General

Below we inform you about the collection of personal data when using our website.

The term “personal data” refers to the definition of Article 4 (1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (hereafter referred to as the “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR” for short) as meaning all data relating to you personally. This includes, for example, name, address, e-mail addresses, user behavior. With regard to the other terminology, in particular the terms “processing”, “controller”, “processor” and “consent”, we refer to the legal data protection definitions of Art. 4 GDPR.

In principle, we process personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and the content and services offered by us.

The processing of personal data takes place regularly only if you have given us consent in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR or processing is permitted by statutory provisions, in particular by one of the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) to lit. f) DSGVO. Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is removed. In addition, storage may be provided if required by national or European regulations to which we are subject. In this case a blocking or deletion of the data takes place, if the storage period prescribed in the respective regulations has expired. The latter does not apply if further storage of the data is required for the conclusion of a contract or for then fulfillment of the contract.

As far as we rely on commissioned service providers for individual functions of our website or would like to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail below about the respective processes.
