Cookies / SessionStorage / LocalStorage

Some of the websites use so-called cookies, LocalStorage and SessionStorage. This serves to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Local Storage and SessionStorage is a technology that your browser uses to store data on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are text files that are stored and saved on a computer system via an Internet browser. You can prevent the use of cookies, LocalStorage and SessionStorage by making the appropriate settings in your browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, users of this website can provide more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

A cookie can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, under certain circumstances not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

Collection of general data and information

The website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, no conclusions are drawn about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by us on the one hand and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Registration on our website

The data subject has the option of registering on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing results from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for their own purposes. The controller can arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use, which is attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet service provider (ISP), the date and the time of registration are also saved. This data is stored against the background that the misuse of our services can only be prevented in this way and, if necessary, this data enables crimes committed to be investigated. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the data controller. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on is used for criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject with the voluntary provision of personal data serves the data controller to offer the data subject content or services that, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data base of the controller.

The person responsible for processing will provide each data subject with information on what personal data about the data subject is stored at any time on request. Furthermore, the person responsible for processing corrects or deletes personal data at the request or advice of the data subject, provided that there are no statutory retention requirements. The entire staff of the controller is available to the data subject as a contact person in this context.

Contact option via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

Comment function in the blog on the website

We offer users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal that is usually listed on a website and can be viewed publicly, in which one or more people, called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject are saved and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet service provider (ISP) is also logged. This IP address is saved for security reasons and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties by posting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for the processing, so that he could, if necessary, exculpate himself in the event of an infringement. The personal data collected will not be passed on to third parties unless such transfer is required by law or serves to defend the rights of the controller.

Gravatar

The Gravatar Service from Auttomatic is used for comments. Gravatar compares your email address and - if you are registered there - displays your avatar picture next to the comment. If you are not registered, no picture will be displayed. Please note that all registered WordPress users are also automatically registered with Gravatar.

Furthermore, when exercising their right to data portability in accordance with Art. 20 Para. 1 GDPR, the data subject has the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one person responsible to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and if so this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other people.

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible or (2) it takes place with the express consent of the data subject, we take the appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests to protect the data subject, which includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state their own position and to contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise their right to withdraw consent, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time.

Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 Ilit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art 6 Ilit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Ilit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. Then processing would be based on Art. 6 Ilit. d GDPR are based.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 Ilit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

The processing of personal data is based on Article 6 Ilit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.

Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contracting party).
Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned.
Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

Existing automated decision making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
