3. Data protection officer
Our data protection offer can be contacted as follows:
In case of any questions or suggestions relating to data protection, please feel free to contact our data protection officer directly at any time.
The Privacy Statement is based on the terminology used by the European regulator in the legislation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our Privacy Statement should be clear and comprehensible to the general public, as well as to our customers and business partners. For this reason, we would like to clarify the terminology used in advance.
The following terminology is used in the Privacy Statement:
Personal data is all information pertaining to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is considered identifiable if they can be directly or indirectly identified by the assignment of identifiers, such as a name, identification number, location data or online identification data, or of one or multiple specific characteristics that reflect the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that person.
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (our company).
Processing is every procedure or sequence of procedures carried out in relation to personal data, with or without the help of automated processes, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, saving, adaptation or modification, retrieval, querying, utilisation, disclosure through transmission, distribution or other forms of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting its future processing.
Profiling is every kind of automated processing of personal data, in which personal data is used to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, particularly for the purpose of analysing or predicting aspects pertaining to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or change in location of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data such that it can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without referring to additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and that technical and organisational measures have been taken to ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The data processor is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other entity who processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other entity to whom personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether they are a third party or not. Authorities who receive personal data within the scope of a specific investigation order in accordance with European Union law or the law of member states, however, are not classified as recipients.
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or entity, other than the data subject, controller, data processor and persons who are authorised to process data under the direct responsibility of the controller or data processor.
Consent is any declaration of intent provided voluntarily by the data subject for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a statement or other clear, affirmative action with which the data subject indicates that they consent to the processing of their personal data.
This application uses SSL and TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact enquiries that you send to us as the operator.
We use this technology to protect the data you send us.

You can also revoke your consent by sending a message to this effect to the afore-mentioned controller, and via the data protection menu in the application.
