LIABILITY FOR CONTENT

The content of our pages is created with the greatest care. However we cannot accept any liability for the accuracy or completeness of the contents, or how up to date they are. As a service provider, we are responsible according to § 7 Para.1 of the TMG (German Tele-Media Law) for our own content under general law. However, according to §§ 8 to 10 of the German TMG (German Tele-Media Law), we are not under any obligation to monitor transferred or stored information from third parties or to investigate such information for evidence of illegal activity. This does not affect obligations under general law to remove or block the use of information. However, this liability only applies from the point in time when a concrete infringement of the law becomes known. As soon as we become aware of relevant breaches of the law, we will remove the content immediately.

LIABILITY FOR LINKS

Our offer contains links to external third party websites and we have no influence over the contents of those sites. Therefore we can accept no liability for this third party content. In each case, the provider or operator of the pages is responsible for them. At the time of setting up the link, the linked pages are checked for possible violations of the law. At the time the link was set up, no illegal contents were evident. However, a permanent check of the contents of linked pages is not feasible without concrete indications of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any violations of the law, we will remove such links immediately.

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision:

  • is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller,
  • is admissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
  • with the express consent of the data subject.

The data controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the data controller, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

Without prejudice to any available administrative or extrajudicial remedy, including the right of appeal to a supervisory authority under Article 77 DSGVO, they shall have the right to an effective judicial remedy if they consider that their rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of processing of their personal data in breach of this Regulation.

Use of social media plug-ins

(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube, MessengerPeople, Rapidmail, Ekomi, Trustpilot, Userlike. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the initial letter or the logo on the box. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer.

In addition, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Instagram, the IP address will be anonymized immediately after the data is collected, according to the respective providers in Germany. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is thus transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.

(2) We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider in order to exercise this right.

Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

(4) The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, the data we collect from you will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and she’s publicly communicating with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will help you avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.
