General Information on Data ProcessingBack to contents

Scope of Processing of Personal DataBack to contents

We only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place usually only after consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal DataBack to contents

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Data Erasure and Storage PeriodBack to contents

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires.

  4. The IP address of the user
  5. Date and time of access
  6. Websites from which the user's system reaches our website
  7. Websites accessed by the user's system via our website
  8. The system user ID for logged in users

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. If the user is a registered user of the system and currently logged in then the ID of the user is also stored.

Legal Basis for Data ProcessingBack to contents

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Purpose of Data ProcessingBack to contents

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case after 12 months. The period may be extended if there was an incident during that period that requires the analysis of log files. Log files might also reside in backups. The storage period for backups is as longs as required for data security reasons.

Possibility of Objection and EliminationBack to contents

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

Even after conclusion of the contract, it may still be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to fulfil contractual, warranty or legal obligations.

Data might reside on backups as long as deemed necessary for data security reasons.
