Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data
The legal bases of the collection, storage and processing of personal data can be found in particular in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
Personal data is information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (Art. 4 no. 1 GDPR). This includes in particular names, address data, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses. However, information on preferences, memberships or e.g. previously visited websites may also constitute personal data.
Contact and Fulfilment of Contracts
If you contact us (e.g. via e-mail or our contact form), the data transmitted by you will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry as well as for possible processing of subsequent questions. Legal basis for the processing is the necessity to perform pre-contractual measures according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. We will delete the data accruing in this connection after storage is no longer necessary or we restrict the processing if there are statutory retention obligations.
We process your personal data for the purpose of fulfilling the contract only as long as we need it for this purpose. In addition, we store your personal data for the fulfilment of eventual legal retention obligations. The periods of retention or documentation specified in the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO), for example, are six to ten years. In addition, your data will be stored until relevant civil law legal claims have become barred.
Disclosure to Third Parties
We disclose your personal data to third parties insofar as this is required to fulfil contracts or to process payments. Legal basis for the disclosure is the necessity to fulfil a contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. A disclosure of personal data to third parties for marketing or advertising purposes will not be made without your express consent.
