8. Note to external links
This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links“). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When linking the external links for the first time, the provider checked the external content for possible legal infringements. At that time, no legal violations were apparent. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The setting of external links does not mean that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link as his own. A permanent control of the external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete indications of legal violations. However, if we become aware of any legal infringements, such external links will be deleted immediately.

9. YouTube

We use the option “- extended data protection mode -“ provided by YouTube.

When you access a page that has an embedded video, it connects to the YouTube servers and displays the content on the website by notifying your browser.

According to YouTube, only data is transmitted to the YouTube server in “- extended privacy mode -“ when you watch the video. If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, this information will be assigned to your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.

Further information on YouTube‘s data protection is provided by Google under the following link https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/

10. Social Media
We create online presences within social networks to communicate with users and interested people who are active in those networks and to be able to inform them about us.

The providers of these services may process user data outside the European Union. This may result in user risks, as, for example, it may be difficult to enforce user rights.

The social media site you have visited allows you to react to our posts, comment them, create your own user post, or send us private messages with personal concerns. We will use any data you surrender in this context that may be available to us (e. g. username, images, possibly interests, contact data) only for the purpose of customer communication and communication catering to special interests. Our aim is to make a platform available that enables us to give you up-to-date information, allows you to inform us about your concern and makes it possible for us to address this concern as fast as possible.

We will not process the data via the site beyond its basic functions. Please note that the service provider may use tracking tools or cookies independently of our use of the site.

We will inform you about our processing your data in the context of the online presences made available by us. In its decision of 5 June 2018, the ECJ confirmed the joint responsibility of service provider and site operator.

For details on data processing and your options to object to it (opt-out) please refer to the information given by our service providers. For enquiries regarding information or for exercising of user rights, please note that these are best addressed at the service providers. Only the providers have access to user data and can take direct action and give information. If you need help regardless, feel free to contact us.

11. Legal basis for processing
Insofar as we obtain consent for certain processing operations, such consent is based on Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract, for example for a shipment of goods or for pre-contractual measures, e.g. for inquiries, such processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. If our company is subject to a legal obligation through which the processing of personal data is required, for example in order to fulfil tax obligations, such processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. If any processing of personal data is not based on any of the above-mentioned legal bases, we shall process data in order to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company (improvement in the conduct of business activity) according to Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. We always make sure that no legitimate interest of the person concerned which outweighs our legitimate interest is precluded.

12. Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. At the end of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

Your data stored in the context of your use of our online presences will be deleted - to the extent we can - upon discontinuation of the site.

13. Rights of Data Subjects
In accordance with Art 15 of the GDPR you have the right to receive information about the data stored by us and the purpose of storage at any time. You can revoke your consent to store or use your personal data in writing at any time. You also have the right to object to processing for legitimate reason under Art. 21 of the GDPR.
