When you contact us via post, telephone, email or contact form, the information you provide (your email address, your name and your telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us to answer your questions. We delete the data gathered in this context once its storage is no longer necessary or we restrict its processing should statutory retention obligations exist. Furthermore, we collect and use personal data of the data subjects and users of our website only - among others, to provide a functioning website - as far as this is necessary in the context of our contents and services or in the context of a contract fulfilment. The collection and use of personal data from the data subjects and users of our website can generally only take place once consent has been granted by the users. An exception applies in cases where prior consent cannot be given for practical reasons and/or the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

1.4. Should we wish to make use of subcontracted service providers for individual features of our offer, or use your information for promotional purposes, we will subsequently inform you about the respective processes in detail. In doing so we will also indicate the fixed criteria for the storage period.

2. Your rights – Legal grounds

2.1. You have the following rights in relation to us with regard to your personal data:

- Right to access
- Right to rectification or erasure
- Right to restriction of processing
- Right to objection to processing
- Right to data transferability

2.2. You also have the right to complain about our processing of your personal data to a data protection monitoring body.

2.3. Where we obtain consent from the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR provides the legal grounds for the processing of personal data. When processing personal data required for the performance of a contract in which the data subject is a contracting party, Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR provides the legal grounds. This also applies to processing procedures required for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Where the processing of personal data is required for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1)(c) GDPR provides the legal grounds. In the case that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person render the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1)(d) GDPR provides the legal grounds. If the processing is required to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-named interests, Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR provides the legal grounds for processing.
