This data protection declaration applies exclusively to the use of the websites offered by us. It does not apply to the websites of other service providers to which we merely refer via a link.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as a legal basis in the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

We treat the data provided by you as strictly confidential. We will not pass on any personal data without your express consent, unless we are legally obliged to do so.

We would like to point out that Internet-based data transmission has security gaps. Complete protection against access by third parties cannot be guaranteed.

Data erasure and storage duration

In addition, the data may be stored if the European or national legislator has provided for this in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject.

Description and scope of data processing

Registration
On our website, we offer users the opportunity to register by providing personal data. The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and stored. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

The following data is collected as part of the registration process:
Salutation, first name, surname, address, telephone number, e-mail address, login data.

At the time of registration, you also save the public IP address and the date and time of your registration. The purpose of storing this data is to protect your e-mail address from access and misuse by third parties. The legal basis for the processing of the data is the user's consent to the processing of the data relating to him/her if he/she has given his/her consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

You will then receive a confirmation e-mail which will be used to check the authenticity of your e-mail.

The purpose of the registration is the provision of fixed contents and services offered on our website. As a user you have the possibility to cancel the registration at any time. You can have the data stored about you changed at any time.

Contact formular and e-mail contact
On our website there are contact forms which can be used for electronic contact. If a user makes use of this possibility, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. These data are:
Salutation, first name, surname, company, address, country, telephone number and e-mail address.

At the time of sending the message, after consent, your data will be stored and transmitted to us. These are among other things:
- The data entered by you.
- The official IP address of the computer from which you entered the data.
- Date and time of storage.

Alternatively, it is also possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user's data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data are used exclusively for the processing of the establishment of contact.

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the establishment of contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been conclusively clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.
