Personal data

Your personal data is all information used to identify you and which can be traced back to you, such as

  • your name
  • your home address
  • your e-mail address
  • your telephone number

Personal data will only be collected, used and/or passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose, has a legitimate interest in it or is permitted by law, or if your prior consent has been given.

Processor

The processing of your data may also be carried out by an external data processor, which we would oblige by contract to collect, process and use your personal data only in accordance with our instructions.

Our external data processor will provide us with a guarantee of proper data processing and will keep, like us, a record of his/her processing activities.

Data collection when you visit our website

In the case of a merely informational use of our website, i.e. if you do not register or you otherwise provide us with information, we will only collect the data that your browser transmits to our server (the so-called "server log files"). When you visit our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to show you the site:

  • our visited website
  • date and time when you accessed
  • amount of data sent in bytes
  • source/link from which you reached the page
  • browser used
  • operating system used
  • IP address used (if applicable: in anonymous form) 

The processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. A transfer or other use of the data does not take place. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files at a later time, should concrete reasons arise that leave the assumption of an illegal use.

Purpose of storing personal data

Your data will only be stored and processed for the purpose of performing your request for a contractual partnership and for the execution and processing of the contractual relationship with you. Your data may also be passed on to third party for the conclusion of your order, in particular the delivery of goods to you (Article 6(1)(b) of GDPR).

Processing may also take place if this is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject (Article 6(1)(c) of GDPR) or to protect legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party (Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR) or if you have given your consent to the processing for the specific purpose (Article 6(1)(a) of GDPR).

Your data will be deleted automatically after the final processing of your request, if it is clear from the circumstances that the facts concerned are definitely clarified, no further processing is required (for example in the context of closing a contract with a contracting party) and if there are no legal storage obligations.

Web analytics services – Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and allow us to analyze the use of the website via you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the abbreviated IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension  “_anonymizeIp()”, which ensures that the IP address is anonymized by truncation and any direct personally identifiable information is removed. By means of this extension, your IP address will be truncated by Google inside the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting States of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. In these exceptional cases the data processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour, for optimization and marketing purposes.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide us with other services related to the use of the website and the use of the Internet. The IP address submitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website in full.

Duration of storage of personal data

Personal data will only be stored as long as this is necessary for the processing of your request and the performance or processing of your order, and is in our interest or is necessary to the extent permitted by law.

A further or later processing of personal data is only carried out if the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose.

Your rights regarding your stored personal data / Information, rectification, objection, erasure and complaint

If you do not already have this information and you expressely require, within one month after receiving your request we will give you free-of-charge information on where your personal data comes from, to whom we may send the information, for what purpose and for how long we process the data. The delay can be extended by a further two months, taking into account the complexity and the number of requests we receive. On your demand we can provide you with our information and send you your data in electronic format or on paper.

Provided that no storage or retention obligations of your data (e.g. data retention), legitimate interests or legal obligations are conflicting with us, you have the right to rectify incorrect data and to block or delete your personal data. A right to erasure   exists even if the storage of your data is no longer necessary.

If the storage and processing of your personal data takes place on the basis of a legitimate interest pursued by us or a third party, you may object to this processing, provided that your legitimate interests override ours or those of the third party. 

We may only process your personal data in a limited form if you have expressed disagreement over the accuracy of your personal data or our processing is unlawful.

If you believe that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR, you have the right - regardless of any other administrative or legal remedy - to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your place of residence, your place of work or the place where the presumed infringement occurred.

Right to data portability

If expressly required, we will transmit your personal data - that you provided to us - to another person responsible named by you, and make the data available in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
