The information in this Privacy Notice applies to the processing of personal data on or via our website and is intended to inform you in particular about the scope of processing, the purposes of processing, recipients, legal bases, retention periods and your rights. Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, i.e. an individual (hereinafter also referred to as a ‘data subject’), including, for example, your name, address or email address. ‘Processing’ personal data means, in particular, the collection, storage, use and transmission of such data.

In cases where we have obtained your consent to process personal data, Art. 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) serves as the legal basis for processing this personal data.
When processing personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for such processing. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary in connection with pre-contractual activities.
In cases where it is necessary to process personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis for such processing.
If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of ours or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh these interests, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for such processing.
Personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose for which the data is stored ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be retained for longer periods if this has been provided for by European or national legislative bodies in EU regulations, laws or other rules to which the controller is subject.
This data is also stored in log files on our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
The temporary retention of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable access to the website by the user’s device. To this end, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files to ensure and improve the functionality of the website and for statistical analysis.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in processing personal data.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data collected to enable provision of the website, this will be undertaken once the respective session has ended.
Any data stored in log files will be erased within seven days at the latest. Retention beyond this period is nevertheless possible. In this case, the users’ IP addresses will be erased or modified, so that it is not possible to associate the IP address with the requesting client.
Cookies are small text files that are saved on the hard drive of your computer according to the web browser you use and that send certain information to the party who placed the cookie.
We use the following cookies that are necessary for the provision of our website (essential cookies):
We use so-called session cookies on our website. The purpose of these cookies is to identify your device during a visit to our website and to be able to determine the end of your visit.

When you visit our website, you can consent to the use of so-called tracking cookies via a so-called cookie banner (see section 6). If you click on ‘Accept’ on the cookie banner, a cookie with this information will be stored on your device (‘consent cookie’) so that the cookie banner will no longer be displayed on subsequent visits to our website.
If you have a user account and log in, you have the option to activate the ‘Remember login’ function. If you do so, a cookie will be set on your device that identifies you as logged in so that you do not have to log in again each time (‘login cookie’).
For security reasons, we also use a so-called XSRF token cookie, the purpose of which is to prevent cross-site request forgery attacks on our website.
In addition, Google Analytics sets cookies that are used for purposes of web analysis (see section 7).

The interest of users in protecting their personal data is given due consideration through the anonymisation of IP addresses.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.

The conversation has ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter at hand has been conclusively resolved.
