    When contacting us via a contact form, you consent to the data you provide (e.g. your e-mail address, name, telephone number) being stored by us in order to answer your questions. Your data will be deleted after processing your request (Art. 6 para 1 first sentence lit. a) GDPR).

    6. YOUR RIGHTS

Furthermore, you may also request rectification (Art. 16 GDPR) or erasure (Art. 17 GDPR) or restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) and have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG).

    If we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you may withdraw this consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent prior to your withdrawal of consent, but prevents future processing.

In North Rhine-Westphalia, the competent data protection supervisory authority is: Landesbeauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit (State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information), North Rhine-Westphalia Kavalleriestr. 2 – 4, 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany.
