Data Privacy

Data Privacy

Purpose-Bound Data Usage
Under the principle of purpose-bound data usage, we collect, process and store personal data only for the purposes that the user has communicated to us. Without explicit consent, no further transmission of the user’s personal data to third parties will take place – unless this is necessary for the performance of the service or for the performance of the contract. Transmission to authorized state institutions and authorities is limited to those required under the statutory duty to provide information (or a court decision to provide information). Employees and service companies commissioned by us are obliged to maintain confidentiality and comply with data protection regulations.

Newsletter, Information Material Request & Contact Forms
The website visitor can make use of different forms for specific services (newsletter, information material request, and contact forms). In accordance with GDPR, the data collected in these form may be processed for the purpose of fulfilling you this service (like sending newsletter, information material, or contacting the interested party). To facilitate this, the data will be shared with third-party provider Mailchimp. The submitted data will only be used for this specific purpose and will not be shared with another third party without your explicit consent. 

Cookies
“Cookies” are small files that are stored on users’ computers. Different information can be stored on a cookie. Firstly, it is used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit to an online service. Temporary cookies (also called “session cookies” or “transient cookies”) are cookies that are deleted when a user leaves an online service and closes his browser. These cookies can, for example, save the contents of a shopping cart. Cookies that are referred to as “permanent” or “persistent” remain even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved – even if a user visits the website again after several days. “Third-party cookies” are offered by other providers than the responsible party (which operates the online service). Cookies of the responsible party are referred to as “first-party cookies”.

Both temporary and persistent cookies can be used and are explained in this privacy policy.

If a user does not want cookies to be stored on his computer, he should disable the corresponding options in the system settings of his browser. The stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. Exclusion of cookies may lead to functional restrictions of this online service.
Collection of access data and log files
The controller of the website or the hosting provider collects data on each access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files) on the basis of a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. Access data includes the name of the retrieved website, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, message about successful retrieval, type of browser including version, user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

For security reasons (e.g. for the investigation of abuse or fraud), log file information is stored for a maximum of seven days. After that, they are deleted. Data whose further retention is necessary for evidence purposes is exempted from deletion until the final clarification of the respective incident.

Type of log files and data collection
Access log files and error log files are stored on the server. These log files contain the user’s IP address and thus personal data. The following data is collected: visited website, time at the time of access, amount of data sent in bytes, source / reference from which the user reached the page, used browser, used operating system and used IP address. A contract processing contract (AVV) is concluded with the hosting provider, which meets the requirements of § 11 BDSG.

Hosting
Hosting services taken up by the controller of the website serve to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services used for the operation of this online offer.

In this context, the controller or the hosting provider processes inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of users of this online offer on the basis of a legitimate interest in an efficient and secure provision of the online offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in conjunction with Art. 28 GDPR (conclusion of a contract processing contract). 

Right to information and objection
The user has the right at any time to obtain free information about stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing. In addition, there is a right to correction, blocking or deletion of these data. Deletion can only take place if there are no legal or contractual obligations to collect data. If data has been collected on the basis of a legitimate interest, the user has the possibility of objecting to the processing.
