III. General information about data processing

1. Extent of the processing of personal data

In principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only where this data is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The regular collection and use of personal data of our users takes place only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Where we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions. Where processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as legal basis. If the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, where such interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, then Article 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data deletion and storage

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the storage no longer serves any purpose. In addition, such storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data is also blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the standards referred to expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract. 

IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • IP address
  • browser
  • operating system
  • referrer URL

 

2. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to provide the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must be stored for the storage duration. Storage in log files is carried out to ensure website functionality. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. No evaluation of the data for marketing purposes takes place in this regard. 

Our legitimate interest in the processing of data pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR exists in connection with these purposes. 

3. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. Where the data was collected to provide the website, it will be deleted once the respective session has ended.

Where the data is stored in log files, it will be deleted after seven days at the latest. Data may be stored for a longer period. In that case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or altered, so that a reference can no longer be made to the calling client. 

4. Opposition and removal option

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files are essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, the user has no opposition possibility. 

V. Use of cookies

1. Description and scope of data processing

The cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically erased at the end of your visit.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to facilitate the use of websites by users. Certain features of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these features the browser must be recognised even after changing website. 

4. Duration of storage, opposition and removal options

Cookies are stored on users' computers and transmitted to our site by these computers. Therefore, users have full control over the use of cookies. The transmission of cookies can be deactivated or restricted by changing the settings in the user’s Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. Deletion can also be done automatically. If cookies are disabled for our website, this may result in the inability to use all features of our website.

VI. Contact form and e-mail contact

1. Description and scope of data processing 

Our website contains a contact form that can be used for electronic contact. If a user exercises this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and saved. This data is:

  • name
  • business
  • country
  • postal code
  • city
  • street
  • house number
  • phone number
  • email address

 

For the processing of the data, your consent will be obtained during the registration process and reference made to this privacy statement. 

Alternatively, contact may be made via the e-mail address provided. In that case, the user's personal data transmitted by email will be stored. 

In this context, no data is disclosed to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

2. Legal basis for data processing 

The legal basis for the processing of the data, where the user has granted his/her consent, is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of the data transmitted in connection with the sending of an e-mail is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. If the e-mail contact is made with a view to concluding a contract, then Article 6(1)(b) GDPR constitutes an additional legal basis for the processing.

3. Purpose of data processing

The personal data from the input mask is processed solely to allow us to process the contact. In the case of contact via email, there must be a legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case for the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and the data sent by e-mail, when the conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been conclusively clarified. 

Any additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

5. Opposition and removal option

Users may revoke their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If users contact us by e-mail, they may object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot continue. All personal data stored during contact will be deleted in that case.

VII. Your rights

You have the following rights with respect to your personal data.

  1. Right to information
  2. Right to rectification or cancellation
  3. Right to restriction of processing
  4. Right to object to processing
  5. Right to data portability

You also have the right to submit a complaint about our processing of your personal data to a data protection supervisory authority. 

You also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of any consent-based processing that took place prior to the withdrawal. 

Use of Google Analytics:

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information collected via the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google prior to transmission within the Member States of the European Union or in other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and Internet usage to the website operator.

The IP address delivered by Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. In addition, you can prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()". As a result, IP addresses are truncated before further processing and cannot therefore be matched to a specific person. Where the data collected about you contains references to persons, these references will be immediately excluded and the personal data deleted immediately.

We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. Using the statistics obtained we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. In the exceptional cases where personal data is transferred to the USA, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6(1)sentence 1 (f) GDPR.
