II. General information on data processing
1. Scope of personal data processing
We normally process our users’ personal data only if this is required to ensure a functioning website as well as our content and services. The processing of our users’ personal data takes place regularly only if the user gives consent. An exception applies in such cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for practical reasons and processing the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data, which is required to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are required to carry out precontractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation, which our company is subject to, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is required to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first interest referred to, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data deletion and storage period
The data subject’s personal data shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may continue beyond this if it has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the party responsible is subject. Blocking or deleting the data also occurs if a storage period prescribed by the norms referred to expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of a contract.

III. Website provision and creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data processing
Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically records data and information from the system of the computer making the access. The following data are collected in the process.
(1) Information about the browser type and the version used
(2) The user’s operating system
(3) The user’s Internet service provider
(4) The user’s IP address
(5) Date and time of access

The data are stored in our system’s log files. Not affected by this are the user’s IP addresses or other data, which enable the data to be assigned to a user. Storage of these data together with the user’s other personal data does not take place.

2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing
Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. As such, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest in data processing is in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4. Duration of storage
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of collecting them. In the case of collecting data to provide the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended.

5. Objection and removal option
The collection of data to provide the website and storage of the data in log files is essential for the website’s operation. Consequently, the user has no option to object.
