II. Data processing on our website

Data security on our website

To ensure the security of our website, we use a valid state-of-the-art SSL certificate. A website encrypted with SSL transmits personal data to the server in an encrypted form so that it is impossible for third parties to intercept or read it. A certificate verifies our identity. Depending on your browser, you can recognize that a secure connection exists by the display of a lock symbol. By clicking on the lock symbol, you can view our online proof of identity. By encrypting the transmission, you can assume that your entered data is sufficiently protected against unauthorized access during transmission according to the state of the art. 

Protection of minors

Our offer is basically directed at adults. Persons under the age of 18 may not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians.

Hosting

The hosting services used by us serve to provide the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services, which we use for the purpose of operating this online offer.

Amazon Cloudfront

We use the Content Delivery Network (CDN) Amazon CloudFront from Amazon Web Services EMEA SARL, 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (AWS) to increase the security and delivery speed of our website. This corresponds to our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). A CDN is a network of globally distributed servers that is able to deliver optimized content to the website user. For this purpose, personal data may be processed in server log files by AWS. 

AWS is a recipient of your personal data and acts as a processor for us. 

The processing of the data provided under this section is not required by law or contract. The functionality of the website is not guaranteed without the processing.

These measures are based on the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs). For more information, please visit: https://d1.awsstatic.com/legal/aws-gdpr/AWS_GDPR_DPA.pdf 

Website provision and log files

The entry of personal data is not necessary for the purely informational use, i.e. if you do not otherwise transmit information to us, of our website. 

Nevertheless, every time our website is called up, personal data is automatically collected in addition to information from the system of the calling computer or end device of the user, which your browser transmits to our server. The following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you, is collected by us in this context:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • The user's Internet service provider
  • The IP address of the user
  • The operating system of the user's terminal device
  • Date and time of access
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Amount of data transferred in each case
  • The previous website from which the user accessed our website
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software

The legal basis for the temporary storage of this data in so-called log files are our legitimate interests as the responsible website operator according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR, to ensure the technical presentation and stability and security of the website.

The temporary storage of the user's IP address by our system is technically necessary to enable delivery of the website to the browser used by the user in his terminal device. For this purpose, the user's IP address must necessarily remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage of the above data in the log files is done to ensure the functionality of our website. In addition, we use this data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems (e.g. attack detection). An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. The above-mentioned data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after 14 days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible if there are indications of an illegal attack on our systems.

Cookies

When using our website, cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the end device assigned to the browser used by the user and the respective service provider that sets the cookie receives certain information. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. As a rule, they serve to make the Internet offer as a whole more user-friendly and effective. The legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies for the operation of the website is Section 25 (2) No. 2 TTDSG, if the storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment or access to information already stored in the end user's terminal equipment is absolutely necessary for the provider of a telemedia service to be able to provide a telemedia service expressly requested by the user. For the processing of personal data by technically required cookies, this is done to protect our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR, to design and optimize our website in a user-friendly manner. For all technically unnecessary cookies, Section 25 (1) TTDSG applies, for which consent is obtained. Insofar as personal data is also processed by technically unnecessary cookies, consent under data protection law will be obtained if necessary, in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR, if no other legal basis should exist in accordance with Art. 6 (1) GDPR.

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

Transient cookies

These cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. These cookies are technically necessary for the optimization and presentation of the website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser. Session cookies are usually technically necessary for the operation of the website and are therefore set on the legal basis of § 25 para 2 No. 2 TTDSG.

Persistent cookies

These cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

Insofar as the third-party cookies used are not technically necessary for the operation of the website or provision of the service, consent is obtained via a consent banner or consent management platform in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG. Insofar as personal data is also processed by these services and / or cookies, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, unless there is another legal basis for the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR.

Google Maps

To make it easier for you to find the location of our organization, we have integrated map material from the Google Maps service of Google LLC into our website via an API for the visual display of geographical information in interactive maps on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. In order to display the content in your browser, Google must receive your IP address, otherwise Google would not be able to show you this embedded content.

Weglot

Our website uses Weglot, an EU translation and text management software provided by Weglot, 138, rue Pierre Joigneaux, BOIS-COLOMBE, 92270, Paris, France, for website optimization purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests under Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

This includes, but is not limited to, detecting original content, translating that content into one or more languages selected by the user from a list of available languages on the website, hosting the translations, and distributing them to users of the application. As part of the activities of its business, it is likely that Weglot will collect and process personal data about visitors to the Playfield Website.

Weglot is responsible for these various data processing operations within the meaning of the GDPR. These various data processing operations are described in detail in Weglot's privacy policy: https://weglot.com/privacy/  

Use of social media buttons

We currently use the following social media buttons: [Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and Instagram. We use the so-called two-click solution for this. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the buttons. You can recognize the provider of the social media button via the logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it, the provider receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our online offer. In the case of Facebook, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection. By activating the button, personal data from you is therefore transmitted to the respective provider and stored there (in the case of US providers, in the USA). Since the social media provider collects the data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via the security settings of your browser. 

We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider. The data processing is carried out by the respective social media provider as its own controller within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR.

The social media provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. 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 buttons, we offer you the opportunity to interact with the 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 the buttons is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 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 to the social media provider, the data we collect is directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and link to the page, for example, the provider also saves this information in your user account and shares it publicly with 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 an assignment to your profile with the social media provider. 

For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the social media provider, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers communicated below. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.

Information about newsletter recipients (as described above), is stored on MailChimp's servers in the USA. MailChimp processes this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on behalf of Spielfeld. In addition, MailChimp may process this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and display of newsletters, for economic purposes and to determine the location of newsletter recipients.

You can read MailChimp's privacy policy here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy  

Newsletter and e-mail marketing

The Spielfeld newsletters contain a "web beacon". This is a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened.

This technical data is used to improve the services, identify target groups and analyze reading behavior based on retrieval locations and access times. This is done on the basis of your IP address. 

The statistical surveys also measure whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons (including to ensure that you can unsubscribe), this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. Neither Spielfeld nor Mailchimp use this information to monitor individual users. The analytics are used to monitor the reading habits of our users with the goal of adjusting content across newsletters and ensuring that our content remains relevant to our audience. 

After you have signed up for the newsletter and given the appropriate consent, Spielfeld and Mailchimp process data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit.a GDPR. We collect your email address so that we can send you our newsletter. Your company name and professional position are used to personalize the content of the newsletter. The collection of further personal data (first and last name, IP address, etc.) is used to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used and to process unsubscribe requests. This data is deleted as soon as the purpose of its collection has been achieved. In principle, this data is stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. All other data collected during subscription will be deleted after a period of 7 days. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided in the newsletter and revoke your given consent at any time with effect for the future.

Contact by e-mail

We can be contacted via the e-mail addresses provided. In this case, the personal data of the sender, i.e. the user, transmitted with the inquiry will be stored. In this context, we would like to point out that transmission as an unencrypted e-mail involves certain security risks, as it is not possible to exclude the possibility of reading or unauthorized access. The processing of this data, which is transmitted in the course of sending a request, is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR of our legitimate interests to answer your request satisfactorily. If the request is aimed at the fulfillment of an existing contract or the conclusion of a new contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR for the initiation/fulfillment of a contract. The processing of this personal data serves us solely to process the contact.  Your data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective request is answered and the conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and no contract has been concluded. Inquiries about the rental relationship and membership are stored for the duration of the existing rental relationship and membership.

All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case, provided that there are no legal retention periods to the contrary.

Application for our job offers

If you are interested in one of our job offers and would like to apply, please send us your complete application documents in PDF format by e-mail to the e-mail address provided or by post to our postal address. This includes a cover letter, curriculum vitae and your existing references. If your application documents contain photographs, we consider this to be implied consent to the processing of the photograph. In accordance with Art. 7 (3) sentence 1 GDPR, you are entitled to revoke this consent at any time.

We would also like to point out that certain security risks (such as unauthorized reading, unauthorized access, infection with malware, loss of data, etc.) exist if your documents are transmitted by e-mail without encryption and cannot be ruled out. Your application documents will only be forwarded to the relevant employees within our cooperative for processing. The review of your application documents is carried out for the purpose of initiating an employment relationship on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG.

Should an employee relationship be established after the application process has been completed, we will require your personal data to implement the employee contract on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. If the outcome of the application process is negative, we will delete the application documents 6 months after the end of the application process, unless you have given us permission to store your data for a longer period of time and there are no legal retention periods to the contrary.

Unsolicited application

If there are no suitable vacancies available at the moment, you are also welcome to send us an unsolicited application. Your application will be processed on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR for the establishment and implementation of an employment relationship pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR. Due to our legitimate interest in defending or asserting legal claims according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, we store your application documents for up to 6 months, unless you give us your consent to store your application documents for a longer period.

HeavenHR 

The careers page of the Spielfeld website is hosted by Heaven HR, a human resources management platform of HeavenHR GmbH, Mittenwalder Straße 6 10961 Berlin, Germany as part of an order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. 

For more information on data protection on the HeavenHR website, please refer to their privacy policy at http://heavenhr.com/web/DE/de/datenschutz  .

Recipients of the data or categories of recipients

Within our organization, those entities will have access to your data that need it to fulfill contractual and legal obligations.

External service providers (order processors)

Your data will be shared with our IT and software service providers for the maintenance and support of IT systems and software to assist us in providing our services.

Processing of your personal data by contracted service providers takes place within the framework of order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.

Transfers to third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) or if this is done in the context of using third-party services or disclosing, or transferring data to third parties, this is only done if it is done to fulfill our (pre-)contractual obligations, due to a legal obligation, to protect our legitimate interests, consent is granted or another legal basis allows it. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we transfer data to third countries only if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. A transfer is then only made on the basis of an EU adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR or subject to appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 (2) GDPR, such as EU standard data protection clauses or binding internal data protection rules, so-called Binding Corporate Rules (BCR). In addition, data may be transferred to third countries for certain exceptional cases, e.g. for the fulfillment of a contract or a granted consent in accordance with Art. 49 GDPR.

Data transfer to the USA

Among other things, services of companies based in the USA are integrated on our website. If these services are active, your personal data could be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We inform that the USA is currently not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law according to the case law of the ECJ. Due to the surveillance laws in the USA, US service providers may be obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without data subjects being able to appeal against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities, such as intelligence agencies, may process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on servers of US service providers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Storage of data 

To the extent necessary, we process and store personal data for the duration of the business relationship. This also includes the initiation and processing of a contract. For the duration of the existence of warranty and guarantee claims, the personal data required for this purpose are stored. In addition, we store personal data insofar as we are legally obligated to do so. Corresponding obligations to provide proof and to store data result from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The periods specified there for storage or documentation generally range from six to ten years in accordance with commercial and tax law requirements under § 257 HGB and § 147 AO. We delete personal data of the person concerned as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies and legal retention periods do not prevent a deletion.

III. Data processing within the scope of our business services

Data processing of natural persons as contractual and business partners, external service providers, interested parties and contact persons 

We process the data of our contractual partners and interested parties as well as clients, suppliers, service providers and customers in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR in order to provide them with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The data processed in this context, the type, scope and purpose and the necessity of their processing, are determined by the underlying contractual relationship. The data processed includes the master data of our contractual partners (e.g. names and addresses), contact data (e.g. mail addresses and telephone numbers) as well as contractual data (e.g. services used, contract contents, contractual communication, names of contact persons) and payment data (e.g. bank details, payment history). As a matter of principle, we do not process special categories of personal data, unless these are components of a commissioned or contractual processing. We process data that are required for the justification and fulfillment of contractual services and point out the necessity of their disclosure, unless this is evident to the contractual partners. Disclosure to external persons or companies is made only if it is necessary in the context of a contract. When processing the data provided to us within the scope of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client as well as the legal requirements.

In the context of the use of our online services, we may store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests of the user to protect against misuse and other unauthorized use. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless it is necessary for the prosecution of our claims pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR or there is a legal obligation to do so pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. GDPR.

The deletion of the data takes place when the data is no longer required for the fulfillment of contractual or legal duties of care as well as dealing with any warranty and comparable obligations. In all other respects, the statutory retention obligations apply.

Direct advertising

If we receive your e-mail address and postal address in the course of concluding a contract, we may process this data in order to inform you about our own similar product and service offers by e-mail and post from now on. If you do not wish to receive any further advertising information by e-mail or post, you can object to the use of your contact data for advertising purposes at any time with effect for the future without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. You can send your objection by mail or e-mail to the following contact addresses.

Recipients of the data or categories of recipients

Within our organization, those entities will have access to your data that need it to fulfill contractual and legal obligations.

External service providers (order processors)

Your data is shared with service partners, e.g. IT and software service providers for maintenance and support, to assist us in providing our services.

Processing of your personal data by contracted service providers takes place within the framework of order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.

Other service providers, partners and third parties

We may cooperate with other partners if it is necessary to fulfill our service offerings or if we are legally obligated to disclose data. These may be the following partners or third parties: 

  • Credit institutions and payment service providers
  • credit agencies
  • Disclosure to public authorities or by court order
  • advertising agencies
  • Document shredding companies, logistics
  • Advice and consulting, auditors
  • insurance companies
  • Law firms and competent jurisdiction

It is important to us to process your data within the EU. However, it may happen that we use service providers operating outside the EU. In these cases, we ensure that an adequate level of data protection is established before transferring your personal data. This means that a level of data protection comparable to the standards within the EU is achieved via EU standard data protection contracts or an EU adequacy decision.

Origin of personal data

We process personal data that we receive in the course of our business relationship. In addition, to the extent necessary for the provision of our services and for the performance of contracts, we process personal data that we have permissibly received from third parties (e.g. credit agencies) (e.g. for the execution of orders, for the performance of contracts or on the basis of consent given by you). In addition, we process personal data that we have permissibly obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. commercial and association registers, press, media) and are permitted to process.

Categories of personal data

We process the following categories of personal data about you:

Personnel master data (name, address and other contact data, date of birth), if applicable order and contract data (e.g. delivery order), payment data, data from the fulfillment of our contractual obligations, advertising and sales data, documentation data (data from consulting and service discussions) and comparable data.

IV. Rights of data subjects

Rights of the data subjects

If personal data of a user is processed, he is a "data subject" within the meaning of the GDPR. He or she is entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis us as the data controller:

  • Right to information
  • Right to rectification
  • Right to restriction of processing
  • Right to deletion
  • Right to information
  • Right to data portability
  • Right to object
  • Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
  • Right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority

Information, blocking, deletion and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if the legal requirements are met, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. 

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data has happened / is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds relating to 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 privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR).

Right of complaint to a supervisory authority

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Rights in case of data processing according to the legitimate interest

Pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, you have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (data processing for the purposes of a legitimate interest). This also applies to profiling based on this provision. In the event of your objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Rights in case of direct marketing

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

In the event of your objection to processing for the purpose of direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection can be made form-free and should preferably be addressed to:

Spielfeld Digital Hub GmbH
Skalitzer Str. 85 - 86
10997 Berlin

Phone: 030 - 399 27 38 01
E-mail: info[at]spielfeld.com

Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data.

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). For the conclusion of a contract it is necessary that you provide us with personal data. Without this data, we will usually have to refuse to conclude the contract or will no longer be able to perform an existing contract and may have to terminate it. If there is a legal obligation to provide the data, you are obliged to provide us with personal data. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject may contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be. 

Automated decision-making, performance of profiling

For the establishment and implementation of a contractual relationship, we generally do not use exclusively automated decision-making within the meaning of Article 22 GDPR.

Objection to advertising e-mails

We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Changes to the data protection declaration

This data protection declaration is continuously adapted in the course of the further development of the Internet or our offer. We will announce any changes on this page in good time. In order to be informed about the current status of our data usage regulations, this page should be called up regularly. (Last Edit: 27.10.2022)
