B) Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data
1.) Personal data is such information which can be used to find out personal or factual circumstances (such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address). We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as this is permissible or ordered according to the DSGVO, the German Data Protection Law (German: Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) or other European or German legal provisions or when the concerned party has given consent hereto. The general use of our website is possible without providing your personal data – as far personal data will be collected, this is on a voluntary basis only.
2.) Your visit to our website is automatically logged. The IP address currently used by your PC, date and time, the browser type and operating system of your PC and the pages you are viewing are recorded. A reference to individuals is not possible. No other evaluation of the data, with the exception for statistical purposes in anonymous form, will occur.
The system must temporarily store the IP address in order to transmit the website to the visitor’s computer. For this purpose, it is also necessary to keep the IP address stored for the duration of the session. The resulting storage of data in log files is done to ensure the functionality of our website and to adapt it to the requirements of our visitors. We have listed under B) 5. how we use and process the data in detail (see below).
3.) Provided that a visitor of our website registers for personalized services (e.g. ordering a newsletter, requests for information etc.), we ask for certain contact details or other personal data. The user is free to decide whether or not to provide this data.
4.) Legal basis for the processing of personal data, provided that prior consent of the concerned person has been obtained, results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO; insofar as the processing is based on the fulfilment of a legal obligation, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.
In special cases in which the vital interests of the concerned party (or another natural person) require the processing of personal data, the legal basis for this results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO. If processing is necessary for the protection of the legal interests of our company or third parties and the interests of the concerned party predominate, taking into account his fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms, the legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
5.) In the context of using this website, your personal data will be processed by us primarily for the following purposes:
– to provide information, respond to contact requests etc. via the contact form (by E-Mail)
C) Deletion of Data and Storage Period
The personal data collected by us will be deleted as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply (deviating from this only if continuous storage is stipulated in a statutory provision, possibly for data processing). Deletion or blocking of data shall take place at the latest when the legally prescribed storage period expires, provided that there is no necessity for further storage of the data in order to conclude a contract or to fulfil a contractual relationship.

D3) Right to Restrict Processing and Right to Object
