Our website can be visited without registration. Data such as the pages visited or the name of the retrieved file, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes, without directly relating this data to you. Insofar as there is an option to enter personal data on our website (for instance, in our contact form), this data is entered on a voluntary basis. The required mandatory information is clearly marked and required for the respective service and its personalization.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing their personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data necessary for the performance of a contract on which the data subject is a party, Art. 6, Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out precontractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that applies to our company, Art. 6, Para. 1 lit. c of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storage expires. It may be stored for longer than this period if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected:
The IP addresses of requesting computers are also logged. Further personal data is only collected if the website user and/or customer voluntarily provides it, such as through an inquiry or registration or to conclude a contract or through their browser settings. The data is also stored in our system’s log files. This data is not stored together with other personal data pertaining to the user.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. To do this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimize the website and ensure the security of our IT systems. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. In the case of data collection for the provision of the website, this happens when the respective session has ended or, in the case of data storage in log files, after a maximum of seven days. Longer storage periods are possible. In this case, the user’s IP addresses will be deleted or encrypted to prevent them from being assigned to the respective user.
The collection of data for website provision and the storage of data in log files is necessary for website operation. The user does not have any right of opposition.
A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for electronic contact. If the user uses this facility, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and saved. This data is:
When the message is sent, the following data is also stored:
The processing of the personal data from the input mask is used only to process the contact. In the case of contact via e-mail, this also constitutes the required legitimate interest in the data processing. Other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The legal basis for the processing of data with the consent of the user is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for processing Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR is still valid.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. If other business transactions arise from the contact, (contract, pre-contractual measures), the data required for the execution of the contract will continue to be stored. The duration of storage then results from the contractual or legal requirements (e.g. legal retention period). Such contract data is therefore kept by us for ten years.
The user has the right to revoke their consent to the processing of their personal data at any time. Revocation should be e-mailed in writing to the above mentioned E-Mail adresses. If the user contacts us by e-mail, they may object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. The same applies to contact made by telephone. In this case, all personal data stored in relation to the contact will be deleted.
On our website, clients have the opportunity to register for events offered, such as specialist conferences and seminars. When registering for the event, the following data is transmitted to us from the input mask (mandatory fields are clearly marked):
(1) First name and last name
(5) Postal code, city, country
(6) E-mail address
(7) Phone number
The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely for the processing and invoicing of the registration for participation in the event. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the submission process serve to prevent misuse of the registration and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted while sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO still valid.
If the registration results in further business processes (contract, pre-contractual measures), the data required for the execution of the contract will continue to be stored. The duration of storage then results from the contractual or legal requirements (e.g., legal retention period). Such contractual data is therefore regularly stored by us for ten years. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The revocation must be made in writing by e-mail to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. The same applies to contact by telephone. All personal data stored during registration will be deleted in this case.

Our website uses Google AdWords, a service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). This application is an online advertising program designed to place ads on the Google advertising network (e.g. in search results, videos, on websites, etc.) in order to display them to users who are believed to have an interest in them. This enables ads to be more targeted and only show users ads that potentially match their interests.
For this purpose, an individual cookie is generated on the device of the user, which records which websites the user visited, what content they are interested in and what offers they clicked, in addition to technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer.
Furthermore, we receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information obtained through the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only receive information on the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.
We currently use the following social media plug-ins and tools:
In principle, no personal data is passed on to the providers of the plug-ins or tools.
Our website uses plugins from YouTube for the integration and presentation of video content. The provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with integrated YouTube plugin, a connection is made to YouTube’s servers. YouTube will therefore receive information on which websites you have accessed. YouTube may associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile if you are logged into your YouTube account. You have the option to prevent this by logging out beforehand. The use of YouTube is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offer. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6, Para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.
We offer you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via these functions. Only through activation will the provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website pertaining to our online service. The legal basis for the use of plug-ins is Art. 6 Para. 1 p. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.
We have no control over the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, processing purposes, retention periods and deletions. As data collection is usually done through cookies, it is recommended that you check your browser settings regularly (however, this may limit the use of websites and the services offered). You can delete saved cookies at any time.
We process data in the context of administrative tasks and the organization of our business, financial accounting and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In regards to this, we process the same data that we process as part of fulfilling our contractual services. The bases for processing are Art. 6 Para. 1 lit c. of the GDPR and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit f of the GDPR. The processing affects customers, interested parties, business partners and website visitors. The purpose and our interest in processing lies in administration, financial accounting, office organization and data archiving – in other words tasks that serve to maintain our business, perform our duties and provide our services. The information specified for these processing tasks also applies to the deletion of data with regard to contractual services and contractual communication.
In relation to this, we disclose or transmit data to the fiscal authorities, consultants such as tax accountants or auditors and other billing centers and payment service providers.
Based on our business interests, we also store information about suppliers, promoters and other business partners, e.g. for later contact. This data, the majority of which is company-related, is generally stored permanently.
