If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR, the purposes mentioned also represent our legitimate interests.

2.1. Visiting the Website

When you visit our Website for informational purposes, we collect, store and process so-called „log data“. We store these temporarily and anonymously as so-called server log files on our web server in order to guarantee the display of our Website and its stability and security.

This applies, for example, to:

  • operating system and information on the Internet browser used, including installed add-ons;
  • IP address (Internet Protocol address) of the end device from which the online offer is accessed;
  • Internet address of the website from which the online offer was accessed (so-called origin or referrer URL);
  • name of the service provider through which the online offer is accessed;
  • name of the retrieved files or information;
  • Date and time and duration of the retrieval.

The processing is carried out on the basis of a balancing of interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR, which always takes your interests into account.

If you use our contact form on our Website, we collect the following data from you:

The data will only be used to answer your questions. Unless explicitly stated in this privacy policy, the data will not be passed on to third parties.

If you give us your express consent, we will occasionally send you press releases or information about company developments by e-mail. For this purpose, we process your name and e-mail address as well as your company name. When you register for the sending of aforementioned information, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure.

The legal basis for sending our information is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
