GDPR Privacy Notice
1. Introduction GDPR privacy notice
The protection of your personal data is very important to us. This is why we treat your personal data with the utmost confidentiality in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR Regulation (EU) 2016/679) and this privacy notice.
We process personal data from your visit to our website to such an extent as is absolutely necessary to provide service to our customers such as the IP address (Internet Protocol) of the person accessing the content which is technically necessary and only stored for the duration of the visit or for any further service provision, e.g. sending information by post.
If the data subject makes use of one of the services offered on our website (such as providing contact information, subscribing to our newsletter), processing further personal data may become necessary. In the event of missing legal provisions, we will ask the data subject for their consent.
When processing personal data (name, address, phone number and/or e-mail address), this will always be done in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG-Neu)).
In order to provide complete protection – as far as possible – when processing personal data, we have taken comprehensive technical and organizational measures. However, we cannot guarantee absolute protection since Internet-based data transfer may be subject to breaches. Alternatively, you can therefore provide us with your personal data via e-mail or phone.
Our website uses SSL/TSL encryption for the secure transmitting of personal data, e.g. via the contact form, visible by the HTTPS designation of our URL. Data is encrypted before transmission and protected against tampering and eavesdropping.

b) Data subject
Any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by a controller or processor (e.g. customer, potential buyer, business associate, or other visitors of our website).

d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.
Pseudonymization means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.
