The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically 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 be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

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

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

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If, after the conclusion of a contract with costs, there is an obligation to provide us with your payment data (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorisation), this data is required for the processing of payments.

Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

With encrypted communication, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, deletion and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction or deletion of this data.

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balancing of your interests and ours must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) if this has been requested.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

According to §§ 195 ff. BGB, these limitation periods can be up to 30 years, whereby the regular limitation period is 3 years. Retention obligations and resulting retention periods also exist due to tax law, money laundering law, commercial law, tax law and other legal regulations.

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyse the behaviour of website visitors. In doing so, the website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, length of stay, operating systems used and the origin of the user. This data may be summarised by Google in a profile that is assigned to the respective user or their end device.

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Browser plugin

You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Processing of (personal) data by the Mobile Funnel operator

This website uses Mobile Funnel (hereinafter: Funnel), operated by PerspectiveSoftware GmbH (hereinafter: Perspective), a company based in Germany, which offers software for the creation and operation of Mobile Funnel(https://perspective.co/impressum). The data entered in the context of the use of Mobile Funnel is transmitted via SSL encryption and stored in a database. The operator of this website is solely responsible for this data within the meaning of Art. 24 DS-GVO. Perspective is only the operator of the software and in this context is a processor according to Art. 28 DS-GVO. The basis for the processing by Perspective is a contract for commissioned processing between the controller and Perspective.

Access logs ("server logs")

With every access to the Funnel, general log data, so-called server logs, are automatically collected. These data are usually pseudonyms and therefore do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a natural person. Without this data, it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the contents of the software. In addition, the processing of this data is absolutely necessary for security reasons, in particular for access, input, transfer and storage control. Furthermore, the anonymous information can be used for statistical purposes and for optimising the offer and the technology. In addition, the log files can be subsequently checked and evaluated if there is suspicion of illegal use of the software. The legal basis for this is found in § 15 para. 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and Art. 6. (1) f DS-GVO. Data such as the domain name of the website, the web browser and web browser version, the operating system and the timestamp of access to the software are generally collected. The IP address of the user is not stored. However, the user is assigned a so-called session ID. The scope of this logging does not exceed the usual scope of any other website on the Internet. The storage period of these access logs is up to 7 days. There is no right of objection.

Collection of user behaviour data

In general, data such as the domain name of the website, the web browser and web browser version, the operating system, the user's session ID and the time stamp of access to the software are collected. All data that the user enters when using the Funnel (e.g. answering form fields; using interactive components) are assigned to the user by means of a session ID and made available to the operator of this website. The operator of this website is responsible for the deletion, storage and further processing of this personal data in accordance with current legislation.

Use of cookies

So-called cookies are used in the funnels. These are small text files that are stored on the device with which you access these funnels. The cookies used serve to ensure security when visiting a website ("absolutely necessary"), to implement certain functionalities such as standard language settings ("functional") and to improve the user experience or performance on the website ("performance"). Within the funnels, strictly necessary, functional and performance cookies are used, in particular to implement certain default settings such as the language, to store responses given even in the event of a poor internet connection or to analyse the performance of a funnel and the channel used by a user to access this funnel. The use of cookies is mandatory for the provision of our services and thus for the fulfilment of the contract (Art. 6 (1) b) DS-GVO). Storage period: Up to 1 month or until the end of the browser session Right of objection: You can determine yourself via your browser settings whether you want to allow cookies or object to the use of cookies. Please note that deactivating cookies may result in limited or completely disabled functionality of the Funnel. The operator of this website has the possibility to decide individually for each funnel used, which decision options for the use of cookies are given to the user. It is the responsibility of the website operator to use cookies in accordance with the applicable legal restrictions. If the website operator uses extensions from external companies within the funnel, it is the responsibility of the website operator to inform the user of this.
