We take the protection of your personal data extremely seriously and treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the data protection regulations set out in law and in this data protection statement.
Using our web pages does not generally require you to disclose personal information. Where personal information is collected on this website (e.g. name, address, telephone number or email addresses), it is done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be divulged to third parties without your express consent.
We would draw your attention to the fact that the transfer of data on the Internet (by email communication, for example) may be subject to security breaches. It is not possible to protect such data completely against access by third parties.
The following regulations are intended to inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of the provider’s collection, use and processing of personal data.
II. Key information relating to data processing
We collect, process and use users’ personal data solely in accordance with the relevant data protection specifications. This means that we only make use of users’ data when we have legal permission to do so or when we have obtained consent.
We use the latest technology to implement organisational, contractual and technical security measures that ensure we comply with the data protection legislation, to protect the data we manage against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss or destruction, and access by unauthorised persons.
Collection, processing and use of personal data
Users’ personal data are used for the purposes of making our website and associated services available.
Where we transmit data to third parties we do so on the basis of consent or where this is permitted by law, in order to fulfil our contractual obligations to users.
If you contact us, we store your information in order to enable us to process your enquiry and to answer any subsequent questions you may have.
When they are no longer required or no legal obligation of retention applies, your personal data will be deleted.

- (2) the categories of personal data which are being processed;
- (3) the recipients and/or categories of recipients to which the relevant personal data have been or are being disclosed;

- (8) the existence of automatic decision-making including profiling in accordance with GDPR Art. 22(1) and (4) and – in these cases at least – meaningful information about the logic involved as well as the extent and the envisaged consequences for the data subject of processing of this nature.
You have the right to request information on whether personal data relating to you will be transmitted to a third country or to an international organisation. In this regard, it is open to you to request that you are informed about appropriate guarantees in relation to such transmission, in accordance with GDPR Art. 46.
b) Right to rectification
To the extent that any personal data being processed that relate to you are incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to have them rectified and/or completed by the controller. The controller shall undertake such rectification without delay.
c) Right to restriction of processing
Under the following conditions, you can request the restriction of processing of personal data relating to you:
- (1) when you contest the accuracy of the personal data, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- (2) when the processing is unlawful and you decline the erasure of the personal data and instead request that their use be restricted;

- (4) when you have filed an objection against processing pursuant to GDPR Art. 21(1), pending the verification of whether the legitimate interests of the controller override your interests.
If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, then such data may only be processed – with the exception of storage – with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If processing has been restricted in accordance with the conditions above, then you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
d) Right to erasure
Obligation to erase
You can request the erasure of personal data relating to you by the controller without delay, and the controller will be obliged to erase such data without delay, where one of the following reasons applies:
- (1) The personal data relating to you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
- (2) You withdraw the consent on which processing was based, in accordance with GDPR Art. 6 (1)(a) or Art. 9(2)(a), and no further legal basis exists for processing.
- (3) In accordance with GDPR Art. 21(1), you object to processing and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for such processing, or you object to processing in accordance with GDPR Art. 21(2).
- (4) The personal data relating to you have been processed unlawfully.

Transmission of information to third parties
Where the controller has made public personal data relating to you and is obliged to erase such data in accordance with GDPR Art. 17(1) GDPR, the controller shall, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers who are processing the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the erasure of all links to, or copies or replications of, such personal data.
The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that processing is necessary
- (1) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
- (2) for the fulfilment of a legal obligation that requires processing by Union law or that of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
- (3) for reasons of the public interest in the area of public health in accordance with GDPR Art. 9(2)(h) and (i) and Art. 9(3);
- (4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes in accordance with GDPR Art. 89(1 ), insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or severely impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
- (5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
5. Right to information
If you have established the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing by the controller, the controller is obliged to communicate any rectification or erasure of data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data relating to you have been disclosed, unless this proves to be impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the controller.
6. Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transmit such data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom you have provided your personal data, insofar as
- (1) the processing is based on consent in accordance with GDPR Art. 6(1)(a) or Art. 9(2)(a) or on a contract pursuant to GDPR Art. 6(1)(b) and
- (2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right, you further have the right to cause the personal data relating to you to be transmitted directly by one controller to another, where this is technically feasible. The rights and freedoms of other persons may not be adversely affected by this.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
7. Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your own particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you being undertaken on the basis of GDPR Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, including profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data relating to you unless s/he 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.
Where personal data relating to you are being processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you for such marketing; this includes profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, personal data relating to you shall no longer be processed for such purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services – and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – it is open to you to exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
8. Right to withdraw your consent under data protection law
You have the right to withdraw your consent under data protection law at any time. Withdrawing your consent does not affect the legality of processing undertaken on the basis of your consent prior to its withdrawal
9. Automated decision making in individual cases, including profiling
You have the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which produces legal effects for you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision
- (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between you and the controller;
- (2) is permissible on the basis European Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and such regulations include appropriate measures to guarantee your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
- (3) is undertaken with your explicit consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in GDPR Art. 9(1), unless GDPR Art. 9(2)(a) or (g) apply, and suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.
In the cases referred to in (1) and (3) above, the controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, which include as a minimum the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your point of view and to challenge the decision.
10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or legal remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you live or work or in which the alleged infringement took place, if you are of the opinion that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which you submit the complaint, shall inform you about the progress and the outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a legal remedy pursuant to GDPR Art. 78.
