Legal basis for processing personal data

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

If we process personal data to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 Para. lb GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

To the extent that processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. lc GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. ld GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect 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, Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Data deletion and storage period

Personal data of data subjects will be deleted or blocked by us as soon as the purpose for which they were stored no longer applies.

If there are legal regulations to which we are subject, storage can also take place. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by these regulations expires, unless the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract requires further storage of the data.

Provision of the website and creation of log files

a) Description and scope of data processing

When you access our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system from which you access our site each time you access it.

The following data is collected:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • The user’s operating system
  • The user’s Internet service provider
  • The user’s IP address
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the system of the user reaches our website
  • Websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website
  • search engine used including keywords
  • length of stay
  • last page opened before leaving the website

This data is also stored in so-called log files in our system. We store this data separately from other personal data relating to you and do not combine them at any time.

Legal basis for data processing
For the temporary storage of data and log files, we use Art. 6 Paragraph If GDPR.

b) Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery 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.

The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. The data also serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. This also lies in our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. lf GDPR. The data will not be evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.

c) Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was collected has been achieved and is no longer required, unless legal regulations apply.

If the data is collected to provide the website, this is the case when you leave our website.

If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after eight weeks at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the users’ IP addresses are deleted or altered so that it is no longer possible to assign the calling client.

d) Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of data to provide the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. For this reason, the user has no opportunity to object.

Use of cookies and other technologies

a) Description and scope of data processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the internet browser or by the internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user accesses a website, a cookie can be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is accessed again.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the accessing browser can be identified even after a page change.

The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

  • Language settings
  • Log-in information

We also use cookies on our website that enable analysis of users’ surfing behavior.

In this way, the following data can be transmitted: –

  • Search terms entered
  • Frequency of page views
  • Use of website functions.

The data collected in this way is pseudonymized using technical precautions. It is therefore no longer possible to assign the data to the accessing user. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the users. When accessing our website, users are informed by an information banner about the use of cookies for analysis purposes and are referred to this data protection declaration. In this context, there is also a note on how the storage of cookies can be prevented in the browser settings.

b) Legal basis for data processing

We use Art. 6 Para. lf GDPR to process personal data using cookies.

c) Purpose of data processing

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For this it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after a page change.

The user data collected through technically necessary cookies is not used to create user profiles. The analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies we learn how the website is used and can therefore continually optimize our offering. For these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1f GDPR.

d) Duration of storage, possibility of objection and removal

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted to our site by the user. Therefore, as a user, you also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to fully use all functions of the website.

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by our service provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, by activating IP anonymization on our website, your IP address will be shortened and therefore anonymized by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de).

Social media

We maintain online presences on social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and active users and to inform them about our services.

We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can lead to risks for users as it could, for example, make it more difficult to enforce users’ rights. With respect to US providers certified under the adequacy decision, they are required to comply with EU data protection standards.

In addition, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created based on usage behavior and the resulting interests of the user. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, for advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are typically stored on users’ computers to record users’ usage and interests. In addition, data may also be stored in the usage profiles, regardless of the devices used by users (especially if users are members of the respective platforms and log in to them).

The processing of users’ personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing users and communicating with users. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR If the users are asked by the respective providers for consent to data processing (i.e. declare their consent, e.g. by ticking a checkbox or clicking a confirmation button), the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the objection options, we refer to the information provided by the providers listed below.

When it comes to requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we would also like to point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only providers have access to user data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, you can contact us.
