(hereinafter collectively referred to as “online offer”).

I. Definitions

“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”); A natural person is considered identifiable if he or she can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier (e.g. cookie) or one or more special features, which are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. As far as “data” is mentioned below, this always refers to personal data.

“Processing” is any operation or series of operations carried out in connection with personal data, whether or not using automated procedures. The term is broad and encompasses virtually every way data is handled.

The “responsible person” is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

    • The user's operating system;
    • The user's Internet service provider;
    • The user's IP address;
    • Date and time of access;
    • Websites from which the user's system accesses our website;

  2. If a contract is concluded, we also collect and process the following data:
    • Name (including first and last name of contact persons), address, telephone and fax number, email address, VAT identification number.
    • As far as the provision of contractual services is concerned, we process inventory data (e.g., name — including first and last name) of contact persons, address, telephone and fax number, email address, date of birth of contact persons, VAT identification number) and contract data (e.g., used services, payment information).

IV. Purpose of data processing

  1. As far as the use of our website is concerned, we generally only process our users' personal data to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of our users' personal data regularly only takes place with the user's consent. An exception applies in cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

  2. As far as the provision of contractual services is concerned, we process inventory data (e.g. names and addresses as well as contact details of users), contract data (e.g. services used, names of contact persons, payment information) in order to fulfill our contractual obligations and services in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit b. GDPR. The entries marked as mandatory in online forms are required for the conclusion of the contract.

    As part of the use of our online services, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the user's protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless it is necessary to pursue our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

    We process usage data (e.g., the websites of our online offering visited, interest in our products) and content data (e.g., entries in the contact form or user profile) for advertising purposes in a user profile, for example in order to show the user product information based on the services they have previously used.

    The data will be deleted after statutory warranty and comparable obligations have expired; the necessity of storing the data will be checked every three years; In the case of legal archiving obligations, deletion occurs after their expiry (usually 10 years). Information in any customer account remains until it is deleted.

V. Legal basis for processing personal data

To the extent that we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the 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 first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

VI. Security, order processing, transfer to other countries

  1. Safety measures

    We take appropriate technical measures in accordance with Art. 32 GDPR, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the type, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the different probability of occurrence and severity of the risk for the rights and freedoms of natural persons and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk; The measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as the access, input, distribution, ensuring availability and its separation. We have also set up procedures to ensure the exercise of the rights of those affected, the deletion of data and the response to threats to data. Furthermore, we take the protection of personal data into account when developing or selecting hardware, software and processes, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings (Art. 25 GDPR).

    The security measures include, in particular, the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server.

  2. Collaboration with processors and third parties

    If, as part of our processing, we disclose data to other people and companies (contract processors or third parties), transmit it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this only takes place on the basis of legal permission (e.g. if the data is transmitted to third parties, such as to payment service providers, in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit.

    If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “order processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

  3. Transfers to third countries

    If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this occurs as part of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this will only occur if it is done to fulfill our (pre-)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we only process or have the data processed in a third country if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. GDPR 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 a data protection level that corresponds to the EU (e.g. for the USA through the “Privacy Shield”) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).

Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies,” are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offering and closes their browser. Such a cookie can, for example, store the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status. Cookies that remain stored even after the browser is closed are referred to as “permanent” or “persistent”. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it after several days. The interests of users can also be stored in such a cookie, which is used for range measurement or marketing purposes. “Third-party cookies” are cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for operating the online offering (otherwise, if they are only their cookies, they are referred to as “first-party cookies”).

We can use temporary and permanent cookies and explain this in our data protection declaration. In our case, the cookies are used to recognize returning visitors and to restore the existing configuration of the editor.

Saved cookies can be deleted in the browser's system settings. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.
