General information about data processing
Scope of processing of personal data
In principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our content and services. The processing of the personal data of our users is carried out regularly and only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal provisions.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, art. 6 para. 1 version a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as a legal basis.
The processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a contracting party shall be governed by art. 6 para. 1 version b of the GDPR as a legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out precontractual measures.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first-mentioned interest, art. 6 para. 1 version f of the GDPR serves as a legal basis for the processing.
Data erasure and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to exist. In addition, such storage may occur if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the responsible person is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data takes place even if a storage period prescribed by the standards specified expires, unless there is a need to continue to store the data for the conclusion of a contract, for the performance of a contract or for security reasons.
We take appropriate technical and organisational measures in accordance with art. 32 of the GDPR, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the differing probability of occurrence and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk. Measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as its access, input, disclosure, availability and separation.
One of the security measures is the encrypted transfer of data between your browser and our server.
Collaboration with processors and third parties
If, in the context of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties), transmit it to them or otherwise grant access to the data, this will only be carried out on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. if transmission of the data to third parties, such as to payment service providers, according to art. 6 para. 1 version b of the GDPR is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract) that you have consented to, a legal obligation stipulates this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. the use of agents, web hosters, etc.).
If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called "Order processing contract", this is carried out on the basis of art. 28 of the GDPR.
Transfers to third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or this occurs in the context of the use of third party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this will only be carried out if it is to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, due to a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we only process or have the data processed in a third country in the presence of the special conditions of art. 44 et seq. of the GDPR. That's why the processing is carried out e.g. on the basis of specific guarantees, such as the officially recognised level of data protection (e.g. for the US through the Privacy Shield) or compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").
Provision of the website and creation of log files
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 here:
- Information about the browser type and version used
- The operating system of the user
- The Internet service provider of the user
- The IP address of the user
- Date and time of access
- Websites from which the user's system arrives at our website
- Websites accessed by the user's system through our website
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. Storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.
Legal basis and purpose of data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data in the log files is art. 6 para. 1 version f of the GDPR. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to enable delivery of our website to the user's computer. To do this, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session. Storage in log files is carried out to ensure the functionality of our website. In addition, we use the data to optimise our website, to ensure the security of our information technology systems and for the purpose of tracking the suspected unlawful use of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this respect. For these purposes, our legitimate interest is in the processing of data according to art. 6 para. 1 version f of the GDPR.
Duration of storage and possibility of objection and removal
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data for the provision of our website, this is the case when the respective session is terminated.
In the case of storage of the data in log files, the anonymisation of the IP addresses takes place after 7 days and deletion after 70 days at the latest. Any further storage is possible on suspicion of unlawful use of our information technology systems for security reasons.
The collection of data for the provision of our website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility to object on the part of the user.

You have the right to request information about whether your personal data is transmitted to a third country or an international organisation. In this context, you can request to be informed about the appropriate guarantees in accordance with art. 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.
Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the responsible person, if the processed personal data concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The responsible person must make the correction without delay.

- if you contest the correctness of your personal information for a period of time that enables the responsible person to verify the correctness of your personal information;
- the processing is unlawful and you refuse the erasure of the personal data and instead demand the restriction of the use of the personal data;
- the responsible person no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
- if you have objected to the processing pursuant to art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR and it is not yet certain whether the legitimate reasons of the responsible person outweigh your reasons.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, this data – apart from its storage – may only be used with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be notified by the responsible person before the restriction is lifted.
Right to erasure
You can request the responsible person to delete personal information concerning you without delay. The responsible person is obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
- The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
- You revoke your consent, upon which the processing according to art. 6 para. 1 version a or art. 9 para. 2 version a of the GDPR was based and there is no other legal basis for processing.

- for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to art. 9 para. 2 version h and i as well as art. 9 para. 3 of the GDPR;
- for archival purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes according to art. 89 para. 1 of the GDPR, insofar as the aforementioned law is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of this processing, or;
- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to information
If you have the right of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing vis-à-vis the responsible person, he is obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have a right vis-à-vis the responsible person to be informed about these recipients.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive personal data concerning you that you have made available to a responsible person in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another responsible person without hindrance by the responsible person to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that
- the processing is based on consent according to art. 6 para. 1 version a of the GDPR or art. 9 para. 2 version a of the GDPR or on a contract according to art. 6 para. 1 version b of the GDPR and
- the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to ensure that the personal data concerning you is transmitted directly from one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons thus may not be affected.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority which has been transferred to the responsible person.
Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons that arise from your particular situation, against the processing of your personal data, which is carried out pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 version e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The responsible person will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
Regardless of Directive 2002/58/EC, you have the option, in the context of the use of information society services, to exercise your right to object through automated procedures that use technical specifications.
Right of withdrawal of the data protection consent declaration
You have the right to withdraw your data protection consent declaration at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
Automated decision on an individual basis including profiling
You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – that will have legal effect or affect you significantly in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision
- is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the responsible person,
- is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the responsible person is subject, and where such legislation contains reasonable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests or
- takes place with your express consent.
However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to art. 9 para. 1 of the GDPR, unless art. 9 para. 2 version a or g of the GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or legal remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your domicile, place of work or place of alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you violates the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and outcomes of the complaint, including the possibility of a legal remedy pursuant to article 78 of the GDPR.
