Data processing on our website
When using our website, we collect and use information that you provide by yourself. We also automatically collect certain information about your use of the site during your visit on the site. In data protection law, the IP address is also considered as a personal date. An IP address is assigned to each device connected to the internet by the internet provider so that it can send and receive data.
1. Processing Server-Log-Files
When using our website for purely informative purposes, general information that your browser transmits to our server is initially stored automatically (not via registration). This includes by default: browser type/-version, operating system used, page called, the previously visited page (referrer URL), IP address, date and time of server request and HTTP status code. The processing is carried out to ensure our legitimate interests and is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 Sec. 1 letter f) GDPR. This processing provides the technical administration and security of the website. The stored data will be deleted after one month unless there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete indications and further examination and processing of the information is necessary for this reason. We are not able to identify you as a data subject based on the stored information. Art. 15 to 22 GDPR therefore do not apply pursuant to Art. 11 Sec. 2 GDPR, unless you provide additional information to enable your identification in order to exercise the rights set out in these articles.
2. Data transmission to the USA
Visiting our website may involve the transmission of certain personal data to the USA. For the transfer of data to the USA as a non-member country, a country in which the GPDR is not applicable law, the European Commission has decided in accordance with Art. 45 GDPR that an adequate level of data protection is required for companies certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The transfer to the USA will then take place in a permissible manner. Certified companies are listed by the U.S. Department of Commerce at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.
3. Contact form and requests
Our website provides a contact form, through which you can enquire an offer from us. Your data is transferred encrypted (note the ‚https‘ in the address bar of your browser). All data fields marked as mandatory are necessary to be filled in for the handling of your request. Failure to provide the required information will result in us being unable to process your request. You have the alternative option to send us an email.
We process the data for the purpose of handling your request. If your request relates to the establishment or execution of a contract with us, the processing of your data is based on Art. 6 Sec. 1 letter b) GDPR. In all other cases we process data out of our legitimate interest in contacting the person enquiring. The latter data processing finds its legal basis in Art. 6 Sec. 1 letter f) GDPR.

7. Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that Google will truncate the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Information on the cookies used by Google can be found at https://policies.google.com/technologies/types?hl=en.
The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data.
We use Google Analytics only with your consent. The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 Sec. 1 letter a) GDPR. The processing serves the legitimate interest of the analysis of user behaviour on our website and the possible need-based design. Users can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting the settings to their browser software accordingly or by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that is available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
