However, we would like to point out that data transmission over the internet is generally subject to security risks. Complete protection against access by third parties is not possible. You may contact us by post or telephone about using our website if you have any data privacy concerns.

B. Processing of personal data; Intention; Deletion
Personal information includes all information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. An identifiable person is a natural person who directly or indirectly can be defined, in particular, by means of assignment of a name, an identification number, location data, an online-identifier or one or more specific features, which are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetical, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in relation to personal data, such as the collection, organisation, categorisation, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, retrieval, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or any other form of provision, synchronisation or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction of data.
The use of this website is possible anonymously, that is to say that no information about your person can be processed by us. Exceptions exist only in cases where your browser may not transmit anonymous (personal) data on its own accord. In so far as nothing to the contrary is mentioned in the following, our legal basis for the processing of such personal data that concerns you is Article 6, Para. 1, Sentence 1b) General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter GDPR), because data processing is necessary for the provision of the functions of the website as requested by you.
When accessing our website, we collect, store and use the following, normally anonymous data, short-term:
- the website visited
- time website was accessed
- the URL of the websites on which the user was directly prior to our website
- the number of data sent in bytes
- the user’s browser and browser version
- the user’s operating system
- the user’s IP address
We do not use these data in any way to identify you or to draw conclusions about your person. These data are stored on our server log files for a limited time. These data merely serve to enable our website to be displayed correctly, to conduct anonymous statistical analyses, to improve our website, to detect and trace technical errors on the website and, in case of unauthorised access or access attempts on our server, to initiate a derivation of personal data. We base our justification on Article 6, Para. 1 f) of the GDPR for cases such as these. After having achieved the purpose for which the data was stored, the data is routinely deleted or, if legal regulations or justified interests prevent deletion, blocked.
Personal data that you transmit to us online is only processed if it is necessary for the justification, implementation, termination or settlement of a contractual relationship between ourselves and you, or to answer any questions you may have. The following data are processed regularly by us in such cases:
- Name and surname
- Address, email address, fax and/ or telephone number
- Reason for contact
- Contract information (if applicable)
- Documents transmitted by you (if applicable)
- Information you provided verbally (if applicable)
As a rule, we do not pass on your personal data to third parties. This, however, does not apply to third parties who help us with contractual relationship transactions, such as the transport company charged with deliveries, or the bank entrusted with payment matters, as well as PayPal, if applicable. Also exempted are necessary data transmissions to accountants and the tax authorities. When data is transmitted to the third parties mentioned above, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the necessary minimum.
We will delete the aforementioned personal data after the purpose for which they were processed has been achieved, unless we are required by law to store them for a longer period of time for tax and/or commercial storage and documentation obligations in accordance with Article 6, Para. 1, Sentence 1c) of the GDPR. This also applies if you have consented to further storage in accordance with Article 6, Para. 1, Sentence 1a) of the GDPR, or unless we need the data to protect our own legitimate interests or those of a third party and your fundamental rights or liberties do not outweigh our interests.
