Basically, we collect and use our users’ personal data only after they give their consent. An exception to this principle applies in cases where processing the data by statutory provisions is permitted or when obtaining prior consent for actual reasons is not possible.
The legal basis for processing personal data is basically based on:
The personal data of users will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable. Additional storage may be provided for by European or national legislators through EU regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. Blocking or deleting the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires unless there is a need for additional storage of the data for concluding a contract or fulfilling the contract.

Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. This data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.

If your data is stored in log files, it will be deleted after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible, whereby in this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated. This means that it is then no longer possible to assign the client who has accessed our website.

Only in exceptional cases will we have data processed outside the European Union in the context of using third-party services. We will only allow your data to be processed in a third country if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO are fulfilled.
