2. Principles of collection and storage of your data

In our privacy policy we explain to you in which processes we collect and store your data and for what purpose this happens. Should we not be able to answer your questions completely, please contact us using the contact details given in section 1.

a. Purpose and legal basis of data processing

We process your data for the purpose of ensuring that you can use our website without disruption, to process your enquiries and to process the contracts concluded with you. The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 of the German Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO).

b. Deletion or blocking of the data in case of loss of purpose

In principle, the dictates of data economy and limited storage apply. We only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes described for the individual measures. After the purpose has ceased to apply, we delete your data. If German law requires us to store data for longer periods, we delete the data after the statutory period has expired.

c. Rights to information, correction, data transmission Deletion and objection

You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. If the data stored with us is incorrect, you have the right to correct it. You can also request that we transfer your data stored with us to you or to a third party named by you in a standard file format.

You can request the deletion of your personal data at any time, provided that we no longer need the data for the execution of a contract with you. Furthermore, the deletion may be opposed by legal storage obligations. In this case, however, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your data. If we process data which we have collected from the outset for purposes other than the execution of a contract concluded with you, you can object to the further processing of the data at any time.

In order to exercise the rights described above, please contact us using the contact details given in section 1.

d. Right of complaint

You have the right to complain to a German supervisory authority for data protection.

e. Encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use the state-of-the-art SSL encryption method via HTTPS.

f. Change of our data protection regulations

We will always adapt our privacy policy to the current legal requirements. Such a need for adaptation may also result from the fact that we are expanding our range of services. If you visit our website again, the new data protection declaration will apply.
