2. Data Collection on our Website
2.1 Cookies

This website uses cookies that serve the purpose of rendering our offer more userfriendly, effective and safe. Cookies are small text files that are deposited on your computer and stored by your browser.

The majority of the cookies used by us are so-called “Session Cookies”. They are automatically deleted upon the termination of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until such time as you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser upon your next visit.

You may adjust your browser settings in such a way that you are informed of the placement of cookies and only allow cookies in an individual case, rule out acceptance of cookies in certain cases or as a general rule and activate the automatic deletion of the cookies upon the closure of your browser. If the cookies are deactivated the functional capability of this website may be restricted.

Cookies that are necessary for the implementation of the electronic communications process or the provision of certain functions desired by you will be stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically faultless and optimised provision of its services.

2.2 Server Log Files
The provider of the sites collects and automatically stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:

  • Browser Type and Browser Version
  • Operating System used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host Name of the Accessing Computer
  • Time of the Server Inquiry
  • IP Address

These data shall not be merged with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data in order to fulfil either the contract itself or pre-contractual measures.

3. Further Data Processing
As a general principle, we collect and process personal data only inasmuch as this is necessary for the provision of our services and carrying out of our activities. After our contractual obligations have been fulfilled we shall only process the data if consent has been given. An exception applies in cases in which it should not, for factual reasons, be possible to obtain consent beforehand or the processing of the data is permitted under statutory regulations.

In the event of consent being granted, Art. 6 Para.1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis. In cases of the processing of personal data whereby such processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the person affected is a party, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR forms the legal basis. This also applies to processing that is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Inasmuch as processing of personal data should be necessary in order to comply with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. Should processing be necessary to preserve the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party and should the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the person not override the first-named interest, Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f GDPR shall form the legal basis of the processing.

The personal data shall be stored until such time as you demand their deletion from us, revoke your consent or the purpose of the data processing should lapse (e.g. after full implementation of a contract). Mandatory statutory provisions and storage periods remain unaffected by this.

4. Forwarding of the Data
We shall be making your personal data available to our service providers to a strictly limited extent, should this be necessary for the implementation of the contracted. We have subjected these companies contractually to obligations to take the same security measures with regard to the personal data, to respect the confidentiality of those data and to process them only at our explicit instruction.

Moreover, your data shall not be forwarded without your explicit consent and shall in particular not be transmitted to third states.

5. Rights of the Affected Persons
5.1 Right to Data Transferability

According to Art. 20 GDPR you possess the right to cause data that we process automatically on the basis of your given consent or by way of fulfilling a contract to be handed over to either yourself or a third party in a standard, machinereadable format. Should you demand the direct transfer of the data to another responsible entity, this shall be done only inasmuch as it should be technically feasible.

5.2 Information, Blocking, Deletion
Within the framework of the valid statutory provisions you possess at all times the right to information, free of charge, about your stored personal data, the origin and recipients thereof and the purpose of the processing as well as, if applicable, the right to cause said data to be corrected, blocked or deleted. On these matters as well as any other questions related to the topic of personal data, you may approach us at any time under the address indicated in contact details for this website. The individual rights according to the European General Data Protection Regulation are the following:

  • Information (Art. 15)
  • Correction (Art. 16)
  • Deletion (Art. 17)
  • Restriction upon Processing (Art. 18)
  • Objection to Processing (Art. 21)
  • Data Transferability (Art. 20)
  • If applicable, Revocation of Consent (Art. 7 Para. 3)

6. Right to revoke your Consent
You may revoke your given consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to shall suffice for this. The legality of any data processing performed on the basis of your approval until the time of your revocation shall remain unaffected by said revocation.

Please note that we, for technical and/or legal reasons shall not be able to offer you our full range of services should you object to the data processing and transmission wholly or partially or revoke your given consent.
