The consent can be revoked at any time.
Our host will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfill its service obligations and will follow our instructions with regard to this data.

General information on the legal basis of data processing on this website
Revocation of your consent for data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases as well as to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event of GDPR violations, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a regulatory authority, particularly in the member state of their habitual residence, their job or the location of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment 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 data to another responsible body, this will only take place insofar as it is technically feasible.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the address line of the browser changing 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.
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 data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time for this as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to restrict processing
You also have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. 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 that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of deletion.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of being deleted.
If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between your and our interests. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests will prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from being stored – may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

The use of contact data published in the context of the legal notice obligation for the sending of advertising and information materials not explicitly requested is hereby objected to. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam emails.
