2. General instructions and mandatory information
The operators of these web pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this privacy statement.
Various personal data is collected if you use this website. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy statement explains which data is collected by us and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.
We wish to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against third party access is not possible.
Note on the controllerThe controller for data processing on this website is:
Johannes Gotzler (Chairperson)
Marktoberdorfer Strasse 24
The controller is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar).
Withdrawal of your consent to data processingMany data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw any consent you have already given at any time. An informal message sent by email to us is sufficient in this respect. The legality of data processing that took place up until the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Article 21 GDPR)If data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1)(e) or (1)(f) GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons that arise from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. Please refer to this privacy statement for the respective legal basis for processing. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or where processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (objection pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR). If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authorityIn the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, particularly in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portabilityYou have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or a third party in a common, machine-readable format. Should you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryptionThis website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the website operator. An encrypted connection is recognisable by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. Data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties if SSL or TLS encryption is activated.
Information, blocking, erasure and rectificationWithin the framework of applicable legal provisions, you have the right at all times to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address indicated in the legal notice if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to restriction of processingYou have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact the address indicated in the legal notice at any time to do this. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually require time to verify the accuracy of this. You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data for the duration of this verification.
- If your personal data has been/is being processed unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to demand that processing of your personal data be restricted instead of being erased.
- If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR, your interests and ours must be balanced. You have the right to demand that processing of your personal data be restricted for as long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail.
Objection to promotional emailsWe hereby object to the use of contact data published as part of the legal notice obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising being sent, such as spam emails.

CookiesSome of the web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can configure your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies, only permit cookies in individual cases, prohibit the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. The functionality of this website may be restricted if cookies are deactivated.
Cookies that are required for the purposes of electronic communication or to provide certain functions which you wish to use (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies in order to provide its services in an optimum way that is free of errors. Insofar as other cookies are stored (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour), these are explained separately in this privacy statement.
Server log filesThe provider of the web pages automatically collects and stores information which your browser automatically transmits to us in so-called server log files. This includes the following information:
- The browser type and browser version
- The operating system used
- The referrer URL
- The host name of the accessing computer
- The time of the server inquiry
- The IP address
This data is collected on the basis of Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website. The server log files must be recorded for this purpose.
Inquiry by email, telephone or faxIf you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your inquiry and all personal data derived from it (name, inquiry) are stored and processed by us for the purpose of handling your concern. We do not forward this data to other parties without your consent.
This data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1)(b) GDPR if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for implementing pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to us.
The data you have sent to us through contact inquiries will be retained by us until you request erasure, withdraw your consent to storage or when the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions, particularly statutory retention periods, remain unaffected.
Newsletter dataIf you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an email address from you and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected, or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the information requested and do not pass it on to third parties. Data entered on the newsletter registration is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent to the storage of data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time (e.g. using the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter). The legality of data processing operations that have already occurred remains unaffected by the withdrawal. The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be retained by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after successful unsubscription. Data stored by us for other purposes remain unaffected by this.

If you do not wish for Clever Elements to analyse your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message for this purpose. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.
Data analysis by Clever ElementsUsing Clever Elements enables us to analyse our newsletter campaigns. Among other things, it enables us to see whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links (if any) have been clicked. This enables us to determine, among other things, which links were clicked particularly often.
Clever Elements also allows us to subdivide newsletter recipients into different recipient categories (e.g. place of residence). As a result, the newsletters can be adapted more effectively to suit the respective target groups.
For detailed information concerning the functions of Clever Elements, please refer to the following link: https://cleverelements.com/product.

Data stored by us for other purposes remain unaffected by this.
