Information, blocking and erasure
In connection with applicable legal provisions, you have the right to be issued information, free of charge, regarding your personal data that is saved, its origin and recipients, the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to the rectification, blocking or deletion thereof. You can contact us at any time at the address specified in the website credits in this regard as well as with further questions relating to this topic.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For reasons of safety and in order to protect the transfer of confidential content such as orders or inquiries you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL and/or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection in that the address bar of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” as well as the lock symbol in your browser bar.
If SSL and/or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Email and contact form
We will only save personal data, which we process in connection with a general contact inquiry sent via e-mail or our contact form as long as is necessary for the respective correspondence.
If you forward us inquiries with the contact form, we will save your data from the contact form including the contact data you specified therein in order to process your inquiry and also in the event of subsequent questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent. The data provided in the contact form will therefore be processed only on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time.
An informal message in an e-mail to us is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing operations that were performed up to revocation shall not be affected by the revocation. The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you ask that we erase it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for data storage ceases to apply (e.g. once your inquiry has been processed).
Compulsory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or precontractual measures.
