2. Legal bases for processing
A legal basis is needed to process personal data. We present this below.
If the data subject consents to us processing their personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis. If personal data must be processed to perform a contract to which the data subject is party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR forms the legal basis. This also covers processing needed in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
If personal data must be processed to comply with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR forms the legal basis.
If processing is necessary for the purposes of a legitimate interest pursued by our company or by a third party and this first-mentioned interest is not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR forms the legal basis for the processing. Our company has a legitimate interest in conducting our business activities and in analyzing, optimizing, and maintaining the security of our website.
II. Log files
Data transmitted to us by the browser within the context of our legitimate interest of analysis and for security reasons is automatically stored in the server statistics (log files).
Specifically, this refers to the following data:
- Browser software language and version
- Operating system used and its interface
- Referrer URL (the last page you visited)
- Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
- Date and time of the server request
- Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Data volume transferred
- Access status/HTTP status code
We are usually not able to attribute this data to particular individuals. This data is not merged with other data sources. Furthermore, the data is erased within seven days of statistical evaluation. Data which must be kept for longer for evidential purposes is excluded from erasure until final clarification of the respective incident.
III. Making contact
If you contact us via email or use the contact form, we store your information in order to answer your questions.
This is generally not passed on to third parties unless a transmission is justified by applicable data protection laws or we are legally obligated to do so. You may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. In the case of a withdrawal, your data is erased immediately. Otherwise, your data is erased once we have processed your request or once the purpose for which it has been stored ceases to exist.
To find out which functions set cookies on our website, please refer to the individual functions further below.
V. Comments and contributions
You may leave public comments and post other contributions on our website. If you leave a comment, this is displayed with the relevant article. Your user name, the date and time as well as the comment you left may be stored. If you give an email address, it will not be published. When you post a comment, we store your IP address internally with the data specified by you. This is because we may be liable for publishing illegal content and therefore have a legitimate interest in the identity of the author.
VI. Disclosure of data to third parties
We disclose data to third parties if this is necessary to fulfill a contract and/or we are legally obligated to do so in a specific case.
We sometimes make use of external service providers within the context of our legitimate interest in respect to the analysis, optimization, and cost-effective operation of the website. This always requires that a third-party content provider is aware of the user’s IP address, as they cannot send content to their browser without it. The IP address is needed to display this content. Furthermore, third-party providers may use what are known as pixel tags (clear graphics, also “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags can be used to analyze information, such as visitor traffic to this website’s pages. Furthermore, the pseudonymous information may be stored in cookies on the user’s device and contain technical information similar to log files and more. We have listed our service providers for you below.
If your data is to be used for other purposes, we inform you of this beforehand and only use the data with your express, prior consent.

Facebook Custom Audiences and Website Custom Audiences
Our website uses Facebook’s advertising tools Custom Audiences and Website Custom Audiences, which generate an irreversible, anonymized digest message (hash value) from your user data. This digest is transmitted to Facebook’s social platform for analysis and marketing purposes and stored in the U.S.A.
When you access our website, the Facebook pixel is directly linked to Facebook and can store a small file on your device, so-called cookies. When you login to or visit Facebook, your view of our online offer is noted in your profile. Your personal data remains anonymous to us and does not offer any indication whatsoever as to the user’s identity. Nonetheless, your data is stored and processed by Facebook, allowing a connection to a given user’s profile and can be used by Facebook and by us for market research and advertising purposes. Should we transfer data to Facebook for alignment purposes, this data is encrypted locally before being transmitted to Facebook over a secure https connection. This only occurs to align encrypted data with Facebook’s equally encrypted data.
For further information on the extent to which Facebook collects your data and on Facebook’s purpose, processing and use practices, as well as on your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy, please read Facebook’s privacy statement under http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/, and specifically for Facebook Custom Audiences under https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/.

You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority if you feel the processing of your personal data is illegal.
If you have given consent, you are entitled to withdraw this consent at any time. This does not affect the legality of any processing performed on the basis of this consent before such consent was withdrawn.
You are entitled to object to future processing of your personal data in accordance with statutory regulations at any time. In particular, you may object to processing for direct marketing purposes.
VIII. Duration of storage of personal data
We store personal data for the duration of the respective legal retention period. Once this period expires, the data is routinely erased provided it is not needed for contract initiation or fulfillment. If user data is not erased because it is needed for other legally permissible purposes, its processing is limited. The data is blocked accordingly and not processed for other purposes. This applies to, for example, user data which must be kept under commercial or tax law.
IX. Security information
We go to great lengths to use all technical and organizational means to ensure that your personal data is processed in a manner that is compliant with data protection regulations which protect this data.
