2. General information and obligation information
We would like to point out that data transmission via internet (e.g. communication via email) may have some security gaps. Gapless protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.
Information on the controller
The controller for data processing on this website is:
Im Ziegelhaus 13
63571 Gelnhausen, Germany
Telephone: +49 (0) 6051 49093-0
The controller is the natural person or legal entity deciding alone or with others regarding the purposes and means of personal data processing (e.g. name, email addresses, etc.).
Withdrawal of your consent for data processing
Many data processing procedures are only possible with your explicit consent. You may withdraw consent that was already granted at any time. An informal communication via email is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing carried out until the withdrawal remains unaffected.
Right of objection to data collection in specific cases as well as to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
In any and all instances where your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning yourself for the purposes of such marketing, which additionally includes profiling to the extent that it is related in any way to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data shall subsequently no longer be used for the purposes of direct marketing (objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 2. GDPR).
Right of complaint to the relevant supervisory authority
In case of violations against the GDPR, the data subject has a right to complain to a competent supervisory authority, especially in the member state where their usual place of residence, their workplace, or the location of the alleged violation is located. The right of complaint exists without prejudice to any other administrative law or legal remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to request the data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract in a common, machine-readable format for yourself or a third party. If you are requesting the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this shall only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.
Access, blocking, deletion, and correction
As part of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to access the personal data stored about you free of charge, to be informed of their origin and recipients, of the purpose of the data processing as well as, if needed, the right to correct, block, or delete these data. If you have questions on this or any other personal data topic, feel free to contact us at the address indicated in the legal notice at any time.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand a restriction in the processing of your personal data. To this end, you can contact us at the address indicated in the legal notice at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we shall generally require some time to review the situation. For the entire duration of the review, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your own personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data is/was carried out unlawfully, instead of the deletion of your data, you can request a restriction in processing.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you still need it in order to exercise, to defend, or to assert legal claims, instead of the deletion of your personal data, you have the right to demand a restriction in the processing of your personal data.
- If you file an objection in accordance with Art 21 Para. 1 General Data Protection Regulation, a weighting of your interests and ours must be carried out. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction in the processing of your own personal data.
- If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
Objection to marketing emails
The use of contact data published as part of the legal notice obligation for sending marketing and information material that has not been explicitly requested is hereby objected to. The operators of the websites expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the event of the unsolicited mailing of marketing information – for instance, through spam emails.

4. Data entry on our website
Server log data
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in server log data, which your browser automatically shares with us. This information is:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server query
- IP address
These data are not reconciled with other data sources.
The collection of these data takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – this requires the collection of the server log files.
If you send us queries via the contact form, your information from the query form, including the contact data that you have provided therein, shall be stored by us for the purpose of processing the query and in case of any follow-up questions. We will not forward these data without your consent.
The processing of the data contained in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR). You may withdraw consent at any time. An informal communication via email is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing procedures carried out until the withdrawal remains unaffected.
The data you provide in the contact form remain with us until you request that they be deleted, withdraw your consent for storage, or the purpose for the data storage no longer applies or exists (for instance, after the processing of your query has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
Login with Facebook Connect
Instead of directly logging into our website, you can log in with Facebook Connect. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland.
If you choose to log in with Facebook Connect and click on the "Log in with Facebook" / "Connect with Facebook" button, you are automatically forwarded to the Facebook platform. There, you can log in with your user data. Your Facebook profile is thus connected to our websites or our services. Through this connection, we get access to your data stored at Facebook. These are mainly:
- Facebook name
- Facebook profile and cover picture
- Facebook cover picture
- Email address stored at Facebook
- Facebook ID
- Facebook friends list
- Facebook "likes"
- Date of birth
These data are used for the creation, provision, and personalisation of your account.
The login with Facebook Connect and the related data processing procedures take place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we will need from you an email address as well as information that allow to us to verify that you are the owner of the indicated email address and that you consent to receiving the newsletter. No other data are collected or, if so, only on a voluntary basis. We shall exclusively use these data for sending the requested information and shall not communicate or forward them to any third parties.
The processing of the data contained in the newsletter registration form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR). You may withdraw at any time the consent given for the storage of the email address, as well as for its use for sending the newsletter, for instance via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing procedures already carried out remains unaffected.
The data you have stored with us for the purpose of obtaining the newsletter are kept by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after the cancellation of the newsletter. Data stored with us for other purposes remain unaffected by this.
