2. Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of their use

a) Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we only process personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out after the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, point (c) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

b) Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

c) When visiting the website

When you visit our website, the browser used on your end device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is NOT stored.

d) Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent.

These data are processed based on point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the data are processed based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries submitted to us (point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR) or based on your consent (point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR) if it has been obtained.

The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g., after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

e) When using our e-mail addresses

If you send us e-mails, your e-mail address will only be used for correspondence with you. Information that you send to us unencrypted by e-mail can possibly be read by third parties on the transmission path. As a rule, we are also unable to verify your identity and do not know who is hiding behind an e-mail address, so that legally secure communication by simple e-mail is therefore not guaranteed.

If we are approached by e-mail, we assume that you agree to unencrypted communication by this means and that this can take place in this way, insofar as this does not conflict with statutory regulations.

3. Data transmission

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We share your personal data with our affiliates, other trusted companies or persons who process it on our behalf. This is done based on our instructions and in accordance with our privacy policy and other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

We will only share your personal information with third parties if:

a) you have given your express consent in accordance with point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR,

b) this is legally permissible and necessary according to point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you,

c) in the event that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to point (c) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR, as well as

d) the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise, or defence of legal claims pursuant to point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data.

4. Cookies

b) The use of technically necessary cookies serves to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies.

The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the storage of required cookies to ensure the technically error free and optimized provision of the operator’s services. If your consent to the storage of the cookies and similar recognition technologies has been requested, processing occurs exclusively based on the consent obtained (point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG); this consent may be revoked at any time.

e) Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted from it to our site. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

You can recognize whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the appearance of the lock icon in the URL line of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
