Privacy policy

I. General information about data protection

1. Extent of the personal data processing

 In principle, we process personal data from our users only to the extent necessary for providing a functioning website and our content and services. Our users’ personal data is processed regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception is in cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for material reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

2. Legal basis for the processing personal data

 Insofar as we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis.

When processing personal data necessary to fulfil a contract, the contractual party of which is the data subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR forms the legal basis. This also applies to the processing required for realising pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation, to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR forms the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR forms the legal basis.

If processing is necessary in order to safeguard a justified interest of our company or a third party and the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not exceed the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR forms the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and period of retention

 The data subject’s personal data is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storage no longer exists. In addition, storage is also possible if this has been required by the European or national parliaments in union directives, laws or other provisions, to which the responsible person is subject. The data may also be blocked or deleted if the storage period prescribed by the cited standards expires, unless it is necessary to store the data further in order to conclude or fulfil a contract.

IV. Provision of website and creation of logfiles

1. Description and extent of data processing

Every time our website is accessed, our customer automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.

The following data is collected:

(1) Information about the browser type and version used
(2) The user’s operating system
(3) The user’s Internet Service Provider
(4) The user’s IP address
(5) Date and time of access
(6) Websites from which the user’s system came to our internet site
(7) Websites called up by the user’s system via our website

The logfiles contain IP addresses or other data, which facilitate the identification of a user. This might be the case, for example, if the link to the website from which the user came to our website or the link to the website to which the user moves on, contains personal data.

The data is also saved in our system’s logfiles. This data is not stored together with the user’s other personal data.

2. Legal basis for the data processing

Legal basis for the temporary storage of data and logfiles is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary so that the website can be transmitted to the user’s computer. To this end, the user’s IP address has to remain stored for the duration of the session. This is stored in logfiles in order to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. The data is not analysed in conjunction with this for marketing purposes.

Our justified interest in data processing according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR also exists in these purposes.

4. Period of retention

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of its collection. If the data is collected in order to provide the website, this is the case when the respective session ends. If the data is stored in logfiles, this is the case after 14 days at the latest.

5. Possible refusal and correction

The recording of data is necessary in order to provide the website and it is stored in logfiles as required in order to operate the website. As a result, it is not possible for the user to refuse this.

If the restriction of processing was restricted according to the above requirements, you shall be advised by the responsible person before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to deletion

 a) Duty to delete

You can demand from the responsible person that the personal data relating to you is deleted immediately and the responsible person is obliged to delete the data immediately if one of the following grounds applies:

(1) the processing is based on consent according to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR or on a contract according to Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and
(2) the processing is performed using automated methods.

To exercise this right, you also have the right to effect the transfer of the personal data relating to you directly from one responsible person to another responsible person, provided this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons may not be affected as a result of this.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data which is necessary in order to perform a task that is in the public interest or when exercising official authority transferred to the responsible person.

8. Right to revoke declaration of consent under data protection law

 You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. Revoking the consent does not affect the legality of the processing performed until revocation of the consent.

9. Automated decision in a specific case, including profiling

 You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on an automated processing – including profiling – which has a legal impact on you or which affects you considerably in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the person responsible,
(2) is permitted on the basis of legal provisions of the European Union or the member states, to which the person responsible is subject, and these legal provisions include reasonable measures for safeguarding your rights and freedoms as well as your justified interests, or
(3) is made with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on specific categories of personal data according to Art. 9 (1) GDPR, insofar as Art. 9 (2) lit. a or g GDPR does not apply and reasonable measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your justified interests have been taken.

With regard to the cases stated in (1) (3), the person responsible shall take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your justified interests, which at least includes the right to effect the intervention of a person representing the person responsible to represent their own perspective and to appeal the decision.

10. Right to appeal to a regulatory authority

 Irrespective of any other legal remedy under administrative or court law, you have the right to appeal to a regulatory authority, notably in the member state of your residence, your workplace or the place of the alleged breach, if you believe that the processing of the personal data relating to you breaches the GDPR.

The regulatory authority, to which the appeal is submitted, shall inform the appellant of the state and results of the appeal, including the possibility of court remedy according to Art. 78 GDPR.
