Purpose of data processing

Storage period
The aforementioned data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, the data will be deleted or anonymized no later than seven days after collection.

Opposition and removal options
The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility for the user to object.

The data is used to process the conversation.

Legal basis for processing
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f  DSVGO. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. If the contact results in a contract, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit b DSVGO .

However, if a contract is concluded, the data required by commercial and tax law will be kept by us for the legally determined periods, i.e. regularly ten years (cf. § 257 HGB, § 147 AO).

Opposition and removal options

If you follow an external link on our site and thus leave our site, it may be that the destination address processes personal data and sets cookies. If you do not want this, please do not follow the external links. Please note their privacy policy.

V. Information about your rights in connection with data processing

Insofar as we process personal data about you, you, as the so-called data subject, have certain rights that you can assert against us, the so-called controller.
We would like to inform you about these rights below, but have omitted to reproduce all details for reasons of clarity. If you want to exercise any of the rights listed below, it is advisable to familiarize yourself with the exact wording of the respective provision.

Objection according to Art. 21 DSGVO
If we base the processing of your personal data on the legal basis of legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f  DSGVO), you have the right to object on a case-by-case basis.
In this case, the admissibility of the (further) data processing results from an overall weighing of the conflicting legitimate interests. Therefore, when you exercise such an objection, we ask you to provide plausible reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your objection, we will either stop or restrict data processing or show you our reasons worthy of protection, on the basis of which we will continue processing (Art. 21 DSVGO).

  • to request information about your personal data processed by us in accordance with Art. 15 DSVGO.
