II) Provision of the website and log files
- Description and scope of data processing
Each time the website is accessed, our system, i.e. the web server, automatically collects information from the system of the computer or the user’s device.
The following data is stored:
- Information about the browser type and version used
- the operating system of the user’s device
- the user’s Internet service provider
- the user’s IP address
- Date and time of access
- the previous website visited from which the user arrives on to our website
- the amount of data transferred in each case
- Content of the request (concrete page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of this data and the log files is Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f) GDPR (legitimate interests of us as responsible website operator).
You have the right to object at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation to processing of personal data made pursuant to Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f) GDPR (Art. 21 GDPR). We will no longer process the personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for further processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- Purpose of Data Processing
The temporary storage of the above-mentioned data by our system, in particular the IP address of the user, is necessary in order to enable the delivery of the website to the user’s computer. In addition, it assists in displaying our website correctly.
You are not obligated to provide us with the above data. If you do not provide us with this data or only to a limited extent, it may result in our website not being able to be loaded fully or only partially.
The above-mentioned data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of our website. This data is also used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems (e.g. for intrusion detection and tracking).
- Duration of Storage
The data processed when using our website will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is terminated.
In case of storage of the data in log files it is the case after 7 days. However, the user’s IP address is anonymized after 24 hours. As a result, it is no longer possible to assign the calling client ID with any personal data.
III) E-Mail Contact and using our contact form
- Description and scope of data processing
We can be contacted via our contact form and the e-mail address provided. In case of contacting us, the personal data transmitted by the sender/user will be stored.
- Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of such data, which is transmitted in the course of a contact request is based on Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f) GDPR (legitimate interests of us as controllers).
If the contact request is aimed at entering into a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art.6 Section 1 lit. b) GDPR (fulfilment of a contract).
You have the right to object at any time on grounds relating toyour particular situation to processing of personal data made pursuant to Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR (Art. 21 GDPR). We will no longer process the personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for further processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment exercise or defence of legal claims.
- Purpose of data processing
The processing of this personal data is used solely for the processing of contact.
- Duration of storage
The above data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection. This is the case for personal data sent by e-mail or the contact form when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation ends when the request for information is fulfilled and it is clear from the circumstances that there will be no need for further information or contact. If the purpose of the contact was the conclusion of a contract, the data will be deleted if it is finally established that the contract will not be concluded or if the concluded contract is terminated and no legal retention periods prevent deletion.
- General Information
We use so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored on your device by the internet browser you use. These cookies process certain information of the user, such as the browser or location data or his IP address, and to the individual extent.
This processing will make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure.
In the case of technically necessary cookies, the processing serves our legitimate interests in the functionality of our website and is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 lit f) GDPR.
You have the right to object at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation to processing of personal data made pursuant to Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR (Art. 21 GDPR). We will no longer process the personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for further processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment exercise or defence of legal claims.
You are not obligated to provide us with data as part of the use of technically necessary cookies. If you do not provide us with this data or only to a limited extent, this may result in our website not being able to be displayed in full or only partially.
As far as these functional cookies (i.e. those which are not strictly necessary for the technical operation of the website) go the processing is based on your voluntary consent and thus on the legal basis of Art. 6 section 1 lit. a) GDPR.

However, the steps and measures required for this depend on your specific Internet browser.

- Use of Google Fonts
We use Google Fonts for the uniform display of fonts. When a page is accessed, the user’s browser loads the required web fonts into their own browser cache to display text and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the user’s browser must connect to Google’s servers. In this way, Google becomes aware that our website has been accessed from the user’s IP address. The integration of Google Fonts is necessary for the needs-based design of our website. This is also our interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f) GDPR (legitimate interests of us as controllers). Google LLC is responsible for further data processing. For more information about how Google handles your data, please visit www.policies.google.com/privacy and developers.google.com/fonts/faq.
