Contact form and contact by e-mail
If you send us enquiries via contact form or e-mail, your details from the enquiry form or your e-mail including the first name and surname you entered there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. The indication of an e-mail address is required for contact purposes, the indication of your name and your telephone number is voluntary. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and, if applicable, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if your request is aimed at the conclusion of a contract.

In the case of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time.
In some cases, the cookies serve to simplify website processes by saving settings (e.g. the provision of already selected options). Insofar as personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO either for the execution of the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to safeguard our legitimate interests to provide the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design when visiting the site.

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties, except

● if you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a of the DSGVO
● the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection, which is achieved by not disclosing your data,

In addition, we use external service providers for our services, which we have carefully selected and commissioned in writing.

These are service providers for webhosting, sending e-mails and maintenance and servicing of our IT systems etc. The service providers will not pass on this data to third parties.
In accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO and taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the varying probability of occurrence and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.

Duration of storage of personal data
The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the relevant legal retention periods (e.g. from commercial law and tax law). After expiry of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is required for the performance of a contract or the initiation of a contract, or if we have a legitimate interest in the further storage of the data, the data will be deleted if it is no longer required for these purposes or if you exercise your right of revocation or objection.
