2 General purposes of the processing
We use personal data for the purposes of operating the Website, processing your enquiries in a business context, and improving our online offering.
3 Which data we use and why
The hosting services we avail of are used to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for the purpose of operating the Website.
In doing so, we or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, metadata and communication data of customers, potential customers and visitors to this Website on the basis of our legitimate interests in the efficient and secure provision of this Website according to Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 f) GDPR in conjunction with Art. 28 GDPR.
3.2 Access data
We collect information about you when you use this Website. We automatically collect information about your usage behaviour and your interaction with us and record data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about every instance of access to our Website (so-called server log files). The access data includes:
- Name and URL of the file(s) you retrieve/access
- Date and time of the access
- Data volume transferred
- Message about successful retrieval (HTTP response code)
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)
- The websites that are accessed by the user's system via our Website
- The user's internet service provider
- The IP address and requesting provider
We use this log data without allocation to your person or other profiling for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, security and optimisation of our website, but also for anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the extent and type of use of our website and services, as well as for billing purposes in order to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. This information enables us to provide personalised and location-based content, to analyse traffic, to detect and correct errors, and to improve our services.
We also have a legitimate interest in this pursuant to Art 6. para. 1 clause 1 f) GDPR.
We reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if, based on concrete indications or evidence, there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use. We also store IP addresses if we have reason to suspect that a criminal offence has been committed in connection with the use of our Website.
We use so-called session cookies to optimise our Website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the server in question when you visit a website, and which is temporarily stored on your hard drive. This session cookie file stores a session ID, which makes it possible to track the various requests made by your browser during the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to our Website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They serve, e.g., to prevent the cookie banner from being displayed repeatedly.
To a small extent, we also use persistent cookies (another type of small text file that is stored on your device), which remain on your device and enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our Website. These cookies are stored on your hard disk and are deleted automatically after a specified time. Their life span is between 1 month and 10 years. These cookies enable us to present our offering in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.
The following data and information is stored in the cookies:
- Login information
- Language settings
- Search terms entered
- Information about the number of visits to our Website and use of individual features on our Website.
When a cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number, but your personal data will not be mapped to this identification number. Your name, IP address or similar data that would allow the cookie to be traced to you does not get placed in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymised information.
You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance about cookies being set and can decide in individual cases whether you want to exclude cookies from being accepted in specific cases or in general, or can prevent cookies entirely. However, this may restrict the functionality of the Website.

3.5 Data in order for us to fulfil our contractual obligations
We process personal data that we need in order to fulfil our contractual obligations, such as name, address, email address, ordered products, and billing and payment data. This data needs to be collected in order to conclude the contract.
The data will be deleted after expiry of the warranty periods and statutory retention periods. Data that is associated with a user account (see below) will always be retained for the duration the account is maintained for.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 b) GDPR, because this data is required in order for use to be able to fulfil our contractual obligations to you.
For some services, you may be asked to register beforehand. After confirming your email address, you may then request the service.
If you have registered, you can log in with your credentials and will also receive an overview of your most recent enquiries.
If you would like to be able to do this, we will need the personal data that is requested during login. When logging in at a later point, only your email or user name and the password you have chosen will be required.
We collect the following data for new registrations: first name, email address, company name, password and password confirmation. Providing your telephone number for any further queries is voluntary.
To ensure you can log in properly and to prevent unauthorised logins by third parties, you will receive an activation link by email after registering, which you can use to activate your account. Only after you have successfully registered do we permanently store the data you have transmitted in our system.
Once a user account has been created, you can have us delete it at any time without incurring any costs other than any costs incurred in order to communicate with us, according to the basic tariffs. To do so, it is sufficient to send us a message in text form using the contact information listed under section 1 (e.g., email, fax, letter). We will then delete the personal data of yours that we have stored, provided that we do not have to store it in order to process an order or due to statutory retention obligations.
If you have not registered, no further data will be stored in the database.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 a) GDPR.
3.7 Contacting us
If you contact us (e.g., via our contact form or email), we will process your details in order to handle your enquiry and in the event that any follow-up questions arise.
If the data processing takes place in order to execute pre-contractual measures that are taking place at your request or, if you are already a customer of ours, in order to execute the contract between us, then the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 b) GDPR.
We will only process further personal data if you give your consent to this (Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 a) GDFPR) or we have a legitimate interest in the processing of your data (Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 f) GDPR). There is a legitimate interest, for example, in replying to your email.

5.1 Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google". Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files that are placed on your computer in order to analyse your use of our Website. The information the cookie generates about the use of this Website by the user is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.
We use Google Analytics on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in operating our Website economically.
As of 12th August 2020, Google has generally supported transfers of EU data to the USA on the basis of standard data protection clauses of the EU Commission.
We have enabled IP anonymisation on this Website (anonymizeIp). Your IP address will therefore be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement about the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Website, to compile reports on Website activities, and to provide us with additional services related to use of the Website and Internet usage.
The IP address provided by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google. You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the corresponding setting in your browser; however, we would like to point out that this may prevent you from fully utilising all features provided on this Website.
You can also prevent the data relating to your use of the Website that was generated by the cookie (including your IP address) from being transferred to Google, as well as the processing of such data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an alternative to the browser plug-in, or on mobile browsers, you can set an opt-out cookie by clicking on the following link, which will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data within this Website in the future (this opt-out cookie will only work in that browser and for that domain; If you delete the cookies in your browser, you must click this link again): [disable Google Analytics]
6 Retention period
Unless specifically stated, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary to carry out the intended purposes.
In some cases, the legislator stipulates that personal data must be retained, for example under tax law or commercial law. In these cases, the data will only be stored by us for these legal purposes, but will not be processed in any other way and will be deleted after expiry of the legal retention period.
