All other information can be given voluntarily by the requesting person. By sending the message via the complaint form, you consent to the processing of the transmitted personal data.

This is done on the basis of the voluntarily given consent in accordance with Art.6 para.1 lit.a GDPR. The personal data collected for the use of the complaint processing will be automatically deleted as soon as the request is completed and there are no reasons for further storage (e.g. due to legal storage obligations).

3. Cookies

So-called cookies are used on this website. These are data packets that are exchanged between the website server and the visitor’s browser. These are stored by the respective devices used (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when visiting the website. In this respect, cookies cannot cause any damage to the devices used. In particular, they do not contain viruses or other malware. In the cookies, information is stored that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used.

Cookies are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on the visitor’s terminal device. Session cookies are automatically deleted after the end of the visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on the end device until the visitor deletes them himself or until they are automatically deleted by the web browser. The operator can thus in no way gain direct knowledge of the identity of the visitor to the website.

Cookies are mostly accepted according to the basic settings of the browsers used. However, the browser settings can also be configured in such a way that cookies are either not accepted on the devices used or that a special notice is given in each case before a new cookie is created. It should be noted, however, that the deactivation of cookies can lead to the fact that not all functions of the website can be used in the best possible way.

Technical necessary cookies:

The use of these cookies serves to make the use of the operator’s web offer comfortable and secure. For example, session cookies can be used to track which settings the visitor has made via the cookie consent tool, or which language settings have been made. After leaving the website, these session cookies are automatically deleted.

The data processed by these cookies are justified for the above purposes to protect the legitimate interests of the operator according to Art.6 Abs.1 lit.f GDPR.

Cookies requiring consent and data forwarding to third-party providers:

All cookies that are not technically necessary to ensure the operation of the website are based on Art.6 para.1 lit.a GDPR and are therefore subject to consent. The processing is based on Art.7 GDPR and the consent is documented by your selection in the cookie settings. In this context, we would like to point out that you can revoke any consent you have given at any time (see chapter 6 of this privacy policy). This is done via the “Cookie Policy” button in the footer of our website. There you can also give consent to processing at a later date if you wish to use offered functionalities of our site.

Instagram content

On this website, functions of the service Instagram are integrated. These functions are

offered by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. This involves the hosting of images and texts that we embed on our website. When our website is called up, this content is retrieved from Instagram. The transmission of personal information of the visitor of our website to Facebook is thus not excluded. If you are logged into your Instagram account, Facebook can link the content of this website to your Instagram profile. This allows Instagram to associate your visit to this website with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram. The storage and analysis of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the widest possible visibility in social media. If a corresponding consent was requested, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Insofar as personal data is collected on our website with the help of the technology described here and forwarded to Facebook or Instagram, we and Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland are jointly responsible for this data processing (Art.26 GDPR). The joint responsibility is limited exclusively to the collection of the data and its forwarding to Facebook or Instagram. The processing by Facebook or Instagram that takes place after the forwarding is not part of the joint responsibility. The obligations incumbent on us jointly have been set out in a joint processing agreement. You can find the text of the agreement at: https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum.

According to this agreement, we are responsible for providing the privacy information when using the Facebook or Instagram tool and for the privacy-secure implementation of the tool on our website. Facebook is responsible for the data security of the Facebook or Instagram products. You can assert data subject rights (e.g., requests for information) regarding the data processed by Facebook or Instagram directly with Facebook. If you assert the data subject rights with us, we are obliged to forward them to Facebook.

The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

4. Links to other web pages

This website contains links to websites of external operators. These were carefully checked before they were activated. However, it cannot be ruled out that the respective operators may subsequently make changes to the content. This data protection declaration applies only to the Internet presence of our institution. We do not accept any liability for the content or accuracy of the data protection statements of other providers’ websites. For information on the data protection information of other providers, please check the respective website or contact the respective provider.

Social Plugins (data protection compliant)

The content on our pages can be shared on social networks such as Facebook and Instagram in a privacy-compliant manner. This site uses a data-saving service for this by establishing direct contact between the networks and the users only when the user actively clicks on one of these buttons. An automatic transfer of user data to the operators of these platforms does not take place. Visitors to our website can thus jump to our presences in social networks in a privacy-compliant manner without complete surfing profiles being created by the operators of the networks.

5. Passing on of data

Personal data is transferred to third parties when,

  • the data subject has expressly consented to this according to Art.6 para.1 lit.a GDPR,
  • the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims pursuant to Art.6 para.1 lit.f GDPR and there is no reason to assume that the data subject has an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of his or her data.,
  • there is a legal obligation for the data transfer according to Art.6 para.1 lit.c GDPR, and/or
  • this is necessary for the fulfillment of a contractual relationship with the data subject pursuant to Art.6 para.1 lit.b GDPR.,
  • and within the scope of commissioned processing pursuant to Art.28 of the GDPR and within the scope of joint responsibility pursuant to Art.26 of the GDPR to service providers in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR.

In other cases, personal data collected when visiting the website will not be disclosed to third parties. 

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries:
Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on U.S. servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

6. Your data protection rights

We have defined processes within our facility so that you can exercise your rights with us. You have a right to,

  • revoke consent at any time with effect for the future (Art.7 para. 3 GDPR).
  • to receive information (Art.15 GDPR) about your data stored by us.
  • that inaccurate data about you will be corrected by us (Art.16 GDPR).
  • that data about you that is no longer required will be deleted from us (Art.17 GDPR).
  • that under certain conditions the processing of your data is restricted (Art.18 GDPR). This may be the case, for example, if deletion is not possible, but the data may not be further processed.
  • that your data is transferable (Art. 20 GDPR). This right applies in particular if you have given your consent to the processing of your data or if the processing of the data is necessary to fulfill a contract. The right to data portability does not exist insofar as your data is not processed with automated procedures.
  • to object to the further processing of your personal data in a special situation (Art. 21 GDPR), insofar as the processing is based on the legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) as well as in the case of profiling based thereon. You may also object at any time if the data is used for direct marketing purposes (Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
  • to complain to a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR) if you are of the opinion that the processing of your data violates the legal requirements. The supervisory authority responsible for us is:

Der Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und             
die Informationsfreiheit Baden-Württemberg (LfDI-BW)
Lautenschlagerstraße 20
70173 Stuttgart

If you wish to exercise any of the rights, please contact the data controller or the data protection officer. You can find the contact details under point 1 of this privacy policy.

7. Scope of your obligations to provide us with your data

You only need to provide the data that is necessary for visiting our website and for the purpose of your request.

8. Status and update of this privacy policy
