Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data

Right to object to data collection in particular cases as well as to direct marketing (article 21 GDPR)
When data processing is based on Article 6 para. 1 (e) or (f) GDPR, you are entitled to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The appropriate legal basis upon which the processing is based is referred to in this personal data protection information.

If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient, and the purpose for which it has been processed.

Right to limitation of processing
You have the right to demand the limitation of the processing of your data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice (Impressum). The right to restriction of the processing exists in the following cases:

If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the check, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your data.
If the processing of your data has taken place unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.

If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense, or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your and our interests. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests predominate, you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may not be processed – apart from its storage – without your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising, or defending legal rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your device after a video has been started. YouTube can use these cookies to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other purposes, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness, and prevent attempted fraud. The cookies continue to be stored on your device until you delete them.

It may be the case that additional data processing operations? which we have no influence over ? are triggered once a YouTube video has been started.

We use YouTube in the interest of displaying our online services in an appealing way. This constitutes a legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (f) GDPR.
