General information on data processing

As a matter of principle, we only process your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the provision of our offer. In addition, we only process personal data if you actively provide it to us, e.g. as part of a registration, by filling out forms, sending e-mails and inquiries or as part of ordering a newsletter or other services.

We will only use the personal data provided by you for the purpose of processing the contract and handling your inquiries. Processing and use of your personal data for other purposes, such as consulting, advertising and market research, will only take place if you have previously consented to the corresponding use or if we are entitled or obligated to the processing due to a legal provision.

 

Provision of the website and creation of log files

When you use our website, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. When you call up the website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to enable you to visit the website and to ensure stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO):

  • websites from which you have accessed our website
  • date and time of access
  • name of the internet access provider
  • browser type/version and language
  • the operating system used
  • access status/http status code
  • amount of data transferred in each case
  • device (PC, tablet PC or smartphone)
  • pages visited on our site incl. dwell time
  • the website you last visited

We evaluate this data for statistical purposes only. A personal evaluation does not take place. The temporary storage of your IP address is necessary to enable delivery of the website to your terminal device. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after 90 days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible; in this case, the IP addresses are deleted or alienated so that it is no longer possible to assign the calling client.

 

Data security

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure that the data collected in connection with the use of the services provided by us is protected against loss, incorrect modification or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously revised in line with technological developments and adapted accordingly.
