Our data protection statement uses terms defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). In order to keep the data protection statement legible and comprehensible, we have explained these terms below:
According to the GDPR, personal data are any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This means information such as your name, birth date, address, email address, IP address or phone number, as well as your user behaviour. By contrast, information that cannot be directly connected to your actual identity – such as websites generally preferred by all users or the number of users of a page – are not considered personal data.
Data subjects are all identified or identifiable natural persons whose personal data are processed by the Controller responsible for processing.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
The Controller or Controller responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the Controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
The processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. Public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.
Third parties are a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, Controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the Controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication by the data subject of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

We generally only collect and use personal data of our users if this is required to provide a functional website or our contents and services. Collection and use of your personal data usually takes place only with your consent. However, an exception shall apply in such cases where collection of advance consent is not possible for factual reasons and where processing of the data is nevertheless permitted by the law.
The data transmitted by or collected from you are only collected, used, processed, stored and – if required by law or contractually required – passed on to third parties only within the context of the applicable data protection laws (GDPR, Federal Data Protection Act and Telemedia Act).
Article 6 GDPR leads to various legal bases for processing of your personal data that are referred to from case to case in this data protection statement:
As soon as the purpose of storage of the respective personal data of the data subject no longer applies, they shall be deleted or blocked. However, storage may take place beyond this point of time if this was stipulated in European or national regulations, laws or other rules that we as Controller responsible for processing are subject to. Blocking or erasure of the data shall also take place if a storage period required by the standards named expires, except if further storage of such data is required for entering into a contract or performance of a contract.
The scope and nature of collection and use of your data will differ depending on whether you only visit our Website in order to call up information or whether you use our offers – such as contact form or email contact:
Purely informational use of our Website generally does not require you to provide us with any personal data. Instead, we collect, use and store information that is transmitted to us by the respective browser used by you during your visit of our Website automatically in the server log files.
The following data will be collected in the course of this:
We cannot assign the above data to specific persons. We will not combine these data with any other data sources, i.e. these data will not be stored together with other personal data such as your name, address, phone number or email address.
The legal basis for this temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, since our legitimate interests as presented below in this storage override your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms: The internet protocol address is considered personal data. The temporary storage of the internet protocol address by the system is necessary in order to permit transfer of our Website to your browser. For this purpose, the internet protocol address must remain stored for the duration of the session. Storage in log files shall take place in order to ensure the function of our Website. We also use the data for optimisation of our Website and to ensure the safety of our information-technical systems. The data are not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.
The data are erased as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection. If data are recorded for provision of our Website, this is the case when the respective session is ended. To the extent that the data were stored in log files, this is the case at the latest after seven (7) days.
Recording of the data for provision of our Website and storage of the data in log files is mandatory for operation of the website. Accordingly, you cannot object to this.
Our Website contains information in order to permit quick contact/communication.
If you contact us by email or via contact form, the personal data transmitted by you (name, email address, any further voluntary information such as phone number, firm) will be stored automatically.

These data will not be passed on to any third party. The data will solely be used for our communication.
Alternatively you can contact us via our email addresses. In this case your personal data transmitted to us in this email will be stored for the purpose of processing your concern or for contacting you.

The legal basis for processing of the data if and to the extent that you have given your consent is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR.
The legal basis for processing of the data transmitted in the scope of transmission of an email is also Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. If the email contact is targeted at entering into a contract, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR shall be an additional legal basis for processing.
Processing of the personal data from an email sent to us serves solely to process your contact. This is also where the legitimate interest of processing of the data lies if these are processed based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Any other processing of the personal data during the dispatch of your message serves our interest to prevent misuse of our contact form and to ensure the safety of our information-technical system.
The personal data are erased as soon as the deletion is requested by you or as soon as you withdraw your consent or as soon as they are not longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection. This is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances show that the corresponding matter has been finally completed.
The additional data stored during dispatch of your message will be erased after a period of seven (7) days at the latest.
You have the option at any time to withdraw your consent to processing of the personal data. If you contact us by email or by our contact form, you may object to storage of your personal data at any time. In this case, however, the conversation cannot be continued.

The data will only be passed on to any third party to the extent that we are required to do so by law in the individual case.
