SSL or TLS encryption
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the symbol of a lock in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, erasure and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to receive free information about your stored personal data, its origin as well as the recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to have this data corrected or erased.

Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that processing of your personal data is restricted. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to restrict processing applies in the following cases:
If you contest the accuracy of your personal data that we are holding, we will usually need time to verify this. While we are verifying this, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
If your personal data was/is processed unlawfully, you can request that the data processing is restricted instead of erased.
If we no longer require your personal data, but you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, you have the right to request the processing of your personal data is restricted instead of erased.
If you have raised an objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. Until it has been determined whose interests are overriding, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may (apart from being stored) only be processed with your consent or for establishing, exercising or defending legal claims or for protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
