Privacy Policy

As 27.07.2021

We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. Use of the website is generally possible without providing any personal data. If a data subject wishes to use our company's special services via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations that apply to us. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

Cookies / SessionStorage / LocalStorage

Some of the websites use so-called cookies, LocalStorage and SessionStorage. This serves to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Local Storage and SessionStorage is a technology that your browser uses to store data on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an internet browser. You can prevent the use of cookies, LocalStorage and SessionStorage by making the appropriate settings in your browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual's browser from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, users of this website can be provided with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the sense of the user. Cookies allow us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the users of a website that uses cookies do not need to reenter their credentials each time they visit the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

Collection of general data and information

The website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, no conclusions are drawn about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by us on the one hand and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. The personal data to be sent to the controller is derived from the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject shall be collected and stored solely for internal use by the controller and for his own purposes. The controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, such as a parcel service, who also uses the personal data only for internal use attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way the misuse of our services can be prevented, and these data make it possible, if necessary, to clarify past offenses. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. A disclosure of these data to third parties is not, unless there is a legal obligation to pass on or the disclosure of law enforcement serves.

By registering the data subject voluntarily providing personal data, the data controller serves to provide the data subject with content or services that, due to the nature of the case, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data given at registration at any time or to delete it completely from the database of the data controller.

The controller shall, at any time upon request, provide information to each data subject as to which personal data about the data subject is stored. Furthermore, the data controller corrects or deletes personal data at the request or reference of the data subject, insofar as this does not conflict with any statutory storage requirements. All data subjects of the controller are available to the data subject as a contact person in this context.

Contact via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website contains information that enables fast electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such data voluntarily transmitted from a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

Comments in the blog on the website

We offer users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal, usually publicly accessible, on which a website, in which one or more people, who are called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If an affected person leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, not only the comments left by the person concerned, but also information on the time of the commentary input and the username (pseudonym) chosen by the person concerned are saved and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address is made for security reasons and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal contents by submitting a comment. The storage of such personal data is therefore in the own interest of the controller, so that he could exculpate in case of infringement. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties, unless such disclosure is not required by law or the legal defense of the controller.

Gravatar

The Gravatar Service from Auttomatic is used for comments. Gravatar compares your email address and - if you are registered there - displays your avatar picture next to the comment. If you are not registered, no picture will be displayed. It should be noted that all registered WordPress users are also automatically registered with Gravatar.

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

    If an affected person wishes to exercise this right of rectification, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller.

  • d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directives and Regulators to require the controller to immediately delete the personal data concerning him, provided that one of the following reasons is satisfied and the processing is not required:

    • The personal data has been collected for such purposes or otherwise processed for which they are no longer necessary.
    • The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based, in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (2 (a) of the GDPR), and lacks an alternative legal basis for processing.

    If the personal data were made public and our company is responsible as a responsible person according to Art. 17 Para. 1 GDPR to delete the personal data, we take appropriate measures, also technical, to take account of the available technology and implementation costs to inform the data processing officers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or copies or replications of these personal data from these other data controllers, unless the processing is required. The employee will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

  • e) Right to restriction of processing

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions applies:

    • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time that enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.

    In addition, in exercising their right to data portability under Article 20 (1 DS-GVO), the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data are transmitted directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and if so this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others.

    The data subject can contact us at any time to assert the right to data portability.

    In the event of an objection, we will no longer process the personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims ,

    If we process personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected to such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

    In addition, the person concerned has the right to object, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to them, which is carried out for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 (1) GDPR unless such processing is necessary to perform a task in the public interest.

The data subject is also free to exercise their right to object in connection with the use of information society services, regardless of Directive 2002/58 / EC, using automated procedures that use technical specifications.

  • h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

    Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European directives and regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on it or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it; if the decision (1) is not required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

    If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible or (2) it is made with the express consent of the data subject, we take the appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests to protect the data subject, which includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state their own position and to contest the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to claim automated decision-making rights, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time.

  • i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

    If the data subject wishes to assert their right to withdraw consent, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller.

Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 Ilit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art 6 Ilit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Ilit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Processing would then be based on Art. 6 Ilit. d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 Ilit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

Authorized interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

The processing of personal data is based on Article 6 Ilit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information about the contracting party).
Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed.
Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.

Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
