II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we only process personal data of users to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of users regularly only takes place with the consent of the user. An exception applies in such cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for valid reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

2. Legal basis for processing personal data

Regularly, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter A of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing personal data of our users. Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required to fulfill a contract. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is the subject, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if those interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interests previously listed, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis.

3. Retention policy

Unless indicated otherwise at the time of the collection of your personal data (e.g. within a form completed by you), we erase or block your personal data if the retention of that personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed, or to comply with legal obligations (such as retention obligations under tax or commercial laws).

III. Online offerings and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Each time our online services are being accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system accessing it. The following data is being collected:

(a) Information about the browser type and version used
(b) User's operating system
(c) Amount of data sent in bytes
(d) User's IP address
(e) Date and time of access
(f) Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
(g) Websites accessed by the user's system through our website

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Processing of personal data - Legal Basis

The legal basis for the processing of data is Article 6 (1) (f) General Data Protection Regulation.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must be saved for the duration of the session. Storage in log files takes place to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. Our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR is the legal basis to process this data.

4. Retention period

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. For any data stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. In some cases, storage of this data is possible for a longer period of time. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that it is no longer possible to assign the calling client.

5. Possibility of objection and erasure

The collection of data to provide our online offerings and the storage of the data in log files is necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection.

IV. Use of cookies

1. Description and scope of data processing

Our website may use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored with the internet browser or by the internet browser on the user's computer system. If a user makes use of a website, a cookie can be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string that enables the browser to be clearly identified when the website is being used again.

In case we collect personal data through cookies, we use technical measures to anonymize this data. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Processing of personal data - Legal Basis

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR if the user has given their consent.

3. Retention period, Possibility of objection and erasure

Cookies are stored on a user’s computer and transmitted to our website. Therefore, as a user, you also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been stored on your system can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

V. Analytics

This website uses Matomo, a self-hosted open source software, to collect anonymous usage data for this website.

Visitor data is collected to identify any issues such as pages not found, search engine problems, or unpopular pages. As soon as the data (number of visitors who see error pages or only one page, etc.) is processed, Matomo generates reports for us as the website operator so that we can take proper action.

In particular, Matomo processes the following data:

  • Cookies
  • Anonymized IP addresses
  • Pseudo-anonymized location (based on the anonymized IP address)
  • Date and Time
  • Title of the page access
  • URL of the page accessed
  • URL of the previous page (if possible)
  • Screen resolution
  • Local time
  • Files opened and downloaded
  • External links
  • Duration of page loading
  • Country, Region, City (with low accuracy due to IP address)
  • Main browser language
  • Browser user agent
  • Interactions with forms (but not their content)


The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Your data will only be used to improve website usage.

VI. Forms

Data transmitted via a form will be stored, including your contact details, in order to be able to process your request or to be available for follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.

The data entered in a form is processed exclusively with your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent that you have already given at any time. An email message is sufficient to cancel any further processing this data. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected.

Data transmitted via the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent or there is no longer any need for storing this data. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

VII. Your rights

The data protection laws in the jurisdiction in which you reside may entitle you to specific rights in relation to your personal data.

In particular, and subject to the legal requirements, you may be entitled to:

  • Obtain from us confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed, and where that is the case, access to the personal data;
  • Obtain from us the correction of inaccurate personal data concerning you;
  • Obtain from us the erasure of your personal data;
  • Obtain from us restriction of processing regarding your personal data;
  • Data portability concerning personal data, which you actively provided; and;
  • Object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to further processing of personal data concerning you.
