However, if an affected person wishes to use special services through our website, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the data subject.
As controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for users of this website
personal data. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security holes, so that absolute protection can not be guaranteed.
For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

Collection of general data and information
Our website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-web pages, which can be accessed via (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address, (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, we draw no conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the content of our website and to advertise it, (3) to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the
necessary information for prosecution in case of a cyberattack.

The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.
Using script libraries (Google Webfonts)
To render our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website. For example, Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.

Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GVO provides us with a legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. Is the processing personal data required to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If we are 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 lit. c DS-GVO.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured locally and then his name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party.
Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS GVO. This legal basis is based on processing operations that are not covered by any of the above mentioned legal bases if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest on our part or of a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly permitted because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, DS-GVO).
Qualified interests in the processing being pursued by the controller or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business.
Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is required, for example, to provide us with personal data when we conclude a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean
that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. The data subject must contact us prior to the provision of personal data by the person concerned. We will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.
Existence of automated decision-making
We refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
