How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data are collected when you provide them to us, whether by entry in the contact form, by email, telefax or other written means or by telephone. Other data are collected by our IT systems automatically or with your consent when you visit the website.
a) Contacting us by email, telephone, telefax or other written means
If you contact us by email, telephone, telefax or other written means, your enquiry/order including all personal data resulting therefrom will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of dealing with your matter. These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, provided that your enquiry relates to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for taking steps prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR), provided that this consent has been requested. The data sent by you via contact requests remain with us until you ask us to erase them, or you withdraw your consent to their storage, or until the purpose of their storage has ceased to apply (e.g. after your matter has been dealt with). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.
b) Data protection on this website

- time of the server request
- IP address
These data are not merged with other data sources.
The collection of these data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically faultless display and optimisation of its website - the server log files must be recorded for this.
Our website uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files and do not cause any harm on your terminal device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently on your terminal device (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted when your visit ends. Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions requested by you (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping basket function) or to optimise the website (e.g. cookies for measuring the web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically faultless and optimised provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the storage of the cookies concerned will be carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR); the consent can be withdrawn at any time.

Where personal data from you are processed, you are the data subject within the meaning of the GDPR, and you are entitled - following successful identification - to the following rights in relation to us.
Right of access You have the right to obtain from our company confirmation as to whether we process personal data concerning you. Where this is the case, you have the right under the GDPR to obtain from us information on a multitude of matters, such as for example
(1) the purposes for which your personal data are being processed;
(2) the categories of personal data that are being processed;
(3) the recipients, or the categories of recipients, to whom your personal data have been disclosed or are yet to be disclosed;
(4) the planned period of storage of your personal data, or, if it is not possible to provide specific information on this, criteria for determining this storage period;
(5) the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of your personal data, a right to restriction of the processing by our company, or a right to object to this processing;
(6) the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
(7) any available information on the origin of your personal data, insofar as your personal data were not collected from you yourself;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Art. 22 (1) and (4) GDPR and - at least in these cases - meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences for the data subject of such processing.
You have the right to be informed of whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you have the right to be informed of the suitable safeguards under Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.
Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion of your personal data, insofar as these data are inaccurate or incomplete. We shall carry out the rectification without delay.
Right to restriction of the processing
You have the right, under certain conditions, to obtain restriction of the processing of your personal data
(1) if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you, for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) if the processing is unlawful, and you decline the erasure of your personal data and obtain instead restriction of the use of your personal data;
(3) if we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need these data for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims, or
(4) if you have objected to the processing pending verification of whether the legitimate grounds of our corporate group and affiliates override those of yours.
Where the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data will, with the exception of storage, be processed by us only 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. Where processing has been restricted under the aforementioned conditions, we shall inform you before the restriction is lifted.
Right to erasure
You have the right to obtain from us, without delay, erasure of your personal data, and we shall then be obliged to erase these data without delay where one of the following grounds applies:
(1) your personal data are no longer needed for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
(2) you withdraw your consent on which the processing is based in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) or 9 (2) (a) GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (2) GDPR.
(4) The personal data concerning you have been unlawfully processed.
(5) The personal data concerning you need to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
Where we have made your personal data public, and we are obliged under Art. 17 (1) GDPR to erase these personal data, we shall, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, take reasonable steps to inform other companies that process your personal data that you have requested the erasure by such companies of any links to (and copies of) your personal data ("right to be forgotten").
The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that the processing is necessary:
(1) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression or to information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation that requires processing under Union or Member State law that the controller is subject to, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Art. 9 (2) (h) and (i) as well as Art. 9 (3) GDPR, or
(4) for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Right to informing of third parties by our company
If you have asserted in relation to our company your right to rectification, to erasure or to restriction of processing, we shall be obliged to communicate this data rectification or erasure, or this restriction of processing, to all recipients to whom your personal data have have disclosed, unless this proves to be impossible or would involve a disproportionate effort. You also have the right to be informed by us of these recipients.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format the personal data concerning you that have been provided to us. Additionally, you have the right to transfer those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where
(1) the processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercise of this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this. The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Right to object to data processing in particular cases, and to object to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is based on Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on those provisions.
In such case, we shall no longer process the personal data concerning you, unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Where the personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling to the extent that profiling is related to such direct marketing. Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we shall no longer process the personal data concerning you for such purposes.
Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke at any time your declaration of consent under data protection law. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent prior to withdrawal.
Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of the personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR. The names and contact details of the relevant supervisory authorities in the European Union can be found at https://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/dataprotection-authorities/index_en.htm
The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
