Data processing by visiting our website
When you call up our web pages, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status
- Web browser and operating system used
- (Complete) IP address of the requesting computer
- Transferred data volume
We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file serves to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data or log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempts to attack our web server, this data is stored by us for a short period of time. On the basis of this data, it is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons. After 7 days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user.
In anonymized form, the data is also processed for statistical purposes. At no time will this data be stored together with other personal data of the user, compared with other databases or passed on to third parties.
Contact form and contact by e-mail
If you send us inquiries via contact form or e-mail, your details from the inquiry form or your e-mail, including the first name and surname you entered there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. The indication of an e-mail address is required for contact purposes, the indication of your name and your telephone number is voluntary. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and, if applicable, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if your request is aimed at the conclusion of a contract. Your data will be deleted after the final processing of your inquiry, provided that there are no legal obligations to keep records. In the case of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time.
In some cases, the cookies are used to simplify website processes by storing settings (e.g. the retention of previously selected options). Insofar as personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b DSGVO either for the execution of the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO to protect our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the site visit.
