(2) When you use our website, cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
a) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:
– Transient cookies (for this purpose b)
– Persistent cookies (c).
b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
(3) Contact form and e-mail contact. A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored.
Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address(es) provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of using the contact form or sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f EU-DSGVO.
If the use of the contact form or the transmission of an e-mail serves the fulfillment of a contract to which the user is a party or the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.
The processing of personal data from the input mask or, in the case of contact by e-mail, serves us solely to process the contact.
In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-DSGVO, unless it is already the fulfillment of a contract to which the user is a party or the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. If there are legal retention periods for the communication content, e.g. from commercial and/or tax law requirements, the corresponding data will be deleted after these periods have expired.
Provided that there are no legal retention obligations, the user can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.
(4) Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The Google fonts used on the website are stored locally on our own server. A connection to a third-party provider is not established. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.
