II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

We only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only after consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(a) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

When the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as legal basis.

If the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as legal basis for processing.

3. Data erasure and storage time

The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

III. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected:

  1. (1) Information about the browser type and version used
  2. (2) User’s operating system
  3. (3) Internet service provider of the user
  4. (4) IP address of the user
  5. (5) Date and time of access
  6. (6) Websites from which the user’s system reaches our website
  7. (7) Websites accessed by the user’s system via our website
  8. (8) Name and URL of the file retrieved
  9. (9) Notification whether the request was successful

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us 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.

Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR also lies in these purposes.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are erased or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of objection and erasure

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

3. Purpose of data processing

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us only for the treatment of the establishment of contact. In the event of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those that were sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user is finished.
