Welcome to our website. Protection of your data is very important to us. Therefore, we would like to show you in the following how we process your personal data.


Data categories; Data sources

We always process the personal data you provide us within the scope of an enquiry, pre-contractual legal relationship or a contractual relationship. In individual cases and where required within the scope of performance of the contract, we also process personal data that has been legally obtained from public sources (e.g. commercial register, debtors‘ lists, internet) or legally provided to us by a third party (e.g. credit agencies).

This can involve personal data (name, date of birth, legally authorised representative), address data (address, email address, contact partner), financial data (name of account holder, IBAN, BIC), contract data (contract term, accrued benefits, cancellations), communication data (correspondence, email traffic), advertising data (advertising letters) as well as other, comparable categories of personal data.


General processing of visitor data

Our website can generally be used without disclosing personal data.

We would, however, like to point out that access data will also be collected in this case and stored in the server log files. This particularly involves the following data:

· Browser type / browser version

· Operating system

· The website, from which you are visiting us

· Date and time of your visit

· Your IP address.

We evaluate this information only in an anonymous form to defend against attacks and to improve our services (processing of personal data within the scope of balancing of interests in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR) and then erase it. The data cannot be traced to you personally and are also not merged with other data.

However, if there is concrete evidence of illegal use we reserve the right to review this data at a later date.


Contact

If you contact us by email or via a form offered, we will process personal data provided by you for answering your enquiry. We erase the data after we have completed processing your enquiry, provided there is no contractual or statutory retention obligation.


Processing personal data after consent has been given (Article 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR)

In individual cases we seek your consent for certain explicitly specified purposes related to data collection (e.g. enquiry using a contact form, opening a customer account, ordering a newsletter).

Data is processed only if you give us your consent. It is possible that your enquiry cannot be processed without your consent and must therefore depend on it being given. The data is processed only for the explicitly stated purposes.

You have the right to withdraw your given consent at any time with effect for the future. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Processing personal data for the performance of a contract (Article (6) (1) (b) GDPR)

If a contract is made with use, we will use personal data insofar as this is required for performance of a contract and completing pre-contractual measures. The purpose of the data processing depends on the specific contents of the contract, which you can find in the contract documents and our general terms and conditions.

Processing personal data within the scope of a balancing of interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR)

We process personal data in accordance with a balancing of interests, insofar as this is required for protecting our interests or the interests of a third party.

Examples of such purposes are:

Ensuring the IT security and integrity of our systems

Obligation to provide data

Specific personal data are required for execution of a contractual relationship. If you do not provide us with the data highlighted as compulsory, conclusion of a contract will generally not be possible.


Use of cookies

Cookies may be used on different pages during your visit to our website. Cookies are text files that are downloaded onto your computer and ensure that the visit to our website runs smoothly.

We use cookies based on Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR, whereby we use them to track legitimate interests:

· Improvement and needs-based design of our website

Cookies are used within the scope of so-called usage profiles. A pseudonym is assigned to you under which usage data is stored. Your IP address is only stored in abbreviated form, so that personal assignment of the usage profile is no longer possible.

The majority of cookies used by us are erased again from your computer after the browser is closed (session cookies). Other types of cookies can remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your computer again using the created usage profile when you visit our website (persistent cookies).

Privacy statement for the use of ajax.googleapis.com

The website uses the Javascript library jQuery. We load this library via the CDN (content delivery network) of Google, provided the library has not been already loaded due to a visit on another website and your browser can therefore access the copy stored in the cache. If your browser downloads the library, the IP address and website etc. from which the call was made are transmitted from your browser to Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). We use the service for increasing the speed and enhancing the convenience of our website.


Transfer of data

We pass data on to other third parties, if and to the extent we have assigned tasks for them to perform. Data is only transferred if this is required for fulfilling the delegated tasks.

Service providers can be assigned tasks in the following areas for example:

· Website hosting

· Email hosting

Data is always transferred within the scope of a contract for order processing, which ensures compliance with all data protection requirements.

Otherwise, data is only transferred within the scope of cases prescribed by law, for example with a legal obligation to provide information to law enforcement agencies.


Data retention period

Your personal data are erased by us without undue delay once the data are no longer required for meeting contractual and legal obligations.

Personal data are stored at least as long as required for meeting contractual obligations and exercising contractual rights. This period can extend beyond the actual term of the contract period, as the data could still be relevant within the period of limitation even after the end of the contract. Furthermore, data can only be erased after any retention periods of fiscal and commercial law have expired.


The criteria for the retention period of cookies can be found in the respective section.
