General notes and information on obligations

Nomination of the data controller
The responsible body for the data processing (data controller) on this website is:

Ernst Apel GmbH
Am Kirschberg 3
D-97218 Gerbrunn  
Germany 

The controller, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. name, contact data, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the data processing
Some data processing operations are possible only with your explicit consent. You may revoke at any time any consent already provided. To revoke consent, informal notification to us by email is sufficient. The legality or the data processing carried out before revocation is unaffected.

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In case of violations of data privacy, you, as the data subject, have the right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in privacy issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company has its headquarters. A list of data protection officers as well as their contact data can be taken from the following link: 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 on the basis of your consent or automatically for the fulfilment of a contract transferred to you or a third party. This is to be provided in a machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to a different data controller, this can only take place in as far as it is technically feasible.

Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right at any time to free-of-charge information about your saved personal data, its origin and recipients and the purposes of the data processing as well as, where appropriate, the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. In this regard on regarding other questions on the theme of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the addresses listed in the Legal Notice.

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer

This data will not be merged with other data sources. The data processing is based on Art. 6 paragraph 1(b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
