General information about data processing
The protection of your personal data is important to us. In the following we would therefore like to inform you in detail which data we collect from you, on the one hand in the context of ongoing business relations and, on the other hand, when you visit our website and use our offers there and how these are processed or used by us thereafter and which rights you are entitled to in this respect.
Your personal data, such as your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number, will only be processed by us on the basis of the statutory data protection law, i.e. the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Our data protection declaration uses the terms of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which we would like to explain briefly for your convenience. These and other definitions can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.
a) personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;
b) ‘processing’ means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction;
c) ‘restriction of processing’ means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future;
d) ‘pseudonymisation’ means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person;
e) ‘controller’ means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law;
f) ‘processor’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller;
g) ‘recipient’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not.

g) ‘third party’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data;
h) ‘consent’ of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her;
II. Type of personal data concerned / purposes of processing
The personal data to be processed by us include salutation, surname, first name, a valid e-mail address, address and telephone numbers, employer, job title, position, bank details, signature, access data, user IDs - i.e. all personal information that we require in order to provide our contractual services for you. This data is collected in order to identify you as our customer, to process your customer order appropriately, to correspond with you, to issue invoices, to process any existing claims and to assert any claims against you. Failure to provide personal data (with the exception of telephone numbers) will render the order infeasible. Failure to provide a telephone number limits our ability to communicate with you.
The data will be processed upon your request and is required for the purposes mentioned in Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR for the appropriate processing of your request or order and for the mutual fulfilment of obligations arising from the contract.
We do not carry out automated decision making (especially profiling).
We may share the information with our partners if we use their services to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, such as suppliers, data hosts, software providers, external accountants/tax consultants and the like. The data passed on may be used by the third parties exclusively for the purposes mentioned.
The personal data processed by us within the scope of the contractual relationship will be stored until the proper fulfilment of the contract, including the statutory periods for warranty of defects, and subsequently erased, unless we are obliged to store it for a longer period due to tax and commercial law or other statutory storage and documentation obligations (e.g. under the HGB [Commercial Code], StGB [Criminal Code] or AO [Fiscal Code]) or you have consented to further storage in accordance with Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.
