Purpose and basis of data processing

Art. 6 I a) GDPR: Serves as the basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.  


If processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, this is based on Art. I b) GDPR. This is necessary, for example, for processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service/service in return.
The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries from the person concerned about our products or services.


If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I c) GDPR.  


Processing is necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person; this would be e.g. This is the case, for example, in the event of a visitor being injured in our company (passing on name, age, health insurance company, ... to a doctor or other third party). This is based on Art. 6 I d) GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I f) GDPR. Processing operations are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail.


Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

Duration of storage of personal data

The storage takes place on the basis of the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

Contractual or statutory provisions for the provision of personal data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). 

If a person concludes a contract with us, they are also obliged to provide us with personal data, which we subsequently process.

Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. 

Our employee clarifies to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.


Automated Decision Making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.



Data protection regulations for the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The person responsible for processing uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person concerned must use a browser add-on under the link  download and install. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is evaluated by Google as a contradiction. If the information technology system of the person concerned is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the person concerned must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person who is attributable to their sphere of influence, there is the possibility of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable data protection regulations of Google can be found at  and under  be retrieved. Google Analytics is available at this link  explained in more detail.
