In the event that any provisions of the GDPR are breached, the data subject reserves the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular one located in the member state of the data subject’s domicile, workplace or the location of the suspected violation. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have the data that we have automatically processed on the basis of your consent, or in order to fulfil a contract, delivered to you or a third party in a conventional, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of your data to another data controller, this shall only occur if technically possible.

SSL/TLS encryption

We use SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and in order to protect the transfer of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the website operator. You can see whether your connection is encrypted by checking whether the “http://” in your browser has changed to “https://” and the lock symbol has appeared in your browser line.

If SSL/TLS encryption is activated, third parties will not be able to read the data that you transfer to us.

Information, erasure and rectification

According to the applicable statutory provisions, you reserve the right to receive information on your personal data that we have stored, the origin and recipients thereof, and the purposes for the respective data processing at any time free of charge, in addition to the right to rectify or erase this data. If you have any questions in this regard or on the topic of personal data, you are welcome to contact us at any time at the address provided in the legal notice.

Right to restrict processing

You are entitled to demand that we restrict processing of your personal data. Please contact us at the address provided in the legal notice in this regard at any time. The right to restrict processing shall exist in the following cases:

• If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by use, we generally require a certain amount of time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you are entitled to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

• If processing of your personal data is found to have currently or previously been unlawful, instead of erasure, you can request the restriction of data processing.

• Once we no longer require your personal data, however you require it in order to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you reserve the right to demand restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.

• If you lodge an objection to processing in accordance with Art. 21, para. 1 GDPR, your interests must be balanced against ours. If it cannot be determined whose interests prevail, you shall be entitled to demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted.

If you have restricted processing of your personal data, this data may only be processed – with the exception of its storage – with your consent, in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, in order to safeguard the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest in the European Union or a member state.

Objection to advertising emails

We hereby expressly object to the use of the contact data published in the legal notice for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and informational material.
