We welcome you to our website. Protecting your data is very important to us. We have produced this document to let you know how we process your personal data.
Categories of data; data sources
Generally, we process personal data that you share with us in the context of an enquiry, a precontractual legal relationship or a contractual relationship. In individual cases and to the extent necessary for contact fulfilment, we also process personal data that has been permissibly obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. commercial register, lists of debtors, internet) or has been permissibly transmitted to us by third parties (e.g. credit agencies).
This may include personal details (name, date of birth, legally authorised representative), address details (postal address, email address, contact persons), financial details (name of account holder, IBAN, BIC), contract details (contract duration, services purchased, cancellations), communication data (postal and email correspondence), advertising data (advertising communications) and other similar categories of personal data.
General processing of visitor data
It is generally possible to use our website without providing personal data.
However, we would like to point out that even in this case access data is collected and stored in the server log files. This data includes, in particular, the following types of data::
- Browser type/your browser version
- Operating system
- The website you visit us from
- Date and time of your visit
- Qour IP address
We generally use this information in anonymised form to defend against attacks (processing of personal data for the purposes of legitimate interests pursuant to article 6 (1) letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)). Usually the data cannot be traced back to your person by us, and it is not merged with other data.
However, we the reserve the right subsequently to analyse the data if there are specific indications of unlawful use.
If you contact us by email, we will process the personal data you provide in order to respond to your request. We will delete the data once we have finished processing your request unless there is a contractual or legal obligation to retain the data.
Processing personal data for the purposes of legitimate systems (article 6 (1) letter f GDPR)
We process personal data for the purposes of legitimate interests insofar as this is necessary to protect our interests or the interests of third parties.
Examples of such purposes are:
- Ensuring IT security and the integrity of our systems
- Prevent or investigate criminal offences
- Establishment or defence of legal claims
- Record your consent to the use of particular cookies or plugins
- Using the website as an administrator (back-end login)
Processing personal data for the performance of a contract (article 6 (1) letter b GDPR)
Where a contract is concluded with us, we use personal data to the extent necessary for the performance of the contract or to take steps prior to entering into a contract. The purposes for which data is processed depend on the specific contents of the contract, which you can find in the contract documents..
Processing personal data once consent has been given (article 6 (1) letter a GDPR)
We will obtain your consent in the individual case for specific explicitly designated purposes (e.g. enquiry via a contact form, opening a customer account, subscribing to a newsletter, use of advertising and analytics cookies or social media plugins).
Data is processed only if you have given us your consent. It may be impossible to process your request without your consent, and therefore the former has to be made conditional on the latter. Data is processed solely for the expressly stated purpose(s).
You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Various cookies may be used during your visit to our website. Cookies are text files that are placed on your computer to facilitate a smooth browsing experience on our website, among other things.
Some cookies are necessary to ensure the functionality or IT security of our website. These functional cookies are used based on a legitimate interest in enabling the use of our website including its functionality, pursuant to article 6 (1) letter f GDPR.
We may use other – non-essential – cookies based on article 6 (1) letter a GDPR, i.e. if you consent to their use. Cookies can be used for the following purposes:
- Enable the use of particular functions
- (Pseudonymised) analysis of usage behaviour to optimise our website
- Enhance the attractiveness and usability of our website
- Improve and tailor the products and services we offer
Non-essential cookies are used as part of usage profiles. A pseudonym is assigned to you, and the usage data is stored under this pseudonym. Your IP address is only ever stored in truncated form, so it is no longer possible to link the usage profile to you personally.
Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your computer when you close your browser (session cookies). Other types of cookies may remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your computer the next time you visit our site, via the stored usage profile (persistent cookies).
You can give your consent by confirming our cookie banner when you access our website. You can withdraw consent at any time with effect for the future.
We use a plugin for the Google Maps web service on our website. Google Maps is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).
We require your consent to the collection of data when using plugins. If you do not consent to the use of data when you visit our website for the first time, the Google Maps plugin will not be activated. As a result, no data will be transmitted even if you accidentally interact with a Google Maps plugin.
If you consent to the processing of your data by the Google Maps plugin via the opt-in process, the lawfulness of processing your data is based on consent pursuant to article 6 (1) letter a GDPR, with the result that we use your data within the scope of the consent you have given for purposes of linking to Google Maps.
In this case, information about the use of this website and your IP address will be transferred to a Google Server in the United States and also stored on that server. Google LLC is a Privacy Shield certified company, which means that data is transferred to Google not only with your consent but also on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission concerning the exchange of data between the EU and the United States. In the context of using Google Maps, an arrangement regarding joint controllers has been agreed between us and Google LLC for the purposes of article 26 GDPR.
When you use Google Maps on our website, information about the use of this website and your IP address is transferred to a Google server in the United States and is stored on that server. We do not know the exact content of the transferred data, or how it is used by Google. In this context, Google states that it does not link this data with information from other Google services or collect personal data, unless you have configured the web and app activity settings in the settings of a Google account to allow Google to combine such data. Under certain circumstances, Google may also pass your data on to third parties after informing you.
By granting consent on your first visit, you declare your consent to the described collection and processing of information by Google, Inc. For more details about the data protection provisions and terms and conditions of use for Google Maps, go to:
Our website uses plugins for the YouTube social network. YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
In this case, your browser only establishes a direct connection with YouTube’s servers when you click the relevant button (“Extended Privacy Mode”). The plugin content is then transferred from YouTube to your browser and integrated into the website. When you activate the plugin, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. Content is then transferred from YouTube to your browser and included on the page. As a result, YouTube knows that you are on the corresponding page of our website. This happens even if you do not have a YouTube profile or are not logged in. Personal data (including your IP address) is then automatically forwarded to and stored on a YouTube server located in the United States.
We require your consent to the collection of data when using the YouTube plugin.
If you consent to the processing of your data by the YouTube plugin via the opt-in process, the lawfulness of processing your data is based on consent pursuant to article 6 (1) letter a GDPR, with the result that we use your data within the scope of the consent you have given for the purposes of linking to YouTube.
YouTube directly links this personal data to you personally only if you are logged in to YouTube. A corresponding interaction also takes place when you actively press the corresponding button. The result is publication on your YouTube account and appearance in your contacts. For more details on how YouTube handles your personal data, visit: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
As a Google LLC application, YouTube is subject to the Privacy Shield agreement, which means that data is transferred to Google in the United States not only with your consent but also on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission concerning the exchange of data between the EU and the United States.
Social media links / external links
Our website may contain links to social media sites and websites of our subsidiaries. Clicking these links will take you directly to these sites. We do not process personal data when you do this. Please note the data privacy notices on the respective destination sites.
Use of Google Fonts
We use Google Fonts to display external fonts in offline mode (the fonts are “Hind” and “Oswald”). This service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). No data is passed on to Google servers. The processing is necessary so that our website displays properly, and it is therefore in our and your interests. The legal basis for processing is therefore article 6 (1) letter f GDPR, in relation to the company’s external image via a fully functional website.
Passing on data
Data will only be passed on in the cases provided for by law, for example if there is a legal obligation to disclose information to law enforcement agencies. In the case of data passed on as a result of using cookies or plugins, see the relevant section for more information.
Duration of data storage
We will delete your data immediately as soon as the data is no longer needed for the fulfilment of contractual and legal obligations, or when the purpose for which the data was processed has been achieved and the data is no longer needed for this purpose.
Personal data is stored for at least as long as required for the fulfilment of contractual obligations and to exercise contractual rights. This period may extend beyond the actual contract period, as the data may still be relevant in the context of limitation periods even after the contract ends. Furthermore, data cannot be deleted until any retention periods under tax and commercial law have expired. The criteria for the duration of storing cookies can be found in the corresponding section.
Rights of the data subject
As the data subject (the person whose personal data is processed), you have the following rights:
- You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you is being processed. If this is the case, you have a right of access to the personal data and to the information specified in article 15 GDPR.
- You have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and where applicable to have incomplete personal data completed (article 16 GDPR).
- You have the right obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay, provided one of the reasons specified in article 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed (right to erasure).
- You have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the conditions listed in article 18 GDPR applies, e.g. if you have objected to processing, pending the verification by the controller.
- You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you. Then the controller will no longer process the personal data unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (article 21 GDPR).
With regard to the exercise of your rights, you can contact us at any time via the contact methods advertised on our website.
Right to lodge a complaint
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR (article 77 GDPR). In the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, the competent supervisory authority is the Rhineland-Palatinate Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (Landesdatenschutzbeauftragter für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit).
