Privacy Policy

We think, that trust is a fundamental part of building a successful and long-term business relationship.

Speaking about data protection, we would like to earn your trust through a high degree of transparency and responsible action. That is why we disclose in this document what happens to your data transmitted to us.

The processing of all personal data (including, for example, your name, postal address, e-mail address, etc.) is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and country-specific data protection laws applicable to us, e.g. German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

Personal data is defined as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an ID number, a location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

In the following you will receive further information about how we process your personal data and how you can claim your rights according to the applicable data protection laws.

Anonymous surfing and basic processing of personal data

The use of our website is basically possible without providing any personal data.

However, for certain services of our business, it is necessary to process personal data. If there is no legal basis for this processing, we will of course obtain your explicit consent in advance.

We ensure the protection of all personal data processed via this website by numerous technical and organisational measures. This is done according to the current state of the art.

Our website consistently uses approved encryption technology for data transmission.

Legal basis and purpose of data processing

We process personal data exclusively on the basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and country-specific data protection laws applicable to us.

Based on your consent (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR)

On the basis of your explicit consent, we will only process your personal data for the agreed purpose.

You can revoke your consent at any time (please contact the above-mentioned responsible data processing department as stated in the coloured box). The revocation of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing until revocation.

Fulfilment of contractual obligations (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. b GDPR)

Your data will be processed to the extent necessary for the provision of our services. The specific purposes of data processing depend on the service booked (for details, please refer to the contract documentation for details).

Due to legal requirements (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. c GDPR) or if in the public interest (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. e GDPR)

We are subject to certain legal obligations, in particular with regard to accounting obligations and tax law. Therefore, we also process your personal data, for example, for the fulfilment of tax control and reporting obligations.

Balancing of interests (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR)

If necessary, your data will be processed to protect our legitimate interests and to safeguard the legitimate interests of third parties; this includes, for example...

  • the operation of our business for the benefit of the owner and other entitled parties,
  • the assertion of legal claims and use in the context of legal disputes,
  • ensuring the security of our IT systems.

Recipients of personal data

Only authorised bodies within our company who are responsible for fulfiling contractual and legal obligations are granted regulated access to your personal data. The same applies to service providers commissioned by us who work for us within this framework.

We ensure the protection of your data by organizational and technical measures, according to current state-of-the-art methods. This also applies to service providers commissioned by us.

External hosting

Our servers, including the websites and services on them, are hosted by the following external provider:

  • Vautron Rechenzentrum AG | Obermünsterstraße 9 | 93047 Regensburg, Germany

All personal data collected on our website and the services offered there are stored on dedicated servers in a European data center of the aforementioned hosting provider.

This data includes log data for server access (e.g. IP addresses), communication data (including metadata), contract and contact data as well as all data that you submit to us via our website (e.g. by web forms), including communication by e-mail.

Basis of processing

The data is processed either on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR, for the purpose of fulfilling contractual obligations towards potential and existing customers (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. b GDPR) or on the basis of Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests to the secure operation of our servers and the possibility of delivering web content.

If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 par. 1 TDDDG ("Telekommunikation-Digitale-Dienste-Datenschutz-Gesetz", "telecommunications digital services data protection law" (Germany)) insofar as the consent includes the storage of information (e.g. cookies, local storage) or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TDDDG. Consent can be revoked at any time for the future.

A "controller-processor agreement" (CPA) has been concluded between us and the aforementioned hosting provider. This agreement, which is required by data protection law, ensures that the processing of personal data by the hosting provider is carried out exclusively in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

Transfer of data to third countries or organisations outside the European Union

Data transmission in this context only takes place if...

  • you have given us your explicit consent,
  • it is absolutely necessary for the service to be provided (e.g. to fulfil our contractual obligations),
  • a legal regulation requires this (e.g. tax reporting obligation).

To perform certain tasks, we use service providers who may be located in a third country (e.g. datacenter). This is permitted exclusively on the basis of Article 45 GDPR, in the context of a decision of the European Commission on the existence of an adequate level of protection in this third country.

Unless the European Commission made a decision, data submission is done only if appropriate guarantees are provided (e.g. data protection provisions approved by the European Commission or the local authority under a defined procedure) and if enforceable rights and effective remedies are provided.

In contracts signed with such service providers, we always oblige them to comply with the European data protection level.

Storage duration of personal data

Your personal data will remain stored for as long as the legally defined retention periods require it. After this period, the corresponding data will be deleted immediately, unless they are required for the further fulfilment of contractual obligations or for the initiation of a contract.

There is a right of appeal to a responsible data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR and §19 BDSG).
