II. General information on data protection

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

In principle we process our users’ personal data to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. Our users’ personal data are only processed after users have granted their consent. An exception to this rule applies in cases in which obtaining consent in advance is not possible for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Where we obtain consent from the data subject for the personal data processing processes, the legal basis for this is Article 6 paragraph 1A GDPR.

If the processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interests, Article 6 paragraph 1F GDPR is the legal basis of the processing.

3. Data deletion and duration of storage

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocks as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. The data can also be stored if this is provided for under European or national legislation in directives, laws or other provisions under European Union law to which the responsible party is subject. The data are also blocked or deleted if a storage period set out by the above-mentioned standards expires unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion of a contract or the performance of a contract.

III. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of the data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically stores data and information from the computer system accessing the website.

The access logs for the web server record which pages were accessed at what time. They include the following data:

  • IP
  • Directory protection user
  • Date
  • Time
  • Pages accessed
  • Records
  • Status code
  • Quantity of data
  • Referrer URL (in other words the website visited previously)
  • User agent
  • Host name accessed

The IP addresses are stored anonymised using technical precautionary measures. In other to do this, the last three characters are removed, in other words 127.0.0.1 becomes 127.0.0.*. IPv6 addresses are also anonymised.

As a result, the data can no longer be allocated to the user accessing the site. The data are not stored together with users’ other personal data.

2. Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Article 6 paragraph 1F GDPR.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is needed to deliver the website to the user’s computer. In order to do this, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.

Log files are stored to ensure the functionality of the website. We also use the data to optimise the website and ensure the security of our information technology systems. There is no evaluation of the data for marketing purposes in this context.

These purposes represent a legitimate interest in data processing on our part in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1F GDPR.

4. Duration of storage and right of deletion

The anonymised IP addresses are stored for 60 days. Information on the directory protection users are anonymised after one day.

Error logs, which record erroneous attempts to access pages, are deleted after seven days. In addition to the error messages, these also include the IP address accessing the website and, depending on the error, the website accessed. 

Access attempts made via FTP are recorded in an anonymous manner and stored for 60 days.

An individual determination of the duration of storage is not possible.

5. Right of appeal

Data must be recorded on the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files in order for the website to be operated. The user therefore has no right of appeal.

IV. Use of cookies

1. Description and scope of the data processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files stored in the internet browser or by the internet browser on the user’s computer system.

The legal basis for the processing of personal cookies using cookies that are technically necessary is Article 6 paragraph 1F GDPR.

The purpose of the use of technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. You can also, however, block cookies. In this case, some functions of our website (e.g. videos embedded via YouTube) will not be available.

The user data collected by means of technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.

The analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and the content. Through the analysis cookies, we find out how the website is used and can therefore optimise our online presence.

These purposes represent a legitimate interest in processing personal data in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1F GDPR.

4. Duration of storage and right to revocation or deletion

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and sent by their computer to our website. You as the user therefore have full control of the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transfer of cookies. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time. This can also occur automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, not all of the functions of the website may be able to be used to the full extent.

Contact can be made via the email address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data sent with the email are stored.

2. Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the processing of the data sent via email is Article 6 paragraph 1F GDPR. If the email contact seeks to conclude a contract, an additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6 paragraph 1B GDPR.

3. Purpose of the data processing

In the event that contact is made by email, this represents the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

4. Duration of storage

The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of personal data sent via email, this is the case once the respective conversation with the user is over. The conversation is over when the circumstances dictate that the content in question has been finally clarified.

The personal data also collected during the sending process are deleted after a period of no more than seven days.

5. Right of appeal and deletion

The user can revoke his or her consent for the processing of his/her personal data at any time. If the user contacts us via email, he/she can revoke his/her consent for the storage of his/her personal data at any time. In this case, the conversation cannot be continued.

All personal data stored when contact is made are deleted in this case.

VII. Passing personal data on to third parties

Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse, to prepare reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator linked to the use of the website and the use of the internet.

The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies at any time by setting your browser software accordingly; we wish to note, however, that if you do this you will not be able to use all of the functions of this website to the full extent.
