We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and adhere to the data protection rules. Personal data is only collected, processed or used if the data subject has given their consent, if this is necessary for the fulfilment of an order or contract, or if a German law permits or prescribes its collection, processing or use. Personal data is stored to the extent technically necessary. Under no circumstances will the data collected be passed on to third parties without the consent of the data subject.
The person responsible under the General Data Protection Regulation and other national data protection laws of the member states as well as other data protection provisions is:
Phone: +49 (69) 702160
Natural responsible person:
Following an examination of the legal basis, the following applies to our company:
- There are less than 10 people involved in the "permanent" processing of personal data.
- There are less than 20 people “usually” involved in the processing of personal data.
- Necessary data for customer administration (name, address, email address, etc.) do not contain "sensitive data".
- Sensitive data will only be collected voluntarily with the prior consent of the customer.
- Personal data is not used for the purpose of commercial transmission (e.g. data trade).
There is therefore no need to appoint a controller/data privacy officer.
General information on data processing
Scope of personal data processing:
We process the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our content and services. We process the personal data of our users on a regular basis only with the consent of the user. Exceptions apply in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the data processing is permitted by law.
Legal basis for processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent for data processing of personal data of the data subject, section 6 paragraph 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. Section 6 paragraph 1 lit. b of the GDPR serves as a legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Section 6 paragraph 1 lit. c of the GDPR serves as a legal basis if the processing of personal data is necessary to meet a legal obligation to be fulfilled by our company. Section 6 paragraph 1 lit. d of the GDPR serves as a legal basis if vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data. Section 6 paragraph 1 lit. f of the GDPR serves as a legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third-party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest.
Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if the European or national legislator has provided for this in Union regulations, laws or other provisions applicable to the person responsible. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless further storage of the data is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
Collecting general information (server log files)
When you access our website, general information is collected automatically. This information (server log files) includes such things as the type of web browser, the operating system used and the domain name of your Internet service provider. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary for the correct delivery of content requested by you from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our Internet presence and the underlying technology. We reserve the right to have data checked subsequently (by a certified company) if we become aware of concrete evidence of illegal use.
Google Analytics: not installed
Google Maps: not installed
Our website uses links to external sites which are specially marked and whose content is not on our server. The external content of these links was checked when the links were created. However, it cannot be guaranteed that the content may not have been subsequently changed by the providers. Should you notice that the content of the external providers violates current legislation, please let us know.
No contact form
No emails are sent via our website. We do not have a contact form on our website. When you click on our email address, your personal email program will open automatically and your data will be sent by your email program. We would like to point out once again that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by email) can be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible. We also offer the option of telephoning (if you have reservations about sending us an email).

How is personal data collected?
We only store and make available data that we receive voluntarily from you. We will receive this data if, for example, you are interested in our company and would like further information. As a rule, however, we only collect data that is required for the provision of our services. Should we ask you for additional data, this is supplied on a voluntary basis.
Right to information, correction, blocking or deletion
You have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. We process personal data exclusively on the basis of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Furthermore, we are at your disposal for any questions regarding the collection, processing and use of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this and further questions on the subject of personal data, at the address given in the legal notice.
We reserve the right to amend this data privacy statement from time to time so that it always complies with current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data privacy statement, e.g. when introducing new services. Any further visit will then be subject to the new data privacy statement.
