2. Legal grounds for data processing

The processing of personal data requires legal grounds that we would like to present to you hereinafter.

For the processing of personal data for which we obtain consent from the individual in question, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. This also includes steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.

Insofar as the processing of personal data necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the data controller is subject, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR.

If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest pursued by our enterprise is to conduct our business and the analysis, optimization and maintenance of safety of our online offer.

II. Logfiles, hosting

In the server statistics data are recorded that are transmitted to us within the scope of our legitimate interest in analysis and for safety reasons (so-called “logfiles”).

In particular, the following data are recorded:

  • Language and version of the browser software
  • Operating system used and its user interface
  • Referrer URL (the website visited before)
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Date and time of the server request
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (concrete page)
  • Data volume transmitted
  • Access status/HTTP status code.

In general, we are not able to assign these data to specific individuals. These data are not merged with other data sources. Moreover, after being evaluated statistically, the data will be deleted within 7 days. Data that need to be stored for evidentiary purposes are excluded from deletion until the incident in question has been clarified.

We make use of hosting services. These serve to provide infrastructure- and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services, and technical maintenance services in order to keep the operation of this online offer running.

In this context, we and/or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contractual data, usage data, meta- and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors of this online offer, on the basis of our legitimate interest in making this online offer available in an efficient and secure manner.

III. Contractually agreed processing

The personal data provided by you e.g. in the course of enquiries, such as name, address or email address, will only be used in our house to respond to your queries, to process your orders, or to give you access to specific contractual information.

IV. Making contact

Making contact

When you contact us via email or the contact form, we store your data in order to be able to respond to your queries.
As a rule, these data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless applicable data protection regulations justify such disclosure or we are obliged to do so by law. You may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. In that case, your data will be deleted immediately unless there is a legal exception regarding further processing. Otherwise, your data will be deleted once we have processed your query or the storage purpose ceases to exist and there are no other contrasting legal exceptions. You may obtain information regarding your personal data being stored at any time.

V. Cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and provide specific information to the institution setting the cookie. They serve to make the Internet offer more user-friendly and more effective and/or to make navigating our website easier for you.

Of course, you can also use our website without accepting cookies. You may also configure your browser settings according to your wishes and e.g. refuse acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies altogether, or delete cookies set earlier. Should you choose not to accept cookies, please note that in that case our offer might not work faultlessly.
To find out which function on our website sets cookies, please refer to the single functions below.

VI. Member login

Our website offers a login function. The personal data entered during login will be transmitted to the person responsible for processing. The data will be stored for the sole purpose of internal usage in our house.

During login, the user’s IP address and the date and time of the login will be stored. This serves to prevent misuse of the services. The data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless applicable data protection regulations justify such disclosure or we are obliged to do so by law.

The registration of the data is required for the provision of contents or services. Registered users have the possibility to have the stored data deleted or altered at any time. The data subject may obtain information regarding their personal data being stored at any time.

VII. Our presence on social media platforms

You can find our online presence in social networks and on platforms. By means of these presences, we want to communicate with our customers, interested parties and users who are active there, and inform them of our services and our organization.
The personal data of the active users are processed on the basis of our legitimate interests in communicating with and providing information to the users.
Provided the users have agreed to their personal data being processed within the social platform in question, their data will be processed on the basis of such consent.

If you visit one of our social media presences, both we and the operator of the social platform in question will be jointly responsible for the data processing operations initiated during this visit. On principle, you may assert your rights (of information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability, and complaint; cf. “Rights of the data subject” below) both against us and against the operator of the social platform in question.
Please note that, despite the joint responsibility, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social platform and may therefore forward the legal enquiry to the relevant platform operator, in order to better process the rights of the individuals affected. As a rule, our possibilities depend on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Our information on data storage can be found below. We have no influence on how long the social platform providers may store your data for their own purposes. Please obtain detailed information on this from the social network providers directly (e.g. from their data privacy statement, see below).

Depending on the individual social platform mentioned below, user data may also be processed outside the area of the European Union. The US-American providers that have been certified under the Privacy Shield have undertaken to comply with the EU data protection standards.

As a rule, user data are processed by the platforms for market-research and advertising purposes. For instance, usage profiles may be created based on the usage behaviour and user interests resulting therefrom. The usage profiles can then be used to place ads within and outside of the platforms that are presumed to match the individual user’s interests. For this, cookies are generally saved on the user’s computer that capture the usage behaviour and user interests. In the usage profiles, data may also be saved independent from the terminal devices used by the users. This happens in particular if the users are members of the platform in question and are logged in.
