While we make every effort to ensure your security when you visit our website, security risks, in particular, when online cannot be completely eliminated. If you have any questions regarding your data, you will find the contact details of the data controller at the end of this document.
When you visit our website, we collect personal data in accordance with the GDPR. We use this data solely to optimise the functionality and content of our website. In accordance with applicable laws and regulations, the collected data will only be retained for as long as you use the service. We comply with the statutory retention and erasure requirements.
When you contact us by email or by telephone we collect your data solely to process your inquiry in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. We may store user data in a "CRM system" or a comparable system. We will erase your inquiries when they are no longer needed. We will review this need every two years. The statutory archiving obligations apply in a supplementary manner.
We use hosting services to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for the purpose of operating this website.
We or our hosting provider process user data, content data and usage data of visitors to this website on the basis of our legitimate interests to offer an efficient and secure website in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR in conjunction with Article 28 GDPR. On this basis, we have entered into a data processing agreement. The data is processed completely anonymously and is used neither for automated decision-making nor for profiling.
A log file is automatically produced by the processing computer system. This means that information about the used device is stored as a log file on a server. These log files cannot be used to identify you. On the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, our website operator collects data about each access to its servers on which our web service is located:
Log files are stored for a maximum of seven days for security reasons (e.g. to investigate illegal activities). Data which needs to be stored to provide evidence are exempt from erasure until the relevant incident has been resolved.
Where we process data outside the European Union or the European Economic Area or in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, processing will only take place if it is necessary to meet our pre-contractual or contractual obligations, you have given consent to processing, for compliance with a legal obligation or for the purpose of our legitimate interests. Without prejudice to legal or contractual permits, we process the data or have the data processed in a third country only if the requirements of Article 44 et seq. GDPR have been met. Processing is carried out, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised assessment of the adequacy of the level of data protection (e.g. the "Privacy Shield" in the US) or in compliance with officially recognised contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses")
You can contact the competent supervisory authority at:
You have the right to withdraw your consent to data processing or collection at any time with effect for the future (Article 7 (3) GDPR).
You have the right to object to the future processing of data concerning you at any time (Article 21 GDPR).
