(1) This data privacy statement gives an overview, which information is collected or stored when you visit our website and how it is used. This statement also explains how to verify the accuracy of the personal information we hold about you and how to delete, block or update such personal information in our database.

(2) Basically, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for a functioning website and for our content and services. Further uses are listed in the following regulations. The processing of personal data of our users takes place only with the consent of the use regularly. An exception applies, if it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and data processing is permitted by law.

(3) Legal basis for processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of his or her personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR is the legal basis. In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR is the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations, which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as data processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation, Art. 6 (1)(c) GDPR is legal the basis. In case data processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR is the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR is the legal basis for the data processing.

(4) Erasure of personal data and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted. In addition, such storage may be provided because the European or national legislator set such in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the regulations mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further data storage for conclusion of a contract or performance of the contract. Due to legal requirements, especially for tax purposes, we may be obliged to store your data beyond the period of your use of our website. However, we will only store the data to the extent required, taking into account the statutory provisions.

(5) Transfer of personal data

If your data is transferred to other companies or subcontractors, this will only be done in compliance with the present data protection regulations and the statutory provisions as well as to fulfil the contractual obligations, e.g. the provider can see corresponding statistical data, if necessary. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties outside the company without your explicit consent. External service providers, who process data on our behalf, are contractually obliged. These service providers are especially prohibited from using your data for other than the original underlying purposes. We will provide third parties with further data than provided by you, in particular to such data you have made available to us just for handling of the contract for internal purposes, only in case of a corresponding statutory obligation or to safeguard legitimate interests.

(6) Data storage location

Your data will be processed on servers located in Germany and thus within the scope of the EU level of data protection. We must point out any exemptions according to no. 3 of these regulations.
