3. Processing of your personal data

Firstly, we would like to state that we appoint service providers for processing your personal data, if necessary, with whom we have signed order processing contracts. If the processors carry out data processing in a third country (not within the EU), we ensure that the safety level of your data guaranteed by the GDPR is not undermined (article 44 ff of the GDPR).

We you access our website to just visit it, so-called logfiles are processed by automatically acquiring them from our system.
The following logfiles are automatically processed:

• Data quantity transferred
• Success or error in loading process

It is necessary to process the aforementioned data for the provision of our website. We also save the data for the safety of our IT systems. Our legitimate interest in processing data on a legal basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR is also justified for these purposes. The logfiles containing your IP address are immediately deleted or anonymised after they are no longer necessary for the aforementioned purposes, but at the latest after one year.

You can contact us via email, telephone or fax. Your personal data transmitted in this way is stored with us. The data is solely processed for contacting you.

In addition to the data that you disclose to us voluntarily, we receive the time (date and time) of your data transmission and your IP address.

This data, which we additionally obtain after contacting you, is deleted as soon as it is no longer required, and at the latest after the issues of your approach have been fully clarified.

You can inform us at any time (see clause 1 above) that we should delete the data disclosed to us during the conversation. In this case, all the personal data of the conversion will be deleted, if permissible, and it will not be possible to continue the conversation.

However, your right to delete does not exist if processing is required for the following reasons (exceptions):
