a) During the visit of our website

You can visit our website without providing us with any information about yourself (who you are).

In the case of such purely informational use of our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information about yourself, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. When you call up our website, information is automatically sent to our website server by the browser used on your terminal device. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automatic deletion:

IP address of the requesting computer,

Date and time of access,

Name and URL of the retrieved file,

Website from which the access is made (referrer URL),

Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider, language and version of the browser software

The aforementioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

Ensure smooth connection of the website,

Ensuring a comfortable use of our website,

Evaluation of system security and stability, and

for other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) EU-DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

In addition, we use cookies when you visit our website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. You can find more detailed information on this in section 5 of this privacy policy.

b) Processing based on legitimate interests

Insofar as this is necessary for our business purposes, we process your data – apart from the initiation or fulfillment of a contract and consent expressly granted by you – to protect the legitimate interests of our company, unless a weighing of individual cases shows that your fundamental rights and freedoms worthy of protection, which require the protection of personal data, prevail (cf. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) EU-DSGVO). The legitimate interests of our company include:

direct advertising, unless you have objected to the use of your personal data.

3. Passing on of data to third parties

Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned below. In particular, no data will be passed on to third parties, e.g. for advertising purposes, without your express consent.

We will only share your personal information with third parties if:

you have given your explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) EU-DSGVO;

this is necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) EU-DSGVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you, e.g. to credit institutions for the processing of contractually agreed payments, to forwarding and transport companies for the purpose of transporting goods incl. shipment tracking, in case of non-fulfillment of contractually agreed payments for the purpose of legal enforcement to lawyers and legal services companies;

if there is a legal obligation to disclose pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c) EU-DSGVO; or

the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) EU-DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data.

4. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small text files that are automatically created by your internet browser and stored on your end device (e.g. PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. In the cookie, information is stored that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we obtain direct knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies serves, among other things, to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use cookies to recognize whether you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted when you leave our site. To optimize user-friendliness, we also use cookies that are stored on your terminal device for a certain period of time. When you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized whether you have been with us before and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

A distinction must be made between cookies that are absolutely necessary for the provision of the services on this website (necessary cookies) and those that are not absolutely necessary for this purpose (non-necessary cookies).

Without the use of the necessary cookies, this website will not function properly. Such cookies are used exclusively by us (so-called first-party cookies) and all information stored in these cookies is sent only to this website.

Necessary cookies are used regardless of whether you have given your consent. The legal basis for data processing in this case is our legitimate interests, i.e. our interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website and our services (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) EU-DSGVO).

The non-essential cookies we use can be divided into the categories of preference, statistics and marketing. Marketing cookies are used by external companies (so-called third-party cookies) to collect information about the websites you visit, for example, to create targeted advertising.

Non-essential cookies are used only with your consent. By agreeing to the use of the cookies listed there and selected by you in a so-called consent tool provided by us on this website, you consent to the use of these cookies. The legal basis for data processing in this case is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) EU-DSGVO).

You can adjust your cookie settings individually at any time by activating or deactivating individual cookies – with the exception of necessary cookies – in the Consent Tool.

You can set your web browser to generally prevent cookies from being saved on your end device or you will be asked each time whether you agree to cookies being set. Once cookies have been set, you can delete them at any time. How this works is described in the help function of the respective web browser.

A general deactivation of cookies can possibly lead to functional restrictions of this website.

In particular, your personal data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed (Article 17 (1) (a) EU GDPR). Thereafter, the data will be deleted unless storage is necessary, for example, to comply with a legal obligation to process under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject (Art. 17 (3) b) EU-DSGVO) or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (Art. 17 (3) e) EU-DSGVO). A legal obligation is represented by the statutory retention obligations, e.g. according to § 147 para. 1 no. 4, para. 3 p. 1 AO a retention period of 10 years for accounting data incl. order and payment data as well as according to § 257 para. 1 no. 2, 3, para. 4 HGB a retention period of 6 years for business correspondence, e.g. e-mail messages.
