"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR). Details of an identified person can be, for example, the name or the e-mail address. However, personal data is also data for which the identity is not immediately obvious, but which can be determined by combining own information with third-party information and thus finding out the identity of the person concerned. For example, a person can be identified through providing his or her address or bank details, date of birth or user name, IP addresses and/or location data. Any information that allows conclusions to be drawn about a person in any way whatsoever is relevant here.
Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR defines "processing” as any operation which is performed on personal data. This applies in particular to the collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data.

Your data will be exclusively processed by us and will not be sold, lent or passed on to third parties. Insofar as we use external service providers for the processing of your personal data, this is done within the scope of commissioned data processing, during which we, as the controller, are authorised to instruct our processors as the customer. For the operation and hosting of our website, we use the external service provider Hetzner. Our website is hosted in Hetzner data centres in Germany. If any of the processing operations listed in paragraphs 6-12 involve the use of other external service providers, they shall be designated there. A data transfer to third countries does not take place in principle and is also not planned. We will inform you about exceptions to this principle in the following processing steps.

9.1 Description of the processing
Some of the webpages on our website use social plug-ins from the external social networks Facebook and Instagram. When you visit one of our pages containing such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the social network. The social network transmits the content of the relevant social plugin directly to your browser and it is displayed on our website. To prevent this, we use the double opt-in method. We have integrated the social plugins on our website so that the connection between the social plugins and the servers of the social networks is interrupted by default. If you communicate directly with a social network on our website via a social plugin and want to exchange data, you must click the relevant social plugin to activate it. Following the activation of a social plugin, we cannot influence the extent of the data collected by the relevant social network. We will therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge. By activating a social plugin, your IP address in conjunction with our website address will be transmitted to the relevant social network. If you are logged in to the social network when you visit our website, this information is assigned directly to your user account. If you interact with an activated social plugin, for example, if you click the “share”, “like” or “retweet” button, the relevant information will also be sent directly to the relevant social network and will also be stored in your user account. The social networks that you communicate with, will store your data in the form of user profiles and also use them for advertising purposes, market research and/or to tailor your websites as required. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise these rights, you must contact the social networks directly.
The data is processed to facilitate the easy and user-friendly communication with social networks.
9.3 Legal basis
The processing is necessary to protect the predominant legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose set out in paragraph 9.2.

11.1 Description of the processing
Our website uses content delivery networks (CDN). CDNs accelerate the loading of common fonts and icons because the files are transmitted by fast, local or underused servers of external service providers. We have integrated website icons (graphic symbols) of the external service providers on our website. These icons are directly loaded from a server of the external service providers. For this to be possible, your browser will send a request to these servers. As a result your IP address in conjunction with our website address may be transmitted to the servers of the external service providers.
The data is processed to visually improve the display of our website by integrating graphic symbols and to shorten the time it takes to load them.

13.1 Description of the processing
From time to time, we run lotteries on our Facebook page and/or Instagram profile. We first publish an invitation to participate in the lottery there. How you can participate in the lottery is explained in the linked terms and conditions of the lottery. By participating in the lottery, a lottery contract is concluded between you and us, which is free of charge for you. In the course of fulfilling the contract - namely to determine the winners and to distribute the prizes - we will collect personal data from you. After the closing date, we first collect Facebook and/or Instagram profile names of all participants. The winners are drawn by us and then notified via Facebook message or Instagram message. As a winner you will be asked to provide additional information (first and last name, address) so that we can send you the prize.
The processing is carried out for the purpose of conducting and processing a lottery.
13.3 Legal basis
The processing is necessary for the conclusion and fulfilment of the lottery agreement (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).
13.4 Storage period
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection. The profile names of the participants, as well as the further details of the winners will be deleted as soon as the lottery and the sending of the prizes are completed. The actions (comments, likes, postings) taken by participants in the context of participation on Facebook or Instagram are not deleted by us or, if applicable, cannot be deleted by us at all. However, as a user of the respective social network, you are able to delete them yourself.
The social networks also process your personal data in the USA and have submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield. Further information on the EU-US Privacy Shield can be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
To protect your personal data from external access, we have installed an SSL and/or TLS certificate on our website. SSL means “secure sockets layer” and TLS means “transport layer security” and encrypts the communication of data between a website and the user’s device. The SSL and/or TLS encryption is active when a small padlock symbol is displayed to the left of the address line in the browser. YOUR RIGHTS
With regard to the processing of data by our company described above, you can assert the following rights of data subjects:
15.1 Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
You have the right to ask us to confirm whether we are processing personal data concerning you. If this is the case, you have the right to information on this personal data and on the further information listed in Art. 15 GDPR under the conditions specified in Art. 15 GDPR.
15.2 Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
You have the right to request us to correct any incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, to complete incomplete personal data without undue delay.
15.3 Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR)
You have the right to request us to delete personal data relating to you without undue delay if one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 GDPR applies, for example if your data is no longer necessary for the purposes we pursue.
15.4 Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)s
You have the right to request us to restrict the processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 GDPR applies; for example, if you contest the accuracy of your personal data, data processing will be restricted for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of your data.
15.5 Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
You have the right, under the conditions set out in Art. 20 GDPR, to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
15.6 Right to withdraw consent (Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR)
If the data processing is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal is valid from the time of its assertion. In other words, it has effect for the future. The processing therefore does not become retroactively unlawful through the withdrawal of the consent.
15.7 Right to lodge a complaint (Art. 77 GDPR)
If you believe that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. You may exercise this right before a supervisory authority in the EU Member State of your place of residence, place of work, or the place where the alleged infringement occurred.
15.8 Prohibition of automated decision-making / profiling (Art. 22 GDPR)
Decisions that produce legal effects concerning you or significantly affect you may not be based solely on automated processing of personal data, including profiling. We hereby inform you that we do not use automated decision making including profiling with regard to your personal data. 15.9 Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR) If we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (to protect overriding legitimate interests), you have the right to object to this under the conditions set out in Art. 21 GDPR. However, this only applies if you have grounds relating to your particular situation. After an objection, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms. We also do not have to cease processing if it serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. In any case – regardless of your particular situation – you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing.
