    Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of their use

    a) When visiting the website

    When you visit our website, the browser used on your terminal device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automated deletion:

    • name of the retrieved file
    • date and time of retrieval
    • amount of data transferred
    • message as to whether the retrieval was successful
    • description of the type of web browser used
    • operating system used
    • the previously visited page
    • provider
    • your IP address

    The above data is processed by us for the following purposes:

    • ensuring a smooth connection of the website,
    • ensuring a comfortable use of our website,
    • evaluation of system security and stability, and
    • for other administrative purposes.

    The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para.1 lit.f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

    In addition, we use cookies and analysis and marketing services when you visit our website. You can find more detailed explanations of this under points 5 – 12 of this data protection declaration.

    b) When using our contact form

    For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website. In doing so, it is necessary to provide your name, a valid e-mail address and the specific inquiry, so that we know from whom the inquiry originates and in order to be able to answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.

    The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after completion of your request, unless another legitimation basis (e.g. a specific order) justifies further processing.

    Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para.1 lit.b DSGVO on the basis of your specific request.

    c) When using our newsletter

    On our website, there is the possibility to subscribe to a free e-mail newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us.

    • name
    • e-mail address

    In addition, the following data is collected during registration:

    • IP address of the calling computer
    • date and time of registration

    For the processing of data, your consent is obtained during the registration process and reference is made to this privacy policy.

    If you commission us with the provision of services and provide us with your e-mail address, this may subsequently be used by us to send a newsletter. In such a case, only direct advertising for our own similar goods or services will be sent via the newsletter.

    No data will be passed on to third parties in connection with the processing of data for the dispatch of newsletters. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

    The collection of the user’s e-mail address is used to deliver the e-mail newsletter. The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.

    The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Accordingly, the user’s e-mail address is stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.

    The other personal data collected during the registration process is usually deleted after a period of seven days.

    The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. This also enables revocation of consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.

    The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration to the newsletter by the user is in the presence of the user’s consent (Art. 6 para.1 lit.a DSGVO). The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f in conjunction with § 7 para.3 UWG.

    Transfer of data
    A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place.

    We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

    • you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 para.1 lit.a DSGVO,
    • the transfer is necessary according to Art.6 Abs.1 lit.f DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
    • in the event that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure in accordance with Art. 6 Para.1 lit.c DSGVO, as well as
    • this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para.1 lit.b DSGVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
