We only process personal data of our users to the extent necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of our users' personal data is only carried out regularly with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of data is permitted by law.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. For the processing of personal data required to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing procedures which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. To the extent that processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6(1)(1)(b) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
The personal data of the data subject will be disclosed or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. This data may also be stored if the European or national legislator has provided for this in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Additional storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are changed or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no contradiction on the part of the user.

This is the case for the execution of a contract during the registration process or for the execution of pre-contractual measures if the data is no longer required for the execution of the contract. Even after conclusion of the contract, it may still be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations.

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us only for the treatment of the establishment of contact. In the event of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.
The other personal data processed during the sending process are used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The data will be collected as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those that were sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. Conversation ends when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally resolved.
Additional personal data collected during the sending process will be collected after seven days at the latest.
The user may at any time revoke his/her consent to the processing of personal data. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued. For this purpose, it is sufficient to inform us by e-mail, by telephone or via the contact form.

By anonymizing the IP address, users' interest in protecting their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.
The data will be deleted when it is no longer needed for our recording purposes. In our case, this is the case after 26 months.
