Provision of the website and generation of logfiles
Each time the website is accessed my system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected here:

  • Information about the browser type and the used version
  • The operating system of the user
  • The Internet service provider of the user
  • The IP-address of the user
  • Date and time of the access
  • Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
  • Websites accessed by the user’s system via our website

The data is saved in logfiles with my service provider: netcup GmbH, Daimlerstraße 25, 76185 Karlsruhe. Legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is art. 6 sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The temporary storage of the ip-address through the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. Therefore the user’s ip-address has to be saved for the duration of the session. In these purposes also lies my legitimate interest in data processing according to art. 6 sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
The storage of the above stated data in logfiles happens to ensure the functionality of my website. Furthermore these data serve the optimation of the website and the guarantee of the security of the information technology systems (e.g. attack detection). In these purposes also lies the legitimate interest in data processing according to art. 6 sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. Logfiles are saved for seven days.
The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in logfiles is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility of objection on the part of the user. 

Cookies are used on the website. Cookies are small text files, which are associated and saved on your hard drive to the browser used by you through a characteristic character string and through which the place, the cookie sets, certain information are entered. Cookies cannot perform software or communicate viruses on your computer and therefore are not able to cause damage. They serve to make the website overall more user-friendly and more effective, so to make it more pleasant for you. Cookies can contain data, which make a recognition of the used devices possible. Partly cookies just include data to certain settings, which are not related to persons. Cookies cannot directly identify a user. One distinguishes between session-cookies, which are deleted again, as soon as you close your browser and permanent cookies, which are saved beyond the single session.
Legal basis for cookies, which are absolutely necessary, to provide the explicitly requested service for you, is § 25 sect. 2 no. 2 TTDSG. Each usage of cookies, which for this purpose is not absolutely technically necessary, represents a data handling, which is only permitted with an explicit and active consent of you, according to § 25 sect. 1 TTDSG associated with art. 6 sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. a GDPR. Furthermore your personal data, processed through cookies, are only forwarded to third parties, if you according to art. 6 sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. a GDPR give an explicit permition for this.
Name of the cookie: django_language / Purpose: This cookie is set to save the user settings for the selected language and, if applicable, from which language the link was forwarded. / Storage duration: session

Rights of the person affected
You have according to art. 15 GDPR the right to get information about your personal saved data. If false personal data were processed, you have according to art. 15 GDPR the right of correction.
If the legal requirements are existing, you can demand the deletion or limitation of the processing, plus enter an objection against the data processing (art. 17, 18 and 21 GDPR). According to art. 20 GDPR you can claim the right of data portability with data, which are automatically processed on the basis of your consent or a contract with you.
If you think, that a data processing contravened against the data protection law, you have the right to complain with a data privacy regulatory body of your choice (art. 77 GDPR in association with § 19 BDSG). Hereto also belongs the responsible data privacy regulatory body for me: saxon privacy officer,


Part II: Data processing beyond the website

Communication and contractual performance
I process your personal data on the basis of art. 6 sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The processing serves the execution of the contracts or the pre-contractual steps with you and the conducting of your assignment, plus all therefor necessary activities with me. You can take the respective details for the purpose of data processing from respective contract documents and business conditions. Furthermore the as part of a contacting transmitted personal data are processed. Legal basis is art. 6. sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. f) GDPR. This is legal, as long as the processing is necessary for the protection of my eligible interests or the ones of a third party, as far as their interests or basic rights and fundmental freedoms, which require the protection of personal data, do not predominate. Such a justified interest exists in the assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes, in the execution of payment processing via external service providers, in guaranteeing IT security and IT operations of my company and in direct advertising. Furthermore personal data are processed according to art. 6 sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. c) GDPR, as long as this is necessary for the fulfillment of legal obligations, which I as entrepreneur am subject to. To the obligations of processing i.a. belong e.g. commercial and tax law principles according to § 257 German Commercial Code (HGB) and § 147 tax code (AO).
Within my company these locations get access to your data, who need them for the fulfillment of contractual and legal obligations. Also by me appointed order processors (art. 28 GDPR) can get data because of these purposes. These are companies in the categories IT-services, logistics, encashment, distribution and marketing. In exceptional cases also persons whose profession swears them to secrecy (tax accountants, auditors, lawyers) and administrative bodies can be recipients of your data.
If necessary I process and save your personal data for the duration of the business relation. This also involves the initiation and processing of the contract. Furthermore I save your personal data for the duration of warranty and guarantee claims. In addition I save your personal data as far as I am legally obliged. Corresponding verification and storage duties reveal especially from commercial and tax law reasons after § 257 Commercial code (HGB) and § 247 tax code (AO).
The processing of personal data is necessary for the communication, the explanation and the performance of the contract. Without the provision of your personal data I normally need to refuse the conclusion of the contract or cannot perform an existing contract or rather need to finish it.


Part III: Information about your right of objection according to art. 21 GDPR

You have the right to enter an objection against the processing of personal data, which you concern, according to art. 6 sect. 1 cl. 1 lit. f) GDPR (data handling on the basis of a weighing of interests), because of reasons, which reveal from your special situation, anytime. If you enter an objection, we will not process your personal data anylonger, except we can prove compelling reasons worth being protected, which predominate your interests, rights and lieberties, or the processing serves the enforcement, exercise or defense of legal claims.
In individual cases we process your personal data, to conduct direct advertising. You have the right to enter objection against the processing of you concering data for the purpose of such advertisement. If you object the processing for the purpose of direct advertising, we will not process your personal data for these purposes anylonger.
The objection can happen in free form and should preferably be addressed to the contact details mentionend, in the section »Name and contact of the person responsible«, above.
