Purposes of data processing, legal basis, and legitimate interests of the responsible party for processing the data and duration of storage

General remarks concerning data processing

The use of our web pages is usually possible without providing personal data. We only ask for your personal data so far as it is needed to provide to you our Internet offerings and services. So far as you give us your personal data (for example name, address, email or telephone number), this is always on a voluntary basis. Without your consent, we only process your data so far as obtaining your prior consent is not possible due to practical reasons, and legal provisions explicitly permit the processing of the data.

Legal bases for processing your personal data are:

  • Art. 6 section 1 lit. a) GDPR, so far as you have consented explicitly to processing your data for a certain purpose,
  • Art. 6 section 1 lit. b) GDPR, so far as processing your data is required to fulfill a contract of which you are a contracting party and to perform pre-contractual measures, and
  • Art. 6 section. 1 lit. f) GDPR, so far as data processing is required to safeguard a legitimate interest of our business or of a third party, and conflicting interests and fundamental rights of the person concerned do not prevail.

Data processing happens in the following cases:

Accessing our web pages/log files

When accessing our web pages, the system collects and stores information in so-called server log files (“log files”) that the browser automatically transmits to us. This includes:

  • IP address of the accessing terminal device,
  • date and time you access,
  • name and URL of the file you access,
  • referrer URL (web page from which access is made) and links you access,
  • information concerning browser type, the used version and if necessary the operating system you used as well as the name of your access provider.

We cannot allocate this data to a particular person; it is not possible for us to trace your identity. The data of the log files is always stored separately from other personal data; this data is not merged with any other data sources.

On the bases of Art. 6 section 1 lit. f) GDPR, we process this data to provide the content of our web presence and to guarantee the functionality of our information technology systems, to optimize our web pages, and to evaluate system security and stability. The data is stored for a period of [seven days] and then automatically deleted.

Use of cookies

Our web pages use so-called cookies. The use of cookies is based on Art. 6 section 1 lit. f) GDPR for the purpose of providing the technical framework and optimizing our web pages (“legitimate interest”).

We do not evaluate any user access. Also we do not create any pseudonymous user profiles (no “tracking”).

Cookies are small text files that are sent by the particular server whenever you visit a web page. They are filed in a designated directory on the device of the user. When you visit the web page again, the Internet browser of the user sends back to the server the cookie previously sent. In this way general usage data can be recorded and evaluated. However, cookies do not allow you to draw any direct conclusions on the actual person, name and address of the user.

When opening individual pages of our web presence, we use temporary cookies (so-called “session cookies”) that are only valid as long as you are on our web pages and your browser session is open. After ending your visit, these “session cookies” are automatically deleted when you close your web browser.

If you prefer, you can prevent the use of cookies at any time in the settings of your web browser. Please check out the information of your web browser to find out how this is done. In this case however, it may be possible that you will not be able to use all functions of our web page.

Contact form | Email contact

So far as you use our contact form on our web pages or send inquiries via email, your email address including any contact details you have given us voluntarily (such as name, address, telephone number) will be stored on our system for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in case of any follow-up questions. Legal bases are – depending on content of your inquiry – Art. 6 section 1 lit. b) or Art. 6 section 1 lit. f) GDPR; legitimate purposes are the processing and follow-up of user inquiries as well as follow-up contact of users for consulting and evaluation purposes. The data given to us will be deleted as soon as the intended purpose of the data processing is no longer given, unless we are obliged to store the data for a specific period by law.

Disclosing your data to a third party

We do not disclose your data to a third party. In particular, we do not disclose your data to recipients based outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

To process personal data, we use, in part, the services of external providers within the scope of order processing according to Art. 28 GDPR (particularly IT service providers). They are carefully selected and contracted by us; they are bound by our instructions and controlled by us regularly.

Rights of the persons affected

  • So far as we are processing your personal data, you have the following rights:
  • So far as processing is based on Art. 6 section1 lit. f) GDPR (“legitimate purposes”), you may withdraw consent to the processing of your personal data according to Art. 21 GDPR.
  • You may withdraw consent to the processing of personal data for advertising and/or marketing purposes at any time without giving a reason. The data will then be no longer processed for advertising and/or marketing purposes.
  • So far as personal data was disclosed to us based on consent, you have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent at any time without giving a reason by notifying the responsible party as indicated in section I. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of any processing that took place before such notification of withdrawal.
  • In addition – when the respective legal requirements are fulfilled – you may claim following rights:
  • The right to obtain information about the processing of the respective personal data, about the purposes for processing, the categories of the data and their origins in case the data was not collected directly, the categories of recipients personal data, the intended period of storage as well as the rights of the affected person;
  • The right to demand correction of incorrect or incomplete personal data;
  • The right to demand that personal data is deleted especially if the data is no longer necessary for the purpose why it was collected and we are not obliged to store the data based on legal or contractual requirements;
  • The right to limit the processing of personal data;
  • The right to demand data portability of the personal data disclosed to us in a commonly machine-readable format and/or to demand transfer of such data to another responsible person.

Furthermore, you have the right to file a complaint to a regulatory authority.

Data security

We have appropriate technical security measures in place for the data disclosed to us to prevent the loss, the destruction, the disclosure, and the access by unauthorized persons; we constantly adapt these measures to technical progress.

Our web pages use an SSL / TLS encryption for safeguarding confidential information during the transmission, for example when you send us an inquiry via the contact form on our web pages. You will recognize an encrypted connection when the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://“ and when you see the lock in your browser line. When the SSL / TLS encryption is activated, the data that you are transmitting to us cannot be read along by a third party.

Please be aware that there may be security risks when data is transmitted on the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email). It is not possible to protect such data completely against access by third parties.

Links to web pages of a third party

We link to websites of other providers with who we are not associated (third party). Please be aware that we have no influence on what data is processed by such providers when you click on such a link. Since we have no control over the data processing by a third party, we cannot be held responsible. For more information concerning the processing of your data by such third parties, please check out the data protection information of the respective provider.

Adjustments of data protection information

We make adjustments to our information concerning the processing and protection of your personal data from time to time in order to adapt to state-of-the-art technology and modified framework conditions. We recommend that you check out this page regularly to be informed about adjustments.
