I. General Information about Data Processing
1. Extent of the processing of personal information
Principally, we collect and utilize our users’ personal information only to the extent necessary for the processing of contracts and inquiries related to them. After the contractual obligations have been fulfilled, personal information shall be processed only after consent for this has been granted. Exceptions apply in such cases, in which prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons or if the processing of this information is permitted by law.
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Requests and inquiries can be directed to us using the E-mail addresses found on our homepage. The information submitted in these E-mails shall only be used to fulfill your request or inquiry and any legal provisions resulting therefrom. In doing so, it might be necessary to share personal information with a third party.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Section 6 (1) lit. a of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) shall serve as legal basis, provided that we receive the consent for the processing of personal data from the data subject.
Section 6 (1) lit. b of the GDPR shall serve as legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the fulfillment of a contract, when the data subject is a party to the contract. This shall also apply to the processing of personal information necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures.
Section 6 (1) lit. c GDPR shall serve as legal basis, provided that the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject.
If the processing of data is necessary for the preservation of our enterprise’s legitimate interests or those of a third party and these override the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, then Sec. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for such data processing.
3. Data erasure and duration of storage
The data subject’s personal data shall be erased or made unavailable as soon as the purpose for which it was processed ceases to exist. Personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as this is required by the EU or national legislators, the laws or other regulations to which we are subject. Data shall also be made unavailable or erased when the determined standard for mandatory retention has expired unless there is a necessity for continued retention of the data for the purpose of the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

This information will also be stored in our system’s log files. This information shall not be stored together with any other personal data of the user.
2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of information and the log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by our system is necessary in order to enable the delivery of the content of our website to the user’s computer. To this purpose, the user’s IP address remains stored for the duration of the visit.
Storage in our log file is to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, this information serves towards optimizing the website and ensuring the security of our information technology systems. Within this context, information will not be analyzed for marketing purposes.
Our legitimate interests in data processing pursuant to Sec. 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR lie also in within these purposes.
4. Storage duration
Information shall be erased as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose for which it was collected. This shall also apply to the end of a session where data is collected in order to make the website available.
In the event that data is stored in the log files, erasure shall take place within a time period of no more than seven days. The storage of information is possible beyond this period. In such a case, the user’s IP address shall be erased or modified so that it is no longer possible to identify the visiting client.
5. Options to object and remove
The collection of information in order to make the website available and the storage of this information in log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. As a result, there is no option for lodging an objection on the part of the user.
