3. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.

Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected.

We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail communications) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

Kaiser-Wilehlm-Str. 26
82319 Starnberg

Phone: 08151 9731 881

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Storage duration

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the latter case, the deletion will take place after these reasons cease to apply.

Information on data transfer to the USA

Our website uses, in particular, tools from companies based in the USA. When these tools are active, your personal information may be transferred to the US servers of these companies. We must point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are required to release personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. The possibility cannot therefore be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes.  We have no influence over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)



Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

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

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If you are under an obligation to share your payment information (e.g. account number if you give us the authority to debit your bank account) with us after you have entered into a fee-based contract with us, this information is required to process payments.

Payment transactions using common modes of paying (Visa/MasterCard, debit to your bank account) are processed exclusively via encrypted SSL or TLS connections. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the communication with us is encrypted, third parties will not be able to read the payment information you share with us.

Information about, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

5. Analysis tools and advertising

Matomo (formerly called Piwik)

This website uses the open source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses technologies that make it possible to recognize the user across multiple pages with the aim of analyzing the user patterns (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information recorded by Matomo about the use of this website will be stored on our server. Prior to archiving, the IP address will first be anonymized.

Through Matomo, we are able to collect and analyze data on the use of our website by website visitors. This enables us to find out, for instance, when which page views occurred and from which region they came. In addition, we collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser, and operating system used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.).

The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR.

We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.

6. Plug-ins and Tools

YouTube with expanded data protection integration

Our website embeds videos of the website YouTube. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device or comparable technologies for recognition (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way YouTube will be able to obtain information about this website’s visitors. Among other things, this information will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts to commit fraud.

Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.

The use of YouTube is based on our interest in presenting our online content in an appealing manner. Pursuant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legitimate interest. If a corresponding agreement has been requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agreement can be revoked at any time.

For more information on how YouTube handles user data, please consult the YouTube Data Privacy Policy under:

Google Maps

This website uses the mapping service Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

To enable the use of the Google Maps features, your IP address must be stored. As a rule, this information is transferred to one of Google’s servers in the United States, where it is archived. The operator of this website has no control over the data transfer.

We use Google Maps to present our online content in an appealing manner and to make the locations disclosed on our website easy to find. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a respective declaration of consent has been obtained, the data shall be processed exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. This declaration of consent may be revoked at any time.

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to determine whether data entered on this website (e.g., information entered into a contact form) is being provided by a human user or by an automated program. To determine this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitors based on a variety of parameters. This analysis is triggered automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the site. For this analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates a variety of data (e.g., IP address, time the website visitor spent on the site or cursor movements initiated by the user). The data tracked during such analyses are forwarded to Google.

reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not alerted that an analysis is underway.

Data are stored and analyzed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the protection of the operator’s websites against abusive automated spying and against SPAM.

General Terms

I. General Terms and Conditions for Advertisements and Third-Party Inserts in Newspapers and Magazine Publications

These terms and conditions are applicable for use in the advertising and insertions business of the publisher in conjunction with the rate card. Additional conditions of the advertiser which deviate from the terms of the publisher are therefore not legally binding.

1. “Advertising order“ in the intendment of the following general terms and conditions shall be the contract on publishing one of several advertisements of an advertising party or other advertisers in a publication for the purpose of distribution. Advertising orders from agencies shall be accepted in their name and on their account.

2. In case of doubt, advertisements shall be called within one year after concluding a contract.

3. If the right to call individual advertisements has been conceded in the framework of concluding a contract, the order shall be handled within one year since the publication of the first advertisement to the extent that the first advertisement was called and published within the period of time specified in sentence 1. When contracts are concluded, the client shall be entitled to call other advertisements within the period of time agreed upon or specified in sentence 2 even beyond the number of advertisements specified in the order.

4. If an order is not fulfilled under certain circumstances that the publishing house is not responsible for, the client, notwithstanding any other legal obligations, shall reimburse the publishing house for the difference between the reduction granted and the reduction corresponding to the actual procurement. Reimbursement shall not apply if non- compliance is based upon force majeure in the publishing house’s area of risk.

5. The publishing house shall make advertisements that cannot be recognised as such because of their editorial layout clearly recognisable as advertisements with the word “advertisement”.

6. The publishing house reserves the right to accept or reject advertisements or inserts or single orders at its own discretion at any time during the process of concluding a scheduled contract. The publishing house also has the final decision on accepting or rejecting orders that were accepted by its representatives or anyone assisting the company or its representatives. Clients will be immediately informed about a potential cancellation.

7. Orders for inserts shall only be binding for the publishing house after a sample of the insert has been submitted and approved. Clients will be immediately informed if an order is rejected. Inserts that advertise two or more companies will be invoiced as two or more inserts. The publishing house is not responsible for checking the number of inserts submitted. Outsourced inserts must be received by the publishing house within sufficient time before the advertising closure deadline to enable the client to be informed if the order cannot be fulfilled in the manner stated above.

8. The client shall be responsible for delivering the text of the advertisement in due time and the printing documents or inserts being in proper order. The publishing house will request a replacement for printing documents that are recognisably unsuited or damaged. The publishing house shall guarantee the printing quality normal for the attached titles in the framework of the possibilities given by the printing documents.

9. The client shall have a claim to reduction of payment or a flawless substitute advertisement if the print is wholly or partially illegible, incorrect or if the print of the advertisement is incomplete, however only to the extent that the purpose of the advertisement was impaired. If the publishing house allows an appropriate period of time set him for this to expire or if the substitute advertisement is not flawless again, the client shall have the right to reduction of payment or cancelling the order. Claims to compensation for damage from positive breach of an obligation, fault when the contract was concluded and wrongful acts, even if the order was issued by telephone, shall be excluded. Claims to compensation for damage because of the impossibility of performance and delay shall be limited to the remuneration to be paid for the advertisement or supplement concerned. The publishing house shall only be liable in commercially organised business transactions with gross negligence limited to the amount of the remuneration for the advertisement concerned. Complaints have to be as- serted within four weeks after receiving the invoice and document.

10. Proofs shall only be supplied upon express request. The client shall bear the responsibility for the correctness of the proofs sent back. The publishing house shall include all corrections of errors that it is notified of within the period of time set when sending the proof.

11. If no special size specifications have been given, the calculation shall be based upon the actual printing height usual for the type of advertisement.

12. If the client has not made an advance payment, the invoice will be sent immediately, but not later than 14 days after the publication of the advertisement. The invoice must be paid in net cash according to the conditions in the mediapack. The time limit begins on receipt of the invoice, unless a different payment date or advance payment has been agreed in advance.

13. If a special price has been agreed upon, the client forfeits any further listed discounts, such as frequency discounts and agency commission.
14. If there is a delay or a respite in payment, interest shall be charged in accordance with our price list and collection costs. The publishing house may set back the further implementation of the current order until payment is made and it may demand advance payment for the remaining advertisements. If there is a justified reason to doubt the client’s ability to pay, the publishing house shall be entitled to make publishing further advertisements dependant upon advance payment of the amount and settling outstanding amounts invoiced even during the term of an advertisement contract without taking the originally agreed-upon date of due payment into consideration.

15. The publishing house shall supply a proof of advertisement. If it is no longer possible to procure a proof, it shall be replaced by a legally binding certificate of the publishing house on publishing and distributing the advertisement. The publishing house will deliver with the invoice an example of the advertisement, if desired. Depending on the type and measurements, advertisement samples, insert pages or  the full number of inserts will be delivered. If an example is not possible, then the legally binding certificate of the publishing house on publishing and distributing the advertisement takes effect.

16. Printing documents shall only be sent back to the client upon special request. The duty to store shall end three months after the order has expired.

17. The place of fufilment is the publishing house’s principal place of business. In cases involving legal proceedings concerning business transactions with merchants, legal entities of public law or with special funds regulated by public law, the place of jurisdiction  is the headquarters of the publishing house. If the address or usual place of residence of the client, including non commercial persons, is not known at the time of commencement of legal proceedings, or if the client has changed his or her address or usual place of residence beyond the jurisdiction of statutory law, then the local jurisdiction of the place of the publishing house takes effect.

18. Advertising agents and advertising agencies are required to abide by the prices set by the publishing house when making offers, contracts and invoices with advertising clients. 

19. The client bears single responsibility for the contents and the legal permissibility   for the insertion of the text and art materials that are made available. The client is deemed to discharge the publishing house of any claims by third parties that might arise through the infringement of laws or regulations. The publishing house is not  required to verify whether the legal rights of third parties have been infringed by its accepting these materials. In addition, the publishing house is discharged from the costs of any resulting legal defense costs.

20. Terminations of advertisement orders are not possible.

21. The placement of the advertisement is carried out by the publisher and placement requests included in the advertisement order are considered recommendations; the publisher will endeavour to fulfill these requests in the context of the technical and design alternatives. Excluded from these rules are advertisements within specified categories or those which have had a specific placement surcharge.

22. In the case of stoppages or in cases of force majeure, industrial dispute, illegal confiscation, traffic disturbances, general raw material or energy shortage and the like - in both the publishers‘ plant and external plants used by the publishers to fulfill their obligations - the publishers are entitled to demand full payment for the published ads, provided that 80% of the average circulation of the publication sold in the last four quarters has been delivered by the publishers. In the case of lower output by the publishers the invoice amount is to be reduced in direct proportion to the extent to which the guaranteed sold circulation has been reduced.

23. In accordance with §§ 26 and 34 of the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz of 1. 1. 1978 we herewith give notice that we shall be employing electronic data processing for administration and invoicing of the contract. For this purpose we or a third party shall be storing personally applicable data insofar as it is of significance for the performance of the contract.
