2. Purpose of data processing, legal grounds, storage period, recipients, and third-country transfer

Depending on the purpose of processing, your data may be processed on different legal grounds. When operating our website, we are partly supported by processors who process your data on our behalf and our instructions and are thus recipients of your data (“service providers”).

In the following, we name the different purposes for which your data may be processed on our website, stating the relevant legal grounds as well as an indication of the storage period. We will also tell you whether your data is disclosed to service providers or other companies and whether a transfer of your data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) takes place.

a. Calling up our website and server logfile

To display our website on your terminal device, it is technically necessary for our web server, on which our website is hosted, to process data from you. For this purpose, we process your IP address together with information about your browser type and the version used, your operating system, your internet service provider, the date and time of your access, the website from which you accessed our website and the sub-websites you accessed in a server logfile.

The processing of your data is carried out under Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. The processing of your IP address is necessary to protect our legitimate interests in the retrievability and correct presentation of our website. The additional storage of your data in a server logfile serves to protect our legitimate interests in operating our website securely and error-free and to be able to detect, limit and eliminate malfunctions and errors.

Your data in our server logfile will be automatically deleted 30 days after visiting our website.

b. Contact

On our website, we give you the opportunity to contact us on various topics.

If you contact us using our contact form, the mandatory information you must provide is marked as such. This information is required to process your request. All other information is voluntary and only serves to answer your inquiry more precisely. In addition, you can contact us by telephone, e-mail, mail or fax. The data we process from you in this context may vary depending on the communication channel, but will regularly include your first and last name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and fax number.

If your contact is directed towards the conclusion of a contract or is related to a contract, we process your data based on Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR. If your contact is of a general nature, we process your data according to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR based on our legitimate interests in answering your inquiry about our company and/or our offers individually and as best as possible.

We delete your data connected to a contractual relationship, only after the expiry of commercial or tax retention periods if necessary, which can be up to 6 years. These periods regularly begin at the end of the year in which you contacted us. We delete all other data when your inquiry has finally clarified, and we are not subject to any legal obligation to retain the corresponding data.

c. Newsletter

If you register for our newsletter on our website, we process your e-mail address as the only mandatory data. We need this for sending the newsletter. The provision of further data is voluntary.

The legal grounds for the data processing associated with the dispatch of the newsletter is Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. In addition, we analyse your reading behaviour with regard to the newsletter, therefore we need to process your IP address and information about the browser and your system. By using this specific technology, we are able to know whether you have opened the newsletter, when you opened it, and which links you clicked. The analysis of your usage behaviour of our newsletter is based on Art. 6 (f)(a) GDPR.

We delete your data processed by us in connection with the sending of our newsletter upon revocation of your consent to receive the newsletter, but not before the expiry of statutory limitation periods in connection with the sending of the newsletter.

In order to be able to offer you our e-mail newsletter we rely on the support of service providers who process your Data exclusively on our behalf and according to our instructions. This involves a transfer of your Data to areas outside the European Economic Area, including the USA. An adequacy decision in the sense of Art. 45 GDPR does not exist for this Data transfer. We have therefore concluded the so-called standard data protection clauses with the aforementioned service provider, which continue to be valid even after the decision of the European Court of Justice (Case C-311/18). The transfer of your Data is therefore based on Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c GDPR.
