General information about data processing

Extent of processing of personal data

In principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent can not be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

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

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

Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR is the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the affected person or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR is the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary for the protection of our legitimate interest or of a third party and if the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for processing.

Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the affected person will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage does no longer apply. In addition, such storage may happen if the European or national legislator requires it by EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the responsible person is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of the contract.

Legal basis for data processing

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

Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the processing of data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data for providing the website, this is the case when the respective session is completed.

In the case of storing the data in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. An additional storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

If it is necessary to retain data for the purpose of securing evidence in order to investigate acts of abuse or fraud, such data is excluded from the deletion until the relevant incident has been finally solved.

Contestation and removal options

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no contradiction on the part of the user.
