Legal basis for the processing of personal data
In the following we inform you about the legal basis of the processing of personal data:
  • If we have obtained your consent to process personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  • If the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken in response to your request, Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter b) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  • If the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. statutory retention obligations), Article 6 paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. c) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  • If the processing is necessary in order to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. d) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  • If the processing is necessary to protect our interests or the legitimate interests of a third party and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not prevail in this respect, Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
Transfer of personal data to third parties and processors
Without your consent, we will not pass on any data to third parties. Should this be the case, however, the transfer will be made on the basis of the aforementioned legal bases, e.g. when data is passed on to online payment providers for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or due to a court order or due to a legal obligation to surrender the data for the purpose of criminal prosecution, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.

We also use contract 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 an agreement for order processing, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. We select our processors carefully, check them regularly and have been granted the right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken suitable technical and organizational measures and comply with the data protection regulations according to BDSG n.F. and DS-GVO.

Transfer of data to countries outside of the EU
The adoption of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (DS-GVO) has created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data is therefore processed primarily by companies to which the DS-GVO applies. If, however, processing is carried out by services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must comply with the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. DS-GVO.

This means that the processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees, such as the EU Commission's officially recognized determination of a level of data protection corresponding to that of the EU or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard contractual clauses". In the case of US companies, submission to the so-called "privacy shield", the data protection agreement between the EU and the USA, fulfills these requirements.

Erasure of data and storage duration
Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the consent granted for processing is revoked by you or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies or the data is no longer required for the purpose, unless its further storage is required for evidence purposes or this is opposed by statutory storage obligations.

This includes, for example, commercial storage obligations for business letters according to § 257 para. 1 HGB (6 years) as well as tax storage obligations according to § 147 para. 1 AO of receipts (10 years). When the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless the storage is still necessary for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

Existence of automated decision making
We do not use automatic decision making or profiling.

Provision of our website and creation of log files
If you use our website for informational purposes only (i.e. no registration or other transmission of information), we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data:
  • IP address
  • Internet service provider of the user
  • Date and time of the retrieval
  • Browser type
  • Language and browser version
  • Content of the call
  • Time zone
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Data volume
  • Websites from which the request comes
  • Operating system
This data will not be stored together with other personal data of yours. These data serve the purpose of user-friendly, functional and secure delivery of our website to you with functions and contents as well as their optimization and statistical evaluation.

The legal basis for this is our justified interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S.1 lit. f) DS-GVO, which is also based on the above purposes.

For security reasons, we store this data in server log files for the storage period of days. After this period has elapsed, they are automatically deleted, unless we require their storage for evidence purposes in the event of attacks on the server infrastructure or other legal violations.

Cookies
We use so-called cookies when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser places and saves on your computer. When you visit our website again, these cookies provide information to automatically recognize you. Cookies also include the so-called "user IDs", where user information is stored using pseudonymised profiles. When you call up our website, we will inform you about the use of cookies for the aforementioned purposes and how you can object to or prevent their storage ("opt-out") by referring to our data protection declaration.

The following types of cookies are distinguished:
  • Necessary, essential cookies: Essential cookies are cookies that are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website in order to save certain functions of the website such as logins, shopping cart or user entries, e.g. regarding the language of the website.
  • Session-Cookies: Session-Cookies are needed to recognize multiple use of an offer by the same user (e.g. if you have logged in to determine your login status). When you visit our site again, these cookies provide information to automatically recognize you. The information obtained in this way is used to optimize our offers and make it easier for you to access our site. When you close the browser or log out, the session cookies are deleted.
  • Persistent cookies: These cookies remain stored even after the browser is closed. They are used to save the login, to measure reach and for marketing purposes. They are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.
  • Third-party cookies (especially from advertisers): According to your wishes, you can configure your browser settings and refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out at this point that you may then not be able to use all functions of this website.

Categories of data:
User data, cookie, user ID (including the pages visited, device information, access times and IP addresses).

Purposes of processing:
The information obtained in this way serves the purpose of optimizing our web offers both technically and economically and of enabling you to access our website more easily and securely.

Legal basis
If we process your personal data with the aid of cookies on the basis of your consent ("opt-in"), then Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis. Otherwise we have a legitimate interest in the effective functionality, improvement and economic operation of the website, so that in this case Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis. The legal basis is also Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) DS-GVO, if the cookies are set to initiate a contract, e.g. when orders are placed.

Duration of storage/deletion:
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended; otherwise, cookies are stored on your computer and transmitted by it to our site. Therefore you as a user have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your Internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies already stored can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies for our website are deactivated, it may not be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

Here you will find information about the deletion of cookies by browser:


Objection and "Opt-Out":
You can generally prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive, regardless of consent or legal permission, by selecting "do not accept cookies" in your browser settings. However, this can result in a functional restriction of our offers. You can object to the use of third-party cookies for advertising purposes by means of a so-called "opt-out" via this American website (https://optout.aboutads.info ) or this European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement ).

Cookie Consent Solutions / Consent Manager Provider:
We have implemented the CookieBot (service provider: Cybot A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark / Website: https://www.cookiebot.com ) integrated as consent management service.

Data categories and description of data processing:
cookies, date and time of visit, device information, browser information, anonymized IP address, opt-in and opt-out data. This service enables us to obtain your consent to the storage of cookies and to document this consent. In addition, a cookie is stored in your browser for this purpose in order to be able to assign the consent you have given or to be able to revoke it. Below you will find further information in the data protection declaration of the data processor Cybot A/S (https://www.cookiebot.com/de/privacy-policy).

Purposes of data processing:
compliance with legal obligations, storage of consent.

Legal basis:
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is our legitimate interest in the above-mentioned purposes in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO and the fulfillment of legal obligations in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO.

Storage duration:
Storage of the data until you delete the CookieBot-Cookie in your browser yourself or the purpose for the data storage no longer applies. The revocation document of a previously granted consent is kept for a period of three years. The storage is based on our accountability according to article 5 paragraph 2 DSGVO.

Data transmission/recipient category:
The consent management service we use is a provider in Europe. We have therefore concluded a contract for order processing with the data processor in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO.

Contract management
We process inventory data (e.g. company, title/academic degree, names and addresses as well as contact data of users, e-mail), contract data (e.g. services used, names of contact persons) and payment data (e.g. bank details, payment history) for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations (knowing who is the contractual partner; justification, content and processing of the contract; checking the plausibility of the data) and services (e.g. contacting customer service) in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit b) DS-GVO. The entries marked as obligatory in online forms are required for the conclusion of the contract.

In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties, unless it is necessary to pursue our claims (e.g. transfer to a lawyer for collection) or to fulfill the contract (e.g. transfer of the data to payment providers) or if there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO.

We may also process the data you provide in order to inform you about other interesting products from our portfolio or to send you e-mails with technical information.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the inventory and contract data when the data is no longer necessary for the execution of the contract and no more claims can be asserted under the contract because they are time-barred (warranty: two years / standard limitation period: three years). We are obliged by commercial and tax law to store your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. However, if the contract is terminated after three years, we will restrict processing, i.e. your data will only be used to comply with legal obligations. Details in the user account remain until it is deleted.

Contact via contact form / e-mail / fax / mail
When contacting us by contact form, fax, post or e-mail, your data will be processed for the purpose of handling the contact request.

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO if you have given your consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of a contact request or e-mail, letter or fax is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO. The person responsible has a legitimate interest in the processing and storage of the data in order to be able to respond to user enquiries, to secure evidence on liability grounds and, where appropriate, to be able to comply with his or her statutory obligations to retain business letters. If the contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, an additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO.

We may store your information and contact request in our customer relationship management system ("CRM system") or similar system.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. For personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with you has ended. The conversation is finished when it can be concluded from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified. Inquiries from users who have an account or a contract with us will be stored for a period of two years after termination of the contract.

In the case of legal archiving obligations, deletion takes place after their expiry: retention obligation in commercial law (6 years) and in tax law (10 years).

You have the option of withdrawing your consent to the processing of personal data at any time in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter a) DS-GVO. If you contact us by e-mail, you can object to the storage of your personal data at any time.

Contact by phone
When contacting us by telephone, your telephone number is processed and temporarily stored or displayed in the RAM / cache of the telephone set / display for the purpose of processing the contact request and its handling. The storage is done for liability and security reasons, in order to be able to prove the call, and for economic reasons, in order to enable a call back. In case of unauthorized advertising calls, we block the phone numbers.

The legal basis for the processing of the telephone number is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) of the DS-GVO. If the contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) (b) DS-GVO.

The device cache stores the calls for days and successively overwrites or deletes old data; when the device is disposed of, all data is deleted and the memory destroyed if necessary. Blocked telephone numbers are checked annually to see if they need to be blocked.

You can prevent the phone number from being displayed by calling with the phone number suppressed.

Newsletter
You can subscribe to our newsletter with your voluntary consent by entering your e-mail address. Only this is mandatory. The provision of further data is voluntary and only serves the purpose of a personal approach. We use the so-called "double opt-in procedure" for registration. After your registration with your e-mail you will receive an e-mail from us to confirm your registration with a confirmation link. If you click this confirmation link, your e-mail will be added to the newsletter distribution list and stored for the purpose of sending e-mails. If you do not click on the confirmation link within hours, your registration data will be blocked and automatically deleted after days.

In addition, we log your IP address used during registration and the date and time of the double opt-in (registration and confirmation). The purpose of this storage is to fulfill legal requirements regarding proof of your registration and to prevent misuse of your e-mail.

Within the scope of your declaration of consent, the contents (e.g. advertised products/services, offers, advertising and topics) of the newsletter are described in concrete terms.

When sending the newsletter we evaluate your user behavior. For this purpose, the newsletters contain so-called "web beacons" or "tracking pixels", which are called up when the newsletter is opened. For the analysis we link the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID. The data is only collected pseudonymously, the IDs are therefore not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. With this data we can determine whether and when you opened the newsletter and which links in the newsletter were clicked. This serves the purpose of optimizing and statistically evaluating our newsletter.

The legal basis for sending the newsletter, measuring success and storing the e-mail is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO in conjunction with § 7 para. 2 No. 3 UWG and for the recording of consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO, as this serves our legitimate interest of legal provability.

You can object to the tracking at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of the newsletter. In this case, however, receipt of the newsletter would also be terminated. If you deactivate the display of images in your e-mail software, tracking is also not possible. However, this may have restrictions on the functions of the newsletter and contained images will not be displayed.

You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time. You can exercise the revocation by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the end of the newsletter, sending an e-mail or sending a message to our contact details above. We store your data as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing, your data will only be stored anonymously for statistical purposes.
