II. General Information
Data security and encryption
We would like to point out that security gaps may occur during data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail). Full protection of data against unauthorised third-party access is not possible.
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content which you send to us (e.g. a contact form). You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the character string ‘http://’ changes to ‘https://’, preceded by the lock icon in your browser’s address line. If this icon is enabled, you can transmit data to us and be sure that this data is protected against third-party access.
Objection to advertising e-mails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the legal notice (imprint) obligation for sending advertising and information materials not expressly requested. The operator of this website expressly reserves the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited transmission of advertising material, for example in the form of spam e-mails.
1. Scope of processing of personal data
We only process the personal data of our website users to the extent that this is necessary to make a fully functional website, as well as our contents and services available to them. The processing of personal data takes place routinely and only with our users’ consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is otherwise permitted by law. As far as hosting services are concerned, we make use of servers for providing platform services, computing and storage capacity, and security services, as well as of technical maintenance services for the purpose of website operation. Our company, or our hosting provider, processes data on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR and Art. 28 GDPR (conclusion of a data processing contract).
Customer, supplier, and contract data
We process your personal data in order to execute and manage the existing or future contractual relationship with you. In this context, your personal data is processed for various purposes within the scope of different processing activities. We usually collect data directly from you. If you do not make this data available to us, we cannot comply with our legal obligations and thus cannot enter into a present or future contractual relationship with you. We process data for the following purposes: identification of new customers/suppliers, communication, submitting and requesting quotations, order processing, compliance with our legal obligations, management tasks, as well as operational organisation. We only transmit personal data to third parties to the extent that this is necessary for executing the contract, e.g. to data processors. Your data will not be transferred for any other purposes unless you have given us your prior consent. We refrain from any transfer of your data to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
If the processing of personal data is required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to conduct pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
If the processing of your data is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and provided that the interests, fundamental rights, and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not take precedence over the aforementioned legitimate interest, Article 6 Paragraph f GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
3. Data Storage and Retention
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by European or national directives, laws, or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for the storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
III. Provision of the website and creation of log files
Every time you visit our website, our system or our hosting provider automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data may be collected: information about the browser type and version used; the user’s operating system; the user’s Internet service provider; the user’s IP address; the date and time of access; websites from which the user’s system reaches our website; websites accessed by the user’s system through our website.
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This does not apply to our users’ IP addresses or other data which enable the assignment of data to an individual user. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Article 6 Paragraph1 lit. f GDPR.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to make the website available on the user’s computer. To do this, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free representation and fault-free operation of the website; to achieve this, server log files must be recorded.
Your data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required for the original purpose of its processing. Therefore, the data collected for making this website available to you will be erased soon as the corresponding session is over.
Furthermore, the IP addresses used for any attempts at unauthorized access to, or intrusion into this website will be stored. The storage serves to protect the security of the website. This data will be deleted after 14 days. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Article 6 Paragraph1 lit. f GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Article 6 Paragraph1 lit. f GDPR.
V. Contact Form and E-Mail Contact
A contact form is available on our website which can be used for electronic contact. If a user accepts this possibility, the data entered in the input screen will be transmitted to us and stored. In addition, the user’s IP address, as well as the date and time of registration are recorded at the time of sending.
Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted by e-mail will be stored. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.
Provided that you have given your consent, the legal basis for the processing of your data is Article 6 Paragraph1 lit. a GDPR. Article 6 Paragraph1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data transmitted when sending us an e-mail.
If the e-mail contact is intended to lead to the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6 Paragraph1 lit. b GDPR.
We only process personal data provided via the input screen for entering into contact with you. E-mail contact also represents the necessary legitimacy in the processing of personal data.
Any other personal data processed during the e-mail transmission process serves to prevent the misuse of the contact form and ensure the security of our IT systems.
The data you provide via the contact form or by e-mail will remain stored on our system until you request us to erase it, withdraw your consent to the storage of your personal data, or the purpose of data storage no longer exists (e.g. after your enquiry has been completely processed). Further applicable legal regulations, and retention periods in particular, remain unaffected.
You are entitled to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. If you contact us by e-mail, you can object to the storage of your personal data at any time. In this case, the conversation can no longer be continued. To revoke your consent or object to the storage of your data, just send us an e-mail or postal mail. Consequently, all your personal data stored within the scope of contacting will be erased.
