Personal data

The collection and use of your personal data is voluntary on the basis of your consent or insofar as this is necessary to provide a functioning website or is permitted by legal requirements. Data will only be shared with third parties with your explicit consent. We use SSL encryption to ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data, for example information related to your enquiries to us. 

Pursuant to Art. 6(1a) of the DSGVO, your consent is needed to legally collect and process your personal data. If we need to collect and process your data to fulfil the terms of the contract (including pre-contractual measures), the respective legal basis is Art. 6(1b) of the DSGVO; Art. 6(1c) of the DSGVO serves as the legal basis to satisfy legal obligations. If personal data is collected and processed to protect our legitimate interests, for example if we use log files or cookies, Art 6(1f) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

Information, deletion, blocking, data transferability, right of appeal

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Accordingly, we only collect your personal data to the extent that and as long as it is necessary to use our website or is prescribed by law. If the purpose of data collection no longer applies or if the end of the legal retention period has been reached, the data we have collected will be blocked or deleted. You can obtain information any time, free of charge and in a timely fashion about the personal data we have stored about you as well as about the origin, recipient and purpose of data collection and processing and the retention period. You are also entitled to request the correction, blocking or deletion and transfer of the data stored by us or to object to the future use of your data. This does not apply to data which is stored due to legal regulations or that is required for proper business transactions. If your data is not covered by a legal archiving requirement, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving requirement applies, we will block your data.

Please contact us (see above for contact information) if you have any questions and concerns about correcting, blocking or deleting personal data. In addition, there is a right of appeal to the competent data protection authority. 

Collection of access data/server log files

Technically speaking, certain data is required to see and use the content on our website. When you access our website, this is recorded in what are known as server log files by us or the provider. These log files do not make it possible to identify you personally. The respective information consists of the URL accessed, the current date and the anonymised IP address. We use this data to present and deliver our content as well as for statistical purposes. The information helps us deliver and continuously improve our website. We also reserve the right to check the data mentioned at a later time if we suspect our website is being used for illegal purposes.
