Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of their use

When visiting the website

When you visit our website, the browser used on your end device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automatic deletion, usually after one month:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • Date and time of access,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which the access is made (referrer URL),
  • The browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.

The aforementioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection of the website,
  • Ensuring a comfortable use of our website,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability
  • Clarification of any abusive page accesses (DoS/DDoS attacks or similar) as well as
  • for other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is § 25 para. 2 no. 2 TTDSG and Art. 6 para. 1 litl f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest here is to ensure the integrity, confidentiality and availability of the data processed via these web pages. As a rule, we do not use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. At most, we reserve the right to do so in the event that this becomes necessary in order to clarify abusive page accesses.

When contacting us

For questions of any kind, we offer you the possibility to contact us by phone or by e-mail. For questions of any kind, we also offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website. In doing so, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that we know from whom the inquiry originates and so that we can answer it. In addition, we require that you provide a name and title so that we can address you personally in the course of communication, as well as a telephone number so that we can also contact you by telephone - particularly in the case of client inquiries - for queries or for consultation purposes. The optional information is provided on a voluntary basis. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (e.g. telephone number, e-mail), we can also contact you via this communication channel in order to answer your request. The personal data you provide will be used exclusively for the purpose for which you provided us with the data when contacting us.

When contacting us (via contact form, phone or email), your information will be processed for the purpose of handling the contact request and its processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO (necessary information in the context of pre-contractual measures) or pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO (legitimate interest to respond to your request). If you contact us by email or by contact form, we also store the content that you have sent us by email.

We delete the data received in the course of contacting you as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This also applies to your voluntary information. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail or transmitted to us by telephone, the data is deleted when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified, but no later than 1 month after the last contact. If a contract is concluded with you, we will process your personal data for the duration of the contract and beyond that for a further 3 years, for the assertion or protection of any warranty rights, unless there are legal obligations to retain data. In this regard, we refer to the point: "General information on deletion and retention periods of your data".


If you have expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. A combination with other data does not take place. For the receipt of the newsletter, the specification of an e-mail address is sufficient. Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in process, i.e. after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. The subsequent confirmation will be stored by us for verification purposes.

Unsubscribing from the newsletter distribution list is possible at any time by sending an unsubscribe email to

General information on the deletion and retention periods of your data

The data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the intended purpose. Details on this can be found under the points of this statement explaining the nature and purpose of the respective processing of personal data.

Data that we have to store due to legal, statutory or contractual retention obligations (e.g. for reasons of tax law) is blocked instead of being deleted to prevent it from being used for other purposes. This includes, for example, storage for 6 years in accordance with Section 257 (1) of the German Commercial Code (HGB ) (for commercial books, inventories, opening balances, annual financial statements, commercial letters, accounting documents, etc.) or storage for 10 years in accordance with Section 147 (1) of the German Tax Code ( AO ) (books, records, management reports, accounting documents, commercial and business letters, documents relevant for taxation, etc.).
