information desk

You can request information from us as to whether we process your personal data. There is no right to information if the disclosure of the requested information would violate a duty of confidentiality or if the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular due to an overriding legitimate interest of a third party. Deviating from this, there may be an obligation to provide information if your interests outweigh the interests of confidentiality, especially taking into account impending damage. The right to information is also excluded if the data is only stored because it cannot be deleted due to statutory or statutory retention periods or only serves the purpose of data backup or data protection control, provided that providing information would require a disproportionate effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organizational measures.

  • the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority,

  • if the personal data has not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information about the origin of the data,

  • the existence of automated decision making including profiling and meaningful information about the logic involved as well as the scope and intended effects of automated decision making,

There is no entitlement to deletion if the deletion in the case of lawful non-automated data processing is not possible or only with disproportionately high effort due to the special type of storage and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the deletion is replaced by the restriction of processing.

Restriction of processing

You can ask us to restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:

  • You contest the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction can be requested for the duration that enables us to check the accuracy of the data.

  • The processing is unlawful and you request the restriction of the use of your personal data instead of deletion.

  • We are no longer required to process your personal data for the purposes of processing.

  • You have objection acc. Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR. The restriction of processing can be requested as long as it is not certain whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

Before we remove the restriction, we have a duty to let you know.

You have the right to data portability if the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 a) or Art. 9 Para. 2 a) GDPR) or on a contract to which you are a party and processing is carried out using automated processes. In this case, the right to data portability includes the following rights, provided this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other people: You can ask us to receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format . You have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance on our part. As far as technically feasible, you can request that we transfer your personal data directly to another person responsible.


If the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter e) GDPR (performing a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter f) GDPR (legitimate interest of the person responsible or a third party), you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons that arise from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter e) or Letter f) GDPR. After exercising your right to object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You can object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes at any time. This also applies to profiling associated with such direct marketing. After exercising this right to object, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.

You have the option of informing the objection informally by phone, e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our company's postal address listed at the beginning of this data protection declaration.

Withdrawal of consent

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. The revocation of consent can be communicated informally by phone, email, possibly by fax or to our postal address.

After receipt of the revocation, data processing based solely on your consent will be discontinued.


If you believe that the processing of your personal data is unlawful, you can lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority that is responsible for the place of your stay or place of work or the place of the alleged violation.
