III. General information about data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

We collect and use personal information of our users only to the extent necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of personal information of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal information, Art. 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the legal basis for the processing of personal information.

In the processing of personal information necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

Insofar as processing of personal information is required to fulfil a legal obligation that is subject to our company, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal information, Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for processing.

3. Data deletion and storage duration

Personal information of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceased. In addition, such storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Blocking or erasure of data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfilment of the contract.

IV. Provision of the website and creation of logfiles

1. Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data is collected:

  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • The files requested during the access

The data is also stored in the logfiles of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal information of the user does not take place.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. In this regard, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used 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.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest is in the processing of data according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data for providing the website, this is the case when the respective session is completed.

In the case of storing the data in log files, this will be after no more than seven days. An additional storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or anonymized, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Opposition and removal possibility

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in logfiles is essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of opposition on the part of the user.

V. E-mail contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

On our website e-mail addresses are listed, which can be used for electronic contact. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted by e-mail will be stored.

In this context, there is no disclosure of the data 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 is in the presence of the consent of the user in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims to conclude a contract, additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The processing of the personal information from the input mask serves us only to process the contact. In the case of contact via e-mail, this also includes the required legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. For the personal information 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 can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified.

5. Opposition and removal possibility

The user has the possibility at any time to revoke his consent to the processing of the personal information. If the user contacts us by email, he may object to the storage of his personal information at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot continue.
All personal information stored in the course of contacting will be deleted in this case.
