If you visit our website again on another device or browser, or if you have deleted your cookies, you will be required to accept the cookie again.

- Right of deletion pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO: You have the right to request the deletion of your personal data if the requirements of art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO are met.

- Right to restrict processing pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO: You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data as long as the accuracy of your data contested is verified, if you refuse to delete your data due to inadmissible data processing and instead request the restriction of the processing of your data, if you need your data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, after we no longer need this data after the purpose has been achieved, or if you have filed an objection for reasons of your particular situation, as long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons prevail;

- Right to information in accordance with art. 19 DSGVO: If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete or limit the processing, he/she shall be obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
