Collection and Storage of Personal Data and Type and Purpose of Use
You can use our Internet offers without providing any personal information. When you visit our website, only so-called log files are stored. These include the name of the requested file, the page from which the file was requested, the date and time of the request, the type and version of the requesting web browser and the operating system and host name of the requesting computer.
These data do not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person and are only used internally to administer our websites, namely to ensure a smooth connection setup and system security as well as for the comfortable use and optimization of our pages.
We collect and store personal data if you provide it to us voluntarily when contacting us, e.g. via our contact form. The data collected depends on the one hand on your request, i.e. the content of your message, and on the other hand from the contact data requested in the form (company, name, address, e-mail address, telephone number).
We use the data provided by you only in the context of processing your inquiries for the purposes of contract execution, office administration, controlling, invoicing and customer service.
Your data may also be processed by us for marketing purposes relating to our own range of services and, in cases where this appears reasonable, also information material on linked products and services of third parties, based on our legitimate interest in business initiation and intensification of the business relationship with you by the sending of e-mails (with your consent) and letter mail.
In addition, we may continue to use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time to improve usability. When you visit our website again, it will automatically recognize that you have already been there and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter this data again.
You can set your browser so that no cookies are stored on your end device or a message appears before a new cookie is created. However, the deactivation of cookies may prevent you from using all the functions of our website.
The data processed by cookies is required for the above-mentioned purposes in order to safeguard our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Data Retention Period
We will only store your personal data for as long as we need it to process the above-mentioned collection purposes (if necessary until the conclusion of legal disputes), for as long as your consent for the storage is available and until expiry of the statutory retention period (e.g. according to German Commercial Code (HGB) and German Regulation of Taxation (AO)).
If you wish to have your customer data deleted prematurely, you are welcome to contact us at any time. Please note, however, that there are storage obligations for certain data (e.g. according to HGB and AO), at least for services that are subject to a charge. In these cases, the data are not deleted but blocked. Blocking means that the personal data is marked to restrict further dissemination or use.

Your data may be disclosed to third parties, in particular banks, tax consultants, collection agencies, credit agencies, legal representatives, courts, administrative authorities and our suppliers.

We also use suitable technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
