Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find detailed information on how we handle your data.

 

1. Data access and Hosting

You can visit our website without providing any personal data. Each time a website is accessed, the web server merely automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. This access data is analysed exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of our website and improve our offer. This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which predominate in the context of a weighing of interests, in the correct presentation of our offer by Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. All-access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the site.

 

1.1 Hosting

The services for hosting and displaying the website are partly provided by our service providers as part of processing on our behalf. Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, all access data and all data collected in the forms provided on this website will be processed on their servers. If you have any questions about our service providers and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this privacy policy. Our service providers are based in the USA. There is no adequacy decision by the European Commission for the USA. Our cooperation with them is based on standard data protection clauses of the European Commission.

 

1.2 Content Delivery Network

We use a so-called Content Delivery Network („CDN“) for some of our offers to shorten loading times. With this service, content, e.g. large media files, is delivered via regionally distributed servers of external CDN service providers. Access data is therefore processed on the servers of the service providers. Our service providers work for us within the framework of order processing. If you have any questions about our service providers and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this privacy policy. Our service providers are based in the USA. There is no adequacy decision by the European Commission for the USA. Our cooperation with them is based on standard data protection clauses of the European Commission.

 

2. Data processing for contacting and customer communication

 

Contacting

We collect personal data if you provide it to us voluntarily when you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are labelled as such, as in these cases we need the data to process your contact and you cannot send the contact without providing it. Which data collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process your enquiry in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s.1 lit. b DSGVO.

Once your customer enquiry has been fully processed, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law by Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c DSGVO, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data per Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. a DSGVO or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.
