This privacy policy also applies to our websites and social media profiles. With regard to the definition of terms such as "personal data" or "processing", we refer to Art. 4 DS-GVO.

The persons concerned are referred to collectively as "users".

Legal bases for the processing of personal data

In the following we inform you about the legal basis for the processing of personal data:

  1. If we have obtained your consent to the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a) GDPR is the legal basis.

  2. If the processing is necessary to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures that are carried out at your request, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR is the legal basis.

  3. Is the processing necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g  statutory retention requirements), Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c) GDPR is the legal basis.

  4. Is the processing necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or a

    to protect another natural person, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. d) GDPR is the legal basis.

  5. Is the processing necessary to safeguard our or the legitimate interests of a third party?

    and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not prevail in this regard, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR is the legal basis.


Disclosure of personal data to third parties and processors

In principle, we do not pass on any data to third parties without your consent. If this is the case, then the transfer takes place on the basis of the aforementioned legal bases, e.g. when transferring data to online payment providers to fulfill a contract or due to a court order or due to a legal obligation to release 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 on order processing, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. We carefully select our processors, check them regularly and have been granted the right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures and comply with the data protection regulations in accordance with BDSG nF and DS-GVO

Data transfer to third countries

The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data will therefore be processed primarily by companies for which the GDPR applies. Should the processing take place by third-party services outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the determination of a level of data protection officially recognized by the EU Commission or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called “standard contractual clauses”.

Insofar as we obtain your express consent to the transfer of data to the USA due to the ineffectiveness of the so-called "Privacy Shield" pursuant to Article 49 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a) GDPR, we point out the risk of secret access in this regard by US authorities and the use of the data for surveillance purposes, possibly without legal remedies for EU citizens.

Deletion of data and storage period

Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as you revoke your consent to processing or the purpose for storage no longer applies or the data are no longer required for the purpose, unless their further Storage is required for evidence purposes or there are legal storage obligations. This includes, for example, commercial law retention requirements for business letters in accordance with Section 257 (1) HGB (6 years) and tax retention requirements for receipts in accordance with Section 147 (1) AO (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless storage is still required for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

We do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
