Google Fonts

We use “Google Fonts” on our website, a service provided by Google.

Google Fonts allows us to use external fonts, known as Google Fonts. When you access our website, your web browser loads the required Google Font into the browser cache. This is necessary for your browser to display an optically improved representation of our texts. If your browser does not support this function, a default font will be used for display on your computer.

The integration of Google Fonts is done through a server call, usually to a Google server in the USA. This transmits to the server which of our pages you have visited. The IP address of your device’s browser is also stored by Google. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected and processed by Google through the use of Google Fonts.

We use Google Fonts for optimization purposes, especially to improve the usability of our website and to make its design more user-friendly. This is our legitimate interest in processing the above data by the third-party provider. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

Contact Form

If you contact us via email or through a contact form, transmitted data including your contact details will be stored to process your inquiry or to be available for follow-up questions. These data will not be disclosed without your consent. The processing of data entered into the contact form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. A simple notification by email is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. Data transmitted via the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer exists. Mandatory legal provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.

Use and Disclosure of Data

Personal data that you communicate to us, for example, via email (such as your name and address or email address), will neither be sold to third parties nor otherwise marketed. Your personal data will only be processed for correspondence with you and for the purpose for which you provided us with the data. For payment processing, we pass on your payment data to the credit institution commissioned with the payment.

The use of data automatically collected during your visit to our website is only for the purposes mentioned above. The data will not be used otherwise.

We assure you that we do not disclose your personal data to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so or you have given us your consent beforehand.

SSL/TLS Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. When SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Storage Duration

Personal data communicated to us through our website will only be stored until the purpose for which it was entrusted to us is fulfilled. If commercial and tax retention periods must be observed, the storage period for certain data can be up to 10 years.

Rights of Data Subjects

As a data subject in the context of the processing of your personal data, you have the following rights against the data controller in accordance with legal provisions:

Right to Withdraw Consent

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. If the processing of your data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke the consent for data processing at any time in accordance with Article 7(3) of the GDPR, with future effect. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Storage of data for billing and accounting purposes remains unaffected by a revocation.

Right to Information

You have the right to obtain confirmation from us as to whether or not we process personal data concerning you, in accordance with Article 15 of the GDPR. If such processing is taking place, you have the right to access information about the personal data we process, the purposes of processing, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the envisaged storage period or the criteria for determining the storage period, the existence of the right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection to processing, complaint to a supervisory authority, the source of your data if not collected from you, the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing, and your right to be informed about the safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR relating to the transfer of your data to a third country.

Right to Rectification

You have the right to request the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning you and the completion of incomplete data, in accordance with Article 16 of the GDPR.

Right to Erasure

You have the right to request the erasure of your personal data, in accordance with Article 17 of the GDPR, if one of the following reasons applies:

  • Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • You withdraw your consent on which the processing according to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR is based, and there is no other legal ground for the processing.
  • You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
  • Your personal data has been unlawfully processed. The erasure of your personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject.
  • Your personal data has been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

However, this right does not exist to the extent that processing is necessary:

  • To exercise the right of freedom of expression and information.
  • To comply with a legal obligation that requires processing according to Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority.
  • For reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR.
  • For archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
  • For the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

If we have made your personal data public and are obliged to erase it, we shall, taking into account available technology and implementation costs, take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform data controllers processing the personal data that you have requested the erasure of all links to your personal data or of copies or replications of your personal data.

Right to Restriction of Processing

You have the right to request the restriction of processing (blocking) of your personal data in accordance with Article 18 of the GDPR. You can exercise this right at any time by contacting us at the address provided in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of the data and request the restriction of its use instead.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense, or establishment of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may only be processed – apart from its storage – with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense 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 Union or of a Member State.

Right to Notification

If you have exercised your right to rectification, erasure, or restriction of processing against us, we are obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed of this rectification, erasure, or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed about these recipients, according to Article 19 of the GDPR, if you request it.

Right Not to be Subject to Automated Decision-making, Including Profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you, in accordance with Article 22 of the GDPR. This does not apply if the decision:

  • Is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us.
  • Is authorized by Union or Member State law to which we are subject and that also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests, or
  • Is based on your explicit consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests are taken.

In the cases referred to in (a) and (c), we take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your point of view, and to contest the decision.

Right to Data Portability

If the processing is based on your consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and to transmit that data to another controller without hindrance, where technically feasible, in accordance with Article 20 of the GDPR.

Right to Object

Where we process your personal data based on the balancing of interests according to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation at any time, including profiling based on those provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims (objection pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the 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, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR).

You have the option to exercise your right to object in connection with the use of services of the information society – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

Right to Lodge a Complaint with the Competent Supervisory Authority pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have 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, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

The supervisory authority responsible for us is:
The Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information
Ludwig-Erhard-Str. 22, 7th floor 20459 Hamburg
Phone: 040/428 54-40 40
