Right of objection to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

The respective legal ground on which processing is based can be found in this Privacy Policy.

If your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, to the extent it is associated with such direct marketing.

The right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the case of infringements of the GDPR , data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, especially in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work or place in which the alleged infringement took place. This right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

The right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment 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 take place if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the URL line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock icon in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

The right to information, blocking, erasure and rectification

You have the right to obtain information free of charge about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of these data at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions. You can contact us at any time at the address provided in the legal notice if you have a question on this topic or any further questions on personal data.

The right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address provided in the legal notice. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually require time to validate this. For the duration of the validation, you have the right to request restriction of processing of your personal data.
  • If processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer require your personal data, but you do require it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request a restriction on processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, your and our interests must be reconciled. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand that processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data, apart from being stored, are only permitted to be processed with your consent or in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or based on reasons connected to an important public interest of the European Union or a member state.
