3. Objection to advertising emails

4. Data collection on our website

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data does not get merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Article 6 (1) f GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or precontractual measures.

Contact form and email
If you send us inquiries via a contact form or email, your personal data from the inquiry form or email, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions.

We use your data exclusively for the desired contact. The data will not be used by third parties.

The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Article 6 (1) a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. An informal message to us by email is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the withdrawal of consent remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you ask us to delete it, withdraw your consent to the storage, or the purpose for the data storage expires (such as after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.
