2. Use of our website

Each time you use our website, we collect the access data that your browser automatically transmits to enable you to visit the website. The access data includes in particular:

  • IP-address
  • Date and time of the request as well as time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specifically requested page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Data volume transferred in each case
  • Website where the request comes from
  • Browser
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of browser software

The data processing of this access data is necessary to enable the visit of the website and to ensure the permanent functionality, security and stability of our systems. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. For data protection reasons, log files are not permanently stored or analyzed by us. A comparison with other data or a transfer to third parties, even in excerpts, by us does not take place.

3. Storage period

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. a retention obligation under statutory, such as tax or commercial law, retention periods).

4. Your rights

You have the following rights with respect to the personal data concerning you: You have the right to request information about the personal data we have processed about you. When requesting information, we ask for your understanding that for legal reasons we are forced to demand proof from you that you are the person you claim to be.

Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or deletion or restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to by law. In addition, you have a right to object (see section 6) to processing within the scope of the law. The same applies to a right to data portability.

You have the right to contact a supervisory authority, for example the Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision, which is responsible for us, in the event of complaints about the processing of your personal data.

5. Revocation of your consent

If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you may revoke this consent at any time. Such revocation will only affect the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have expressed it to us.

6. Right to object to the processing of your data

As far as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests from Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, you can object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not particularly necessary for the execution of a contract with you. When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as carried out by us. In the event of your objection, we will examine the merits of the case and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.
