III. General information about data processing
1. The extent to which personal data is processed
We collect and use the personal data of users of our homepage only to the extent that this is necessary for keeping our website, contents and services functioning properly.
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:
- Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a GDPR upon obtaining the consent of the data subject.
- Art. 6 Section 1 lit. b GDPR for processing operations that serve to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party. Included here are processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
- Art. 6 Section 1 lit. c GDPR for processing required to fulfill a legal obligation.
- Art. 6 Section 1 lit. d GDPR, if vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data.
- Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR, if the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest.
3. Data erasure and storage duration
The personal data of users will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable.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.

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.

Processing personal data in this context is solely for processing the contact. In the case of contact via email, this also includes the required legitimate interest in processing the data.
If further personal data are processed during the sending process, then they serve only to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
Your data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of the inquiry. Regarding the personal data from the input form on the contact form and those sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted at the latest after a period of seven days.
If the process is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 section 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO (legitimate interest), you can object to the storage of your personal data at any time. However, we would like to point out that in such a case the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data stored in the course of contacting you will be deleted in this case.

This website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface.

However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass them on to third parties.

The links included in the newsletter you receive contain this ID as well.

For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer where the user’s behavior and the user’s interests are stored.
