This data protection declaration explains the type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data within our online offer and the websites, functions and content associated with it. The responsible body within the meaning of the data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is: Denis Behnke

Purposes of data processing by the responsible body and third parties
We only process your personal data for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent to this,
- the processing is necessary to perform a contract with you,
- the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation, the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.
Deletion or blocking of the data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for by the various storage periods provided for by the legislature. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Collection of general information when visiting our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:
- Ensuring trouble-free connection establishment of the website,
- Ensuring smooth use of our website,
- Evaluation of system security and stability as well
- for other administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if necessary, the processor.
Anonymous information of this type may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called „cookies“. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive by a website server. As a result, we automatically receive certain data, e.g. IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or deliver viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our websites to be displayed correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or be linked to personal data without your consent.
If you contact us via e-mail or the contact form with questions of any kind, give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of establishing contact. This requires the specification of a valid e-mail address. This is used to allocate the request and then to answer it. Providing further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After the request you have made has been dealt with, personal data will be automatically deleted.
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as B. Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply to your next visit.
