III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

We process the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide 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 it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

2. 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 Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO 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 also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as a legal basis in the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data.

If the 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 DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, the data may be stored 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

Each time you access our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.

The following data is collected:

  • Date and time of access

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This does not affect the user’s IP address or other data that enables the data to be assigned to a user. These data are 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 is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

3. 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 IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data to provide the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

V. Use of cookies

Some of our Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. a consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.

VI. Newsletter

If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you agree to the owner of the e-mail address provided and to receive the newsletter.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that the newsletter is sent in an agreed manner. In the course of this procedure, the potential recipient can be added to a mailing list. The user then receives a confirmation e-mail to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner. Only if the confirmation takes place, the address is taken up actively in the distributor.

We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and offers.

Newsletter2Go is used as newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling your data and using it for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a German, certified provider, which was selected after the requirements of the data security basic regulation and the Federal Law for Data Protection.

Further information can be found here: https://www.newsletter2go.co.uk/information-for-newsletter-recipients/

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, e-mail address and their use to send the newsletter at any time, for example via the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.

For this reason, we ask you to inform yourself about our data protection measures at regular intervals by inspecting our data protection declaration.

VII. Registration

Our website does not (currently) offer the possibility of registration.

VIII. Contact form and e-mail contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

On our website there is an inquiry form and a contact form which can be used for electronic contact. If a user makes use of this possibility, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. These data are:

  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of registration

Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

The data will not be passed on to third parties in this context. The data will be used exclusively for the processing of the conversation.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

3. Purpose of data processing

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us exclusively for the processing of the establishment of contact. In case of contacting us by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

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

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. 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 the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been conclusively clarified.

The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.

IX. Web analysis by Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis program of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your terminal, to help the website analyze how users use our services. The information generated in this way is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Through the IP anonymization process activated by us, your IP address will be previously shortened by Google within the European Union. 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 to evaluate your use of our services, compile reports on your activities and provide other services. Google does not combine this data with other (user) data. You can manage the use of cookies yourself via your browser and device settings and delete cookies or prevent the setting of cookies. You can also prevent the collection of data generated in this way and the processing of this data by Google by installing the browser plug-in available at the following link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en) or by setting an opt-out cookie via the following link, which prevents the future collection of your data: Deactivate Google Analytics. On smartphones, tablets etc. you can deactivate this data collection in the menu item Settings/Data protection of the app. Further information on Google’s terms of use and data protection can be found at: https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/us/ and https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-US.

Google is certified according to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which ensures that the level of protection of natural persons guaranteed by the DSGVO is not impaired by data transfers (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

X. Rights of the data subject

If personal data is processed by you, you are the data subject within the meaning of the DSGVO and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the person responsible:

1. Right to information

You can request confirmation from the person responsible as to whether personal data relating to you will be processed by us.

In the event of such processing, you may request the following information from the data controller:

(1) the purposes for which the personal data will be processed;

(2) the categories of personal data processed;

(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you has been or will be disclosed;

(4) the planned duration of the retention of the personal data relating to you or, if it is not possible to provide specific information in this regard, criteria for determining the retention period;

(5) the existence of a right to rectify or delete personal data concerning you, a right to limit the processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;

(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;

(7) all available information on the origin of the data, if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;

(8) the existence of automated decision-making including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 (1) and (4) DSGVO and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the data subject.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with the transfer.

2. Right to rectification

You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed by the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The data controller must carry out the rectification immediately.

3. The right to limit the processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted:

(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time which allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to erase the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;

(3) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or

(4) if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and it has not yet been established whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data – apart from their storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

If the processing restriction has been limited in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to cancellation

(a) Duty to delete

You may request the data controller to delete the personal data concerning you immediately and the data controller is obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) Personal data relating to you shall no longer be necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO.

(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.

(5) The deletion of your personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.

(6) The personal data relating to you have been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) DSGVO.

b) Information to third parties

If the person responsible has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete them in accordance with Art. 17 (1) DSGVO, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform the persons responsible for data processing who process the personal data that you, as the person concerned, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.

c) Exceptions

The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary.

(1) the exercise of freedom of expression and information;

(2) to fulfil a legal obligation which processing is subject to under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i as well as Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO;

(4) for archive purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or

(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have exercised your right to rectify, cancel or limit the processing of your personal data against the controller, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of such rectification, cancellation or limitation, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed of such recipients by the data controller.

6. Right to data transfer

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the responsible person in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to communicate this data to another data controller without being hindered by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

(1) the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and

(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data transfer does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

7. Right of objection

You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The person responsible will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.

You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection through automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of Information Society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until you revoke it.

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,

(2) is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or

(3) with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, at your place of work or at the place where the alleged infringement is alleged, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the DSGVO.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint was lodged will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 DSGVO.
