III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we only process personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only effected with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company (controller) is subject, Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by  our company (controller) or by a third party and interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not overweigh the first mentioned interests, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the lawful basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage period

The personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the european or national legislator in European Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.



IV. Provision of the website and generation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is visited, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected:

(1) Information about the browser type and version used

(2) The operating system of the user

(3) The user’s internet service provider

(4) The IP address of the user

(5) Date and time of access

(6) Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website

To measure access, the data is stored in the log file pseudonymously and evaluated without the possibility of tracing. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for data processing

Legal basis for temporary storage of data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR .

3. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise 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.

These purposes are also legitimate our interest in data processing according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR.

4. Period of storage

The data were deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was 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.

In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary (§ 25 (2) no. 2 TTDSG) for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

VII. Email contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

Information you send to us unencrypted by email can possibly be read by third parties on the transmission path. As a rule, we are also unable to verify your identity and do not know who is hiding behind an email address. Legally secure communication by simple e-mail is therefore not guaranteed. Like many email providers, we use filters against unwanted advertising (“SPAM filters”), which in rare cases automatically classify even normal emails as unwanted advertising by mistake and delete them. Emails containing harmful programs (“viruses”) are always automatically deleted by us. You should send us sensitive personal data by post. If you use the email contact provided by us for electronic contact, the transmitted data will be stored. 

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an email is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If the email contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract or a request within the scope of an existing contract with us, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GPDR.

3. Purpose of the data processing

In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. Within the scope of a contract initiation or existing contractual relationship with us, we process your data in order to fulfil your request.

4. Period of storage

For data sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

If the user contacts us by email, he or she can object to the storage of his or her personal data at any time (to the email address mentioned under I.). In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.



VIII. Marketing communication via post, email or telephone

1. Description and scope of data processing

We process personal data, i.e. customer data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. email, telephone numbers) for the purpose of marketing communication, which can take place via various channels, e.g. email, telephone, post. For example, we send invitations by post or email to business customers, existing customers and interested parties to company events, to our trade fair stand or also information about new products. We also send our business customers our Christmas greetings by email.

2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for sending marketing communication is either a consent given in advance, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR or our legitimate interest in informing and retaining our customers, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. GDPR. In doing so, we have carefully weighed up any conflicting interests of the data subjects.

3. Purpose of the data processing
Direct marketing (e.g. by email or post).

4. Possibility of objection and removal

Recipients have the right to withdraw consent given at any time or to object to promotional communication at any time. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.



IX. Service provider

Within the context of the processing of the website and the maintenance of the technical infrastructure, we commission carefully selected processors. We only work with processors that provide sufficient guarantees that appropriate technical and organisational measures are implemented in such a way that the processing is carried out in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR and ensures the protection of the rights of the data subjects.



X. Presence in social networks, social plugins and third-party providers

We enrich online presences within social networks in order to communicate with the users active there or to offer information about us. 

When visiting our website, additional services from YouTube and social plugins (Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram) are offered via a so-called two-click solution. When the website is first accessed, no data is transmitted to the operators. Only after you, as a user, have consented to the opt-in procedure by clicking on the appropriate button, will data (including the URL of the current page and your IP address) be transmitted to the respective operator immediately and for each subsequent visit. As a user, you can thus decide for yourself whether you consent to the activation of these offers and the transfer of data. You can revoke this consent at any time and prevent further data transmission to the operators by clicking on the corresponding button on the homepage.
