Your browser automatically transmits access data (so-called „server log files“) to our server each time you visit one of our websites. The server log files contain the following information:
- the time of your visit,
- the page from which you visit us (referrer URL),
- the subpages visited,
- the names of the requested files,
- your IP address,
- the data volume,
- the browser you are using and
We need the aforementioned information to ensure system security and to compile usage statistics. Both purposes are in our overriding legitimate interest (Art. 6 I 1 f EU-GDPR). The respective data record will be deleted immediately after the respective purpose ceases to apply, but no later than 90 days after its collection.
On our website we offer you to register for our newsletter. In the course of registration, we request your e-mail address in order to be able to send you the newsletter. If you enter this in the registration form and send it, we record, in addition to your e-mail address, the time of sending, the associated IP address and on which of our pages exactly you have registered.
To ensure that you want to subscribe to the newsletter yourself, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure to verify your e-mail address: After you have registered as a subscriber on our website, we will send you a confirmation e-mail. Only if you confirm that you actually wish to receive our newsletter by clicking on the link contained in this e-mail, will the address be actively added to the distribution list. We record the time of your confirmation. If you do not click the confirmation link, we will delete the data collected during registration after seven days.
The collection and processing of your e-mail address is based on your consent (Art. 6 I 1 a EU-GDPR). The legal basis for the proof of your consent (times, IP address, registration website) is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 I 1 f EU-GDPR). The data is processed solely for the purpose of delivering the subscribed newsletter. For the dispatch of our newsletter, we use external service providers that we have carefully selected and obligated in accordance with the requirements of data protection law by means of order processing contracts pursuant to Art. 28 EU-GDPR and whose activities we monitor. These service providers are based in Germany or in the EU.
You can revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter you have subscribed to. We process your data for sending the newsletter as long as you have not revoked your consent. In addition, we process your data for the purpose of proving that you have given your consent until the expiry of all periods of limitation and complaint periods, generally up to three years after revocation of your consent (§ 31 OWiG), unless there are longer-term statutory retention obligations.
3. Data security
In order to protect your personal data as best as possible when you visit our website, we use SSL encryption (https standard). This also applies to the transmission of data using the contact form. This type of encryption is a risk-appropriate and state-of-the-art technical and organizational security measure.
