We, as the operator of this website, take the protection of your data seriously (when we speak of website, this also includes its sub-sites). Your data will be treated confidentially and in line with the statutory provisions, in particular the European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) [German Federal Data Protection Act].
When you access this website and use features contained herein, your personal data will be processed in a variety of ways. “Personal data” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. The term “processing” denotes any process carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures, or any series of such processes, in connection with personal data, such as collecting, recording, organising, arranging, storing, adapting or altering, retrieving, requesting, using, disclosing by means of transfer, dissemination or any other form of provision, collating linking, restricting, erasing or destroying (Article 4 (2) GDPR).
Please note that, generally, data transfers over the Internet may be affected by security gaps. It may not be possible to reliably close these gaps to prevent attacks by third parties. This also particularly applies to communication by email. Nevertheless, we shall continuously use security technologies conforming to the respective customary state of the technological art that can be reasonably expected of us. By means of the following Data Privacy Statement, we would like to inform you of what personal data we process for what purpose, and of what rights you and we are entitled to in respect of this processing.
1. Person responsible for data processing

Responsible for content in accordance with § 55 section 2 German State Treaty on Media Services [MDStV]: Sanna Myrttinen (see above for address)
2. Accessing our Website
When you access our website, and during your visit to our website, essentially the following general data will be collected and temporarily stored in our servers’ log files:
- types and versions of the browser used by you;
- the operating system via which you access our website;
- any Internet sites from which our website is accessed (also called “referrer URLs”);
- the IP address (Internet protocol address) via which our sites are accessed;
- the date and time of access;
- the name of your Internet provider via which you access the Internet (access provider);
- Internet sites accessed by you via our website.
This data is processed for technical purposes in our legitimate interest, in particular for the lasting and secure functionality of the connection, for purposes of customer service in order to optimise the user-friendliness of our system and for purposes of verification documentation, for the possible prosecution of criminal offences or pursuit of claims under civil law and for averting attacks on our system. In our view, there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest, worthy of protection, in not having your data processed by us for the purpose specified here, particularly since you voluntarily decide to visit our website.
The legal basis for the aforementioned processing of your data ensues from Article 6 (1), sentence 1, f) GDPR. The anonymous data in the server log files will be stored separately from all personal data provided by you yourself.
3. Mail-to Feature
We provide on our website a “mail to” feature for your use. This enables you to contact us via our website in order to, for example, ask us questions also about circumstances relating to contractual relations existing between us, or to make suggestions. If you make use of this option, we shall store your email address and possibly your name in order to enable communication. When you use this contact feature, you will be free to provide other personal data (such as your name, residential address or telecommunication numbers). If you provide such data, we shall process from this your name, residential address and telecommunication numbers.
Insofar as you add attachments to your emails, these will, along with any personal data contained therein, also be stored. The provision of your personal data in the above context will take place on a voluntary basis and at your instigation for the purpose of communication with us. As the processing by us will be based on our overriding, legitimate interest in customer-orientated communication, this processing is permissible under Article 6 (1), sentence 1, f) GDPR. Depending upon the content of the communication, Article 6 (1), sentence 1, b) GDPR may also come into consideration as a legal basis, for example if the communication serves contractual – or pre-contractual or post-contractual – measures.
The point in time when your data will be erased will depend upon the content of the communication and cannot be specified in advance. However, insofar as no retention or documentation requirements or overriding legitimate interests on our part exist, the data will be erased after the communication has ended.
4. Social Media
On our website, we do not use social media plugins. We only link to the social network Facebook in order to further publicise our offering. The promotional purpose behind this is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. Their respective providers are responsible for ensuring operation in conformity with data protection requirements.
5. Google Maps
Every time the “Google Maps” component is accessed, a cookie is placed by Google, to process user settings and data for the display of the page on which the “Google Maps” component is integrated. This cookie is normally not deleted by closing the browser but rather expires after a specific time, unless you already deleted it manually.
The use of “Google Maps” and the information obtained via
We use components of YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company of the Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, at hhv.de. In this connection, we use the option “extended data protection mode” provided by YouTube. When you access a page with an embedded video, a connection is made to the YouTube servers and at the same time, the content is shown on the web page following an instruction to your browser. According to YouTube, data is only transmitted to the YouTube server in the “extended data protection mode”, in particular which of our web pages you visited, if you watch the video. If you are simultaneously logged in to YouTube, this information is allocated to your member account at YouTube. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account prior to visiting our website. Additional information on YouTubes data privacy was made available by Google here.
