III. General Data Processing Information
1. Scope of processing of personal data
We only process the personal data of our users when this is necessary for the provision of a functional website along with our contents and services. As a rule, the processing of our users’ personal data is subject to the consent of our users. An exception applies in cases where it is not possible to acquire prior consent and the processing of the data is permitted by legal provisions.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Where we obtain the consent of the Data Subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis.
For the processing of personal data to fulfil a contract, whereby the contractual party is the Data Subject, Art. 6 (1) (b) of GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This also applies to processing necessary for pre-contractual measures.
Where the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation applying to our organisation, Art. 6 (1) (c) of GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the Data Subject or any other natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) (d) of GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our organisation or a third party, and if the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the Data Subject do not outweigh these legitimate interests, Art. 6 (1) (f) of GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing.
3. Data deletion and duration of storage
Personal data of the Data Subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage has expired or passed. Storage may continue beyond this time if this is provided for in European or national laws or regulations applying to the Controller. The blocking or deletion of data also takes place when a storage deadline prescribed by the named norms expires, except where it is necessary to continue storing data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.
IV. Provision of Website and Generation of Logfiles
1. Description and scope of data processingFor every retrieval of our web pages, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system used to retrieve the page(s).
The following data are collected:
(1) The user’s IP address
Data are stored in the logfile of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal basis for data processing Art. 6 (1) (f) of GDPR serves as the legal basis for the temporary storage of data and logfiles.
3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to allow for the delivery of the website to the user’s computer. The user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
The storage in logfiles is required in order to ensure the functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data in the logfiles are used to optimise the website and ensure the security of our information technology systems. There is no analysis of the data in this context for marketing purposes.
These purposes constitute legitimate interests on our part for the purpose of data processing according to GDPR Art. 6 (1) (f).
4. Duration of storage
Data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For data collected to provide the website, this is the case at the end of the session. For logfile storage of data, this is the case a maximum of 14 days after the data collection. Storage of the data beyond this point is not possible.
5. Withdrawal of consent and erasure of data
The collection of data to provide the website and the storage of data in logfiles is essential to the operation of the website. The user therefore does not have the opportunity to withdraw consent.
V. Usage of YouTube
We use the function provided by YouTube LLC (901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA; hereinafter “YouTube”) to embed YouTube videos on our website.
YouTube is a company affiliated with Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”).
This function displays videos stored at YouTube in an iFrame on the website. The “Privacy-Enhanced Mode” is activated for this. This prevents YouTube from storing information on visitors to the website. Information is only transmitted to YouTube, where it is stored, when you view a video.
Further information on the collection and usage of data by YouTube and Google, and about your rights in this regard and the possibilities open to you for the protection of your privacy, can be found in the YouTube privacy documentation ( www.youtube.com/t/privacy ).

8. Right to Withdraw Consent to Data Processing
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
