Collection and processing of personal information

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to that natural person, or who is an expression of that natural person’s physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

The processing of personal information may be carried out with or without the aid of computer equipment and includes the following activities: collection, recording, organization, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

We process your personal information that you provide to us through our website only to correspond with you and only for the purpose for which you provided the information to us.

Each time you access our website, we automatically and temporarily collect and store information that your browser leaves with us during your use of our website and each time you retrieve a file in a so-called log file. In detail, the following data is stored about each access/retrieval:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of access

  • Web browser and requesting domain
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Message whether the access was successful

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. The data is not passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

Advertising/market and opinion research

As part of advertising measures and market and opinion research measures to improve our products and services, we occasionally conduct customer surveys. In this context, data is processed in accordance with Article 6 (1) f GDPR to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, unless you have objected to the use of your data.

Any other evaluation of the data, except for statistical purposes and then basically in anonymous form, does not take place.

Insofar as we use service providers to perform or fulfill tasks for us, the contractual relationships are regulated in writing in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation ( EU GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act ( BDSG). This concerns the following categories of recipients:

  • IT service providers to ensure security and confidentiality

Your data protection rights

As a data subject whose data we process, you have extensive rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation. You have the right to information about your personal data processed by us, in particular about the processing purposes, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period or the criteria for determining the storage period.

Data transfer to the USA

We would like to point out that our website uses plugins and tools from providers in the USA. When using these plugins and tools, it is possible that personal data from you, such as your IP address or your surfing behavior, will be transmitted to the corresponding provider of these tools in the USA.

The USA is currently not considered a safe third country in the sense of the GDPR. U.S. authorities can demand that U.S. companies hand over personal data, against which you cannot take legal action. It can therefore not be completely ruled out that your data will be processed and permanently stored by US authorities.

Although we carefully select these third parties, we cannot assume any guarantee or liability for the accuracy or completeness of the content and data security of third-party websites. Also, this privacy policy does not apply to linked third-party websites. All information contained on this website has been checked with great care. However, we do not guarantee that the content of our own websites is correct, complete and up-to-date at all times. Substantial changes to this data protection declaration will be updated online at this point in a timely manner.
