What is personal data?
Personal data is information that relates to you and can be used to identify you. This includes, for example, your surname, your first name, your address and your email address. Personal information may also include data from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn and other service providers.
In principle, you do not need to disclose personal data in order to be able to visit our website. In some cases, we will need your name, email address and other information to be able to provide you with the information that you have requested or to respond to your query. You will provide us with your consent in these cases. We will only store data that you have provided to us voluntarily or automatically.
How is personal data processed?
In some areas of our website, we offer you the option of getting in touch with us or using certain services. We will only store the personal data that has been provided as part of this process for the purpose for which it has been entrusted to us, such as in order to handle your query or to respond to any questions you may have. We will not pass your data on to third parties.
Third-party content such as YouTube videos, maps provided by the Google Maps service, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, as well as links to our partners’ and members’ websites, may be linked to our website. The assumption here is that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) will detect the IP address of the user, since the IP address is required for these third-party providers to be able to send the content to the relevant user’s browser. Therefore, the IP address is required in order for this content to be shown. We endeavour to only use content of this kind if its providers simply use the IP address in order to deliver the content. However, we have no control over whether third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes.
What kind of data is requested?
Where there is an option to enter personal or corporate data (email address, name, telephone numbers) within the website, the user discloses this data on an explicitly voluntary basis. Where reasonable and possible from a technical point of view, you are permitted to take advantage of all of the services on offer without having to enter data of this nature. Alternatively, you may enter anonymised data or a pseudonym. However, if you choose to enter optional data that is accurate in relation to you as an individual, you allow us to provide you with a service at a personal and individual level.
We use the latest encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS to ensure that your data is secure while it is being transmitted.
Is the confidential nature of email correspondence/contact forms guaranteed?
If you use your own email account to contact us, please note that we cannot guarantee that the information you provide will remain confidential.
If data is collected and processed via our contact form, this data will be encrypted before it is transmitted. You are welcome to send us confidential information exclusively by post.
Will data be logged during my visit?
During your visit no data will be logged.
When you visit our website, we may store some information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred by a web server to your browser and that are stored on your computer’s hard drive. No personal data is stored as part of this process; only the IP address is stored.
We use session cookies on our website. This offers the advantage that you will not have to enter your data over and over again when filling out forms. This data is not stored permanently; the cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed.
Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can stop cookies from being stored or set your browser so that it notifies you as soon as cookies are sent.
If you have disabled cookies in your browser, a session ID will be used to identify you as an individual while you are accessing our website on a continuous basis. Data will not be stored on your computer as part of this process either. The session ID will be deleted once you stop accessing our website.
How can I control how my personal data is used?
Of course, you alone are entitled to decide whether and for what purposes we may use your data. Furthermore, you alone determine whether we may use your data for consulting, advertising and market research purposes. You may withdraw, at any time, any consent that you have previously granted.
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes set out herein or as stipulated by the diverse storage periods, as specified by the legislator. Once the relevant purpose ceases to apply or once these storage periods expire, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legislation.
Do you pass my data onto third parties?
We will only use personal data for internal purposes over the course of a client relationship. We will not pass your data on to third parties without your consent. Personal data will only be collected and transferred to the state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information in accordance with the relevant legislation or to the extent that we are obliged to do so as a result of a court ruling. All employees and service providers are obliged to maintain confidentiality and to comply with data protection provisions.
What security measures have we taken?
We have taken technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All employees and service providers are obliged to maintain confidentiality and to comply with data protection provisions.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it will be encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that third parties will not be able to misuse your data. Our security measures are thereby subject to a continuous improvement process and our privacy statements are constantly revised.
Will this privacy statement also be amended?
Due to current circumstances, such as amendments to the German Federal Data Protection Act (new BDSG [BDSG-neu], GDPR), we will update this privacy statement where necessary.
How can I check, correct, revoke or delete my data?
Under the conditions of the statutory provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), you as a data subject have the following rights.

You will receive your data in a structured and machine-readable format or we will transfer the data directly to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible.

However, the right to object does not exist if overriding compelling legitimate grounds for the processing are demonstrated or the processing is carried out for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Legal basis for processing
Our company uses Art. 6 para. 1(a) GDPR as the legal basis for processing operations, whereby we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is party, which, for example, is the case with processing operations that are necessary to deliver goods or provide any other service or return service, processing is based on Art.
6 para. 1(b) GDPR. The same applies for such processing operations as required to carry out pre-contractual measures, such as where there are requests for our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that makes it necessary to process personal data, in order to fulfil fiscal obligations for example, processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1(c) GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1(f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases use this clause as a legal basis when processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. For this reason, we are permitted in particular to carry out processing operations such as these because specific reference has been made to them by the European legislator. The legislator took the view that there could be assumed to be a legitimate interest if the data subject is the client of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
