General information about data processing

Legal basis for the processing of personal data Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 letter a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing required to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation that our company is subject to, Art. 6 para. 1 letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 letter d GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Data erasure and storage duration

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, they may be stored if provided for by the European or national legislator in regulations in Union law, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. A blocking or deletion of the data takes place even if a storage period prescribed by the mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for a conclusion of contract or a fulfilment of the contract.

1. Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. There is no processing of personal data of our users. An exception applies to cases in which it is not possible to obtain consent beforehand for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Description and Scope of Data Processing

2.1 Visiting the website

When you access our website, our system does not record any personal data of the visitor. In particular, we do not store any data by means of so-called "cookies" and we do not store IP addresses beyond the duration of the session. The browser used, the operating system used or the websites via which visitors have accessed our website are also not recorded. There are no log files in which data about visitors to our website are stored. To a very small extent, technical data is temporarily collected without any personal reference, insofar as this is necessary to maintain the technical functionality of the website. The legal basis for the temporary storage of this data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. No further processing of this data takes place. 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 user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.

2.2 Contact form

The personal data that you provide to us as part of this contact request (including name, e-mail address, IP address) will only be used to respond to your request or contact and for the associated technical administration. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent when sending the contact enquiry) as well as Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (pre-contractual measures) if the enquiry is aimed at concluding a contract. The data will not be passed on to third parties. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In this case, your personal data will be deleted immediately. Your personal data will also be deleted without your revocation if we have processed your request or if you revoke the consent to storage granted here.

3. Plugins / Tools

Google Maps: This site uses the mapping service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4. To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Furthermore, the tool is only used after the required consent has been given in the Cookie Consent Manager. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent). More information on the handling of user data can be found in Google's privacy policy: Google may also process some of the information it collects outside the European Union, for example in the USA. The European Commission adopted the adequacy decision for the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (successor to the "Privacy Shield") on July 10, 2023. The adequacy decision can now serve as the basis for data transfers to certified organisations in the US. Google has certified under the EU-US Data Privacy Framework.
