Thank you for your interest in our online presence. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.
1. Access Data and Hosting
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Each time a website is accessed, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and then documents said access.
This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. This serves the purpose of Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to the site.
Hosting services through a third party provider
As part of processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides hosting and website display services on our behalf. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework explained here.
