II. Provision of the website and generation of logfiles

1. Description and scope of data processing

Every time our Internet page is called up, our system automatically records data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data is collected:
• Information on the browser type and the version used
• The operating system of the user
• The Internet service provider of the user
• The IP address of the user
• Date and time of access
• Websites from which the system of the user reaches our Internet page
• Websites which are called up by the system of the user via our website

The data is likewise stored in the logfiles of our system. The saving of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place. Furthermore, we integrate the “Adobe Typekit” service. Among other things, Adobe Typekit allows fonts to be loaded and incorporated on the website. This a necessary technical function.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and logfiles is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. This is also the legal basis for the integration of Adobe Typekit.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. Storage on logfiles is carried out to ensure the functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data also assists us in optimizing the website and in ensuring the security of our information technology systems. Data evaluation for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. It is in these purposes that our legitimate interest in data processing lies according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

4. Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of its collection. With respect to recording data for delivery of the website, the data is deleted when the relevant session has ended. In the case of data storage in logfiles, the data is deleted after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or modified, so that allocation to the calling clients is no longer possible.

III. Contact form and email contact

Our website contains a contact form which can be used for contacting us electronically. If a user makes use of this, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and saved. This data is as follows:

• Street, postcode, town/city
• Email address
• Telephone
• Your message

At the time of sending the message the following data will also be saved:

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of data which is transmitted when sending an email is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. If the email contact has the aim of concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The processing of personal data from the input mask is only carried out for the purpose of dealing with the communication.

Other personal data processed when taking up contact serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the safety of our information technology systems.

4. Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of its collection. For personal data from the input mask of the contact form and that which has been sent by email, the data will be deleted when the relevant conversation with the user has ended.

• The website from which the user has reached the called-up website (referrer)
• The subpages which are opened up from the called-up website

The anonymisation of the IP address sufficiently takes account of the users’ interest in protecting their personal data.
