In accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of data for the purpose of direct marketing.

III. Information about data processing

Your data that is processed when you use our website will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply, there are no legal retention obligations which oppose the erasure of the data and no differing statements are made concerning specific processing operations in the following..

Server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted by your Internet browser to us or to our web space provider. These so-called server log files are used to record, among other things, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you accessed our website (referrer URL), the website(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of the respective access, and the IP address of the Internet service provider..

The data collected in this way is temporarily stored, but not together with other data from you.

This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

The data will be deleted again after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidentiary purposes. Otherwise, the data is exempt from deletion in whole or in part until an incident is finally clarified.

Cookies

a) Session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your end device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.  

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) letter b GDPR, insofar as these cookies data are processed for the purpose of initiating or executing a contract.

If the processing does not serve the initiation or execution of a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR.

These session cookies are erased when you close your internet browser.

b) Third-party cookies

Our website may also be used with cookies from partner companies with whom we collaborate for the purpose of advertising, analysis or to provide the functions of our website.

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by changing the settings of your internet browser. Likewise, you can delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on your specific Internet browser used. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the specific Flash player you use. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

However, if you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

Contact requests / contact possibility

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your request – without their provision, we can not answer your request or at best limited.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) letter b GDPR.

Your data will be deleted if your inquiry has been answered conclusively and the deletion does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data, e.g. in the case of subsequent contract processing.
