2.1 Use of the Website
When using our website for information purposes only, we collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. Our site receives a series of general data and information each time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This public data and information are stored in the log files of the server. In detail, this can be the following data:
browser types and versions of the accessing system used;
the operating system used by the accessing system;
the website from which an accessing system reaches our site (so-called referrer);
the sub websites which are accessed via an accessing network on our website;
the date and time of access to our website;
an Internet Protocol (IP) address;
the Internet service provider of the accessing system;
other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

In this case, we process the data you provide us.
3. For what purposes do we process your data and on what legal basis?
3.1 Use of the Website
When utilising the general data collected when you visit our website (section 2), no conclusions are drawn about you as the person concerned. Instead, this data is required:
to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
to optimise the contents of our site as well as the advertising for them,
to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and
to provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.
This anonymously collected data and the information is therefore evaluated by us statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned. The legal basis for the described data processing is Art. 6 Abs. 1 Buchstabe f Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DS-GVO).
3.2 Contact via the website
We store the data that you transmit to us here for the sole purpose of processing/responding to your inquiry. The legal basis for the described data processing is Art. 6 Abs. 1 Buchstabe b DS-GVO.
4. Who has access to your data and for what reason?
The persons with access to your data use it to carry out the tasks assigned to them. These can also be service providers who support us in fulfilling out our functions, e.g. service providers in the following categories:
Hosting service provider for the operation of our servers;
Development service provider for programming, development, maintenance and support of software applications;
Service providers used by us must meet special confidentiality requirements. You will only have access to your data to the extent and for the period necessary to perform the tasks.
In the event of suspicion of a criminal offence, we may disclose your data to law enforcement authorities (police, public prosecutor's office).
5. Is data processed outside the European Union?
We also use service providers located in third countries outside the European Union to process your data.
Countries outside the European Union handle the protection of personal data differently from countries within the European Union. There is currently no decision by the EU Commission that these third countries generally offer an adequate level of protection. We have therefore taken extraordinary measures to ensure that your data are processed in third countries as securely as within the European Union. With service providers in third countries, we conclude the data protection contract (standard data protection clauses) provided by the European Union Commission for the processing of personal data in third countries. This ensures appropriate guarantees for the protection of your data with service providers in third countries. You can request a copy of this data protection agreement at the contact details given above.
6. How long is the data stored?
We only store your data for as long as we need it for the respective processing purposes. If the data are no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the processing purposes mentioned in these data protection instructions, they will be deleted, unless their storage is still required for the fulfilment of commercial or tax storage obligations.

If your details are not or no longer correct, you can request the correction of your data. If your data is incomplete, you can request a completion. For details, we refer to Art. 16 DS-GVO.
You have the right to request the deletion of your data. Please note that a claim for cancellation depends on the existence of a legitimate reason. Besides, there are no regulations that oblige us to keep your data. For details, we refer to Art. 17 DS-GVO.
