  1. Rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right to

  • to confirmation as to whether data concerning them is being processed, to information about the data being processed, to further information about the data processing and to copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 DSGVO);

In addition, the Provider is obliged to inform all recipients to whom data has been disclosed by the Provider about any correction or deletion of data or restriction of processing that takes place on the basis of Articles 16, 17 (1), 18 DSGVO. However, this obligation does not exist insofar as this notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Notwithstanding the above, the user has a right to information about these recipients. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Likewise, users and data subjects have the right to object to the future processing of data concerning them in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, insofar as the data is processed by the provider in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing is permitted.

III. Information on data processing

Your data processed during the use of our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations and no other information on individual processing procedures is provided below.

server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted by your Internet browser to us or to our web space provider. With these so-called server log files, among other things, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you have accessed our website (referrer URL), the website(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which the use of our website takes place are collected.

The data collected in this way is temporarily stored, but not together with other data from you.

This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

The data will be deleted again after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidentiary purposes. Otherwise, the data is exempt from deletion in whole or in part until final clarification of an incident.

Cookies

  1. a) Session-Cookies

We use so-called cookies with our internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your end device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.  

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies data are processed for contract initiation or contract execution.

If the processing does not serve the initiation or execution of a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

When you close your Internet browser, these session cookies are deleted.

  1. b) Third-party cookies

Where applicable, cookies from partner companies with which we cooperate for the purpose of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our website are also used with our website

The details of this, in particular the purposes and legal bases of the processing of such third-party cookies, please refer to the following information.

  1. c) Elimination possibility

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by setting your internet browser. Likewise, you can delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on your specific Internet browser used. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the specific Flash player you use. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

However, if you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

Customer account / registration function

If you create a customer account with us via our website, we will collect and store the data you entered during registration (e.g. your name, address or e-mail address) exclusively for pre-contractual services, for the fulfillment of the contract or for the purpose of customer care (e.g. to provide you with an overview of your previous orders with us or to be able to offer you the so-called notepad function). At the same time, we then store the IP address and the date of your registration along with the time. Of course, this data will not be passed on to third parties.

In the course of the further registration process, your consent to this processing will be obtained and reference will be made to this privacy policy. The data collected by us in this process will be used exclusively for the provision of the customer account. 

Insofar as you consent to this processing, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing.

If the opening of the customer account also serves pre-contractual measures or the fulfillment of the contract, the legal basis for this processing is also Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you may revoke your consent to the opening and maintenance of the customer account at any time with effect for the future. To do this, you only need to inform us of your revocation.

The data collected in this respect will be deleted as soon as processing is no longer necessary. However, we must observe retention periods under tax and commercial law.

checking creditworthiness and scoring

Insofar as we offer you the basic option of payment by invoice as part of our range of goods or services and you make use of this option, we reserve the right to obtain credit information from a credit agency (such as Creditreform, Schufa, Bürgel or infoscore) on the basis of mathematical-statistical methods. For this purpose, your data, insofar as they are relevant to the contract, such as your name and address, will be forwarded to the credit agency. We use the subsequent information about the statistical probability of non-payment for our decision whether to offer you payment by invoice.

The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interest in the fail-safe nature of the receivable pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 lit. f) DSGVO.

contact requests / contact possibility

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your request - without their provision, we can not answer your request or at best limited.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted if your inquiry has been answered conclusively and the deletion does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data, e.g. in the case of subsequent contract processing.

online job applications / publication of job advertisements

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us via our website. For these digital applications, your applicant and application data will be collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of handling the application process.

The legal basis for this processing is § 26 para. 1 p. 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 para. Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.

If an employment contract is concluded after the application process, we will store the data you provided during the application in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organizational and administrative process - this, of course, in compliance with the more extensive legal obligations.

The legal basis for this processing is also Section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 (1) DSGVO. Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.

If an application is rejected, we automatically delete the data provided to us two months after notification of the rejection. However, the data will not be deleted if it is required to be stored for a longer period of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings due to statutory provisions, e.g. due to the obligation to provide evidence in accordance with the AGG.

The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO and § 24 (1) No. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defense or enforcement.

If you expressly consent to a longer storage of your data, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be further processed based on your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. However, you can of course revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO by declaration to us with effect for the future.
