Unless otherwise stated in the following, we will only store your data for as long as required to achieve the intended processing purpose or to fulfil our contractual or statutory obligations. In particular, such statutory retention requirements may result from regulations under commercial or tax law.
For certain processing activities, we rely on service providers. These processing activities include, for example, hosting, maintenance and support for IT systems, customer and client management, order processing, accounting, marketing or destruction of paper files and data carriers. A ‘processor’ is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller. Processors process data not for their own purposes but solely for the controller and are contractually obliged to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures ensuring data protection. Apart from that, we may transfer your data to postal and delivery services, our bank, consultants/auditors or the fiscal authority if necessary. Should your data be transferred to further recipients, you can find this information under the description of the respective processing activity.
If you exercise your rights pursuant to Art. 15 to 22 GDPR, we process the personal data transferred in order for us to grant you your rights and to acquire proof thereof. For the purpose of providing information and preparing such information, we will process the stored data only for this purpose as well as for purposes of data protection control and otherwise restrict processing in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR. These processing operations are based on Art. 6 section 1 letter c) GDPR in combination with Art. 15 to 22 GDPR and section 34 para. 2 BDSG.
As the data subject, you are entitled to exercise your rights against us. In particular, you have the following rights:
Pursuant to Art. 21 section 1 GDPR, you have the right to object to processing activities based on Art. 6 section 1 letter e) or letter f) GDPR on grounds relating to your particular situation.

You can contact our data protection officer via the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
During use of our website, we collect information that you provide yourself. We also automatically collect certain information about your use of the site during your visit to the site. In data protection law, the IP address is also considered personal data. An IP address is assigned to each device connected to the internet by the internet provider so that it can send and receive data.
When using our website for informative purposes only, general information that your browser transfers to our server is initially stored automatically (not via registration). This includes by default: browser type/-version, operating system used, page called, the previously visited page (referrer URL), IP address, date and time of server request and HTTP status code. The processing is carried out in pursuit of our legitimate interests and is based on Art. 6 section 1 letter f) GDPR. This processing serves the technical administration and security of the website. The IP address is anonymized after 24 hours. For this the last octet is zeroed. The data collected will be deleted after seven days unless there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete indications and further examination and processing of the information is necessary for this reason. We are unable to identify you as a data subject based on the information collected. Art. 15 to 22 GDPR therefore do not apply pursuant to Art. 11 section 2 GDPR, unless you provide additional information to enable your identification in order to exercise the rights set out in these articles.
Visiting our website may involve the transfer of certain personal data to third countries, i.e. countries where the DSGVO is not applicable law. Such a transfer shall be authorised if the European Commission has decided that an adequate level of data protection is ensured in such third country. In the absence of such an adequacy decision by the European Commission, personal data will only be transferred to a third country if appropriate safeguards are in place in accordance with Art. 46 DSGVO or if one of the conditions of Art. 49 DSGVO is met. Unless otherwise stated below, we use as appropriate safeguards the EU standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors in third countries: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087.
Our website provides a contact form, through which you can enquire an offer from us. Your data is transferred encrypted (note the ‚https‘ in the address bar of your browser).

You have the alternative option to send us an email. We process the data for the purpose of handling your request. If your request relates to the establishment or execution of a contract with us, the processing of your data is based on Art. 6 section 1 letter b) GDPR.

The legal basis results from our legal obligation to document your consent (Art. 6 section 1 Letter c) in connection with Art. 7 section 1 GDPR). We also analyze the reading behavior and opening rates of our newsletter. For this purpose, we collect and process pseudonymized usage data which we do not merge with your e-mail address or IP address.

You can object to this at any time by contacting one of the contact channels mentioned above. For the administration of the subscribers and the sending of the newsletter, we use the service Klaviyo of the Klaviyo, Inc. (USA).

Usercentrics is a product of the company Usercentrics GmbH (Germany), which enables users of our website to grant or revoke their consent to certain data processing procedures.
