III. General Information on data processing1. Scope of the processing of personal dataWe only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only after consent of the user. An exception applies in such cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for substantive reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal dataInsofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In case of the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract of 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.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as a legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 para 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if 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 processing.
3. Data erasure and storage timeThe personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the Controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files1. Description and scope of data processingEvery time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data is collected:

(2) The user's operating system
(3) The IP address of the user
(4) Date and time of access
(5) Websites from which the user's system reaches our website
(6) Websites accessed by the user's system via our website
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal basis for data processingThe legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processingThe temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR also lies in these aforementioned purposes.
4. Duration of storageThe data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after 30 days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or distorted, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
5. Possibility of objection and/or erasureThe collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

For the personal data sent by e-mail or via contact form this is the case when the conversation with the user is finished.

5. Possibility of objection and/or erasureThe user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot continue.
