b. General Data Processing Information
Using this website may lead to the processing of personal data. The data protection regulation term “personal data” refers to all information related to a specific individual or individuals. Even an IP address can be considered personal data. An IP address is assigned by the Internet provider to every device connected to the Internet so that it can send and receive data. When you use this website, we gather information that you provide. In addition, we automatically gather certain information about your usage of the website during your visit to it.

We process personal data under consideration of the valid data protection regulations, particularly the GDPR and the German BDSG. We only process data if we are legally allowed to do so. When you use this website, we only process personal data with your authorization (Art. 6 Sec. 1 Clause 1 a) GDPR), to fulfill a contract in which you are a party or upon your request to fulfill pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 Sec. 1 Clause 1 b) GDPR), to fulfill a legal obligation (Art. 6 Sec. 1 Clause 1 c) GDPR), or if the processing is required to safeguard our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, insofar as your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms that require the protection of personal data do not outweigh these (Art. 6 Sec. 1 Clause 1 f) GDPR).

c. Duration of Storage
Unless otherwise stated in the information below, we only store the data for as long as it is required to achieve the processing purpose or to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations. These legal storage obligations can particularly arise from commercial or tax regulations.

d. Technical Service Providers
Unless otherwise stated in the information below, data is processed on the servers of technical service providers whom we have employed for this purpose. These service providers only process the data according to explicit instructions and are contractually obliged to ensure adequate technical and organizational data protection measures.

2. Processing Server Log Files

If you are just using the website to acquire information, then only general information will automatically be stored (so not via a registration) initially, which your browser transmits to our server. Generally, this includes: Browser type/version, operating system used, page visited, the previously visited page (referrer URL), IP address, time and date of the server request, and HTTP status code.

The data is processed to safeguard our legitimate interests in accordance with the legal basis of Art. 6 Sec. 1 Clause 1 f) GDPR. Processing aids the technical management and security of the website. The stored data is deleted after seven days if there is no legitimate suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete criteria, meaning further inspection and processing of the information is not required for this reason.

3. Contact Options and Inquiries

Our website contains a contact form through which you can send us messages. Your data is then transferred in an encrypted manner.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Sec. 1 Clause 1 b) GDPR. All data fields marked as mandatory are required to process your request. Should you not fill out these fields, we will be unable to process your request. The provision of any other data is optional. Alternatively, you can also send us a message via the contact e-mail.

We also analyze the reading behavior and click rates of our newsletters. To this end, we collect and process pseudonymized usage data that is not combined with your e-mail address or your IP address.
