Storage duration

We generally delete your personal data when it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
If we asked for your consent and you granted it, we will delete your personal data in case you withdraw your consent and there is no other legal basis for any processing.
We will delete your personal data if you object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing or if you object to the processing for the purposes of direct marketing or related profiling.
If deletion is not possible because processing is still necessary to comply with a legal obligation (statutory retention periods, etc.) to which we are subject, or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, we will restrict the processing of your personal data.
Further information on the storage period can also be found in the following sections.

Your rights

You have the following rights with regard to your personal data:
– Right to information
– Right to correction
– Right to deletion
– Right to restriction of processing
– Right to object to processing
– Right to data portability
For reasons arising from your particular situation, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to this processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. We will then no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
You have the right to revoke consent to the processing of your personal data at any time if you have given us such consent. The revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of revocation.
You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data.

Provision of your personal data

The provision of your personal data is generally not required by law or contract and is not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. In principle, you are not obliged to provide your personal data. If this should nevertheless be the case, we will inform you in this regard separately when collecting your personal data (for example, by marking the mandatory fields in input forms).
Failure to provide your personal data regularly results in us not processing your personal data for one of the purposes described below and you not being able to take advantage of an offer related to the respective processing (example: without providing your email address, you will not receive our newsletter).

Web hosting

We use external services for web hosting. These services may have access to personal data that is processed in the context of using our online offer.

Web server log files

We process your personal data in order to be able to display our online offer to you and to guarantee the stability and security of our online offer. In doing so, information (for example, requested element, accessed URL, operating system, date and time of the request, browser type and the version used, IP address, protocol used, amount of data transferred, user agent, referrer URL, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and/or HTTP status code) is stored in so-called log files (access log, error log, etc.).
If we asked for your consent and you granted it, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. If we have not asked for your consent, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this case is the proper display of our online offer and ensuring the stability and security of our online offer.

Security

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of your personal data and other confidential content, we use encryption on our domain. You can recognise this by the character string “https://” in the browser line and by the lock symbol.

Contact

If you contact us, we will process your personal data in order to process your contact.
If we asked for your consent and you granted it, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. If we have not asked for your consent, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this case is the processing of your contact. If the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures based on your request, the legal basis for the processing is also Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

Newsletter

If we asked for your consent and you granted it, we will process your email address in order to carry out email marketing and, where applicable, other personal data in order to address you personally in the process. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The contents of the email marketing are clearly described when obtaining your consent. Furthermore, the email marketing contains information about us, our goods and services.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to prevent possible misuse of your personal data. For this purpose, after obtaining your email address, we will send you an email to the email address you have provided in which we ask you to confirm that you actually wish to receive email marketing. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this case is the legally compliant implementation of email marketing.
We log the time you gave your consent and the time of your confirmation as well as your IP address and the content of your declaration of consent in order to be able to prove that your consent was obtained in accordance with the law. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this case is the legally compliant implementation of email marketing.
We use external services for email marketing. For further information on the services used, the scope of data processing and the technologies and procedures involved in the use of the respective services, as well as whether profiling takes place in the use of the respective services and, where applicable, information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for you, please refer to the further information on the services we use at the end of this section and the links provided there.

You can revoke your consent at any time. The revocation of your consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of revocation. To revoke your consent, you can use the link provided for this purpose in the emails or contact us via the contact details given above.
If you have revoked your consent, we reserve the right to process your personal data in a so-called blacklist/block list in order to be able to ensure that no further email marketing takes place in connection with this personal data in the future. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this case is the avoidance of unwanted email marketing.
We process your personal data in the context of tracking or success assessments in order to measure the coverage of our email marketing, to design it based on needs and interests and thus optimise our email marketing. This may also involve profiling (for the purposes of advertising, personalised information, etc.). Profiling may also take place across services and devices. If we asked for your consent and you granted it, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. If we have not asked for your consent, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this case lies in the optimisation of our email marketing. A separate revocation of your consent or objection with regard to tracking or performance assessments is unfortunately not possible. You must use the preceding options to withdraw your consent or object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of email marketing altogether.
