(2) When you use our website, cookies are saved on your computer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and which are saved in your browser. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses.
a) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:
– Transient cookies (see b)
– Persistent cookies (see c).
b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include session cookies in particular. These save a session ID which is used to assign various requests from your browser to the shared session. It is used to recognise your computer when you return to our website. The session cookies are automatically deleted when you log out or close the browser.
c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified time period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies at any time in the security settings for your browser.
d) You can set your browser settings as you wish and, for example, accept third-party cookies or reject all cookies. Bear in mind that you may not be able to make full use of all the functions on this website if you do this.
e) The flash cookies used are not recorded by your browser but by your Flash plug-in. If you do not wish to process Flash cookies, you must install an appropriate add-on, e.g. “Better Privacy” for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash Killer Cookie for Google Chrome.
f) We will continue to use HTML5 storage objects which are saved on your device. These objects save the required data regardless of the browser you are using and have no automatic expiry date. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storage objects by selecting privacy mode in your browser. We also recommend manually deleting your cookies and your browser history.
(3) Contact form and e-mail contact. There is a contact form on our website which can be used to contact us electronically. If a user chooses this option, the data entered in the input screen is transmitted to us and stored. Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address(es) provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted in the e-mail will be saved.
The legal basis for processing the data which is transmitted by using the contact form and/or when sending an e-mail is Article 6(1) (f) GDPR.
If the contact form is used or an e-mail is sent for the purpose of fulfilling a contract whereby the contractual party is the user, or for the purpose of carrying out pre-contractual measures, the legal basis for the processing of data is Article 6(1) (b) GDPR.
We will only process personal data from the input screen and/or in the event that contact is made via e-mail in order to establish this contact.
For this purpose, we also have a legitimate interest in processing personal data in accordance with Article 6(1) (f) EU GDPR insofar as the intention is not already to fulfil a contract whereby the contracting party is the user or to carry out pre-contractual measures.
This data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of its collection. For personal data taken from the input screen of the contact form and the data transmitted via e-mail, this is the case if the relevant conversation with the user is terminated. The conversation is terminated if it can be derived from the circumstances that the facts concerned are finally clarified. Where legal retention periods apply to the content of the communication, e.g. derived from specifications relating to legal commercial and/or tax specifications, the corresponding data will be erased at the end of these periods.
Unless other legal retention obligations apply, the user can refuse the storage of its personal data at any time. In such cases, the conversation cannot be continued.
In this case, all personal data which has been saved as part of establishing contact will be erased.
