I. General information regarding data processing
1. Scope of the processing of personal data
We only process the personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary in order to provide a functional website, as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users usually only takes place with the user's consent. An exception applies in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons, and where 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 the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Section 1 letter a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for this. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 Section 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis for this. This also applies to processing activities that are necessary in order to perform pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary in order to satisfy a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Section 1 letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis for this. If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Section 1 letter d GDPR serves as the legal basis for this. If processing is necessary in order to safeguard 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, Art. 6 Section 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for it being stored has ceased to exist. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU directives, laws or other regulations to which the data controller responsible is subject. The data is then also blocked or deleted if a storage period stipulated by the standards cited expires, unless there is a requirement for further storage of the data in order to conclude or fulfil a contract.
II. Provision of the website and creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data processing
very time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data are collected:
(1) Information regarding the browser type and version used
(2) The user’s operating system
(3) The user’s IP address
(4) Date and time of access
The data is also stored in our system’s log files. This data is not saved together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 Section 1 letter f GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processing
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. Storage in log files takes place to ensure the functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data enables us to optimise the website and ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 letter f GDPR.
4. Duration of storage
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of data acquisition for the provision of the website, this applies when the relevant session is ended. If the data are stored in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. It is possible to save the data beyond that. In this case, the user IP addresses are deleted or altered so that it is no longer possible to assign the accessing client.
5. Option of objection and removal
The acquisition of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for operation of the website. The user therefore has no option to object.
III. Email contact
It is possible to contact us via the email addresses provided on our website. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the email is stored. Data transmitted in this way are not passed on to third parties. The data are used exclusively for processing the correspondence.
1. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted during the course of sending an email is Art. 6 Section 1 letter f GDPR. If email contact takes place with the intention of concluding a contract, Art. 6 Section 1 letter b GDPR serves as an additional legal basis for processing.
2. Purpose of data processing
If you contact us by email, this also constitutes the legitimate interest required for processing the data.
Any further personal data processed within the scope of the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact email and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
3. Duration of storage
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. For personal data sent by email, this is the case when the respective correspondence with the user has ended. Correspondence ends when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been definitively clarified.
Any additional personal data acquired during the sending process are deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
4. Option of objection and removal
The user has the option of withdrawing their consent to the processing of their personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by email, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such cases, the correspondence cannot continue.
If consent is withdrawn, or if you wish to delete or correct your personal data, or if you wish to submit a request for information regarding your personal data stored by us, simply inform us by email at the following address:
All personal data stored during the course of contact will be deleted in this case.

5. Right to information
If you have asserted the right to data correction or deletion, or to the restriction of data processing in relation to the data controller, the data controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this data correction or deletion, or the restriction of data processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Section 1 letters e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The data controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless they can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as this relates to such direct marketing.
