2. Data processing

2.1 Access data

The website operator or site provider collects data on access to the website on the basis of a legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) and saves these as “server log files” on the website's server.

By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to draw conclusions about you personally.

The following data is logged in this way:

  • Visited website
  • Time at the time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source / reference from which you came to the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used

The server log files are stored for a maximum of 14 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g., B. to clarify cases of abuse. If data have to be kept for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally resolved.

2.2 Collection of personal data

Personal data is collected to process a contact request, for advice and, if necessary, for technical service. This is done exclusively through your active participation, e.g. B. when filling out a contact form, whereby the following inventory data is recorded and saved:

  • Company name (optional)
  • Salutation addition (optional)
  • Surname, first name
  • Street, house number (optional)
  • Post code, place (optional)
  • Country (optional)
  • Telephone (optional)
  • Mobile (optional)
  • E-Mail

Only as little data as necessary is saved at any one time. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

2.3 E-Mails

Data is also collected and stored when you send emails to me.

2.4 Dealing with comments and contributions

If you leave a post or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is done on the basis of a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. Because if your comment violates applicable law, we could be prosecuted for why we have an interest in the identity of the author of the comment or contribution.

2.5 Safety Precautions

The security precautions include the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our servers.

2.6 Cookies

The website does not use cookies. Several tests have shown that this website does not use cookies.

If, contrary to expectations, cookies are found, for example the “cookieconsent_status” file, which only contains whether you have used a cookie banner, the following applies.

Some websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Functional cookies are used to make the website more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies used here are so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable your browser to be recognized the next time you visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

2.7 Links to other websites

There are links to external websites on my website. For these, the responsibility and liability lies with the respective operators or those named by them.

2.8 Linking social media via graphic or text references

We also advertise presences on the social networks listed below on our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents that when a website that has a social media application is called up, a connection is automatically established to the respective server of the social network in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. The user is only forwarded to the service of the respective social network by clicking on the corresponding graphic.

After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is recorded by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.

Initially, this includes data such as the IP address, date, time and the page visited. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator can, if necessary, assign the information collected from the specific visit of the user to the user's personal account. If the user interacts via a “share” button on the respective network, this information can be saved in the user's personal user account and, if necessary, published. If the user wants to prevent the information collected from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.
