II. Rights of data subjects
As a person concerned by the processing of your data, you have the following rights, the exercise of which you must exercise by contacting the above address:
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e‑mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of objection against data processing in special cases and against the use of data Direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling in so far as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection according to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the persons concerned have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, workplace or place of presumed infringement. The right of appeal shall be without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to limit the processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data has taken place unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you want it to be used, If you need to defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.

III. individual data processing operations
Data collection on our website
Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Cookies, which are necessary for the execution of the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of his services.
As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
If you only use the website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you would like to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security:
- IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (concrete page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Amount of data transferred in each request
- Website from which the request originates
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software.
The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest arises from the aforementioned purpose of presenting the website and its stability and security.
LogFiles are deleted after 7 days at the latest.
Inquiry by e‑mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e‑mail, telephone or fax, your request including all personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract — including the provision of our online service — or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
We will only store the data you send us via contact requests for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose. Mandatory statutory provisions — in particular statutory retention periods — shall remain unaffected.
Our online service
When using our service, i.e. sending files from the sender to the recipient and storing them on our server in the meantime, we do not process any personal data. Neither we nor our server provider have unencrypted access to the transmitted data at any time — neither during the sending process nor during storage on our servers.
Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is enabled on this website, Google will previously truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are further processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you is related to a person, this is excluded immediately, and the personal data is deleted immediately.
We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and to improve it regularly. The statistics obtained will enable us to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking
We use the offer of Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We pursue with it the interest to show you advertisement which is of interest for you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we use Ad Server Cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google advertisement, Google Ads stores a cookie in your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may find out and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways:
- by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third party cookies, you will not receive any advertisements from third parties;
- by disabling conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the “www.googleadservices.com” domain, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, which will be deleted if you delete your cookies;
- by disabling the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies;
- by permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We draw your attention to the fact that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this offer.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. You can find further information on data protection at Google here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html.

Payment providers and social media
On our website we offer the possibility to send us donations via PayPal. The provider of this payment service is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22–24 Boulevard Royal, L‑2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as “PayPal”). If you choose to pay via PayPal, the information you enter will be sent to PayPal. The purpose of this processing is to use PayPal’s electronic payment service. Background is the free support of our service.
We are obliged by commercial and tax law to store your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. However, after two years we will restrict the processing, i.e. your data will only be used to comply with legal obligations.
The transmission of your data to PayPal takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The storage is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR in conjunction with § 257 HGB and § 147 AO.
Social media hyperlinks
We currently use the following social media hyperlinks: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. Since we use links and no plug-ins, when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the respective social media platform. You can recognize the provider of the hyperlink by the mark on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the hyperlink via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and are thereby forwarded to the respective social media platform will the respective provider receive the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our online service. In addition, the data referred to in this declaration as LogFiles will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook, the IP address in Germany is anonymized immediately after collection, according to Facebook. By activating the hyperlink, personal data will be transferred from you to the respective provider and stored there (for US providers in the USA and thus in a third country without an appropriate level of data protection). Since the social media provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.
We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also do not have any information on the deletion of the collected data by the social media provider.
The social media provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the representation of demand-oriented advertising. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective social media provider to exercise this right. Via the hyperlinks we offer you the opportunity to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of hyperlinks is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the social media provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the social media provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the social media provider. If you click on the hyperlink and, for example, link the page, the social media provider also stores this information in your user account and communicates it publicly to your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this allows you to avoid being assigned to your profile by the social media provider.
Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and processing by the social media provider can be found in the following data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
