(2) When you contact us via email, we store the data that you notify (your email address, where applicable your name and your telephone number) in order to answer your ques-tions. We erase the data that accrues in this context once storage is no longer necessary, or restrict processing, if there are statutory obligations to retain data.

  • right to information,
  • right to rectification or erasure,
  • right to restriction of processing,

(2) You also have the right to lodge a complaint to a data protection supervisory authority regarding the processing by us of your personal data.

 

5. Collection of personal data on visits to our website

(1) If you use our website purely for informational purposes, that is, if you do not register or transmit additional information, we collect only the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you want to look at our website, we collect the following data that are technically necessary for us to show you our website, to guarantee stability and security, and for statistical evaluation (the legal basis is Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR):

  • IP address
  • date and time of the enquiry
  • time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • content of the request (specific page)
  • access status / HTTP status code
  • volume of transmitted data
  • the website from which the request comes
  • browser
  • operating system and its interface and
  • language and version of the browser software.

(2) In addition to the above-mentioned data, when you use our website cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored and assigned on your hard disk by the browser that you use, and through which specific information flows to the lo-cation that sets the cookies (in this case, us). Cookies cannot carry out programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer on the whole more user-friendly and effective.

(3) Use of cookies:
a) This website uses the following types of cookies, and their scope and method of func-tioning are explained below:

  • transient cookies (see b)
  • persistent cookies (see c).

b) Transient cookies are automatically erased when you close the browser. These include in particular session cookies, which store a so-called session ID with which various en-quiries from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. In this way your com-puter can be recognised when you return to our website. Session cookies are erased when you log out or close the browser.

c) Persistent cookies are automatically erased after a preset period of time, which can vary depending on the cookie. You can erase cookies at any time in the security set-tings of your browser.

d) You can configure your browser setting in accordance with your wishes and, for exam-ple, refuse acceptance of third-party cookies or of all cookies. We must point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.

e) We set cookies so that we can identify you on subsequent visits, if you have an ac-count with us. Otherwise you have to log in again on each visit.

 

6. Collection of personal data when the contact field is used

If you communicate with us using our contact field, we collect the following data: name, address and message (obligatory fields). Only you know the reason for the contact. The reaction to this describes the purpose of the processing. Where a concrete obligation is 

involved, whether in connection with its initiation, implementation or termination, the legal basis for the processing is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. In this case we store the data up to the end of the statutory retention period. In all other cases the legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Communication outside an obligation is in our mutual interest. We store your data up to the expiry of conceivable retention periods and statutes of limita-tion.

 

7. Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information on your use of this website that the cookie generates is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymising is activated on this website, Google first abbreviates your IP address in Member States of the European Union or in other states that are parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services to the website oper-ator connected with use of the website and Internet use.

(2) The IP address transmitted in the framework of Google Analytics by your browser will not be combined with other data by Google.

(3) You can prevent storage of cookies with a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we must point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to the full extent. In addition, you can prevent the recording of the data (incl. your IP address) generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website for Google and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and in-stalling the browser plug-in available through the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are further processed in an abbreviated form, so that a direct link to a particular person can be ruled out. If the data that are collected in relation to you can be referred to you, this is therefore ruled out immediately and the personal data are erased without delay.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and to improve it regularly. We can improve our offers through the acquired statistics and design them to be more interesting for you as the user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data are transferred to the USA Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield: .privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Ana-lytics is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

(6) Information from the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, fax: +353 (1) 436 1001.

[(7) This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out through a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your use in your customer account under "My data", "Personal data".]

(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balancing of interests, you can object at any time to the processing. This is the case if processing in particular is not required to fulfil a contract with you, which we illustrate in each case in the subse-quent description of the functions. If you exercise your right to object, we ask you to show the reasons why we should not process your personal data in the way that we do.
