General information on data processing
1. Scope of Processing of Personal Data
We process the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users regularly takes place only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.
2. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as a legal basis in the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3. Data Deletion and Storage Period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. In addition, the data may be stored if the European or national legislator has provided for this in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless it is necessary for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
Provision of the website and creation of log files
1. Description and Scope of Data Processing
Each time you access our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data will be collected:
(1) Information about the browser type and the version used
(2) The user’s operating system
(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
(7) Websites accessed by the User’s system through our Website
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal Basis for Data Processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
3. Purpose of 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 IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used 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 also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
4. Duration of Storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data to provide the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage going beyond this 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 data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.
a) Description and Scope of Data Processing
(1) Entered search terms
(2) Frequency of page views
(3) Use of website functions
(4) Language settings
The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions. It is therefore no longer possible to assign the data to the calling user. The data are not stored together with other personal data of the users.
Whether the previous practice of the “opt-out solution” meets the requirements of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DGVO cannot be said with certainty at present. The planned e-privacy regulation could bring clarity in this respect. Until then, however, the legally most secure solution is to obtain the prior consent of the user (“opt-in solution”). In other words, if the user’s consent is obtained before the technically unnecessary cookies are set and retrieved:
b) Legal Basis for Data Processing
If only technically necessary cookies are used or if technically necessary cookies and technically not necessary cookies are used without the prior consent of the user:
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If technically necessary and not necessary cookies are used with the prior consent of the user:
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent.
c) Purpose of Data Processing
If technically necessary cookies are used:
The analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus constantly optimize our offer.
Our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO also lies in these purposes.
