General Notice and Mandatory Information

Name and Address of the Controller

The controller for the data processing on this website is:

Marcus Held
Johann-Schäfer-Weg 14
50354 Hürth

The controller alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g., names, contact details, etc.).

Revocation of Your Consent to Data Processing

Some data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal notification by email is sufficient for revoking your consent. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to Lodge a Complaint with the Competent Supervisory Authority

If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the state in which our company is headquartered. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Right to Data Portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.

Right to Information, Correction, Blocking, Deletion

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin, recipients, and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of these data. For this purpose and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time using the contact options provided in the legal notice.

SSL or TLS Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" address line of your browser and the lock symbol in the browser line.


Data submitted via forms, including your contact information, will be stored in order to process your inquiry or to be available for follow-up questions. The GDPR-compliant provider form.taxi is used to process the data. The provider's privacy policy also applies.

< p>The processing of data entered into the form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal notification by email is sufficient for revoking your consent. The legality of the data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data transmitted via the forms will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage, or there is no longer a need for data storage. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.


Type and Scope of Data Processing

We use the open-source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website. The software sets a cookie in your browser (see cookies above). When individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:

  • Two bytes of the IP address of the user's accessing system (anonymized IP address)

  • The accessed website

  • The website from which the user accessed the accessed website (referrer)

  • The subpages accessed from the accessed website

  • The duration of the visit to the website

  • The frequency of accessing the website

The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. Your personal data is stored only there. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

Purpose and Legal Basis

We process your data using the analysis software Matomo for the purpose of evaluating the use of individual components and contents of our website based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) TTDSG. You give your consent by adjusting the use of cookies (cookie banner/consent manager), through which you can also revoke your consent with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7(3) GDPR. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data. If you do not give us your consent, you can still visit our website without any restrictions, but not all functions may be fully available.

Storage Period

The specific storage period of the set cookies is 13 months.

Google Web Fonts

Type and Scope of Data Processing

We use Google Fonts from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, as a service for providing fonts for our online offering. To obtain these fonts, you establish a connection to servers of Google Ireland Limited, whereby your IP address is transmitted.

Purpose and Legal Basis

The use of Google Fonts is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) TTDSG.

We intend to transfer personal data to third countries outside the European Economic Area, particularly the United States. In cases where there is no adequacy decision by the European Commission (e.g., in the United States), we have agreed on other appropriate safeguards with the data recipients within the meaning of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. These are, unless otherwise stated, the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission in accordance with Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021. You can view a copy of these standard contractual clauses at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/HTML/?uri=CELEX:32021D0914.

In addition, we obtain your consent in accordance with Art. 49(1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR before such a transfer to a third country. You give this consent via the consent in the consent manager (or other forms, registrations, etc.). We would like to point out that in the case of transfers to third countries, there may be unknown risks in detail (e.g., data processing by security authorities of the third country, the exact scope and consequences of which we do not know, over which we have no influence, and of which you may not become aware).

Storage Period

The specific storage period of the processed data is not influenced by us but determined by Google Ireland Limited. Further information can be found in the privacy policy for Google Fonts: https://policies.google.com/privacy.


If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require an email address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the provided email address and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered into the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.

We use the GDPR-compliant service Buttondown.email to operate the newsletter. In addition to this privacy policy, the privacy policy of buttondown.email applies.

We record when a newsletter we send is opened.

The data you stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers or the newsletter service provider after you unsubscribe from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased to apply. We reserve the right to delete or block email addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion within the framework of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

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

After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your email address may be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist is only used for this purpose and is not merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
