What is it about?

This privacy statement fulfils the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, IP address or user behaviour when visiting a website. Information for which we cannot (or can only with disproportionate effort) establish a link to your person, e.g. through anonymisation, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose.

Stored personal data are deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no legitimate grounds for further storage of the data. We inform you about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage in the individual processing operations. Irrespective of this, we store your personal data in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and if there are statutory retention obligations.

Who receives my data?

We only pass on your personal data that we process on our website to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes and is covered by the legal basis in the individual case (e.g. consent or safeguarding legitimate interests). In addition, we disclose personal data to third parties in individual cases if this serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Possible recipients may then be, for example, law enforcement agencies, lawyers, auditors, courts, etc.

Insofar as we use service providers for the operation of our website who process personal data on our behalf within the scope of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO, they may be recipients of your personal data. For more information on the use of processors and web services, please refer to the overview of individual processing operations.

Do you use cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent by us to the browser of your end device when you visit our website and are stored there. As an alternative to the use of cookies, information can also be stored in the local storage of your browser. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies or local storage (technically necessary cookies). Other cookies, however, enable us to carry out various analyses, so that we are able, for example, to recognise the browser you are using when you visit our website again and to transmit various information to us (non-essential cookies). With the help of cookies, we can, among other things, make our website more user-friendly and effective for you, for example by tracking your use of our website and determining your preferred settings (e.g. country and language settings). If third parties process information via cookies, they collect the information directly via your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device. They cannot execute programs or contain viruses.

We provide information about the respective services for which we use cookies in the individual processing procedures. You can find detailed information on the cookies used in the cookie settings or in the Consent Manager of this website.

What rights do I have?

Under the conditions of the statutory provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the following rights as a data subject:

* Information pursuant to Art. 15 DSGVO about the data stored about you in the form of meaningful information about the details of the processing as well as a copy of your data;

* Correction according to Art. 16 DSGVO of incorrect or incomplete data stored by us;

* Erasure pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO of the data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;

* Restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed, the processing is unlawful, we no longer need the data and you object to their erasure because you need them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO.

* Data portability pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, insofar as you have provided us with personal data within the scope of consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or on the basis of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and these have been processed by us with the aid of automated procedures. You will receive your data in a structured, common and machine-readable format or we will transfer the data directly to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible.

* You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 21 of the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO), insofar as this is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e, f DSGVO and there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. The right to object does not exist if overriding compelling legitimate grounds for the processing can be demonstrated or the processing is carried out for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Where the right to object does not exist for individual processing operations, this is indicated there.

* Revocation pursuant to Art. 7 (3) DSGVO of your granted consent with effect for the future.

* Complaint pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR to a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence, your place of work or our company headquarters.

 

How is my data processed in detail?

In the following, we inform you about the individual processing operations, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis, the obligation to provide your data and the respective storage period. An automated decision in individual cases, including profiling, does not take place.

Provision of the website

Type and scope of processing

When you call up and use our website, we collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server. The following information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file:

 

* IP address of the requesting computer

* Date and time of access

* Name and URL of the file accessed

* Website from which the access is made (referrer URL)

* The browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer, as well as the name of your access provider.

Our website is not hosted by ourselves, but by a service provider who processes the aforementioned data on our behalf in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO. Address 1&1 IONOS SE:
Germany:
1&1 IONOS SE.
Elgendorfer Str. 57
56410 Montabaur

Purpose and legal basis

The processing is carried out to protect our overriding legitimate interest in displaying our website and guaranteeing security and stability on the basis of Art. 6 para. lit. f DSGVO. The collection of data and storage in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. There is no right to object to the processing due to the exception under Art. 21 (1) DSGVO. Insofar as the further storage of log files is required by law, the processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide the data, however, calling up our website is not technically possible without providing the data.

Storage period

The aforementioned data is stored for the duration of the website display and, for technical reasons, for a maximum of 8 weeks beyond that.

 

Contact form

Type and scope of processing

On our website, we offer you to contact us via a provided form. The information collected via mandatory fields is necessary to process the request. Furthermore, you can voluntarily provide additional information that you consider necessary for processing the contact request.

When using the contact form, your personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

Purpose and legal basis

The processing of your data through the use of our contact form is carried out for the purpose of communication and processing of your enquiry on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Insofar as your enquiry relates to an existing contractual relationship with us, the processing is carried out for the purpose of fulfilling the contract on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data, but the processing of your request is not possible without the provision of the information of the mandatory fields. If you do not wish to provide this data, please contact us by other means.

Storage period

Insofar as you use the contact form on the basis of your consent, we store the data collected for each enquiry for a period of eight weeks, starting with the completion of your enquiry or until you revoke your consent.

If you use the contact form in the context of a contractual relationship, we store the data collected for each enquiry for a period of three years from the end of the contractual relationship.

 

Newsletter

Type and scope of processing

If you register on our website to receive our newsletter, we collect your e-mail address and name and store this information together with the date of registration and your IP address. You will then receive an e-mail in which you must confirm your registration for the newsletter (double opt-in). If you do not confirm the registration, it will automatically expire and the data will not be processed for the newsletter dispatch.

To send the newsletter, we use a service of the Rocket Science Group (MailChimp): Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
MailChimp is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organised and analysed. When you enter data for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. email address), this data is stored on MailChimp’s servers in the USA.
MailChimp has been certified in accordance with the “EU-US Privacy Shield”. The “Privacy Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA, which is intended to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
With the help of MailChimp, we can analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the email (so-called web-beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the USA. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you do not want any analysis by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can also unsubscribe directly on the website.
The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of MailChimp after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

For more details, please refer to MailChimp’s privacy policy at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.
