III. General information on data processing
1. the scope of processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is required by legal regulations.

2. legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b of the DPA serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Data is also blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.

IV.    Rights of the data subject
If personal data is processed by you, you are a data subject within the meaning of the DSGVO and you are entitled to the following rights in relation to the person responsible:

You have the right to obtain from the data controller the rectification and/or integration of any personal data processed concerning you if it is incorrect or incomplete. The data controller shall make the correction without delay.

3. the right to limit processing
Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:

o the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
o the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
o if you have lodged an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons.
If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data - apart from being stored - may be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of major public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction on processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

4. right of deletion
a) Duty to delete

You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.

6. right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, in so far as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data transferability shall not apply to processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

7. right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter e or f of the DPA; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless he can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Where personal data relating to you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it relates to such direct marketing.

9. automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect on you or which significantly affects you in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision

1. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible

2. is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the person responsible is subject and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or

3. with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a or b DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in 1. and 3., the controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you is in breach of the DPA.

The legal basis for the use of the IP address and, if applicable, other information provided by the user (in particular postcode) is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, based on our interest in ensuring a more precise target group approach and thus providing offers and advertising with a higher relevance for users.
For this purpose, part of the IP address and the additional information provided by the user (in particular postcode) is merely read out and not stored separately.
You can prevent geo-targeting by using a VPN or proxy server, for example, which prevents precise localization. In addition, depending on the browser used, you can also deactivate geolocation in the corresponding browser settings (if supported by the respective browser).
We use geotargeting on our website for the following purposes:
