For questions concerning the data protection on this website, please use the available contact form.
In general, we process personal data of our users only to the extent required for providing a functional website, as well as our contents and services. The data is only processed with the user's consent. An exception exists in those cases where obtaining consent prior to the data processing is factually impossible and where the processing is permitted by law.
Where a person has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data, article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
Where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the affected person is party or where it is necessary in order to take steps at the request of the affected person prior to entering into a contract, article 6 paragraph 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Where the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, article 6 paragraph 1 letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Where the processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the affected person or any other natural person, article 6 paragraph 1 letter d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Where the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected person, article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In general, personal data is only retained until the purpose of its storage ceases to exist. Moreover, the data will be deleted or blocked as soon as a retention period set by the national or transnational governmental body ends, except when further storage is required to settle or fulfill a contract.
For every request made to view our website, data and information will be collected automatically from the requesting device. The following data is collected:
The data is saved in our system's log files. The data is not saved in combination with any other personal data of the user, and we are unable to personally identify the user based on the above data.
Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files.
Temporarily saving the user's IP address is necessary for the delivery of website files to the user's device.
The data is stored inside system log files for the purposes of ensuring the website's functionality and availability. Additionally, we use the data for protection and optimization of our technical infrastructure. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes.
The data is deleted as soon as it has served its purpose. For the data that is collected for website delivery, this is the case when the respective session ends. For the data saved in log files, this is the case after a duration of, at most, seven days. Extended storage is possible; in this case, the entries will be anonymized by deletion or distortion of user IP addresses.
The collection of data for the delivery of the website and the storage of data in log files are absolutely necessary for the website's continued operation. Because of this, it is not possible for the user to object to the collection.
Our website contains a contact form that can be used for contacting us electronically. When a visitor decides to make use of this option, the data entered into the form will be transmitted to us and stored. The following information is collected:
Alternatively, we may be contacted via email at the address provided earlier. In that case, the personal data that is sent as part of the email will be stored.
No data will be given to third parties in this context. The personal data will be used exclusively for handling the conversation.
Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data with the user's consent.
Where data is processed as a result of the transmission of an email, article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis. Additionally, where the email contact is made with the intention of entering into a contract, article 6 paragraph 1 letter b GDPR may serve as the legal basis.
The processing of personal data that was entered into the contact form or sent via email is done for the sole purpose of handling the conversation.
The data is deleted as soon as it has served its purpose. For the personal data collected via the provided contact form and for the data collected via email, this is the case when the respective conversation is concluded. A conversation is concluded when it is apparent from context that the subject matter is fully settled.
The user is at all times able to revoke the permission given to us for the processing of the their personal data. When contacting us via email, the user can disallow storage of their personal data at any point. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data collected as part of the contact request will then be deleted.
If your personal data is processed, the GDPR grants you, the data subject, the following rights towards the controller (us):
You can request from us a confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you is being processed.
Where that is the case, you can request access to the following information:
You have the right to be informed about whether or not personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. Where that is the case, you have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR relating to the transfer.
You have the right to have inaccurate data concerning you corrected. The rectification has to happen without undue delay.
You have the right to obtain from us restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
Where processing has been restricted under paragraph 1, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
When the processing was restricted as described above, you shall be informed by us before the restriction of processing is lifted.
You have the right to demand the erasure of personal data concerning you and we have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:
Where we have made the personal data public and ares obliged pursuant to paragraph 1 to erase the personal data, we, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist to the extent that processing is necessary:
We are obligated to communicate any rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom the personal data has been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed about those recipients.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on article 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f.
We will no longer process the personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
