Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data is information with the help of which a person is identifiable or which describes his or her behavior, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes, among other things, the name, e-mail address or telephone number, but also data such as the IP address or websites visited.

In accordance with the principle of data minimization, we only process personal data if this is absolutely necessary for the purposes described in this data protection declaration or to fulfill a purpose requested by you. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties unless this is necessary and without your consent. We use your personal data to process your order, to answer your inquiry or to provide you with access to special information and offers.

Access data/ Server log files

When you visit the website, data about each access to the offer (so-called server log files) are collected. The access data include:

- Name of the accessed website,
- file, date and time of access,
- amount of data transferred,
- notification of successful retrieval,
- browser type and version,
- the user's operating system,
- Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
- IP address and the requesting provider.

We use this technical access information on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO (legitimate interest) exclusively to improve the attractiveness and usability of our websites and, if necessary, to detect technical problems and malfunctions on our website at an early stage. The data is stored for a period of 4 weeks.

Use of the contact form / contacting us

You can contact us easily and conveniently via a form. When using the contact form, personal data is only collected to the extent provided by you. You are free to use our contact form without providing personal data.

All information is provided voluntarily and is collected directly from you as the person concerned. Your voluntarily provided personal data will be stored for the purpose of processing your request and any follow-up questions that may arise, as well as for contacting you in this context. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

The same applies to contacting us by e-mail, telephone or mail. Please note that in this case further data resulting from the selected communication channel (e-mail address or transmitted telephone number) may be required.

The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO (consent) for the voluntary information and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO (legitimate interest) for the use of the information for processing the request.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after processing your request has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Please note that encrypted and/or signed communication may not be possible via the contact channels provided. For sending sensitive information, it is recommended to use the postal service.

Data subject rights

As a data subject, you have the fundamental right to information about what personal data has been stored about you and the right to correct incorrect data. If your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to store data, you have a right to the deletion or restriction of the processing of personal data. If the processing is based on consent (pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO or Art. 9 (2) a) DSGVO), this consent can be revoked at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation. In addition, you have a right to data portability.

To exercise these rights, please contact the responsible body or its data protection officer.

Legal basis for processing

Article 6 (1) lit. a) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

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) DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1lit. c) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) lit. d) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the 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 para. 1lit. f) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Security of your data

We use appropriate technical and organizational means to protect the data you provide against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously monitored and improved in accordance with technological developments and organizational possibilities.
