If appropriate consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user’s device (e.g., device fingerprinting) in terms of TTDSG.

Data Processing Agreement
We have concluded a contract for order processing (AVV) for the use of the service mentioned above. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that this service processes the personal data of our website visitors only according to our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.
We use the Content Delivery Network (CDN) provided by Cloudflare Germany GmbH, Rosental 7, c/o Mindspace, 80331 Munich, Germany (Cloudflare) to enhance the security and delivery speed of our website. This corresponds to our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). A CDN is a network of servers distributed [worldwide] capable of delivering optimized content to website users. For this purpose, personal data may be processed in server log files by Cloudflare.
Cloudflare is the recipient of your personal data and acts as a processor for us. This corresponds to our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, not to operate our own Content Delivery Network.
You have the right to object to the processing. Whether the objection is successful is to be determined within the framework of a balancing of interests.
The processing of the data specified in this section is neither legally nor contractually required. The functionality of the website is not guaranteed without the processing.

General information about data processing legal bases on this website
Recipients of personal data
In the course of our business activities, we work with various external entities. In some cases, the transmission of personal data to these external entities is necessary. We only pass on personal data to external entities if it is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract, if we are legally obliged to do so (e.g., disclosure of data to tax authorities), if we have a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in the disclosure, or if another legal basis allows data transfer. When using data processors, we only pass on personal data of our customers based on a valid contract for order processing. In the case of joint processing, a joint processing agreement is concluded.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If your personal data is processed to conduct direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work, or place of the alleged infringement. This right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another controller, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Information, correction, and deletion
You have the right, within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correct or delete this data. For this purpose and for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense, or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – apart from their storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense 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.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize 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.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used

- IP address
These data will not be combined with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR 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 inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested; consent can be revoked at any time.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask 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 request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular, retention periods – remain unaffected.
We use Typeform by TYPEFORM SL, C/Bac de Roda, 163 (Local), 08018 Barcelona, Spain (Typeform) for our contact forms. This allows us to provide you with a simple means of contact.

The revocation can be made using the contact options provided. Your data will be processed as long as the corresponding consent exists. Declaration of revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out prior to the revocation.

Inquiry via Email, Telephone, or Fax
If you contact us via email, telephone, or fax, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not disclose this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, provided your inquiry is related to the performance of a contract or necessary for pre-contractual measures.
