Privacy policy

Protecting your data is our utmost concern
We are delighted that you are interested in our company and our products and services, and would like you to feel secure when visiting our website in terms of the protection of your personal data. This is because we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Compliance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) is for us a matter of course.
We would like you to know when we collect which data and how we use it. We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that we are in compliance with the data protection regulations.

Personal data
You do not have to disclose any personal data to use our website. In certain cases (enquiries) we will require your name and your e-mail address, as well as some further information that will allow us to provide the desired services.
The same applies, for example, if we have to send information material or answer individual questions. Where this is necessary we will inform you accordingly. In addition to this, we only store and process data that you provide voluntarily or automatically.

Intended purpose of personal data
We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Data Protection Act (BDSG)

  1. to fulfil our contractual obligations (Art. 6 para1b GDPR)
    The personal data provided by you is generally used to respond to your enquiries, process your orders, or give you access to certain information or offers. If you avail of our services, we will only collect the data that we need to provide such services. If we ask you for any further information, this shall be on a voluntary basis. We only process personal data for the fulfilment of the required service and to protect our own justified business interests.

    Please refer to the relevant contractual documents and terms and conditions for further details on the purpose of the data processing.

  2. for the purpose of balancing interests (Art.6 para 1f GDPR)
    Insofar as necessary, we shall, beyond processing your data for actually performing the contract, process your data for the purpose of protecting our legitimate interests or those of third parties, e.g. granting IT use/security. For organizational and technical reasons, the following data is stored when our website is used: the names of the pages called up, the browser used and the operating system, date and time of access, search engines used and your IP address.
    We evaluate this technical data anonymously and exclusively for statistical purposes in order to constantly optimize our website and make it even more attractive. This data is stored on secured systems separately from other personal information.
    Cookies: Cookies are small text files sent by a web server to your browser and stored on the hard disc of your computer. This does not apply to our website because we do not use cookies.

    In cultivating customer relationships it may also be necessary to use this personal data to inform you about products that would be useful to your business in order to meet the demands and requirements of our clients.

  3. as a result of your consent (Art. 6 para 1a GDPR)
    Insofar as you have consented to having your personal data processed for certain purposes (e.g. photographs at events, sending of newsletters), this processing will be lawful on the basis of your consent. Consent given may be revoked at any time. This also applies to revocation of any declarations of consent issued to us prior to the entry into effect of the GDPR (i.e. before 25 May 2018). The revocation of consent will only be effective for the future. It will not affect any processing carried out prior to revocation.

  4. as a result of legal obligations (Art. 6 para 1c GDPR) or in the public interest (Art. 6 para 1 e GDPR)
    Extensive documentation and retention requirements that we must fulfil may ensue from legal provisions under trade or fiscal law.

Purpose-specific use of personal data
We will only collect, store and use the personal data provided by you online for the purposes specified. Your personal data will not be passed on to any third party without your written consent.
All of our staff are sworn to secrecy and obliged to observe the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation.

Recipients of personal data
Within the company, the entities that need your data for performing our contractual duties will receive access to your data. Service providers used by us may also receive data for these purposes, provided that they are likewise bound by the GDPR. Further data recipients may include entities for which you have granted us consent to pass on data.

Transfers of personal data to third countries or international organisations
No data will be transmitted to entities in countries outside of the European Union (so-called third countries) or to international organisations.

Storage period
We shall process and store your personal data as long as this is necessary for fulfilling our contractual and statutory duties. Thereafter, your personal data will normally be erased, unless the continued processing of your personal data - for a limited period - is necessary for the following purposes:

  1. for fulfilling retention requirements under trade or fiscal law
  2. for preserving evidence under the statutory provisions concerning the statute of limitation

Your rights
You have, of course, rights concerning the collection of your data. According to applicable law, we are obliged to inform you of these rights:

  1. Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
  2. Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
  3. Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR)
  4. Right to restriction (Art. 18 GDPR)
  5. Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
  6. Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
  7. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG)

To exercise these rights, please contact the contact persons named at the end of this Data Privacy Statement.

Duty to provide data
In the course of our business relationship, you will need to provide the personal data necessary for taking up, implementing and discontinuing the business relationship and for fulfilling the contractual duties in connection therewith. Without this data we would generally be unable to conclude a contract with you or carry out or discontinue such contract.

Automated individual decision-making
In compliance with Article 22 GDPR, we basically do not use fully automated decision-making. No profiling takes place.

Changes in our data protection provisions
We reserve the right to change our security and data protection measures in accordance with the current requirements.
In such cases we will also change our information on data protection accordingly. Any changes will be announced in good time on this webpage.

If you use any links offered within the framework of our website, this data protection declaration does not extend to these links. If we offer links, we always try to ensure that they comply with our data protection and security standards. However, we do not have any influence on the compliance with data protection and security standards by other providers. Please refer to the data protection declarations provided on the websites of any such providers.
