III. General Data Processing Information

1. Extent to which personal data is processed

We only ever collect and use personal data of our users to the extent to which this is necessary to provide a fully functional website and our contents and services. The regular collection and use of personal data of our users is only ever made with the user’s consent. One exception to this rule applies in cases in which, for factual reasons, it is not possible to obtain the user’s prior consent, and the processing of this data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject to process his or her personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point b of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party. This shall also apply to processing necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point c of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
Should it be necessary to process personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point d of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

Should processing be necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and such interests are not overridden by the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, then Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point f of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data erasure and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for which it has been saved ceases to apply. Further, data may also be stored if provided for by European or national legislators in Union directives, laws or other regulations, to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be deleted or blocked at such time as the storage period prescribed by the designated standards expires, unless it is necessary for the data to be stored for a further period for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

IV. Provision of the Website and Creation of Log Files

1. Description and extent of data processing

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically acquires data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected:

(1) The user’s IP address
(2) Date and time of access
(3) Website visited
(4) Quantity of data sent in bytes
(5) Source/link from which you accessed the website
(6) Browser used
(7) Operating system used

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for data processing

Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point f of the GDPR is the legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to be able to deliver the website to the user’s computer. To this end, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
Data is stored in log files to ensure that the website functions properly. In addition, the data serves to optimize the website and to guarantee the security of our IT systems. No data evaluation is carried out for marketing purposes in this context.
These purposes are also in our legitimate interests in data processing under Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point f of the GDPR.

4. Storage duration

Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data being collected in order to make the website available, this is the case when the session is terminated.

In the case of data stored in log files, this is the case after a maximum of seven days. Storage beyond this point in time is possible. In this case, the user’s IP address will be deleted or distorted, so that it can no longer be attributed to the accessing client.

5. Right to object and right of elimination

Data acquisition is essential for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is essential for operating the website. The user therefore has no right to object.

3.     Purpose of data processing

Depending on their intended use and function, we divide cookies into the following categories:

a)     Technically  necessary cookies
Technically necessary cookies guarantee functions without which our website cannot be be put to its intended use. These cookies are used exclusively by us, i.e. they are first party cookies. This means that all information stored in the cookies is returned to our website. Technically necessary cookies are used, for example, to ensure that users who have logged in always remain logged in when accessing various sub-pages of our website, and so do not have to re-enter login data every time they access a new page.
It is possible and permissible to use technically necessary cookies on our website without first obtaining consent. For this reason, individual technically necessary cookies cannot be activated or deactivated. These purposes are also in our legitimate interests in the processing of personal data under Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point f of the GDPR. Our interest in ensuring the unobstructed provision of our website and the services it offers prevails.

b)    Functional cookies
Functional cookies enable our website to store information that has already been input (such as registered name, language selection or a user’s location) and, on the basis of this information, offer improved and more personalised functions. The way in which these cookies collect and store data ensures that user behaviour on other websites cannot be tracked.

c)    Performance cookies
In order to improve the website’s attractiveness, content and functionality, performance cookies collect aggregated information about how it is used. These cookies help us to determine whether, how often and how long which website subpages are visited and what content is of particular interest to users.
These cookies do not store any information that would allow the user to be identified. The information collected is aggregated, and does not allow us to directly identify the individual. The only purpose it serves is to compile statistics in order to better tailor the content of our website to the needs of our users, to improve user experience, and to optimise our range of services.

d)    Marketing cookies
Marketing cookies come from external advertising companies (third party cookies) and are used to collect information about the websites visited by the user, to create targeted advertising for the user, and to display advertisements based on the user’s interests. They are also used to limit the frequency with which an advertisement appears, and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. This information may be shared with third parties, advertisers for instance.

4. Storage duration, right to object and right of elimination

7. Right to object

Within the scope of Art. 21 of the GDPR, you have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

If personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing purposes; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

Should you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.

In the context of the use of information society services – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EG – you are entitled to exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy in accordance with Art. 78 of the GDPR.
