6. E-MAIL AND CONTACT FORM
Due to legal requirements, we provide information on our website which enables quick electronic contact as well as direct communication with us. This includes both our e-mail address and our contact form. If you contact us by e-mail or using our contact form, the personal data transmitted by you is stored automatically. Other personal data processed in the course of your contact with us is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and ensure the security of our IT systems.

7. DATA SECURITY
We use a number of technical and organisational measures to secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. However, despite regular controls, complete protection against all risks is not possible and we cannot guarantee it. For this reason you may, at any time, provide us with your personal data by other means, for example by telephone or mail.
8. LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA
If we obtain your consent to personal data processing, Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR applies as the legal basis for processing personal data.
Article 6 (1)(b) GDPR is the legal basis for processing personal data that is required for the performance of a contract to which you are a party. This also applies to processing that is required for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1)(c) GDPR applies as the legal basis. If personal data processing is necessary to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person, Article. 6 (1)(d) GDPR applies as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not override the former interest, Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR applies as the legal basis for processing.
9. LEGITIMATE INTERESTS IN PROCESSING
Where the processing of your personal data is based on Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR, our legitimate interest, unless specified otherwise, is to conduct our business activities. Otherwise, we have stated our purposes and interests in each case in the context of the processing list above.
10. DATA ERASURE AND PERIOD OF RETENTION
Your personal data is erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of its retention no longer applies or you withdraw your consent. Data may also be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. If the retention purpose is not applicable, if you withdraw your consent or if a retention period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislative body expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements unless further retention of the data is needed to conclude a contract or fulfil a contract.
11. RIGHT OF ACCESS
You also have the right, at any time, to obtain information free of charge regarding the stored personal data relating to you and to receive a copy of this information. You also have the right of access regarding the following information:

- where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the
criteria used to determine that period,
- the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data relating to you or of a restriction
of processing by the data controller or of a right to object to such processing,
- the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority,
- where the personal data is not collected from the data subject, any available information as to its
- the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling as defined in Article 22 (1) and (4) of
the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.
You also have a right of access to information as to whether personal data has been transferred to any third country or international organisation. If this is the case, you also have the right to be given information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.
12. RIGHT TO RECTIFICATION
You have the right to request that incomplete personal data pertaining to you is completed and/or inaccurate data is rectified without delay. We must make the rectification without delay.
13. RIGHT TO RESTRICT PROCESSING
You have the right to obtain the restriction of processing by us if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period which allows the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of its use instead.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but it is required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate grounds of the data controller override those of the data subject.
If processing of your personal data has been restricted, this data – apart from being stored – may be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of significant public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If the restriction on processing was restricted in accordance with the conditions above, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
14. RIGHT TO ERASURE
You have the right to ask us to erase personal data pertaining to you without delay provided one of the following grounds applies and provided processing is not necessary:
- The personal data was collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longerrequired.
- The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing relies according to Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR, or Article 9 (2)(a) GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

- The personal data data was processed unlawfully.
- Erasure of the personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
- The personal data was collected in relation to the offer of information society services under Article 8 (1) of the GDPR.
Where we have made the personal data public and, as the controller, are obliged pursuant to Article 17 (1) GDPR to erase the personal data, we shall take reasonable steps including technical measures, taking the available technology and the cost of implementation into account, to inform other controllers who process the disclosed personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by these
other controllers of any links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data insofar as the processing is not necessary.
The right to erasure does not apply if processing is necessary:
- to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
- to fulfil a legal obligation which requires processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject, or to carry out a task which is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
- for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9 (2)(h) and (i) and Article 9 (3) GDPR;
- for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific research or historical research purposes or statistical purposes as defined in Article 89 (1) GDPR where the right referred to in paragraph a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of that processing; or
- for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
15. RIGHT TO BE INFORMED
If you have exercised the right to have us rectify, erase or to restrict processing, we are obliged to inform all the recipients to whom the personal data pertaining to you has been disclosed of this rectification, erasure or restriction on processing of the data unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to ask us to inform you of these recipients.
16. RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY
You have the right to receive personal data relating to you which you provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to request that we transmit this data to another controller without hindrance if the processing relies on consent as defined in Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR or Article 9 (2)(a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1)(b) GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, provided the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority vested in the data controller.
In exercising your right to data portability pursuant to Article 20 (1) GDPR, you also have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another provided this is technically feasible and does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
17. RIGHT TO OBJECT
You have the right, at any time, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6 (1)(e) or (f) GDPR, on grounds relating to your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on those provisions.
In the case of an objection we no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right, at any time, to object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to any profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to the processing by us for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
You have the right on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning you which we use for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) GDPR unless this processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
You can contact us at any time to exercise your right to object. In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
18. RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT
You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
19. RIGHT TO AUTOMATED INDIVIDUAL DECISION- MAKING, INCLUDING PROFILING
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which will have a legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you if the decision
- is not necessary for entering into or performing of a contract between you and ourselves or
- is authorised by Union or Member State law which applies to us and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
- is made with your explicit consent.
If the decision
- is necessary for entering into or performance of a contract between you and ourselves or
- is made with your explicit consent,
we will implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, and at least the right to obtain human intervention on our part, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.
20. EXISTENCE OF AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING
We do not undertake any automated decision making or profiling.
21. RIGHT TO LODGE A COMPLAINT WITH A SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.
22. LEGAL OR CONTRACTUAL REQUIREMENTS TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA. NECESSITY FOR THE CONCLUSION OF A CONTRACT. OBLIGATION OF THE DATA SUBJECT TO PROVIDE THE PERSONAL DATA. POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUCH DATA
We inform you that the provision of personal data is, in part, prescribed by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may arise from contractual provisions (e.g. information about the contractual partner). It is sometimes necessary, for the purposes of concluding a contract, for a data subject to provide us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, you are required to provide us with your personal data if you enter into a contract with us. Failure to provide your personal data would mean that the contract with you could not be concluded.
