Gen­er­al note and manda­to­ry information

Des­ig­na­tion of the respon­si­ble body

The per­son respon­si­ble for data pro­cess­ing on this web­site is:

Markus von Scheven

Kiel­er Str. 1a,

10115 Berlin

The con­troller decides alone or joint­ly with oth­ers on the pur­pos­es and means of pro­cess­ing per­son­al data (e.g. names, con­tact details, etc.)

Revo­ca­tion of your con­sent to data processing

Only with your express con­sent are some data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions pos­si­ble. A revo­ca­tion of your already giv­en con­sent is pos­si­ble at any time. An infor­mal noti­fi­ca­tion by e‑mail is suf­fi­cient for the revo­ca­tion. The law­ful­ness of the data pro­cess­ing car­ried out up to the revo­ca­tion remains unaf­fect­ed by the revocation.

Right to appeal to the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry authority

As the per­son con­cerned, you have the right to com­plain to the rel­e­vant super­vi­so­ry author­i­ty in the event of a breach of data pro­tec­tion law. The com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry author­i­ty with regard to data pro­tec­tion issues is the State Data Pro­tec­tion Com­mis­sion­er of the fed­er­al state in which our com­pa­ny is based. The fol­low­ing link pro­vides a list of the data pro­tec­tion offi­cers and their con­tact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Right to data transferability

You have the right to have data, which we process auto­mat­i­cal­ly on the basis of your con­sent or in ful­fil­ment of a con­tract, hand­ed over to you or to third par­ties. The pro­vi­sion is made in a machine-read­able for­mat. If you request direct trans­fer of the data to anoth­er respon­si­ble par­ty, this will only be done to the extent that it is tech­ni­cal­ly feasible.

Right to infor­ma­tion, cor­rec­tion, block­ing, deletion

With­in the frame­work of the applic­a­ble legal pro­vi­sions, you have the right to obtain infor­ma­tion free of charge at any time about your stored per­son­al data, the ori­gin of the data, the recip­i­ents of the data and the pur­pose of the data pro­cess­ing and, if applic­a­ble, the right to cor­rect, block or delete this data. In this regard and also for fur­ther ques­tions on the sub­ject of per­son­al data, you can con­tact us at any time using the con­tact options list­ed in the imprint.

SSL or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent that you send to us as the site oper­a­tor, our web­site uses SSL or TLS encryp­tion. This means that data that you trans­mit via this web­site can­not be read by third par­ties. You can recog­nise an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion by the “https://” address line of your brows­er and the lock sym­bol in the brows­er line.

Con­tact form

Data trans­mit­ted via the con­tact form will be stored includ­ing your con­tact data in order to be able to process your request or to be avail­able for fol­low-up ques­tions. These data will not be passed on with­out your consent.

The pro­cess­ing of the data entered in the con­tact form is based exclu­sive­ly on your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). A revo­ca­tion of your already giv­en con­sent is pos­si­ble at any time. An infor­mal noti­fi­ca­tion by e‑mail is suf­fi­cient for the revo­ca­tion. The legal­i­ty of the data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions car­ried out up to the time of revo­ca­tion shall remain unaf­fect­ed by the revocation.

Data trans­mit­ted via the con­tact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your con­sent to its stor­age or until there is no longer any need to store the data. Manda­to­ry legal pro­vi­sions — in par­tic­u­lar reten­tion peri­ods — remain unaffected.

Newslet­ter data

To send our newslet­ter we need an e‑mail address from you. A ver­i­fi­ca­tion of the giv­en e‑mail address is nec­es­sary and you have to agree to receive the newslet­ter. Addi­tion­al data is not col­lect­ed or is vol­un­tary. The data will be used exclu­sive­ly for send­ing the newsletter.

The data pro­vid­ed when reg­is­ter­ing for the newslet­ter will be processed exclu­sive­ly on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). A revo­ca­tion of your already giv­en con­sent is pos­si­ble at any time. To revoke your con­sent, sim­ply send us an infor­mal e‑mail or unsub­scribe using the “Unsub­scribe” link in the newslet­ter. The legal­i­ty of the data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions already car­ried out remains unaf­fect­ed by the revocation.

Data entered to set up the sub­scrip­tion will be delet­ed in case of can­cel­la­tion. If these data have been trans­mit­ted to us for oth­er pur­pos­es and else­where, they will remain with us.

Cook­ies

Our web­site uses cook­ies. These are small text files that your web brows­er stores on your end device. Cook­ies help us to make our offer more user-friend­ly, more effec­tive and safer.

Some cook­ies are “ses­sion cook­ies.” Such cook­ies are delet­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly at the end of your brows­er ses­sion. On the oth­er hand, oth­er cook­ies remain on your ter­mi­nal device until you delete them your­self. Such cook­ies help us to recog­nise you when you return to our website.

With a mod­ern web brows­er you can mon­i­tor, restrict or pre­vent the set­ting of cook­ies. Many web browsers can be con­fig­ured so that cook­ies are delet­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly when you close the pro­gram. Dis­abling cook­ies may result in lim­it­ed func­tion­al­i­ty of our website.

The set­ting of cook­ies, which are nec­es­sary for elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tion process­es or the pro­vi­sion of cer­tain func­tions request­ed by you (e.g. shop­ping bas­ket), is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As oper­a­tors of this web­site, we have a legit­i­mate inter­est in the stor­age of cook­ies for the tech­ni­cal­ly error-free and smooth pro­vi­sion of our ser­vices. If oth­er cook­ies are set (e.g. for analy­sis func­tions), these will be treat­ed sep­a­rate­ly in this data pro­tec­tion declaration.

Google Ana­lyt­ics

Our web­site uses func­tions of the web analy­sis ser­vice Google Ana­lyt­ics. The provider of the web analy­sis ser­vice is Google Inc, 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Ana­lyt­ics uses “cook­ies.” These are small text files that your web brows­er stores on your end device and enable an analy­sis of web­site usage. Infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by cook­ies about your use of our web­site is trans­mit­ted to a Google serv­er and stored there. Serv­er loca­tion is usu­al­ly the USA.

The set­ting of Google Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the oper­a­tor of this web­site, we have a legit­i­mate inter­est in analysing user behav­iour in order to opti­mise our web­site and, if nec­es­sary, advertising.

IP anonymi­sa­tion

We use Google Ana­lyt­ics in con­junc­tion with the IP anonymi­sa­tion func­tion. It ensures that Google short­ens your IP address with­in mem­ber states of the Euro­pean Union or in oth­er con­tract­ing states of the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­nom­ic Area before send­ing it to the USA. There may be excep­tion­al cas­es in which Google trans­fers the full IP address to a serv­er in the USA and short­ens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this infor­ma­tion to eval­u­ate your use of the web­site, to cre­ate reports on web­site activ­i­ties and to pro­vide us with fur­ther ser­vices relat­ed to web­site and inter­net use. The IP address trans­mit­ted by Google Ana­lyt­ics is not merged with oth­er Google data.

The use of these web fonts makes it pos­si­ble for us to present you with the pre­sen­ta­tion of our web­site that you require, regard­less of which fonts you use local­ly for the pur­pose of access.

brows­er plugin

The set­ting of cook­ies by your web brows­er can be pre­vent­ed. How­ev­er, some func­tions of our web­site could be restrict­ed as a result.

Our web­site uses the “demo­graph­ic fea­tures” func­tion of Google Ana­lyt­ics. It can be used to gen­er­ate reports that con­tain infor­ma­tion about the age, gen­der and inter­ests of the site vis­i­tors. This data comes from inter­est-based adver­tis­ing by Google and from vis­i­tor data from third par­ties. It is not pos­si­ble to assign the data to a spe­cif­ic per­son. You can dis­able this fea­ture at any time. You can do this through the ad set­tings in your Google Account or by gen­er­al­ly pro­hibit­ing the col­lec­tion of your data by Google Ana­lyt­ics, as explained in the “Opt­ing out of data col­lec­tion” section.
