The terms used are to be understood as gender-neutral. In short: We inform you comprehensively about data we process about you. Privacy statements usually sound very technical and use legal terminology. This privacy statement, on the other hand, is intended to describe the most important things to you as simply and transparently as possible. To the extent that it is conducive to transparency, technical terms are explained in a reader-friendly manner, links to further information are provided and graphics are used. In this way, we inform you in clear and simple language that we only process personal data in the course of our business activities if there is a corresponding legal basis. This is certainly not possible by providing the most concise, unclear and legalistic explanations possible, as is often standard practice on the Internet when it comes to data protection. We hope you find the following explanations interesting and informative, and perhaps there is one or two pieces of information that you did not yet know. If questions nevertheless remain, we would like to ask you to contact the responsible office named below or in the imprint, to follow the existing links and to look at further information on third-party sites.

Scope of application
- all online presences (websites) that we operate
- social media presences and email communications
- Mobile apps for smartphones and other devices
In short: The data protection declaration applies to all areas in which personal data is processed in the company via the aforementioned channels in a structured manner. If we enter into legal relationships with you outside of these channels, we will inform you separately as appropriate.
In the following privacy statement, we provide you with transparent information on the legal principles and regulations, i.e. the legal bases of the General Data Protection Regulation, which enable us to process personal data. As far as EU law is concerned, we refer to REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 April 2016, which you can of course read online on EUR-Lex, the access to EU law, at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32016R0679. We only process your data if at least one of the following conditions applies:
- Consent (Article 6(1)(a) DSGVO): You have given us your consent to process data for a specific purpose. An example would be the storage of your entered data of a contact form.
- Contract (Article 6(1) lit. b) DSGVO): In order to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual obligations with you, we process your data. For example, if we conclude a purchase contract with you, we need personal information in advance.
- Legal obligation (Article 6(1)(c) DSGVO): If we are subject to a legal obligation, we process your data. For example, we are legally obliged to keep invoices for accounting purposes. These usually contain personal data.
- Legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO): In the case of legitimate interests that do not restrict your fundamental rights, we reserve the right to process personal data. For example, we need to process certain data in order to operate our website in a secure and economically efficient manner. This processing is therefore a legitimate interest.
Other conditions, such as the performance of recordings in the public interest and the exercise of official authority, as well as the protection of vital interests, do not generally arise for us. If such a legal basis should nevertheless be relevant, it will be indicated at the appropriate place. In addition to the EU Regulation, national laws also apply:
- In Germany, the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) applies.
If other regional or national laws apply, we will inform you about them in the following sections.

Security of data processing
To protect personal data, we have implemented both technical and organizational measures. Where possible, we encrypt or pseudonymize personal data. In this way, we make it as difficult as possible, within the scope of our possibilities, for third parties to infer personal information from our data. Article 25 of the GDPR refers to „data protection through technical design and data protection-friendly default settings“ and thus means that both software (e.g., forms) and hardware (e.g., access to the server room) should always be designed with security in mind and that appropriate measures should be taken. In the following, we will go into more detail on specific measures, if necessary.
TLS encryption with https
TLS, encryption and https sound very technical and they are. We use HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure stands for „secure hypertext transfer protocol“) to transfer data over the Internet in a tap-proof manner. This means that the complete transmission of all data from your browser to our web server is secured – no one can „listen in“. Thus, we have implemented an additional layer of security and fulfill data protection by design of technology Article 25(1) DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this protection of data transmission by the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser, to the left of the Internet address (e.g., beispielseite.de) and the use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our Internet address. If you want to know more about encryption, we recommend a Google search for „Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure wiki“ to get good links to further information.

Web Hosting Introduction
👥 Data subjects: visitors to the website
What is web hosting?
When you visit websites these days, certain information – including personal data – is automatically created and stored, including on this website. This data should be processed as sparingly as possible and only with justification. By website, by the way, we mean the entirety of all web pages on a domain, i.e. everything from the home page (homepage) to the very last subpage (like this one). By domain, we mean, for example, example.de or sampleexample.com. If you want to view a website on a screen, you use a program called a web browser to do it. You probably know some web browsers by name: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari. This web browser needs to connect to another computer where the website’s code is stored: the web server. Running a web server is a complicated and costly task, which is why this is usually done by professional providers, the providers. These offer web hosting and thus ensure reliable and error-free storage of website data. When the browser on your computer (desktop, laptop, smartphone) connects and during data transfer to and from the web server, personal data may be processed. On the one hand, your computer stores data, and on the other hand, the web server also needs to store data for a while to ensure proper operation. To illustrate:
Why do we process personal data?
The purposes of data processing are:
- Professional hosting of the website and safeguarding its operation
- to maintain operational and IT security
- Anonymous evaluation of access behavior to improve our offer and, if necessary, for law enforcement or prosecution of claims
What data is processed?
Even while you are visiting our website right now, our web server, which is the computer on which this website is stored, usually automatically stores data such as
- the complete Internet address (URL) of the website you are visiting (e.g. https://www.beispielwebsite.de/beispielunterseite.html?tid=311908254)
- browser and browser version (e.g. Chrome 87)
- the operating system used (e.g. Windows 10)
- the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL) (e.g. https://www.beispielquellsite.de/vondabinichgekommen.html/)
- the host name and IP address of the device being accessed (e.g. COMPUTERNAME and 184.108.40.206)
- date and time
Vin files, the so-called web server log files
How long is data stored?
As a rule, the above data is stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not share this data, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed by authorities in the event of unlawful behavior. In short: your visit is logged by our provider (company that runs our website on special computers (servers)), but we do not share your data without consent!
The lawfulness of the processing of personal data in the context of web hosting results from Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO (protection of legitimate interests), because the use of professional hosting with a provider is necessary to present the company on the Internet in a secure and user-friendly manner and to be able to pursue attacks and claims from this if necessary. Between us and the hosting provider there is usually a contract on commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 f. DSGVO, which ensures compliance with data protection and guarantees data security.
