General Information on Data Processing
Scope of the Processing of Personal Data
As a matter of principle, we only process personal data of our users as far as this is necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users regularly only takes place with the user's consent. An exception is made in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
Data Deletion and Storage Duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Blocking or erasure of data is also carried out when a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.
Provision of the Website and Creation of log files
Description and Scope of Data Processing
Whenever our website is called up, our system automatically records data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data is collected:
- Information on the browser type and version used
- The user's operating system
- The Internet service provider of the user
- The IP address of the user
- Date and time of access
- Websites from which the user's system reaches our website
- Websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. Not affected by this are the IP addresses of the user or other data that allow the data to be assigned to a user. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
Legal Basis for Data Processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO.
Purpose of the Data Processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO.
Duration of the Storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the purpose of providing the website, this is the case when the relevant session has ended.
Possibility of Objection and Removal
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
It is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. 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.
Legal Basis for Data Processing
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6, Paragraph 1, letter f, DSGVO. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO.
Purpose of the Data Processing
The processing of personal data from a received email serves us solely to process the contact.
Duration of the Storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. For personal data sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation ends when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
Possibility of Objection and Removal
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. 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 the contact will be deleted in this case.

- is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the person responsible is subject and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or
- with your express consent.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible person shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of any person from the responsible person, to express his point of view and to challenge the decision.
