III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

We process the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to ensure a functioning website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

In addition, we use personal data to initiate contracts and for marketing purposes.

1. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This shall also apply to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR shall serve as the 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 fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing.

2. Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if the European or national legislator has provided for this in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless it is necessary for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

IV. 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 systems of the accessing computer.
This is necessary to ensure the usability of our system and our website. In doing so, we collect the following data:
• Information about the browser type and the version used
• 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 has accessed our website
• Websites accessed by the user's system from our website

The logfiles contain IP addresses or other data that allow an assignment to a user. The data is also stored in the log files of our system. As a matter of principle, 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 Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable a transfer of the website to the user's computer.

For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session in order to ensure the proper use of the website.
In addition, the data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website.
The data is also used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.

4. Duration of storage

Data will generally be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data to provide the services of the website, this is the case when the session is finished.

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

5. Right of objection and elimination

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

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
