Your rights as the data subject

You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact data specified for our data protection officer:

  • Obtain information about your data that are stored by us and their processing,
  • Rectification of incorrect personal data,
  • Erasure of your data that are stored by us,
  • Restriction of data processing insofar as we are not yet permitted to delete your data due to statutory obligations,
  • Objection to the processing of your data by us and data portability insofar as you have consented to data processing or have concluded a contract with us.

If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

You can lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for you at any time. Your responsible supervisory authority depends on the Federal State in which you reside, in which you work or in which the suspected infringement occurred. A list of supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with addresses can be found at:

Collection of general information when visiting our website

When you access our website, information of a general nature is collected automatically by means of server log files. This information includes, for instance, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This exclusively involves information that does not enable any conclusions to be drawn as regards your person (such as your name, address or e-mail address, for instance).

We additionally offer a voluntary evaluation function for wines. If you use this function, we also collect and store your IP address to ensure proper functioning. This also exclusively involves information that does not enable any conclusions to be drawn as regards your person (such as your name, address or e-mail address, for instance).

This information is technically necessary to enable us to correctly deliver the website content you have requested and is a mandatory requirement when using the Internet. In particular, this information is processed for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring that a link to the website is established without problems,
  • Ensuring the unobstructed use of our website,
  • Evaluating system security and stability as well as for other administrative purposes.

Your personal data are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest arising from the above mentioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions regarding your person. The sole recipients of the data are the data controller and possibly processors.

If necessary, we statistically evaluate anonymous information of this type to optimise our website and the underlying technology.

Purpose of data processing by the data controller and third parties

We only process your personal data for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. Your personal data are not transferred to third parties for purposes other than those stated. We only forward your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given us your express consent to do so,
  • it is necessary to process them to execute a contract with you,
  • it is necessary to process them to fulfil a legal obligation,
  • it is necessary to process them to safeguard legitimate interests and there are no grounds for assuming that you have an overriding legitimate interest to the non-communication of your data.

Erasure or blocking of data

We comply with the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or for the various storage periods specified by the legislator. After the respective purpose ceases to apply or after these storage periods expire, the corresponding data are blocked or erased routinely and in accordance with the statutory regulations.


Like many other websites, we also use what are called 'cookies'. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive by a website server. This automatically provides us with certain data such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or transfer viruses onto a computer. The information contained in cookies enables us to make navigation easier for you and to correctly display our websites.

The data collected by means of cookies are never forwarded to third parties or linked to your personal data without your consent.

You can, of course, essentially visit our website without cookies. Internet browsers are routinely set so that they accept cookies. You can generally deactivate the use of cookies at any time in your browser settings. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how you can change these settings. Please note that some of our website's individual functions may not be available if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

SSL encryption

To ensure that your data are secure during transfer, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a website with the YouTube plug-in, a link to YouTube servers is established. In this process, YouTube is informed about which websites you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can connect your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out from your YouTube account beforehand.

If a YouTube video is launched, the provider uses cookies that collect information about your user behaviour.

If the storage of cookies has been deactivated for the Google Ads program, no such cookies have to be anticipated when watching YouTube videos either. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data protection at YouTube can be found in the provider's privacy policy at:

Amendment of our data protection regulations

We reserve the right to adapt this privacy policy so that it always complies with the latest legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. on introduction of new services. The new privacy policy then applies to your subsequent visit.

Questions to the data protection officer
