The content of our website has been compiled with meticulous care and to the best of our knowledge. However, we cannot assume any liability for the up-to-dateness, completeness or accuracy of any of the pages.
Pursuant to section 7, para. 1 of the TMG (Telemediengesetz – Tele Media Act by German law), we as service providers are liable for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws.

Once we have become aware of a specific infringement of the law, we will immediately remove the content in question. Any liability concerning this matter can only be assumed from the point in time at which the infringement becomes known to us.
Limitation of liability for external links
Our website may contain links to the websites of third parties (“external links”). As the content of these websites is not under our control, we cannot assume any liability for such external content. In all cases, the provider of information of the linked websites is liable for the content and accuracy of the information provided. At the point in time when the links were placed, no infringements of the law were recognisable to us.

The content and works published on this website are governed by the copyright laws of Germany. Any duplication, processing, distribution or any form of utilisation beyond the scope of copyright law shall require the prior written consent of the author or authors in question.
A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.
We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g. by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.
The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g. by means of spam mail.

- Deletion is not possible due to retention obligations.
Insofar as data cannot be deleted, you may exercise a right to the restriction of processing (as follows).
Right to the restriction of processing
You have the right to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data, if:
- You dispute the correctness of the data and we must therefore review the correctness.
- The processing is unlawful and you decline data erasure and instead request restriction of use.
- We no longer require the data, but you still need the data in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
- You have submitted an objection to the processing of your data and it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate interests prevail over your interests.
Right of data portability
You have the right to receive your personal data, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly available and machine-readable format. Moreover, you have the right to have us transmit this data to another controller without hindrance by us, provided that the processing is based on a contract or consent, and our processing takes place with the aid of automated processes.
Right of withdrawal
The data subject has the right at any time to submit an objection to the processing of their personal data, which takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) e) or f), for reasons arising from their particular situation; this also apples to profiling based on one of these conditions. Insofar as the processing of your personal data is based on a consent, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
VIII. Statutory deadlines for the erasure of data
Insofar as no statutory retention obligation applies, the data shall be deleted or destroyed once it is no longer required for fulfilling the purpose of data processing. Various deadlines apply to the retention of personal data. For instance, data of tax relevance is generally stored for ten years, while other data is typically retained for six years in accordance with provisions under the Commercial Code. Furthermore, the storage period may also be determined by statutory limitation periods, which may generally amount to three years in the case of Articles 195 et seqq. of the Civil Code, for example, or in certain cases up to even thirty years.
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
In accordance with Art. 77 GDPR, each data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, if they believe that the processing of their personal data is in violation of the GDPR. The competent supervisory authority in data protection matters is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company has its registered office.
