General Information

Pursuant to our statutory obligations, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data.

When you use our website, personal data about you will be collected. This may happen by you entering the data yourself, for example your e-mail address. But our system also collects your data automatically, for example whenever you visit our website. This happens irrespective of the device or the software that you use to visit our website.

All data that you enter in our app is provided voluntarily; there are no disadvantages to you if you do not provide data. But without certain data, we are unable to provide services or to conclude contracts. Whenever such information is necessary, we will point it out to you.

On this website, the user’s personal data is only collected within the framework of the existing data-protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal terms used in the text are defined in Art. 4 of the GDPR.

The GDPR allows data processing in three cases in particular:

Inventory Data

We collect inventory data as far as it is necessary to establish, negotiate or amend a contract (including one without remuneration) between us and the user. This can be: customer data (for example name, address), contact data (for example e-mail address, phone number), service data (for example services ordered, duration, payment). Upon establishing the user relationship, we will ask you for this data (for example name, address and e-mail address) and will also tell you which of the information is required to establish the user relationship.

Usage Data

We also collect usage data to allow users to use the services on our website. These may consist of: usage information (for example visited websites or parts, duration of visit, interest in services), content data (for example data, text, images, sounds, videos entered or uploaded by you), meta data (for example identity of your device, location, IP address).

We will only combine usage data if and insofar as it is necessary for billing purposes. Otherwise, we will only put together usage data pseudonymously and only insofar as you have not objected. You may send this objection to the address indicated in the “About Us” section or the responsible authority indicated in this Privacy Policy at any time.

The legal basis for this data processing are our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR in analysing the website and your use, possibly also the statutory permission to store data as part of the negotiation of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

Hoster

1&1 IONOS SE

Our Website is presented in the Internet by a service provider. We use the service of 1&1 IONOS SE, Elgendorfer Str. 57, 56410 Montabaur, Germany. We have concluded a data processing agreement with our provider. With this contract, our provider is obliged to process the data according to our instructions. You can find more information on data processing at our provider in his privacy policy at https://www.ionos.de/terms-gtc/terms-privacy. The legal basis for this data processing is on the one hand our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimization in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, and, on the other hand, our contractual or pre-contractual legal relationship in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
Furthermore, our provider stores information, the so-called server log files, each time the website is used; this is information which is automatically transferred by your browser. In detail, this data consists of:

This data will only be used for statistical purposes and do not allow us to identify you as a user.“

Webflow

On behalf of our legitimate interest in a technically flawless online service and its economically efficient design and optimization acc. to art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR we have built this website with the CMS system Webflow by Webflow Inc., 398 11th Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, California, 94103, USA.

Webflow enables us to create our website and keep it available for access in Webflow's worldwide hosting network. Webflow collects usage data like any other host. This is identified and unidentifiable data when you visit our website. These are either made available to Webflow or automatically recorded through the use of Webflow services ("non-personal data"). On the basis of such non-personal data, it is not possible for Webflow to understand who the data came from. The non-personal data is technical information and usage information, e.g. the browsing and clickstream behavior of visitors and users of services and scrolls as well as non-identifying data about the device used, operating system, browser, screen resolution, language and keyboard settings, Internet providers, referral / exit pages, date / time stamp, etc. of the user or visitor.

As a hoster, Webflow also collects data that can identify a person with manageable effort ("personal data"). In principle, this personal data is all data that you enter when using the website. This can include contact details (e.g. email address or telephone number), billing data (name, billing address, payment method and bank details), data relating to a browser or user session (IP address, geographical location and / or unique identifier of the device), data relating to related accounts of third parties (such as the email address or username for a related PayPal, Google or Facebook account), scanned ID documents provided to us (e.g. ID card, driver's license, passport or official documents for company registration), and any other personal data.

When using this provider, it may happen that your data is transferred to the USA. However, this provider is certified according to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework. This means that the transfer of data to the USA is possible in a legally secure manner on the basis of the adequacy decision concluded on 10.07.2023.



We have concluded an data processing agreement with this provider, according to which this provider will only process your data on our behalf within the scope of the GDPR and according to our instructions. 

Our Website-System provider takes physical, electronic and procedural security measures to protect personal data. Among other things, our Website-System provider only offers encrypted access to our website.

You can find more information on Webflow's data processing in Webflow's privacy policy https://webflow.com/legal/eu-privacy-policy.

Advertisements

Before sending you advertisements, we will ask for your explicit consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, except in cases of advertisements for similar products to the one you already acquired. This will happen in particular when you grant us consent to mail our newsletter or when you fill out a contact form. You may withdraw your consent at any time in accordance with the subsequent section “Consent”.
INSOFAR AS WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING, YOU MAY ALSO OBJECT TO THE USE OF YOUR DATA FOR THAT PURPOSE AT ANY TIME. THIS MAY BE DONE THROUGH ANY OF OUR MEANS OF CONTACT, PARTICULARLY BY E-MAIL TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS LISTED IN THE “LEGAL NOTICE” SECTION WITHOUT ANY FORMAL REQUIREMENTS. WE WILL THEN NO LONGER USE YOUR DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING.

First Contact through Electronic Request

If you contact us in electronic form (for example by mail, fax, phone, messenger, etc.), we store and process the data which you have given us (for example name, contact information, content of the request). This is based on our legitimate interest in an effective communication with customers in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR and, as far as it concerns a request to enter into or to perform a contract, also with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
We will only pass on this data to third parties as far as required for the performance of the contract (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR), by the overwhelming interest in effective services (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR) or based on your consent (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR) or if there is another legal permission or obligation.
You may ask us at any time and without any cost to provide information about the purpose of the processing, the origin and the recipient, if any, of your data. You may also request that we correct, delete or limit the processing of your personal data. You may object against the (further) processing of your data at any time and you have a right for the data to be made transferable as well as the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory agency.
In general, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. A longer storage is an option, in particular when required in order to pursue our rights, for other legitimate interests of ours or when there is a statutory duty to keep the data longer (for example record-keeping under tax law, statute of limitations).

Consent

Whenever we ask you for your consent for the processing of your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible way about the cases for which you will be granting your consent. Any consent that we ask you for is voluntary. Any advantage that you wish to gain by granting consent is also available without consent; simply ask us.

Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

Storage Period

Generally, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. Storage beyond that is possible in particular if it is still required for pursuing our rights or for other legitimate interests of ours.
For your inventory data which were necessary to perform a contract (including one without remuneration), this means that we store this data until the complete performance or termination of the contractual relationship plus the limitation period (which is generally 2 or 3 years) plus an adequate extra time for potential interruptions of the limitation period.
For your usage data which was collected in the course of your use of the website, this means that we will store it only for the time still required for the proper functionality of our website and as long as we still have a legitimate interest. Statistical information will be primarily stored by us in pseudonymous form.
Beyond that, we still store your data for as long as we are required to do so by law. This concerns in particular the tax-law requirements to keep records, usually for 6 or even 10 years.

Upon opening the website, we have asked you to consent to the storing of certain cookies which will be placed while you visit our website. Based on your consent pursuant to Art 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, our website thus uses cookies, so that our offer can be used in a better, more effective and more secure way.

If your data are transferred to third parties, this is mentioned in this privacy policy.

Transfer to other countries, particularly USA

Our website uses external providers located outside of the EU for different features. In particular, the use of cookies, active Java scripts and other technology can lead to processing and storage of your data outside of the EU. But we will not transfer your data to a third country, unless the EU Commission has determined that there is a similar level of data protection as in the EU or unless you have provided us with your informed consent or we have agreed on the standard contractual clauses for the protection of your data with the provider.

Deletion, Correction, Limitation

You may at any time demand from us that we correct (or complete) incorrect data as well as a limitation of the processing of data or deletion of your data.

We will then correct, block or even delete your personal data without delay as far as permitted by law.

The right to object to advertisement is governed by our text regarding consent:
Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time.

However, we have ensured that your data is only transferred to the USA on the basis of a contract in accordance with the standard contractual clauses. According to the GDPR and the EuGH, this is a legal basis for the transfer of data to the USA. This applies in particular since the US Presidential Decree of 07.10.2022. 

We have concluded an data processing agreement with this provider https://www.mapbox.com/legal/dpa/ , according to which this provider will only process your data on our behalf within the scope of the GDPR and according to our instructions.

MapBox only uses this data to analyse and to improve the use of the maps. Further information about how MapBox uses your data can be found in the privacy policy of MapBox at https://www.mapbox.com/privacy/ as well as the information provided by MapBox about the use of API data https://www.mapbox.com/telemetry/.
