In order to do so, all that is necessary on your part is an informal notification by email. The legality of any data processing prior to this date shall not be affected by this revocation.

Right to data transferability

You are entitled to have the data about you that we process automatically on the basis of your agreement or in order to fulfill a contract surrendered to you or to third parties. This data shall be provided in a machine-readable format. If you have requested for the data in question to be transferred directly to another responsible party this will only be effected if it is technically feasible.


SSL or TLS encryption

For reasons of safety and the protection of any confidential content that you send to us as site operators our website uses either SSL or TLS encryption. This means that the data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the “https://” address line in your browser and by the padlock symbol in the browser line.

This data will not be merged with other data sources. The data in question is processed on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of DSGVO, the German Data Protection Regulation, which regulates the processing of contracts or pre-contractual measures.



in order to integrate or display video content our website uses YouTube plug-ins. The provider of this video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you retrieve a site with an integrated YouTube plug-in a connection is established with the YouTube server. This informs YouTube of which of our sites you have retrieved.
YouTube can relate your surfing pattern directly to your personal profile. By logging out beforehand, you have the option of preventing this.
The purpose of using YouTube is to make for an appealing presentation of our Internet services. This represents a justifiable interest in the sense of art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of DSGVO, the German Data Protection Regulation.

Our website uses cookies. These are little text files which your web browser stores on your terminal. Cookies help us to make what we offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.
A number of cookies are “session cookies”. Such cookies remain on your terminal until you yourself delete them. Such cookies help us to recognize you when you visit our website again.
