(a) Automated collection of data

Each time you access our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is automatically recorded and stored:

  • Information about the browser type and the version used
  • The user’s operating system
  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access

The log files are automatically deleted after four weeks. The data mentioned are processed by us in order to guarantee a smooth connection establishment of the website as well as the comfortable use of our website. In addition, the processing of the data enables us to evaluate system stability and security.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the aforementioned purposes of data collection. We do not use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

We use cookies and analysis services on our website, which we explain in sections 4 and 5.

b) Contact form and e-mail contact

A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for electronic contact. If a user makes use of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. These dates are:

  • First name, surname and title of the user
  • Company of the user
  • E-mail of the user
  • Telephone number of the user (optional)

At the time the message is sent, the following data is also automatically transmitted and stored:

  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of the sending process

Your consent will be obtained for the processing of the data as part of the sending process and reference will be made to this data protection declaration.

Alternatively, contact can be established via the e-mail addresses provided. In this case, the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

The processing of the personal data from the contact form serves us for the treatment of the establishment of contact. Also in the case of an establishment of contact by E-Mail the necessary entitled interest lies in the treatment of the establishment of contact.

The other personal data collected automatically during the sending process serve to ensure the security of our information technology systems and to prevent misuse.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntary consent. The legal basis for processing the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation ends when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been conclusively clarified.

Personal data collected automatically during the sending process will be deleted at the latest after a period of four weeks.

c) Use of online support

If the registration serves to fulfil a contract of which the user is the contractual partner, the additional basis for processing the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process if the registration is cancelled or modified on our website. For the data collected during the registration process to fulfil a contract, this is the case when the data is no longer required for the performance of the contract. Even after fulfilment of the contract, it may be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations.

Personal data collected automatically during the sending process will be deleted at the latest after a period of four weeks.
