3. Your rights
You may assert the following rights free of charge against any person responsible for the processing of your personal data:
- Right to withdraw your consent.
- Right of access: You may request access to your personal information that we process.
- Right to object: You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons relating to your special situation. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website.

- Right to erasure: You can request the erasure of your personal data.
- Right to restriction of processing: you have the right to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data.
- Right to data portability: you have the right to receive or have a third party receive the data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in the performance of a contract. This right only applies to (electronically) data processing carried out by automated means whereat the processing is either based on your consent or on a contract pursuant and that you have us provided with the data yourself. Therefore, the right is not applicable to the log files collected via our website.
For the assertion of claims, please contact the controller or data protection officer (find contact details above). Should you wish to contact us by e-mail, please use an address used to access our system so that we can identify you.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint about the controller’s processing of your personal data with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection.
4. Legal Bases for Processing Your Data
In principle, we only process data when a legal basis is available. We specify the legal basis in the segments about data processing, but in general, we are permitted to process your personal data if one of the following conditions applies.
- The data subject’s consent for the processing of personal data.
- Processing personal data as a necessity for the fulfilment of a contract in return for payment or free of charge. This shall also apply to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
- The processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject.
- The processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights, and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the above-mentioned interests.
5. Retention Periods
Statutory retention obligations arise, for example, from Section 257 (1) HGB (6 years for commercial books, inventories, opening balances, annual financial statements, commercial letters, accounting vouchers, etc.) and from Section 147 (1) AO (10 years for books, records, management reports, accounting vouchers, commercial and business letters, documents relevant for taxation, etc.).
Our website is not intended for children under the age of 16.
7. Recipients of Data, Third-Country Transfers, Linked Third-Party Websites
We do use external service providers for the processing of your data and hereby want to inform you about the third parties and processors we transfer data to. We use various third-party services on our website. These have different purposes, which we will discuss in more detail in the individual descriptions. These services serve to make our website functional, secure, and visually appealing, as well as to optimise its content on an ongoing basis. In general, we transfer data to the following categories of recipients:
Postal providers, insurances, telecommunications provider, insurance broker and subject matter experts for assessing and regulating of claims, public authorities, provided a justified request, credit institutions and payment service providers, external accountant, auditors and legal counsel.
In the case of cross border transfer (transfer to a third-country or to an international organisation) we do inform you separately about the recipient, and the correspondent legal basis. However, in the case that your data is transferred outside of the European Union either to Controllers or Processors, the transfer is justified by the Standard Contractual Clauses according to the Annex of the Commission Decision EU/2021/914 or by other safeguards.
As far as processors are being used, they are bound by our instructions under data protection law. These service providers are our contractors and assist with processing of your personal data, for example, to provide this website. These contractors have been carefully selected and authorised and are regularly monitored. The authorisations are based on agreements for processing. The processors do not perform any independent processing for their own purposes.
8. Data Security
We apply technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data that is collected, in particular against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against the attack of unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. To protect your data in transit we use encryption technologies (TLS).
9. Automated Decision Making
We do not use automated decision making, including profiling.
