Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your name, address, date of birth, e-mail address and payment data, but also your IP address. We describe below how we process your personal data.
- Visit of our website and creation of so-called log files
Description and scope of data processing: When you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information that your Internet browser transmits to us. The following data is collected and processed in this context:
– the current IP address of the Internet connection you are using;
– if you visit our website via a link, the page from which you visit us;
– the web pages you visit within our website;
– the date and time of your visit;
– the operating system you use, the browser name (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) and the browser version;
– the name of your Internet access provider;
– the amount of data transferred.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in so-called log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website.
Legal basis for data processing: The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-DSGVO.
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 purpose of the storage in log files is to ensure the functionality and stability of the website. In addition, we use the data for statistical purposes, to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-DSGVO.
Duration of storage: The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, unless contractual or legal obligations prevent deletion.
- Contact form and e-mail contact
The provision of personal data by you is neither required by law nor by contract, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide us with personal data. Failure to provide personal data, insofar as this is mandatory, means that it is not possible to contact you via the contact form or call you back.
Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail addresses provided. In this case, your personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.
Your data will not be passed on to third parties.
Legal basis for data processing: the legal basis for the processing of data transmitted via the contact form and the legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f EU-DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is to respond to the contact request of the sender. If the contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b EU-DSGVO.
Purpose of data processing: The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact request. The other personal data processed during the submission process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
Duration of storage: The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, unless contractual or legal obligations prevent deletion. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with you has ended, unless contractual or legal obligations prevent deletion. The conversation is terminated when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively resolved.

The conclusion of contracts with us is not dependent on you providing us with personal data in advance.
