Our system also collects data from you automatically, such as your visit to our website. This happens regardless of which device or software you use our website.

Any entry of data by you on our website is voluntary; there will be no disadvantages for you if you do not disclose your data. However, without certain data it is not possible for us to provide services or conclude contracts. We will inform you of such mandatory information.

On this website, the user’s personal data is only collected within the framework of applicable data protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The technical terms used in the text are explained in more detail in Article 4 of the GDPR.

Inventory data
We collect inventory data to the extent that it is necessary for the establishment, content design or change of a contractual relationship (including a free one) between us and the user. This may include: customer data (e.g. name, address), contact data (e.g. email address, telephone number), service data (e.g. service ordered, duration, fee). When establishing the usage relationship, we will request this data from you (e.g. name, address and email address) and also inform you to what extent the information is bindingly required to establish the usage relationship.

We also collect usage data to enable the user to use the services on our website. This can include: usage information (e.g. websites or areas accessed, length of visit, interest in services), content data (e.g. data entered or uploaded by you, texts, images, sounds, videos), metadata (e.g. Identity of your device, location, IP address).

We will only combine usage data if and to the extent this is necessary for billing purposes. Otherwise, we will only create usage data pseudonymously and only if you have not objected to this. You can send this objection at any time to the address given in the legal notice or to the person responsible named in this data protection declaration.

Initial contact by electronic request

If you contact us electronically (e.g. email, fax, telephone, messenger, etc.), we store and process the data that you have provided to us (e.g. name, contact information, content of the request ). The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in effective customer communication in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.
We will only pass on this data to third parties to the extent that it is necessary (according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR) for the fulfillment of the contract and this is in the overriding interest in effective service (according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit . f GDPR) or your consent (according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or another legal permission or obligation exists.
You can request information from us at any time, free of charge, about the purpose of processing, origin and, if applicable, recipient of your personal data. You can also request the correction, deletion and restriction of processing of your personal data. You can object to the (further) processing of your data at any time and have a right to data portability and a right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.
In principle, your data will only be stored for as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. Further storage is particularly possible if this is still necessary for legal prosecution or for legitimate interests or if there is a legal obligation to retain the data (e.g. tax retention periods, statute of limitations).


If we ask you for your consent to process your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible manner about the cases for which you give your consent. Any consent we ask for is voluntary; any benefit you would like to obtain by granting consent can also be obtained without consent, just ask us.

For any consent, you have the right to withdraw any consent you have given us to process your personal data at any time. This can be done through an informal message, e.g. B. via our contact form, an email to the email address specified in the legal notice or an unsubscribe link (if offered by us). Your revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to that point.

Storage period

In principle, your data will only be stored for as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. Further storage is particularly possible if this is still necessary for legal prosecution by us or for our other legitimate interests.
For your inventory data that was necessary to fulfill a contractual relationship (including a free one), this means that we will use it until the contractual relationship has been fully fulfilled or terminated, plus the limitation period (which is generally 2 or 3 years) plus an appropriate surcharge for any possible interruption save the statute of limitations.
For your usage data collected when you use the website, this means that we only store it for as long as it is still necessary for the proper functioning of our website and for as long as our legitimate interest suffices. We will primarily only store statistical information pseudonymously.
We also store your data to the extent we are legally obliged to do so. These are in particular the tax retention periods, which are generally 6 or even 10 years.

This extension ensures that the IP address is anonymized by shortening it and excludes any direct personal reference. Through the extension, Google’s IP address is shortened beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the corresponding browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
