Personal data is data concerning your person. It includes your name, your
address and your e-mail address. You need not disclose any personal data
in order to be able to visit our website. In certain cases, we need your
name, address and further information in order to be able to provide you
with the required service.
This also applies in case we send you any information material requested or if we respond to your enquiries. In these cases, we will always point this out to you. Moreover, we only store the data you have communicated to us automatically or voluntarily.
If you use one of our services, we usually only collect the data necessary to provide our service to you. We may ask you for more information, which, however, is voluntary in nature. Whenever we process personal data, we do so to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial goals.

Automatically saved data
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which are communicated to us automatically by your browser. These are:
- date and time of the request,
- name of the requested file,
- page from which the file was requested,
- access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.),
- web browser and operating system used,
- complete IP address of the requesting computer,
- data volume transferred.
This data is not merged with other data sources. Processing is carried out
in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate
interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to fend off attempts to attack our web server, this data is stored by us for a short time. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons based on this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user. In anonymous form, the data is also processed for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data sets or passed on to third parties, even in extracts.
When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of
cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique
identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet
pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the
cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish
the individual browser of the person concerned from other internet browsers
which contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and
identified by the unique cookie ID.
Through the use of session cookies, the responsible party can provide the users of this website with a user-friendly service that would not be possible without the setting of cookies. Without consent, we only use necessary cookies, technically speaking, on the legal basis of legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
For sending the newsletter we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. we will only send you a newsletter by e-mail if you have previously expressly confirmed that you want us to activate the newsletter service. We will then send you a notification e-mail and ask you to confirm that you would like to receive our newsletter by clicking on a link contained in this e-mail. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of subscription. This storage only serves as proof in case a third party misuses your e-mail address to register you for the newsletter without your knowledge or authorization. If you do not wish to receive any newsletters from us at a later date, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.

We are entitled, subject to the statutory requirements of § 7 para. 3 UWG (German Unfair Competition Act), to use the e-mail address you provided when concluding the contract for direct advertising for our own similar goods or services.

4. Who receives my data?
If we deploy a service provider in terms of order processing, we nevertheless
remain responsible for the protection of your data. All contract processors
are contractually obliged to treat your data confidentially and to process it
only within the scope of the service provided. The contract processors
commissioned by us will receive your data insofar as they require the data
for the performance of their respective services. These are, for example,
IT service providers who we require for the operation and security of our
IT system as well as advertising and address publishers for our own advertising
Your data is processed in our customer database. The customer database supports the improvement of the data quality of the existing customer data (duplicate cleansing, moved/deceased flags, address correction) and enables the enrichment with data from public sources.
This data is made available to the member companies of the Group insofar as this is necessary for the processing of the contract. Customer data is stored separately for each company. If there is a legal obligation and in the context of legal proceedings, government authorities and courts as well as external auditors may be recipients of your data. Moreover, insurance, banks, information agencies and health insurance schemes may be recipients of your data for the purpose of initiating and fulfilling contracts.
5. How long will my data be stored?
We process your data until the end of the business relationship or until the expiry of the applicable statutory retention periods (e.g. from the German Commercial Code, the German Fiscal Code or the Working Hours Act); in addition, until the end of any legal disputes in which the data is required as evidence.
6. Will personal data be transferred to a third-party country?
We do not transfer any data to a third-party country on principle. A transfer only takes place in individual cases on the basis of an adequacy decision of the European Commission, standard contractual clauses, appropriate safeguards or your explicit consent.
7. What data protection rights do you have?
You have the right at any time to information, rectification, deletion or restriction of the processing of your stored data, a right of objection to the processing as well as a right to data transferability, and a right of complaint subject to the requirements of data protection law.

You can request information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.
Right of rectification:
If we process your data that is incomplete or inaccurate, you may request at any time that we correct or complete it.

interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent an immediate
deletion, e.g. in the case of retention obligations regulated by law.
Irrespective of the exercising of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as there is no legal or statutory obligation to retain data in this respect.
Right to restriction of data processing:
You can require us to restrict processing of your data if
- you dispute the accuracy of the data, for a period of time which allows us to verify accuracy of the data.
- processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse to delete it and instead demand a restriction on the use of the data,

Right of objection:
If we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you may object to such processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection, which outweigh your interests, rights and liberties or processing serves the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims. You can object to processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.
Right to legal remedy:
If you are of the opinion that we are violating German or European data protection
law when processing your data, we ask you to contact us in order to clarify any
questions you may have. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory

8. Am I obliged to provide data?
The processing of your data is necessary to conclude or perform the contract concluded between you and us. If you do not provide us with this data, we will generally have to refuse to enter into the contract or will no longer be able to perform an existing contract and will therefore have to terminate it. However, you are not obliged to give your consent to data processing with regard to data which is not relevant for the performance of the contract or which is not required by law.

have the latest version. If any fundamental changes are made to this data
protection policy, we will post these on our website.
