3. Cookies

To make visiting the website attractive and enable the use of certain functions, I use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files stored on your device.

6.2 Use of Payment Service Providers (Payment Services)

  • PayPal

If payment is made via PayPal, credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal, or – if offered – "purchase on account" or "installment payment" via PayPal, I will pass on your payment data to PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter "PayPal"), as part of the payment processing.

For this purpose, your payment data may be passed on to credit agencies in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR based on PayPal's legitimate interest in determining your solvency. The result of the credit check in relation to the statistical probability of non-payment is used by PayPal to decide on the provision of the respective payment method. The credit report can contain probability values (so-called score values). Insofar as score values are included in the result of the credit report, they have their basis in a scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical procedure. Among other things, address data is included in the calculation of the score values. Further data protection information, including the credit agencies used, can be found in PayPal's privacy policy:

You can object to this processing of your data at any time by sending a message to PayPal. However, PayPal may still be entitled to process your personal data if this is necessary for the contractual payment processing.

7.1 The applicable data protection law grants you comprehensive data subject rights (rights of access and intervention) vis-à-vis the controller regarding the processing of your personal data, which I inform you about below:

**- Right of Access according to Art. 15 GDPR:** You have the right to obtain information about your personal data processed by me, the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period or the criteria for determining the storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection to processing, complaint to a supervisory authority, the origin of your data if it was not collected from you by me, the existence of automated decision-making including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information about the logic involved and the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for you, as well as your right to be informed of what safeguards exist according to Art. 46 GDPR when your data is transferred to third countries;

**- Right to Erasure according to Art. 17 GDPR:** You have the right to request the erasure of your personal data if the conditions set out in Art. 17(1) GDPR are met. This right, however, does not exist particularly if the processing is necessary for exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims;

**- Right to Restriction of Processing according to Art. 18 GDPR:** You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data as long as the accuracy of your data contested by you is being verified, if you refuse the erasure of your data due to unlawful data processing and instead request the restriction of the processing of your data, if you need your data to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims after I no longer need this data once the purpose has been achieved, or if you have objected to processing for reasons relating to your particular situation as long as it is not yet clear whether my legitimate reasons prevail;

**- Right to Notification according to Art. 19 GDPR:** If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure, or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to communicate this rectification or erasure of data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

**- Right to Lodge a Complaint according to Art. 77 GDPR:** You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace, or the place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

**7.2 Right to Object**

If we process your personal data based on our overriding legitimate interest in the context of a balance of interests, you have the right to object to this processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation, with effect for the future. If you exercise your right to object, we will stop processing the data concerned. However, further processing is reserved if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms, or if the processing serves to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.

Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" on this website. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal reference.
