C. General information on data processing

The operator of these web pages is committed to the safety of your personal data. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations as well as this privacy statement.

We categorically collect and use personal data of our users only insofar as this is required for the provision of a functional and operative website as well as of our contents and services.

We routinely collect and use the personal data of our users only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

D. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Article 6 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as GDPR).

In particular:

Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data with the prior consent of the data subject.

Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR is the legal basis where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract to which the data subject is party.

Article 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR is the legal basis where the processing of personal data is necessary for the compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject. Article 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR is the legal basis if the processing of personal data is required in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for processing.

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. In addition, personal data may be stored if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

1. Server log files

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The provider of the web pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
The following data is collected here:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

The data is stored in the log files of our system.

This does not apply to the IP addresses of the user or other data enabling the assignment of the data to a user. This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data will not be merged with other data sources. Storage of this data will not be stored with other personal data of the user.

a. Legal basis

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

b. Purpose of storage

Log files are used for storage to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used by the company to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
Our legitimate interest in the processing of the data also lies in these purposes, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

c. Deletion

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. Where data is collected for the provision of the website, the data is deleted when the respective session is completed. Data stored in log files will be deleted after a maximum of seven days.

d. Right of objection

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. For this reason, there is no right of objection on the part of the user in this case.
