Privacy statement – GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
We appreciate your interest in our website. Data protection is very important to us and therefore it is generally possible to use our Internet site without providing any personal data. Should you wish to use special services via our Internet site, processing of personal data may however become necessary. Should the processing of personal data be necessary and should no legal basis be present for such processing, we generally obtain consent.
The processing of personal data, such as name, address, email address or telephone number always takes place in accordance with the GDPR and the country-specific data protection provisions which apply.
We have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures in order to ensure the greatest possible degree of protection of the personal data which is processed via this Internet site. However, Internet-based data transfers generally contain security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to provide us with personal data via other channels, for example by telephone.

3. Recording of general data and information
Our Internet site records a large quantity of general data and information when it is accessed. This process is undertaken either by us or by an automated system. This general data and information is saved in the logfiles of the server. The following can be recorded: (1) browser types and versions used, (2), the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the Internet site from which the accessing system comes across our Internet site – so called referrer, (4) the sub websites which are managed via an accessing system on our Internet site, (5) the date and time of accessing the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol – IP address, (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serves the purpose of defending against dangers, should our IT systems be attacked.

Rather this information is required in order to (1) correctly display the contents of our Internet site, (2) optimise the contents of our Internet site, (3) ensure the continued functional capability of our IT systems and the technology of our Internet site and (4) provide the necessary information to prosecution authorities which is necessary to bring criminal prosecutions in case of a cyber-attack. This data and information which is gathered anonymously is therefore evaluated by us statistically and also with the objective of increasing data protection and data security, in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data which is processed by us. The anonymous data of the logfiles is saved separately from all personal data which is entered.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc. The purpose is the analysis of visitor traffic on our Internet site. Google uses the data and information which is obtained in order to evaluate the use of our website and to compile online reports for us, amongst others.
Google Analytics sets a cookie in your browser. By means of the setting of the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time a website in which a Google Analytics component is integrated is accessed, the Internet browser is automatically instructed to send data to Google. No personal data is transferred to Google during this process. The IP address gathered by us is only passed on to Google once it has been anonymised.

8. Legal basis of the processing
We process and use your data in order to perform the contract and provide our services, in order to improve our services and websites and to adjust these to your needs and in order to provide you with notifications in connection with the service.
Article 6 I Letter a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing actions where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Should the processing of personal data be necessary in order to fulfil a contract, the processing is based on Article 6 I Letter b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing actions which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in case of enquiries relating to our products or services. Should we be subject to a legal obligation by means of which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, for example in order to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 I Letter c) GDPR.
Finally, processing procedures could be based on Article 6 I Letter f) GDPR. Processing actions which are not covered by any of the legal frameworks above come under this legal basis if the processing is necessary in order to safeguard our legitimate interests or those of a third party, provided that the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the affected person do not outweigh this. Such processing actions are therefore permitted on our part in particular if they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. As a rule, a legitimate interest can be assumed if the affected person is a customer of the responsible body.
9. Statutory or contractual regulations
We will provide you with clarification in an individual case whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or under the contract or whether this is necessary in order to conclude the contract, whether an obligation to provide the personal data exists and what the consequences of non-provision of the personal data would be.
This could mean that in order to conclude a contract, it is necessary for you to provide us with personal data which is then processed by us. For example, you are obliged to provide us with personal data if we conclude a contract with you. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the affected person.
10. Existence of automated decision making / profiling
As a responsible operator of our website, we do not carry out automated decision making or profiling.
11. Links to other websites etc
Our website may contain links to other websites or to linked sites. We are neither responsible for the content of websites of other companies (third party websites) not for the procedure during the gathering of personal data. When visiting third party websites, we would recommend that you read the data protection guidelines and other relevant provisions of the website operator.
12. Changes to these data protection provisions
We reserve the right to adjust this data protection declaration, so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services into the data protection declaration, for example if new services are introduced. The new data protection declaration will then apply to your subsequent visit.
