II. General information on data processing
In principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only as far as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as also our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users are typically only carried out with the user's consent. An exception applies when it is not possible to obtain prior consent for practical reasons, and legal regulations permit the data processing.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. If the processing of personal data is required for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third-party and the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions (e.g., based on the German Tax Code in some instances for ten years) to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the norms mentioned above expires unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
III. Website Provisioning
Each time our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data may be collected:

- The user's Internet service provider

- Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
- Websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
We use session cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some website elements require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change. (e.g., to store the language settings of a user).
The legal basis for processing personal data using necessary cookies is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without cookies. For these, the browser must be recognized even after a page change. The user data collected through technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.
