III. Description and scope of data processing

1. General information on the scope of the processing of personal data
We process personal data of our users in principle only to the extent it is necessary for making a functional web site available along with other content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is only carried out regularly with the consent of the user. Exceptions apply in cases where obtaining a previous consent is not possible for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal provisions.

2. Your visit to our web site
Each time our Internet page is called, our necessary service providers for the operation of our web site – namely our provider and our analysis software (e.g. Google Analytics and/or Matomo previously Piwik) - automatically retrieve data and information from the computer system of the calling computer, without recording personal data.
The following data are retrieved in the process: Information about the browser type and the version used, the operating system of the user, the Internet service provider of the user, the IP address of the user, date, time and duration of the access, web sites the user’s system came from to our Internet page, web sites called by the user’s system from our web site. We cannot identify the individual user from these data. The information is statistically analysed to improve the web site.

3. Contact form and e-mail contact
Where there is a contact form on our Internet page, this can be used by the user for making contact electronically. If the user utilises this possibility, the data entered into the entry mask will be sent to us and stored. The message is specifically made freely and with the consent of the user. Where the user gives information about telephone numbers or e-mail addresses, they also consent to the company contacting them using this method in order to answer the contact enquiry.

At the time of the transmission of the message, the following data will be stored in addition: the IP address of the user, data and time of the registration. To process the data, your consent will be obtained as part of the sending process and reference made to this data protection policy.

Alternatively, contact can be made using the e-mail address provided. In this case, the personal data of the user transferred with the e-mail will be stored. These data are used exclusively for the processing of the conversation.

IV. Lawful basis for processing personal data

For recording and processing personal data, the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are used as the lawful basis along with the directives and laws in German law, the Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch (BGB - German Civil Code), Handelsgesetzbuch (HGB - German Commercial Code), German tax law and customs law.

V. Purpose of the data processing

Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to enable the supply of the web site to the user’s computer. For this, the IP address of the user must be stored for the duration of the session. Our legitimate interests in the data processing also apply to these purposes in accordance with Section 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (German GDPR). The processing of personal data from the entry mask of the contact form (where present) is sufficient alone for use to process the contact request. In cases where the contact request is by e-mail, this also contains the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

VI. Data deletion and retention periods

The personal data of the affected person will be deleted or locked as soon as the purpose for the storage no longer applies. For the personal data from the entry mask of the contact form (where present) and those sent by e-mail, this is then the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be gathered from the circumstances that the affected content has been completely resolved. For recording data for making the web site available, this is the case when the respective session is closed.
Storage can continue if provided for by European or national lawmakers in EU legal regulations, laws or other provisions that the responsible person is subject to. Locking or deletion of the data is also undertaken when a storage time limit specified in the named standards has expired, unless a necessity for continued storage of the data exists for the completion or fulfilment of a contract.

VII. Possibility of objection and removal

The user has the possibility at any time to retract their consent to process their personal data. To withdraw consent, the user applies in writing to the data protection address specified by the company. All personal data stored in the course of making contact will be deleted in this case. However, the capture of the data for the provision of the web site and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the Internet page. As a result, there is no possibility to object for the user.
