DATA SUBJECT RIGHTS
YOUR RIGHTS AS A DATA SUBJECT
As a data subject, you have the following rights with respect to us regarding your personal data. You have:

A right to information about, among other things, the categories of data processed, the purposes of processing, the storage period and any recipients, in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO and Section 34 BDSG.
A right to correction or deletion of incorrect or incomplete data, pursuant to Art. 16 and 17 DSGVO and § 35 BDSG.
A right to restriction of processing under the conditions of Art. 18 DSGVO or § 35 para. 1 p. 2 BDSG.
A right to object to processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, insofar as the data processing was based on a legitimate interest.
A right to revoke a given consent with effect for the future pursuant to Art. 7 (3) DSGVO.
A right to data portability in a common format pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR.
You have a right under Article 22 of the GDPR not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This also includes profiling within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DSGVO.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your personal data by us with a data protection supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

PROCEDURE
If you assert your rights under the DSGVO and the BDSG against us, we will process the data you transmitted to us in the process in order to fulfill your claim.

Subsequently, we will store the data transmitted by you to us and the data transmitted by us to you in return for the purpose of documentation until the expiry of the statute of limitations under regulatory law (3 years).

The legal basis for the processing and storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest arises from our obligation to comply with your request and the need to be able to exonerate ourselves in possible fine proceedings by proving that we have properly complied with your request.

You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint. However, we would like to point out that the processing of your data to prove compliance with the data subject rights is mandatory within the meaning of Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, as other means of proof do not exist or are not equally suitable.

DATA PROTECTION MEASURE
We secure our website and other systems – and thus also your data – by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution by unauthorized persons. In particular, your personal data is transmitted through the Internet in encrypted form. We use the TLS (Transport Layer Security) coding system for this purpose.

However, the transmission of information over the Internet is never completely secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of the data transmitted from our website 100%.

MODALITIES OF DATA PROCESSING
Sources and categories of personal data
We process your personal data insofar as it is necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of a contractual relationship between us and you (inventory data). Inventory data can be in particular: Name, title, contact data (postal address, telephone, e-mail address), date of birth, etc.

Furthermore, we process your usage data. Usage data is data that is generated by your behavior when using our web offer and our services, in particular your IP address, the beginning and end of your visit to our website and information about what content you have accessed on our website.

We collect the aforementioned data either directly from you (e.g. by visiting the website) or, to the extent permitted by data protection laws, from third parties or from publicly accessible sources (e.g. trade and association registers, press, media, Internet).

TRANSFER OF DATA TO THIRD COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE E
All information that we receive from you or about you is generally processed on servers within the European Union. Your data will only be transferred to or processed in third countries without your express consent if this is provided for or permitted by law, an appropriate level of data protection is ensured in the third country, or contractual obligations exist through so-called standard data protection clauses of the EU.

DISCLOSURE OF DATA, PROCESSING OF ORDERS
We never disclose your personal data to third parties without authorization. However, we may disclose your data to third parties in particular if you have consented to the disclosure of data, if the disclosure is necessary to comply with our legal obligations or if we are entitled or obliged to disclose data due to legal provisions or official or court orders. In particular, this may involve the disclosure of information for law enforcement purposes, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.

We may also transfer your data to external service providers who process data on our behalf and according to our instructions (processors) in order to simplify or relieve our own data processing. Each processor is bound by a contract in accordance with Article 28 of the GDPR. This means, in particular, that the processor must provide sufficient guarantees that suitable technical and organizational measures will be implemented by it in such a way that the processing will be carried out in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR and that the protection of your rights as a data subject is guaranteed. Despite the commissioning of processors, we remain the controller for the processing of your personal data within the meaning of the data protection laws.

PURPOSE OF DATA PROCESSING
As a matter of principle, we use the data only for the purpose for which the data was collected from you. We may further process the data for another purpose, unless this other purpose is incompatible with the original purpose (Art. 5 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO).

STORAGE PERIOD
Unless otherwise specified in detail, we store data collected from you only for as long as is necessary for the respective purpose, unless there are legal retention obligations that prevent deletion, e.g. from commercial law or tax law.

INDIVIDUAL PROCESSING ACTIVITIES
In the following, we would like to present to you as transparently as possible which data we process from you on which occasion, on which basis and for which purpose.

SERVER LOG FILES
Every time a website is called up and every time data is retrieved from a server, general information is automatically transmitted to the server providing the data. This data transmission is automatic and is a fundamental part of communication between devices on the Internet.

The data transmitted by default includes, but is not limited to, the following information: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the Internet page from which your access took place (so-called referer), date and time of the request (so-called timestamp). In addition, the http status and the amount of data transferred are recorded as part of this request.

This information is logged by the server, stored in a table and saved there for a short time (so-called server log files). By analyzing these log files, we can detect and subsequently eliminate website errors, determine the utilization of the website at certain times and make adjustments or improvements based on this, as well as ensure the security of the server by being able to track from which IP address attacks on our server were carried out.

Your IP address is only stored for the time of your use of the website and is then immediately deleted or made partially unrecognizable by shortening it. The remaining data is stored for a limited period of time (usually 7 days).

The legal basis for the use of the server log files is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest results from the necessity for the operation and maintenance of our website, as we have explained above. You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint. However, we would like to point out in advance that the processing of your data in server log files is mandatory in the sense of Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, as otherwise the website cannot be operated at all.

COOKIES AND WEB STORAGE
We use so-called “cookies” or the “web storage” of your browser to improve the user-friendliness of our website.

Cookies
What cookies are
In very simplified terms, a cookie is a small text file that stores data about visited web pages. Cookies can be used in many ways. For example, they can store a type of “user profile”, things like your preferred language and other page settings that are required by our website to provide you with certain services. The cookie file is stored on your terminal device and may also help us to recognize you when you return to our website.

Cookies may also allow us to obtain information about your preferred activities on our website and thus tailor our website to your individual interests or even increase the speed of navigation on our website.

How you can avoid cookies
You can delete cookies manually in the security settings of your browser at any time.

However, you can also prevent cookies from being stored in the first place by setting your browser accordingly. Please note, however, that you may then not be able to use all the functions of our website in full or that there may be errors in the presentation and use of the website.

Third-party cookies
It is possible that third-party providers, with the help of which we design and operate our site, especially through so-called plugins (see below in the section “Third-party services”), independently store their own cookies on your terminal device. If you only wish to accept our own cookies, but not cookies from these third parties, you can prevent the storage of these cookies by selecting the appropriate browser setting “Block cookies from third parties”.

Legal basis
The legal basis for the use of cookies that are mandatory for the function of the website (e.g. shopping cart cookie, session cookie) is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest results from our need to be able to offer you a functioning website. Cookies are necessary for this because they are an integral part of current Internet technology and without cookies many functions of current websites would not be available. We therefore require cookies to provide you with the website in response to your request.
You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint.

However, we would like to point out that the processing of your data in certain cookies is mandatory in the sense of Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, as otherwise the website cannot be operated at all and we do not have the technical possibility to prevent the setting of cookies on certain individual end devices. However, you may be able to do this yourself in your browser. For more information on this, please take a look at the instructions for your browser.
The legal basis for the use of cookies that are not absolutely necessary for the function of the website is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the person concerned). We ask you for your consent to the use of cookies that are not necessary when you first access the website via a displayed notice text. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. You can find out how to do this in your browser in the browser instructions.

Web Storage

What is Web Storage
Web Storage is a technology for web applications that stores data in a web browser. Web Storage can be simplified as an evolution of cookies, but it differs from them in several ways.
Unlike cookies, which can be accessed by both server and client, web storage is controlled entirely by the client. This means that data is not transferred to the server each time the web page is called up. Access takes place exclusively locally via scripts on the website. In concrete terms, this means that third parties cannot access the stored information via the website. Only you and we can access the locally stored data.

Legal basis
The legal basis for the use of web storage, which is mandatory for the function of the website, is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (Legitimate Interest in Data Processing). The legitimate interest arises from our need to be able to offer you a functioning website. The Web Storage is necessary for this because it is an integral part of current Internet technology and without it many functions of current websites would not be available. We therefore require the Web Storage in order to provide you with the website in response to your request.
You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint.

However, we would like to point out that the processing of your data in web storage may be mandatory in the sense of Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, as otherwise the website cannot be operated at all and we do not have the technical possibility to prevent its use on certain individual end devices. However, you may be able to do this yourself in your browser. Please take a look at the instructions for your browser for more information on this.
The legal basis for the use of web storage, which is not absolutely necessary for the function of the website, is Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the data subject). We ask you for your consent to the use when you first call up the website via a displayed notice text. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. You can find out how this works in your browser from the browser instructions.

Contact us
Our website offers possibilities to contact us directly. By contacting us, you agree to the processing and storage of your transmitted data (in particular your e-mail address) for processing your request. You can object to this processing at any time with effect for the future. For this purpose, please use our contact details in the imprint. Please note, however, that we will then no longer process your request.
We will process the data you send us exclusively until the purpose of your contact has been achieved, unless there are legal retention periods to the contrary. If the purpose of your contact is to assert data subject rights, what has been said in the section “Your rights as a data subject” applies.
We require the following mandatory information from you:
– Name: On the one hand, this information is necessary for us because we attach importance to a personal approach as part of professional communication. We use your information exclusively for this purpose.

The legal basis for the use of the data you provide by contacting us is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the data subject). You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. For this purpose, please use the contact details provided in the imprint.
The legal basis for the processing of the mandatory data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). We have outlined the legitimate interest to you in the list above.
You can object to the processing of your data based on our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint.

Newsletter
We offer to keep you up to date regularly via our newsletter and to inform you about special offers. To sign up for the newsletter, you can enter your email address in our distribution list. You will then have to confirm the registration again (double opt-in procedure). We use the data you send us only in the context of sending the newsletter and do not pass it on to third parties for other purposes.
The legal basis for the use of your email address is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the data subject). You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please use the link in each newsletter email or contact us using the contact details provided in the imprint.

Third-party services

We use, to simplify our data processing and to extend the functionality of our website, services/resources from third parties, for example plugins, external content, software or other external service providers (services). In the process, personal data may also be transmitted to the service provider. In order to protect your data, we have contractually obligated the service providers, if necessary in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO, to process your data only in accordance with our instructions.
We expressly point out that we are regularly only responsible for the data collection and transmission by the service within the meaning of the DSGVO, but not for any subsequent processing by the respective service provider.

In detail, we use the following services:

Google services
Our website uses the following services of the company Google Ireland Limited (“Google EU”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. This company represents in the EU the company Google LLC (“Google US”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
By using the services, data is transmitted to Google EU and under certain circumstances from Google EU to Google US. The Google Group may process the transmitted data to create anonymized user profiles for statistical purposes. If you also have a Google account and are logged in to it, Google can assign the transmitted data to your account – even across devices. In principle, we have no influence on this data processing. Google EU is therefore responsible for this data processing.

More information on the handling of user data can be found in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy.
The details of the concluded standard contractual clauses (ensuring the level of data protection in third countries) can be found here: https://cloud.google.com/terms/data-processing-terms
You can manage your Google advertising preferences on the following website: https://adssettings.google.com/?hl=de (This setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies).

We use:

Google Analytics
Our website uses the “Google Analytics” service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies (see above under “Cookies”) to enable us to analyze how website visitors use the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Among other things, the following may be transmitted: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the website from which your access took place (so-called referrer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider.

IP anonymization has been activated on our website, so that your transmitted IP address is shortened and thus partially rendered unrecognizable, i.e. anonymized, before being transmitted out of the scope of the DSGVO. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address first be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened immediately there.

On our behalf, Google will use the transmitted information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage for us. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

For more information on terms of use and data protection at Google Analytics, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=de.
You can prevent the data generated by the cookie and related to the use of the website (including IP address) from being transmitted to or processed by Google by downloading the browser plugin available at the following link and installing it in your browser. The current link is: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
You can also prevent cookies from being set altogether (see “How to avoid cookies” above).
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the data subject). We ask you for your consent to the use of the service when you first access the website via a displayed notice text. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. You can find out how to do this in your browser from the browser instructions.

Google DoubleClick
We use the advertising service “DoubleClick” from Google. DoubleClick is used to provide digital advertising on the Internet. At the core of DoubleClick are ad servers that allow marketers, advertisers and advertising networks to target users with targeted Internet advertising. DoubleClick can be used to monetize websites, run online campaigns and make advertising contacts.

DoubleClick generally uses cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Via a cookie ID, Google records which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, DoubleClick can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later calls up the advertiser’s website with the same browser and buys something there. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider learns your IP address and stores it.

You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways:
1. by setting your browser software accordingly not to accept cookies (see “How to avoid cookies” above),
2. by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking, on the following website: https://www.google.de/settings/ads (this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies) or
3. by permanently disabling them in your Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.
The legal basis for the use of Google Doubleclick is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the person concerned). We ask you for your consent to use the service when you first access the website via a displayed notice text. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. You can find out how to do this in your browser in the browser instructions.

Google Fonts
Our website uses the external font service “Google Fonts” from Google. This service enables us to display our website in a consistent and appealing manner even on very differently configured user end devices by loading fonts from an external server instead of from the user’s end device. For this purpose, the required fonts are usually requested from a Google server in the USA. Through this request, the following information, among other things, is transmitted to the Google server and stored there: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser used and the operating system (so-called user agent), the website from which your access took place (so-called referrer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider.

The legal basis for the processing of your data in relation to the “Google Fonts” service is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest results from our need for an appealing and uniform presentation of our online offer. You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint.

Google Maps
Our website uses the external map service “Google Maps” from Google. Google Maps is used to provide an interactive map on our website that shows you how to find and reach us. This service enables us to present our website in an appealing way by loading map material from an external server. The required data is usually requested from a Google server in the USA. Through this request, the following information, among other things, is transmitted to Google’s server and stored there: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser used and the operating system (so-called user agent), the website from which your access took place (so-called referrer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider.
The legal basis for the use of Google Maps is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the data subject). We ask you for your consent to the use of the service when you first access the website via a displayed notice text. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. You can find out how to do this in your browser from the browser instructions.

Google reCAPTCHA
Our website uses the abuse protection “Google reCAPTCHA” by Google. reCAPTCHA is used to prevent cyberattacks and harassment by so-called “bots” (artificial website users) by verifying via an input field whether it is a real human visiting the website. This service enables us to operate our website in a stable manner and to protect it from abuse. For this purpose, the data entered is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there for verification. Through this request, the following information, among other things, is transmitted to the Google server and stored there: Your input in the input field, your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the website from which your access took place (so-called referer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider.

The legal basis for the use of reCAPTCHA is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the person concerned). We ask you for your consent to use the service when you first call up the website via a displayed message text. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. You can find out how this works in your browser from the browser instructions.

YouTube
Our website uses the video service “YouTube” from Google. YouTube is used to embed videos in our website at various points. By playing videos, the following information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there for several months: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the website from which your access took place (so-called referrer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider. YouTube uses this data, among other things, to collect statistics and improve the service.

Playing a video may also lead to a connection to Google’s own advertising network “DoubleClick” (see above).
Through the service, cookies (see above under “Cookies”) are stored and evaluated on your terminal device.
The legal basis for the use of Youtube is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the data subject). We ask you for your consent to use the service when you first call up the website via a displayed notice text. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. You can find out how this works in your browser from the browser instructions.

Analysis Tools
We use certain services that record data from website visitors and provide it to us for analysis. We use this data to improve our website, services and offerings based on usage. Specifically, the following visitor behavior information may be collected: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the website from which your access took place (so-called referer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider, approximate origin (country and city), language, clicks on content and viewing duration.
The legal basis for the use of analysis tools is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the data subject). We ask you for your consent to the use of the service when you first call up the website via a displayed notice text. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. You can find out how this works in your browser from the browser instructions.

We use:

Google Analytics
Our website uses the “Google Analytics” service provided by Google. Please see the data protection information above.

Media services
We use certain services to fill and supplement our website with digital content. For this purpose, we generally use the embedding functions of external platforms. As a result, data is transmitted from the provider’s server when the content is retrieved and is usually stored there, e.g. your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the website from which your access took place (so-called referrer), the date and time of the request and, under certain circumstances, your Internet service provider. For more information, see above under “Server log files”.

The legal basis for the use of media services is generally Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (Legitimate Interest in Data Processing), unless otherwise stated for the respective service. The legitimate interest arises from our interest in being able to offer you a website that is appealing in terms of content and appearance. You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint.

We use:

Font Awesome
Our website uses pictograms of the service “Font Awesome”. The service is provided by Fonticons, Inc., Delaware, USA. Fonticons, Inc. is represented by The Corporation Trust Company, Corporation Trust Center 1209 Orange St., Wilmington, DE 19801, USA.
For more information on how we handle user data, please see Font Awesome’s privacy policy at: https://fontawesome.com/privacy.

Social media fan pages
In addition to our website, we maintain online presences on social platforms in order to be able to communicate with customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services there.

If you visit our presence on a social platform, your data will usually be processed for our market research and advertising purposes by the respective provider of the platform. The provider may also process the data for its own purposes. Usage profiles can be created from your usage behavior and your resulting interests. These usage profiles may in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to your interests. For these purposes, cookies (see above) are usually stored on your terminal device, in which your usage behavior and interests are stored. In particular, if you are a member of the respective platforms and are logged in to them, additional data may be stored independently in the usage profiles. For a detailed presentation of the respective data processing and the objection options, we refer to the information of the providers linked below, as only they know the exact processes of their data processing.

We would like to point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union. This may result in risks because, for example, it could make it more difficult to enforce your rights.

The legal basis for the use of the online presences and the associated data processing is generally Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest arises from our need to present ourselves to visitors and users of the social networks and to contribute statements of all kinds to the media and opinion market. You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint.

The use of statistical data of all visitors to our social media websites, which are collected, processed and made available to us by the respective site operators, is based on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest results from our need for an anonymous evaluation of visit and usage behavior on our web presences for the usage-oriented improvement of the design of our online offer and the optimization of our communication with interested parties. You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. To do so, please use the contact details provided in the imprint.
If you are asked by the respective providers for consent to data processing, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the data subject). You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please contact the provider who asked you for your consent.

In the event that you wish to assert your aforementioned rights, we would like to point out that, despite possible joint responsibility, these can most effectively be asserted with the providers. As a rule, only the providers have direct access to your data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need assistance, you can contact us and we will support you at any time within the scope of our possibilities.
