4 Cookies

So-called cookies are used on the website. These are data packets that are exchanged between the server of the company website and the visitor's browser. These are stored by the devices used (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when the website is visited. In this respect, cookies cannot cause any damage to the devices used. In particular, they do not contain any viruses or other malware. Information is stored in the cookies that results in each case in connection with the specific end device used. Under no circumstances can the company obtain direct knowledge of the identity of the visitor to the website.

Cookies are largely accepted according to the basic browser settings. The browser settings can be configured in such a way that cookies are either not accepted on the devices used or that a special message is displayed before a new cookie is created. However, it should be noted that deactivating cookies may mean that not all functions of the website can be used to the best possible effect.

The use of cookies serves to make the use of the company's website more convenient. For example, session cookies can be used to track whether the visitor has already visited individual pages of the website. After leaving the website, these session cookies are automatically deleted.

Temporary cookies are used to improve user-friendliness. They are stored on the visitor's device for a temporary period. When the website is visited again, it is automatically recognised that the visitor has already accessed it at an earlier time and which entries and settings were made so that they do not have to be repeated.

Cookies are also used to analyse visits to the website for statistical purposes and to improve the service. These cookies make it possible to automatically recognise that the website has already been accessed by the visitor on a subsequent visit. The cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time.

The data processed by cookies are justified for the above-mentioned purposes to safeguard the legitimate interests of the company in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence  1 letter f) GDPR.

5 Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal email. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

The transmission is secured via SSL/TLS encryption.

6 Your rights as a data subject

If your personal data is processed when you visit our website, you have the following rights as a "data subject" within the meaning of the GDPR:

6.1 Information

You can request information from us as to whether your personal data is being processed by us. There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information would violate the duty of confidentiality pursuant to Section 83 StBerG or if the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular due to an overriding legitimate interest of a third party. Notwithstanding this, there may be an obligation to provide information if your interests outweigh the interest in confidentiality, in particular taking into account the threat of damage. The right to information is also excluded if the data is only stored because it may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or exclusively serves the purposes of data backup or data protection control, provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organisational measures. If the right to information is not excluded in your case and your personal data is processed by us, you can request the following information from us:

  • Purposes of the processing,
  • Categories of personal data processed by you,
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data is disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries
  • if possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the storage period
  • the existence of a right to rectification or erasure or restriction of processing of personal data concerning you or a right to object to such processing
  • the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority
  • if the personal data have not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information on the origin of the data
  • the existence of automated decision-making and meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of automated decision-making
  • in the case of transfer to recipients in third countries, unless the EU Commission has decided on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR, information on the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 para. 2 GDPR for the protection of personal data.

6.2 Correction and completion

If you discover that we have incorrect personal data about you, you can request that we correct this incorrect data immediately. If your personal data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.

6.3 Erasure

You have the right to erasure ("right to be forgotten"), unless the processing is necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression, the right to information or for compliance with a legal obligation or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest and one of the following reasons applies:

  • The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were processed.
  • The justification for the processing was solely your consent, which you have withdrawn.
  • You have objected to the processing of your personal data, which we have made public.
  • You have objected to the processing of personal data that we have not made public and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing.
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject.

There is no right to erasure if, in the case of lawful non-automated data processing, erasure is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort due to the special type of storage and your interest in erasure is low. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of erasure.

6.4 Restriction of processing

You can request that we restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:

  • You contest the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction may be requested for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
  • The processing is unlawful and you request the restriction of the use of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • You have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR. The restriction of processing can be requested as long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

Restriction of processing means that the personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. We are obliged to inform you before we lift the restriction.

6.5 Data portability

You have a right to data portability if the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a) GDPR) or on a contract to which you are a party and the processing is carried out by automated means. In this case, the right to data portability includes the following rights, provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others You may request to receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from us. Where technically feasible, you can request that we transfer your personal data directly to another controller.

6.6 Objection

If the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter e) GDPR (performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) GDPR (legitimate interest of the controller or a third party), you have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. Once you have exercised your right to object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You can object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes at any time. Profiling will not take place. After exercising this right to object, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.

6.7 Revocation of consent

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation does not affect the legality of the data processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent until receipt of the revocation. After receipt of the revocation, the data processing that was based exclusively on your consent will be discontinued.

6.8 Complaint

If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority that is competent for your place of residence or work or for the place of the alleged infringement.
