II General information on data processing

As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

Information on the scope, purpose and legal basis of the processing of personal data can be found in the respective chapters of this privacy policy.

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

III. Provision of the website and creation of log files

Each time our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data is collected in this process:

a) Information about the type of browser and the version used b) The operating system of the user c) The user’s Internet service provider d) The IP address of the user e) Date and time of access f) Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website g) Websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website

This data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

IV. Use of cookies

V. Contact form and e-mail contact

Our website contains a contact form that can be used for electronic contact. If a user makes use of this option, the data entered in the input mask is transmitted to us and stored. The data collected can be found in the respective input mask.

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the submission process and reference is made to this privacy policy.

Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided under point 1. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for processing the conversation.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DSGVO. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

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

If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.

VI. Third Party Cookies

Google Analytics

This website uses the service “Google Analytics”, which is offered by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), a company registered and operated under Irish law with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated in this way is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in rare exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then shortened there. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

The storage of cookies can be prevented by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. In this case, however, it may be possible that not all functions of this website can be fully used.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the Google cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link(https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data as long as the accuracy of your data disputed by you is verified, if you refuse the deletion of your data due to unauthorized data processing and instead request the restriction of the processing of your data, if you need your data for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims after we no longer need this data after the purpose has been achieved or if you have objected on the grounds of your particular situation as long as it is not yet determined whether our legitimate reasons prevail.

If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

(5) for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
