2. General information about data processing 2.1. Extent of personal dataprocessing
In general, we process personal data of our users only insofar as it is necessary to provide a well-functioning website, content and services. The processing of the personal data of our users only takes place with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the data processing is permitted by law.

2.2. Legal basis for personal dataprocessing
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for personal dataprocessing, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as legal basis.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as legal basis. This also applies to the preparatory processes required to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as personal data processing is required to fulfill a legal obligation subject to our company, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interest, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the above mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as legal basis for processing.

2.3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is deleted. In addition, such storage may be provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. A blocking or deletion of the data takes place even if a storage period is prescribed by the mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for a contract conclusion or a contract fulfillment.

3. Provision of the website and creation of log files 3.1. Description and scope of data processing
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data is collected:
  • Information on the browser type and version used Operating system of the user
  • Internet service provider of the user
  • IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
This data will be temporarily stored but will not be shared with other information about you.

3.2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

3.3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. In order to do this, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to 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 represent our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

3.4. Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. In case of collecting the data to provide the website, this is the case as soon as the respective session is completed. In case of storing data in log files, this is the case after a maximum of seven days. An additional storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

3.5. Opposition and removal possibility
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of contradiction on the part of the user.

4. Contact requests and email contact 4.1 Description and scope of data processing
It is possible to contact the indicated email address. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted by email will be stored. In this context, there is no disclosure of the data to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

4.2 Legal basis for data processing
Legal basis for the processing of transmitted data in the course of sending an email is Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. Additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if the email contact aims to conclude a contract.

4.3 Purpose of data processing
The processing of personal data from the contact only serves us to process and answer your request. In the case of contacting by email, this also includes the required legitimate interest in the data processing.

4.4 Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. For personal data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user ends. The conversation ends as soon as it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified and that the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements, such as, for example, in the event of subsequent contract execution.
