Visitors/users of the website,
The data subjects are collectively referred to as "users".
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Below we inform you about the legal basis for the processing of personal data:
1. If we have obtained your consent for the processing of personal data, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO.
2. If the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures which are carried out at your request, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
3. If the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. statutory retention obligations), Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
4. If the processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. d) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
5. If the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not override this, then Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
Disclosure of personal data to third parties and order processors
As a matter of principle, we do not pass on any data to third parties without your consent. If this should nevertheless be the case, then the disclosure is made on the basis of the aforementioned legal grounds, e.g. in the case of the disclosure of data to online payment providers for the fulfilment of a contract or due to a court order or because of a legal obligation to hand over the data for the purpose of criminal prosecution, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
We also use processors (external service providers e.g. for web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data is passed on to the processors as part of a contract processing agreement, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. In doing so, we select our processors carefully, monitor them regularly and have been granted a right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken suitable technical and organisational measures and comply with the data protection regulations according to BDSG n.F. and DS-GVO.
Data transfer to third countries
The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) has created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data will therefore mainly be processed by companies to which the GDPR applies. However, if processing is carried out by services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, these must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination by the EU Commission of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognised special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard contractual clauses".
Insofar as we obtain your express consent to the transfer of data to the USA due to the invalidity of the so-called "Privacy Shield", in accordance with Article 49 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO, we point out in this regard the risk of secret access by US authorities and the use of the data for monitoring purposes, possibly without any legal remedy for EU citizens.
Deletion of data and storage period
Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as you withdraw your consent to the processing or the purpose for the storage no longer applies or the data is no longer required for the purpose, unless their continued storage is required for evidence purposes or is contrary to statutory retention obligations. This includes, for example, retention obligations under commercial law for business letters in accordance with § 257 para. 1 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) (6 years) and retention obligations under tax law for receipts in accordance with § 147 para. 1 of the German Fiscal Code (AO) (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless the storage is still necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
Existence of automated decision making
We do not use automated decision making or profiling.
