Personal data is information about your identity. This includes information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address. It is not necessary for you to disclose personal data in order to use our website. In certain cases, however, we need your name and address as well as other information so that we can provide the requested services. This concerns, for example, the sending of information material or the answering of individual questions. Furthermore, we only store and process data that you provide us voluntarily and, if applicable, data that we collect automatically when you visit our Internet pages (e.g. your IP address and the names of the pages you call up, the browser you use and your operating system, date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files). If you make use of our services, as a rule only such data is collected as we need to provide the services. If we ask you for further data, this is voluntary information. The processing of personal data is carried out exclusively to provide the requested service and to protect our own legitimate business interests.
In general, we use the personal data you provide to answer your inquiries, process your orders or provide you with access to specific information or offers. In order to maintain customer relations, it may also be necessary for us or a service company commissioned by us to use this personal data to inform you about product offers or to conduct online surveys in order to better meet the tasks and requirements of our customers. Of course, we will respect your wishes if you do not wish to provide us with your personal data to support our customer relationship (especially for direct marketing or market research purposes). We will neither sell your personal data to third parties nor market it in any other way.
We will collect, process and use the personal data you provide online only for the purposes communicated to you. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. The collection of personal data and its transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information will only take place within the framework of the relevant laws or if we are obliged to do so by a court decision. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us are obliged by us to maintain secrecy and to comply with all relevant data protection regulations.
When you use our Internet pages, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser used on your terminal device. This information is temporarily stored in so-called log files. The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:
We use these log files to detect, eliminate or prevent possible disturbances or attacks on our website. At the latest after the data stored in the log files will be deleted or made anonymous. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO (balancing of interests, based on our legitimate interest in ensuring the technical functionality of our website).
If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. Your data will also be treated confidentially and will not be passed on to third parties, but will only be used to process your enquiry. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO in conjunction with your consent given when you send the contact form. You can revoke this consent at any time. Revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation. There is no link to the above-mentioned access data in log files. After the matter has been processed by us, the data will first be stored in case of any queries. Deletion of the data can be requested at any time, otherwise the data will be deleted after the matter has been completely settled. The statutory retention period of six years for commercial and business correspondence remains unaffected in each case, Art. 6 para. 1 c) DSGVO.
Persons under the age of 1
8 years should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and young people, do not collect such data and do not pass it on to third parties. Parents or guardians are responsible for protecting the privacy of their children. Parents and guardians are requested to talk to their children about the safe and responsible use of their personal data on the Internet.
We have taken technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and all persons involved in data processing are obliged to comply with the laws relevant to data protection and to handle personal data confidentially. If personal data is collected and processed, the information is transmitted in encrypted form to prevent misuse of the data by third parties. Our security measures are continuously revised in line with technological developments.
