Which data of yours are processed by us? And for what purposes?

If we have received data from you, we will only process it for the purposes for which we received or collected it.

Data processing for other purposes can only be considered if the necessary legal requirements pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 4 DSGVO have been met. In this case, we will of course comply with any information obligations pursuant to Art. 13 para. 3 DSGVO and Art. 14 para. 4 DSGVO.

What is the legal basis for this?

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle Art. 6 DSGVO, unless there are specific legal provisions. In particular, the following possibilities can be considered here:

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO)
  • Data processing for the performance of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO
  • Data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO)
  • Data processing to fulfil a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO

If personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

If we process data on the basis of a weighing of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 DSGVO.

How long is the data stored?

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

Insofar as legal storage obligations exist - e.g. in commercial law or tax law - the relevant personal data is stored for the duration of the storage obligation. After the storage obligation has expired, we check whether there is any further need for processing. If a requirement no longer exists, the data is deleted.

At the end of a calendar year, we always check the data with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the amount of data, this check is carried out with regard to specific data types or purposes of processing.

Of course, you can at any time (see below) request information about the personal data we have stored about you and, if this is not necessary, request that the data be deleted or that processing be restricted.

To which recipients will the data be forwarded?

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, if the passing on is permissible on the basis of a weighing of interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, if we are legally obliged to pass on the data or if you have given your consent in this respect.

Where is the data processed?

Your personal data will be processed by us exclusively in computer centres of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Your rights as a "data subject

You have the right to information about the personal data processed by us about your person.

In the case of a request for information which is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then demand proof from you that you are the person you claim to be.

Furthermore, you have the right to correction or deletion or to restriction of the processing to the extent to which you are legally entitled to do so.

You also have a right to data transferability and a right to object to processing within the framework of the statutory provisions.

In particular, you have a right of objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) and (2) DSGVO against the processing of your data in connection with direct advertising if this is carried out on the basis of a weighing of interests.

Right of appeal

You have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of personal data by us.

Google Web Fonts

This website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google to uniformly display fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required Web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by your computer.
Further information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq

and in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

E-Mail Contact

If you contact us by e-mail, we will store your details for processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. 
This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO.
We only store and use further personal data if you give your consent or if this is legally permissible without special consent.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete, your consent for storage revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
