Right to correction Under the conditions of Art. 16 DSGVO, you have the right to demand the immediate correction of incorrect personal data concerning you.

9. Forwarding of your personal data
Your personal data will be passed on as described below.

The website is hosted by an external service provider in Germany. We ensure that data processing takes place in Germany alone. This is necessary for the operation of the website, as well as for the establishment, implementation and processing of the existing user contract and is also possible without your consent.

In addition, data is passed on if we are entitled or obliged to pass on data on the basis of legal regulations and/or official or court orders. In particular, this may involve providing information for law enforcement, security purposes or the enforcement of intellectual property rights. Insofar as your data is passed on to service providers to the required extent, they only have access to your personal data to the extent necessary to fulfil their tasks. These service providers are obliged to treat your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular the DSGVO.

Beyond the aforementioned circumstances, we will not pass on your data to third parties without your consent. In particular, we do not pass on any personal data to a body in a third country or an international organization.

10. Storage period for personal data
With regard to the storage period, we delete personal data as soon as it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the original purpose and there are no longer any legal retention periods. The legal retention periods are ultimately the criterion for the final duration of the storage of personal data. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If there are retention periods, processing is restricted by blocking the data.
11. References and links
When you access Internet pages referred to on our website, you may be asked again for information such as your name, address, e-mail address, browser properties, etc. This data protection declaration does not regulate the collection, transfer or handling of personal data by third parties.

Third party service providers can have different and own regulations in handling the collection, processing and use of personal data. It is therefore recommended to inform yourself on the websites of third parties about their practice for handling personal data before entering personal data.

12. Changes to the data protection declaration
We are constantly developing our website to provide you with an increasingly better service. We will always keep this data protection declaration up to date and adapt it accordingly if and insofar as this should become necessary.

We will of course inform you in good time of any changes to this data protection declaration. We will do this, for example, by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address you have given us. Should further consent be required from you to our handling of your data, we will of course obtain this from you before such changes take effect.

You can access the current version of our data protection regulations at any time on the Internet under Data Protection.
