Relevant legal bases
Below you will find an overview of the legal bases of the GDPR, on the basis of which we process personal data.
Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, national data protection regulations may apply in your
or our country of residence or domicile. Furthermore, should more specific legal bases be relevant in individual
cases, we will inform you of these in the data protection declaration.
Legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) GDPR) - Processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, unless such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data.
In addition to the data protection regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation, national regulations on
data protection apply in Germany. These include, in particular, the Act on Protection against Misuse of Personal
Data in Data Processing (Federal Data Protection Act - BDSG). In particular, the BDSG contains special regulations
on the right to information, the right to erasure, the right to object, the processing of special categories of
personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission, as well as automated decision-making in individual
cases, including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for employment purposes (Section 26 BDSG), in
particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships as well as
the consent of employees. Furthermore, state data protection laws of the individual federal states may apply.
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into
account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the
processing, as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and
freedoms of natural persons, in order to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.
The measures include, in particular, safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by
controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as access to, input of, disclosure of, assurance of
availability of and segregation of the data. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of
data subjects' rights, the deletion of data, and responses to data compromise. Furthermore, we already take the
protection of personal data into account during the development or selection of hardware, software as well as
procedures in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technology design and through data
protection-friendly default settings.
TLS encryption (https): To protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use TLS encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address bar of your browser.
Deletion of data
The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as their consents
permitted for processing are revoked or other permissions cease to apply (e.g. if the purpose of processing this
data has ceased to apply, or it is not required for the purpose). If the data are not deleted because they are
required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be limited to these purposes. That is,
the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained
for reasons of commercial or tax law or whose storage is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal
claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person.
Our data protection notices may also contain further details on the retention and deletion of data, which take priority for the respective processing operations.
Provision of the online services and web hosting
We process users' data in order to provide them with our online services. For this purpose, we process the user's IP address, which is necessary to transmit the content and functions of our online services to the user's browser or terminal device.
Types of data processed: Usage data (e.g. web pages visited, interest in content, access times);
meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
Data subjects: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
Purposes of processing: provision of our online offer and user-friendliness; information technology infrastructure (operation and provision of information systems and technical devices (computers, servers, etc.).); security measures.
Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR).
Further notes on processes, procedures and services:
Provision of online offer on rented storage space: for the provision of our online offer, we use storage space, computing capacity and software that we rent or otherwise obtain from a corresponding server provider (also called "web hoster"); Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR).
Collection of access data and log files: Access to our online offer is logged in the form of so-called "server log files". The server log files may include the address and name of the web pages and files accessed, the date and time of access, data volumes transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP addresses and the requesting provider. The server log files may be used, on the one hand, for security purposes, e.g., to prevent server overload (especially in the event of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) and, on the other hand, to ensure the utilization of the servers and their stability; Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR); Deletion of data: Log file information is stored for a maximum period of 30 days and then deleted or anonymized. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes is exempt from deletion until final clarification of the respective incident.
