When do we process personal data?
We process the personal data which you actively transmit to us by online submission. Furthermore, we automatically process personal data based on your use of our website. Your data may therefore be processed, in particular, in the following cases:
For details, please read the following explanations.
Visit of our website
When you access our website, the company commissioned by us to operate the website processes and stores technical information about the terminal you use (operating system, screen resolution and other, non-personal features) and the browser (version, language settings), and particularly also the public IP address of the computer you use to access our website, as well as the date and time of access. The IP address is a distinct, numerical address under which your terminal sends and/or requests data to or from the internet. We and our service provider do not normally know the identity of the person behind the IP address, unless you disclose data to us during your use of the website which enable us to identify you. Users may also be identified if legal proceedings have to be taken against them (e.g. where our website is attacked) and we learn of their identity in the context of the investigations. You therefore do not normally need to worry about us being able to allocate your IP address to you personally.
Our service provider uses the processed data in non-personal form for statistical purposes, in order to enable us to understand which terminals and which settings are used to visit our website and to optimise the website where necessary. The statistics do not contain personal data. The legal basis for the production of statistics is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.
Your IP address is also used to enable you technically to access and use our website and for the detection and defence against attacks on our service provider or our website. Unfortunately, attacks with the aim of causing damage to website operators or their users do occur (e.g. denial of access, spying on data, disseminating malware (e.g. viruses) or other illicit purposes). Such attacks would compromise the proper functioning of the data centre of the company commissioned by us, the use of our website and/or its functionalities, and the security of visitors to our website. IP addresses and the time of access are processed for the purpose of defending against such attacks. Via our service provider, we use this processing to pursue our legitimate interest to secure the functioning of our website and defend against illegal attacks against us and the visitors to our website. The legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.
The stored IP data are deleted (by way of anonymisation) when they are no longer needed for the detection or defence against an attack.
Contact requests /Chat
When you send us a message through one of the contacting options offered we use the data you submit to us to process your enquiry. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest to respond to your enquiry pursuant to Article 6 (1) f) GDPR. If your enquiry relates to the conclusion of a contract with us, a further legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) b) GDPR. The data are deleted once your enquiry has been dealt with. Where we are under a statutory obligation to retain the data for longer, they will be deleted following expiry of the applicable retention period.
If you register for our email newsletter, your data will be used for the purpose of creating and sending the newsletter and for verifying the registration for our newsletter until you revoke your consent. The legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) a) GDPR. We use the platform of an external service provider for our newsletter, to which we disclose your personal data to the necessary extent within the scope of a third-party data processing agreement.
In order for newsletters to be sent to you, you must click on the confirmation link in the verification email which we will send you following registration, in order to verify your consent. When you click on the appropriate link, we process the public ID of the computer from which the link is accessed, together with the date and time of the click. We process these data to be able to prove that you have confirmed your request to receive the newsletter.
The legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this case lies in the compliance with our obligation to produce proof of the subscription you have taken out.
You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. A link for this purpose can be found at the bottom of each newsletter.
We will delete your data once you unsubscribe from the newsletter. The data which we require to prove that you consented to the sending of the newsletter will be deleted following expiry of the limitation period applicable to such obligations for produce proof.
Google Analytics allows us to create user statistics about our website in non-personalised form and to collect demographic data about visitors and their usage behaviour. Furthermore, statistics are produced which help us to understand how users find our website, in order to improve our search engine optimisation and our advertising campaigns. This processing serves our legitimate interest to improve our website and advertising campaigns. The legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.
