II. General information on data processing when using our website

1.    Personal data is all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail address, user behavior.

2.    We process the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

3.     Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as a legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

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.

In the event that vital interests of the affected person or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

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 affected person do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

4.    The personal data of the person concerned processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, the data may be stored if the European or national legislator has provided for this in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject (e.g. statutory storage obligations). The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless it is necessary for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

5.    If we wish to use contracted service providers for individual functions of our offer or use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you below in detail about the respective processes. We will also specify the criteria for the storage period.

6.    All information that you transmit to us is stored on servers within the European Union. Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted over the Internet. However, we use technical and organisational measures to protect our website and other systems against the loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. In particular, your personal data will be transmitted by us in encrypted form. We use the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer).
