Your rights as a data subject

You have the possibility at any time to receive information free of charge (Art. 15 EU-DS-GVO) about which of your personal data we have stored. In addition, you can contact us at any time regarding your rights to rectification (Art. 16 EU-DS-GVO), restriction (Art. 18 EU-DS-GVO), deletion (Art. 17 EU-DS-GVO) and data portability (Art. 20 EU-DS-GVO).

Furthermore, you have the right to object to data processing (Art. 21 EU-DS-GVO).

If you have given your consent to the use of your data on our website, you can also revoke this from us free of charge, with effect for the future. To assert these rights, please contact: The same applies if you have questions about data processing by us.

You also have a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority. Please note the following in connection with rights of objection:

In the event that we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to this processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then 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 to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

When processing your personal data, the provisions of the EU-DS-GVO and all other applicable data protection regulations are observed. Legal bases for data processing result in particular from Art. 6 EU-DS-GVO.

We use your data to initiate business, to fulfill contractual and legal obligations, to implement the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to strengthen the customer relationship, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.

Your consent to data processing may also constitute a permission requirement under data protection law. Before giving your consent, we will inform you about the purpose of the data processing and about your right of withdrawal.

Disclosure to third parties

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of the statutory provisions or with the corresponding consent. Otherwise, we will not disclose your data to third parties unless we are obliged to do so by mandatory legal provisions (disclosure to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement agencies).

Recipients of the data / categories of recipients

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons receive your data who need it to fulfill contractual and legal obligations. In many cases, service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection contracts have been concluded with all service providers.

Secure transfer of your data

In order to protect the data stored by us in the best possible way against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continuously reviewed in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The exchange of data to and from our website is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, in each case using the current encryption protocols. In addition, there is the option of using alternative communication channels (e.g., the postal service).

Third-country transfer / intention to transfer data to third countries

Data is only transferred to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) if this is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship, is required by law or if you have given us your consent to do so.

Storage period of the data

We store your data as long as it is required for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continues to be stored. This applies in particular to retention obligations under commercial or tax law (e.g. German Commercial Code, German Fiscal Code, etc.). If there are no further storage obligations, the data is routinely deleted after the purpose has been achieved. In addition, we may retain data if you have given us your permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within the scope of statutory limitation periods, which can be up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.

Obligation to provide data

Various personal data are necessary for the establishment, implementation and termination of the debt relationship and the fulfillment of the associated contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions it provides.

We have summarized details of this for you in the above point. In certain cases, data must also be collected or made available due to legal requirements. Please note that it is not possible to process your request or carry out the underlying contractual relationship without providing this data.

Categories, sources and origin of data

Which data we process is determined by the respective context: this depends on whether you enter an inquiry in our contact form, for example, or whether you send us an application or submit a complaint.

Please note that we may also provide information separately in a suitable place for special processing situations, e.g. when you upload application documents or submit a contact request.

Server log files (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-DS-GVO)

We collect the following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
  • Website that you visit
  • Date and time of your access
  • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address

This data is stored separately and is not combined with any other data you may have provided. It is therefore impossible to draw conclusions about specific persons.
We only require the information from the server log files for statistical reasons in order to be able to optimize our Internet presence.

Newsletter (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO)

We offer you the possibility to order a newsletter. For this purpose, we need your e-mail address as well as your function in order to provide you with information tailored to your needs.
You can voluntarily provide us with further data so that we can get to know you better. The data will only be used for sending the newsletter. In connection with the newsletter dispatch, we are supported by service providers who also receive your personal data required for this purpose. The contract required under data protection law has been concluded with them. As soon as you have registered for the newsletter, we will send you a confirmation e-mail with a link to confirm your registration.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by revoking your consent. You will find a corresponding link, for the possibility of revocation, in every newsletter sent. We will then immediately delete your data in connection with the newsletter dispatch.

Links to other providers

Our website also contains - clearly recognizable - links to the websites of other companies. As far as links to websites of other providers exist, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore, no guarantee or liability can be assumed for these contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of these pages.

The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations and recognizable infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, such links will be removed immediately.

Automated individual case decisions

We do not use any purely automated processing procedures to bring about a decision.

Cookies (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-DSG-VO)

Our internet pages use so-called cookies in several places. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser (locally on your hard drive). Based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-DS-GVO), we use technically necessary cookies that are required for the operation of the website and to ensure its functionality. Depending on the purpose, these are stored permanently - even after the session has ended - (so-called persistent cookies, e.g. opt-out) or are deleted when the browser is closed (so-called session cookies - these are only valid for one browser session).

In addition, we also set other cookies with your consent. These cookies enable us to analyze how users use our websites. This enables us to design the website content according to visitor needs. In addition, the cookies enable us to measure the effectiveness of a particular advertisement and to have it placed, for example, depending on the thematic interests of users. The legal basis for this is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO).

If you have given your consent here, you can of course revoke it at any time without giving reasons via our cookie settings.

Change cookie setting

Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. Of course, you can also deactivate, restrict or even delete cookies on your end device manually via your browser settings or software-supported.

Please note: If you deactivate the setting of cookies, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

Creation of user profiles or use of cookies that are not purely functional (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO)

On our website, we use the following tools or services:

Google Tag Manager
Our website uses the Google Tag Manager. With Google Tag Manager, website tags can be managed via an interface. The Google Tag Manager tool itself is a cookie-free domain. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The tool takes care of triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

As a result, this means that the Google Tag Manager does not collect any data, but merely plays out other tools, which in turn may collect data.
