Processing of personal data
Personal data will only be processed to the extent that this is necessary. We will primarily obtain the consent of the users concerned, unless this is excluded for actual reasons and/or a legal permission norm exists that justifies the processing.
Legal basis for the processing
If the processing is based on the consent of the data subjects, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO is the legal basis. If the processing is based on a contract concluded with the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO is the legal basis. This also applies to pre-contractual measures at the request of the data subject. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation of our company, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO is the legal basis. Insofar as the processing takes place because vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO is the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interests of our company, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO is the legal basis.
Data deletion and storage period

The storage of data and log files is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Purpose of processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. At the same time, the standard represents the legal basis for the processing.
Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data to provide the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended. Otherwise, we will only process your data as long as this is necessary for the fulfilment of our contract with you or as long as we are obliged to do so by any legal provisions.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage going beyond this is possible. In this case the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

You also have the right to be informed as to whether your personal data will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, we will inform you of the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 DSGVO for the transfer.
Right to rectification
The right to rectification and the new right to completion are guaranteed if personal data about you are inaccurate or incomplete. The rectification will be carried out immediately, i.e. without culpable hesitation on our part.
Right to limit the processing
You have the right to restrict the processing. In this case, your data will only be stored and no longer used. According to the law, you may exercise this right if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time which allows the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data; if the processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion of the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data; if the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or if you object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and it has not yet been established whether the justified reasons of the person responsible outweigh your reasons. Insofar as the processing of your personal data has been restricted, these data, with the exception of the above-mentioned simple storage, may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State. You will be informed as soon as the data are to be used again, i.e. when the restriction on processing is to be lifted.
Right to deletion
You have the right to delete your data as far as one of the following cases is relevant. We will delete the personal data concerning you immediately if the personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed in any other way, if you revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing. If you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or if you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO.

If the person responsible has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete them in accordance with Art. 17 (1) DSGVO, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform the persons responsible for data processing who process the personal data that you, as the person concerned, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
Exceptions to the right of cancellation
The right to deletion may be limited. This is the case if the data is required for the following purposes: Namely, in accordance with the wording of the law, in order to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information; to fulfil a legal obligation which processing requires under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller; for reasons of public interest in the field of public health, in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i as well as Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO; for archive purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Right to information
If you, as a data subject, exercise the right to rectify, cancel or limit the processing, we, as the data controller, are obliged to inform any recipient to whom the corresponding personal data have been disclosed of the assertion of rectification or cancellation of the data or limitation of the processing by the data subject. However, this does not apply if this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right vis-à-vis the person responsible to be informed of these recipients.
Right to data portability (data transferability)
As a data subject, you have the right to request the personal data concerning you which you have given to a responsible person in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to send this data to a third party of your choice. The data controller will not prevent you from transferring the data to the new data controller if the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and the processing is carried out using automated procedures. Insofar as this is technically feasible and the freedoms and rights of other persons are not affected by this, you also have the right to transfer your personal data directly from the original responsible party to the new responsible party. However, the right to data portability does not apply in all cases. If the processing of your personal data is necessary for the performance of a task which is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority assigned to the person responsible.
Right of objection
They have the right to object to the processing in various situations. You are therefore informed that you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO, at the person responsible; the same applies to profiling. In this case, personal data of the data subject will no longer be processed unless the person responsible can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection that outweigh your interests as the data subject and your rights and freedoms. Processing may also continue if it serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. When processing your personal data for direct advertising, you still have the right to object at any time to the processing for such advertising. The same applies to profiling in the event that it is in connection with such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for purposes of direct marketing, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes. In connection with the use of information society services, you have the right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications. The provisions and your rights under Directive 2002/58/EC remain unaffected.
Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time without giving reasons. The revocation is only valid for the future. This means that the revocation of the declaration of consent does not make the previous processing unlawful until receipt of the revocation of the consent.
Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing to the extent that such decision has legal effect on you or significantly affects you in a similar manner. This also applies to corresponding profiling. An exception to this shall be where the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the data controller, is permissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject, and such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or is taken with your express consent. These decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, so-called sensitive data, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests. With regard to the cases referred to in the two aforementioned paragraphs, the person responsible shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests. This includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to present his own position and to challenge the decision.
Right to appeal to a supervisory authority
You have the right to appeal to a regulatory authority. The supervisory authority responsible for you is that of your place of residence. Furthermore, you are at liberty to assert any other legal remedies before administrative or civil courts. The supervisory authority to which you have submitted your complaint will be happy to inform you of the current status of the results and inform you of possible legal remedies.
