§ 1 Warning about content
The free and freely accessible content of this website was created with the greatest possible care. However, the provider of this website does not guarantee the accuracy and timeliness of the free and freely accessible journalistic guides and news provided. Contributions identified by name reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the provider. Simply by calling up the free and freely accessible content, no contractual relationship is established between the user and the provider; in this respect, the provider’s legal commitment is lacking.
§ 2 External Links
This website contains links to third party websites („external links“). These websites are the responsibility of the respective operators. When the external links were first linked, the provider checked the third-party content to determine whether there were any legal violations. No violations of the law were evident at the time. The provider has no influence on the current and future design and on the content of the linked pages. The setting of external links does not mean that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link. A permanent control of the external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete indications of legal violations. With knowledge of legal violations, however, such external links will be deleted immediately.

Any use not permitted by German copyright and ancillary copyright law requires the prior written consent of the provider or the respective rights holder. This applies in particular to the duplication, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Below we inform you about the legal basis for the processing of personal data:
- If we have obtained your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR is the legal basis.
- If processing is necessary to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures that are carried out at your request, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR is the legal basis.
- If processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. statutory retention requirements), Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c) GDPR is the legal basis.
- If processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. d) GDPR is the legal basis.
- If processing is necessary to safeguard our or the legitimate interests of a third party and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh this, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR is the legal basis.
Disclosure of personal data to third parties and processors
We will never pass on any data to third parties without your consent. If this is the case, then the transfer takes place on the basis of the aforementioned legal basis, e.g. when data is passed on to online payment providers for the purpose of fulfilling the contract or on the basis of a court order or due to a legal obligation to disclose the data for the purposes of law enforcement, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
We also use processors (external service providers, e.g. for web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data is passed on to the processor in the context of an order processing agreement, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. We carefully select our processors, check them regularly and have given us the right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures and the data protection regulations in accordance with BDSG n.F. and comply with GDPR
Data transfer to third countries
The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data is therefore mainly processed by companies for which GDPR applies. Should the processing take place through the services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. GDPR. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called “standard contractual clauses”. For US companies, submission to the so-called “Privacy Shield”, the data protection agreement between the EU and the USA, meets these requirements.
Deletion of data and storage period
Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for the storage ceases to exist, unless their further storage is necessary for evidence purposes or if this is contrary to statutory retention obligations. This includes, for example, commercial law retention requirements for business letters in accordance with Section 257 (1) HGB (6 years) and tax retention requirements in accordance with Section 147 (1) AO for documents (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless the storage is still necessary for the conclusion of a contract or for the fulfillment of the contract.
Existence of automated decision making
We do not use automatic decision making or profiling.
