3.     Legal basis for the processing of personal data

We process your personal data, e.g. your name and first name, your e-mail address and IP address, etc. only if there is a legal basis for this.  In particular, the following provisions can be considered under the General Data Protection Regulation:

However, we will always remind you at the relevant points of this data protection declaration on which legal basis the processing of your personal data takes place.

4.     Disclosure of personal data

The transfer of personal data is also processing within the meaning of the previous paragraph 3. At this point, however, we would like to inform you separately about the topic of disclosure to third parties. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. For this reason, we are particularly careful when it comes to passing on your data to third parties.

A transfer to third parties is therefore only made if there is a legal basis for the processing. For example, we share personal data with persons or companies that work for us as processors in accordance with Article 28 GDPR. Processor is anyone who processes personal data on our behalf for us, in particular in a relationship of instruction and control with us

In accordance with the provisions of the GDPR, we enter into a contract with each of our processors in order to oblige them to comply with data protection regulations and thus to provide your data with comprehensive protection.

5.     Storage time and deletion

Your personal data will be deleted by us insofar as it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed, the processing is not necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

6.     SSL encryption

This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as .B requests you send to us as a website operator.
