We adhere to the principles for the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 5 GDPR. Your data is processed on the basis of legality, processing in good faith and transparency:

  • for specified, clear and legitimate purposes;

If we use external service providers to perform our business processes, they receive data to the necessary extent in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. Please understand that we do not disclose the individual service providers without a given reason. However, your claims for data protection rights are comprehensively guaranteed in accordance with the specifications of order processing.

Purpose and legal basis of the processing of personal data

Data processing based on your consent (Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. a GDPR)

Provided that you have given us your consent to the processing of your personal data for specific purposes (e.g. to receive personalised advertising or for identification), the processing on this basis is legal. Consent granted can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that you have given us before the validity of the GDPR from 25 May 2018. The revocation of the consent is for the future and does not affect the legality of the data processed up to the revocation.

Data processing for legitimate interest (Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f GDPR)

We process your data in a permissible manner to safeguard our legitimate interests. This includes the use of your personal data to:

  • also inform you about our products and services;
  • carry out measures for the improvement and development of services and products to be able to offer you a customised approach and optimised services;
  • legal claims and for defence in legal disputes;
  • investigate or prevent crimes;
  • use your data anonymously for analysis purposes.

If we wish to process your personal data for a purpose not previously mentioned, we will inform you in advance in the context of the legal provisions.

Data processing for the purpose of contract initiation and settlement (Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. b GDPR)

Any further personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address, are not collected when you visit the website, unless you provide this information voluntarily, e.g. to receive a contract offer. Your details are stored to process and carry out your enquiry.

Recipient of the data/disclosure of the data/third countries

Your data may be passed on to our technical support service providers (e.g. website support providers) for the purpose of providing this website and for the previously mentioned purposes, which we have carefully selected and with which we have entered into a order processing contract. Your data is otherwise only passed on to other third parties and to third countries, provided that this is explicitly stated in this privacy policy or we are legally obliged to do so.

Retention period of the data

We store your personal data for the above-mentioned purposes. Your data is initially processed from the time of collection, provided that you or a third party provides us with it. We will delete your personal data that you have provided us with when the contractual relationship with you ceases or when you revoke your consent and all reciprocal claims are met and there is no other statutory retention or legal justification for storage.
