We are aware that the protection of your privacy is important to you when using our website. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Therefore, we want you to know when we store which data and how we use it. We would like to inform you about our data protection measures with this data protection declaration.
Collection of personal data
In the following, we inform you about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data is all data that can be directly or indirectly related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour.
We process data in accordance with DS-GVO Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) b) c) f). This means that we only process personal data if consent has been given (lit. a), insofar as necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures (lit. b), we are legally obliged to do so (lit. c) or we have a legitimate interest in the processing (lit. f). The corresponding legal basis will be named in each individual case.
When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We delete the data accruing in this context after the purpose of the enquiry has ceased to apply. Depending on the type of enquiry, we collect this data with your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO, for the processing and fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO or in the case of a legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. The legitimate interest here is to answer enquiries and to provide information about our products and services.
