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
  • Data volume transferred
  • Message 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 aforementioned data will be 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 data collection purposes 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 analytics and marketing services when you visit our website. For more detailed explanations, please refer to the following items 5 – 12 of this privacy policy.

b) When using our contact form

For questions of any kind, we offer you the possibility 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 request so that we know from whom the request originates and so that we can answer it. Additional 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 you a newsletter. In such a case, only direct advertising for our own similar goods or services will be sent via the newsletter.

No data is passed on to third parties in connection with the processing of data for the dispatch of newsletters. The data will be 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 for 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, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. This also enables the 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 consent of the user (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

Cookies

We use so-called cookies in some areas of our website. Through such file elements, your computer can be identified as a technical entity during your visit to this website in order to facilitate your use of our offer – also during repeat visits.

However, you usually have the option of setting your Internet browser to inform you about the occurrence of cookies, so that you can allow or exclude them, or delete cookies that already exist.

Please use the help function of your Internet browser to obtain information on how to change these settings. We would like to point out that individual functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

Cookies do not allow a server to read private data from your computer or the data stored by another server. They do not cause any harm to your computer and do not contain viruses.

Unless specifically regulated below, we base the use of cookies on Art. 6 para.1 lit.f DSGVO. The processing is carried out to improve the functioning of our website. It is therefore necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests.

Use of Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (see https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active ).

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by clicking on the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) available browser plugin and install it.

We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

In addition, you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will then be set, which prevents the further collection of your data when visiting this website. This procedure is particularly recommended when accessing our site via mobile devices.

You can find more information on terms of use and data protection at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or under www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

We base the use of the aforementioned analysis tool on Art.6 Para.1 lit.f DSGVO: the processing is carried out to analyze user behavior and is therefore necessary to protect our legitimate interests.

Use of Matomo (formerly Piwik)

We use Matomo, an open source software for statistical analysis of user access.

Matomo uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The IP address of the users is shortened before it is stored, so that pseudonymous usage profiles of the users are created from the processed data.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this online offer is stored on our server and not passed on to third parties.

In addition, you can prevent collection by Matomo by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will then be set, which prevents the further collection of your data when visiting this website.

We base the use of the aforementioned analysis tool on Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f DSGVO: the processing is carried out to analyze user behavior and is therefore necessary to protect our legitimate interests.

At this point, please set Matomo’s IFRAME with the opt-out cookie (and turn on IP anonymization in the settings area).
