(hereinafter “we” and “us”) as the controller of the Website is responsible for the personal data of users of this Website (hereinafter “you”) for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter “GDPR”).

The protection of your privacy is a matter of great importance to us. We collect, process and use your personal data in compliance with the contents of this Data Protection Statement and applicable data protection regulations.

“Personal data” per the GDPR is all information related to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). A natural person is considered identifiable when that person can be directly or indirectly identified, specifically, when that person can be associated with an identifier like a name, identifying number, location data, online identification or with one or more special characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of said natural person. Put differently, personal data about you is information related to you or that says something personal about you and can be associated with you, either alone or in combination with other information.

In this Data Protection Statement we provide detailed information on the personal data about that we gather, process and use when you visit our Website. We ask that you therefore read this Statement with care.

1. Processing and purpose of use of personal data

We process your personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website. Beyond that we process only data that you have provided to us as part of making contact.

1.1 Access to the website and usage data

This website is hosted by 1&1.

When you visit our web pages, so-called usage data is temporarily evaluated on our web server for statistical purposes as a protocol in order to improve the quality of our web pages. This data set consists of:

  • the name and address of the requested content,
  • the date and time of the request,
  • the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (content transferred, content not found),
  • the description of the web browser and operating system used,
  • the referral link, which indicates the page from which you came to ours,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened so that a personal reference can no longer be established.

The aforementioned log data is only evaluated anonymously. Furthermore, we do not store IP addresses.

1.2 Contact form and e-mail contact

Our Website has a contact form that can be used to contact us. If you do so, the data you enter in the entry fields is transmitted to and stored by us. In order for us to answer you, we need at least a valid e-mail address. You can voluntarily give all other information. The processing of personal data from the submission form serves us solely to process the contact.

The legal basis for the data processing of the mandatory information is fundamentally Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

By submitting the contact form you also agree to a processing of the data voluntarily provided in the form. The legal basis for this data processing is therefore art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR. If the purpose of the contact is to establish a contract, the legal basis for the processing is art. 6 par. 1 lit. b GDPR.

Alternatively, you can contact us at the e-mail address provided. In this case we store your personal data sent with the e-mail. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.

No data will be provided to third parties in this context. The data will be used only for processing the conversation.

The data is erased when it is no longer needed for the purpose it was collected for. For personal data from the entry mask of the contact form, and for personal data sent by e-mail, this the case when the conversation with you is ended. The conversation is ended when circumstances indicate that the respective issues have been dealt with.

Personal data additionally collected during transmission is erased no later than seven days thereafter.

Insofar as your data transmitted via the contact form is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you can object to the processing at any time. In addition, you can revoke your consent to the processing of voluntary data at any time. To do so, please contact the e-mail address stated in the imprint. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.

1.3 Newsletter registration and mailing

You can order a newsletter on our website with recording of activation and click-through rates. Please note that we require certain data (at least your e-mail address) to register for the newsletter.

The newsletter will only be sent if you have given us your explicit permission. After you have placed an order on our websites, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided (so-called double opt-in). You can recall your consent at any time. You can easily cancel your registration, for example, by clicking on the unsubscribe link in each newsletter.

Within the scope of the newsletter registration, we store further information in addition to the data already mentioned, insofar as this is necessary for us to be able to prove that you have ordered our newsletter. This may include the storage of the full IP address at the time of the order or the confirmation of the newsletter, as well as a copy of the confirmation email sent by us. The corresponding data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO and is done in the interest of being able to account for the legality of the newsletter mailing.

In addition, we record your activation and click-through rates by default from the service provider. By ordering the newsletter, you agree to this data processing. We do not carry out extended recipient statistics or further tracking. If you wish to revoke your consent, please use the unsubscribe link provided in each newsletter.

In the following, we will name the contract processors with whom we work, insofar as we have not already done so in the above text of the data protection declaration.
