We hereby inform you about the type, scope and purpose of processing personal data on our website in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). With regard to personal data and/or their processing, we refer to art. 4 of the GDPR.

Data processing as part of our company’s core business

We process your personal data provided to us as part of existing contractual and pre-contractual relationships between us.

The scope, nature, purpose and necessity of processing depend on the respective basic contractual relationship. For this purpose, we store and process your data in the computer systems we use. The data we process includes all data provided by you to use the contractual or pre-contractual services required to process your request or the contract concluded between us.

 

In particular, the following data may be taken into consideration:

  • Name and address
  • Email address and phone number
  • Order details
  • Data for payment transactions

Processing is limited to the data that are necessary and useful in responding to requests and/or for the performance of the contract. The transfer of personal data to third parties only takes place when it is necessary for the purposes of providing the service or in the context of the organization of our business in order to process financial accounting and comply with legal obligations. In this case, only data that is necessary to perform the contract or perform financial accounting, as well as to comply with legal obligations, will only be provided to external service providers. We process it in accordance with your instructions or administrative provisions. Legal basis: Processing of personal data as well as transferring them to third parties takes place in accordance with art. 6 clause 1 lit. b) of the GDPR and serves as the performance of the contract between you and us. Otherwise, we transfer data to third parties only if there is a legal obligation, art. 6 clause 1 lit. c) of the GDPR or if there is a legitimate interest, art. 6 clause 1 lit. f) of the GDPR.

This is the case, for example, when it is necessary to pursue our claims. Deletion: deletion of data takes place as soon as the data is no longer required to fulfill the contractual or legal care obligations, as well as to fulfill any guarantees and comparable obligations. This does not affect your statutory retention obligations.

Data transmission to third countries

The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Therefore, your data will be processed mainly by the companies requested by the GDPR.

If the processing is carried out through the services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must meet the special requirements set out in Article 44 and of the GDPR. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as an officially recognized level of data protection in the EU or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations, known as ‘standard contractual conditions’. In American companies, submission to the Privacy Shield, the EU-US data protection agreement, meets these requirements.

We use services to ensure our online presence of Internet service provider, whose server includes the website (hosting) and which makes our website available on the Internet. The Internet service provider processes contact details, content data, contract data, usage data, inventory data as well as meta and communication data on our behalf. Legal basis: the Internet service provider processes the above mentioned data on our behalf, art. 28 of the GDPR. Data processing takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest when we make our internet offer available efficiently and securely, art. 6 clause 1 lit. f) of the GDPR.

If you use our website for informational purposes only, our Internet service provider will only collect personal data that the browser you use sends to your server. These are the following data:

  • amount of data

  • website thanks to which you are on our website
  • pages or subpages that you visit on our website.

Storage of this data along with other personal data does not take place.

The above data is stored as log files on the servers of our Internet service provider. This is necessary to be able to display the website on the used device, as well as ensure stability and security. We have a legitimate interest in data processing for the above purposes.

Legal basis: Data processing takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest when we make our internet offer available efficiently and securely, art. 6 clause 1 lit. f) of the GDPR. Duration: the above data regarding the provision of our website will be stored until consent to processing is withdrawn.

If you submit the application in the context of contractual or pre-contractual relations, the legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 clause 1 lit. b. of the GDPR.

Contact via contact form/e-mail/mail

By contacting us via the contact form, email or mail, your data will be processed to process the contact request.

The legal basis for data processing is the consent of the user – Art. 6 of the GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of data as part of a contact request or e-mail, letter or fax is Art. 6 of the GDPR. The responsible person has a legitimate interest in the processing and storage of data in order to be able to respond to user inquiries, protect evidence for reasons related to liability and,

Deletion: Data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for collection. In the case of personal data from the input form of the contact form and data sent by email, this occurs after the conversation with you.

The conversation ends when it can be concluded from the circumstances that the issue has been finally resolved. We remove requests from users who have an account or contract with us two years after the contract is terminated.

If you sign up to our newsletter, you must provide an email address. Providing additional data, such as a greeting or name, is voluntary and will be used to contact you. As soon as you sign up to our newsletter, you will receive a confirmation email to the email address provided during registration under the Double Selection Procedure. This email contains a link.

Social media plugins

We use social media plugins on our website. We use the “double-click solution” – c’t action. When downloading our website, personal data will not be transferred to plug-in providers. Next to the logo or brand of the social network, there is a slider that allows you to activate the plug-in with one click. After activation, the social network provider receives information that you have access to our website and your personal data is transferred to the plug-in provider and stored there. These are third-party cookies. For some providers, such as Facebook and XING, their IP addresses will be anonymized as soon as they are downloaded.

The collected user data stores the plug-in provider as usage profiles. They are used for advertising, market research and/or website customization. This evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to display demand-oriented adverts and to inform other users of the social network about the user’s activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, but you should ask the right plug-in provider to exercise this right.

The legal basis for using plugins is our legitimate interest in improving and optimizing our website by increasing our awareness through social networks and the ability to interact with you and users through social networks in accordance with art. 6 clause 1 point 1 lit. f) of the GDPR.

We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations. We are also not aware of the scope of data collection, the purpose of processing and storage periods. We also do not have any information to delete the collected data by the plug-in provider.

We refer to relevant privacy policies of social networks regarding the purpose and scope of data collection and processing. In addition, you will also find information about your rights and options to protect your personal data.

 

Security measures

We also use the latest technical and organizational security measures to ensure compliance with data protection regulations and to protect data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties.
