Various personal data are collected when you use this website. Personal data mean data that can be used to identify you personally. This Data Protection Policy explains what data we collect and what we use them for. It also explains how and for what purpose this takes place.

Notice concerning the controller
The controller responsible for data processing on this website is:
Eschersheimer Landstr. 25-27
60322 Frankfurt a.M.
“Controller” means the natural or legal person which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. name, email address, etc.).
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are possible only with your explicit consent. You may at any time withdraw the consent that you provided. Simple notification by email to us is sufficient for this purpose. Withdrawal of consent does affect the lawfulness of data processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases, as well as to direct marketing (Article 21 GDPR)
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. You can find the respective legal basis for processing in this Data Protection Policy. If you lodge an objection, we may no longer process the personal data concerning you unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection in accordance with Article 21(1) GDPR).
Where personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, the personal data concerning you may no longer be processed for such direct marketing purposes (objection in accordance with Article 21(2) GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent authority
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract turned over to you or a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request that the data be transmitted directly to another controller, this takes place only where technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
For security reasons, and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL and TLS encryption. You can tell that a connection is encrypted when the display in your browser’s address bar changes from “http://” to “https://”, as well as by the lock icon in your browser’s status bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, erasure and rectification
Within the scope of applicable statutory provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain information at no charge about the personal data stored about you, their source and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as, where necessary, a right to rectification or erasure of these data. If you have further questions about this or other issues concerning personal data, you may contact us at any time at the address listed in the imprint.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to obtain the restriction of processing of your personal data. You may contact us about this at any time at the address listed in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
• If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we normally need time to verify this. You have the right to obtain the restriction of processing of your personal data for the duration of the verification.
• If the processing of your personal data is/was unlawful, you may obtain the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
• If we no longer need your personal data, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to obtain the restriction of processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
• If you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, a balancing of your interests and our interests has to take place. Until it has been determined which interests are overriding, you have the right to obtain the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you restricted the processing of your personal data, such personal data may, with the exception of storage, be processed only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
Objection to advertising email
We hereby object to the use of the contact data published in connection with the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending advertising and informational material that was not expressly requested. The operators of the website expressly reserve legal steps in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, e.g. through spam.
3. Collection of data on this website
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, we store the information contained in the enquiry form, including the contact data provided by you in it, for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not disclose these data without your consent.
These data are processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR, to the extent that your enquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries directed at us (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR), insofar as this was requested.
We retain the data entered by you in the contact form until you request that they be erased, until you withdraw your consent, or until the purpose for data storage no longer exists (e.g. after the processing of your enquiry has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions, including retention periods, remain unaffected.
Enquiry by email, phone, or fax
If you contact us by email, phone, or fax, we store and process your enquiry, including all personal data resulting from it (name, enquiry), for the purpose of processing your concern. We do not disclose these data without your consent.
These data are processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR, to the extent that your enquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries directed at us.
We retain the data sent to us by you in connection with contact enquiries until you request that they be erased, until you withdraw your consent, or until the purpose for data storage no longer exists (e.g. after the processing of your concern has been completed).
