1. Scope of Personal Data Processing
We process personal data belonging to our users only as far as this is necessary to provide a functional website and to deliver our content and services. The personal data of our users is regularly processed only after receiving the user's consent. An exception applies to cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for legitimate reasons and when processing of this data is permitted by law.
2. Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data
Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies as the legal basis for processing personal data when we obtain the consent of the data subject to collect personal data for processing.
When processing personal data that is required to fulfill a contract in which the contracting party is the data subject, Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR applies as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary to implement pre-contractual measures.
When we process personal data to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR applies as the legal basis.
Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR applies as the legal basis for processing data when this is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override this legitimate interest.
3. Deleting Data and Storage Duration
The personal data of the data subject is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storing the data has been fulfilled. In addition, data may be stored if data storage has been allowed by European or national legislators in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data may also be blocked or deleted even if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires unless a there is a need for continued storage of the data to allow the conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of a contract.
II. Provision of the Website and Creation of Log Files
1. Description and Scope of Data Processing
Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the system on the computer accessing the website.
The following data is collected:
- Information about the browser type, the version in use, the language in use
- Information about the device type and the resolution in use
- The user's operating system
- The user's internet service provider
- The user's IP address
- The user's location
- The date, time and duration of access
- The page views during the access period
- Websites from which the user's system accessed our website
- Websites accessed by the user's system via our website
The data is also stored in the log files in our system. This data is not stored alongside other personal data belonging to the user.
2. Legal Basis for Data Processing
Article 6(1)(f) forms the legal basis for temporarily storing data and log files.
3. Purpose of Data Processing
The data is stored in log files to guarantee the functionality of the website. In addition, the data helps us to optimize the website and to guarantee the security of our information systems. Analysis of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this scenario.
For these purposes, our legitimate interest in processing the data is also based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.
4. Duration of Storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected.
Storage beyond this point is possible. In this case, the user's IP addresses are deleted or pseudonymized so that it is no longer possible to use them to identify the accessing client.
5. Right to Object and to Rectification
Collecting data for the purpose of providing the website and storing this data in log files is mandatory for operating our website. For this reason, the user has no right to object.
III. Contact via Email
1. Description and Scope of Data Processing
In the case of contact via the provided e-mail address, the user's personal data transmitted by e-mail will be stored.
In this context, we do not pass on the data to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.
2. Legal Basis for Data Processing
Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for processing data when the user has provided their consent.
Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for processing data transmitted when an email is sent. Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for processing if the purpose of contact via email is to conclude a contract.
3. Purpose of Data Processing
We process personal data from the input screen solely for the purpose of processing your query. A legitimate interest is also required to process data from contact via email.
The other personal data processed when an email is sent is used to prevent forms being misused and to guarantee the security of our information systems.
4. Duration of Storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input screens of the forms and the data sent via email, this happens when the respective conversation with the user is finished. The conversation is considered finished when the circumstances make it clear that the relevant issue has been resolved in full.
5. Right to Object and to Rectification
The user has the option to withdraw his/her consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us via email, he/she can object to the storage of his/her personal data at any time. In this scenario, the conversation cannot be continued.
All personal data stored during the conversation will therefore be deleted.
IV. Rights of the Data Subject
If your personal data is processed, you are the data subject as defined by the GDPR. The GDPR grants you the following rights in relation to the controller:
1. Right of Access by the Data Subject
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her is being processed,

The data subject shall have the right to request information about whether the personal data is being transferred to a third country or to an international organization. Where personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organization, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 relating to the transfer.

Where processing has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the data subject's consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
A data subject who has obtained restriction of processing pursuant to the above shall be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.
4. Right to Erasure
a) Obligation to Erase
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.
The right to erasure shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
(1) for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9(2) as well as Article 9(3);
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) in so far as the right referred to above is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
(5) for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
5. Notification Obligation Regarding Rectification or Erasure of Personal Data or Restriction of Processing
The controller shall communicate any rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing carried out to each recipient to whom the personal data has been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
The controller shall inform the data subject about those recipients if the data subject requests it.
6. Right to Data Portability
The data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data has been provided, where:
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) or point (a) of Article 9(2) or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1); and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising his or her right to data portability, the data subject shall have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
That right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
7. Right to Object
The data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1), including profiling based on those provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
Where the data subject objects to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, the data subject may exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
8. Right to Withdraw Consent to the Data Protection Declaration
The data subject has the right to withdraw consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
9. Automated Individual Decision-Making, Including Profiling
The data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her. This shall not apply if the decision:
(1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a controller;
(2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
(3) is based on the data subject's explicit consent.
These decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(1), unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) applies and suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.
In the cases referred to in points (1) and (3), the controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, every data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78.
