General Information

Provision of data

As a rule, it is neither legally nor contractually required to provide personal data in order to use our website. Insofar as the provision of data is necessary for the conclusion of a contract or the user is obliged to provide personal data, we shall inform the user of this circumstance and the consequences of not providing the data in this privacy policy.

Data transfer to third countries

We may use service providers and third parties located in countries outside the European Union and the European Economic Area. The transfer of personal data to such third countries takes place on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission (Art. 45 GDPR) or we have provided appropriate safeguards to ensure data protection (Art. 46 GDPR). Insofar as there is an adequacy decision by the European Commission for the transfer of data to a third country, we refer to this in this privacy policy. Furthermore, users can obtain a copy of the appropriate safeguards from us, insofar as these are not already contained in the privacy policies of the service providers or third-party providers.

Automated decision-making

In the event that we use automated decision-making, including profiling, this privacy policy will inform you of this fact, the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing. Otherwise, there shall be no automated decision-making process.

Processing for other purposes

Data is generally only processed for the purposes for which it was collected. If, in exceptional cases, data is intended to be further processed for other purposes, we will inform you of these other purposes prior to such further processing and provide all other relevant information (Art. 13 (3) GDPR).

Website hosting

Every time our website is called up, the user’s browser transmits various data. For the duration of the visit on the website, the following data is processed and stored in log files even after the connection has ended:

  • Browser type and version used
  • Operating system
  • Pages and files accessed
  • Amount of data transmitted
  • Date and time of retrieval
  • User’s provider
  • IP address in anonymous form
  • Referrer URL

The processing of this data is necessary in order to deliver the website to the user and to optimise it for the user’s end device. Storage in log files serves to improve the security of our website (e.g. protection against DDOS attacks). IP addresses are rendered anonymous before being stored in log files.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to provide the website and to improve website security. Log files are automatically deleted after 30 days.

Cookies, pixel tags and mobile identifiers

On our website, we use technologies to recognise the used end device. These can be cookies, pixel tags and/or mobile identifiers.

The recognition of an end device can generally be used for different purposes. It may be necessary in order to provide functions of our website, for example to make a shopping cart available. In addition, these technologies can be used to track user behaviour on the site, for example for advertising purposes. We describe the technologies we use and the purpose of their use separately and in detail in this privacy policy.

For a better understanding, we will explain below how cookies, pixel tags and mobile identifiers work in general:

  • Cookies are small text files that contain certain information and are stored on the user’s end device. In most cases, the information consists of an identification number that is assigned to an end device (cookie ID).
  • A pixel tag is a transparent graphic file that is integrated into a page and enables a log file analysis.
  • A mobile identifier is a unique number (mobile ID) stored on a mobile device which can be read out by a website.

Cookies may be required for our website to function properly. The legal basis for the use of cookies of this nature is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to provide the functions of our website.

We use cookies that are not required for the operation of our website in order to make our offer more user-friendly or to be able to trace the use of our website. The legal basis here depends on whether user consent must be obtained or whether we can invoke a legitimate interest. The user can revoke given consent, among other things, by means of browser settings at any time.

The user can prevent and object to the processing of data by means of cookies by choosing suitable browser settings. An objection may lead to some functions on the website no longer being available. We will inform you separately about further possibilities for objecting to the processing of personal data by means of cookies in this privacy policy. Where necessary, we provide links which can be used to state an objection. These are labelled “opt-out”.

Establishing contact

In the event contact is established, we process the user’s details, date and time for the purpose of processing the enquiry, including any queries.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to answer our user’s enquiries. Additional legal basis is provided by Art. 6(1) b) GDPR, if processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

The data will be deleted as soon as the enquiry, including any queries, has been answered. We will check at regular intervals, but at least every two years, whether any data accumulated in connection with contacts must be deleted.
