3. Data collection on our website
Many websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause harm to your computer nor do they contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files downloaded onto your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so called “session cookies“. They are automatically deleted when you leave our site. Other cookies remain on your computer until you actively delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser when you visit our website again.
You can set your browser in a way that you are notified about the storage of cookies; that cookies are only accepted in specific cases; that in certain cases or generally cookies will not be accepted; that cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of our website.
Cookies that are needed for the performance of electronic communication processes or for the provision of certain functions required by you (e. g. the shopping cart) are saved on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of services. If other cookies are stored (e.g. to analyze your surfing behavior), this data protection declaration will address this point specifically.
Server log files
The operator of this website automatically collects and saves information that your browser is automatically transmitting to us in so-called log files. This refers to:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of accessing computer
- Time of server request
- IP address
- This data will not be merged with other data sources.
The processing of data is based on Article 6(1)(b) GDPR, permitting the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
When you send us a request via our contact form, the information contained in the form including the contact data you provided will be saved for processing the request and for the case that further questions arise. We will not divulge this data without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form is thus exclusively processed on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time. An informal email message sent to us is sufficient. The legality of the processing of data prior to the withdrawal will not be affected.
The data entered in the contact form remains with us until you request the deletion, withdraw your consent to storage, or the purpose of storage has ceased to exist (e.g. after completed processing of your request). Mandatory legal provisions – particularly retention periods – remain unaffected.
Comment function on this website
If you use this site’s comment function, apart from the comment itself, information on the time the comment was made, your email address and, if the post was not made anonymously, the user name you chose will be stored.
Storage of IP address
Our comment function stores the IP addresses of users posting comments. As we do not check comments on our site before their release, we need this data to take legal action against the author in the case of legal violations such as offences or propaganda.
Processing of data (customer and contractual data)
We collect, process and use personal data only if required for the justification, the content-related design or changes to the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR, permitting the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process and use personal data about the utilization of our website (utilization data) if required for purposes of making use of our services and invoicing.
