Privacy on our website

This website does not actively track any data. Even though we aren't feeding your browser with cookies or trackers, we are forced to store some data for legal reasons.

2. Storage of Log Files

When our web pages are simply called up by the program used by the visitor (user) to display Internet pages (the so-called "web browser" or just "browser"), which the user has installed on the terminal device used by him, the following information is transmitted to the web server used by us:

- The IP address of the requesting end device
- Date and time of the call of our web pages
- Information about the time difference between the requesting host and the web server
- The content of the request or the file that was transferred to the user
- The access status (successful transmission, error etc)
- The amount of data transferred in each case in bytes
- The website from which the user's access was made
- The browser used by the user, the operating system, the interface, the language of the browser and the version of the browser software

This information is stored by us on our web server in a so-called log file (in a "log file"). This would allow us to at least indirectly establish a personal reference, i.e. by determining the owner or company owner of the IP address via information from the access service providing the IP addresses. However, this is only possible if this access service is legally entitled to provide the information. The aforementioned log files are processed by us for the following purposes:

- Ensuring a smooth connection setup of our website
- Ensuring a comfortable use of our website
- Evaluating the system security and stability of our website

The legal basis for the collection of log file log data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f GDPR (legitimate interest of the responsible party). Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about the person of the user; except for cases of intended disruptions to the functionality of our website or cases of misuse of our services. Apart from these exceptions, no personal user profiles are therefore created and the data is generally not passed on to third parties.

To protect against attacks and to ensure proper operation, all accesses to our Internet offering with the complete IP address are temporarily and access-protected analyzed automatically on a security system (firewall) for possible risks.

We will only try to find out which person is behind an IP address in the event of illegal attacks or misuse of our services. Otherwise, this information remains hidden from us and we do not attempt to obtain the data of the owner of an IP address.

The log files are stored for a maximum of seven days. Excluded from this short storage period are log files about accesses that are necessary for further tracking of attacks and malfunctions.

3. Data processing based on consent (Art. 6 GDPR)

Use of our contact form

For questions of any kind, we offer the possibility to contact us via a form provided on the website.

Our data processing for the purpose of contacting us electronically is based on a voluntarily given consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a GDPR.

For contacting us via the provided form, it is necessary and sufficient to provide a valid e-mail address. Further information given in the form fields can be provided voluntarily.

The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be deleted after the reason for contacting us has been dealt with, unless they may be used further by us for the purposes of a contract or for pre-contractual measures pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 b GDPR or on another legal basis.

We provide information on the storage period/deletion under section 4.

Contact by telephone, contact by e-mail

Contacting us by telephone is possible via the telephone number given on our websites and via the e-mail addresses given there.

The data collection and further processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 GDPR the basis of a voluntarily given consent or, insofar as a pre-contractual or contractual relationship exists, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b GDPR.

Insofar as you contact us by telephone, we may also collect personal data for other purposes that are only disclosed to us in the course of the telephone call. If, as a result of the telephone call, we collect personal data from the party to the call about whose processing he has not yet been informed, we will inform him separately if necessary.

The storage period of personal data collected as a result of telephone calls is determined by the purpose of the call.

We provide information on the storage period/deletion in other respects under Section 4.

4. Storage duration

4.1 We store the personal data collected by us for as long as is necessary for our purposes or the data subject has consented to storage beyond this period in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation.

4.2 In the provisions of this data protection information, we have already provided information at various points on the storage period or the criteria for determining this period on a sector-specific basis.

4.3 Personal data collected for the purposes of a contract will also be stored until the expiry of the statutory retention obligations arising for our activities. Thereafter, they will be deleted unless processing is still necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which we are subject.

4.4 The retention and documentation obligations under tax and commercial law that come into consideration provide for a retention obligation of six or ten years for the commercial documents specified in Sections 238 and 257 of the German Commercial Code. Corresponding provisions are contained in Section 147 of the German Fiscal Code (Abgabenordnung) for the retention of the documents referred to herein.

4.5 The expiry of the retention period does not automatically result in a deletion obligation, as there may still be a justified interest in archiving, e.g. in order to be able to provide information in the event of legal disputes. This also applies to cases of preservation of evidence within the framework of the statute of limitations. According to Sections 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (BGB), these limitation periods can be up to 30 years, with the regular limitation period being three years.

4.6 In the area of the provision of telecommunications services, we may be subject to storage obligations pursuant to Section 113b of the Telecommunications Act.

4.7 The customer may delete personal data stored by us on his storage space at any time during the contract and until the end thereof.

5. Data subject rights

The persons affected by data processing have the right:

in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, to request information about the processing of personal data with the information from Art. 15 (1) and (2) GDPR

in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, object at any time on grounds relating to their particular situation to the processing of personal data concerning them, where the processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests. We will then no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims

pursuant to Article 20 GDPR, to receive the personal data concerning them which the data subjects have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance by, provided that the processing is based on consent or on the basis of a contract and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated processes.

6. Revocability of Consent

6.1 If the data subject has given us consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the processing of such data shall be lawful. The data subject may revoke his/her consent to us at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us by the data subject prior to the applicability of the GDPR, i.e. prior to May 25, 2018. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the data processed until the revocation. 6.2 The revocation of consent can be made informally with the subject "Revocation", stating the name and used contact information to the contact data stated in (1).

7. Right of complaint

Data subjects have the right to complain to a supervisory authority about us with regard to our handling of their personal data.

8. Obligation to provide data

Within the scope of our business relationship, users, interested parties or future customers must provide those personal data that are necessary for the establishment and implementation of a business relationship and the fulfillment of the associated contractual obligations or which we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we will usually have to refuse to conclude the contract or execute the order, or we will no longer be able to execute an existing contract and may have to terminate it. An anonymous conclusion of a contract is not intended, as well as no anonymous mediation of contract conclusions with third parties.

9. Amendment of this data protection information

This general data protection information does not require the consent of the data subjects and is subject to regular review with regard to any need for amendment. The respective previous version will be archived by us in the event of replacement by a new version.
