Thank you for visiting our website. The protection and security of your personal information when using our website is very important to us. We would therefore like to inform you at this point about your personal data that we collect when you visit our website and for what purposes it is used.

What is at issue?

This privacy statement meets statutory requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. For example, this includes information such as your name, your age, your address, your telephone number, your date of birth, your email address, your IP address or user behaviour when visiting a website. Information through which we cannot (or only through a disproportionate effort) establish a relationship to you personally (e.g. through anonymisation) is not personal data. Processing of personal data (e.g. collection, querying, use, storage or transmission) requires a legal basis and a defined purpose in every case.

Stored personal data is deleted as soon as the purpose of processing has been achieved and there are no legal reasons for further retention of the data. We shall inform you about specific storage periods and criteria for storage in individual processing operations. Regardless of this, we store your personal data in individual cases to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and if statutory retention obligations exist.

Who receives my data?

We only forward your personal data that we process on our website to third parties if this is necessary to fulfil particular purposes and, in an individual case, is covered by a legal basis (e.g. consent or protection of legitimate interests). In addition, we forward personal data to third parties in individual cases if this serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. Examples of possible recipients in this case may be law enforcement authorities, lawyers or solicitors, auditors, courts, etc.

Insofar as we use service providers to operate our website, and these process personal data on our behalf in accordance with Article 28 of the GDPR, these service providers may be recipients of your personal data. Further information on the use of processors and web services can be found in the overview of individual processing operations.

Do you use cookies?

Cookies are small text files that we transmit to the browser of your device and are stored there when you visit our website. As an alternative to the use of cookies, information can also be stored in the local storage of your browser. Some functions of our website cannot be provided without the use of cookies or local storage (technically necessary cookies). However, other cookies enable us to realise various analyses so that, for example, we can recognise the browser you are using when you visit our website again and transmit various information to us (non-essential cookies). Among other things, cookies help us to make our Internet offer more user-friendly and effective for you by, for example, tracking your use of our website and determining your preferred settings (e.g. country and language settings). If third parties process information via cookies, they collect the information directly through your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your device. They cannot run programs and do not contain viruses.

We provide information about the respective services for which we use cookies in individual processing operations. Detailed information about the cookies used can be found in the cookie settings or in the consent manager of this website.

What rights do I have?

Under the conditions of the statutory provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you, as the data subject, have the following rights:

  • Information pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR on stored data relating to your person in the form of meaningful information on the details of processing and a copy of your data;
  • Rectification pursuant to Art. 16 GDPR to request the immediate correction of incorrect or incomplete personal data relating to you stored by us;
  • Erasure pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR of data stored by us, insofar as processing is not necessary for exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, to meet a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • Restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR, insofar as the correctness of the data is disputed by you, processing is unlawful, we no longer require the data and you reject its erasure because you require it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or you have registered an objection against processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR.
  • Data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, insofar as you have provided us with personal data in the context of consent granted pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a. GDPR or on the basis of an agreement pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b. GDPR, and this has been processed by us with the aid of an automated method. You shall receive your data in a structured, commonplace and machine-readable format, or we shall transmit the data directly to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible.
  • Objection pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR to the processing of your personal data, insofar as this occurs on the basis of Art. 6 (1) e., f. GDPR and reasons exist for this arising from your personal situation, or the objection is against direct marketing. The right to object does not exist if there are compelling legitimate grounds worthy of protection for processing which override your interests, or if processing is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Insofar as the right to object in the case of individual processing procedures does not exist, this is indicated here.
  • Revocation pursuant to Art. 7 (3) GDPR of the consent you have granted with effect for the future.
  • Lodging of a complaint pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR with a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that processing of your personal data is in breach of the GDPR. You can generally address a supervisory authority in this respect in your usual place of abode, your place of work or the location of our office.

How is my data processed in detail?

You will find information below on individual processing procedures, the scope and purpose of data processing, the legal basis, the obligation to provide your data and the respective storage duration. An automated decision in an individual case, including profiling, does not occur.

Provision of the website

Type and scope of processing

In the event of accessing and use of our website, we collect the personal data that your browser transmits automatically to our server. The following information is stored temporarily in a so-called log file:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of accessing
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Website from which accessing occurs (referrer URL)
  • Browser used and, where applicable, the operating system of your computer and the name of your access provider

[Our website is not hosted by us, but by a service provider that, for this purpose, processes the previously mentioned data on our behalf pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.]

Purpose and legal basis

Processing occurs to protect our predominantly legitimate interest in showing our website and ensure security and stability on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f. GDPR. The collection of data and its storage in log files is essential for operation of the website. A right to object to processing does not exist due to the exception pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR. Insofar as further storage of the log files is required by law, processing occurs on the basis of Art. 6 (1) c. GDPR. There is no contractual or statutory obligation to provide the data, but accessing of our website is technically impossible if the data is not provided.

Storage duration

The aforementioned data is stored for the duration the website is displayed [and also for an additional period of maximum [7 days] for technical reasons].

Contact form

Type and scope of processing

We offer you the option to contact us using a form provided on our website. The information collected through the mandatory fields is necessary for processing of the inquiry. Moreover, you can also voluntarily provide additional information which, in your opinion, is necessary for processing the contact inquiry.

Your personal data is not forwarded to third parties when the contact form is used.

Purpose and legal basis

Processing of your data through use of our contact form occurs for the purpose of communication and processing of your inquiry on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO. Insofar as your inquiry refers to an existing contractual relationship with us, processing occurs for the purpose of contractual fulfilment based on Art. 6 (1) b GDPR. There is no contractual or statutory obligation to provide the data, but processing of your inquiry is impossible if the information in the mandatory fields is not provided. Contact us by other means if you do not wish to provide this data.

Storage duration

Insofar as you use the contact form on the basis of your consent, we store the data collected in each inquiry for a duration of three years beginning with addressing of your inquiry or until revocation of your consent.

[If you use the contact form in the context of a contractual relationship, we store the data collected for the duration of [three years] as of the end of the contractual relationship.]

Google Analytics

Type and scope of processing

We use Google Analytics from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland as an analytical service for statistical evaluation of our online offer. This encompasses aspects such as the number of times our online offer is accessed, subpages visited and the length of time visitors stay.

Google Analytics uses cookies and other browser technologies to evaluate user behaviour and recognise users when they visit again.

This information is also used to compile reports on website activity.

Purpose and legal basis

Use of Google Analytics occurs on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a. GDPR and Section 25 (1) of the German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (§ 25 Abs. 1 TTDSG).

We intend to transmit personal data to third countries outside the European Economic Area, particularly the United States. Data transmission to the United States occurs pursuant to Art. 45 (1) GDPR on the basis of the adequacy decision of the European Commission. US companies involved and/or their US subcontractors are certified pursuant to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (EU-US DPF).

In cases in which the adequacy decision of the European Commission exists (including US companies not certified according to the EU-US DPF), we have agreed other suitable guarantees with recipients of data that conform to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. Unless otherwise indicated, these are standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission pursuant to the Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021. A copy of these standard contractual clauses can be viewed at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/HTML/?uri=CELEX:32021D0914&from=DE.

In addition, we obtain your consent before any such third country transfer pursuant to Art. 49 (1) Clause 1 a. GDPR which you grant through consent in the consent manager (or other forms, registrations, etc.). We would like to point out that, in the event of third country transfers, there can be unknown risks in the details (e.g. data processing by the security authorities of the third country, as we are unaware of the exact extent of this and its consequences for you, cannot influence it and, under certain circumstances, you cannot obtain any information on this).

Storage duration

We have no influence on the specific storage duration of the processed data, as this is determined by Google Ireland Limited. Further information can be found in the privacy statement for Google Analytics: https://policies.google.com/privacy.
