Declaration on the obligation to provide information (data protection declaration)
The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (DSGVO, TKG 2003). In this data protection information we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing on our website.
Contact with us
If you contact us by form on the website or by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored with us for six months for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
Image recordings at events
We would like to point out that photographs and video recordings are made at our events. We use these to present our activities, for reporting purposes and for public relations. For this purpose, the recordings are published on our website, our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and in various print and online media. The legal basis for processing the photo and video data from you is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, as there is a legitimate interest in informing the public about our activities and documenting them. Recipients of this data are internally the employees entrusted with public relations and externally the responsible press staff as well as editorial offices and editorial systems of print and online media and internationally operating social media providers.
We would like to point out that for the purpose of simplifying the purchasing process and for subsequent contract processing the webshop operator stores the IP data of the subscriber within the framework of cookies, as well as the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address of the purchaser.
In addition, the following data will also be stored by us for the purpose of contract processing: Special notes (marked field) made by you in the course of ordering via the webshop. The data provided by you is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or for the execution of pre-contractual measures. Without these data we cannot conclude the contract with you. Data will not be transmitted to third parties, with the exception of the transmission of credit card data to the processing bank institutions/payment service providers for the purpose of debiting the purchase price, to the transport company/shipping company commissioned by us for the delivery of the goods and to our tax consultant for the fulfilment of our tax obligations.
After the purchase process is aborted, the data stored by us will be deleted. In the event of a contract being concluded, all data from the contractual relationship will be stored until the expiry of the tax retention period (7 years).
The data name, address, goods purchased and date of purchase will also be stored until the expiry of product liability (10 years). Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 Paragraph 3 TKG and Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and/or lit b (necessary for contract fulfilment) of the DSGVO.
Any images and video recordings made of you will be stored internally by us for as long as it’s necessary for the purposes for which they are processed.
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your mobile device using the browser. They’re not doing any damage.
If you do not wish this, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be limited.
Use of IP addresses
Your IP address is recorded, but pseudonymised immediately, e.g. by deleting the last 8 bits. This means that only a rough localization is possible.
For non-European providers
The relationship with the web analytics provider is based on standard contractual clauses/an adequacy decision of the European Commission (e.g. in the case of the USA: “Privacy Shield”). Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 Paragraph 3 TKG and Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO. Our concern in the sense of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised. Pseudonymisation is recommended for the legal reason “legitimate interest”; this must be
clarified with the web analysis service.
If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that newsletters are sent out in agreement. In the course of this, the potential recipient can be included in a distribution list. Subsequently, the user receives the opportunity to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner by means of a confirmation e-mail. The address is only actively included in the distribution list if it is confirmed. We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and offers.
