Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to the data subject (natural person), who can be identified, directly or indirectly
(e.g. name, e-mail address, or IP address). 


When you contact us by e-mail, phone, or fax, we will process the personal data you submit (e-mail, name, phone number,
fax number, your inquiry, associated documents) for the purpose of handling your inquiry.


Our website uses cookies that allow the website to recognize your browser when you visit the website again. Cookies are
small text files that the browser stores on your device. This allows the website to be optimally adapted to your interests.
If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you can set up your browser to inform you when cookies are
set so that you can decide whether to allow them on a case-by-case basis. You can also deactivate use of cookies in your

Legal basis, storage periods

Data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(a) (consent) and/or (f) (legitimate interest) GDPR. 

The processed personal data is used for statistical analysis and for the purpose of operating, safeguarding, and optimizing
the website (legitimate interest). Any other use of your personal data (e.g. sending of newsletters) only takes place with
your consent. Unless explicitly indicated otherwise at the time of the collection of your personal data (e.g. in a declaration
of consent), your personal data will be erased (or anonymized) if the retention of the personal data is no longer necessary
to fulfill the purposes for which they were collected and if no statutory retention obligations (such as tax or commercial law)
require us to further retain the data.

Transfer and disclosure of personal data

Without your consent, we will not transfer your personal data collected based on your website use to third parties unless it is
required to perform our duties or required by law/authorities.

We engage processors (service providers) to process personal data (within the scope of an IT support contract, for example).
These processors are contractually bound to comply with the applicable data protection regulations.

Your rights, contact details

Generally, you have the right of access, the right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability, and the
right to object. If processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at
any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Finally, you are entitled to file a complaint with a supervisory authority.
