party content. The Cookie Policy page, is linked at the very bottom of the page or in the cookie banner.

server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

contact form

If you send us inquiries via contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, 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 our legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested.

The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e. e.g. after processing your request has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all personal data resulting from it (name, inquiry) 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) lit. b GDPR, provided that 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 our legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested.

The data you send to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e. e.g. after processing your request has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.

Comments feature on this website

For the comment function on this site, in addition to your comment, information about when the comment was created, your email address, and, if you do not post anonymously, the username you choose will be stored.

storage of IP address

Our comments feature stores the IP addresses of users who post comments. Since we do not check comments on this website before they are activated, we need this data to be able to take action against the author in case of legal violations such as insults or propaganda.

Subscribing to comments

As a user of the site, you can subscribe to comments after registering. You will receive a confirmation email to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided. You can unsubscribe from this feature at any time via a link in the info emails. The data entered in the context of subscribing to comments will be deleted in this case; however, if you have transmitted this data to us for other purposes and at another point (e. e.g. newsletter order), this data will remain with us.

Comment retention period

The comments and related data will be stored and remain on this website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments have to be deleted for legal reasons (e. e.g. offensive comments).

Legal basis

The storage of comments is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke any consent you have given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

5. social media

Social media plugins with shariff

Social media plugins are used on this website (e. e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, XING, LinkedIn, Tumblr).

You can usually recognize the plugins by their respective social media logos. To ensure data protection on this website, we only use these plugins together with the so-called “Shariff” solution. This application prevents the plugins integrated on this website from transmitting data to the respective provider the first time you enter the site.

Only when you activate the respective plugin by clicking on the associated button, a direct connection to the provider’s server is established (consent). As soon as you activate the plugin, the respective provider receives the information that you have visited this website with your IP address. If you are logged into your respective social media account (e. e.g. Facebook) at the same time, the respective provider can assign the visit to this website to your user account.

The activation of the plugin constitutes consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

6. plugins and tools

YouTube with enhanced privacy

This website embeds videos from YouTube. The service is integrated in such a way that before loading this content either each time individually, or permanently (for a longer period) with a cookie must be consented that the content is loaded. Without your unambiguous consent by click or tap, this content will not be loaded. You can find more about this procedure in our Cookie Policy, which is linked at the very bottom of the page or in the cookie banner. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode causes YouTube not to store information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the disclosure of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. Thus, YouTube – regardless of whether you watch a video – connects to the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube may store various cookies on your terminal device after starting a video or use comparable recognition technologies (e. e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user experience and prevent fraud attempts.

If applicable, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no control.

The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Insofar as a corresponding consent was requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

For more information about privacy at YouTube, please see their privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Vimeo without tracking (Do-Not-Track)

This website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo. The service is integrated in such a way that before loading this content either each time individually, or permanently (for a longer period) with a cookie must be consented that the content is loaded. Without your unambiguous consent by click or tap, this content will not be loaded. You can find more about this procedure in our Cookie Policy, which is linked at the very bottom of the page or in the cookie banner. The provider is Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

When you visit one of our pages equipped with Vimeo videos, a connection to Vimeo’s servers is established. This tells the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo obtains your IP address. However, we have set Vimeo so that Vimeo will not track your user activity or set cookies.

The use of Vimeo is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Insofar as a corresponding consent was requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission and, according to Vimeo, on “legitimate business interests”. Details can be found here: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

For more information on how we handle user data, please see Vimeo’s privacy policy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

Google Web Fonts (local hosting)

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place.

For more information about Google Web Fonts, please see https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Font Awesome (local hosting)

This site uses Font Awesome for consistent font rendering. Font Awesome is installed locally. There is no connection to servers of Fonticons, Inc.

For more information about Font Awesome, please see the Font Awesome privacy policy at: https://fontawesome.com/privacy.

Spotify

This website includes features of the music service Spotify. The service is integrated in such a way that before loading this content either each time individually, or permanently (for a longer period) with a cookie must be consented that the content is loaded. Without your unambiguous consent by click or tap, this content will not be loaded. You can find more about this procedure in our Cookie Policy, which is linked at the very bottom of the page or in the cookie banner. Provider is Spotify AB, Birger Jarlsgatan 61, 113 56 Stockholm in Sweden. You can recognize the Spotify plugins by the green logo on this website. An overview of the Spotify plugins can be found at: https://developer.spotify.com.

This allows a direct connection between your browser and the Spotify server to be established via the plugin when you visit this website. Spotify thereby receives the information that you have visited this website with your IP address. If you click the Spotify button while logged into your Spotify account, you can link the content of this website on your Spotify profile. This allows Spotify to associate your visit to this website with your user account.

We would like to point out that cookies from Google Analytics are used when you use Spotify, so your usage data may also be passed on to Google when you use Spotify. Google Analytics is a tool of the Google Group for analyzing user behavior based in the USA. Spotify is solely responsible for this integration. We as the website operator have no influence on this processing.

The storage and analysis of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the appealing acoustic design of its website. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested (e. e. consent to store cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

For more information, please see Spotify’s privacy policy: https://www.spotify.com/de/legal/privacy-policy/.

If you do not want Spotify to associate your visit to this website with your Spotify user account, please log out of your Spotify user account.
