2. Purposes and legal basis of data processing
2.1 Data processing for the provision of contractual services
We process personal data in order to process the contractual relationships and to be able to submit contractual offers tailored to your requirements. The collection of the data takes place in particular for the conclusion and/or for the performance of a contract.
For all forms, we only collect the personal data that is absolutely necessary for the processing of the contractual relationships or for your request for information. You can send us requests for contractual services via our website and our contact data stored there. Insofar as personal data is transmitted to us by you in this way or in any other way in the case of corresponding requests, we process your data for the purpose of responding to your request, the performance of the order/contract and for invoicing. For this purpose, we need your name, address data and e-mail address. Without this data, we cannot perform the contract. If you also provide us with your telephone/mobile number, we will use this information for the contract-related clarification of queries. If you provide further data, we will also use this data for the aforementioned purposes, but this data is not required for the conclusion of the contract.
In the case of suppliers/service providers, we process the provided personal data to order and claim services and to pay for the services provided. For this purpose, we require the name, address data and account data. Depending on the service/contract, we may also require additional data, which we will then explain on a case-by-case basis. If you provide further data, we will also use it for the aforementioned purposes, but this is not required for the conclusion of the contract.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s.1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
2.2 Data processing for communication with you
In addition to the contractual data, we process your communication data (names of contact persons, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address) in order to be able to contact you and communicate with you within the contractual relationship. Personal data that you provide to us by e-mail or via the contact form on this website will only be processed for correspondence with you or only for the purpose for which you provided us with the data.
If you enter data in the input mask provided for this purpose in the contact form, this data is transmitted to us and processed by us. For communication via the contact form on our website, we need at least your:
- E-mail address,
Once the message is sent, the following additional data is also stored:
- IP address and
- Date and time of sending.
Provided that you are interested in our services, the basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. Furthermore, we have an interest in processing and, if applicable, answering your enquiry and the processing of your data for this purpose is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data to protect the legitimate interests of the controller, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject outweigh these interests. In other cases the processing is based on consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR) if this has been obtained in this regard.

2.5 Google Fonts
On some of our websites, we use so-called web fonts provided by Google (Google Fonts) for the consistent display of fonts. In the interest of effective protection and conscious handling of your sensitive personal data, these services are only used via a local integration. The fonts are only retrieved from our server. In this regard, no connection to Google's servers is established. A transmission, processing or storage of your data by Google does not take place in this case.

The data processing then takes place on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. An informal communication to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

2.9 Online presence in other social networks
We have set up online presences in various social networks to communicate with you, interested parties and customers and to inform them about our services and current offers. In addition to our interaction with you, the social networks process data from visitors to their websites for the purpose of market research and advertising, i.e. that from the respective visit or usage behaviour and the preferences and interests of a visitor derived from this, a user profile may be created by the respective operator of the social network.
Such user profiles can be used, among other things, to display advertisements within the respective social network and possibly on other websites, which are individually adapted to the respective user profile. Cookies (see above) may be stored on the visitors' devices, with the help of which data on usage behaviour can be collected. The collection of this data can, especially in the case of logged-in members of the respective social network, also be realized across several browsers and/or end devices used by a user. Even if a visitor does not have a profile with the respective social network, it cannot be ruled out that personal data on this visitor will be stored when visiting the respective website.
Requests for information regarding the data stored in social networks via our online presence or the use of other relevant rights of data subjects can be addressed to the provider of the respective service. Only the providers of the social networks have access to the respective data stored there and can provide the corresponding information, etc. With regard to the purpose and scope of data processing by the various social networks, we refer additionally to their respective data protection notices and the respective contact options:
Google Ireland Limited ("Google")
Gordon House, Barrow Street
The processing of data in the context of our online presence in social networks is done, insofar as we are responsible under data protection law, on the basis of our legitimate interest in effective information and direct communication with interested parties. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our interest is to provide content and communicate with users of the respective social networks and to improve the reach and effectiveness of our posts.
We may use plugins from the website YouTube. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
As soon as you start a YouTube video within our service, a connection to YouTube's servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile.
Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device after starting a video. With help of these cookies, YouTube can obtain information about users of our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts.
Important in context of data processing in the USA.: According to the European Court of Justice, the data protection standard in the USA is inadequate and there is a risk that personal data will be processed by USA authorities, for control and monitoring purposes, and possibly without any means of redress.
If cookies are set by YouTube, the processing of personal data is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
If you have consented to our use of YouTube and the associated data processing, the data processing and, if applicable, the storage of YouTube cookies is based on this consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Data subjects may revoke their consent at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the data processing already carried out on the basis of the consent remains unaffected by the revocation.
2.11 Data processing for job applications
Via our websites and our contact data provided there, applications for jobs in our company can be sent to us. Insofar as personal data is transmitted to us in this way or in any other way when applications are submitted, we process this data for the purpose of reviewing, processing and responding to the application and, if necessary, for preparing the employment relationship.
The basis for data processing is either Art. 88 para. 1 GDPR, § 26 para. 1 BDSG which permits the processing of data for the decision on the employment, for the establishment as well as for the performance of employment relationships or - if the data subject has given consent - Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. An informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The lawfulness of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
2.12 Data processing to protect legitimate interests
We may also process your data if it is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of us or of third parties. This may be the case in particular to ensure IT security and IT operation, in particular also for of support enquiries, to be able to understand and prove facts in the event of legal disputes and to statistically evaluate the use of our website. The basis for the data processing is then Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
2.13 Other data processing based on your consent
It may also happen that we ask for your consent to process personal data. Any granting of consent and the relevant data processing is voluntary and you will not suffer any disadvantages if you do not consent.
The data processing is then carried out on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. An informal notification to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

- the page from which the page was requested (so-called referrer URL)
- the name and URL of the requested page
- the date and time of the request
- the description of the type, language and version of the web browser used
- the shortened IP address of the requesting computer
- the amount of data transferred
- the operating system used
- the message whether the call was successful (access status/http status code)
- the GMT time zone difference
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.
The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data to safeguard the legitimate interests of the data controller, provided that the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We have an interest in the prosecution, prevention and punishment of illegal use of our offer.
2.15 Data processing for the fulfilment of legal obligations
In addition, we process your data to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. regulatory requirements, commercial and tax storage and proof obligations).
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, which permits processing to fulfil a legal obligation.
3. Recipients of the personal data
Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transferred to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of performing the contractual relationship, or if prior consent has been given, or if there is any other legal basis for the transfer.
Your data will be forwarded to the relevant department and the relevant employees within our company in order to answer your enquiries, for communication purposes or to carry out the order or to fulfil contractual obligations.
Insofar as it is necessary for the purpose of performing the contract, data is passed on to third party companies, possibly in a foreign country, which have been contracted to support the performance of the contract. The basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures. If we ask for a consent for this transfer, Art. 6 para 1 lit a GDPR is the legal basis. You can revoke a given consent at any time with effect for the future.
Insofar as we use third party services for the implementation and handling of processing operations, the provisions and terms of the General Data Protection Regulation are complied with. Service providers that support us in providing our services to you are hosting providers, email service providers, IT service providers, marketing service providers, repair service providers, distribution partners and service providers for file shredding.
In addition, data may be passed on to third parties commissioned to provide consulting services, such as consulting firms or law firms, tax consultants, auditors or other similar consulting service providers. These are usually not acting as order processors, but they are subject to statutory or contractually agreed confidentiality obligations.
4. Duration of data storage
In principle, we delete your data as soon as it is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, unless temporary storage is still necessary. We store your data on the basis of legal proof and storage obligations, which result among other things from the German Commercial Code and the German Tax Code, according to which the storage periods are up to ten full years. In addition, we keep your data for the period during which claims can be asserted against our company (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).
5. Data Security
Your personal data will be transmitted securely by us through encryption. We use the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer). You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. Furthermore, we secure our websites and other systems by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons.
6. Rights of the data subject
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, data subjects have the right at any time to free information about their personal data stored by us, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction or deletion of this data.
For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time using the contact details given in section 1.
You may also have a right to restrict the processing of your data and a right to receive the data you have provided in a structured, common and machine-readable format.
If you have given us consent to process personal data for specific purposes, you may withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to this processing on grounds relating to your particular situation. If we cannot substantiate compelling legitimate reasons for further processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if we process the data in question from you for the purpose of direct marketing, we will then no longer process your data.
In addition, data subjects have the possibility of contacting a data protection supervisory authority (right of complaint).
