1. Legal foundations of the processing
The processing of personal data requires a legal basis, which we would like to present to you below.
For the processing of personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis. For the processing of personal data which is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract, where its party to the contract is the data subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis. This includes processing operations necessary to perform pre-contractual measures.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, which our company is subject to, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter c of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first interest stated, then Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing. The legitimate interest of our company is in the conduct of our business activities as well as in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of the security of our online offer.
II. Log files, hosting
In the server statistics, such data is automatically stored, which the browser transmits to us within the scope of our legitimate interest in performing analysis and for security reasons (so-called "logfiles").
This comprises the following data:
- Language and version of the browser software
- Operating system used and its interface
- Referrer-URL (the website previously visited)
- Hostname of the accessing computer (IP address)
- Date and time of the server request
- Time zone difference with Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific webpage)
- data quantity transferred
- Access status/ HTTP- Status code.
We usually cannot assign this data to specific individuals. This data will not be merged with other sources of data. The data is additionally deleted within 7 days following a statistical evaluation. Data the further retention of which is required for evidentiary purposes shall be exempted from the deletion until the final clarification of the respective incident.
We make use of hosting services. These serve to provide infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security and technical maintenance services to maintain the operation of this online offer.
In this process, we or our hosting provider process stock data, contact data, content data, contractual data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors of online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer.
III. Contractual processing
The personal data provided by you for contractual purposes e.g. in the case of requests for quotations such as the name, address or e-mail address shall only be used internally to respond to your requests, to process your orders or to provide you with access to certain contractual information.
When you contact us by e-mail or using the contact form we will save your information to answer your questions.
A transfer to third parties shall fundamentally not take place, unless valid data protection regulations justify a transfer or we are obliged to do so by law. You can withdraw your consent that you have granted with effect for the future at any time. In case of cancellation your data shall be immediately deleted if no statutory exception necessitating its further processing applies. Your data will otherwise be deleted if we have processed your request or the purpose of the storage no longer applies and there are no other contrary statutory exceptions. You can always inform yourself about the data stored about you.
You can, of course, also use our website without accepting cookies. You can also configure your browser settings in accordance with your wishes and in overall terms, e.g. refuse acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies, or delete cookies that have already been stored.

You can find out which function on our website places cookies further below in the area of the individual functions.
VI. Passing on of data to third parties
We only pass on data to third parties if this is necessary to fulfil the contract and/or we are statutorily obliged and/or entitled to do so in an individual case.
In some cases we make use of external service providers in accordance with our legitimate interests with regard to analysis, optimisation and economical operation of the online content. This always requires that the third-party providers of this content access the IP address of the users, due to the fact they could not send the content to their browsers without the IP address. The IP address is thus necessary for the presentation of this content. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also called "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. Using “Pixel Tags” information such as user traffic can be evaluated on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may include, among other things, technical information similar to the logfiles. We have listed our service providers below.
If your data is to be used for other purposes, we will inform you beforehand and use the data only if you have explicitly declared your consent to this.
VII. Rights of the data subject
You have a right to information about the personal data stored by us. According to the statutory provisions you are also entitled to the correction of incorrect data, blocking, data portability and deletion of your personal data. To do so please send an email to us with the subject line "Privacy".
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the law. If you have provided your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. This does not affect the legality of the processing performed on the basis of the consent until the revocation is received.
You can object to the future processing of your personal data in accordance with the legal requirements at any time. The objection may in particular be made against processing for direct marketing purposes.
VIII. Storage duration of the personal data
We store personal data for the duration of the respective statutory retention period or as long as the purpose of the collection continues to apply. Following the expiry of the retention period, the data will be routinely deleted, unless there is a need to initiate a contract or fulfil the contract. Unless the users' data is deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted insofar as this is possible. The data is blocked accordingly if possible and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for instance, to data of users which must be stored for commercial or fiscal law reasons.

We make every effort to store your personal data by making use of all the technical and organisational options available in such a way that the provisions of the data protection acts are observed and thus to protect this data.
