Revocation of your consent to data processing
Some data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to yourself or to third parties. It is provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.
Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion
You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, its recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions.

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 that 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.

For integration and display of video content our website uses plugins from Vimeo. The video portal is provided by Vimeo Inc. 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

The payment provider logs into your online banking account, automatically checks your account balance and makes the transfer. An immediate transaction confirmation follows. Your turnover, the credit limit of your overdraft facility and the existence of other accounts and their balances are also automatically checked after logging in.
In addition to PIN and TAN, the transmission to Sofort GmbH also includes payment data and personal data. Your personal data includes your first and last name, address, telephone number(s), email address, IP address and any other data necessary for payment processing. There is a need for this data transmission in order to establish your identity beyond any doubt and to prevent attempts at fraud.
Your data will be transmitted to Sofort GmbH on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (consent) and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (processing to fulfil a contract). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. Data processing operations in the past remain effective in the event of a revocation.
