Thank you for visiting our website. We take the protection of your data seriously and hope that you feel comfortable considering our data processing. All our specifications comply with the German Data Protection Act and the GDPR. We hereby inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of the processing and collection of personal data (here in after referred to as “data”). Personal data is all data about your person, which includes, for example, your name, address, e-mail address or your user behaviour. This data protection declaration applies to all operations in which data is processed, both within the scope of our sales activities and for the online media provided to us.
As a rule, we only use the data transmitted by you to fulfil (pre-) contractual services, including consulting, software and design development and consulting and maintenance services in this area, project planning, IT and server administration as well as other business and performance-related processes in accordance with the GDPRand the Federal Data Protection Act. Insofar as we use third-party providers to provide our services, the data protection notices of the respective third-party providers apply.
According to the GDPR, you are entitled to the following rights, which you can assert at any time with the controller named in Section 1 of this data protection declaration:
You have the right to request information from us about which data we process from you.
You have the right to request the rectification or completion of data.
You have the right to request the erasure of your data.
In certain cases, you have the right to request that we process your data only to a limited extent.
You have the right to request that we transmit your data to you or another controller in a commonly used and machine-readable format.
You have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority.
You have the right to revoke your consent to data processing at anytime.
You have the right to object at anytime to the processing of your data, which is based on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 bed. f GDPR to lodge an objection. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate to you that compelling legitimate reasons for data processing outweigh your interests and rights.
Regardless of the above, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes.
Please send your objection to the contact address of the person responsible above.
We will delete your data if we no longer need it or if you tell us to do so. This means that – unless otherwise stated in the individual data protection notices of this data protection declaration – we will delete your data if the purpose of the data processing has ceased to exist and the respective legal basis mentioned in the individual data protection no longer exists, if you exercise your right of revocation and no other legal basis for processing within the meaning of Art. 6para. 1bed. b-f DSGVO intervenes if you exercise your right to object and if there are no compelling reasons worthy of protection against deletion.
However, insofar as we (certain parts) need to retain your data for other purposes, such as tax retention periods (usually 6 years for business correspondence or 10 years for booking receipts) or the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims arising from contractual relationships (up to 4 years) or the data is necessary to protect the privacy of the user. If the rights of another natural or legal person are used, we will delete (the part) your data only after the expiry of these periods. Until the expiry of these periods, however, we limit the processing of this data to these purposes (fulfilment of retention obligations).
When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transmitted from an internet server to your browser and stored on its hard disk. Only the Internet Protocol address is stored here – no personal data. This information, which is stored in the cookies, allows you to be automatically recognised the next time you visit our website, which makes it easier for you to use it. For example, cookies allow us to optimize the website for your needs or to store your password so that you do not have to enter it every time.
We use a provider on whose server our Internet pages are stored and made available for retrieval on the Internet(hosting) to maintain our Internet pages. Hereby, the provider may process all data transmitted via the browser you use, which is generated when you use our Internet pages. This includes, in particular, your IP-address, which the provider needs in order to be able to deliver our online offer to the browser you are using, as well as all entries made by you via our website.
You have the opportunity to register on our online media to create a user account. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide personal data resulting from the input mask. The data requested there include in particular your name, your e-mail address, if applicable, a username and password. This data is stored and processed by us in order to set up a user account for you and to enable (repeated) registration. The data maybe changed or deleted at any time by you. The data will not be passed on to third parties unless this serves the technical and organisational processing of the existing user agreement between us. To protect you and us from abusive registrations, we store the IP address assigned to you at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration.
We use services to play Internet advertising. Certain user data is collected via the services we use by means of a cookie or pixel. This includes, in particular, the information from which website you came to our website (so-called referrers), which pages of our website you accessed, how long you visited our pages and which interactions you made there.
We regularly send out a newsletter to inform our customers and business partners and interested parties about our offers and related news. You have the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter on our website and to consent to receive the newsletter when registering. When you subscribe to our newsletter, you must provide your e-mail address. We store the e-mail address in order to be able to send you the newsletter. The provision of further data such as title or name is voluntary and is used to address you personally. As soon as you register for our newsletter, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address provided during the registration in the so-called double opt-in procedure. This e-mail contains a link. By clicking on this link, you confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter.
If you have consented to this, we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this purpose, tracking pixels and tracking links are included in our newsletter. This enables us to recognise whether and when you have opened the newsletter and whether and which links you have clicked on in the newsletter.
We process personal data for our advertising communication by e-mail, post or telephone. You may object to receiving our advertising measures at any time or revoke your prior consent to receiving our advertising communications at anytime. In order to be able to prove that your consent was given even after your objection or revocation in case of doubt, we may store your data for up to 4 years after your objection or revocation. We will no longer use your data for other purposes after your objection/revocation. If you want us to delete your data beforehand, we will do so after you have confirmed that you originally gave us your consent.
We have put in place technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees and service providers working for us are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security measures are subject to a continuous process of improvement and our privacy statements are constantly revised. Please make sure you have the latest version.
