When using this website, personal data may be processed. The term "personal data" under data protection law refers to all information that relates to a specific or identifiable person. The IP address can also be such a personal data. An IP address is assigned to every device connected to the Internet by the Internet provider so that it can send and receive data. When you use the website, we collect information that you provide yourself. In addition, during your visit to the website, we automatically collect certain information about your use of the website. We process personal data in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations, in particular the GDPR and the BDSG. Data processing by us only takes place on the basis of a legal permission. When using this website, we process personal data only with your consent (Section 25 (1) TTDSG or Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 Bay Letter a GDPR), for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or at your request for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 Bay Letter b GDPR), for the fulfillment of a legal obligation (Art. 6(1), first sentence, point (c) of the GDPR) or if the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, which require the protection of personal data, override (Art. 6(1), first sentence, point (f) of the GDPR).
Duration of storage
Unless otherwise stated in the following notes, we store the data only for as long as is necessary to achieve the processing purpose or to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations. Such statutory retention obligations may arise in particular from commercial or tax law regulations. From the end of the calendar year in which the data was collected, we will retain such personal data contained in our accounting records for ten years and retain personal data contained in commercial letters and contracts for six years. In addition, we will retain data in connection with consents requiring proof as well as with complaints and claims for the duration of the statutory limitation periods. We will delete data stored for advertising purposes if you object to processing for this purpose.
Categories of recipients of the data
We use order processors as part of the processing of your data. Processing operations carried out by such processors include, for example, hosting, maintenance and support of IT systems, customer and order management, accounting and billing or file and data carrier destruction. A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller. Processors do not use the data for their own purposes, but carry out data processing exclusively for the controller and are contractually obligated to ensure appropriate technical and organizational measures for data protection. In addition, we may transmit your personal data to bodies such as postal and delivery services, house bank, tax consultancy/auditing company or the financial administration. For the purpose of infection control, data may be transferred to the responsible public health department. Further recipients may result from the following information.
Data transfer to third countries
Our data processing operations may involve the transfer of certain personal data to third countries, i.e. countries where the GDPR is not applicable law. Such a transfer takes place in a permissible manner if the European Commission has determined that an adequate level of data protection is required in such a third country. If such an adequacy decision by the European Commission does not exist, a transfer of personal data to a third country will only take place if appropriate safeguards exist pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR or if one of the conditions of Art. 49 GDPR is met.
Unless otherwise stated below, we use the EU standard data protection clauses as appropriate safeguards for the transfer of personal data in third countries. You have the possibility to receive a copy of these EU standard data protection clauses or to inspect them. To do so, please contact us at the address given under Contact.
If you consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, the transfer will take place on the legal basis of Article 49 (1) a GDPR.
