For which purposes and on which legal basis is your personal data processed?

The processing of your personal data serves the following purposes:

  • Delivering the requested content. We only store your full IP address for as long as is technically required to display the requested page.
  • Transmitting your IP address to a service provider who will match your public IP address with non-personal company information. This company information is stored by us. In this step, your IP address will be stored neither by our service provider nor by us.
  • Protecting us from attacks and ensuring proper operation of our website. We store the data in question only temporarily and in an access-protected way for a maximum of 180 days. Exempt from deletion after a maximum of 180 days is data about accesses which is necessary to trace attacks and disruptions.
  • Maintaining the safety and security of our premises (issuing of daily passes when access-ing our premises, access control)
  • Compliance with legal requirements (e.g. tax and commercial law retention obligations to prevent economic crime or money laundering)
  • Settlement of legal disputes, enforcement of existing contracts and the assertion, exercise, and defense of legal claims.
  • We store the IP address of your computer after shortening it by the last octet - i.e. in anonymous form - in order to analyze the usage behavior of visitors on our website and thus to improve our website. The aforementioned shortening of the IP address for this purpose is carried out immediately after collecting the data. This means we do not collect any personal information about your usage behavior on our website.
  • If you contact us via a contact form on our website or by email, we use the personal data mentioned above to answer your inquiry and to fulfill it in the best possible way. This personal data will be stored for as long as is necessary to answer and fulfill your inquiry.
  • Login data of our employees is processed to give them access to the internal content area.

Processing of the categories of personal data mentioned above is required to achieve these purposes.
The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 (1) (b) and (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
In case of explicit consent, Article 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation also applies.
If we plan to process the personal data of our contact persons for a purpose not mentioned above, we will inform them in advance.

To whom will your personal data be transferred?

Within our group of companies, your personal data will be transferred to certain companies if they perform central data processing tasks for the companies affiliated to the group or if this is necessary to fulfill the purposes mentioned above.

We may disclose your personal Information to courts, regulatory authorities or law firms to the extent permitted and necessary to comply with applicable law or to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims.

We also collaborate with service providers. These service providers only work according to our instructions and are contractually bound to comply with the applicable data protection requirements.

Some recipients of your personal data may be located in countries outside the European Economic Area ("third-party countries") where the applicable law does not ensure the same level of data protection as within the European Union. In this case, we will take appropriate measures to ensure adequate guarantees for protecting your personal data.

We will therefore only transfer your personal data to external recipients in third-party countries if they have concluded standard EU contractual clauses with us or if they have introduced Binding Corporate Rules.

Additional information and a copy of the measures implemented can be obtained from the data pro-tection officer mentioned above.

For how long is your personal data stored?

If no explicit storage period is specified during data collection (e.g. in the context of a declaration of consent), your personal data will be deleted if it is no longer required to fulfill the purpose of storage, unless legal obligations (e.g. commercial and tax storage obligations) prevent deletion.

Which data protection rights can be asserted?

You can request information from the above address about your personal data stored. In addition, you can request correction or deletion of your personal data under certain circumstances. You may also have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data and the right to have the data you provided us with published in a structured, common, and machine-readable format.

If you have given your consent to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. Please note that any revocation is only effective for the future. Processing operations that took place before the revocation are not affected.

Right of objection

In the event that your personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time without stating any reasons. If we process your personal data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to this processing for reasons arising from your particular situation. In the event of revocation, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

To whom can you address your complaint?

You can address your complaint to the above-mentioned data protection officer or to a data protection supervisory authority. Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is contrary to the basic data protection regulation in particular in the member state in which you are resident or in which the place of alleged infringement is located.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

You can also address your complaint to the supervisory authority responsible for us:
