The controller is the natural or legal entity that makes decisions about the means and purposes of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses etc.), either alone or in conjunction with others.
Withdrawal of consent to data processing
Many data processing operations can only be carried out with your explicit consent. You can withdraw any consent that you have given at any time. An informal message to us via email is sufficient for this. The legality of the data processing carried out prior to your withdrawal is not affected by this.
Right to object to data collection in specific cases and against direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If the data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter e or f GDPR, you have the right to file an objection to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds arising from your own specific situation. This also applies to any profiling protected by these conditions. You can find details of the relevant legal basis for processing in this privacy notice. If you file an objection, we will not process your personal data affected by this any longer unless we are able to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the data processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to file an objection to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing at any time. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection according to Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR).
Right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to complain to a supervisory authority, particularly in the member state where their residence, place of work or the location of the alleged breach is situated. The right to complain exists without prejudice to other remedies under administrative law or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have the data automatically processed on the basis of your consent, or in order to fulfil a contract, surrendered to you or a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you demand that the data is directly transferred to another data controller, this is only carried out to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential contents such as bookings or queries which you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection from the fact that the address field on your browser changes from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and a padlock symbol appears on your browser bar.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion and rectification
Within the scope of the applicable legal stipulations, you have the right to information about your saved personal data, its origins and recipients, the purpose of the data processing and, in certain cases, the right to rectification, blocking or deletion of this data free of charge. You can contact us at any time via the address indicated in the legal notice regarding this or any other questions relating to personal data.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted. You can contact us regarding this at any time via the address indicated in the legal notice. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you contest the accuracy of the personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. While this verification is pending, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data has been or is being carried out unlawfully, you can demand that your data is deleted rather than restricted.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to demand that your personal data is restricted rather than deleted.
- If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, your interests must be weighed up against ours. Until it has been established whose interests take precedence, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data must – with the exception of its storage – only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence 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 of a Member State.

Compelling legal conditions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We only collect, process and use personal data insofar as this data is necessary for the establishment, content-related design or modification of a legal relationship (inventory data).

We only collect, process and use personal data on the utilisation of our internet pages (usage data) insofar as this is necessary to enable the user to access our services or for invoicing purposes.
