1. Extent of the personal data processing
We fundamentally collect and use the personal data of our users only insofar as this is required for the provision of a functional website and of our contents and services as well as for the implementation of our business purpose. As a rule we collect and use the personal data of our users only after the user has given his/her consent. Exceptions apply in such cases where it was not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and where the processing of the data is permitted because of statutory requirements.

2. Purposes and legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain consent from the data subject for processing operations of personal data, Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In the processing of personal data required to perform a contract of which the contractual party is the data subject, Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal requirement that our company is subject to, Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the case that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and the interests do not override the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject of the first-named interest, Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage periods
The personal data of the data subject is deleted or blocked, as soon as the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies. Storage can also be effected if this was required by the European or national legislators in European Union regulations, laws or other stipulations that the person responsible is subject to. The data is also blocked or deleted if a statutory storage period prescribed by the cited standards expires, unless there is a need for continued data storage for the purposes of a conclusion or performance of a contract.


1. Description and extent of data collection

Whenever our internet site is visited, our system automatically records data and information from the computer system of the visiting computer. The following data is collected:

• Information about the browser type and version used
• The operating system and the interface of the user
• The internet server provider of the user
• The IP address of the use
• Date and time of the visit
• Websites, from which the system of the user accessed our internet site
• Websites that are visited by the system of the user via our website

In that process only pseudonymized IP addresses are stored by the system. At the webserver level, this is done by default that in the logfile instead of the actual IP address of the visitor e.g. an IP address 123.123.123.XXX is stored, where XXX is a random value between 1 and 254. The production of a personal reference is thus no longer possible. We use this protocol data without assignment to your person or other profiling for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of our online offer, but also for the anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the scope and nature the use of our website and services. This information enables us to provide personalized and location-based content, analyze traffic, troubleshoot and improve our services. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence1 lit. f GDPR.

We reserve the right to check the protocol data retrospectively if, on the basis of concrete evidence, the legitimate suspicion of unlawful use exists. We store IP addresses in the logfiles for a limited period if necessary for security purposes or for the provision of services or the billing of a service, eg. if you use one of our offers. After termination of the order process or after receipt of payment, we will delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes.

2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the logfiles is Art. 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary so as to enable delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this the IP address of the user remains stored for the duration of the session.
Storage in logfiles is required in order to assure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves to optimise the website and to assure the security of our IT systems. In particular our website and our other IT system help us to adapt to the browser, operating system and end devices used. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this connection. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
4. Duration of the storage
In the case of storage of data in logfiles, this is the case after seven days at the latest.

5. Right to object and removal
The recording of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in logfiles is absolutely essential for the operation of the internet site. As a consequence the user has no possibility to object to this.

The double opt-in procedure thus protects against misuse of recipient addresses.

In addition, we use your e-mail address, which we received in the course of the sale of a product or service, for the electronic transmission of advertising for our own products or services, which are similar to those that you have already purchased from us, unless you have objected to this use. The provision of the email address is required for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to make this available means that no contract can be concluded.

The contact details for exercising the objection can be found in the imprint. You can also use the link provided in the promotional email.

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when we send you the newsletter. For this evaluation the emails sent contain so-called web beacons, also called tracking pixels.
