II.         General information on data processing

1.       Scope of processing personal data

We generally collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent such is necessary to provide a properly functioning website as well as our contents and services and to attain the objective of our enterprise. Personal data of our users is generally only collected and used with the consent of the user. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for objective reasons and processing of the data is permitted by law.


2.       Purposes and legal foundations for the processing of personal data

We process personal data only to fulfil our contractual obligations or to protect our overriding legitimate interests. Our legitimate interests are based on the attainment of our company objective.

If we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal foundations for the processing of personal data.

The legal foundations for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contractual agreement to which the data subject is a party are laid down in Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR. This also applies to processing steps necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures.

If processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR provides the legal foundations.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Article 6 (1) (d) of the GDPR serves as the legal foundations.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh such legitimate interest, Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3.       Categories of recipients and personal data and their origin

We forward personal data to our business partners and service providers in order to attain our company objective. To attain our company objective, we generally use contact and address data of our customers and business partners. We generally receive the personal data directly from the data subject or, with the consent of the data subject, in exceptional cases from third parties.

4.       Transmission to third countries

Generally we do not disclose personal data to recipients in third countries (i.e. countries outside the EU). With regard to individual functions on our website, it is possible that data may be passed on to recipients in third countries. In these cases, we act to ensure that, in addition to the permission required for transfer, the recipient in the third country ensures an adequate level of data protection (or that an exception applies in accordance with Art 49 (1) of the GDPR).

5.       Data erasure and duration of storage

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Storage may furthermore be performed if this has been provided for by European or national lawmakers in Union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period stipulated under the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contractual agreement.

SSL or TLS encryption

This page uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you send to us in our capacity as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it is possible that not all functions of the website can still be used to the full extent.

Our website uses transient cookies. These are automatically deleted when you close your browser and frequently referred to as session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Our website also uses persistent cookies. These are automatically deleted after a predetermined period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can also delete these cookies at any time.
