2. Types of Data Collection:
Your data is collected in two ways: firstly, through your active communication, for example, by entering information into a contact form. Secondly, data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit our website. This primarily includes technical data such as your internet browser, operating system, or the time of page access. This data collection happens automatically when you enter our website.
3. Data Collection on Our Website
a. Accessing Our Website
The provider of our website automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. The collected information, gathered without any action on your part and stored until automatic deletion, includes:
This data processing serves the following purposes:
No linking of this data with other data sources occurs. The collection of this data is based on Article 6(1)(f) of the DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically flawless presentation and optimization of its website, which requires the collection of server log files. In no case do we use the collected data to draw conclusions about your person. Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the specified purposes, and in any case, no later than 6 months.
b. Inquiry via Our Contact Form, Email, or Telephone
If you send us inquiries via our contact form, we will store the information you provide in the inquiry form, including your contact details. This data is stored by us for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. If you contact us by email or telephone, your request, including any resulting personal data, will also be stored and processed by us for the purpose of handling your request. We will not disclose this data to third parties without your explicit consent. The processing of data entered into the contact form is based solely on your consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or for the initiation or fulfillment of contractual relationships in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. An informal revocation by email to us is sufficient. You can also use our email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, for this purpose. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected. The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, withdraw your consent for storage, or the purpose of data storage no longer applies (e.g., after final processing of your inquiry). Mandatory legal provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.
c. Data Processing
We collect, process, and use personal data only if it is necessary for the establishment, content design, or modification of a legal relationship (so-called inventory data). This processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, which allows data processing for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures. Personal data related to the use of our websites (usage data) will only be collected, processed, and used by us to the extent necessary to enable the user to use the service or for billing purposes. The master data collected by us will be deleted after the completion of the mandate or termination of the business relationship, taking into account the applicable statutory retention periods.
4. Use of Data
Some of the data collected is used to ensure the smooth provision of the website and to rectify errors. Other data may be used for analyzing your user behavior.
5. Data Security
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and employ technical and organizational measures to safeguard your data against unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or any other unlawful processing. Our security measures are regularly reviewed and adjusted to current technological standards.
Some of the security measures implemented include:
Despite our efforts to ensure data security, no data transmission or storage on the internet is entirely free from risks. Therefore, we cannot guarantee absolute security for your data, but we do our best to protect your data to the best of our ability. In the event of data breaches, we will take immediate action in accordance with applicable legal regulations and our data protection measures, and we will notify you if necessary.

10. Transmission of Data to Third Countries
Your personal data may be transferred to third countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in certain cases. This transfer may occur for various reasons, including but not limited to:
Please be aware that third countries may not have the same level of data protection as in the EEA. In such cases, we take appropriate measures to ensure that your data is adequately protected. This includes using standard contractual clauses, Privacy Shields, or other suitable protective measures as required by data protection authorities, to guarantee that your data receives an appropriate level of protection.
