We take the protection of your data seriously and make every effort to collect and store as little data as possible. Nevertheless, a certain degree of storage and evaluation of user data is necessary in order to guarantee and improve the operation of this website. The use of this website is basically possible without having to provide any personal data. Also an allocation of data to a certain person does not take place – unless you apply for finance and tell us your name and other personal details, for example in our application form.
If you use one of the services offered on this website, this regularly requires the collection, processing and storage of personal data, such as your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number. This collection, processing and storage takes place in principle either on the basis of your express consent obtained beforehand or on the basis of a corresponding legal authorisation and on the basis of the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We would like to inform you here about the type, scope and purpose of the data collected, processed, stored and used by us via this website as well as about your rights existing in this context.
We use SSL transport encryption on this site. This serves, among other things, to protect confidential content, for example when we receive enquiries. You can see that the connection is actually encrypted in the address line of your browser, which always begins with “https://” and confirms the existing transport encryption with a green lock symbol.

any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”);
any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, on-line identifier or one or more specific characteristics which express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;

“Restriction of processing”
the marking of stored personal data with a view to limiting their future processing;
any automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data for the purpose of evaluating certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or movement of that natural person; as a company committed to data protection, we refrain from any form of profiling;
the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person;
any structured collection of personal data accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or organised on a functional or geographical basis;
“controller” (or: “controller”) means”
the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his designation may be laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States;
a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller;

Legal basis for data processing
The processing of personal data by us takes place on the basis of the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):
For processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose, the processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the GDPR. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party (e.g. for the delivery of goods or the rendering of any other service or consideration) or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (e.g. for inquiries regarding our products or services), the processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b of the GDPR.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required as a result of a legal obligation to which we are subject, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations or storage regulations under commercial law, processing shall be carried out on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter c of the GDPR.
Where, exceptionally, the processing of personal data should be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, the processing would be carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(d) of the GDPR.
The processing of personal data necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party shall be carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, prevail. Such a legitimate interest is also the conduct of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders. The provision of personal data may be required by law (e.g. commercial law or tax law) or for reasons of contract execution. If we are not provided with such data (e.g. information on a contractual partner) for processing, we cannot conclude a corresponding contract.

Cookies are small amounts of data (text files) that your Internet browser stores on your computer. Cookies can be used to store information about your visit to our website, which enables us to recognize your browser and distinguish it from the browsers of other affected persons. Most browsers are set by default to accept cookies. However, you can reconfigure your browser at any time so that it rejects cookies or asks you for confirmation beforehand. If you reject cookies, however, this may mean that not all offers and functions of this website function or can be used without problems for you.
- for internal visitor statistics and
- online advertising
Internal visitor statistics (Google Analytics)
(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it will be shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This shortens the processing of IP addresses, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you is related to a person, this is excluded immediately and the personal data is deleted immediately.
(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
[(7) This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows conducted through a User ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under “My Data”, “Personal Data”.]
Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google, Inc. tag manager, which allows us to manage various website tags, i.e. small code snippets, from a single interface. Google Tool Manager is only used to implement tags from different vendors, but does not set a cookie or collect personally identifiable information. If such data is collected through the tags implemented by Google Tag Manager, we will indicate this separately in this privacy statement in the section about each tag provider.
1. use of Google AdWords Conversion
(1) We use the offer of Google AdWords to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising material (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In doing so, we pursue the interest of showing you advertising that is of interest to you, of making our website more interesting for you and of achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
(2) These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. We use ad server cookies for this purpose, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google AdWords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
(3) These cookies allow Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked through AdWords customer websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognise which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
(4) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server.

If you subscribe to a newsletter offered by us on this website, you must provide us with certain personal data, in particular your e-mail address, using the corresponding input form.
For legal reasons, we use the “double opt-in” procedure for newsletter registration by means of an automatically processed confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address provided by you. This enables us to check whether the owner of the e-mail address you provided has actually authorised the receipt of the newsletter as the person concerned.
We use the personal data collected in the course of newsletter registration exclusively for the following purposes
- to send the newsletter as well as
- for the dispatch of information and requests by e-mail which are necessary or necessary for the operation or further development of the newsletter service.
A newsletter subscription can be cancelled at any time, the consent to the storage of personal data can be revoked at any time. This cancellation or revocation can be made via the link contained in each newsletter or via any other communication to the person responsible for processing. In the event of both termination and revocation, we will delete the relevant personal data unless otherwise required by law, and discontinue sending the newsletter to the person concerned.
In addition to the data transmitted via the input form, we also save the date and time of your registration and the IP address you used for this purpose. This is done for the purpose of our own legal protection and for the purpose of protecting our technical systems against misuse.
The newsletters sent by us contain pixel-code, i.e. miniature graphics embedded in the e-mail, the call of which is recorded in a log file and used to identify whether and when the respective newsletter was opened.

These data are stored and processed exclusively for the purpose of statistical evaluation of the newsletter dispatch, optimisation of the newsletter dispatch and better adaptation of the newsletter content to the respective subscriber.
Integration of Google Maps
On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and allows you to conveniently use the map function.
When you visit the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted.

Duration of storage, deletion and blocking of personal data
Personal data of the data subjects shall be processed or stored by the data controller only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose, subject to other statutory provisions. A further determining criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. Once the storage purposes have ceased to apply and existing legal storage periods have expired, the personal data shall be blocked or deleted by the data controller in accordance with the statutory provisions and requirements even without a corresponding request from the data subject.
Your rights as a person
Below we describe the rights which each person affected by the processing of personal data has vis-à-vis the person responsible for the processing.

4. the right to obtain a copy of the personal data undergoing processing. For any further copies requested by the data subject, the controller may charge a reasonable fee based on the administrative costs. Where the data subject submits the request by electronic means, the information shall be made available in a common electronic format, unless the data subject indicates otherwise. This right to receive a copy shall not prejudice the rights and freedoms of others;
5. the right to rectification, i.e. the right to ask the data controller without delay to rectify any inaccurate personal data concerning him. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary statement;
6. the right to be erased (‘the right to be forgotten’), i.e. the right to require the data controller to erase personal data concerning him without delay, and the data controller is obliged to erase personal data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:
(a) personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(b) The data subject shall withdraw the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the basic Regulation and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(a) the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time which enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
(b) the processing is unlawful and the data subject refuses to erase the personal data and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted;
(c) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them for the exercise, exercise or defence of legal rights; or
(d) the data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the basic Regulation until it is established whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject. Where processing has been limited as a result, such personal data shall not be processed, except with the consent of the data subject or for the exercise, exercise or defence of rights or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State, except where the data are stored. A data subject who has obtained a restriction on processing shall be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
8. the right to data transferability, i.e. the right of the data subject of the processing of personal data to obtain the personal data concerning him which he has provided to a controller, in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and the right to communicate these data to another controller without obstruction by the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that

(b) the processing is carried out by automated means. In exercising his right to data transfer, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, in so far as this is technically feasible. This right must not affect the rights and freedoms of others. The exercise of this right to data transfer does not affect the right to cancellation (“right to be forgotten”). This right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
9. the right of opposition, that is to say the right of the data subject to the processing of personal data to object at any time, on grounds relating to his/her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him/her under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the basic Regulation on data protection, including profiling based on these provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless he can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing outweighing the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing is for the exercise, exercise or defence of legal rights.
Where personal data are processed for the purposes of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him for the purposes of such advertising, including profiling, in so far as it is linked to such direct marketing.
Where the data subject objects to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, personal data shall no longer be processed for those purposes. Notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, the data subject may exercise his right of objection in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
The data subject shall have the right to object to the processing of his personal data concerning him for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) of the basic Regulation on data protection, on grounds relating to his particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.
10. the right not to be the subject of an automated decision in a particular case (including profiling) which has legal effect in relation to it or which similarly significantly affects it.
This shall not apply if the decision
(a) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible,
(b) is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject; or
