2. Processing framework
2.1 Processing framework: Website
As part of the website, we process the personal data from you detailed below in section 4. We only process data from you that you actively provide on the website (e.g. by filling in forms) or that you provide automatically when using our services.
Your data will only be processed by us and will not be sold, lent or passed on to third parties. If we use the help of external service providers to process your personal data, this is done within the framework of so-called commissioned processing, in which we as the client are authorised to issue instructions to our contractors. If external service providers are used for individual processing operations listed in section IV, they will be named there.
As a matter of principle, we do not transfer data to third countries and do not plan to do so. We will provide information on exceptions to this principle in the processing operations described below. Any data transfer to third countries will then take place on the basis of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.
3. Personal data
In principle, you can visit and use our website without providing personal data (e.g. name, address and telephone number). For the use of certain functions of our website, however, it is necessary to provide personal data. Please note the following information. The personal data is always collected and processed by us in compliance with the statutory provisions, in particular the DSGVO.
4. The processing in detail
4.1 Provision of the website and server log files
4.1.1 Description of the processing
Each time the website is called up, we automatically collect information that your browser transmits to our server. This is the following data:
– IP address
– browser software used, as well as its version and language
– the sub-pages called up on the website
– the date and time the website was called up
These are also stored in the so-called log files of our system. The temporary storage of your IP address by the system is necessary in order to be able to deliver our website to a user's terminal device. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. However, your IP address is not stored in the log files.
The processing is carried out to enable the website to be called up and to ensure its stability and security. Furthermore, the processing serves the statistical evaluation and improvement of our online offer.
4.1.3 Legal basis
The processing is necessary to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in section 4.1.2.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. The log files are deleted after 7 days.
You can find out which cookies are used on our website for which purpose, how long they are stored on your end device and which consents you may have already declared in the settings of the Consent Tool.
With regard to technically required cookies, as well as the use of the Consent Tool, the processing is necessary to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO).
When third-party cookies are used, data may be transmitted to the corresponding providers of these third-party services. In this case, data may also be transmitted to third countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. We provide information about the recipients of data and the transfer of data to third countries in the settings of the Consent Tool or in the corresponding section on the third-party service in these data protection provisions.
4.3 Contacting us by e-mail
To contact us, you can write to us via the e-mail address provided on the website. In this case, the personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be processed by us.
The data transmitted with and in your e-mail will be used exclusively for the purpose of processing and responding to your request.
The processing is necessary to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in section 4.3.2. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract, the data processing is carried out for the fulfilment of the contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).
We delete the data as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is usually the case when the respective communication with you has ended. The communication is deemed to have ended when it is clear from the circumstances that your concern has been conclusively clarified. If legal retention periods prevent deletion, the data will be deleted immediately after the legal retention period has expired.
4.4 Social networks
4.4.1 Description of the processing
Our website does not use any so-called social media plugins. The Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube logos displayed on our website are merely linked to the corresponding profiles of our company on the social networks. A data transfer to the social networks does not take place with the integration of the logos. If you click on one of the logos, you will only be redirected to the external website of the respective social network.
However, our profiles within the social networks do constitute data processing. If you are logged in to the respective social network when you visit such a profile, this information will be assigned to your user account there. If you interact with our profile, e.g. comment, "share" or "like" a post, this information will also be stored in your user account. As a rule, your interactions with our profile can also be viewed by us.
On the social network Facebook, we have the possibility to obtain statistical data about the use of our Facebook page via the so-called "Insights" function. These statistics are provided by Facebook. The "Insights" function cannot be disabled. We cannot decide to switch this function on or off. It is available to all Facebook Fan Page operators, regardless of whether you use Facebook's Insights feature or not. We are provided with the following data via Facebook Insights for a selectable period of time with regard to fans, subscribers, people reached and people interacting: Total page views, likes including origin, page activity, post interactions, reach, post reach (broken down into organic, viral and paid interactions), comments, shared content, replies and demographic analysis, i.e. country of origin, gender and age. In the Insights statistics, it is not possible for us to identify subscribers and fans of our page and to view their profiles.
On the social networks Facebook and Instagram, we have the possibility to obtain statistical data about the use of our Facebook page or our Instagram profile via the so-called "Insights" function. These statistics are provided by Facebook and Instagram. The "Insights" function cannot be disabled. We cannot decide to turn this feature on or off. It is available to all Facebook fan page operators and all Instagram business account operators, regardless of whether you use the Insights feature or not.
We are provided with the following data via Facebook Insights for a selectable period of time in anonymised form with regard to fans, subscribers, people reached and people interacting: Total page views, likes including origin, page activity, post interactions, reach, post reach (broken down into organic, viral and paid interactions), comments, shared content, replies and demographic analysis, i.e. country of origin, gender and age. With the Insights statistics, it is not possible for us to identify subscribers and fans of our page and to view their profiles.
Furthermore, Instagram Insights provides us with anonymised data on the development and reach of our Instagram profile and the posts, stories and videos we post there. We also receive statistical information on the place of origin, gender and age of the subscribers to our Instagram profile in the Instagram insights.
The social networks with which you communicate store your data using pseudonyms as usage profiles and use them for advertising purposes and market research. For example, you may be shown advertisements within the social network and on other third-party websites that match your presumed interests. Cookies are usually used for this purpose, which the social network stores on your end device. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and to exercise this right you must contact the social networks directly.
We maintain profiles on the aforementioned social networks for the purpose of public relations and corporate communication with customers and interested parties. We use the "Insights" function of Facebook and Instagram to evaluate the reach of our posts on the social network and to make them more appealing to our visitors in the future.
The legal basis for data processing in the context of our profiles on social networks is the protection of our overriding legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in section 4.4.2. If you are asked for consent by the respective operator of a social network, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The data processing with regard to our Facebook page and our Instagram page otherwise takes place on the basis of joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 DSGVO.
The respective social networks are operated by the companies listed below. Further information on data protection with regard to our profile on the social networks can be found in the linked data protection provisions.
The social networks also process your personal data in the USA.
