(1) The following privacy policy explains what personal data we collect when you use our website, and how we use that data.

(2) As defined in Article 4(1) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), "personal data" means any information concerning you personally. This includes, for example, your name, postal address, e-mail address and user activity. In respect of other terms, in particular "processing", "controller", "processor" and "consent", please refer to the statutory definitions contained in Article 4 GDPR.

(4) Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for retaining it no longer applies. Personal data may furthermore be retained where required under the provisions of German or European law to which we are subject. In such cases, the data will be blocked or deleted once the statutory retention period expires. However, data will not be deleted if it must be retained for purposes of entering into or performing a contract.

IV. Processing of personal data when using our website for informational purposes

(1) If you access our website without registering or otherwise providing us with information ("informational use"), we only collect that personal data which your web browser transmits to our server. When you visit our website, we collect data which is technically necessary for us to allow you to view our site and to ensure its stability and security. That data includes your IP address, the date and time of request, GMT offset, web page content, HTTP response status, data volume transferred, requested URL, web browser, operating system, browser language and version.

(2) The aforementioned data is also stored on our server in so-called log files. That data is not stored together with your other personal data. 

(3) It is stored in log files, which makes it possible to optimise and ensure the functionality of our website as well as the security of our IT systems.

The legal basis for collecting and temporarily storing the aforementioned data and the log files is Article 6(1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR. The data required for providing our website will be deleted after the session ends, but it must be collected on order to operate our website. There is no opting out.

V. Processing personal data via cookies

(1) This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files which are stored on the storage medium of your terminal device, for example on a hard drive, and via which we, as the party placing the cookie, receive certain information. Cookies cannot run any programs or transfer viruses to your terminal device. This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functions of which are explained below.

(2) Cookies which are stored in your browser’s memory:

  • Transient cookies: these are temporary cookies which are deleted automatically when you close your browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. They store a "session ID", which is used to allocate different requests from your browser to the joint session, allowing your terminal device to be recognised the next time your visit our website. Session cookies are deleted as soon as you log out or close your browser. 

(3) Processing personal data using these types of cookies serves to make our website more functional and user-friendly overall. Without these cookies, the full functionalities of our website would not be available. Certain functionalities of our website require that your browser be able to be identified even after you switch pages. If you have an account, we use the cookies so that you will be remembered the next time you visit our website and can thus avoid having to log in again every time you access our website. The data processed by cookies required to provide our website functionalities is not used to create user profiles. To the extent that cookies are used for analytical purposes, these serve to optimise the quality and user-friendliness of our website as well as its content and features. They allow us to track which features of the website are used and how frequently, which enables us to continually optimise our services.

(4) The aforementioned purposes constitute our legitimate interest in the data processing. The legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

(5) These cookies will be stored on your terminal device and transmitted to our server. This means that you yourself can configure the data and information processed by the cookies. You can configure your browser settings to, for example, reject third-party cookies or cookies altogether. Please be advised that rejecting cookies may prevent you from being able to properly use all of the functionalities of this website. We also recommend that you periodically clear cookies and your browser history.

VI. Additional website functions and services

(1) In addition to the above-described informational use of our website, we offer a variety of services that you can use if interested. This generally requires that you provide additional personal data, which we require in order to provide the specific service. The above data processing principles apply hereto.

(2) In some cases, we engage carefully selected external service providers to carry out the processing. These processors are bound by our instructions and audited by us on a regular basis. Further information about the disclosure of data to third parties in the context of offering services jointly with partners is available below in the descriptions of the individual services. Where such third parties are domiciled in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), further information about the implications of this is available below in the descriptions of the individual services.

Insofar as you have given us your consent for such processing, the legal basis for the processing that data is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. Otherwise, the legal basis for processing that data is Article 6(1) l(f) GDPR, in particular when the data is transferred to us when you send us an e-mail. Insofar as the purpose of your e-mail is to enter into a contract, Article 6 (1)(b) GDPR constitutes an additional legal basis.

If you contact us by e-mail, you may at any time object to the retention of your personal data. Please note that in this case we would not be able to process your enquiry any further.
