I. Collection of personal data as well as purpose, duration of storage, legal basis and existing objection and elimination possibilities

1. Visiting the website

Each time a user accesses a page of my website, the system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer, whereby the following data is collected:

(1) IP address of the user,
(2) Date and time of access,
(3) transmitted data volume,
(4) Operating system and web browser of the user,
(5) Host name of the accessing computer,
(6) requested web page or file,
(7) URL previously visited by the user.

The storage of the IP address by the system is necessary for the duration of the session so that the website can be delivered to the user’s computer. It will be made anonymous after the technical requirement is no longer applicable by deleting the last number block (Ipv4) or the last octet (Ipv6).

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended.

The temporary storage of the above-mentioned data is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU- General Data Policy Regulation (hereinafter “GDPR”), namely my legitimate interest in the provision of my website and the investigation of improper use.

There is no possibility of objection here; the person concerned can at best waive the use of my website.

2. Cookies

The website uses cookies (session cookies and permanent cookies) in order to make the visit more pleasant, to be able to adapt my services to the needs of the visitor to my website and to be able to identify the calling browser during an order process even after a page change. For this purpose, we transfer so-called cookies, i.e. small text files which are automatically stored on the end device of the person concerned.

The storage period of the different cookies varies but is no longer than two years. They are stored locally on the end device of the person concerned, so the actual duration of deletion depends on the configuration of the users’s browser software. The person concerned can find out from the operating instructions of his browser software how to delete cookies either automatically or on an occasion-related basis.

The storage of the above-mentioned data is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest), since an analysis can optimize the quality of the website, the visit of the website and only then orders are possible. Otherwise, page changes cannot be recognised. Furthermore, the storage is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the execution of a contract.

The person concerned can block the use of cookies in his or her terminal device or delete the cookies after they have been used. However, the person concerned must then reckon with the fact that under certain circumstances he or she may not be able to use individual functions of the offer. The blocking or deletion of set cookies can be taken from the instructions of the browser software.

3. Contacting

The person concerned can contact me by phone, fax, e-mail, beA. The personal data transmitted – name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, date and time of the enquiry and the description of the request, if necessary contractual data if the enquiry is made in the context of the commencement or execution of a contract – will be stored and processed in order to be able to process the request of the person concerned.

The personal data will be deleted as soon as the data is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose, which is the case when the purpose of the request has been finally fulfilled and there are no contractual or fiscal retention obligations to the contrary. Should the data be the subject of business letters within the meaning of §§ 147 (1) No. 2 and 3, 257 (1) No. 2 and 3 German Commercial Code or subject of taxation within the meaning of § 147 (1) No. 5 German Tax Code, the data will be deleted at the end of six years unless shorter retention periods are permitted under other tax laws. Data from accounting documents within the meaning of §§ 147 para. 1 No. 1, 4, 4a German Tax Code, 257 para. 1 No. 1 and 4 German Commercial Code are deleted at the end of ten years at the end of the year.

The aforementioned data is stored on the one hand on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR in order to be able to process contact enquiries and to prevent misuse of the contact enquiry and on the other hand on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR in the case of contract initiation or fulfilment.

An objection or deletion is not possible if there are legally standardized retention periods and the data must remain stored and processed for the execution and handling of the contract. In all other cases, the person concerned has the possibility of objecting to the storage at any time after contacting us; the data stored for the transaction will then be deleted.
