The responsible party in terms of data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is:

You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details provided by our data protection officer:
- information about your data stored by us and its processing (Art. 15 GDPR),
- correction of incorrect personal data (Art. 16 GDPR),
- deletion of your data stored by us (Art. 17 GDPR),

Use of Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across browsers, we use “Google Web Fonts” from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”) to display fonts on this website.
Embedded YouTube Videos
We embed YouTube videos on our website. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereinafter “YouTube”). YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”). When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which websites you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you individually. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.
Revoke Your Consent
The provider does not currently offer the option of a simple opt-out or blocking of data transmission. If you wish to prevent your activities on our website from being tracked, please revoke your consent for the relevant cookie category or all technically unnecessary cookies and data transfers in the cookie consent tool. In this case, however, you may not be able to use our website at all or only to a limited extent.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
Information about your right to object according to Art. 21 GDPR
Individual Right of Objection following Art. 21 GDPR
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR.
If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Recipients of an Objection
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection statement will then apply to your next visit.
