For sending newsletters with regular offers
For receipt of specific information and offers
For market research and customer surveys

For processing cookies subject to consent
You can withdraw any consent you have given at any time by sending us an informal message by email. The lawfulness of data processing already carried out will not be affected by the withdrawal of consent.
The lawful basis of the processing of personal data required for performing a contract to which you are a party is set out in Article 6 (1) b of the GDPR. This also applies to processing operations which are required to conduct pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the lawful basis is set out in Article 6 (1) c of the GDPR.
If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or a third party and such interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6 (1) f of the GDPR provides the lawful basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company is the conduct of our business activities.
Is data transferred to third parties?
We transfer personal data to third parties solely if and when this is necessary during contract processing, for example to the bank which has been instructed to process payments.
The lawful basis of this processing is Article 6 (1) b of the GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or for pre-contractual measures.
When cookies and tools are used for marketing purposes, personal data is transferred to the relevant providers. This transfer is based on your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) a of the GDPR.
Transfers to third countries
Insofar as we process data in a third country (i.e. outside of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or this occurs as part of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, we do so solely to the extent necessary for the fulfilment of our (pre-)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, in compliance with a legal obligation or in the pursuit of our legitimate interests. To the extent allowed by law or contract, we process data, or cause data to be processed, in a third country solely if and when the specific conditions set out in Art. 44 et seq. of the GDPR are applied. i.e. the processing is carried out (for example) on the basis of special guarantees or compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses“).
How long do we process your data for?
We only process your personal data for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage. Storage of data may continue beyond this time insofar as required by provisions adopted by European or national legislatures in EU regulations, laws or other legal statutes to which we are subject.
As soon as the purpose of storage has lapsed or a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased.
The data collected during registration will be stored by us for as long as you are registered on our website and will then be deleted. This statement is without prejudice to statutory retention periods.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are possible solely with your express consent. You may withdraw any previously given consent at any time by sending us an informal message by email. The lawfulness of data processing carried out prior to the withdrawal of consent will not be affected by the withdrawal.
Your right to object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6 (1) e or f of the GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.
The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Access, rectification, restriction and erasure
You have the right under the applicable statutory provisions to obtain at any time and free of charge information about your personal data that is stored, its origin and recipients, the purpose of the data processing and if applicable, a right to rectification, restriction or erasure of this data. You may contact us at any time by using the provided address to exercise these rights and to submit additional questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to data portability
You have the right to request the provision of any data that we process by automated means on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract to you or to third parties in a commonly used, machine-readable format.

Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
