Information is stored in the cookie, each arising in connection with the specific device used. However, this does not mean that we immediately obtain your identity as a result of this.

On one hand, the use of cookies means we can make our offer more convenient for you to use. For this, we use so-called session cookies, to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after leaving our site.

In addition we also use temporary cookies to enhance the user experience, stored for a certain period on your device. If you visit our site again to take advantage of our services, it will automatically recognise that you have already visited before and what inputs and settings you have made, so you do not have to re-enter them.

On the other hand, we also use cookies to capture statistics on the use of our website and to evaluate this for the purposes of optimising our offer for you. These cookies allow us to detect that you have already visited once, while visiting our site again. These cookies are automatically deleted after each defined time period.

The data processed by cookies is necessary for the purposes mentioned for the protection of our legitimate interests and of third parties.

What data subject rights do you have?

You have the right:

  • To request information about your personal data processed by us. In particular, to request information about the purposes of the processing, the category of personal information, the categories of recipients to whom your data was or is being disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, deletion, limitation of processing or contradiction, the existence of a right to complain, the origin of your data, insofar as these were not raised with us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about specific details;
  • To promptly request the correction of incorrect personal data stored with us, or to request its completion;
  • To request the deletion of your personal data held by us, insofar as it is not required for the purposes of exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
  • To request the limitation of the processing of your personal data as far as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you reject its deletion and we no longer need the data, but you require it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or you have lodged an objection against the processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR; and
  • To obtain your personal information that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request its transmission to another data controller.

Right of objection

Insofar as your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with article 21 GDPR if there are reasons for this arising from your specific situation or if the objection is directed against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which will be implemented by us without the need for you to specify a particular situation.
