1.1. Scope of personal data processing

We generally only collect and use our users’ personal data to the extent necessary for providing a functioning website and for our content and products and services. Our users’ personal data are routinely collected and used only after the user’s consent has been obtained. An exception is made in cases where it is not possible to obtain the consent beforehand for factual reasons and processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

Personal data are only collected if you voluntarily communicate that to us in the context of your order. We exclusively use the data you have provided to process and complete your order unless you have given further consent. Upon complete processing of the contract and full payment of the purchase price, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after the retention period for tax and business records has expired insofar as you have not explicitly consented to further use of your data.

1.2. Disclosure of personal data

We will not disclose your personal data to third parties – with the exception of and to the extent indicated in this data privacy statement, – unless you have effectively consented to a disclosure of data or we are entitled or obligated to disclose data as a result of statutory provisions and/or orders of the authorities or courts. In particular, this may comprise the provision of information for purposes of criminal prosecution, averting danger or asserting intellectual property rights.

1.3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

To the extent that we obtain the consent for the processing procedures of personal data from the data subject, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

During the processing of personal data, which is necessary for the performance of a contract, the contracting party of which the data subject is, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

To the extent that personal data need to be processed to comply with a legal obligation that is binding on our company, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is needed to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interests, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing.

1.4. Deletion of data and duration of storage

The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases. The data may be stored beyond the foregoing if provided for by the European or national legislator in legal Union regulations, laws or other regulations which the co

the website from which the user transfers contains personal data.

The  data  are  also  stored  in  the log   files  of  our   system.  The   user’s  IP  addresses  or   other   data

Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log

files.

2.3. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is needed to permit delivery of the website

Storage extending beyond that limit is possible. In this case, the user's IP address will be erased or

masked, so that it can no longer be associated with the viewing client.

the operation of the website. Therefore, the user has no option of objection.

website activity for the website operator and to provide other services associated with the use of

the website and use of the Internet. If required by law or to the extent that third parties process

controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data. 

7.3. Exceptions

There is no right to erasure if the processing is necessary

1. To exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;

2. To comply with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State

restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you were disclosed,

unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.

7.5. Right to data portability

You   have   the   right   to  receive   the   personal   data  concerning   you   that   you   have   provided   to  the

controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the

right to have these data transmitted to another controller without hindrance from the controller to

which the personal data were provided, if

GDPR or a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR and

In   exercising   this   right,   you   also   have   the   right   to   have   the   personal   data   concerning   you

transmitted   directly   from   one   controller   to   another   if   this   is   technically   feasible.   This   may   not

adversely affect the freedoms and rights of others.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the

performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested

in the controller.

7.6. Right to object

You   have   the   right   to   object,   on   grounds   relating   to   your   particular   situation,   at   any   time   to

processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR; including

profiling based on these provisions. 

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate

compelling   legitimate   grounds   for   the   processing   which   override   your   interests,   rights   and

freedoms,   or   the   processing   serves   the   purpose   of   establishing,   exercising   or   defending   legal

claims.

Where personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the

right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such

marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you shall

no longer be processed for these purposes.

In   the   context   of   the   use   of   information   society   services,   you   have   the   opportunity   –

notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – to exercise your right to object by automated means using

technical specifications.

7.7. Right to withdraw the declaration of consent regarding data privacy

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent regarding data privacy at any time. A

withdrawal   of  consent  does  not   affect  the  lawfulness   of  any  processing   done  up  to the  time  of

withdrawal.

7.8. Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You   have   the   right   not   to   be   subjected   to   a   decision   based   solely   on   automated   processing,

including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.

This shall not apply if the decision 

1. Is necessary to enter into or perform a contract between you and the controller;

2. Is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and these

legal   provisions   also   lay   down   suitable   measures   to   safeguard   your   rights   and   freedoms   and

legitimate interests, or

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to

Art. 9 (1) GDPR unless Art. 9 (2) (a) or (g) GDPR apply and suitable measures have been taken to

protect your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in sections 1 and 3, the controller shall implement suitable measures to

safeguard  your  rights  and  freedoms  and  legitimate  interests,  at   least   the  right   to  obtain  human

intervention  on  the part   of   the controller,   to express  your   own  point  of  view   and  to contest   the

decision.

7.9. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without   prejudice   to   any   other   administrative   or   judicial   remedy,   you   have   the   right   to   lodge   a

complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence,

place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you are of the opinion that the processing of

personal data relating to you violates the GDPR. 

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant

on the progress and the outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy

pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
