III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of personal data processing

On principle, we only process personal data relating to our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. Regular processing of personal data relating to our users only occurs after consent is obtained from the user. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and processing of data is permitted by law. 

 

2. Legal basis for processing of personal data

WITH CONSENT 

In so far as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis  

FOR FULFILMENT OF A CONTRACT 

Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis in the case of processing of personal data required for performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing procedures which are necessary to implement pre-contractual measures.  

FOR FULFILMENT OF A LEGAL OBLIGATION 

Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis in so far as processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject.  

FOR PROTECTION OF VITAL INTERESTS 

Article 6 (1) lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis in the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data.  

FOR PROTECTION OF LEGITIMATE INTERESTS 

Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing in so far as processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest.

3. Data deletion and storage duration

Personal data of the data subject is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws or other provisions which govern the data controller. Data is also blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless further storage of the data is required for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

IV. Provision of website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

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 in this respect: 

(1) Information on the browser type and version used

(2) The user's operating system

(3) The user's internet service provider

(4) The user's IP address

(5) Date and time of accessing

(6) Websites from which the user's system accesses our website

(7) Websites accessed by the user's system via our website

Data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for data processing

Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for temporary storage of data and log files.

3. Purpose of data processing

Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. The user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session for this purpose.

Storage in log files occurs to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data enables us to optimise the website and ensure the security of our information technology systems. Evaluation of data for marketing purposes does not occur in this context.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in the processing of data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

4. Storage duration

Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data recorded for provision of the website, this is what occurs when the respective session is terminated.

If data is stored in log files, it is deleted after 28 days at the latest. Further storage above and beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of users are deleted or distorted so that assignment of the accessing client is no longer possible.      

5. Objection and disposal option

The collection of data for provision of the website and storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for operation of the website. Consequently, no possibility of objection exists on the part of the user.

V. Use of cookies  

1. Description and scope of data processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in or by the internet browser on the user's computer system. A cookie may be stored on the user's operating system if a user accesses a website. This cookie contains a characteristic string that enables unique identification of the browser when the website is accessed again. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the accessing browser be also identifiable after a page change.
The following data is stored and transmitted in cookies:

(1) Language settings

(2) Session cookie for page status

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

We need cookies for the following applications:

(1) Holding the session

(2) Accepting language settings

User data collected by technically necessary cookies is not used to create user profiles. For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in the processing of personal data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.      

4. Duration of storage, objection and disposal options

Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted from this to our website. Consequently, you as the user also have full control over the use of cookies.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for processing of data is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If the aim of the enquiry is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR.      

3. Purpose of data processing

Processing of personal data from the input mask only assists us in processing the contact. In the event of contact by email, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing of data.Other personal data processed during the transmission process serves to prevent abuse of the contact form and ensure the security of our information technology systems.

In the event of an enquiry due to the initiation of a legal transaction, we may pass on your data to one of our registered dealers, to our registered field service for enquiries in Germany and to the nearest registered dealer in your country for international enquiries. If there is no registered dealer from our network in your country, we will select a dealer suitable for your needs. You can find the list of registered dealers on the website under “Contact”.

4. Storage duration

Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For personal data from the input mask of the contact form and that which was sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user is ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been conclusively clarified.

You have the right to request information as to whether personal data relating to you is transmitted to a third country or an international organisation. You may demand to be informed about the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR relating to transmission in this context.

2. Right to correction

You have a right with regard to the data controller to correction and/or completion if the personal data processed relating to you is incorrect or incomplete. The data controller must realise the correction without delay.

3. Right to limitation of processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that processing of personal data relating to you be restricted if:  

(1) you dispute the accuracy of personal data relating to you for a period of time that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2) processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and, instead, request that use of the personal data be restricted;

If processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, this data may (apart from its storage) only be processed with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on the grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a member State.

If the processing restriction has been limited according to the above conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to deletion

(1) Obligation to delete

You may request that the data controller delete personal data relating to you without delay, and the data controller is then obliged to delete this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:  

(a) Personal data relating to you is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

(b) You revoke your consent on which processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR, and no other legal basis for processing exists.

The right to cancellation does not exist in so far as processing is necessary  

(a) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;

(c) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Art. 9 (2) lit. h and i and Art. 9 (3) GDPR;

(d) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR, in so far as the right referred to under a) is likely to make attainment of the objectives of such processing impossible or seriously impair it, or

(e) for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have exercised the right to have the data controller correct, delete or limit processing, the data controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom personal data relating to you has been disclosed of this correction or deletion of data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right with regard to the data controller to be informed of these recipients.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

(1) processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR or a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and

(2) processing is realised with the aid of automated methods.  

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that personal data relating to you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data required for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

7. Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time for reasons emanating from your particular situation to processing of personal data relating to you that arises under Art. 6 (1) lit. e or f GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller no longer processes personal data relating to you, unless the data controller can prove that compelling reasons relating to protection exist for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or that processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If personal data relating to you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data relating to you for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling if it is associated with such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, personal data relating to you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
Notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you have the possibility to exercise your right of objection with regard to use of information society services through automated procedures employing technical specifications.

8. Right to revoke data protection declaration of consent

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of consent does not affect the legality of processing realised on the basis of consent until revocation.

9. Automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling

No profiling or automated decision-making occurs.

10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, particularly in the member state where you reside, work or suspect an infringement if you believe that processing of personal data relating to you represents a breach of the GDPR.
The supervisory authority where the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
