Data Processing and Purpose

The data provided by you will only be processed for the purposes for which we have collected and received it. Any further processing beyond this does not take place.

Your data will be processed beyond the aforementioned purpose if the necessary legal requirements pursuant to art. 6 para. 4 GDPR have been met. The relevant information obligations pursuant to art. 13 para. 3 GDPR and art. 14 GDPR are taken into account in this respect.

Legal Basis for Data Processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is art. 6 GDPR, unless there are specific legal provisions. The following possibilities come into question:

  • Consent (art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR
  • Data processing for the performance of contracts (art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR
  • Data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests (art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR
  • Data processing to fulfil a legal obligation (art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR

If your personal data is processed on the basis of consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

If the processing of the data is based on a balancing of interests, you as a person have the right to object to the processing of the personal data, taking into account the provisions of art. 21 GDPR.

Duration of Data Storage

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

Insofar as legal storage obligations exist, e.g. in commercial law or tax law, the relevant personal data will be stored for the duration of the storage obligation. After the retention period has expired, we will check whether further processing is necessary. If a requirement no longer exists, the data will be deleted or destroyed.

In principle, we check data at regular intervals with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the amount of data, this check is carried out with regard to specific data types or purposes of processing.

You may request information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time. In the event that data processing is not necessary, you may request deletion or restriction of processing.

Disclosure of Data

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, if the transfer permissible on the basis of a balancing of interests within the meaning of art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, if we are legally obliged to pass it on or if you have given your consent to this.

Place of Data Processing

Your personal data is processed by us exclusively in computer centres of the European Union (EU).

Rights of the Data Subject

You have the right to information about the personal data processed by us about your person. In the case of a request for information which is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then demand proof from you that you are the person you claim to be.

Furthermore, you have the right to correction or deletion or to restriction of the processing to the extent to which you are legally entitled to do so. Moreover, you have the right to object to the processing within the scope of the statutory provisions. The same applies to a right to data transfer.

In particular, you have a right of objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) and (2) GDPR against the processing of your data in connection with direct advertising if this is carried out on the basis of a balancing of interests.

Contact data within the scope of the data subject's rights can be found in the legal notice. You can also contact us via the following e-mail address:

Use of Google Analytics

Since the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information voted in favour of Google on the basis of the decision by the association of all German State supervisory authorities (Düsseldorfer Kreis) to design analysis procedures for measuring the range of Internet services in accordance with data protection regulations, Google Analytics can be used in accordance with data protection regulations and without complaint under certain conditions. It goes without saying that we adhere to these requirements. In particular, we point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to guarantee anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through a single interface.

Privacy Policy on the Use and Usage of YouTube

The data controller has integrated YouTube components into this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the internet portal.

YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

Each time a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated into one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller, the YouTube component automatically prompts the internet browser on the data subject's information technology system to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information and Google's applicable privacy policy can be found at As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google obtain information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting by calling up a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged on to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this occurs regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want YouTube and Google to receive such information, they may prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before visiting our website.

The data protection regulations published by YouTube, which can be accessed at, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
