Purposes of data processing, legal basis, and legitimate interests of the responsible party for processing the data and duration of storage
The use of our web pages is usually possible without providing personal data. We only ask for your personal data so far as it is needed to provide to you our Internet offerings and services. So far as you give us your personal data (for example name, address, email or telephone number), this is always on a voluntary basis. Without your consent, we only process your data so far as obtaining your prior consent is not possible due to practical reasons, and legal provisions explicitly permit the processing of the data.
Data processing happens in the following cases:
When accessing our web pages, the system collects and stores information in so-called server log files (“log files”) that the browser automatically transmits to us. This includes:
We cannot allocate this data to a particular person; it is not possible for us to trace your identity. The data of the log files is always stored separately from other personal data; this data is not merged with any other data sources.
On the bases of Art. 6 section 1 lit. f) GDPR, we process this data to provide the content of our web presence and to guarantee the functionality of our information technology systems, to optimize our web pages, and to evaluate system security and stability. The data is stored for a period of [seven days] and then automatically deleted.
We do not evaluate any user access. Also we do not create any pseudonymous user profiles (no “tracking”).
Cookies are small text files that are sent by the particular server whenever you visit a web page. They are filed in a designated directory on the device of the user. When you visit the web page again, the Internet browser of the user sends back to the server the cookie previously sent. In this way general usage data can be recorded and evaluated. However, cookies do not allow you to draw any direct conclusions on the actual person, name and address of the user.
When opening individual pages of our web presence, we use temporary cookies (so-called “session cookies”) that are only valid as long as you are on our web pages and your browser session is open. After ending your visit, these “session cookies” are automatically deleted when you close your web browser.
So far as you use our contact form on our web pages or send inquiries via email, your email address including any contact details you have given us voluntarily (such as name, address, telephone number) will be stored on our system for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in case of any follow-up questions. Legal bases are – depending on content of your inquiry – Art. 6 section 1 lit. b) or Art. 6 section 1 lit. f) GDPR; legitimate purposes are the processing and follow-up of user inquiries as well as follow-up contact of users for consulting and evaluation purposes. The data given to us will be deleted as soon as the intended purpose of the data processing is no longer given, unless we are obliged to store the data for a specific period by law.
We do not disclose your data to a third party. In particular, we do not disclose your data to recipients based outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area.
To process personal data, we use, in part, the services of external providers within the scope of order processing according to Art. 28 GDPR (particularly IT service providers). They are carefully selected and contracted by us; they are bound by our instructions and controlled by us regularly.
Furthermore, you have the right to file a complaint to a regulatory authority.
We have appropriate technical security measures in place for the data disclosed to us to prevent the loss, the destruction, the disclosure, and the access by unauthorized persons; we constantly adapt these measures to technical progress.
Our web pages use an SSL / TLS encryption for safeguarding confidential information during the transmission, for example when you send us an inquiry via the contact form on our web pages. You will recognize an encrypted connection when the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://“ and when you see the lock in your browser line. When the SSL / TLS encryption is activated, the data that you are transmitting to us cannot be read along by a third party.
Please be aware that there may be security risks when data is transmitted on the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email). It is not possible to protect such data completely against access by third parties.
We link to websites of other providers with who we are not associated (third party). Please be aware that we have no influence on what data is processed by such providers when you click on such a link. Since we have no control over the data processing by a third party, we cannot be held responsible. For more information concerning the processing of your data by such third parties, please check out the data protection information of the respective provider.
We make adjustments to our information concerning the processing and protection of your personal data from time to time in order to adapt to state-of-the-art technology and modified framework conditions. We recommend that you check out this page regularly to be informed about adjustments.
