Relevant legal bases
In the following, we share the legal basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, the national data protection regulations in your or our country of residence and domicile may apply. Should more specific legal bases also apply in individual cases, we will inform you of this in the data protection declaration.
- Contract fulfillment and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR) - The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or to carry out pre-contractual measures that are carried out at the request of the data subject.
- Legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. GDPR) - The processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the person responsible or a third party unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject that require the protection of personal data outweigh them.
National data protection regulations in Germany: In addition to the data protection regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation, national regulations on data protection in Germany apply. This includes, in particular, the law on protection against misuse of personal data in data processing (Federal Data Protection Act - BDSG). The BDSG contains in particular special regulations on the right to information, the right to deletion, the right to object, the processing of special categories of personal data, the processing for other purposes, and for the transmission as well as automated decision-making in individual cases including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship (Section 26 BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation, or termination of employment relationships and the consent of employees. State data protection laws of the individual federal states can also be applied.
We take measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the type, scope, circumstances, and purposes of processing as well as the different probability of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.
The measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data by controlling the physical and electronic access to the data as well as the access, input, transfer, securing availability, and their separation. Furthermore, we have set up procedures that guarantee the exercise of data subject rights, the deletion of data, and reactions to the risk to the data. We also take the protection of personal data into account when developing or selecting hardware, software, and processes in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings.
Shortening the IP address: If it is possible for us or it is not necessary to save the IP address, we will shorten it or have your IP address shortened. If the IP address is shortened, also known as "IP masking", the last octet, i.e., the last two digits of an IP address, is deleted (in this context, the IP address is an Internet connection through the online Access provider individually assigned identifier). By shortening the IP address, the identification of a person based on their IP address is to be prevented or made significantly more difficult.
SSL encryption (https): In order to protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address line of your browser.
When contacting us (e.g., via a contact form, email, telephone, or via social media), the details of the inquiring person are processed, insofar as this is to answer the contact inquiries and any requested measures are required.
The answering of contact inquiries within the framework of contractual or pre-contractual relationships takes place in order to fulfill our contractual obligations or to answer (pre) contractual inquiries and on the basis of the legitimate interests in answering the inquiries.
- Processed data types: inventory data (e.g., names, addresses), contact details (e.g., email, telephone numbers), content data (e.g., text input, photographs, videos).
- Data subjects: Communication partners.
- Purposes of processing: Contact requests and communication.
- Legal basis: Fulfillment of the contract and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. GDPR), legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. GDPR).
Provision of the online offer and web hosting
In order to be able to provide our online offer securely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web-hosting providers. The online offer can be called up from their servers (or from the servers they manage). For these purposes, we can use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space, and database services as well as security and technical maintenance services.
The data processed in the context of the provision of the hosting offer can include all information relating to the users of our online offer that are incurred in the context of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address that is necessary in order to be able to deliver the content of online offers to browsers and all entries made within our online offer or on websites.
Email sending and hosting: The web hosting services we use also include the sending, receiving, and storage of emails. For these purposes, the addresses of the recipients and senders, as well as further information regarding the sending of emails (e.g., the providers involved) and the content of the respective emails are processed. The aforementioned data can also be processed for the purpose of detecting SPAM. We ask you to note that emails are generally not sent encrypted on the Internet. As a rule, emails are encrypted during transport, but (unless an end-to-end encryption process is used) not on the servers from which they are sent and received. We can, therefore, assume no responsibility for the transmission route of the emails between the sender and the receipt on our server.
Collection of access data and log files: We (or our web hosting provider) collect data on every access to the server (so-called server log files). The server log files can include the address and name of the websites and files accessed, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type, and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP Addresses and the requesting provider belong.
The server log files can be used on the one hand for security purposes, e.g., to avoid overloading the server (especially in the case of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) and, on the other hand, to ensure that the server is fully loaded and stable.
- Processed data types: content data (e.g., text input, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g., visited websites, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g., device information, IP addresses).
- Data subjects: users (e.g., website visitors, users of online services).
- Purposes of Processing: Contractual services.
- Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. GDPR).
