This website is operated by: Schweinfurth GmbH. It is very important to us to handle the data of our website visitors with confidence and to protect them in the best possible way. For this reason, we make every effort to comply with the requirements of the GDPR. In the following, we explain how we process your data on our website. To do this, we use the clearest and most transparent language possible so that you really understand what happens with your data.
2. General information
2.1 Processing of personal data and other terms Data protection applies to the processing of personal data. Personal means all data with which you can be personally identified. This is, for example, the IP address of the device (PC, laptop, smartphone, etc.) in front of which you are currently sitting. Such data is processed when ’something happens to it‘. Here, for example, the IP is transmitted from the browser to our provider and stored there automatically. This is then a processing (according to Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR) of personal data (according to Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR). These and other legal definitions can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.
2.3 The responsible The person responsible for data processing on this website is the controller within the meaning of the GDPR. This is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. You can reach the person in charge at:

Other personal data you share with us knowingly. Detailed information on this can be found below.
2.6 Data protection – Our view Data protection is more than just a chore for us! Personal data has a great value and mindful handling of this data should be a matter of course in our digitalized world.

Therefore, we undertake to comply with all legal provisions, collect only the data necessary for us and, of course, treat them confidentially.

4. This is also important
Finally, we would like to inform you in detail about your rights and how you will be informed about changes in data protection requirements.
4.1 Your Rights in detail
4.1.1 Right to information according to Art. 15 GDPR You can request information about whether personal data about you is being processed. If this is the case, you can request further information on the type and manner of processing. A detailed list can be found in Art. 15 (1) lit. a to h GDPR.
4.1.2 Right to rectification according to Art. 16 GDPR This right includes the correction of inaccurate data and the completion of incomplete personal data.
4.1.3 Right to deletion according to Art. 17 GDPR This so-called ‚right to be forgotten‘ gives you the right, under certain conditions, to request the deletion of personal data by the controller. This is generally the case if the purpose of the data processing has ceased to exist, if consent has been revoked or if the initial processing took place without a legal basis. A detailed list of reasons can be found in Art. 17 (1) a to f GDPR. Furthermore, this „right to be forgotten“ corresponds with the obligation of the controller under Art. 17 (2) GDPR to take appropriate measures to bring about a general erasure of the data.
4.1.4 Right to restriction of processing according to Art. 18 GDPR This right is subject to the conditions set out in Art. 18(1)(a) to (d).

4.1.6 Right of objection according to Art. 21 GDPR In principle, you can object to the processing of your personal data.

4.1.7 Right to „decision in individual cases“ according to Art. 22 GDPR In principle, you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing (including profiling) which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.

4.1.8 Other Right
The GDPR includes compehensive rights to inform third parties wether or how you have asserted rights under Art 16, 17 , 18 GDPR. This, however, only insofar as this is also possible or feasible with a reasonable effort. We would like to take this opportunity to once again inform you of your right to withdraw your consent in accordance with Article 7 (3) oft he GDPR. However, this does not affect the lawfulness oft he processing carried out up to that point. In addition, we would also like to inform you about your rights according to §§ 32 ff. BDSG, which, however, are largely congruent with the rights just described.
4.1.9 Right of appeal according to Art. 77 GDPR
You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority if you consider that any processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of this Regulation.
