In the following, we would like to inform you about the processing of your data when visiting our website and using our content and services “Personal data” is, according to the GDPR, any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject).
An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of association with an identifier (such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, IP address, location data or special characteristics such as genetic, economic and social identity of that natural person).
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon data, whether or not by automatic means. This includes, in particular, collection, recording, organization, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or making available, alignment, combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
With regard to the other data protection terms used, we refer to the definitions in Art. 4 DS-GVO.
3. Scope of the processing of data
In order to use our website, it is generally not necessary for you to provide data. In certain cases, however, we need your name and address as well as other information so that we can provide the requested services.
The same applies, for example, to the sending of information material or to answering individual questions. Where this is necessary, we will point this out to you accordingly. In addition, we only process data that you provide to us voluntarily and, where applicable, data that we collect automatically when you visit our website (e.g. the resolution of your screen).
If you make use of services, we generally only collect the data that we need to provide the services. If we ask you for further data, this is voluntary information.
4. Purpose limitation of the processing of data
We process the data you provide in accordance with the principles of data minimization and purpose limitation. The purpose limitation principle means that data is collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and may not be further processed in a manner incompatible with those purposes. Further processing for archival purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes is not considered incompatible with the original purposes.
In principle, we process your data for the purpose of answering your inquiries, processing your orders or providing you with access to certain 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 data to inform you about product offers or to conduct online surveys to better meet the tasks and requirements of our customers.
We will process the data you provide online only for the purposes communicated to you.
5. passing on of data to external parties
Your data will only be passed on to external parties in exceptional cases,
to external service providers acting on our behalf (order processors), if this is necessary for the purpose of implementing the contractual relationship,
to state institutions and authorities if we are legally obliged to do so, or
if you consent to this.
We conclude the necessary agreements on commissioned processing with the commissioned processors on the basis of Art. 28 DS-GVO. The service companies commissioned by us are obligated by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO and the BDSG. The data passed on may only be used by our service providers to fulfill their task. Any other use of the information is not permitted and does not occur with any of the service providers entrusted by us.
A transmission and further processing of data to 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.
Beyond this, we do not pass on any data to third parties unless you have given your express consent.
Of course, we will respect your wishes if you do not want us to use your data to support our customer relationship (especially for direct marketing or market research purposes). We will neither sell your data to third parties nor market it in any other way unless you have given us your consent to do so.
6. data transfer to a third country
If, in the context of using third-party services, it comes to the disclosure or transfer of data to third parties in a third country, i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA), and data is further processed, this will only be done on the basis of your consent, a legal obligation, our legitimate interests or if it is necessary for the fulfillment of our (pre)contractual obligations.
Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or allow the processing of data in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DS-GVO are met. This means that the processing is carried out, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of an EU-compliant or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “EU standard data protection clauses”).
7. legal basis for the processing of data
Insofar as we obtain your consent for processing operations of data, the consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO constitutes the legal basis for the processing of your data.
When processing data that is required to fulfill the requested service, we refer to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO as the legal basis.
If processing of data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DS-GVO is the legal basis.
If processing 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 outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO forms the legal basis for processing.
8. storage period and data deletion
We store your data only until the purpose of processing has been fulfilled and no other legal storage obligations exist (e.g. storage obligations under commercial or tax law).
If you have given us consent, we will store your data until you revoke your consent, provided there is no other legal basis for processing your data and no statutory retention periods prevent deletion.
In addition, in individual cases, e.g. for evidence purposes, longer retention may be indicated for the defense / enforcement of civil or public law claims or for evidence purposes.
