The protection of your data is of particular concern to us. Therefore, we process your data exclusively based on the legal provisions. In this data protection information, we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing on our website.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. an EU General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) f DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
General information on data processing
This website collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of a website by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information are stored in the log files of the webserver. The types and versions of browsers used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and time of access to the website, an Internet protocol address (IP address), the Internet service provider of the accessing system and other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems may be recorded.
When using these general data and information, no conclusions are drawn about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to correctly deliver the content of our website, to optimize the content of the website and the advertising for it, to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, as well as to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack.
Therefore, the anonymously collected data and information is, on the one hand, statistically analyzed and, on the other hand, evaluated to increase the data protection and data security of the enterprise to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process.
The anonymous data of the log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
Scope of the processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
