7 Data protection rights of the data subject
If you have any questions about your personal data, you can contact us at any time in writing or by telephone. You have the following rights under the GDPR:

7.1 The right to information (sub-item Art. 15 DSGVO).
You have the right to obtain information at any time about which categories and information about your personal data are processed by us for which purpose and how long and according to which criteria these data are stored and whether automated decision-making including profiling is used in this context. You also have the right to know to which recipients or categories of recipients your data have been or will be disclosed, in particular to recipients in third countries or international organisations. In this case, you also have the right to be informed about appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer of your personal data.
In addition to the right to complain to the supervisory authority and the right to information about the origin of your data, you have the right to erasure, correction and the right to restriction of or objection to the processing of your personal data.

In all the above-mentioned cases, you have the right to request a free copy of your personal data processed by us from the data processor. For any additional copies that you request or that go beyond the data subject's right to information, we are entitled to charge a reasonable administrative fee.

7.2 The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)

You have the right to request the rectification of your inaccurate personal data without delay and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data, also by means of a supplementary declaration.

If you wish to exercise the right to rectification, you can contact our data protection officer or the controller at any time.

7.3 The right to erasure (Art. 17 DSGVO)
You have the right to request the immediate deletion of your data ("right to be forgotten") in particular if the storage of the data is no longer necessary, you revoke your consent to data processing, your data has been processed unlawfully or has been collected unlawfully and there is a legal obligation to delete it under EU or national law.
However, the right to be forgotten does not apply if there is an overriding right to freedom of expression or freedom of information, the storage of data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (e.g. storage obligations), archiving purposes oppose the deletion or the storage serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

7.4 The right to restriction (Art. 18 DSGVO)
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your data by the controller if the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, you refuse the erasure of your personal data and instead request a restriction of the processing, if the necessity for the processing purpose ceases to apply or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1), as long as it has not yet been determined whether legitimate grounds on our part prevail over yours.

7.5 The right to data portability (Art. 20 DSGVO)
You have the right to the portability of your personal data, which you have provided to our company in a common format, so that you can have your personal data transferred to another controller without hindrance, provided, for example, that you have given your consent and the processing is carried out by means of an automated procedure.

7.6 The right to object (Art. 21 DSGVO)
You have the right to object at any time to the collection, processing or use of your personal data for the purposes of direct marketing or market and opinion research, as well as general commercial data processing, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms.
Furthermore, you cannot exercise your right to object if a legal provision provides for the collection, processing or use of the data or obliges the collection, processing or use.

7.7 Right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO in conjunction with § 19 BDSG)
You are granted the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority if you believe that there has been a breach in the processing of your personal data.

7.8 Right to revoke consent granted under data protection law (Art. 7 (3) DSGVO)
You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time and without giving reasons. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us before the EU General Data Protection Regulation came into force.

8 Legal basis for processing
When processing personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 b) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.  This regulation also includes processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 c) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1), sentence 1 f) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities as well as in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of the security of our online offer.

9. transfer of data to third parties
We generally do not sell or lend user data. A transfer to third parties beyond the scope described in this data protection declaration only takes place if this is necessary for the processing of the respective requested service.
We only transfer data if there is a legal obligation to do so. This is the case if state institutions (e.g. law enforcement agencies) request information in writing or a court order has been issued.
Personal data is not transferred to so-called third countries outside the EU/EEA area.

10. legal or contractual regulations on the provision of personal data and possible consequences of non-provision

We hereby point out that the provision of personal data is required by law in certain cases (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on/of the contractual partner). For example, it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that the person concerned/the contractual partner must provide his/her personal data so that his/her request (e.g. order) can be processed by us at all. An obligation to provide personal data arises primarily when a contract is concluded. If no personal data is provided in this case, the contract with the data subject cannot be concluded. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject may contact our data protection officer or the controller. The data protection officer or the controller will then inform the data subject whether the provision of the required personal data is prescribed by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract and whether an obligation arises from the concerns of the data subject to provide the personal data or what the consequences are for the data subject of not providing the requested data.

11. existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling in our business relationships.
