With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right

To obtain consent for the use of technically unnecessary cookies on the website, the provider uses a cookie manager.
When the website is called up, a cookie with the settings information is stored on the end device of the user so that the request for consent does not have to be made on a subsequent visit.
The cookie is required to obtain legally compliant user consent.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your internet browser.

We use YouTube on our website. This is a video portal operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, hereinafter referred to as „YouTube“.
We use YouTube in its advanced privacy mode to show you videos. In case you have granted your consent to this processing the legal basis is Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The legal basis can also be Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the advanced privacy mode means that the data specified below will only be transmitted to the YouTube server if you actually start a video.

To establish contact, the provider enables the customer, among other things, to make contact via the messenger service WhatsApp. WhatsApp is a service of WhatsApp Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as WhatsApp, a subsidiary of Facebook.
When the user communicates with the provider via WhatsApp, both the provider and WhatsApp receive the mobile phone number of the user and the information that the user has contacted the provider.
In the opinion of the data protection supervisory authorities, however, the USA does not currently have an adequate level of data protection. However, there are so-called standard contractual clauses:
These are private law agreements, however, and therefore have no direct impact on the access options of the authorities in the USA.
More information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing of these data by WhatsApp and Facebook as well as related rights and setting options for protecting privacy are contained in privacy guidelines from WhatsApp:
The legal basis for this processing and the transmission to WhatsApp is Article 6 para. 1 clause 1 b. GDPR, insofar as the establishment of contact relates to an existing contractual relationship or serves to initiate such a contractual relationship. If contact is not made for the above purposes, the legal basis is Article 6 para.1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest of the provider is to improve the quality of service.
