Questions about data privacy and exercising your rights

If you have any questions about data protection or would like to exercise your rights, please contact us at [email protected] or add "data protection" to the above address.

When do we process personal data

We process personal data that you actively submit to us through your input. Furthermore, we automatically process personal data based on the use of our services. In particular, the following cases may therefore result in the processing of your personal data:

  • Visiting our website
  • Booking our Services
  • Contacting us
  • Analysis of why which visitors come to our website and how they use it
  • Analysis of the success of our advertising measures
  • Defense against attacks against our technical infrastructure

For details, please refer to the following:

Visiting our website

When you visit our website, the company responsible for operating the website stores the public IP address, the type of device and the browser used to visit our website, together with the date and time of access. The IP address is a unique numeric address under which your computer sends or retrieves data on the Internet. As a rule, we or our service provider do not know who is behind an IP address, unless you provide us with data during the use of our website that enables us to identify you. Furthermore, the identification of a user may occur if we take legal action (e.g. in the event of attacks against our website) and become aware of the identity of a user in the course of the investigation. Therefore, as a rule, you do not have to worry that we can assign your IP address to you.

Our service provider uses the IP address so that you can access and use our website, to detect and defend against attacks against our website. Unfortunately, there are always attacks against websites in order to cause damage to their operators or users (e.g. preventing access to the site, spying on data, spreading malware (e.g. viruses) or other unlawful purposes). Such attacks would impair the intended use of our website and its functionality, as well as the safety of visitors to our website. The processing of the IP address including the time of access is carried out to defend against such attacks and thus against potential dangers for us and the users of our website. Through our service provider, we pursue with this processing the legitimate interest of maintaining our business operations as well as the defense against unlawful interference against us as well as the visitors of our website. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. The stored IP data is deleted by anonymization when it is no longer needed for the detection or defense of an attack.

Processing of special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR.

Insofar as you provide us with data for processing that could be considered special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR (e.g. ethnic origin, religious or ideological beliefs, data on sex life or sexual orientation), we process this solely on the basis of your voluntary information and exclusively for the provision of the functions of our offer for which this data is requested and used.

Contact possibilities

If you send us a message via one of the contact options offered, we will use the data you provide us with to process your request. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR. If your request serves the conclusion or execution of a contract with us, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR. The data will be deleted after your request has been dealt with. If we are required by law to store the data for a longer period, it will be deleted after the expiry of the relevant period.

Service booking

If you book our services, we process the data you provide for the conclusion of the contract and its execution. To the extent necessary, data will be transferred to service providers for the billing of your purchase. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR.

Together with our payment service provider, we process this data in conjunction with your IP address to detect and prevent fraud attempts. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. We thereby pursue the goal of protecting ourselves from fraudulent transactions in each case.

Data stored in connection with the conclusion of a contract for the booking of a service will be deleted after the expiry of the statutory retention period. Insofar as legal recording and storage obligations exist due to the processing of a purchase contract (e.g. storage of invoices according to tax law), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 1 para. 1 c) GDPR.

We delete the data when they are no longer required for the performance of the respective contract and there are no longer any legal retention obligations.
