The responsible body in terms of data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is:
Purposes of data processing by the data controller and third parties
- you have given your express consent to this,
- the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you,
- processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation,
- the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the nondisclosure of your data.
Data processing in third countries only takes place if a recognised level of data protection in accordance with the standard of the GDPR is guaranteed in those countries. This guarantee exists, for example, with US processors that are certified under the “EU-US Privacy Shield” or if the data processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as contractual obligation through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, the existence of certifications, or binding internal data protection regulations.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here, or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Collection of general information when visiting our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, and the like. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you, and it is inevitable when using the internet. In particular, it is processed for the following purposes:
- ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
- ensuring the smooth use of our website,
- evaluating system security and stability, and
- for other administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest for the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The only recipients of the data are the responsible body and, where applicable, order processors.
Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our website and its technology.
Use of Matomo for web analysis
This website uses the web analysis service Matomo for the statistical evaluation of user accesses and page impressions.
For this analysis, Matomo uses so-called "cookies", i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie, for example about the previously accessed website (link source or referrer URL), file request (file name and URL), access date and time of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to the servers of our IT service provider Bergwerk IT and stored exclusively there for a limited period of time. Your IP address is immediately anonymised during this process and is not merged with other data, so that you remain anonymous as a user. The data collected in this way does not allow any conclusion to be drawn about your identity.
The purpose of the data processing is to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on website activities in order to optimise the website and the technology behind it. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
