Personal data

 

Personal data refers to any individual data concerning the personal or circumstantial situation of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your real name, address, email address, company, address, phone number, and other information about you or your business. Personal information may include data which is publicly accessible.

 

General information on data processing

 

We only collect and use personal data of our users to the extent strictly necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. We collect and use the personal data of our users only with the user's consent. An exception applies in such cases where prior consent cannot be obtained due to circumstantial reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

 

Legal bases for the processing of your data:

 

  • Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject to process personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
  • For the processing of personal data for our own purposes, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of GDPR serves as legal basis.

 

Collection and processing of personal data

 

When you visit our website, our web server stores the connection data of the querying computer by default for the purpose of system safety:

 

  • IP address of the terminal device through which the online service is accessed;
  • Our websites that you visit;
  • The date and duration of the visit;
  • The identification data of the browser and operating system type used as well as the website from which you visit us.
  • The https status code (e.g. "Request successful" or "Cannot find requested file").

 

Additional personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, or email address is not collected unless these details are provided by you voluntarily, for example as part of registration or a request for information in the contact form.

 

Service provider

 

We engage service providers with tasks such as marketing services, programming, and data hosting. We have carefully selected these service providers and monitor them regularly, especially their careful management and protection of the data stored at their sites. We require all service providers to maintain confidentiality and comply with the legal requirements.

 

Personal data are not transferred to third parties

 

We use the personal data you provide us solely for the purpose of fulfilling your requests; that is, in general to process and to respond to your request. We do not use this data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes. Your personal data are not transferred, sold, or transmitted in any other way to third parties.

 

A data transfer to a third country outside the European Union, which is not a contracting party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, occurs only if this data transfer is necessary for the performance of an existing contract between you and us (e.g., delivery to a third country).

 

Duration of storage; retention periods

 

We always store your data as long as is necessary to provide our online services and related services, and/or we have a legitimate interest in the further storage. We then delete your personal data with the exception of such data that we are required to continue to store to meet legal obligations (e.g., we are obliged to retain documents such as contracts and invoices for a certain period of time due to retention requirements under tax and commercial law).

 

Contact form

 

If a user makes use of this option, the data entered in the input screen will be transmitted to us and stored. The following data are also stored at the time the message is sent: IP address, date, and time. For the sending process, your consent is obtained for processing the data and reference is made to this Privacy Policy. Thus, the data entered in the contact form will only be processed with your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of GDPR). You may revoke your consent at any time. To do so, an informal message sent to us by email is sufficient. The legality of the processing of data that has already occurred before revocation remains unaffected. Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the personal data that are transmitted along with the email will be stored. No data will be transferred to third parties in this context. The data are used exclusively for processing the conversation.

 

Data security

 

We will take all technical and administrative measures necessary to protect your personal data against loss and misuse. Your data are stored in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to the public. Should you want to contact us by email, we would like to advise you that the confidentiality of the transmitted information cannot be guaranteed. The content of your email can be viewed by third parties. We therefore recommend that you send us confidential information exclusively by mail. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for achieving the purpose for which they were collected. If the user contacts us by email, he/she may object to the storage of his/her personal data at any time. In this case, the conversation cannot be continued. For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, this site uses SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection if the browser's address line changes from "http://" to https:// and by the lock icon in your browser line.

 

When SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

Newsletter

 

For sending our newsletter, you can log in through a double opt-in procedure on our website. If you give us your separate consent, we will send email newsletters with advertising information to you. Our newsletters contain information about our range of services, promotions, events, and reports/articles. After registration, the person concerned will receive a confirmation email in which an activation link must be confirmed to complete the registration. When you register for our newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This storage only serves as proof in the event that a third party abuses your email address to register it to receive the newsletter without your knowledge or your authorization. Personal data that were collected additionally during the sending process will be deleted no later than after a period of seven days. Should you wish to no longer receive any newsletters from us at a later time, you can object at any time.

Technically necessary cookies

 

Our website uses essential cookies, without which the technical provision of the online service cannot be ensured. These include, for example, cookies that store data to ensure the smooth playback of video or audio content.

 

These cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your session.

 

Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies. Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g., shopping basket function) are stored under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of GDPR. The website owner has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g., cookies to analyze your browsing behavior) are stored, they are treated separately in this Privacy Policy.

 

Technically unnecessary cookies and tracking mechanisms

This cookie is set under Article 6, paragraph 1 lit. f of GDPR.

 

Managing your settings for technically unnecessary cookies and tracking mechanisms

 

When you visit our internet sites, you are asked in a cookie layer if you give us permission to use marketing cookies and/or tracking mechanisms. In our Cookie Information, we inform you about the purpose for which these cookies are used, who are the providers, and how long is the lifetime of these cookies. In the privacy settings, you can revoke your given permissions effective for the future or give us your consent at a later date. Please note that when using the tools, your data may be transferred to recipients outside the GDPR, if applicable, where no adequate level of data protection in accordance with GDPR exists.

After clicking on these links, we no longer have any influence on the collection, processing, and use of the personal data transferred by clicking the link. We cannot assume any responsibility for the processing of such personal data by third parties.

Legal right of appeal

 

You have the right

 

to request confirmation by the data controller as to whether personal data in question are processed; if this is the case, you have a right to receive information about these personal data and to the information individually specified in Art. 15 of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

 

The data subject has the right to request that the data controller correct incorrect personal data concerning him/her and, if applicable, complete incomplete personal data (Art. 16 of GDPR) without delay.

 

The data subject has the right to request that the data controller delete personal data concerning him/her without delay if one of the reasons specified in Article 17 of GDPR applies, e.g. if the data are no longer required for the intended purposes (right to deletion).

 

The data subject has the right to request that the data controller restrict processing for the duration of the data controller's investigation if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 of GDPR is met, e.g. if the data subject has objected to processing.

 

Every data subject has the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, notwithstanding any other administrative or judicial remedy, if the data subject considers that the processing of the personal data concerning him/her violates GDPR (Article 77 of GDPR). The data subject may exercise this right before a supervisory authority in the member state in which he/she resides or works or in which the suspected infringement took place.

 

You have the right to data portability. You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only take place to the extent that it is technically feasible.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can prove compelling, legitimate reasons for processing, which outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms, or unless processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.
