What are personal data and what we use them for
Personal data is any information about your person that enables an identification, e. g. surname, first name, address or e-mail address. You do not have to disclose personal data to use our websites. If personal data is collected (e. g. surname, postal address or e-mail address in the contact form) this is done always on a voluntary basis whenever possible. We only store data that you transmitted automatically or voluntarily. These data will not be transferred to third parties without your express permission.
Information obligation when collecting personal data from the person concerned
Please read the following document concerning our information obligation according to Sec. 13 and 14 GDPR when collecting personal data:

We use an encryption process in line with state of the art technology via HTTPS (SSL) in order to protect your data during Transmission.
We save personal data according to the principle of data avoidance and minimisation only for as long as it is necessary or prescribed by the legislators (statutory data retention period). If the purpose for the data processing no longer applies or the legally prescribed term ends, the data will be deleted or blocked.
We would like to point out that the transmission of data on the Internet (e. g. by communicating via e-mail) may contain security gaps. It is not possible to provide complete data security against access by third parties.
Changes and necessary adaptions to legal provisions
We retain the right to make changes at any time when necessary to ensure that our privacy statement is always up to date with the legally prescribed terms. This shall also apply if the data privacy has to be adapted e. g. in case of new or updated services. The new data privacy is then valid the next time you visit our websites.
Data Privacy Statement for the use of Matomo
This website uses the functions of the Matomo Web Analysis Service. Matomo uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. To enable this, the usage information created by the cookies (including your shortened IP address) is transferred to our server and stored for analysing purposes to optimise our website. Your IP address is anonymised immediately during this process and you remain anonymous for us. The usage information created by the cookies will not be transferred to third parties.
Data protection declaration for the use of YouTube
This website uses the function of embedded videos on YouTube. When a website with embedded videos is called up, your IP address is normally already sent to YouTube and cookies are saved on your computer. With our YouTube videos, we have activated the additional data protection mode. This means that in accordance with the data protection declaration from Google, personal data will not be analysed, unless you watch the video. In this case your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube. If you are also logged in to YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account.
Disclosure, Deletion, Blocking
You have the right at any time to disclosure, at no cost to you, concerning your saved personally identifiable information, its origin and recipients, the purpose of such data processing, as well as a right to correction, blocking, or deletion of this information. In this and in other questions about the topic of personally identifiable information, you may turn to us at any time using the address listed in our Imprint.

Legal basis of processing
Sec. 6 I lit. a EU-GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is used by our company as the legal basis for processing procedures, for which we obtain consent for a certain processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to satisfy a contract, where one of the contracting parties is the person concerned, as is for example the case for processing procedures required for a delivery of goods or to provide a service or consideration, then processing is based on Sec. 6 I lit. b EU-GDPR. This also applies to such processing procedures, which are required to implement pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation through which processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as to satisfy tax obligations, then processing is based on Sec. 6 I lit. c EU-GDPR. In rare cases the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another individual. This would for example be the case if a visitor to our company is injured and then would have to give his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Sec. 6 I lit. d EU-GDPR. Lastly processing procedures might be based on Sec. 6 I lit. f EU-GDPR. Processing procedures are based on this legal basis if they are not included in any of the above-mentioned legal bases, if processing is necessary to preserve a justified interest of our company or a third party, insofar as the interests, fundamental rights and basic freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh other concerns. Such processing procedures are permitted in particular because they were mentioned specifically by the European legislator. The latter represented the opinion to this extent that a justified interest might be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the responsible person (recital 47 Clause 2 EU-GDPR).
