The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to the processing of data
A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process by automated means on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract supplied to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. Should you request that your data be transferred directly to a different controller, this request will only be granted if it is technically feasible.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

4. Analysis tools und Advertising
On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service that displays interactive maps to visualize geographic information. Using this service will show you our location and make it easier for you to get there.
When you visit the subpages in which the map of Google Maps is embedded, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers of Google. It is possible that this information is also transmitted to servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether a user account does not exist. If you are logged in to Google your data will be directly allocated to your account. If you do not wish such allocation to be made with your Google profile you have to log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles and evaluates them. The collection, storage and evaluation are carried out in accordance with Article 6.1 lit. f of the GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the display of personalized advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of Google websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles by Google. To exercise this right, you have to contact Google.
