3. Collection and storage of personal data; type, purpose and use

As part of our cooperation, the following information will be collected from you:

  • Salutation, title, first name, surname
  • Address (business and/or private)
  • E-mail address (business and/or private)
  • Telephone number (landline and/or mobile)
  • Fax number
  • Account details
  • Date of birth
  • Identification data

In addition, all information is collected which is necessary for the fulfilment of the contractual relationship with you.

The collection of personal data takes place

  • to fulfil our contractual obligations;
  • to be able to fulfil our legal obligations;
  • to correspond with you;
  • for invoicing or, if required, for dunning purposes;
  • to assert any claims against you

The processing of personal data takes place on the occasion of the initiation or fulfilment of a contractual relationship and is necessary for the aforementioned purposes for the processing and fulfilment of obligations.

The personal data collected will be stored until the end of the legal retention period for businessmen (6, 8 or 10 years after the end of the calendar year in which the contractual relationship was terminated) and deleted thereafter. This does not apply, as an exception, if we are obliged to store the data for a longer period of time due to tax or commercial law storage and documentation obligations (according to German Commercial Code, Criminal Code or Fiscal Code) or if you have consented to storage going beyond this.

4. Disclosure of data to third parties

A transfer of your personal data to third parties does not take place. Exceptions to this only apply to the extent necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you. This includes in particular the passing on to service providers commissioned by us (so-called contract processors) or other third parties whose activities are necessary for the execution of the contract (e.g. shipping companies or banks). The passed on data are used by the third parties exclusively for the named purposes.

5. Rights of the data subject

As a data subject you are entitled to the various rights:

  • Right of revocation: you can revoke your consent granted us at any time. Data processing that is based on the revoked consent may then no longer continue in the future.
  • Right to information: you can request information about the personal data processed by us. This applies in particular for the purposes of processing data, the categories of personal data, possibly the categories of recipients, the planned storage period, possibly the origin of your data if these were not collected from us.
  • Right to correct: you can request the correction of inaccurate or completion of personal data stored with us.
  • Right to delete: you can request the deletion of your personal data stored with us, unless the processing of such data is required to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • Right to restrict the processing: you can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data as far as the accuracy of your data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful but you reject its deletion. Furthermore, you are entitled to this right, if we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend your rights. Furthermore, you have this right, if you have objected to the processing of your personal data;
  • Right to transfer data: you can request that we provide you with the personal information you submitted us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. Alternatively, you can request as far as possible the direct transfer of personal information you have provided us to another person in charge.
  • Right of appeal: you can appeal to the authority responsible for us, e.g. if you believe that we are processing your personal data in an unlawful manner. The authority responsible for us is: Berlin representative for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Friedrichstr. 219, 10969 Berlin.
  • Right to object: if we process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest, you have the right to appeal against this processing.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Revocation of your consent for data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator.

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data.

Data collection on our website

Cookies
Some websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your computer until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies which are necessary for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data will not be merged with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

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

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place.
